“Footeprints in Negril”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Footeprints is a small quiet resort located on an excellent part of the beach in Negril.
It is basic, clean and friendly. The price was right and we felt welcomed and safe. It seems some people want a "perfect" experience with out really thinking about where they are. We like to experience the culture of Jamaica and the staff are an important element for us.
Here's the deal.
It's basic
It's clean
It's friendly. If you have a problem with hot water or amenities, they take care of it. It's not the Ritz, but then again , we wouldn't be comfortable at the Ritz. It's a real taste of Jamaica.
This resort was one of the first to use solar energy over 25 years ago, and the owners are from the area, so they are part of the community.

Room Tip: These rooms are basic and clean. Safe & quiet. The waves crashing can get tiresome, so sometime...

It was an OK hotel. It was a very nice beach and bar, but they tried to charge us extra for more than two people per room. We were sent here because they are a sister hotel to the one we were going to stay was overbooked. The one room was nice with a fridge and stove. The outside looks great as they were painting it as we were entering. Not my first choice, but far from my last choice.

Never Ever stay at this hell hole! The Staff & Owners are a bunch of fraudsters all the positive reviews on here are added by the managment! The hotel is old, run down, dirty, vile, smelly and full of big fat roaches and other pests.
It is not worth the money infact I would not stay here for free. I would not recommend my worse enemy to stay here it is like hell on earth.
The hotel is also full of shady characters, drug dealers & thefts. They watch you and beg you for money and pester you to buy drugs from them everyday. You could get robbed or held up by gunman down there. No hotel security. The staff are rude & unhelpful,
Staying here is not enjoyable you will surely have the worst time of your life.
This hotel should be knocked down and rebuilt, it is not fit for purpose. The jazcuzzi is full of frogs.its dirty and full of algee. The bar is overpriced and the restaurant serves awful food the kitchen is riddle with cockroaches avoid eating and staying at this dirty awful place at all costs, you will regret it and it will spoil you experience of Jamaica and ruin your holiday!

Room Tip: Never Ever Stay Here!!!!!!!

I stayed there for dream weekend 2013, it was horrible. The place is dirty. The staff there are con artist. You do not get what you pay for. The person who owns it shows no interest in fixing the place up. The place is not safe to stay. Do not go by the pictures that you see on the website, the place does not look anything like that.

My family and I were staying next door and our resort restaurant was terribly busy. So we went to Foote Prints instead. It was just terrible. There was no waitress, just the bartender and we were never even offered anything to drink. We ordered our appetizers and food and waited for 1 1/2 hours for just the appetizers. I ordered the Conch Fritter which was nothing but breading and my parents ordered the Shrimp Cocktail. Now that was the real joke. The Shrimp looked like they came out of the can...those tiny little things that you buy cheap in the store. There were about 8 arranged around a huge sundae cup that was filled with lettuce. It cost $15!

Then the main course came. My fiance ordered the spaghetti and meatballs, my sister the pasta with marinara sauce and my grandma sweet and sour chicken or something like that. They all had the same sauce on them! I have never tasted anything like it before...and not in a good way. All 8 of us were very disappointed with our entire experience there. We would NEVER go back there again. The prices were outrageous...especially considering what you were getting!
