Relaxed and Private - Loved It!
Really nice staff who were unobtrusive and friendly. This place is a good hideout for relaxing, and is also very secure. You need a car though, as it is a little bit out of the way. Driving in Jamaica is easy, so don't be afraid of that prospect! Food was good, drinks were strong, pool was clean and refreshing, and the sunsets are WAY better than Rick's Café, not kidding. Go there and chill.

We decided to visit Jamaica at the last minute. We went with this hotel because they had a shuttle to their sister hotel at the beach which let us have both beach and cliff world. It worked out perfectly for us. There was snorkeling when the water was calm at the cliffs and the staff could not have been friendlier. the restaurant/food service was very personal and the chef was excellent. At the beach location we took advantage of hotel security and the staff's assistance in beach activities through the locals they knew and trusted. All in all I would return there without question. The guests we met were also neighborly and very helpful.

One-of-a-kind experience in Negril
Nice off the beaten path location. Little inconvenient to get back to town…yet that is a benefit . Watch dogs were barking ( noticed it more at first then only a little bit ) in the night. It gave a feeling of security as no one was going to get Past those dogs. And they were super friendly to guests , plus you wouldn't know they were there in less you look for them.

Relaxing and quiet
Our stay was amazing! Our room was right by the ocean so we were greeted with a breathtaking view of a Negril sunset when we arrived. The staff members were fantastic. They helped my bf surprise me with a birthday dinner oceanside and really went above and beyond to create that special moment for us. Rakesha and Jenora were some of the staff members who assisted us during our stay. The only thing that we didn't like was that many ants quickly appear in the kitchen for the smallest crumb, grain of rice or drop of juice on the counter. We suggest to be careful not to leave food on the counter unattended for any length of time and clean up any crumbs/spills immediately. We loved it there and hope to return someday.

CLOSED and couldn't stay here!
I arrived to check in and the gate was closed and locked. I rang the bell and honked my car horn and no one ever opened the door. I had to go rent another hotel room. HORRIBLE!
