It's one of those places that lures you into coming back. That's what I did anyway, I came back from Kingston after spending a weekend there. The reasons? Well I could start with Sue, the owner, a lovely and full of life character, Martel the rasta guard and cook, the lush gardens and the hammocks (great place to sleep) and the nice chill vibe that surrounds the place. I'm only sorry I didn't discover this place sooner during my stay in Jamaica. One Love.

Seriously, Judy's House is amazing! I planned on spending one night but ended up staying 3 nights. I stayed in the dorm room (no bunk beds - :) ), clean and with mosquito net. The cottages, dorm and singles is surrounded with nature. There's a sun desk, hang out area and hammock area, what more can you ask for?

Location is good, not walking distance (well you can walk if you are up to it) to the beach but cheap taxi (300Jamaican dollars/USD$3). It is away from the noise :)

The host (Sue) is great and full of information.....You should consider staying at Judy's House on your visit to Negril.

A comfortable, charming and homely stay, in a very amazing location. Sue is a really great host and your staff is very helpful. If the two days we spent in Negril were wonderful, this is mainly due to the preciousness that is Judy House Cottages. Strongly recommend it to everyone.

Judy's House is perfect accommodation whether you are looking to just relax in a hammock and enjoys the sounds from the tropical surroundings or meeting people and partying!
The cottages are clean, well-kept with mosquito-nets and fans. The area is full of little hidden patios, hammocks and sitting areas, which adds to the charm of the hostel and the common areas are great for meeting other travelers. Sue is great! She brings people together and can give you good recommendations for things to do in the area.
I would recommend Judy's House to anyone traveling to Negril whether backpacking or romantic get-away!

We didn't actually stay here but we met the owner on our way from MoBay airport to Negril as we shared the same transport. All we can say is we are glad we did - Sue was integral in our having an amazing holiday with memories we will never forget. On the way to Negril, Sue was a wealth of information on what to do, see, etc. She is very knowledgeable of the local community and history and you will not find her boring I promise you! Sue can also arrange for day trips and excursions with her for very reasonable prices. We had a great time being driven by her through the very pretty countryside, reggae music playing, and the attractions she took us to.

If her cottages and services are anything like we experienced, I'm sure we would have a great time staying there too. Next time we're going to stay at the Judy House!

We were a family of 4 (kids 11 and 17).

We stayed with Sue for around 1 week (originally we only planned it for 3 nights but liked it so much) & really enjoyed it:)!!! We had a cottage in her tropical & beautiful garden and it's located in a Jamaican neighbourhood. You can easily walk & take Route taxis for getting around... The place was clean & also well equipped for self-catering. We can highly recommend it for people who like to travel more individual & would like to see more & get a better feeling of/for Jamaica... By the way we are going back there since Negril was our favorite place;)... Thanks again & see you soon:)

Yes, Yes, Yes! This place is a truly wonderful, exotic, & tropical haven on a beautiful island. I spent a total of 17 days at Judy House. Not only is Sue a very great host; her staff is also very helpful. Literally everything you need is either at your fingertips or is at a short walking distance away. Which reminds me of the beach ocean view is less than 1/2 km from the hostel...
It included very cozy rooms that was very clean thanks to a great housekeeper in Ms. "H". She always made sure that not only the rooms; but the entire premises was well maintained daily. Also, during my stay, I met sooooo many great people. either they were backpackers, honeymooners, global nomads or just single guest on vacation. We would have lunch or dinner together chatting outside most days on the outside gazebo. I truly recommend!! A must stay!!!

Room Tip: Well, I had a single room.. And it was rest.. So thats my room advice to you. And there were friends...

The Judy House Cottages property began life in December 2008 and finished construction in 2012. At the front of property 2 pretty, cosy, private, self-catering cottages are surrounded by the most beautiful tropical garden, with flowers, fruits & vegetables in abundance. The cosy, wooden cottages have verandas, private patios, hammocks, safes, cable TV, wifi, kitchen equipment and everything you should need to make your cottage your home whilst in Jamaica! Property is kept in pristine condition, including the communal patio, dip pool, bar-b-que, sun deck, rock garden, outdoor baths & shower.

A small, well stocked 'Honesty' bar/shop is provided for guests 24/7's to enjoy drinks & snacks for when you just want to hang out on property which has lots spaces designed for just that. Set in a real local, friendly community giving you the chance to experience the real Jamaica, with shops & bar close by and Mary's Bay Beach on the One Love Drive right at the end of my road. Quiet, with a real country feel, but with all the beach, restaurants, bars and other tourist facilities just a walk away. Sue can also organize airport shuttles, tours, scooter rentals and is a very valuable tourist information resource herself too! ... more   less
