Stayed here in March 2017. Have walked by Firefly for over 15 years while staying at other properties and always was curious about the place. Enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Our room was a basic cottage type room with a kitchen, cable tv, and AC. Great location. Super hard working staff. The property has been around since the 70's and has a very laid back feel to it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room further from the road.

This hotel was right on the beach. It has a restaurant and bar. Though clean and comfy, this hotel is quite old and in need of some love and care. The breakfast provided was good as was the dinner we ate there.

Room Tip: We were in a unit out near the road. The wifi signal was intermittent.

My experience at the Cottage was pleasant from check in until check out, everyting IRIE as they say in Jamaica.
It's a small beachfront rustic cottage with a restaurant and bar.
Prices are middle of the range.
I booked the hotel on Airbnb for a great rate. Check around, and always check with a travel agent first.
The bar I thought was a bit over priced. double the cost for 2 drinks that I paid for an amazing steamed fish dinner. AMAZING is the word. Chad in the kitchen gets my vote for chef on Negril.
Bed was comfy.
I had plenty of space in the studio/rm10, the room had an electric or maybe gas grill which I didn't use, a coffee maker, sink and also a refrig which came in handy.
Was on 2nd level upstairs, and also had a private bathroom.
Note - no shampoo!
I felt safe which is important as I traveled alone.
The beach is excellent. right on 7 mile.
Walking distance to music and food if you want to eat off resort. I walked to Best in the West for Jerk chicken upon the recommendation from guests.
The guests here and friendly, as are the staff.
Thank you Troy for carrying my over 50lb suitcase to the 2nd level!
The grounds are manicured beautifully by Bim the groundsman.
I didn't manage to see humming birds -the national bird but I did see the feeder.
Check-in was quick
Marlene at the bar was most pleasant - HELLO !
I'll for sure return to this special place.

Great staff, breakfasts were fantastic and authentic, great location right on the beach.

Only down side was the fridge in our room was so noisy it woke us up at night and it took until the last night before it was fixed.

Would recommend this as a place to stay.

Room Tip: Penthouse looked like the nicest room, try that one.

+++ Special mention: We forgot our winter jackets there and they shipped those to USA for us. Thank you so much!!!!!
+ We spent 10 days here over the xmax break and loved our stay.. the staff is very friendly and always there to help.. We met other people staying there.. and it all felt like a big family.. Some people have been coming here for 6 years, 8 years and so on. This was our first stay and we definitely want to go back
+ The rooms are spotless and have no insects. Remember you are on the beach and around lots of trees, so it is hard to maintain, but the housekeeping ladies do a great job..!!
+ The view from the beachfront penthouse is awesome..!!! (you do have to climb up the stairs though)
+ The restaurant is right on the beach and makes delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. (There are only a couple of vegetarian options on the menu for lunch and dinner though). We did eat breakfast here regularly and enjoyed looking at the morning ocean..
+ Our son (3 year old) loved his time here.. he made friends with the staff and they would always stop to talk/listen to him.. When we were leaving, he went around telling everybody that he is leaving, but he will be back soon!
He could play in the sand while we eat our breakfasts or go into the water (with an eye on him).. the water is perfect too.. not too many waves, very swimmable for young kids.
+ It was good to have a small kitchenette and we used it mostly for storing+reheating leftovers and also cooked eggs a couple of times.
+ The bartender made great drinks and they also provide room service which was a big plus for us to enjoy drinks+dinner in the balcony when our kid would sleep early.

- There was an issue with the booking. I booked on tripadvisor (through booking.com) and had a confirmation. When we called 2 days before our arrival to organize airport pickup, hotel didn't have our reservation, they said the room we booked (beachfront penthouse) was not available for 2 out of 10 nights (even though it showed so on booking.com at the time of booking) and they sent us an email about it which I never received..! The rooms were not gone yet and we were able to book beachfront penthouse for 8 nights and gardenview penthouse for the last 2 nights (not sure if they had held those rooms for us or we just got lucky). So it worked out, but if the rooms had been booked out, it would have been a total disaster because it was xmas time and would have been difficult to get rooms anywhere else 2 days before arrival.
***In short, please call the hotel and confirm your reservation right away when you book it online..!!***
