The location is phenomenal--breath taking setting right on the ocean, with waterside dining, and small villas with ocean views. Perfect for chilling out, reading, sun bathing. We spent time on 7Mile beach to have a sandy beach option-- the Negril Palms-this is a "sister" place you can visit for free that has umbrellas, a bar, etc., but it is a...

It was just perfect for an intimate getaway for our 25th anniversary. The location is secluded but just a 10 minute taxi ride to the 7 mile beach and Negril town. The setting, food and hospitality of the staff was incredible.
