You don't need to spend a lot to get to a near-perfect place.
Nirvana on the Beach offers very affordable accommodations in Negril. The rooms are located steps from the beach. But, none of the crowds and hassle of giant, all-inclusive resorts here. This place promotes a relaxed, calming environment for guests in the hotels handful of rooms.
The rooms range from rustic, well-appointed cabins to beach apartments. All are worthy of the cost and effort to get here. Beds are comfortable and showers are generally available in the rooms and outside.
The beach is nicely kept. Trustworthy security guards watch over guests and their possessions on the beach. The guards are keen to minimize any distraction or aggressive selling from "pandlers" who stroll the beach.
The cleaning crews will actually make fresh orange juice and cook authentic Jamaican meals (or any other type of food they know how to make; just ask). All the guests have to do is buy the provisions. Grocery stores are an easy 15-minute ride away. Nirvana provides almost-constant access to good, reliable drivers in the area.
There are not too many activities available though the hotel itself. However, I've visited Nirvana many times and, as an avid SCUBA diver, always managed to check a local yellow pages or website to pick up a dive with a local company.
Nirvana on the Beach promotes a safe, quiet, and friendly environment. If you stay more than a night or two it's hanrd not to make friends with most of the staff. The hardest part of staying at Nirvana, though, is having to leave.
