***Update 2017*** Citronella is currently under new ownership and is being beautifully renovated. We will begin taking new reservations on December 1, 2017. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Thank you, Mangament. Our very private and secluded cottages provide a unique experience for Jamaica travelers who need a lot of space and privacy. Located in Negril and beautifully carved into volcanic cliffs that sit 50 ft above the Caribbean Sea, this very secluded resort offers three acres of lush tropical landscape with sea breezes, quite caves, secluded coves, grottoes, and most of all privacy.

Fine! If I can't lie and say it was horrible, then I guess i have to tell you how wonderful this place is. I had no idea when we booked the resort how great it was going to be, but as the days got closer to vacation and the communication was so great and positive, I knew we were in for a treat. We had booked two cottages for our group and as it got closer we were informed that they would be doing repair on those cottages and we could stay in another (another bigger, even more awesome cabin!) Um, yes! We were also told that since we happened to be the only folks at the resort on those days, we could have the run of the place, and to make ourselves at home. Our cottage overlooked the gorgeous blue water and we woke every morning to the sounds of waves below. There was always a cool breeze and lots of fans in the cottage, so we were never hot, even without AC. Who needs it?! Having a kitchen and full fridge was wonderful, because honestly, we really needed to keep our drinks cold. ;) The grounds were immaculately landscaped, with fruit trees and flowers blooming everywhere and quiet stone paths to get here and there, although we loved to walk barefooted in the super thick, spongy grass. The staff was amazing and Colette was there to greet us when we arrived and even cooked us a delicious breakfast one morning. Hassan was the go-to guy and was there for anything we needed. Errol (or "Snoop" as we affectionately nicknamed him), was the security guard and was always keeping an eye on the place. We laughed that it was like "wheres waldo" because he was always around , no matter where you were. It was nice to know he was close by at all times. I honestly, don't think he even slept. The resort was in the perfect location! We could sit in the pool and hear the music and watch the divers at Ricks without having to fight the crowd. We could walk out the gate of the resort and be at a restaurant in 30 seconds. A couple minute cab ride to the beach or shopping, or just quiet solitude and the sounds of waves back home at the resort. We were definitely spoiled by being the only ones there. Every cove was ours. private cliff diving, seaside showers, caves, it was all ours. this place truly is heaven on earth. There are approximately 5 cottages available to rent, and a bunch more on the property, some of which they are renovating now. This place IS a fabulous resort and has serious potential to be a first class 5 star resort (which it already is, in our hearts and minds.) Half of me wants to see what all they can do with this place (because it has ENDLESS possibilities) and half of me wants them to keep it small and personal. All I know, is I can't wait to get back there, and i return in my mind almost daily. Our group still talks about it every single conversation we have together, it truly did have a HUGE impact on us and we will forever love Citronella and its staff.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights starting on April 18th. -We absolutely loved it! -Stayed in the Round House (on the corner of the property) -The staff was extremely friendly (Especially the security) -Had complete privacy -No one bothers you -Great location, Sir D's (one of the best bars in Negril) is a 2 min. walk as well as LTU Pub (ordered a lot of meals from there, they open early for breakfast as well) -The views are INCREDIBLE -The house was perfect -Ice cold fridge for keeping beers chilled -Nicely landscaped grounds -We paid $175 per night (slow season rate), but I think the rates are going up in price with new owners/renovations -Warm showers -Loved the ocean platform and swimming access -Hired a private yoga instructor for my wife to come to our place every morning -Plenty of shade in yard next to Round house We will be back as long as the prices don't go up too high. Love the property for its "rustic" feel and bang for the buck! Please don't change that! We don't need fancy, the location and views are enough!

Stayed in one of the duplex Conch houses, large enough for a family of four, great views. We have been coming to Citronella for more than 10 years, a lot of improvements have just been done on the property which makes this place even better!

I have been meaning to write a review for some time. We stayed at Citronella several years ago and had a fantastic time. If you are looking for an intimate, unique experience, rather than a generic resort, this is the place! Citronella has its very own cove with dramatic cliffs and gorgeous water. We found it very peaceful and relaxing. There were other guests but we rarely saw them so it feels very private. You can stock up the refrigerator and make your own meals, or ask Colette to cook a special meal. She is a great cook! We hope to come back soon!

I've stayed in Negril before but Citronella was my favorite place to stay so far. Wake up and enjoy the sea, snorkel and relax. Easy access to restaurants yet we found that our favorite dining was on site with Colette. The staff will help you with excursions with a better rate than I've seen at the beach. If you want to get down, Rick's cafe is right there. Rick's did not make too much noise past sunset so it was good for me and my parents on this trip. Further down the road we found the best pastries. When I come back to West End, this will be my first choice.
