Just needed a quick getaway before the holidays, so me and my friend booked in advance (August) for a great price. Upon arriving at the hotel we were a bit disappointed that we were not on the beach side, however, we ended up enjoying the garden side more than we thought we would. Due to it being low season, we practically had the pool and jacuzzi to ourselves. We stayed in the Grapefruit room, which had the feel of a pool house and was less than 5 feet from the pool. The room was clean and had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. The only downside was that there was not a coffee maker in the room. We didn't have much interaction with the staff but when we did they were very friendly. RV is in a very convenient location, a little over 1 mile to the 'turn about' in the downtown area; pedicure $10, Jamaican patties, $1.50, gift shops and the grocery store. I found the prices in the grocery store and the shops much cheaper than Duty-Free at the airport.
But let me tell you that the best part of the trip started when our driver, Everton, picked us up at MoBay airport, which we arranged through the hotel in advance. He is a great resource and can give you a REAL Negril tour (876) 425-9158.
Both my friend and myself have travelled extensively throughout the caribbean, this was one of the best ones ever. Bypass the all-inclusive and enjoy the 'local flow.'
