Leave your cares behind and dive into calm, protected Caribbean waters rich with remarkable coral reefs and interesting marine life. Frolic in the pale aqua and teal waves lapping against the SEVEN-MILE BEACH. If golf is your game, improve your swing at the 18-hole, par 72 course at NEGRIL HILLS GOLF CLUB. As soon as the sun goes down, the nightlife heats up until the wee hours of the morning. Take a sunset sail to RICK'S CAFE, named ONE OF THE TEN BEST BARS IN THE WORLD by Caribbean Travel & Life magazine. Dance to the sounds of live music pulsating on the beach at DEBUSS & ROOTS BAMBOO. Get wild and sexy at THE JUNGLE nightclub in the heart of NEGRIL, popular for its energetic atmosphere. Negril is one of life's rare pleasures and the ultimate freedom vacation. If you want a place to get away from it all, in an atmosphere of sand, sea and fun, this is the place for you. Kick off your shoes and shrug off your blues. Eat and drink, love and laugh, play, party and be happy in Jamaica's "Capital Of Casual".

Recent Guest Reviews

WE FOUND A GREAT AND ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HOTEL ON THE BEACH: MERRILL'S II BEACH  RESORT. It  was  absolutely  gorgeous. We had oceanfront rooms that  allowed  one  to  see  exquisite  views  of  the  ocean from the verandah.  The  resort  was  fairly  new about 6 months old. The rooms were  beautifully  decorated in a floral print. Each room had it's own living  room  and  a sectioned-off bedroom. The staff was very helpful and  courteous.  The  only bad thing about the resort was the food. It wasn't worth $30 a day for all-inclusive. There  are some great places to eat a long the beach. I would strongly recommend  Kuyaba.  The red snapper is great and also try the Jamaican chicken.  The  night  life was great. The people there are so nice and very  well spoken. My boyfriend and I fell in love with Negril. Afterwards was truly "no problem!" Go to Jamaica and relax!
MERRILL'S II IS A DELIGHTFUL LITTLE RESORT. It allows you to get in touch with the real Jamaica. It is somewhat more modest than the larger resorts and when we drove up I felt a little disappointed . We came in a tourist van from the airport which had been stopping at some fairly posh hotels. That feeling quickly changed as soon as we checked in and started to explore the grounds. The grounds and the beach are beautiful. The rooms are large and comfortable and all have patios or balconies overlooking the gardens. Merrill's has a very personal, intimate atmosphere which allows you to get to know the staff and guests. The staff is wonderful. They are always working very hard to make sure you are well taken care of. Some reviews critiqued the quality of the food. I have been the"guest" of a Boston newspaper food critic so I have some comparative experience. I thought the food quality was excellent! Every meal featured fresh fruits and vegetables, there are three separate dining areas to select from, and each one is serving something different. Amongst the main courses, there was always seafood and authentic Jamaican regional cuisine to select from. The fresh fruit blenders were superb.The majority of the guests seem to be European and in my opinion that made things a lot more fun. I enjoyed things so well, in fact, that I am paying nearly double to go back for this Christmas/New Years!

MERRILL'S II IS AN ABSOLUTE DELIGHT: BEAUTIFUL, SERENE GROUNDS. Friendly and helpful service. Food was always flavorful. Beach was clean. Nice sized rooms. Beds were firm. Large fluffy bath towels. Pool was clean and cool (nice cool down after baking in the sun). Great Location. Perfect in every way. We can't think of anything to complain about!!!! We will come back again!

THIS WAS MY FIRST TRIP TO JAMAICA (AUGUST 7 - 14 2003) BUT IT WILL NOT BE MY LAST. If you're looking for information about Jamaica in general, here's a little advice: (1) There's no need to exchange your US currency. Everyone in Jamaica is trying to sell something (usually for "20 American dollars"), so I wouldn't bring anything larger than a twenty. And never pay the asking price for anything, Jamaicans are always willing to negotiate. (2)

BRING YOUR BUG REPELLANT!! I had so many mosquito bites my legs looked like I had chicken pox. A can of OFF is a must. They sell it at the gift shop, but it's cheaper if you but it in the states. (3) Bring along a few extra dollars for tipping. Although your travel agent will tell you that tips are including, some people are so attentive that you might want to give them a little something extra. (4) If you want to sit out on the beach, get out there early or all of the beach chairs will be gone. The front desk will supply you with beach towels. Most people used their towels to claim their chairs before breakfast.I (along with two friends) stayed at the Merrill's II Beach Resort. If you're on a budget (like me) and you want to get the best value for your money, this is the perfect place to stay. The staff is excellent! The grounds are will kept and beautiful. Each room has a porch with a table and chairs. My room had a TV, telephone, and air conditioning (another reviewer stated that most of the rooms as at this resort doesn't have a TV or telephone). While we were there we did two excursions, horseback riding and YS Falls. I had never been on a horse before, but the guides were more than helpful and I had a great time. We rode for two miles to the ocean and then swam with the horses in the ocean. I didn't think swimming with a horse sounded like the most interesting thing to do (especially since I can't swim), but it was a lot of fun. We also went to YS Falls. This excursion included lunch, which was excellent. The guides will carry your camera and take pictures of you and your friends without the falls. It's well worth the money.I had such a great time in Jamaica I'm going again in December 2003 to bring in the new year!!

MY WIFE AND I JUST GOT BACK FROM MERRILS II. This was our second stay there and I must say it's as great as the first time. The room was a little noisy this time, due to a clicking A/C and for some reason the lid on the toilet wouldn't stay up, but other than that it was wonderful. The staff, aside from the front desk are wonderful...Maurice and Patrick at the bar are always going the extra mile to earn your "Respect". The beach peddlers remembered us by name and one of them still held a business card that I had given them 2 years ago. We love Negril and wouldn't stay anywhere else on the island. If you have any questions about Negril, or specifically Merrill's, feel free to drop me a line. It's reasonable and the food is good. I would make one suggestion though; they should have someone on the beach taking drink orders, Ya Mon!
