More like an upscale backpackers hostle than resort, great budget place to stay in Negril.
The property was lush with different types of tropical trees and plants, was clean as was the room, which was on the "garden side." Negril is a bit out of the way, so there was not to much action going on as far as what a large city would have to offer. More laid back, relaxing, rather than a party atmosphere, etc... was interesting meeting the locals who could be a bit of a hassle at times, aggressively trying to sell you their trinkets.
There is a guy that comes around in a small glass bottom boat at the edge of the cliffs in the morning and for a small charge takes people up the coastline and stops at a few locatotions which provide wonderful snorkeling opportunities, so that is much recomended. Definately be at the cliffs around sunset, AMAZING!
Good little restaurant to the left and just a short walk up the street when you leave the front desk. If you want a bit more to do, definately take one of the day trips that can be accessed from the resort, such as the Appleton Rum Factory tour, YS falls, etc...renting a scooter would be recomended to to help extend yourself a bit further up the street to the very small center of town, and possibly (for the adventurous) to Montego Bay, but beware, the drivers are a bit on the "wild" side and drive on the left.
The resort has a sister hotel called "Legends" which has a shuttle every morning and then back at night. The beach there is amazingly beautiful, named "Seven Mile Beach." You can enjoy cocktails at the beach bar, jet ski, swim. It's a great to walk up a ways if you don't mind the occasional "hard sell" from the locals that are selling thier arts and crafts here too.
Wow, some even smoke "weed" right on the beach if you are so inclined.
All in all it was a nice resort, "no problems wit anyting mon"
