“great relaxing trip”
Reviewed 6 April 2011

we spent 7 days at the cocolapalm and were very satisfied with the resort as well as
there food and service. the best part is the beach and the water. if you like to walk the beach this is the best.lots of shops and resturants along the 7 miles of white sand beach. the vendors are for the most part very friendly.we bought fruit,coffee and many
different items from them.all and all it was a great vacation and a very nice resort you wont be disappointed.

After much time reading reviews on resorts in Negril, my husband and I booked with CCLP. Location, price and swimming pools were the reason we went with CCLP. The room was satisfactory(no bugs, OK bed, good AC and plenty of hot water and pressure) and Carol did a nice job cleaning everyday. The availability of towels, chairs and tables at the beach was good. Neil and Andrew were professional at keeping the resort safe and the vendors at bay and Michele was good at quenching our thirst from behind the bar. Kedora and Diane made sure we got good service at breakfast-never waited long at all. The front desk was charming and helpful from check in to check out. We found the massages given at CCLP were among the best we've ever received!
The blend of sun and shade on the beach is unique to CCLP and the location is the best on the 7 mile beach. It's tough when the hardest decision you have to make all day is which direction you are going to walk and and which beach bar gets your $. Aside from the quality of CCLP, Niah's patties is a must at lunch(5 minute walk south), fruit from Rose(5minute walk north), dinner at Kuyaba(the best we had) and Mike's Glass Bottom boat was professional and friendly(1 trip snorkeling and 1 trip to view the Cliffs).
Never did we feel unsafe in Negril, common sense is all you need. We found the vendors fun to deal with and a relationship is established after passing each other for a few days. We would stop and talk with them and the connection made goes a long way. Most remember you and they will say hi and not bug you. Others need a polite "no,I'm good mon". Respect.
If we are ever blessed with another trip to Jamaica, we would not hesitate to go to Negril. In Negril we would not hesitate to book with CCLP.

My husband and I booked Coco LaPalm after staying at another hotel at Xmas and thinking it was a rip-off. We absolutely LOVED Coco LaPalm. It has two pools, one for adults and one for kids, but we used both and enjoyed peaceful afternoons floating on air mattresses and staring at the blue skies and palm trees. The beach is spectacular and you never have to worry about getting a beach chair. The hot tub is amazing, also and HUGE, nicely nestled amongst the palm trees.

The restaurant is fine, with a nice happy hour from 5-7 from Tues. - Sun. Monday night they do a great cocktail party with hors-d'oeuvres and drinks, free, from 6-7, plus entertainment. The staff is friendly and attentive. Our maid was excellent and punctual.

I can't say enough about how relaxing and enjoyable we found our stay here. I would definitely go back. Negril has one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Thank you, Jamaica.

This year was our fist stay at CoCo LaPalm and our second trip to Negril. Last year we stayed at Rooms on the Beach which though nice, felt very generic. We wanted a place that was comfortable, where the other guests and the staff would be fun. CoCo was the perfect place for us. The week we were there the hotel was full and we were assigned one of the less desirable superior rooms #311 that someone else slammed in a previous review. We couldn't move but it ended up being ok. Only complaint is that there isn't much of a patio there. The road noise isn't loud - no worse than any other hotel. Next year I would like to stay in a 2nd floor room. The hot tub was fun at night. Breakfast service was only slow for us 1 day - rest of the time it was great! Beach bar has good food for lunch. For dinner there are better options available. Perfect Beach and pools. And, evening activities in the bar, the bar is fun. Security was very good, you could claim your beach chair for the day, go to lunch and come back and your towels would still be there. They kept the vendors away if the guest weren't interested - it is a lot calmer near CoCo too.

My husband and I stayed in a Jr. Suite, # 516, for five nights. The room had two queen beds, nice balcony with two lounge chairs and a small table with 4 chairs, all overlooking the main pool, with children enjoying the pool usually in the morning. They were all relatively quiet and well behaved children. The wifi worked perfectly in the room. The bed was comfortable and the room was kept clean, thanks to Marie. The bathroom had the double shower; the water pressure was low, but there was always plenty of hot water. I do prefer room # 526 which has a king bed and faces away from the pool. We had breakfast at the hotel every morning, which varied depending on what was ordered. The beach bar and grill is a nice convenience, but we there are plenty of other options on the beach. We always enjoy a Coco melt upon our arrival. We ate dinner at the restaurant on our first night, and then tried different restaurants each evening. Their restaurant is just okay in my opinion, much better options nearby. The beach is nice with plenty of chairs and shade and good towel service. The security is top notch as well. Overall a pleasant stay in Negril, our fourth trip to Coco, and our 9th trip to Negril, and I would return to Coco again without hesitation, as well as to my other favorite hotel in the immediate vicinity.

I just got home to Connecticut, so a little tired and beat up. I have frequented JA many times. So this is not an exited novice review. To make a long story short, CocoLaPalm was a great find. Good price, good staff, right on beach, right across from excellent restaurants like "Best of the West", Coletta's, Miss Sonia's, etc. My housekeeper was Erika. You will be lucky if you have her to keep your room clean and in order. All the staff was cool. But the best part was the ease of relaxation at this place. We will return when business allows.
If I ran a place on the beach in Negril, I would hope for it to be like this place. they also give a free continental breakfast. But you can get an enhanced breakfast, and they take the price of what the continental breakfast would have cost off the price. So a really nice omelette ends up costing like $3. No real need for taxis because you can walk to so many places. Cool place. I am just depressed that I had to leave.
