“Merril's III”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

We were ar Merrils III from February 11, 2012 until February 25th. The staff is very friendly and willing to please. Really liked Charlie and Donovan. It is true that 1/2 of the resort is booked as Negril Relax, however the restaurant is run by Merrils. It was nice to be able to use any of the Merrils resorts, but I really think that the beach was the best at III. Rooms are OK, the balcony was nice. We would sit out there after leaving the beach and play cards or dice. Remember this isn't a 5 Star hotel, so don't expect one. The staff really does try to please and are friendly. A good number of Europeans stay here, so be prepared for that. Rasta Mickey comes by on the beach each day trying to book trips on his glass bottom boat. He was a riot. I happen to love Jamaica, so as always the friendly people and gorgeous weather make the trip!

We were in Negril for 10 days. We booked a room online through a 3rd party. when we arrived, we were told the hotel was booked - no room for us. The young ladies at the front desk were very dry and uncareing. This is my 9th time in Jamaica and I have never had this problem. We attempted to speak to the hotel manager but she was too busy, her cell phone range 6 times and she answered it each time with even saying "excuse me". We left and found a room at white sands. We gave the resort another chance and had breakfast there a few days late. The food was very good and there was a lot of it!! We took a look at one of the VACANT rooms which was your basic, clean room. There is no pool. It appears that the reservation area is very unorganized and do not apoligize for it. We did get our money transferred to White Sands. We may give Negril Relax another chance but will book directly with the hotel.

Room Tip: The poor service I received was at the front desk only. The waitstaff in the dining area were very n...

This place should not be called an all inclusive resort more like a run down motel.... The room i stayed in was outdated and not clean. The bathroom did not have any towels, wash rags or anything and not to mention the tub was filthy, Housekeeping took forever to come and clean the room and when she did she only clean the bathroom by running water in the tub and flushing the toilet. The towel had pubic hairs on it just disgusting. There was no remote in the room when we went to front desk to ask for one they said that there were none...also no irons in the rooms. I wasn't expecting a 5 star resort but I at least wanted to feel comfortable in the room I was in and that was not the case...I couldnt even sleep under the sheets. my buddy and I slept on top of the sheets bc we were so grossed out by this dump. The food wasnt so bad. There was no variety so whatever was available that was it. They served the same thing for breakfast for the 3 days I was there.
Front desk people should learn more on customer care service and how to talk to people properly. Overall the staff was ok!
I would not recommend this place to anyone this by far has been the worse hotel I stayed in!

We stayed at the Honeymoon cottage at Merrils 3 with has a jaccuzzi which was phenomenal after a nice busy day at the beach.
We love the buffet style food as we can select what and how much to eat.
Also, we both like the Jamaican music entertainment.
We have told our friends about it.

Great place, great, location, great staff what else do you need, rooms a little dated but how much time do you spend in your room. Food was good not the same variety as you would get in a 5 star but what they have is fresh and good (no line ups). Staff were great and because this is a smaller resort there is a personal touch everybody remembers you. I would highly recommend this resort if you want fun, a great beach and reasonable price. We will return for sure.

We would stay again if we got another good deal. The rooms are dated, but clean. They have air, cable, closets, dressers, safes, tile floors, and balconies. The air worked most of the time and we had hot water most of the time. The safe costs $3 a day and they do not provide blow dryers. The maids did a great job cleaning every day. The staff was great. The bartenders were awesome. The food was good. We never ate anywhere else. We spent lots of time at Merrils II becasuse they had the better beach chairs. You have access to all three Merrils, but the food is the same at all three. Plenty of places to hang within walking distance. The alcohol selection at the bars isn't good. Appleton Rum is the best they got. The beer is draft. Good thing for fun bartenders. Hey Fitz and Atoll!! We had great weather and a great beach. Miss it already!!
