Best Hotels in Negril

My family is traveling to Negril in August, our ages are 17, 20, 23 and "young" 50's. Any suggestions on resorts/hotels that are near or on beaches/cliffs, and fun for our age group?
Kids are night owls....

What kind of place are you looking for?

There's lots of larger resort-type properties down on the beach, some AI, some not. Or up on the "Cliffs" there are very cool but more rustic places to stay, like Rockhouse, Tensing Pen, Citronella, Catcha Falling Star.

Which resort do you suggest on the cliffs? Is it a good location for a weeks stay or should we stay a few days and switch to another location?

There aren't any big "resorts" on the Cliffs of Negril. It's mostly smaller laid back properties with cottages and cabins. Some people love the "beach" best, I like the Cliffs. I'm no expert but am going for 10 days next month staying at the Cliffs the entire time.

Nothing specific about Negril but for me personally, no, I wouldn't want to have to pack up and switch hotels in the middle of a relaxing tropical vacation, just to move to the other side of a small town. It's easy enough to take taxis and shuttles between the Beach & the Cliffs area regardless which you pick to stay.

All the places I mentioned have websites you can see what they're all about. has a good Negril forum as is

I'll offer up the "beach" view as it is my preference. Depending on your budget (and try to go non-AI) there are many places up and down the beach. Moondance Villas is a unique experience if you have the $$. Otherwise, CocoLaPalm, Idle Awhile and Rondel Village are my favorite three hotels on the beach. You can walk pretty much everywhere from all three places. Great beach, especially CLP and IA. Cabs are cheap for a trip to the cliffs if you so incline. Most trips I rarely venture from the beach, however.

It seems to me there are "beach" people and there are "cliffs" people and never the twain shall meet!

Depending on your sleep habits, Kuyaba, Bar-b-Barn and other beach properties closer to town might fit the bill. They are close to the nightlife but with that comes the sound of Reggae til 1 or so on concert nights at Alfreds and Bourbon Beach. Let the people on this forum know your budget and you will get some better ideas.

I am thinking of a trip to Negril in mid to late September. What is a nice, quiet hotel on the beach for a solo traveler?

for Travelling~ have a look at Charela Inn. It's not a resort just a nice hotel. I really liked the atmosphere and location. I visited for a 1/2 day on the beach last month, because it is the sister hotel to where I was on the cliffs at the Mirage.
