Idle Awhile was amazing from start to finish! We absolutely loved our room and the entire resort! (The restaurant was a little pricey though) but service was great and everyone was so friendly!! I’ll definitely recommend it to anyone/everyone!

Nice, not perfect
Second time at this property. First time was excellent, with the most warm, caring, attentive staff. This time some (certainly not all) of the staff seemed a little less friendly and helpful. Not rude, just indifferent. Property is located in a wonderful spot, is nicely cared for but not perfect. Room was clean and well cared for. Wifi and phone systems were wiped out by a lightning strike while we were there (obviously not their fault) which made flight confirmation difficult. Based on previous stay we had high expectations that just weren't quite met. Its still a wonderful property that could use a bit of attention to the small details that really get noticed.

Private retreat in the middle of the beach strip
Very clean, welcoming staff, very well maintained rooms and grounds, and a fantastic snapper salad!!! right in the middle of everything, yet quiet and private. I have stayed at their resort on the West End side of Negril also, loved that and thought that being on the beach would be a step down, but I was wrong - both properties are amazing. Staff regularly transfer between properties, and one of the bartenders welcomed me 'back', despite it being a different location - that's customer service! Highly recommended.

The staff saw to our every needs. We felt safe and secluded on the beach late at nights. And lots of fun activities on the beach during the day. The drinks and food were awesome

Nice boutique hotel
Very nice boutique hotel located on the 7 mile beach in Negril. We booked two rooms and one wasn't ready until almost 5pm and check in is at 3pm. They offered complimentary beverages and a water bottle which was an added perk. The restaurant food was good and prices reasonable. The room wasn't the cleanest, more of a surface clean a lot of dust and Cobb webs. I would recommend this hotel.

Amazing relaxing hideaway
Amazing boutique hotel with direct access to beach. Very relaxed atmosphere, the staff is very welcoming and great wifi. Location is great to the point you can walk along the beach (or road) to other restaurants. If theres one negative, it's that the entrance is close to the road. So at times if you were in your room and a car or motorcycle with a loud muffler passed by, you would hear it. Aside from that, its peaceful and quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
