The staff treated my family so great that I was truly delighted. They especially treated my 5 year old son like a little prince...spoiled him rotten! He enjoyed his 5th birthday and I enjoyed my 30th. They went out of their way to make us food that was not in the buffet, or bring us food to take back to the room when the buffet line closed at 9 pm. It was always with a "no problem mon" attitude too. After experiencing the nasty attitudes at the airport, getting to Merril's and being surrounded by friends was a breath of fresh air. Oh, and did I mention the beach is GORGEOUS??? I've been to Negril lots of times and stayed in various hotels, and I can say the staff at Merril's has been the best yet. Hello to Rasheeda, Shannon, Andrew, Jermain (the best bartender in Negril), Christopher, Miss Viola, Donnette, Marlon, Danielle, and the list goes on.
The only thing a little offputting at times is the pushy beach vendors. Most will just go away after a polite "no thank you" but some will stay there and continue to annoy you. An assertive "no" will do the trick. Plus, there is always a Merril's guard who sits on the beach to watch your back and sort of fend off the aggressive vendors.
This is the least expensive all inclusive resort you will find in Negril and it is waaaay nicer than Merril's 1. We had to move our room from Merril's 1 the second day because it was so small and the bathrooms were tiny. Merril's II has larger rooms, with a full bath, and they look much better kept.
There are tons of popular beach bars within a stone's throw of Merril's II so if you get tired of the buffet food, there are many restaurant choices about.
I can't wait to go back!!!
