We divided our terrific stay at Citronella between the conch house and cove house, and also had the opportunity to a few others. Some details that may be beneficial to those considering a visit:

Sleep- The Conch House is a duplex and you can rent one or both sides. Each side has two double beds (one in the loft), a private bathroom and a small fridge. A door that can be locked from either side connects the two rooms.
The Cove house is a spacious two story cottage with a very open floor plan. There are two bedrooms upstairs and one down, with an additional twin bed in the hallway upstairs. One and half baths and a full kitchen (with full size fridge). The upper front bedroom has a veranda that affords unsurpassed views of the Caribbean!
The round house is on the lighthouse side of the property, has a nice secluded yard, full size fridge, stove (with oven), wrap around veranda and outdoor shower. The A-Frame is on the Rick’s side of the property, is similar in size to round house, with small fridge, porch and upper outside deck in the rear.

Eat and Drink –Citronella does not serve food on site (save continental breakfast during high season) but we had no trouble filling our tummies with yummies! One of the best restaurants on the cliffs, LTU, is right next door. They offer great views, a diverse menu and reasonable prices. Seastar Inn will provide shuttle service for you. Their food is terrific and service second to none. Don’t miss the Saturday night buffet! Within a relatively short walking distance (10 minutes) or quick taxi ride, try Hungry Lion (seafood and vegetarian cuisine) and/or Serious Chicken (a self-described “beer and chicken joint”). Neither will disappoint.

Swim – Nothing beats the beautiful clear coves at Citronella, but you may run into days when the water is either too rough to enter or has more jellyfish than you care to swim with. In these situations, I would again recommend another call to Seastar Inn. Hang out in their swim up pool bar or try your hand at billiards. Of course Rick’s is right next door. A dip in the pool is nice during afternoon … when it isn’t crowded and they have drink specials.

Summary - The staff really makes you feel like you are spending some time with their Jamaican family … Hats off to Trevor and Jennifer!! As other reviewers have stated, the natural tendency is to keep this little gem a secret. But, even when fully occupied, the area is so spacious that you often feel like you have the entire place to yourself. One fair note of caution: As much as we loved it, this resort is not for everyone. If discovering an occasional crab in the bathroom or gecko on the ceiling will disturb you may want to look elsewhere. Do not come here expecting amenities like cable TV, A/C and hot tubs. For the rest of us, Citronella is a cool spot with the true Jamaican vibe … clean rustic cottages sitting on beautifully landscaped property with wonderful swimming coves. IRIE!
