“Little cottage in negril”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

Great for a weekend hide away , great for a private wedding. The Ocean view is great, I really can't find words to describe this place enough its beyond your imagination. The cottages symbolizes a different section of the world, I stayed in cottage #1 Oriental express. The owners also have the biggest nite club "JUNGLE" ..I will be back this summer

Best way to experience the island life for the first time! Be warned, it's definitely not a Sandals or Beaches. Which was fine for me because that wasn't what I wanted. For a real time get away from it all vacation, the Negril Escape is your best choice. Slow down, have a rum punch and enjoy the sunsets!

I love to travel and meet the local people, while having good qualitiy amenities, pool etc. I visit Jamaica regularly, where I used to live, many years ago. I recently stayed at Negril Escape, for the first time, as part of a yoga group, and was pleasantly surprised. Accommodation comprises Individual lodges, each with 4 separate rooms, all with spacious balconies, hammocks, facing the sea. The rooms were comfortable, lovely pool, landscaped gardens and ancient fossil filled rocks down to the sea. Snorkeling and diving, with instructors on site, for those that need it.

The restaurant serves mostly Jamaican style food but with great variety, each day different dishes at breakfast. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.

This is a Jamaican family run hotel on a good scale, near Rick's cafe and all the amenities of Negril and yet, it is often underoccupied, like many of the indlividual hotels. Why? because ... the airlines and tour companies now only promote the multinational, enormous all inclusive resorts. These discourage people from leaving the resort, exploring on their own, buying real goods and eating in the restaurants run by local people.

The underoccupancy means Escape, like many such hotels, can look a little shabby, compared to the newer gigantic resorts down the road, with huge Vegas style chandeliers and columns, but this traveller does not care!!

A UN survey last year, confirmed my impressions, that around 80% of the earnings of the all inclusives, was repatriated and the locals derive very little benefit.

So, next time, why not go on holiday independently, have a great time, meet the locals and make sure they benefit more directly from the money you spend?

Room Tip: Closer to the sea even better but all rooms have pleasant views and gardens around.

My wife and I just returned home from eight days in Negril. We have been visiting Jamaica and many other destinations in the Carribean since 1991 and have stayed in everything from 3 to 6 stars and We fell in love with the Negril Escape within minutes of arriving Feb 1. We felt very welcome by Felicia at the front desk and fell in love with Sygen our housekeeper right away. Any concerns we had were handled within minutes from a coffepot to refrigerator. Everyone on staff at the Escape were so very friendly that we didn't want to leave after only 8 days. The balcony views were spectacular as were the views from virtually any area on the resort. Great free breakfast , free shuttle service to the seven mile beach, great snorkeling, what else can we say!
Thank you David, Sygen, Felicia, Allan, Davis, Chin, great resturant staff and everyone We haven't named. You all made our stay very enjoyable. Can't wait to return.

My husband and I just returned from an enjoyable two-week stay at this hotel for the second year in a row. We totally agree with the four current February reviews from other guests as we have found that there are many advantages to staying at this resort:-
* location and the view are spectacular (amazing sunsets)
* very friendly and helpful managers and staff
* peaceful environment
* good breakfast included - offering nice fruit and a variety of tasty dishes each day.

The owners/managers are in the process of renovating and refurbishing each building and room. While we were there, the pool area was retiled and refreshing outdoor showers now adjoin the pool. We were told that to make sure guests will continue to have the use of the pool in the high season, the inside of the pool will be retiled in April.

So all in all, definitely good value offered by this hotel and we hope to return next year.
