Hi! I spent 9 wonderful nights at Grand Pineapple in March with my husband, 12yo daughter and my parents. We loved the location, staff, and beach! We had the best grilled lobster at Ivan’s on our anniversary! My husband and I walked from GP up to Beaches/CSA each morning. Wonderful vacation….So, we are planning to go back, just the two of us, for 2 weeks in Feb 2015. I really like the idea of eating locally and saving some money by having drinks and some meals in our room. I don’t really want to do all inclusive again. It seems to be a waste for us because we like a few drinks, but don’t eat or drink THAT much- I also like to try local places. I am looking for suggestions on places to stay. These things are important: shade on the beach, close to bars and restaurants, fridge and coffee pot in room, king size bed (we slept in a double at GP because our daughter was with us- really needed a bigger bed!!), safe place for a long morning walk, porch/patio attached to the room, ice machine available, quiet and peaceful…- I can’t think of anything else- it doesn’t need to be fancy, just safe, clean and comfortable. I have looked at Negril Tree House, Country Country, CoCoLaPalm, Charela Inn- I like the area between GP and Margaritaville for walking. I also don’t want a room on the other side of the road- must be beach side. Thank you so much for any suggestions or thoughts- this forum was really helpful in planning our PERFECT trip to Negril last month! Can't wait to return!
