“A perfect spot to relax and experience Jamaica the right way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2014 via mobile

Four italian friends coming from Florida randomly ended up in this cute little place with 4 indipendent sort of bungalows. We stayed in the biggest one. It had a nice bathroom, two queen beds and two single ones, a wonderful balcony with ocean view and a very comfy hammock. They had free wi-fi which I didn't really use much since the purpose of our little escape was to stay away from our phones and laptops and enjoy the peace and quite. If you're looking for a place that allows you to stay in the resort without venturing the outside that's the perfect place. The owner is an italian man, he's very cool and nice, you can ask him anything about Jamaica and he would know. During our stay there was a young girl cooking breakfast for us for just 10$ per person. everything was fresh and very tasty. If I'll ever go back to Jamaica that's where I'n going to stay. I recommend it to anyone, from friends, to couples and small families. You will love it!

Stayed November 2014, travelled with friends

We enjoyed Banana Shout. Milo & Laura were very nice, although we chose to mostly keep to ourselves as we were looking for quiet time together and everyone respected this fact just fine. There are 3 dogs on property, all friendly, and we loved hanging with Chili on the patio. The Red Rooster cottage was massive, having a beautiful view of the ocean from the second floor balcony, and I spent many hours relaxing and snoozing in the extremely comfortable hammock on the balcony. The property is secure, with a locked gate and security at night. The experience of staying here is somewhat "rustic", which was completely fine with us, but others should know there is no AC, no TV, no phone, etc. We did have Wi-Fi, and this worked well most of the time. The ocean breeze keeps things cool, but there are bugs, mosquitos, small lizards, etc. that will be in the rooms via small holes in the screens, etc. There are mosquito nets, and usually keeping a solid coat of spray on will avoid most bites from various bugs and such, and I'd recommend doing so before going to bed as well. Shampoo and conditioner can be bought cheaply at the mini-mart down the street. There are a few extremely good restaurants at walking distance nearby - Ras Roadys, Sharks, Ivan's etc., as well as mini-marts, and most of the others are a short taxi ride away (we never had a problem finding a ride). The vibe is very chill, and we spent hours laying on the chaise lounges on the cliffs staring at the stars at night. We also swam off of the cliffs, although this is not ideal some days when the water is rough. The grounds are gorgeous, with many beautiful blooming flowers. There are dogs that bark at night, the crashing of the waves against the cliffs are actually louder than you would think, and the roosters do start crowing around 3 or 4am, but we chalked it up to the local experience and a pair of ear plugs will do the trick if you are a light sleeper.This place is much more about the local experience than your typical all-inclusive, and is excellent as long as the vibe and experience are in line with what you are looking for in your stay in Negril. We would return.

Room Tip: All rooms will have an ocean view.

Milo & Laura were the most amazing hosts, took us all over the island to experience the real deal Jamaica. We will never stay at a "Walmart" hotel again & will only stay with them! Personal driver (Rounde), ocean front cabana & you can walk out the gate to get authentic food or visit Ricks next door. The outdoor shower doesn't suck either ;-)

I and my husband just spent a week at the Shout. We hadn't been here in several years and were amazed by all the artwork created since our last visit. The cottages are the best place to watch for dolphins - and we actually got to see them surface from our front porch! Milo makes his guests feel as though they are part of his family, and we admire his diligence in keeping up the property in the face of hard economic times all over. We truly felt at home there (and it didn't hurt that Chili, Mila, and Shy Boy, three of his dogs, occasionally came to keep us company, reminding us of our four-legged son waiting in Chicago). Thank you for a fabulous time, Milo dear, and we hope to see you again next year!

Room Tip: The Dolphin cottages are right on the ocean and make for great dolphin watching!

Gorgeous views. Love the cliffs and Dolphin view cabin. Me and my lady had an amazing 5 days there. Milo and Laura are super cool. Ras Rounds drove us everywhere and Chili was hangin with us on the patio. 1 night Milo made us pene pasta and a delicous mushroom and tomato appetizer. Good vibes, amazing food and the herbs...yesir, love Jamaica. 1 downside was a total lack of internet anywhere but by the office and even that lacked. To be fair though, we were there during a pretty rainy September full of thunder storms and both Milo and our masseuse, Tanya confirmed that heavy rains make the internet sketchy. I do believe that this can be improved becaue there were some places that we were at during thunderstorms where the internet worked fine so that is the only reason that I withhold a star.

Room Tip: Both Dolphin cabins are phenomenal but there are really no bad views from any of the cabins they all...
