where to stay?

my friend and i, both in our mid-40's and female, plan to go to jamaica without our husbands.

as neither of us have ever been there, are there any suggestions on where to stay? we'd like to go to bob marley's birthplace, so is it necessary to stay close to there?

Take a look at the Runaway Bay or Ochos Rios areas. These two spots are a bit closer to 9 mile than Negril or Mo Bay. Breezes Runaway Bay gets very good comments on here.

Negril is a great spot for first time visitors but is a long ride to Bob Marley's 9 mile.

I completely agree with Jamerican. Nine Mile is not too far from Ochi/Runaway Bay, but it's several hours drive from Negril.

Resorts I would suggest you and your friend consider:

upscale all inclusive

1-Breezes Runaway Bay

2-Grand Lido Braco

3-Royal Plantation

mid range all inclusive

1-Sunset Jamaica Grand

2-Club Ambiance

3-Shaw Park Beach

4-Royal Decameron CC

non all inclusive

1-A villa in Runaway Bay(eg.Carousel)

2-Jamaica Inn

3-Rooms on the Beach

Blessings and respect to you, Enjoy no matter where you stay!
