We stayed here last year for our honeymoon for two nights. I decided to add this late review after seeing these almost unanimously positive reviews. First of all, this place is STUNNING. No doubt. Prettiest views of Jamaica we saw all week.
However, if you are staying here off-season (unless this has since changed), this place is super inconvenient and quite creepy. There were NO employees on the grounds the entire time except for a groundsman walking around with a machete (he even gave us our keys at a very weird "check-in"). No food options, even like for a simple breakfast or just a cup of coffee. This place was compleeetely empty besides me, my new husband, and machete dude.
There are some unsavory characters in Negril, and we did not feel safe here, to say the least. The setting was like the opening scenes of a horror movie, albeit beautiful.
I wish we'd have stuck to Idle Awhile/Stay Awhile, which we LOVED!
