When we arrived at the hotel it was late. We were shown straight to our room by one of the fantastic staff, but we first walked inside I thought we'd made a mistake. The room was in need of decorating. However when we woke up the next morning and went down to breakfast ( great) we realised we had stumbled...

Room was clean and big. Two beds, dresser, night table, tv, ductless A/C that works perfectly. Bathroom with tub but no plug for it? Room had a front porch...

The rooms need renovation (which the owners are working on) but they were very clean. The staff was amazing, friendly and accomodating. Food was fabulous. Loved the full breakfast and lobster pizza. Food was great! Very laid back and location was near many activities. Lots of local music nearby and cannot wait to return.

The staff is awesome! Very personable and on top of things. We had 2 small issues and they were attended too immediately. Great beach and perfect location. I can't wait to go back next year. Only complaints; I would like to see an upgrade on the televisions though and wifi didn't work in the rooms. Only in the common areas.

Stopped by Jamaica Tamboo for another one of their fantastic lobster pizzas. There were 4 of us, and I don't remember what everyone else had - I was too busy eating my pizza as slowly as I could so it would last as long as it could. big chunks of perfectly cooked lobster and all the rest of the fixings...

Overall stay was homey and laid back. If peace and quiet is what you are looking for this is not the resort. Music started blasting from 9am straight until 12am every day religiously, I had no prob. On my first night I was without water, had to call the property manager. No cable for the entire stay. No iron, had...

Property is on the beach, rooms are good size and clean. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. This is not a large property and not all inclusive which means you have choices and can enjoy the whole of Negril. Breakfast is included, lunck and dinner are available. Strongly recommend for those not looking for all inclusive.
