... Ricks Cafe is absolutely beautiful! You do not pay to get into Ricks, but you can tip the jumpers. The food and drinks are quite expensive, but this is a major tourist destination so that was expected. Known for its cliff diving, you will see some insane jumpers. They do crazy tricks while jumping off the cliffs. Unfortunately the day I went to Ricks 2 people had died from jumping, I was actually on my way with all intentions to cliff dive, by the time I got there the cliffs ...
From March 11th 2013 to March 27th 2013 I traveled to Grange, Jamaica to teach in a primary school. I was given this amazing opportunity through my university, where I was enrolled in the Faculty of Education.
Driving- First things first, I am going to talk about the driving in Jamaica, I have one word to describe it... CRAZY! Jamaicans drive on the left hand side and they drive FAST! The roads are very curvy with not much space, especially when you drive ...
Honey, we're home! Time to ring in the New Year at our favorite spot, Couples Swept Away in beautiful Negril, Jamaica. This time, we did commit on exploring more Jamaican culture and doing more activities, and did learn a little more about their culture . However, most of our days where spent laying on the gorgeous 7 Mile Beach. Ya ...
After running across some pictures of my trip to Jamaica I remembered that I had a very out of date travel pod that needed some attention. So, here I am a whole year later sharing the details and pictures of my rendezvous to Negril Beach, Jamaica.
Myself and couple of friends decided that we needed to take a summer trip and after much discussion Jamaica became the lucky winner, or should I say we were the lucky ones? Jamaica is ...
... cool, we knew eventually we would get what was requested, and we did the next day...Don't fret about it if you find that to be the case when you arrive to your room; there are plenty of bars around for a drink...some folks get pretty bummed out about this; relax, go have a drink or two; go explore the beautiful beach and see what else awaits you for your vacation week; give the staff time to stock, they are extremely busy getting those rooms ready for arriving ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lost Beach Resort Negril
My wife and I have been travelling to Jamaica since the 1970's. We stayed multiple times at the "all inclusive" resorts until discovering Lost Beach in 2001. It is now our Jamaican resort of choice. If you enjoy wearing a wrist band and standing in buffet lines, do NOT go to Lost Beach. If you enjoy arising at 5:00 AM to put your towel out to reserve a lounger, do NOT go to Lost Beach. If you enjoy an Entertainment Director imploring you to "Put your hands together" or encouraging you to enter the limbo contest, do NOT go to Lost Beach. However, if you want peace, tranquility and beautiful scenery, GO to Lost Beach. If you want to be warmly greeted daily, by name, by the entire staff, GO to Lost Beach. If you want to get to know Jennifer, the manager, Mark the pool boy, Lisa the bartender/waitress, Mrs. Harvey, the housekeeeper and even the owners Steve and Beth Welsh, GO to lost Beach. I haven't even mentioned the food, the working fishing village next door, the walks on the beach, the snorkling, the fishing or a trip into Negril. Suffice to say we will be back next year. Indeed on that visit we intend to take our 3 sons, their wives and our 11 grandchildren.
We visited Jamaica for 6 hours on a cruise excursion. We were eager to spend more time in the beautiful country.
Perfect island paradise
I will be back to the lost beach resort. i am already planning the next trip. since it was summer i thought it would be too hot but there is a great ocean breeze and overhead fans and i felt fine the entire trip. my only complaint is that i did not plan for a longer vacation.
jennifer and her husband are wonderful people who will and do go out of their way to make the guests happy. thanks so much for making this a memorable trip for me.
I stayed at Lost Beach with a group of friends. We had an amazing time! We were looking for a place to stay that was not touristy, and very relaxed. Lost Beach is all that and more. It is nestled in a country setting that feels like it's much farther from Negril than it actually is. In fact, if you need to go to town, it's not that far of a drive. The grounds of Lost Beach are beautiful. There are lots of flowers and neat sculptures. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, with wonderful views of the sea. The locals that live around Lost Beach were so friendly too.
I have always enjoyed the family atmosphere of Lost Beach. Jennifer and her crew are the reasons we return.Imagine opening the door to your Veranda and the ocean welcomes you 100 feet away. Don't miss the fantastic sunrise each morning,sip your coffee and watch the local fishermen launch their boats. Wait for their return a few hours later and see if their catch is shrimp, lobster or fish.You can be sure Jennifer will have something fresh caught on the menu for your visit.If you're looking for something special she will go out of her way to find it for you.There are always fresh salads and veggies on the menu and you have to try the buttermilk chicken.The walk along the secluded beach cannot be compared to Negril.You won't see hotels,higglers or hear loud music. You may pass a local commuting to his job...by way of the beach. The shells we found this year were incredible thanks to Hurricane Ivan.You will see other small local bars where the people are friendly and welcome you to the neighborhood.There are so many hideaway places to see in this area, Bob Marleys' beach house and bathing hole; the bat cave, great snorkling and fishing...but most of all it's the people.We stay for a month and it's still not enough time.We have gotten to know the crew at Lost Beach.If you want Sandal's, it's not...if you want a place and people that treat you like family and know your name, know your drink when you go the bar...cooks that will prepare anything...anyway you like it...a place where your children can play safely...a place that is off the beaten path...it is. If you want to go to Negril or any other tourist attraction, there is a hotel vehicle that can take you....but remember, this is Jamaica...plan ahead for your trips, your dinner...everything is prepared fresh. If you have a problem, talk to Jennifer. She will go out of her way to accomodate you. That's why we're going back. Thanks for a great time...everytime! Soon come back:)
My husband I have travelling to Jamacia for the past twenty years, always staying in Negril. We were so excited to discover Lost Beach Resort. It is truly the way we remembered the beaches of Negril in 1984! You can lose yourself wlking for miles on deserted beaches. And when you get back a smiling bartender is ready to greet you with the beverage of your choice.
My wife and I had planned to return to Jamaica after two great trips to the large resorts in Negril, Mo Bay and Ocho Rios. We searched for a more out of the way location to get away from the PRESSURE combination of tourism and poverty. We wanted to meet real Jamaicans who weren't trying to hussle a hair braid or boat ride or contraband to anyone who was not local. Jamaica is very beautiful but also very poor. We searched for a place that offered a kitchen and less commercialized surroundings. That's how we found Lost Beach.
Awsome trip ..loved lost beach
We had our renewal of vows (5yrs) at Lost Beach on November 17th, 2004; we had over 150 guests for the event. The service was excellent; Miss Jennifer the manager is just as sweet as can be. She made sure we were well taken care of. Nikki was so pleasant. The cooks were great and the food was to die for. We had so much food and drinks and all was good.
I say Hats off to the staff of Lost Beach. The grounds are beautiful and very exotic. The scenery is very romantic. Our event was a success because of the treatment we received from all at Lost Beach. I do recommend my family and friends to visit, and Lost Beach I will be back. We miss you guys.
Love you all.
Lost Beach used to be a wonderful place to stay for an alternative resort experience in Jamaica, but not anymore. Apparently there has been a change in the local management and the result is not positive. The beauty of resort is that it is situated in an isolated location on the beach in a very quiet part of the island. The service and the quality of the restaurant and bar, and the warm local staff made your stay special and worth returning. However, on my recent visit there I was saddened to see that the service of the resort has slipped considerably. The resort provides a van to pick you up at the airport in MoBay given its isolated location. In years past the van was always there ready to pick you up upon arrival, but on this last trip the van was an hour late, and the driver said that they just didn't leave on time. After that my experience continued to go downhill. Until management changes it is no longer one of my hidden gems that I will recommend to my friends.
