I have stayed at Banana Shout since Mark and Ilene owned it---Mark wrote the novel "Banana Shout" (available at amazon.com and other sites) about Negril's beginings from 1969 to 1972. A wonderful read for anyone who has been to Jamaica and loved it, especially those of us who have been coming for so long---
Mainly, Banana Shout has 2 great cottages right on the cliff's edge, one closer to the famous Rick's Cafe, which is right next door. This should definitely be taken into account, since RC is a lively place every day from 5 until 9 at night....
BS cottages have king size beds and ceiling fans.....porches with tables and chairs and hammocks for relaxing during the hot mid-day sun. Milo (Mee-lo) is the Man and can help you with anything. There is also a cave below, with a fresh water shower for when you get out of the ocean. This is all connected with concrete paths---much nicer than it sounds.....This used to be a Naturist friendly place, but not really now. Very open to Rick's Cafe.
There is a mini-grocery nearby for food and plenty of local restaurants close by for that really local experience----check out LTU Pub up the cliff about 2 minutes, and Leroy's chicken almost across the road from the Banana Shout gate. Oil -Can grilled chicken at it's best--he was interviewed on Travel TV by the Aussie guy---cant remember his name right now, but Leroy's chicken is real good, mon!
Unique Quality: Cave below, fresh water shower on cliff, cottage on cliff
Directions: next door to Ricks Cafe
