We are just back from a week's stay in Negril. We decided to split our trip between the cliffs and the beach this time, and picked Catcha Falling Star for our cliff stay.
From the minute we walked in, we knew we would love it. The girls in the office were outstanding, Mauvette helping with anything we needed. It was great seeing her smiling face and just stopping to say hi! She went out of her way to help with anything we needed.
The resort itself is beautiful. A small place, with plenty of privacy. We stayed in Venus, wow! The room had a bedroom, with a very comfortable bed and plenty of space. Two rooms in the bathroom, living room and full kitchen. The porch had table and chairs, and a couch which I loved to lounge on in the mornings with my coffee and book and look out at the most specacular view. Every morning they offered free coffee from about 6 am, which was great for me an early riser.
The bar area was fun, led by Kevin the bartender. A great guy who made outstanding drinks!! Rum punch, Pina coladas, yummy! Always had a few people there to talk to and have fun with. Also, you can have your meals brought to your room to enjoy on your patio if you would like.
The pool area was nice. Plenty of spots to sun and relax. There are loungers in different areas, some on the cliffs so you could even have some privacy if you wanted while relaxing. My only complaint was that if you were not there early in the morning, guest liked to claim their chairs with towels, even if they didn't show up until four hours later! They had a hot tub that was not working while we were there, but when it is, it would probably be nice in the evenings.
The grounds are beautiful, and taken well cared of. I had heard that TS Nicole had destroyed alot of the flowers, but they must have worked very hard, because it was very nice.
The staff was outstanding. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful, big hellos when you walked by.
We had a few meals there, which were all very good. Ivan's does have some very good food.
We were in the newer building, but the cottages looked very nice, I may pick one of them next time.
I didn't go into the sea, it was very rough the few days we were there, but they had floats tied off, and it looked like alot of fun and the access looked very easy to get in.
Ben, the resident dog was a sweatheart!! He liked to escort us around when we came down from our room.
There are quite a few places close to eat at and drink if you want to explore. Seastar was only a few minute walk outside the gate, Alice's across the street for breakfast, a jerk chicken stand directly across from Catcha was also very goodl (Leroy?)
We walked down to Erica's one night for dinner, for outstanding lobster, give it a try!
Also, very close to Rick's, but why go there, we had the same sunset at Catcha with great people!! Be careful walking, it can be a little tricky at times!
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Catcha, and definately will be back. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful stay! If you want relaxation, with party spots very close, give it a try - you will not regret it!!
