Historical Traveller Reviews of Country Country Beach Cottages Hotel
Country Countryfrom G-mony
Based on reviews from this site, i booked a premium room at Country Country Negril, and it was a great decision. The hotel's management and staff is excellent, their chef is wonderful, and the property is amazing. The setting is not typical of a five star hotel only because you get a cottage all to yourself in a beautiful landscape to make you feel you're in the middle of the country side with a beach right at your door step. The only problem were the mosquitos, which i took care of on the next night with a big can of insect killer.
The Setting, beach vs cliffs:
The beach is very clean and the water is pristine. The only "problem" was that i got annoyed by all the hustlers the first two days, but then i realized if i just shake my head and say " all cool mun, i got it all" then they back off. The persistent ones cost me 100 Jamaican Dollars to get rid of, approximately USD $1.8
After visiting the cliffs, i fell in love with them. Check out The Rockhouse hotel. It is lovely there.
Jamaicans are very friendly people. They depend heavily on tourists in Negril. Locals pay 100 Jamaican dollars for cab rides, and the tourists are charged 300 jamacian dollars. Yet, our income is probably 10x more, so it's still a bargain. I even give the nice ones a tip.
If you need anything, make sure you ask the staff at your hotel. The bartender, the housekeeper, the bell boy..... these are the ones that will really take care of you.
Make sure you tour other sites outside of negril, such as the water falls, the country side, the rum factory, etc....
I'm defintily gonig back, and next time it will be for 2 weeks.

Charming placefrom murraba
We found the staff at Country Country friendly, helpful, and honest (the latter quality is not exactly universal in Jamaica). They helped us locate a skillful and loquacious driver, Roy Ruddock, who carried us about the island for a full day at a very reasonable rate. Besides seeing the Black River and YS Falls, Roy gave us a good look at the "real" Jamaica away from the tourist areas. We even stopped to buy coconuts, and the woman selling the coconuts whopped off the tops with a machete so we could drink the coconut "water." He answered all of our questions; it was quite an educational experience.
Just a few doors down from Country Country is Norma's, one of the best restaurants on the island and not terribly pricy. Country Country's own restaurant is good, but the fare is limited. Though Country Country only has a small stretch of beach (they are in the process of expansion), it is nice for sunning and swimming. When the surf is low, you can see a natural aquarium of tropical fish in the water. The hotel security guard offered valuable protection from beggars, ganja sellers, and other potentially dangerous persons. We had no trouble making limited excursions along the beach at night.
In short, Country Country is a charming hotel in the center of Negril's Seven-Mile Beach. It will be our home on our next trip to Negril.
Best hotel in the localityfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We (myself and girlfriend both under 30) stayed in a standard room and bar the mosquitoes at night (buy plenty of mozzie repellent) found the accomodation very sweet, colourful and tidy with an enormous bed & satellite TV.
The breakfasts were good, the beach area belonging to the hotel is quite small but there's seven miles of beach to explore so this should not be an issue.
Staff are generally cool.
Enjoy Italian food with fresh, local seafood? Go to Gino's which is about 10 mins walk south. Norma's, round the corner is good, too. The absolutely must visit restaurant is the Rock House which should cost around $6-8 in a taxi to get back from with free pick up. Comparable prices but with food & service of a much higher standard to local eateries. Rock House has stunning scenery, is perched on top of a cliff with visible submerged caves, makes a great change to the beach restaurants.
Great little placefrom AKJCleveland
Surprises: Country Country's beach is quite small, but that hardly mattered as there is the long beach to explore. Negril has gotten very commercial, and it is noisy at night...something to consider during Spring Break season.
All of the hotel staff were very gracious and accomodating. Since the hotel is so small, you definitely feel known and cared for. There are plans to expand the hotel (acquiring property next door)...therefore I will inquire about possible construction next time.
Kudos to staff members Lee, Stacey, Andre, Sherry and others who made our vacation in Negril so relaxing.
We checked out the whole beach area before we moved down there, going into several and looking at accommodation. This one looked the most comfortable and relaxed, we deliberately excluded the massive all inclusives)and it was. It has just been bought by COYABA from Montego Bay, who are members of Leading Hotels of the World and Country Country is due to be expanded and upgraded. The staff say it will just be better, not different, and if that is really the case then it will be brilliant.
what a wonderful place!from A TripAdvisor Member
Country Country is a quaint, small, personal place. Our cottage was the closest to the beach, what we thought was the best one. We awoke every morning, slipped on some clothes, and walked to the restaurant for a wonderful cooked to order breakfast on the ocean. It doesn't get any better than that. The maid service was great, all of the employees were the best. The guard on the beach kept away the peddlers trying to sell things which was nice. Just a few steps away on the beach was Margaritaville where we spent alot of time. A great place for kids, with a playground, beach chairs, and Jimmy Buffett playing day and night. We highly recommend Country Country to anyone who wants to experience the true feel of Jamaica and meet lots of wonderful natives who are very accomodating and friendly. The trip to Mayfield Falls was great, with a personal tour guide to help us along. We also rented wave runners and the kids, ages 5 and 8 had a ball! Thank you Country Country for making our family vacation a happy and memorable one!
Charming,delightful,perfectfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The food was great and the bar/restaurant on the beach was lovely.We walked the beach everyday from end to end but were always happy to return to our chairs and the beach at Country Country. Lee set us up with towels and cold coconut milk and watched over us. He and the other staff are a big reason I would go back in a heart beat. They were eager to help and answered all our questions and needs with the warmest smiles.
We were sad to leave and determined to return.
