There are a few different types of places to stay in negril. An all inclusive beach resort (or as i call it the lobster trap), a locally owned smaller but nice beach motel, the hotels or retreats on the cliffs, or one of the houses you can rent in the little bay country club. I had a really hard time choosing. My kids love the beach so i knew the cliffs werent for us. I hate getting sucked into overpriced, uptight inclusive resorts so that was out. I really liked the tree house and the house at little bay. Little bay is a few minute drive to food and town but its beach area is private so no people harrassing you trying to sell stuff. The pool is huge and about 1 block from this house. It is shared with the other houses there but that many people dont all stay there at the same time so the pool was relatively empty. The pool says it closes at 11 but its open all night if you have a light and want to swim late. Definitely dont rent a car at the airport. Driving out of montego bay with terrible dorections from the rental car company, no street signs and driving on the other side of the road at night was brutal. Not to mention they drive fast and pass everyone anytime. Call taras driver! I think his name is spelled marcheal 8764881502. Remember unless you have a global phone yours wont work there. I had to go into my settings and switch to the other lte network, not the global one, to make it work. Call your phone company before you go to let them know u are traveling there.
The house and set up was great and im glad we stayed there.
