“Smiles and fun at Catcha Falling Star!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We stayed at Catcha Falling Star Nov.16-18th and we were very impressed.We have spent the last 11 Thanksgiving trips in Negril and we love it but these people bring a smile to your face from the time you check in until your check out time and actually we were smiling even days later when we thought back about the fun we had.Great food,good drinks(not that we indulge,well maybe a little),really had fun here and we will be back for a longer stay next year!!!We stayed in Geminii2,a small cozy room that was all we neeeded,went across the street and got some basic supplies for the room and also walked the cliffs and had beers in a couple other places.Very safe place with awesome people,stop in and see them when you are in Negril,you will go back again!!

So much has changed since first discovering Catcha in the late 80's. Long gone are the days of spotty electricty and water! It has truly become a special place on earth. Each November we are welcomed with open arms by the entire staff and Ben, who we have known since he was a puppy. We were devasted the year that Hurricane Ivan kept us our cliffside home, forcing us to stay at the beach. But from the devasation came Ivan's Bar & Restaurant where you'll enjoy fabulous food and and specialty drinks (Kevin, we're missing your Dirty Pina Coladas!). We look forward to watching the beautiful sunsets each and every night, followed by a wonderful dinner at Catcha or elsewhere on the cliffs. The vibe is always friendly and relaxing, and even though there are many more rooms since we first started going, it never seems to feel "crowded". They've done a good job of setting up separate areas on the cliffs to enjoy a day of watching for dolphins to pass by. The beautiful pool has also been a wonderful addition to the property, especially on days when the water is rough. Catcha has all the elements of the perfect vacation spot. Many thanks to (and i'm sure i'm forgetting someone!) Andrea, Mauvette, Susan, Jane, Kevin, Ty (Congratulations on your wedding!), Barbara, Carol, Keneisha, Nicolette, Asanetta, Donna, Miss Nan (where were you!?), Jackie, Jason, the Security and Kitchen staff and of course Ben for another wonderful vacation at our home away from home! Ordia, we missed you!

I love this place.... From the amazing staff, to the fabulous food, to the rustic but extremely clean rooms, I am officially hooked. Once you go you know. Now if you are looking for Ritz Carlton, please do not go. This place is laid back, chill, fun and everything I could ever want in a botique property. Big ups to Kevin, Ty , Keneisha, Mauvette, Andrea, Susan, Jackie, Sanjay, Garfield and the entire kitchen, Barbara, Tanisha, Vivi, and everyone else there who works hard to make certain that you have nothing but a great vacation.

Catcha continues to improve. Even with the drought this year the foilage was abundant after the devastation wreaked by Ivan. And the views from the many private areas in the cliff side are just awesome. The accomodations all seem to have a personal touch that make them feel like home. The restaurant and bar have good prices and nice portions of great food. The jerk chicken penne pasta is still my favorite for supper but I think my new favorite for breakfast is the stuffed potatoe... And the staff - all of them are great and very personable, almost like family. We'll be going back!

The staff is very nice, our room was brand new and quite beautiful, and the restaurant/bar was great but I just couldn't get past the state of the lounge areas all around the cliffs and pool. It was run down and I wouldn't even think of resting on any of the loungers. I actually set my towel on the cliff edge and rested there. Some of the cushions looked like they havn't been tended to in years although the house keeping for rooms was excellent. It was weird. Some things seem very nice and new. It was dissappointing because it looked like some areas were really nice at one time but just not kept up. Makes me wonder what the new stuff will look like in a few years. The worst area in particular was a few loungers that had green and white discolored cushions on them and there is this bed set into the cliffs that I would have loved to use if only it didn't look so very used. Also the ladders in and out of the water are all rusted except one. Regardless of this we still enjoyed being there.it's very difficult not to enjoy being on the cliffs..it's very laidback and the staff makes you feel at home.

Thank you so much for your positive reviews on Ivan's Restaurant. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the staff.We do apologize for the waterside as we had damage from Hurricane Sandy which we are currently working on at the moment. we also have new sun lounges and new covers for that area.

We just returned from our 5th visit to Catcha. My husband and I were married on the property 3 years ago. We go back every year on or near our anniversary. We cannot stay away from the enchanting property and our family (the staff). We have many choices of accomodations between 7 mile beach and the West End, but we would not stay anywhere else. After looking at 13 resorts for our wedding, we can say for absolute certainty, there is NO place like home (Catcha).

Room Tip: Libra and Sagi are our favorites!

Heaven on earth. The people, the location, the food, the privacy, the easy acsess to the beach or the south coast, the magical ambiance that is Jamaica, are all captured at catcha. Perfect weather in oct, sitting on the cliffs looking across the carribean knowing your right where your supposed to be!
