My wife and I stayed at The Westender from February 13-19. Like so many others, we were drawn here because of all the fabulous reviews on Tripadvisor. I never reviewed any other hotel with a 100% favorable rating, so I had to see it for myself. Last year we stayed on 7 mile beach, so this year we wanted to see the other side of Negril. We absolutely love the casual vibe of Negril, along with the people, food and scenery.
I am happy to report that Westender is everything they say it is, and more. It truely is one of the best places we ever stayed, and not because it is some over the top fabulous resort. In fact, we loved it for the opposite reason. It is as casual, laid back and friendly as Negril itself. It is not at all pretentious. You really do feel like you've made new friends, both staff and guests, when you stay there. It is secluded, which is sometimes a plus and sometimes a minus depending on your mood. The good news is you can always go to town or the beach when you want to, because they will take you there. It really is the best of both worlds. I think that this would be the perfect place for people that go to all inclusives because they feel safe there. I have never felt safer than I did at Westender. But, as so many others have said before, the best part is the people. You feel more like you are staying with family than at some impersonal resort. Everyone knows your name, and you know theirs. One night they even let me make my own Martini at the bar. Where else can you find that?! The views are great, the food was great, and it was the most comfortable bed I ever slept on in Negril, which isn't really known for comfortable beds.
I almost wanted to write a bad review so that we could be sure to keep this treasure to ourselves, but that just wouldn't be fair. I will just have to hope that there will be room available when we want to return, because we will return! Thanks to everyone at Westender for making us feel so special. Hi to Stephanie and Garth as well. We hope the rest of your stay went well, and that you returned to Vancouver safely.
