merrils 2 on 7 ml.beach is hard to beat.my husband and i, and my sister and her husband, have been all over the island and this resort i highly recommend.first of all 7ml.beach has the whitest sand and clearest water in our opinon, than anywhere else in jamaica.when you walk out into the ocean from merrils 2 its so neat because you dont need any kind of water shoes because its totally free of the black sea urchants that weve had to watch out for so much in other parts of jamaica. this is the only place that i would say you can do that at which we enjoyed the most.
the rooms are awesome but get the ones at merrils 2 cause they have the biggest balcony ones.you can fit 4 or more on it easy,which we like cause we travel with 2 others.also if you walk out the side door from the office that your faceing the rooms at,get the rooms to the right cause on balcony you get a great ocean view.there numbered in 800s.but if you want less noise stay in ones to the left. the rooms on the right are right in front of a kareoki bar called the drifters bar.but went there and loved it.i enjoyed getting ready in my room hearing diffrent music with people singing good,very few sang crappy lol.
weve been to lots of resorts some real fancy some not, but im here to tell you this had the friendlest bartenders and waiters,the hottest water all day long in the shower and the coldest air in the rooms weve ever exspearienced
the place is super clean and if you leave a small tip for the maids they will put extra towels and flowers in your room and they are sooo friendly.oh before i forget you do need to bring a wash rag because there seems to be a shortage on those. but there are towels in your room and free at office to pick up for the beach.the security is the best ive seen on 7ml.cause they make sure that the beggars arent bothering you.the security guard delroy was awesome.
the food was delicios and for breakfast you can have omelets made fresh how ever you want them.always fresh fruit and salads lots to choose from.one day we had lunch set up right out on the beach with tables chairs and table cloths and linen napkins it was awesome our table was right under a tree. they had a big blue kyak set up with all kinds of salads and pastas in it and also a huge dessert table it was beautiful. they also played more reggie music that i havent herd anywhere else during the day on a nice sterio..they had great entertainment 2 nts.a week also.one nt.they had a guy who could not only dance and swallow fire but could balance anything on his nose even a whole lounge chair from the beach.
out on the beach to your right youll run into tony who we loved to death that sells things there.also a girl named barbara and she does great massages and rubs you down with a real aloe plant for only 20.00 well worth it.after we spent money on the massages and buying soveneirs they never tryed to bug us on buying anything else the rest of the week but theyed see us on beach and say hello and give us hugs.super friendly.
the location of merrils is perfect,dont be afraid to walk out on street or youll miss real jerk chicken being cooked in half barrel bbqers.and a big mall with cheap prices.and a small store super cheap on iice and beer and sodas and snacks all minutes away also walk down to the bourban beach bar down the road on the right,they have live musicat nt. under the stars right on the beach.
theres always cabs by the office all friendly that will take you to lighthouse and ricks cafe which is maybe 15 min away so they dont charge much.
theres one thing everyone should know though,we went to merrils2 in may which is a slow time may-oct. but we payed for merrils thinking wed get to eat and have all the ameniteas at merrils 1 and 3.but they closed merrils 1 cause only 2 guests were staying there and moved them to merrils 3.but they had to walk over to ours merrils 2 to eat cause they closed resterant there since they had very little guest there.so if you go in slow time stay at 2 or youll get bumped around.we still had awesome time wthout 1& 3. i could go on and on about this place we had so much fun that were going back to merrils in oct for my husbands b-day.see ya there..
