“Good old Bar B Barn showing some age”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2010

My wife and I stayed over New Year's at the Bar-B-Barn hotel on the beach in Negril. We had stayed there nearly 13 years before on our first trip together and wanted to go back to where we started. Well, the nice botique type hotel, bar, restaurant and the friendly staff are still around, but the rooms and furnishings look like they have not been changed in many years. You can't beat the location, service and the costs though. All the place needs is a little TLC in the rooms with sitting chairs (ours had a broken cushion), dressers (no pull knobs on drawers) and light shades ( not attached to fixtures and just sitting precariously on the bulbs). But who stays in the room much anyway...the beach is awsome and Mr. Security Man keeps things cool. We would recommend the Bar-B-Barn over many much more expensive resorts in Negril anytime you are on a budget..

The price is oustanding. It started when I was great at Montego Bay Airport by Charlie the Taxi Driver/Tour Guide. Very Polite. Very Friendly. It was what in it for me not him. Greated at minute one by Angela the Hotel Manager. She is very friendly and very versed in the art of Hospitality. She gets it. The staff is very well trained, smart, friendly, accomodating and fun. Thanks to Ann Marie Jesse and Maureen. You are all the best and I don't just say that. My mother is in the hospitality business here in Boston and I would recomend them to here any time. Food is Good. Very tasty Jerk Sauce. I met three security guards on site. All very well mannered trained and friendly. Third shift guard Iva Wellington returned my lost wallet on night one. He said " I did the right thing" He did for sure! The location is on the beach that is alittle more relaxed. It gets more colorful further down so it is their when you want it which you will. Best New Years Eave of my life at Albert's Ocean Palace 20 Foot Sounds System with excellent Selector.

GO TO BAR -B-BARN Oh yeah and Alton at the front desk was great too.

Yours truly John from Boston just back to Boston and Snow storms

my stay at this hotel from the start was poor management ,electric went off first nite i was there no back up generater were u think a hotel with 37 rooms would have such things like that in place. was bitten to bits by bed lice.the food in the hotel was overly price so ate a sweet spice were food was great and good price .never go there again . if management put more effect in to looking after there customers than tryin to rip them off then it would be a better place.

Bar-B-Barn is a family run hotel that makes you feel like a part of the family while on your stay there. The food is excellent (must try Angela's Italian restaurnat). The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. Lots of fun if you're vacationing with friends and romantic if you're visiting with that "special someone". Great location on Negri's seven mile beach. October will be my third visit to b-b-barn and I can't want.

Pros: The food at Angela's was OUTSTANDING! The hotel is located on a beautiful part of the beach with plenty of beach chairs and a couple palapas for shade. There is a store on the property as well as next door to the property on Norman Manley Blvd. It is also close to shopping (Time Square is across the street) and a Cambio to exhange money.

Cons: All of the rooms are NOT as they are advertised on the website. Some of the rooms have been remodeled, but the room given to us was DISGUSTING!!! There were no towels in the bathroom when we arrived, the room seemed dirty and it needed a new paint job. The baseboards around the room were beat up, and the door to the bathroom had damage that looked like it had been forced open at some point. We did not even stay the night, and moved to another hotel several hours after we checked in.

We were with a group of people and a couple other guests moved out once they saw their room. The guests that stayed were in nicer/remodeled rooms that looked like the ones on the website.

I know that you get what you pay for (our rate was $65 US), but I don't think that a clean room that doesn't look like it's been through a war is too much to ask.

If you stay here, be aware that not all of the rooms are the same!!
