" Real piece of Heaven" and "The most relaxing time he has had in years" are the words my father used. Staff was courteous, friendly and eager to give us a laugh to make our time pleasureable. Rooms were kept clean and tended to with care by the housekeeping members. Groundskeepers kept the property clean and well groomed. They always...

Overall had a great time at Kuyaba. Everyone was friendly and the airport transfers they coordinated were lovely. Honestly we didn't spend a ton of time at the hotel - but it was a great home base. Centrally located on the beach, and near shops and mini marts on the main road. We had a cabin in the back with...

My husband and I ate here one night during our annual stay in Negril. We were staying at Legends Resort, which is directly next door, and wanted a change for dinner one night. This place is reasonably priced for what you will get on 7 Mile Beach at a restaurant like this. We both only had water....but we shared a...

If you don't need water after 11:00pm then no problem. If you're okay waiting for poor service then no problem. Towels and bedding are old. Room was reasonably clean The overall site is rustic, thatch roofing on bar and restaurant which is good for a tropical location. The hotel is fairly central so beach walks to the funky bars and...

We just returned from a wonderful five days at Kuyaba. As always, the food and drink were outstanding. We had a variety of different dishes and enjoyed all of them. I tend to lean more towards the local fare- they do a great jamaican Jerk chicken skewer, excellent curry conch, and very good fish. My boys have a less developed...

Spent a week with another couple. Good food, good staff. Great location. Bathrooms need updating and we were plagued with sand flea bites (found a spray to remedy them). We will not stay at this particular hotel again.

HI Tammy. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. It has been raining/wet a lot lately so I cannot remember if it was also doing this your exact dates. But, sandflies are located everywhere in Jamaica unfortunately--no matter where you go. They love to come out (invisibly) in the eve or after wet times. Loading yourself up...

A friend and I were looking for a spot on the beach close by to have some fish. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:30 PM, the atmosphere is stunning… Right on the beach beautiful bamboo structure. A busboy came to our table and told us that they were sold out of several items, two of them being seafood. Nonetheless...

Stewed Peas are made from kidney larger type beans cooked down. The Lentil Dip is made from lentil beans, onion, garlic, coconut milk. and curry. It is not...

Just returned home from 2 weeks at kuyaba, loved it. Rooms are just right, location is perfect, beach of course is exquisite. We had taken earplugs just in case, bourbon beach is right beside, but we never needed to use them. Maria and Rose always had the room perfect, and the gate guys were awesome! Beds are a bit firm,...

Kuyaba is a nice hotel. The grounds are clean and so are the rooms. The beds are very very hard and I had a hard time sleeping on them. The band from Bourbon Beach is so loud on Saturday nights that you can't sleep. We had a king room and the bathroom was great. Nice water pressure, but others in...
