We just got back from a 4 night stay at CocoLaPalm, Negril. Let me preface by saying I am 7 months pregnant and safety and comfort were my top priority. We arrived to our room (324) a Standard room on the first floor. Big mistake, I immediately burst into tears the room was tiiiiiiny, and there were people walking past our window (My priorities were not addressed) Thankfully, hubs went back to the front desk and explained the situation and asked what our options were. We ended up upgrading to a Junior Suite for $30 extra a night. Trust me, that I do not like 'wasting' money on a hotel room you are never really in, but this was totally worth it. We stayed in room 416 the first night, and then moved to 426 (ocean view) the rest of the vacation. The difference in rooms were so substantial. Okay-- We had dinner there twice, the food was great, and probably would have been happy eating there all four nights but we wanted to check out other restaurants. Lunch was pretty good, during our stay (for lunch) we had a jerk burger, tuna melt, pizza, and jerk chicken. The pizza was the best option. We also went across the street to Best In the West (jerk chicken) and yes, that was very good too. What else? The beach chairs, wow don't get me started on this... What I don't like about some hotels is when guests wake up super early and put their towels on beach chairs to 'claim' them and then go back to bed. Being 7 months pregnant, and not being able to be in the sun for too long I had difficulty finding a bed. The beach hagglers weren’t too bad, you just say "no" and they keep walking. The hotel and beach were well kept, and the staff was friendly. Really, there's not much else to say. We got what we were looking for which was a nice, small, quiet hotel, with a clean beach. There were a lot of repeat guests. If I was the type of person to stay in the same hotel over and over again, I would have no problem returning. I am still on the fence as to whether I prefer All-Inclusive vs. Regular hotel. There are pros and cons with each. I think going forward I would prefer All-Inclusive based soley on money reasons.
Activities: We visited Ricks- Where the locals will jump off 80 ft cliffs to the water, that was pretty cool. We only stayed for an hour which I think is all you need. We also, did a snorkeling trip one morning (only $55 total) for an hour and that was pretty fun too.
