Outstanding location right in the heart of seven mile beach with great access to all the beach has to offer but at the same time a peaceful little hideaway.
Rooms are neat and perfectly functional, lovely big beds with good mattress. Staff are helpful and attentive without being pushy, made some great recommendations for local dining and trips. On site restaurant and bar is great quality if a little pricier than some of the options nearby. Directly opposite on the road side is the BEST IN THE WEST which is great for local food and jerk in particular and does a killer rum punch. The beach vendors will walk by with food from 11am onwards, a great alternative if you are on a budget. The patties and jerk pork in particular are delicious. Do not miss TONYS HUT beachside bar with a most congenial hostess in Princess Grace. Just five minutes walk along the beach towards the west end.
Whilst difficult to fault, for the purists here is some advice to manage expectations :
WARNING : for light sleepers ear plugs are recommended on account of the tree frogs which chirp away loudly from dusk until dawn and are heard in the rooms as the window panels are not glazed but have fly netting instead.
The upper floor ocean view room was lovely although did not strictly have an ocean view due to the dense foliage of the surrounding trees.
All in all I would highly recommend this place.

Beyond all expectations, beautiful natural setting , and that's before you get to the beach. Impeccable rooms, clean and fresh, open air rooms fitting for the cool Negril breeze. But the best part about Idle Awhile is the people!! Attentive to details, and above and beyond approach to guests needs. Trust me , travel the world but if in Jamaica make the scenic ride along the coast and rejuvenate and relax at Idle Awhile. Thanks for the vibes.

My wife and I with our son and his fiancee recently spent a short break at Idle Awhile. What a superb choice. We had a suite which was enormous. Bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen and terrace. A short walk took us to the bar/restaurant and the beach. A good menu and drinks.

We loved our room, right up front on the 2nd floor. It had a vintage island vibe, with a huge patio, Master BR, Living area that included a daybed type lounger, as well as a full kitchen. It was more space than my husband and I needed, which proved to be a boon on the one rainy afternoon we spent there lounging around on the patio (with hammock). The staff was friendly, the food delicious and reasonable and the location was in the middle of beautiful 7 mile beach. I would stay here again and recommend it to other travelers.

Room Tip: Top floor front room had vaulted ceilings and a view of the ocean through the palms.
