“Lovely holiday”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Spent 11 nights at Merrills Beach Resort 11 and must say l had a lovely time. My cousin came down from the parish of St. Mary's and spent a few days with me at the hotel. He also said he was very pleased with the service that Merrills Beach Resort 11 provided. The Food and accommodation was very good. A nice variety of food was served daily. Lots of alcohol at the bar which was good. Waitress service was good. It was also nice that i had the choice of dining at Merills 1 and 3 as well.

I spoke to the manager called Michael and his wife and they made me feel very welcome indeed.

l Would definitely stay at Merrills 11 again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the South side are quieter

We were at Merrills 2 from 2/5-2/12/14. First time in Jamaica and opted for a smaller resort but still an All Inclusive. This was an anniversary trip- like John & Mary who we met at the resort and so at check in- asked about upgrading to an ocean front room- but they were occupied- hello New Yorkers- Brian & Aimee but was surpised one night with a bottle of wine/ fresh fruit and a warm tub filled with rose petals after dinner. Staff was very friendly and would go out of your way for what ever you needed & very nice getting to know all of them. The grounds are very beautiful and loved the two story villa style set up. The bar at Merrills 3 was the hang out for most of the trip and met some very interesting people- Ozzie, Tom, John & Mary, the New Yorkers. Beautiful sandy , calm beach, and you could walk for hours on the 7 mile strip. Food was fair- to good- with some fun entertaining night shows. All in all- I would highly recommend this resort if you like a more relaxed casual place to stay. Best regards- AD & Mary / Minnesota

We stayed 2-12 Feb 2014. I had read a number of reviews prior to arriving both pro & con.
Our opinion after 11 days - the good reviews were warranted, most of the negative ones
were from people who either don't read the site of where they're booking or wouldn't be happy
anywhere unless it was like home but with a tropical touch.

Our room was fine, the food was as expected - local, fresh and well prepared. The bar service
was exactly as promised - local beverages from 10-10. The ability to go from 1-2-3 was a plus.
M1's bar on the sand was great, as was M2&3 for a quiet evening drink. Everything was exactly
as promised at a midrange inclusive. One thing was exceptional!! The staff from checkin to out
were wonderful - I regret not being able to name everyone so to be fair --- I'll say EVERYONE!

Looking forward to a return trip - for the record - we were there for our 25th Anniversary and
were married in Negril and have been in JA every year. We've stayed 1-5 star so we are not
raving over a trip that we can't compare to others - Merril's was all and more that we hoped.

Merrils has a lot of potential, but right now, its not the place to spend the typical honeymoon, anniversary or special occasion, unless you plan to stay indoors for the most part. A BEAUTIFUL property, but limited if any choice of food and liquor (try one meat and two types or so of liquor per property). The good news is that you can property-hop so if like me, you don't eat fried chicken and Merrils 11 prepared that for lunch, Merrils 1 might have curried chicken or goat. The pool is really just not a pool and more of a large cold-tub (opposite of hot tub). The rooms and staff are exquisite. With the right management and correction of the average mentality, the property should do well. Merrils 111 was closed at my time of visiting.
