Historical Traveller Reviews of The Palms Resort Hotel

This place is sooo cool!!

from Bazaloner
Me and two friends stayed at The Palms at the end of July and we absolutely loved the place.
It cannot be better located in Negril.If we were any closer to the beach we would have been in the sea!!.
Whilst minor renovations are still going on, the property is so charming and beautiful it really doesn't matter.
The staff are fantastic and friendly. Big shout for Shannon, Mike Leroy, O;neil all every one else.
We could not have been made to feel more welcomed by the owners John and Cassandra.
We even got to concoct our own drink at the brilliant beach side bar!. When you go there ask Shannon or one of the other guys for LB rum and Ting.Now known in our neck of the woods as " Turn you Fool".

We loved The Negril palms Resort

from kwonderboy
The Palms Negril Resort was recommended to me by a colleague on my Job, she had her honeymoon there in April.
She raved about the food there (and the experience she and her new husband had there.So i took the girlfriend and
off we went to a place I never heard of in June and it was well worth the trip. I Do plan to return there maybe next year.
Thanks Palms Negril for a perfect time and experience. You really treated us well and you made my girlfriend happy. I love you for that

Gosh!!! Where do I start - We, (my teenage son, neice and nephew travelled to Jamaica on 25th May 2008 due to a family member who was very unwell. We had a very exhausting and tiring 8 days, therefore for the rest of our vacation we wanted a comfortable, relaxing 'me' time to finish off with. I was told about The Palms in Negril. Wow!!! Upon arriving at the resort, it clearly stood out from the other hotels - as QUALITY. The reception staff was very helpful once we had arrived, he made us very comfortable, showed us around the resort, and he arranged a meal for us. Well, it was not what I was expecting, the food was fantastic- A-La-Carte, the chef and the staff couldnt do more for us. It was beautiful sitting by the beach on a lovely resort eating excellent food. Bear in mind we havent even seen the rooms yet. This I was not expecting, the rooms were amazing, very clean, very modern and luxurious. The rooms are double rooms , however they are so big, that the receptionist staff arranged for another Queen size bed to be put in both our rooms, it was now a twin room,you would never guess the difference. The resort is beautifully lined with Palm Trees, and other tropical plants, you can smell the tropical wood that is part of the decor. Mr Nelson who designed the resort is also the owner, a very nice, softly spoken gentleman. He was so helpful, we didnt want to leave. We booked for 5 nights half board, and this included breakfast, lunch and dinner with a drink with each meal. Drinks during the day is paid for separately. Every day was amazing, the bar staff, the chef, the waiters, everybody was wonderful, There is soft reggae music in the back ground, and the resort is right on the beach front. You are close to water activities, so my son and nephew had a ball jet sking and participating in the water sports.
The Resort does offer all-inclusive if preferable, it is worth it. It has just been re-vamped from a run down hotel, and the result is out of this world. There is still a little construction going on, but you would never guess it.
This is my second visit to Negril, and I stayed at Rondel Village that is room only, but if you are looking for full/half board or all-inclusive this is the one for you. The Resort also offers room only if so wish. Ask whether I will go back again? Not questionable. Go and see for yourself you will not be disappointed.

Nice hotel

from Rubiru
This beach and sea has got to be one of the best in the world, so really the hotel room is not too important as you will want to be outside anyway.
The hotel is currently under renovation and is due to be completed around Nov time. We were not aware of this at the time of the booking so the rooms had no light fittings, no curtains, no safe (but they installed one for us), and most importantly for my husband, no Mossy nets!. All this said though the rooms are being decorated very nicely, modern and rustic. First impressions of the hotel are not that great but once we setttled in it was just fine and i think this place will be fab once it is completed.
The section of the hotel which is on the beach is beautiful, nice bar, restaurant and pool. They are working very hard to make this hotel and success, not quite boutique as discribed on the website, but still very nice. If we go to Negril again I think we would be happy to stay here, good value for money, clean, welcoming, always in Negril, we never want to leave.

We loved it!

from BrittManhattan_NY
Myself and 5 of my girlfriends went to Negril at the end of April and stayed at the Palms Negril. This place is great! First things first...the staff is amazing! They were extremely friendly and tons of fun! The hotel was still being renovatated and yet we barely knew anything was going on. Between the beautiful beach front and the international restaurant, Kristyl's, you won't want to leave the resort. The rooms are so cute and very clean. We just got back and we're already planning our return trip.!!

Relaxing and beautiful

from funromanticgetaway
My husband and I spent an amazing 6 nights here. We were greeted with 2 glasses of fresh cold juice when we arrived to check-in. The hotel is refreshing. The rooms are clean and everything feels new. The bar and restaurant on the beach serve great drinks and food. We enjoyed sitting at the bar and also in the highest level of the restaurant, where you feel a great breeze and view of the crystal clear water. It's magical! The sand on the beach is so fine, and the water so clear and calm. We walked for miles on the beach, and think that the sand where the hotel is located, is the finest of all of Negril. Take your snorkeling gear to use on the beach and the cliffs. We saw a large starfish near the hotel. We spent the early part of our days at the beach, afternoons on the cliffs, and nightlife on the beach. The cliffs offer amazing sunset views and snorkling options. We had previously stayed in a beautiful boutique hotel on the cliffs and loved it. However, we enjoyed our stay on the beach more. The Palms Resort is in a great location. We took calming, romantic strolls on the beach at night. We highly recommend, don't miss out on the true breathe of fresh air that you will feel when you arrive.

We Loved the Plams Resort !

from davidpix

AND THE FOOD WAS TO DYE FOR. We enjoyed our room

The staff made you feel so welcome, Our stay at the Palms Resort was much more than we expected. I would recomend that The Plams Resort is the Only Hotel where you should stay

Loved this Resort!

from dkey
We booked this resort once we arrived in Negril and were sadly disappointed at another resort. The Palms came recommended by 2 locals and we found out it was recently purchased and being renovated by the new owners.

We were not disappointed. Although still in renovations (May, 2008), it did not interrupt our vacation of 7 days. The room was great! It had a modern feel, but felt very local to the area. It is a small resort, but we very much liked that. We truly felt we were the only 2 persons there!

We tried many restaurants on the beach and in town, and the one at the hotel had the best food of all the ones we tried. The chef is amazing and the prices are very reasonable.

The best aspect about the resort was the staff. From the bartenders (Leroy) and wait staff (Shannon) to the Managers (Garth), to the owners, everyone made you feel very welcome and would accommodate anything you needed. They were extremely friendly and welcoming.

If you are looking for a great experience in Negril, this is the resort.

the palms is great

from tropicalmamo
I spent 11 days over there enjoyng the peace of this small hotel where everyone is friendly and looks after you.
Nice,clean room ,super position on the beach.


from ed956
It was my first trip to Jamaica but my girlfriend has gone there practically every year as she's got family there. To start with we were dubious, we had thought we had booked at a different hotel and then were unable to find any pictures of this one, add to this that we arrived when there was a power cut to the whole of Negril so were unable to see a lot that first night, however the room looked quite pleasant and the staff seemed quite helpful.
The next morning we got up and went to breakfast, wow! After walking along a palm tree lined walkway we got the restaurant area, the eating area was almost on the beach with the most amazing blue sea and white sand backdrop. From this point on i could not stop smiling.
Everyone from the hotel owners to the bar staff to the chef to the gardener was extremely friendly and sociable, it felt as if we were the only guests staying there!
The food was amazing, doesn't matter what you prefer, i went there a confirmed fish hater, within days i was eating salt fish and king fish! We had a romantic dinner one night, eating on the deck as the sun went down. the chef cooked us his favorite fish dish that was not even on the menu!
The bar was nice and cosy with some smooth reggae playing, perfect for chilling out and watching the world go by.
As a mentioned earlier the location is perfect, you walk along the beach to all of the other bars and restaurants and you can get access to any water sports within meters of the hotel.
For our holiday we decided to spent the second week in Montego Bay, if only the second hotel was even slightly like The Palms Resort!
We will definitely be going back again and next time we're staying there for both weeks!
