The Cliff (USD 325/500 d low/high) is a secluded upscale boutique hotel and villa complex just past Negril's lighthouse. The 33 spacious rooms, 22 located in a hotel block and the balance in villas, wrap around a large open garden peppered with palm trees and criss-crossed by an enormous multi-level swimming pool and meadering paths. Zest Restaurant, the dining option on property, caters to in-house guests and visitors (by reservation), with some of the most inspiring meals in Negril and indoor and al fresco seating areas. It sits atop the limestone cliffs facing the sea, while a bar is located just below. Rooms at The Cliff are well appointed with cushy sofas inside and simple wicker furniture on the balconies. Soft tones create a relaxing ambiance and alluring pastel paintings hang from the walls, encouraging romance. Soft cotton linens, firm mattresses and flufly pillows ensure peaceful rest in four-poster mahogany beds. Showers have rainwater shower heads and hand made in Jamaica soaps infused with essential oils are invigorating. For those needing to stay connected, the WiFi signal is strong and the bedrooms have flat-panel TVs. A mini fridge is found in all the rooms, along wth A/C and water decanters.
