More about Charela Inn

Hard to pick just one - Here are THREE

by Radiomom

On the beach -- and the only place I'd EVER recommend taking a meal plan -- The Charela Inn.

At a lower price is the snug, very personal and family run Whistling Bird. We stayed there four nights this past trip and enjoyed the luxury of having our meals prepared by the chef in his little kitchen/dining pavillion on the basis of daily request. The grounds are amazing, the cottages simple and basic, and the bartender makes the best drinks from scratch you'll ever taste.

On the cliffs, we stayed at Rockhouse (pictured here)and it is a winner, a totally different vacation. Climb down a ladder in front of your thatched roof octagonal room (with four poster bed, ceiling fan, and open to the sky ceramic shower) to a lagoon with great snorkeling.
Per night at Whistling Bird was about $100
Charela Inn and Rockhouse are more like $130
Those are off-season prices, however. Everyone seems to deal to some extent -- with/without meal plans, 4 nights for 3, a percent off for returning guests. Negril is a bargain compared to many places we've been in the Caribbean. Charela has the best restaurant on the island, Rockhouse is probably the next best in Negril. Whistling Bird has a private chef -- he makes incredible breakfasts, and his dinners are fine, too. Charela and Rockhouse have pools -- for you pool people. But the sea is the sea is the wonderful sea. You can snorkle right from the cliffs at Rockhouse. You'll have to arrange a trip to the reef for snorkeling when you stay on that exquisite beach. Charela has a free yacht tour at sunset once a week.

Charela Inn on the beach has...

by Radiomom about French Caribbean Cuisine at its Best

Charela Inn on the beach has absolutely the best food on the island. The owner is a Frenchman, with a Jamaican wife and their menu is always just right. We didn't stay here this last trip, but ate there three (or was it four?) nights anyway. Have the three-course special of the night. You can't miss. And the service is unmatched. The staff has been there for years and obviously enjoy their jobs.
They have a wine cellar! And very nice choices that won't break your budget. Negril has very lovely sunsets, too. Anything 'coconut rundown'
King fish, Snapper, chicken...we're usually there out of season for lobster, but who cares when there are so many wonderful options. The price range I picked at least 3 courses and a bottle of wine.

Taxi cost

by janineH

How much is a taxi to travel a couple of miles ?

Re: Taxi cost

by NegrilPirate

The Red Plate Taxi costs $50.00 JMD to go a long way. I can go from the center of town to almost Hedo for $50 j. Each. Less than a buck Canadian or USD. The Red Plate on the Taxi is an offical registered taxi. Insured and all. No rain today, been a wet 45 days.

Travel Tips for Negril

Vegetarian Paradise

by dustmon about Hungry Lion

Not being right on the ocean hurts Hungry Lion a bit, but you can't beat it for vegetarian cuisine and fresh seafood. There is also a small art gallery with local pieces for sale on the bottom floor. Upstairs is the restaurant, and so long as the fans are working, you should have a wonderful meal. Pan fried Snapper with cho-cho and rice & peas.

Calico Snorkeling cruise

by dlvredsquirrel

What a time we had! Because it was off season, we were the only 2 people on the ship--essentially a private cruise. Went out in to open water, snorkeled the Montego Bay Marine park, went to Dr. Cave Beach, Mo Bay Margaritaville, and then back to the pier. The three staff members were very nice and great fun to talk to. VERY high quality snorkel equipment and a snorkel guide goes into the water with you. The ship is the one they used in the movie Treasure Island--way cool! Open bar didnt hurt, either. ha ha ha

Gotta go horse back riding 3!

by tpangelinan

As the ride continues start going into the Rainforest, take out your cameras, there are so many types of tree and much more. The bamboo in this photo was as big a round as my arm, OHM! The horses are very well trained and the guides are right there if there is an issue. There is 1 guide per couple, they will take your camera a take photos of you and bring it back at every cool points on the trip.
