My wife and I took our first trip to JA last April and stayed at the RTB. We loved it. We didn't feel the need to leave the resort often, we stayed on the beach ALL day, but did go out to dinner a few nights (rock house, margaritaville, ricks) and ventured out to local jerk shacks a for a few lunches.
After reading many posts from Negril veterans it becomes clear that you don't endorse the big RIU resorts because of their environmental of local economy issues. We are looking to book a trip to return this April and I would like advice as to what AI resorts Negril veterans recommend. RIU Negril is most attractive to us finacially, but we are willing to spend more money, if we know it is going to a greater cause. Thank you for your time and advice.
