Negril and the West



Negril definitely has something for everyone when it comes to finding the ideal place to stay. From couples-only, all-inclusive resorts, to hip, inexpensive independent cottages by the sea and exclusive villas, there's an option for every taste and budget. Low-season and high-season rates apply here as much as, if not more than, the other tourism centers on the island. Some establishments increase rates in the middle of the low season for special events like Independence weekend at the beginning of August, when Jamaicans from "yard" and "abroad" flock for a torrent of nonstop parties that last for days on end.

Accommodations and food are divided geographically by Negril's roundabout, which can be used to distinguish between the properties on either side of Norman Manley Boulevard from those on the other side of town along West End Road, also referred to as "The Cliffs". Within each price category, the accommodations are organized from north to south.

Seven-Mile Beach starts at the mouth of Negril River and stretches the length of Long Bay as well as Bloody Bay farther north. Long Bay is fronted by a multitude of small hotels as well as large all-inclusive resorts on its northern end.

Skylark Negril Beach Resort

Skylark Negril Beach Resort (from US$95/175 Low/High) is a modern, minimalist 28-room boutique hotel that wouldn't be out of place on Miami Beach, though it clearly draws creative inspiration from a deep appreciation of Jamaica and its singular culture and musical heritage. The beach club vibe begins in the airy lobby where leafy wallpaper and bamboo ceiling panels add organic elements that warm the white washed walls adorned with classic Jamaica posters.

Idle Awhile Villas

Idle Awhile Villas (USD 300/400 low/high per bedroom, plus 20% taxes and gratuity) were taken over by Jamaican hotelier Lee Issa and managed by his wife's boutique hotel group, both stellar operators who are never too far to be engaged in the day-to-day. The property was acquired in 2015 and underwent upgrades before being reopened gracing Seven-Mile beach with a top-notch villa offering. The villas come all the amenities of home, and then some, like king-size beds, wifi and a billiards table, butler, chef and housekeepers.

Home Sweet Home Resort

Home Sweet Home (US$99/169-US$139/259 low/high season) is a no-frills cliffside accommodation that has basically everything you need to be comfortable on Negril's West End: clean rooms with A/C and TV, balconies overlooking the Caribbean, a pool and a little restaurant with decent food. The location is also good, as it's one of the first hotels heading southwest on West End Road from the roundabout that marks the center of Negril, so it's quite proximate to Seven-Mile Beach. Wi-Fi is included.

Bluefields Villas

Bluefields Villas are easily the area's most luxurious accommodation option, and among the most scrupulously maintained villas in Jamaica. If you've ever had the desire to feel like royalty, there is no better place than The Hermitage (US$5,600/8,400 weekly low/high season). Antique furniture and four-poster beds, seamlessly integrated with the classic design of the spacious villa, seem to have been specially created for a neocolonialist emperor.
