Ali, I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at Gatehouse. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the villa, location, and especially the wonderful staff. From the moment the gate opened until we had to leave it was nothing but wonderful! Joanie took great care of us and the villa, as did Princess down... More

My husband and I are both in our 30's and have been staying here since the very first time in 2004. We consider this place "home" and would never stay anywhere else.

My husband and I are both 50 and have been married 32 years. We stumbled upon the Gatehouse in our late twenties. In our past 15 visits to Negril we have stayed (due to number in our traveling party) at only two other hotels on the beach. We always come back to our "Upstairs" room at the Gatehouse. We love...

This little hidden treasure is perfect for vacationers who are looking to stay someplace comparable to a cottage. It had everything we asked for and exceeded our expectations.

This is a cool bar with great staff. I will make sure to swing by here on every single pub crawl we do. Great vibes is to be had here..... My friends and I spent a couple different days here thoroughly enjoying ourselves.

It's very unfortunate that our guest had an unpleasant experience. She left without giving reason, and I did not hear from her until after she was gone (the next day), expecting her money back. Interestingly, most hotels that you stay with would not just refund your money at the last minute, either. They are unable to rebook the room in... More

We just got back from Jamaica two weeks ago... wonderful trip. We stayed 4 days at Gatehouse. The place was clean, the view of the ocean was AMAZING, GraceAnn the bartender was a great resource (and dirty banana maker), Joan the housekeeper was very sweet, and the location was perfect.

We were recently looking for an affordable beautiful getaway on a white sand beach in the Caribbean (at the last moment) and chanced upon the gatehousevilla. What luck. Spent 8 nights there and it couldn't have been better. Joannie, our housekeeper, and Princess Grace Ann, our bartender at the perfect small beach bar on the property, both became great friends....

“We loved our downstairs room in the front and it connected to the kitchen. The stairs for the upstairs room is a small spiral set.”

“I stayed in the front room with my boyfriend and might recommend bringing an eye mask if you are not an early riser. While the foliage around the villa keeps a nice shade over the property, it can get a bit bright. Also, if you have not travelled to Jamaica before, in my experience, the mattresses are a bit hard. I've stayed at a few locations and have found this to be true for all of them, but have not had any trouble due to it, just a fair warning.”
