Famous for the white sand of Seven Mile Beach, sheer sea cliffs and blazing sunsets, Negril has been a beacon to holidaymakers since the 1970s. As such, there’s a bounty of places to stay in, from hotel rooms with private plunge pool to resorts with water slides and lazy rivers and affordable options that nuzzle onto the famous beach. Here’s our pick of the best, bookable with Culture Trip.

The Cliff Hotel, Negril Harbour

4.8/5 (121 Reviews)

From $338 per night per room
As the name suggests, this suite and villa hotel sits atop a rocky cliff which, as it’s only six feet high, you can jump off into the Caribbean Sea, under a lifeguard’s watchful eye. If you don’t fancy this, you can climb down to the sea via a sturdy ladder. For the less adventurous, there’s an outdoor pool with a swim-up bar, or watch the action over fish tacos in breadfruit shells from the Zest Restaurant terrace.

There’s a retro look to this Seven Mile Beach boutique hotel. The design has been inspired by the bohemian beach scene of the ‘60s and ‘70s, with elements like black-and-white floor tiles, colourful plastic seating, kitschy wallpaper, woven rugs and psychedelic artwork tastefully dotted all over. With its diner-style booths and bright colours, Miss Lilly’s restaurant has a vintage feel, too. Don’t leave without trying the homemade coco bread – it’s served with jerk chicken sandwiches.

Beaches Negril Resort
