i just got back from negril on the weekend, and another great stay at the cocolapalm. everything was great, as always. staff and food and beach, and room. i am always there for thanksgiving, in november, but decided to try a different time of year, and it was just as good. weather was great, a little rain, but good excuse to go to the bar for a drink or some jerk chicken.

Room Tip: i always have a superior room and i am very happy

We have been to Negril, Jamaica lots of times and the best place to stay is CocoLaPalm. It is a very comfortable, clean, friendly, perfect location resort. The staff are all fantastic and make you feel like it's your home away from home. We will continue to stay at CocoLaPalm each time as we love it.

Room Tip: There really isn't a bad room in the house.

This resort is situated in the middle and widest stretch of the 7-mile Beach in Negril. This a swimmer's paradise. The water is calm, bath-water temperature, no undertow; you can walk for quite a ways before it goes over your head. Loved strolling down the beach, purchasing a bottle of fresh-squeezed mango juice that he put in a wine bottle so you could carry it by the crook of its neck as you walked the beach. Met many repeat Coco la Palms visitors who have made this resort their place to return to every year. The security was excellent; I always felt secure here. Enjoyed eating across the street at Best in the West. 1/4 of jerk chicken with cole slaw and peas and rice for $6. Also enjoyed walking to the small quaint shopping mall Times Square, where there is an ATM, and a Blue Mountain store to buy the best coffee in the world. I am officially a Jamerican (an American who loves Jamaica). ;~)

I recently tried to plan a wedding at Cocolapalm. I ended up having to cancel the wedding and find another venue because the service there was so terrible. They acted as if they've never planned a wedding before. I had to initiate everything and when I asked for standard information my requests were either ignored or partially answered after a long waiting period. I complained several times that the service was awful and it remained the same. Planning a wedding is stressful enough as it is and CocoLaPalm did nothing but add to that stress. Save yourself the trouble and go else where.

Just got back from 5 nights at CocoLaPalm, definitely not long enough! Love this place. Best spot on the beach. Grounds are beautiful. Rooms very clean, thank you Erica! Easy check in and check out. Security is great. It has been six years since I have been here, after doing all inclusive, this was a nice change of pace. So many restaurants and bars up and down the beach. Love Coco and will be back!!!

We stayed for 10 days in February and again 10 days in March. The breakfast is fabulous! And the banana bread is dearly missed now that we are back home. Antonette (sp?) is a wonderful server. Erica is the best housekeeper and always made us smile with her towel art. Andrew the beach guard/manager always kept his eyes open and was always ready to answer any questions and help in anyway possible and Steve and Jermaine were always willing to set up a beach lounger. These people are such a huge asset to this hotel and really enjoy what they do. Many have been there for several years. Can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: In February we stayed in room 430 which was awesome. In March we stayed in room 323 and it was fair...
