Click here for the best places to stay in Negril

Negril's famous seven mile stretch of white, sandy beach is perfectly contrasted by the next seven miles of sheer forty foot cliffs. Spectacularly beautiful, Negril is a great place to come to enjoy yourself. It's more laid-back than Montego Bay, and livelier than Ocho Rios. And most of the best places to stay in Negril are either right on the beach, or right on the cliffs.

You have probably never seen the ocean as clear as it is about Negril, as it gradually, gradually draws you in, down gentle soft, white, sandy slopes. You've also possibly never felt an ocean as invitingly warm. Even though Negril is popular with visitors, it's still possible to find your very own slice of sand - try the top end of Seven Mile Beach, where there are no hotels.

It's about an hours walk from the far end of Seven Mile Beach, where you'll find many of the all-inclusive properties, into town, via the tourist and craft markets.

Negril is noisy at night, but in a fun, reggae way.

Our pick of the best places to stay in Negril range from the fantastic value Catcha Falling Star to the stunning five star Caves, with plenty in between to satisfy all tastes and budgets.

Best Places to Stay in Negril

For classic Negril

  • Country Country, right on Seven Mile Beach, is a collection of colourful cottages with a classic beach holiday feel. There's a great atmosphere and a simple, but good value restaurant.
  • Idle Awhile is a nautique-chic hotel giving onto the beach with a great beach bar and decent restaurant. It's only got 14 rooms so is a lot quieter than some of its neighbours along Seven Mile Beach.

For a special occasion

  • The Caves, just outside Negril atop the cliffs, is a beautiful, grown up five star hotel with private cottages and ladder access to the sea. Possibly the perfect spot for a Caribbean honeymoon.
  • If you're looking for something a bit different try Sunset at the Palms, an elegant treehouse hotel. Lush and secluded there are three restaurants and bars, serving fantastic regional and international delicacies.
  • Rockhouse is a collection of thatched, stone cottages with muslin-draped four poster beds and outdoor showers. It's surrounded by tropical gardens on all sides but the ocean, so you feel secluded. There's also a great spa.
  • If you want all-inclusive, try Sweptaway, which is a large, but peaceful, and adults only, beach front resort with a choice of six restaurants and an award winning spa.

For great value

  • Catcha Falling Star is a stylishly rustic, cliff top collection of charming thatched cottages. Here you'll find outdoor showers, bougainvillea filled gardens and terraces overlooking the sea. Some cottages have their own kitchens too, and rooms start from as little as £52 per night. They don't allow children.
  • Another laid-back, cliff top hotel, the Tensing Pen offers secluded cottages - some with their own ladders directly into the sea. They're big on yoga and spa treatments, and there's the echo of reggae music heard throughout.
