My husband and I went here for our first anniversary. We thought it would be a nice quick getaway. let me tell you...spend the extra money and go somewhere else. it was an hour and a half drive to get to the hotel. It was a pretty drive, but I almost threw up in our taxi's car because the roads are in pretty bad shape. We finally got to the hotel and it seemed cute. It was primative but I was up for it. We went to the room to drop our stuff off and when I sat on the bed it was like sitting on the sidewalk! It was hard as could be! We were afraid to sit on the wicker furniture because we thought it would break. The shower was moldy and had rust in it. The tiles around the shower were broken and the grout was very gross. There was no liner, just a shower curtain. They do not provide soap or shampoo, but there is a store a short walk away. Get bug spray while you are there!!!! The floor in the room is tile, and continues to the patio with a large gap under the door, so there were bugs in the room constantly. We bought one of those bug coils and kept it burning outside our door at all times to try and keep them out. Also, several of the windows had screens and shutters, but no actual glass in them so not only can you hear everything outside, but everyone can hear you inside! The food was not very good and the service was even worse. Once we discovered Rockhouse down the road we kept going there for food. The views were pretty, but the stairs getting in the water were very slippery and it is hard to get in and out of the water with waves throwing you into large rocks. Also, you had to constantly swim because there is no way to touch the bottom. We ended up in the pool after our 1 excursion to the water. That was quite dissapointing. Once we got over the fact that it was what it was, we did have a good time, but I will never go back here. The island itself was pretty, but Negril was a long haul and we did not think it was worth it. BTW- if you go to Ricks, there exchange rate is way off, so pay in Jamaican money! It will save you money.
