We stayed in a kitchenette room right on the beach - our balcony looked out over the beach. The rooms could use some upgrades i.e. the cabinets are peeling a little, the countertops were cracked some, the backs of the blackout curtains were a little worn etc. That being said we thought it was totally fine. It was clean and spacious. We loved having the kitchenette in our room and actually used it a bunch to cook either breakfast or lunch. My husband got shocked by the electric stove a couple of times but when I reported it to the staff, they immediately got an electrician in to fix it.
The front desk staff were great, I believe it's just two very hard working women and they were very friendly and helpful.
The location is of course why you would stay here, it's amazing. You just can't go wrong being right on 7 mile beach.
My only real piece of advice would be about the cabs. All the hotels I have ever stayed at in Negril want you to take their recommended drivers. My advice is to never do this. They are significantly more expensive than if you just go out to the street and negotiate yourself.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. It's clean, safe and in a great location. If you think you are going to pay less than $100 a night right on the beach and get the Ritz, you are mistaken. If you want a clean, basic, safe place to stay, this is your place!
