“great place to stay!”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

Came back from Jamaica only yesterday and this was our final accommodation. We spent there 4 nights. Great location. Downtown in walking distance and so are all hot spots on the beach. Great bar right next to it which makes excellent cocktails during happy hours :) We didn't have really hot water and the cold one was coming out in a very weak stream but after 2 weeks in Jamaica we got used to it and this was not an issue for us :)

Room Tip: Definitely go for the first one on the beach! Number 1 and 2.

My husband and i stayed here two week ago.I have to say we enjoyed the stay there,it was very peaceful.The only complain i have is that they turn off the water late night.Water pressure is very low.DO NOT GO TO SWEET SPOT .They have become sour spot,food is'nt tasty as it use to be and the females in there charge you what ever they feel like ROBBING you for that night. Litterally.I will never go back to sweet spot,they are robbers.

Just got home, & wishing I was still there...
Always remember, your holiday is what you make it..
Our Arrival started off not to great, we did not get picked up by the driver we had made arrangements with prior to arrival so needless to say, we didn't get out to the Cottages until quite late...

The Cottage was clean, bed was very comfortable ( which is important for myself, as I have a real bad back, so this was a welcome beginning for me)...Pillows are very firm, so if you have a bad back / neck I would suggest you bring your own pillow from home ( I did)...

The resort next door ( to the left facing the beach) was SO LOUD.. until 4 am we could not sleep.... even after putting ear plugs in, the vibration from the bass kept us up...thank goodness it was just the one night thing ( boxing day party).... for the rest of the week , it was tolerable & shut down at a decent hour....I would not recommend eating there , they cater to there guest only & was very pricey & to top it off I was brutally sick for the rest of the day..... the resort on the right side facing the beach.... Very decent priced, good food , service a little slow, but you have to remember, you are in Jamaica!!...Where they do everything slow. other then Drive!!..

Back to the Cottages.........

We had stove issues . . but Mr Ansell & Miss Beverly bought us a new stove the next day, they are very accommodating, with what ever you need to make your stay an enjoyable one.

It came equipped with Kitchen ware, but very minimal...and if there was something you needed, all you had to do was ask!

There is no hot water in the Kitchen, just cold.. but the bathroom has hot/cold running water.

We stayed in # 6.... Awesome view of the beach....was great to sit on the veranda in the morning and have your coffee....the beach is literally 40 steps away. it was great! ........

There was a security guard on, threw the night...

We had no problems & nothing was stolen....( I just wouldn't leave anything on your veranda at night)

You are abut 1/4 mile out of town.... so it was very walkable....

Cottages # 5-6 are the only units that have air conditioning....( we also had a TV, not all cottages do)


For new years Eve Mr. ANsell & Miss Beverly made everyone that was staying there .. an authentic Jamaican Jerk Chicken dinner that her brother MArio made..... I have to say.. it was the juiciest, best tasting jerk chicken I have ever had on the island....

So all in all...... If you are looking to be pampered and have the 4-5 star experience..... this is not the place for you ....

If you are looking for a more down to the locals , budget conscience holiday, where you are clean and safe... this place is great...

I would defiantly go back.. but not for just a week..... shopping and going back & forth into town( for water, ect).. was time consuming ...

I formed a special bond with Miss Beverly ( she come across as ruff and tough, but when you get to know the real her she is a sweetheart..... she will forever be my friend... she is my Little Jamaican Sister , from another Mister!!

I will post more pictures later, & if you have any question feel free to ask...

Peace out

We have been going to Negril for 6 years now always go for the month April. We have stayed at many different location but come back to Ansell's no it is not a 5 star but the staff make up for that . These cottages are your basic one room with bathroom and cooking area the cooking area consist of a 2 burner stove on oven what I call a bar fridge but we found is that at the reasonable price you pay for your stay we cooked our breakfast and lunch and could afford to go out on the town for our dinners. The fridge is perfect for your bacon and eggs , bread , butter and left plenty of room to cool your red stripe lol shopping is very close just a 5 minute walk to town. Rooms are very clean and washer and dryer available at the main house , main house can also be rented it is 3 bedrooms , 2 bathrooms , living room dinning room full kitchen . If you are on a budget I would suggest you try Ansell's Thatch Walk you wont be disappointed .

Barbara & Tim stayed at Ansell's Cottage in April 2009 and Wow! What convenience, cleanliness, Service and an overall wonderful experience. This is the Condo to stay in.
Directly on the beach, cooking area, Frig, privacy and just one excellent experience.

You cannot go wrong staying at Ansell's Thatch Walk Cottages.

Reviewed 17 April 2009

My partner had stayed at Ansells 10 years ago and loved it then. This time round we arrived in Negril looking for accommodation and was pleased to find Ansell and Fay were still there. We were only going to stay a couple of nights but ended up staying a whole week. The other reviews are very informative so I'll just add in a few bits. The location is ideal from the town area. The place is small so its not difficult to find your way around by foot. We ate at a place called Ocean Breeze every night which is behind a hotel (can't remember the name) but the best access is from the beach anyway. Great food and service depending on who the waiter is. I have never stayed in a place like Ansells before and I'm glad I did. There are not many places where you can eat breakfast on the verandah looking out onto the ocean for $60 a night. The rooms and kitchens are basic but thats not a bad thing. You just need to bring your own washing up liquid etc. The overall experience is worth it. The only word of warning is do not open the door if anybody knocks in the middle of the night. There wasn't always a guard on at night. Do not leave things out on the porch unless you don't want them anymore. It is noisy at night because of all the other hotels playing music until all hours. We used earplugs.
