“Sweet spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

We ended up staying at Moonlight for three nights last minute because of our reservation was messed up by the rental we set up before we arrived on the island (Betty/Chris’s condo @ Point Village – never again!). I must say it was a blessing in disguise because we were so much happier with our stay at Debbie’s place. Debbie welcomed us warmly and had her housekeeper get the room ready very last minute and we were able to check in before noon – what a lifesaver! Everything just worked so easily and smoothly – it set the rude start of our trip back to smooth sailing. The rooms are nice and spacious – much bigger than a regular hotel room. We were traveling with our daughter, and their rooms have a queen and single, which was perfect for our small family; also had couch and chair sitting area, cable tv, dishes, beach towels, a nice patio area – and of course the gorgeous view of the sea and the cliffs. I also loved the easy access to the ocean, the lawn/garden area, and the outdoor shower! My daughter fell in love with Debbie and her company, we definitely felt ‘at home’. The only cons were that the wifi was very skittish (was off most of our stay) and the dogs bark at night. But – bonus – Moonlight definitely has the best (hot!) water pressure of anywhere I’ve found in our MANY stays in Jamaica – delicious!

Moonlight Villa is situated on the cliffs of Negril. The property is very well protected by the guard dogs and other security measures. Debbie ~ the owner/operator is just an amazing woman, not only does she do a great job at running her villa she is also very involved in the community of Negril.

If you want to spend a little time relaxing and swimming right off the cliffs, Moonlight Villa IS the place to be!!

Oh what a strange trip we had! We both arrived sick with the flu and, following a natural lifestyle, needed some local help. Debbie quickly swung into action, hooking us up with the right people to cure what ailed us. Later in the week, there was a sprained ankle... again, Debbie to the rescue. Without her aid, we would have had a pretty miserable trip, as we only had a couple of days we were well.

The villa is well equipped with everything we needed. The service was fantastic, from the amazing maid service, to Omar and Kwako being available for help with anything else we needed. Looking for a good restaurant? Ask Debbie! Want to get set up for a great excursion? Ask Debbie! Want to go out for a night of entertainment and local connection? Ask Debbie!

Everything she suggested was amazing, and we will definitely go back! We felt supported, loved and respected! What could have been a disastrous trip, turned out to be full of many wonderful surprises! Thank you Debbie, for being the ultimate hostess!

Once you go, you know! We love staying at Moonlight villa. we go there yearly and feel like family when we are there. Debbie and the dogs are like an extension of our family. You will receive the warmest hospitality you won't get anywhere else. It's a clean, comfortable and cozy villa on the cliffs. So much better than the big box resorts where you never get to know people. Here you get to meet new people and have a chance to get to know them. We return yearly and have made some great friends that we see every year. It's our home away from home. Our family in negril!

Four girlfriends wanted a winter getaway and this was a great spot to check in to. Let me start off by staying that Moonlight came highly recommended to me by Canadian Blues Artist, Miss Robin Banks, who makes Jamaica her musical home all winter. Now, I see why because it was a truly great referral. We are normally all inclusive type of travelers but I really enjoyed the feel of this vacation. I would do this again.

Debbie Lightheart, our most gracious hostess, along with her beautiful puppies, made us feel welcome and safe right from the start. The villa is spacious, CLEAN and comfortable with spectacular views of the oean. Her staff are great people and our rooms had everything we needed for our 9 day stay, Loved the fridge and coffee maker. All the other guests were really nice people and welcomed us with recommendation and tips for our stay. Caesar Monday was a nice way to sit down with everyone and just talk. It was an overall great experience. We gathered nightly to watch the gorgeous sunsets. I loved the laid back and peaceful feeling.

Across the street there is the smallest little market that carries EVERYTHING. So convenient to run over there to grab some things for munching and drinking. Also, we had the pleasure of eating the chicken prepared by Tony who has a barbeque across the road. $5 for a huge plate of 1/4 chicken in pumpkin sauce with rice and veggies, comfort food for sure. Pee Wees next door made fantastic Spanish Omelettes. $5 again for a great breakfast.

The Cliffs at Negril are absolutely beautiful. The days are celebrated with a kind of feel that we overlook back home. It was totally relaxing and inspiring. It took me two days to SLOW down but after that it was pure enjoyment.

We joined Robin twice at her dinner shows at the Charela Inn, an upscale and most relaxed European run resort for great dinners and entertainment. Fantastic.

We took in a Reggae show featuring Yellowman that was totally unforgettable. So much talent in Jamaica. Fun, fun, fun.

We enjoyed the laid back feel of the beach and had a very good lunch at the Canoe Bar, nice spot with Free WiFi to catch up with loved ones at home. Lounged on 7 Mile Beach at Alfreds for the better part of the week. Nice spot with good food, clean bathrooms and showers.

Robin also took me on a 15 minute walk down to the Extabi Resort which is a lovely seaside hotel with a very good restaurant and cliffs and caves to die for. A very good lunch of snapper and then the luxury to go for a much needed dip in the hot sun. Devon proved he is a truly experienced diver.

Kevin Hughes (from our hometown) that runs Bourbon Beach on 7 Mile Beach, took us out on a day trip to the Pelican Bar that was quite memorable. It's a bar set on a coral reef and sandbar in the middle of the ocean. We ate some great seafood and stood in the water having cocktails and laughing all afternoon. A great day that I will not soon forget. He took us back to Bourbon Beach for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the specialty, Jerk Chicken. Awesome.

Overall, this trip was great and probably one of my better stays with my gal pals. I would love to return with close friends and family again.

Thank you to Deb, Robin and Devon, Racquel, Marlene, Gwato, June, Rick, Steve, Elisabeth, King Louie, Rebel, Zsa Zsa, Boompy, Easy and Precious. A wonderful stay and we will surely return. Irie!

I just returned from my second stay at Moonlight Villa and it was all that I remembered and more. Arriving there felt like returning to my home away from home. Debbie and the dogs were there to welcome us and instantly the relaxation began. I stayed in a different room then last year, and it was just as great. Large room with a queen bed, additional single bed and a sofa, mini fridge and freezer for ice. Lots of room to lay about and enjoy the breeze and view, and lots of room to welcome the dogs to hang out. Debbie once again arranged some great outings for all the guests, optional of course, but I highly recommend taking Debbie up on her suggestions as she never steers you wrong. The villa was full this stay and it was a great group to hang about and chat with, enjoy some drinks, but there is plenty of room if all you want to do is chill out alone. I was happy to see all of my Jamaican friends around the villa, Kwako, Marlene and Omar, who also take the time to tell you about the local way of life, hang out with, point you in the right direction and also make you feel like you are family. Marlene is a fantastic cook and I was lucky enough to enjoy a dinner she cooked for a group of us. I will be going back for sure, and next time staying two weeks.

I travelled to Jamaica with a friend, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Negril than Moonlight Villa. Amazing people - Debbie is the best host in the world, and her staff are super friendly. She gave us tons of good advice, and everything she recommended was great! The rooms are well equipped with 2 beds, lots of dishes, a mini fridge, etc. There is an amazing view from the veranda - get up early to sit on the wall and watch the fishing boats going by. We also loved the 6 VERY friendly dogs :)

If you're going to spend time in Negril, stay here. You won't regret it!
