We just returned from a week at Idle Awhile at the beach. We had been to all inclusive resorts many, many times in Negril but this was the first time staying at a non-all inclusive. We picked Idle Awhile for it's location on 7 mile beach and for the great reviews on TripAdvisor.
We could not have been happier with the resort. We were in room 104 which has a direct line of sight to the beach, The only down side to this room is the foot traffic walking right outside from the head of your bed. Keep the ceiling fan running to drown out the noise and it isn't much of a problem. The room was very clean and the housekeepers did an amazing job! The entire staff was very friendly.
We had read other reviews complaining about the open shower concept getting the bathroom floor wet. Just tilt the shower head slightly toward the wall away from the rest of the bathroom and we never had a problem.
The only meal we ate at the resort was room service for breakfast and we only did this twice. The Chill Awhile prices seemed a little high and the bar drink prices were very high. We heard other bar patrons complain about the price increases at the bar since their previous visit. There are so many cheaper options for meals very close by that we didn't feel like we had to pay the higher prices at the resort.
Overall, it was a great trip at a great resort. The rooms were large and clean and the staff was wonderful. We will certainly be back to this resort in the future and would recommend it to anyone!
