We had a good stay at the Spa. The rooms were great with great views. The rooftop rooms have the added advantage of getting to watch the sunset from your own porch. The staff was very friendly and was ready to help us with anything. Great people.
The blue mahoe restaurant had good food the two to three times we had food there. There are a lot of good food options nearby. So jump in one of the route taxis that you get from the front and venture out. Loved the steeply priced moringa smoothie.
The pool was nice with a great view. There is no shade whatsoever in the pool area. The inside of the folded cabanas made them into mini saunas for me with no way for the breeze to get to you. There were not enough umbrellas around either. You get to enjoy the friendly dog Rosa's company for free around the pool.

FYI they do allow teenagers on the property even if it's an adult only resort.

Overall nice experience at the Spa retreat.

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled to learn that you enjoyed the breathtaking ocean views and friendly service offered by our SPA team! We do agree that a breezy spot under one of our umbrellas is an ideal place to be for a relaxing day on our beach deck! While our shaded cabanas offer complete shelter from the sun, wonderful for an early afternoon "siesta", your recommendation for more umbrellas is much appreciated. As an exclusive boutique property, refined young adults are welcome as our guests with the understanding of the tranquil environment we aim to offer. We look forward to your return one day, soon come!

This place truly exceeded our expectations, despite reading every single fantastic review prior to coming. The excellence stems from a combination of the friendliest and most genuine staff you could possibly imagine, a serene setting with great amenities, and fantastic food. This place is incredible, and absolutely deserves to be rated among the best resorts in the Caribbean. We have been to numerous other "higher end" Caribbean destinations such as St John and the B.V.I, but the food and service far surpassed anything we encountered elsewhere. The property itself is flawless. So clean and well kept. I was honestly a bit worried about not having a beach, but as some of the other reviewers have said, you really don't miss it at all. We had the best days just lounging on the deck, swimming in the pool and jumping off the cliffs into the sparkling Caribbean. I wish only the best success to the property owners and especially their fantastic staff. They've got a great thing going and I cannot wait to return!

This was a perfect spot for a relaxing getaway for a couple! The location is perfect and the owners have done a wonderful job creating a warm, elegant and aesthetically pleasing venue. There is a strong attention to to detail throughout the whole property which is not common at all at most Caribbean accommodations. Everything from the real brass fixtures on the doors and outdoor showers to the nice wooden accents in the rooms exhibited how much thought has gone into creating this lovely facility. Most striking to us was that the service was fantastic. It was almost as though the staff anticipated our needs and wants before we did! We loved the snorkeling right in front of the hotel, we saw eagle rays, squid, skate, lobster, lionfish, etc. We did not mind that the access to the water was via ladder down the cliffs, although it might not be that easy for everyone. We really liked the relaxing environment, we never felt as though the place was crowded even though the hotel was at capacity. We ate 90% of our meals for our week long stay at the restaurant and each meal was excellent. All juices were freshly-squeezed and I brought some of the delicious coffee home with me. Spa experience was very pleasant, the staff was great and we loved having the treatments outdoors. The owners are very keen to change the image of what Jamaica has to offer. They are doing a great job utilizing the abundance of fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood that is so plentiful in Jamaica to provide a place that so many are seeking nowaways...high quality accommodation, excellent fresh cuisine, and a service-minded staff. We were so impressed when the owner gave us a credit for something we did not even ask for! We looked at all places in Negril while we were there, we would not choose any other place! It would have been nice to have a fresh-water pool and jacuzzi, but after a few days, we were so happy with our stay, that it did not matter! Donovan was like our private driver the whole time and always arrived earlier than anticipated. Richmond and Duwayne were awesome out at the pool bar and Monique and Marcia made our breakfasts so special. We very much appreciated Winsome, Jacqueline and CarrieAnne at the spa too! We shall return!

Room Tip: We had Rooftop 3 and it was perfect....halfway between the spa and the restaurant and a few steps from the terrace pool.

I will keep it short and simple. My wife and I have had the priveledge of traveling to many high end tropical destinations and The Spa in Negril gave us a different feeling than anywere else. The staff is what makes it so special. Yes the rooms, Blue Mahoe, drinks, sunsets, views, swimming, spa are simply amazing you can get these things at several other resorts. What you can't get is a staff that caters to your every need and ensures that you are completely relaxed and satisfied. I have no complaints except that I wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for a greaet Winter get away.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. If you can afford it stay in the Seaside Cottages
