My husband and I just came back from an amazing stay at the Westender Inn at the end of May.
The grounds were beautiful, our direct views of the ocean from the balcony were gorgeous and all of the staff were warm and friendly.
It provided the non- touristy relaxing vacation we were looking for.
The hotel is located at the West end of Negril which is excellent for peace and quiet and gorgeous sunsets. The ocean waves are very strong there, so we hung out in the pool on the rocks or went into town to go to seven mile beach. If you want to get into some of the action down by the beach or in town you will need to take the hotel shuttle about 10-15mins to get there. Because it was off season while we were there the staff was very accommodating to taking us into town whenever we wanted and picked us up when we were ready to go back to the hotel.
The food at the hotel restaurant Westie's was excellent! They provided a good assortment of authentic Jamaican dishes in addition to other popular food choices.
This place was truly a gem! I would definitely go back! Ask for an ocean front deluxe room for the best views. You will not be disappointed.
