“The best customer service”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I had been to the Firefly cabins once before and loved it. As I was traveling this year a lost my purse on the first leg of my flight. Firefly was very nice giving me total credit for my trip to use in the future. I would never stay anywhere else!

This location is one in which my husband and I label a 'local secret' on the island of Jamaica. We decided to visit Negril for a weekend getaway and a friend recommended this cottage. I am definitely more an upscale hotel type girl but I also love the nuances of staying at cultural spots. This hotel had a great flavor of Jamaica with their room furniture and decor (dark mahogany wood), cleanliness, beautiful fruit and floral gardens boasting the local fruits in season and staff (from gardener to housekeeping and management) who were all so welcoming and very helpful. Our star of the year goes to Ms. Annmarie whose kindness, knowledge and generosity surpasses any I have seen in my 20+ years of traveling. And also to Maxine the bartender who wanted to show us a local secret of Jamaica and brewed right in front of us soursop and lime leaf tea (which she went personally to pick the leaves in the gardens for us). Truly a beautiful place where great memories were made and we can't wait to visit again next year!

I have stayed at Firefly 3 or 4 times now. It is hard to go anywhere else. The grounds are pretty, the beach is perfect for sun or shade and everyone is so friendly - staff and guests. I stay in the simpler rooms or cottages when I come because I don't require much, but there are a wide variety of rooms depending on your needs. It is my home away from home when I visit Negril!!

Once again Firefly has made my trip to Jamaica one to remember. First off the staff is most friendly, the place is clean, and I feel safe when I am away on an excursion as well as in the night. A very relaxed kind of beach where you can relax in a hammock, or let the ocean wash away your daily grind at home. I will return over the holidays and I know where I am staying.

When you really want to relax and chill out, be you etc.Firefly in Negril is the answer.

Super beach, great all day breakfast and really really cold Red Stripe beer. Staff are always on hand but only appear when you need them{ how do they do that?} Rooms are excellent, just had my third visit there, many more to come.

Room Tip: I favor a room over looking the beach, awesome sunrise and sunset!!

after almost 20 years of visiting jamaica for both business and pleasure, this was my first trip with a child (my 7 year old stepson) in tow. because of this, we decided to stay directly on the beach, which is something i've never done before. i weighed the options (alfred's didn't seem appropriate for a youngster, nirvana was too expensive) and decided firefly was the best bet. and i was right!

we booked the oceanview penthouse suite, which was an act of blind faith, since you can't get any idea of its layout based on the hotel's website description. it was decorated in slightly tattered 80s decor and was way smaller than i expected, but we made do- there was only one small double bed, so the kid slept between my husband and myself, which was not great but doable.

the kitchen was well-stocked with pots and pans, dishes and such and the refrigerator was much larger than a dorm-sized unit, which was great. water pressure was excellent and the temperature of the hot water was almost TOO hot. oh, and don't forget to bring your own beach towels. from what i saw, the majority of the hotel towels are on the small side, and they're really not suited for the beach, so you'd do best to bring your own.

the bedroom had a little 12" color tv that got a ton of cable channels. we switched between cartoon network and bollywood movies on zee tv. there are a few porn channels too, but there's a menu card that tells you how to block channels, if you don't want to randomly flash on naked people on your tv.

the balcony had a beautiful view of the beach and the bay and my only nitpick is that the furniture was really outdated and uncomfortable- it would have been really nice if they put in a little daybed to lounge on.

the grounds are beautiful, the beach area is well-maintained and shaded, the staff is extremely nice and the other guests were pleasant.

nudity was actually taking place next door at sun beach. ironically, there was a total of 6 kids staying at the hotel while we were there, not to mention local kids and kids from neighboring hotels who came to kick it with the firefly group. so anyone who's on the fence about booking due to the nudity issue really has nothing to worry about. i was worried that the one single 30-something guest from ottowa would be annoyed by all the romping the kids did, but he was really cool about it. my husband and i brought a portable speaker and cranked up old school dancehall and hip hop tunes and no one seemed to mind that, either. it felt like a nice, chilled out adult sleepaway camp with a bunch of kids thrown into the mix.

one other thing of note- there isn't a full restaurant on premises. they serve pancake and eggs grilled over a hot plate for breakfast and no lunch or dinner items. the whole snack/bar area shut down around 6pm each night. the snacks and cold cuts we brought with us came in handy, and if we had stayed for a week or longer we definitely would have made a trip to the hi-lo supermarket for some six packs of beer.

thanks, firefly, for making our family trip to jamaica nice and easy!

No it's not the Ritz Carleton but it is very nice. The rooms are clean and the people are great. You can't beat the location right in the middle of 7 mile beach.On the beach clothing is optional so you can really get comfortable the way Jamaica should be enjoyed. You can have breakfast right on the beach.The bar could be a little better. Imagine no Margaritas !! The folks who work there are VERY helpful if you need anything like reservations for dinner. So go with the right attitude and you will really enjoy this quaint spot on the beach.
