My wife and I just returned from a five day stay at The Spa Retreat. As we often do, we found the resort from Trip Advisor. And with most recommendations, it was right on! After being picked up by the resort arranged driver, we arrived and were greeted by the most pleasant and efficient, Heather. After a short tour of the resort and services, we were shown our beautiful suite. We stayed in the Bridal Suite. Roomy, it had everything we needed. Including the NFL on satellite! As beautiful as the resort is, the staff makes it. The wonderful owners, Christine and Shane are on site and always there for you. We soon learned most of the staff by name. They give you a cell phone so you just ring for whatever you need, where ever you are. The food is fantastic and Kevin, the chef, who you will learn is known by people all over Negril as "The Best". We even had Kevin prepare a surprise menu and were served on our private balcony by candlelight. So nice! Christine's background is service and it rings through. My wife enjoyed numerous services from the Spa and enjoyed every one. Needless to say, we highly recommend the resort and we'll be going back!

Room Tip: We loved the privacy of the Bridal Suite and next time we might try one of the Seaside Suites directly in front of the pool.

Thanks for your review! We’re so glad you enjoyed our exclusive Retreat Suite for your accommodations during this visit, and have no doubt you’re also love the Seaside Handcrafted Stone Cottages on your next visit as well. Your kind mention of Heather, Christine and Shane’s great service is much appreciated and of course the note of “fantastic” creations by our Exec. Chef Kevin. He is "The Best"! Until next time…One Love.

Only having seen the photos, we were blown away when we entered through the gates of this incredible resort. Our choice in wedding venue was quickly solidified as we walked through the property to see the most breathtaking views in Negril.
We had a total of 38 guests travelling with us and with the help from all the wonderful Spa staff we were able to have a fun, relaxed and intimate night with our closest friends and family.
From the moment we woke up on the day of the wedding everything was taken care of for us.
It was surprisingly one of the most relaxing and stress free days of our vacation.
We were able to enjoy pre-ceremony massages and get ready with tropical drinks in hand.
The Spa staff arranged and organized everything for us – ceremony, dj, flowers, hair and makeup, even a steel drum band who played during the cocktail hour following the reception.
Dinner was served outdoors under the twinkling lights by the sea.
It was by far the best part of our evening.
The five course meal was incredible. From the jerk pork ravioli served in a coconut, to the main dish of curried chicken roulade and coconut crusted tenderloin the whole thing was absolutely outstanding. Chef Broderick even made us our favorite red velvet cake, to which our guests are still raving about.
In fact, every meal we had during our stay at the Spa was beyond expectation – we are excited to go back and indulge again soon. The Blue Mahoe restaurant is a MUST if you are in Negril.
The rest of our evening was filled with singing, dancing and lots of laughs.
It was a dream come true.
You will definitely be well taken care of at this beautiful resort.
Special thanks to each and every staff member who went out of there way for us and our guests and of course thank you to Christine and Shane – you are both amazing!
THANKS AGAIN.

My boyfriend and I spent two days at the SPA Retreat for our friends Wedding, it is so beautiful there! Being on the West Side of Jamaica, the sun sets are truly mesmerizing! I enjoyed swimming in the ocean as well as the salt water pool that overlooks the ocean, it was so peaceful. The staff are very friendly and always smiling! The rooms are clean and private, which just adds to the tranquil environment this beautiful Island has. The food is amazing, everything fresh and plated beautifully! We would go back in a heartbeat!
