I am a frequent traveler to Negril, but this was my first trip with my mom and sister and my first stay at the Tree House. When planning this trip (for my sister's 40th), I wanted something different from where I ususally stay and then Tree House offered a great Groupon deal. Sold! I worked with Cynthia very closely in planning and she was super helpful, always responsive and a pleasure to deal with.
When we arrived, check in was a breeze and Jermaine gathered all of our bags - and with three women, you know there were a lot of them - and led us to our room. We had booked a Garden View suite and I have to admit that at first I was a little disappointed. Our garden view from our balcony was of the solar water heaters and we were in the back part of the property. My disappointment lasted about 5 minutes - we LOVED our room and spent a lot of time on the HUGE balcony, swinging in the hammock swings, talking and enjoying the rum. The only issue I can see with the layout is that the balcony is not private, but runs the length of the building. Each suite has its own set of chairs, swings and a couch, but there is no wall or other barrier between them. We were fortunate that the people next to us seemed to prefer watching tv and were never on their balcony, but I could see where that might me an issue for some.
The rest of the room was perfect for our needs - fridge, microwave and we asked housekeeping for some utensils and a blender. No problem! The suite had one big bedroom, two bathrooms and then the living area which had two Murphy beds. Again - absolutely perfect for us - mom had the bedroom and sis and I used the Murphy beds (which were a little hard, but not unbearable). We never felt crowded and having the two bathrooms was a godsend!
The beach was beautiful and spotless - we never felt crowded there either and didn't have to "reserve" chairs at the crack of dawn. The included buffet breakfast was a nice start to the day and had good variety. Eggs to order, waffles, something traditionally Jamaican every day, fruit, porridge (the cornmeal was our fave!) toast, coffee and juice. We LOVED the jerk made by Allen - truly delicious and he has such a fun personality. We also took advantage of the free paddle board clinic and I think I found a new sport! It was so much fun being out on the water like that. Tree House really has all the conveniences right there - money exchange at a good rate, watersports, tour desk, jerk shack, bar, restaurant, amazing beach, great staff - and an owner, Gail, that is totally hands on and engaged. She was celebrating her birthday when we were there and the Manager's Reception was a lot of fun. Rum punch, limeade, popcorn, small munchies, a live band and birthday cake.
I really have nothing but good things to say about our stay at Tree House - and in fact, have been talking to my husband about staying there again, this time on our annual December trip. The location is great - within a 5-10 minute walk to my favorite bar in the world (Sun Beach) - the staff is wonderful, the grounds and rooms well kept. We will be back!
