My husband and I had the fortune of being invited to a wedding hosted at VSM. We are so glad we got to experience Negril this way. From check in (there's NOTHING like a hug from Kimi) to the check out (tears and more hugs from all the staff), we were treated like honored guests.
For our first three nights, we shared cabin 5 with another couple. We had the upstairs bedroom, and with all windows open, we didn't even need to turn the air on. The breeze was amazing, and the bed was very comfy. (I would say I slept well, but the stupid goat next door seemed to have other ideas for me.) I loved the coffee, the fresh fruit, and the friendly staff that not only hung up my hastily discarded clothes (who has time for folding when there is a hot tub waiting?!) and also kept our room looking in tip top shape.
While on the garden side, we had the opportunity to enjoy the bar (pina coladas from Cliffie are the VERY best), enjoy some late-night hot tubbing in the massive hot tub, and basically just really get onto island time. (Trust me, it's much better than my city time to which I'm accustomed!) The staff was marvelous, taking the time to get to know our names and always quick with a friendly smile.
We moved across the street to the seaside villa for our last few days. Honestly, if you can get six couples together for a trip, you would do yourself a disservice not to stay in this gorgeous house. The six bedrooms each have their own bathroom (plenty of privacy) and have an amazing kitchen/living area for its guests. The pool (with basketball hoop) and hot tub were a great hit for our group too.
My dear friend's wedding day was magical. The staff at VSM worked seamlessly with the wedding coordinator to make her day wonderful down to the hasty umbrella disbursement in the middle of the ceremony.
-You do have ocean access from the garden side, but you have to take the stone steps under the road.
-Take care when entering the ocean, there are lots of sea urchins around the ladder.
-Make sure you give the bartender your room number for ease of ordering drinks. He doesn't accept cash, but you can bill to your cabin and pay upon check out.
-There is no beach access at this resort, but they do have reciprocity with another resort for use of their beach.
Enjoy! We had the time of our lives here.
