We were prepared for this so called " All-inclusive" Resort. We could see that it was going through a change. We originally chose this place for the location on Seven mile beach. Very pleased with the location and the safe feeling we had to walk all over the area of Negril, night and day. We were prepared to dine off the resort if needed. We did dine often off the resort, many affordable and excellent restaurants with lots of character. At the resort you will not go hungry, but very hit and miss, ex-specially if you are used to big resorts. Room was very nice and extremely well cleaned every day, staff are excellent and very friendly. Resort is next door to Margaritaville, lots of fun. We spent much of our time enjoying the Seven Mile Beach, walking all over. Having drinks at different location up and down the beach. Would I return to this resort? No, I now know that there are many other small resorts all over Negril area with proper dining arrangement. I would go to thees other small resorts as Non-Inclusive, and dine were I feel to. This area of Jamaica is very enjoyable and so enjoyed the free spirited of the area residents.
We were approached all the time by venders of all sorts of items, simply said no thanks . But enjoyed to talk with them, very friendly. On the roads, walking, taxis came often to ask if we wanted a ride. Taxis are very affordable. Felt very safe on this vacation and felt free to explore all over the area, no reason to feel intimidated. For this reason we will defiantly return to Negril,Jamaica.
We have been to Jamaica before and new that Saturday arrivals at the airport are very busy. Forgot this when we booked this time. Our flight was delayed 3 hours in Canada, we were not the only ones delayed. As a result of all the delays coming to Jamaica, the airport there was overwhelmed. Three hours from the airplane to customs. Normally it only takes minutes. After that the ride to Negril was uneventful. Coming home airport was very fast.
Older hotel small number of room(46), nice, we enjoy this older classic hotels.
Restaurants and Bars:
Restaurant was closed down and what they served for meals was very minimal, no fruit,very much the same. Bar was sufficient, open till 10 PM.
Beach very nice, pool clean, Grounds well keep.
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
No activities on Resort. Off Resort all sorts of things happening. Usually a band playing at one or more Hotel or Restaurant nearby to take part in every night.
This was a different vacation for us. We really enjoyed the ease to move around the area of Negril with no hastle. Will return and explore more dining areas and cafe.
