Non all inclusive

My wife and I are interested in staying at a non all- inclusive in Negril for our 10 year anniversary in late October.. we've been to Jamaica many times but never a non all-inclusive. She likes Tensing pen and Catch a falling star. It dont much matter to me, as long as they have cold Red Stripe. Any input on these resorts or any other you would recommend would be great. Also any tips on finding great airfare deals would be helpful as well.

Thanks

Both are excellent. You'll have a great time at either. There are tons of past posts in this forum describing both places. (Just do a couple of searches.) Onestopva.com is a good site to check out photos, amenities, and prices for a few dozen reputable places - including those 2.

Agree both would be good choices. Tensing Pen would be a more private (less rooms for the property size). We love the cliffs, but if you are going long enough a split with beach can be fun too..kind of like two vacations in one! Check out the website recommended above Idle A While, Country Country, CoCo La Palm or Charela are popular choices.

Enjoy!

Cliffs can be very romantic or sexy and both of your options are perfect. If you look at the beach Idle Awhile has no competitors. You can book with them and split your time at Chill Awhile which is the sister property in the cliffs. Best of both worlds.

Congratulations on your anniversary.

Peace

Thought it is Hide A While in the cliffs?

Suggest Tensing Pen a better option based on location.

Hide Awhile is the West End resort, Chill Awhile is the beach restaurant.

Coco la Palm....been there 4 times and returning in 3 weeks...would not think to stay anywhere else...best beach front, clean, 2 pools, nice rooms, beautiful grounds, security on beach, and a wonderful staff...not to mention the central location on the beach....but no matter where you stay, Negril is beautiful, so enjoy!!!
