info required about Negril, Jamaica

by liz09

I am planning a family holiday to Negril, Jamaica around the 27th May 09 with my husband and 2 sons aged 11 and 15.This holiday will be a dream come true for us all as my grandfather came from Jamaica so its makes it more special to us.
Could anyone tell us any info about the hotel which we'd like to stay at called clubhotel riu which is situated on bloody bay beach. We'd also appreciate any info about the weather at this time of year and how long we should stay for as we are not sure if we should stay for 2 or 3 weeks.
I look forward to receiving any info that anyone could give us!

I liked the Bloody Bay area, the hotels there are located on a secluded bay, unless things have changed, the beaches and hotels are secured by guards. Here are some reviews on the resort, look at them carefully as reviews vary based on people's expectations which accounts for the star ratings having such a wide range.

thanks to those who replied to my question. cud anyone also let me no if we need any vaccinations or not?

Re: info required about Negril, Jamaica

RE: vaccinations, when it comes to my health I prefer to consult with a travel clinic or at the very least check the CDC's website rather than rely on a bunch of strangers.

As Kristi has stated, don’t rely on forum information regarding your health whilst on holiday.
Always consult your own doctor or travel clinic.

Travel Tips for Negril

Jamaica's west coast

by goingsolo

Negril is located on the west coast of Jamaica approximately 55 miles from Montego Bay airport. The drive to Negril takes nearly two hours- depending on the speed with which your driver decides to navigate the not too well pave roads.

Recommended Products and Clothing

by jessiem

In addition to the obvious- sandals and light weight clothing, bring a pair of pants and shoes. Beach mites bite your legs at dusk when you walk on the beach, and this is one way to avoid the red marks. 1) Neutrogena Color-Boosting Facial Sunblock, 30 SPF
2) Hawaiian Tropic Oil-free, Sensitive Skin Sunscreen Spray, 50 SPF
3) Repel Insect Repellent: smells great, like perfume!

Ladies:
Perfume attracts mosquitos, don't bring it! Lotion, lip balm, facial creams and foundation is not necessary because of the moisture and heat in the air. You will wipe foundation off your face the minute you walk into the hot air.

Resort to Resort Trips

by tjbaldwin

You can walk along the beach from resort to resort. There are guards at each station where a resort begins on the beach, but if you simply tell them you are walking through along the beach they have to let you walk through.

Laid-back cliff top bar

by toonsarah about LTU Pub & Restaurant

We’d read a lot about, and didn’t fancy, the tourist trap atmosphere of Rick’s Bar, so when the Rough Guide recommended LTU as a good nearby alternative we decided to give it a try. I have to say that we had a very pleasant evening here, but it was nothing like Rick’s – this doesn’t appear to be the place to come to watch cliff diving, but if you want a chilled-out evening with great margaritas and tasty unpretentious food, you could do a lot worse! After watching the sunset from the bar, with a cold Red Stripe to accompany it, we moved to one of the cliff-side tables to eat. We shared a plate of stuffed jalapenos to start with, in addition to the complimentary pumpkin soup. For mains Chris chose the “Wiener Schnitzel”, which he enjoyed although it wasn’t quite like the schnitzels we’re used to in Austria, and I went for the jerk snapper fillets. The downside to this restaurant was that these mains came far too quickly, when we were still eating our starters, and on top of that mine wasn’t the snapper I’d ordered but chicken. However the waitress was very apologetic, and at least I got a break between courses while waiting for it to be replaced. When it came it was excellent. For dessert we shared the frozen key lime cheesecake – not as good as the one at the Hungry Lion but nevertheless pretty yummy. This meal, with a Red Stripe each, cost just US$47. We then stayed on for another drink at the bar (that great margarita!) and chatted a bit to some other customers who appeared to be regular visitors to Negril. We also enjoyed meeting the two resident cats, Pumpkin and (I think) Smokey.

Going to the Negril Lighthouse

by dustmon

This is a really fun thing to do that's pretty much free! The Lighthouse is on the westernmost point of Jamaica and has a large open area with a few shade trees that is made for a picnic lunch----It is only a short walk from Rick's Cafe and there are small groceries along the road where one can purchase fruits, cheese and bread, and drinks, and there are also roadside grills selling jerk chicken usually after noon....My friend Leroy sells his version next door to Tykes Bikes rental---1/4 bird with callaloo (a spinach like green) and rice/peas for about $7 US.
Mr. Johnson (I think that;s his name) is the caretaker of the Lighthouse and will take you up to the top (most days if he is there) for the view. Please tip him for this! There is a really old phone about half way up the stairs! There are also cannons among the grounds for picture opportunities.
