Me and my two girlfriends decided we wanted to visit Jamaica this year because our birthdays fall in the summer. We are all 20something. I checked all the all-inclusive resorts around Negril (that's the part of JA that attracted me the most) the resorts were all expensive and we didn't want to be trapped on the resort. I'd been googling different night clubs for months and I wanted to visit them! During my search I visited ONE STOP NEGRIL and they had all the beach and cliff resorts listed w/rates and pics. Merrill's was the same rate as a lot of other resorts and they had all inclusive meals and drinks. So we booked it. One Stop staff was incredible, they really made it work for us. (There was a tiny issue about a voucher though. One stop didn't give me any voucher to print out. I didn't know what they were talking about. We had to let the resort take a photo copy of our passports. Issue resolved.) I even arranged for the shuttle to pick us up from Montego bay airport thru One Stop. Winston came and got us and took us on the shortest hour and 15min ride i've ever been on! Very Scenic and Beautiful. We arrived at Hotel, it was very beautiful with all the plants and sand (at nite it's dreamy) the rooms are old fashioned and... whatever. Their was a baby lizard in my room! We called the staff and they came to save us but the tiny lizard disappeared. I found him the next morning in the bathroom and put him in a cup with a top and set him free. I never do things like that, Jamaica had me open! I digress. We were in the middle of everything!!! Excellent location! We walked to the clubs... we kind of walked everywhere except the Cambio to exchange our money. We were afraid at first walking around at night to these clubs. Its very very foreign, like a movie. But security said it was safe and it really was. People were everywhere walking to the club too! We had to be careful and aware... you can't be all loose flashing money, pissy drunk getting in cars and nonsense like that! Same safety precautions you would take at home apply here. I could always see the potential danger but use your good judgement and have fun. The people are beautiful. They treat us with respect and love. Everyting crisp like a biscuit! The food was phenomenal!!!!! OMG!!!! DELICIOUS!!! We got down... like seconds. Drinks had us covered! Awesome bartenders John and Atall. They finished us in a ver nice way. We had our drinks on the sand, in the water... everywhere. Food rocked. Mmmmm. I rode jet skis, visited roaring river. Wow spiritual experience. Got a baptism. It was just the best. Visit Merrill's one.
PS the resort is occupied by europeans, their very nice but they refuse to tip the hardworking staff. Very... uppity (sorry) but I'm American I'm used to all that. At the end of the day we all partied and had fun, Europeans and tourist from other resorts enjoy the night life too!!! We were surprised to see lil Becky in some of these spots. It just made us feel safe. Check out my pics. Please go... Irie!!!!!!!
