Resort Summary

Negril’s white sand backdrop and palm tree fringe is unique, to say the least. Unique, peaceful and pretty much as gorgeous as it gets. And in spite of its appeal among families looking for cheap holidays to Jamaica, this little resort has somehow managed to retain its low key charm.

The show-stopping Seven Mile Beach is found in Negril, and that’s only the beginning where gorgeous scenery is concerned. Restaurants are nestled up along the cliffs carved into the waterfront, bars are suspended above the sea and the most energy you’ll expend is snorkelling past a coral reef. Even the hotels are postcard-worthy.
