T-Water Beach is on Negril Beach. Try www.negril.com/beingee2.html for some further information. I used to correspond with people on CompuServe's Caribbean Travel forum, and there were a couple of folks that were regulars at T-Water. Nice spot, well priced, and I think included breakfast and lunch.

Last December of 1997 we stayed
7 days at the T-Water Beach
Hotel. It was just before the beginning
of the peak season (we were there
1 Dec thru 7 Dec 97). Breakfast
and lunch are included in the hotel
rate. The hotel is located directly
on a terrific, beautiful beach. In
some of the rooms, such as the one
we were in (standard room) it was
not in tip-top shape-- worn plumbing
fixtures, some leaking problems
whenever it rains. However, if you
go for the beachfront, ground level
rooms labeled superior or deluxe, you
will find those rooms have recently
undergone renovation and are very
nice. Each room has either a small
balcony or patio. The food served
is good, but not too much variety.
It is fun to walk down Negril Beach
and try out some of the restuarants
of the other hotels-- some are very
good-- Charela Inn, Legends have
excellent food. For the money, I
really kind of wished we stayed
elsewhere where there seems to be
more activities and a tour desk
to try some tours. T-Water Beach
Hotel at the time we were there had
no entertainment and a tour desk
that is either disinterested when
open, but most of the time no one
was there. However, you will
find entertainment at the other
hotels along Negril Beach which
were very good-- folkloric shows,
lots of reggae, limbo, fire-dancing.
Hotel Samsara has a good reputation
for outstanding entertainment-- we
didn't know about it until it was time
to go home. Along the beach,
accept all the flyers local Jamaicans
pass out-- those flyers give information on entertainment, menus
of local restuarants on the beach,
tours, and many offer coupons and
discounts for meals and entertainment
which helps plan your days and
evenings. Beachcomber Hotel,
next door to T-Water, offers fun
day and sunset sails. If you want a
budget hotel, T-Water probably will
be an ok choice- however, I think
you can do better with Beachcomber
Hotel, Charela Inn. Check with a
travel agent who has been in
Negril, Jamaica. When we walked
on the beach, we saw much nicer
hotels- Bar-B-Barn, Legends, Negril
Tree House Resort. The more
upscale resorts, also very nice, are
Hedonism II, Swept Away, Point
Village, Beaches, Sandals. Some
of those resorts are all-inclusive:
all meals, activities, watersports,
drinks are included in the rate.
I know this is long, but still I hope
this information helps. Signed Janice

Good info Janice. My husband and I stayed at Charela Inn a couple of years ago and loved it. They run around $120 per night now, I think. The staff was absolutely charming.

Bonnie,

I'd check out 2 web sites before making a choice on lodging. A previous post mentioned www.negril.com/beingee2.html . I heartily agree. This site has more Negril lodging information (with lots of pictures) than any other. T-Water is on it, as are about 20-30 other properties. Another is www.negriljamaica.com which has about 8 different properties listed. Not quite as many pictures, but still helpful.
