Overview of Negril

Negril, Jamaica is home to one of Riu’s most luxurious hotels – Riu Palace Tropical Bay. The palace title isn’t far off the mark at all. The elegant white buildings are gently placed against the picturesque shoreline of the Caribbean Sea, filling the entire resort with a tranquil, tropical atmosphere. Based on the “Bloody Bay Beach”, the pirate past here has transformed into an area of complete peace although there is plenty of lively excitement to be found in Negril. Riu Palace Tropical Bay offers guests an abundance of leisure activities with many points of interest just a short journey away.

Things to do in Negril

From the iconic steel drums to reggae, finding music is a must on any holiday to Jamaica. Thankfully at Riu Palace Tropical Bay, this is made easy with the bars and DJ nights of Negril just a short distance away. Negril is also a great spot for shopping at the Times Square Mall. For more traditional shopping and souvenirs, hit the Norman Manley Boulevard and make sure to try out the traditional jerk-style food at a street stand! For younger guests, discover Kool Runnings Water Park or even explore the Royal Palm Reserve.

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.
