Historical Traveler Reviews Country Country Beach Cottages Negril
What a great find!!!!
We visited Negril and stayed at Country Country December 6-10th 2005. It's a wonderful place. The staff, (Say hi to Lee), is very nice and helpful. The cabins are comfortable and and attractive. A true island experience. Seven Mile Beach is an interesting place and extremely laid back. No Shoes No problem!! is the rule. Be sure to contact Jamaica Tours (Nicola was our tour guide - very good) and to arrange some trips around the island. Especially YS Falls and the Appleton Rum Factory tour (there's 19 varieties and you get to taste them all!!). The pictures you see of the cabins are good representations of the site however there are lots of trees and flowers as well. We will be back. Have fun and enjoy.
Country Country hotel in Negril is a charmer. We recently spent five nights there and could not have been happier. It is a beautiful, serene place. It is very private, but is a one-minute walk from Margaritaville (just one door away), which is open late and it lively.
There are two levels of rooms: premium and superior. We were in the lower-priced level (which I believe is "premium"), which was beautiful. The king bed is two twins pushed together, which is not terrible as it sounds. It was not the most luxurious bed, but not a problem on even a romantic trip. Rooms have fans, air conditioning and fridges. It is like a small poolhouse all to yourself. It is beautifully designed, with surprising colors and pretty, beachy furniture.
The hotel has a lovely restaurant with the nicest location along the seven-mile beach: it sits right on the water. The decor is beautiful - colorful and airy - the service is attentive and friendly. The food was good - wonderful breakfasts, tasty lunches, decent dinners. It is reasonably priced - a bit high for lunch (about $8US), but low for dinner ($10US). Drinks are mixed well, and the beer is cold. Definitely get breakfast included, perhaps lunch as well.
There are no water activities included - if snorkeling and the like is your thing, you may want to go to a resort. Couples Negril looked amazing; Coco LaPalm looked very nice, though not as boutique-y and high-end detailed as Country Country. But people walk by the beach all day, offering snorkeling and horseback riding and whatever else you'd like to do. Also, you can walk the beach and do things along the way.
The beach is somewhat small, but the whole of Negrill is one big connected beach so it makes absolutely no difference. The beaches are not cut off from one another, you can wander at will.
I would absolutely go back to Country Country! A real treat.
I Love This Place !!
We stayed in cottage #513 for 9 days and it was Great!!
The property is absolutely Beautiful. The people working there are
helpful and pleasent. Country provides round the clock security so if you have never been to Jamacia you can rest & relax worry free.
We pre-paid transportation from Montego to Country Country online
(I highly recommend) the airport is a little stressful and having that out of the way was nice. The trip from the airport takes about an hour try to get a cab rather than riding on a bus it makes for a better trip. Also TAKE SMALL U.S Bills 1s & 5s about 200.00 worth it will help you get through the first couple days till you get use to the money there.
Next door at treehouse is a gift shop you can pick up nick nacks ex. suntan oil,film,candy etc.. Down the road is a little store Beer,Soft Drinks,Chips, Get ready though No Coca Cola,or Budweiser its Pepsi & Red Stripe and thats pretty much everywhere. While you are there you must visit YS falls,Go to the Rum Plantation,and definitely eat at Tree dive or Three dive and tour the Whitehouse estate. I have a friend who drives a taxi there contact me for his number. Hes a good guy.
Stayed at Country, Country in October, 2004. Absolutely loved it!
Staff was very nice and accomodating and made you feel welcome to Jamaica.
Cottages were very clean, just plain cute, and private. Even after the Hurricane, the grounds were immaculate. Will positively stay there again.
Will return to Country Country
Just returned Tuesday from Country Country in Negril. I enjoyed every moment. The cottages were clean and neat and quite adequate. Cottage 513 is steps away from the beach and restaurant. The staff is warm, wonderful, friendly and caring! Much respect to them all :)
If it weren't for the fact that I had to return home to prepare Thanksgiving dinner for the family, I'd still be in Jamaica at Country Country.
Loved CC and Staff
We had done our research and this place did not dissappoint. We loved the rooms and gardens. We also had people ask us about CC. Staff was exceptionally accommodating and friendly, esp. "B" the manager. We were in room 516 which is only one cottage away from the ocean. (#515 overlooks the beach but also near the restroom). Beach is outstanding. Resturant offers good food that was basic, inexpensive, but well prepared. Kuyaba (sp?) down the road had a really good menu and we had dinner there several times. Margaritaville is just 3 doors down and on Saturday night they were really going strong. Small grocery about a 10 minute walk where you can buy beer, etc. to enjoy on your porch. Do the Mayfield Falls trip. Will go back to Country Country without hesitation. No problem mon.
Country Country is a wonderful Caribbean hideaway located in the perfect location on 7-mile beach. Mr T, Andre and Lee and the rest of the staff at Country Country made our stay idealic. We met three different couples who were staying near Country Country, when they saw our room, the service we had and our food they all wanted to transfer to Country Country. I would not recommend this hotel to someone who likes "Holiday Inn" type accommodations. The rooms are very Caribbean, clean and comfortable. The pictures they have on their website are a good representation of how they look. We will definitely be returning to Country Country.
Greatest Place In Negril
We stayed at Country Country on May 14-May 18 for four days. The staff was polite and very professional. The food was the best. We ate at several other locations along the beach and Country Country has them all beat by far. If you are looking for a nice quite place to relax this is the place. The landscaping of the resort was one of the most beautifull along 7 mile beach. The cottages were beautifull and I can see why they won the gonenors award. The designs of the cottages and the beautiful landscaping truly made us feel as if we were in paradise. No snooty people like at the large resorts just polite helpfull staff. My wife and I after looking at some of the other resorts along the beach would again choose to return to Country Country.
if you are looking for a relaxing quite place right on the beach close to great resturants and bars, this is just lovely. small, great service, true jamaica... not a resort but more like what you would like out of jamaica. beautiful plants, great small beach, cool colorful cottages, wonderful drinks and food. i am coming back!
Cute, but rustic, Negril lodgings
Country, Country features very cute exteriors, but the interiors are pretty shabby and the furniture needs updating. They did a great job designing the cute clapboard exteriors and the landscaping is lush and pretty.
The interiors feature serviceable A/C and furniture you'd find at yard sales in the U.S. The pair of single beds were pretty uncomfortable and the room also had a daybed/couch w/ a foam backrest. My bathroom had a decent shower without a bath (occasionally without any water pressure) but nothing luxurious.
There isn't a pool available and the beach is pretty narrow and shallow with a beach bar and grill. Beach chairs are plastic and a bit uncomfortable.
It's a decent place if you want to soak in the lush landscape and exteriors, but don't come with high expectations for the interiors themselves. I expected a bit more for the nightly rate they offer.

... amazing properties intermingled amongst the ghettos! We drove all round and through Montego Bay which is a large extremely busy city. Eventually we arrived at Nine Mile which is where Bob Marley grew up initially with his Grand Parents! Now you are really into wacky Baccy territory here !!

... retrieve the anchor. A new one is hellishly expensive, and in the meantime the one we have isn’t quite up to the job so someone needs to stay with the boat to make sure it doesn’t move. The last yacht in a race from Fort Lauderdale had just arrived, so a party was turned on at the club and we were invited to free cocktails. Needless to say we went! We met a few interesting people and had a delightful evening.
Tuesday, 10th February
In order to try and get some favourable winds, we headed off pre sunrise under motor. The wind was most uncooperative, being pretty much a head wind all day. We motored along firstly with almost no wind and fairly flat seas with storm clouds brewing. We got some rain, some strong winds in the wrong direction and some rough seas. We ...
