Sunset on the Beach Resort
Travel Blogs from Negril
Sad to leave the beauty of the Jamaican people, the warm water on my feet, the gorgeous sunsets and the girls on this trip. Also, J our fearless leader. He kept us in check and made it fun. I don't want to go back to a Canadian winter. Not quite yet. ...
Great room. Nice hotel. Not my style as I don't feel comfortable with a butler assigned to me but I made the most of it. The room had a bar and a jacuzzi which I didn't use with the jets but did take advantage of to soak my feet.
I could have asked Michael to unpack my clothes, iron my dress, make me a drink but that is so not my style. ...
... brought us to 45 minutes prior to boarding and their systems went down.
We made it although we left later due to the weather which while we waited for boarding and on the aircraft had turned to snow. So, after some de-icing we finally took off for Toronto. Weather there was overcast but fine.
We got into Jamaica and it felt like we'd been travelling for days. I slept some on both ...
... argghh no wifi there.. At least my phone worked and I called Steve, the owner of the Bethel Court Hostel who told me they still had vacancy in one of the dorm rooms. Lucky for me, his driver was at the airport to pick up some other guests at that time and took me straight to the Hostel.
Arriving there I was welcomed by Richard. A young Jamaican who was somewhat in charge that everybody is happy :) He showed me the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sunset on the Beach Resort Negril
This will be our 9th visit......
I've been visiting the Coral Seas Beach and Cliffs with my (Jamaican) husband for the past 9 years. We love this place. The staff are friendly and always helpful. The beach is on the doorstep - a perfect location. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the centre of Negril and there are an abundance of restaurants and bars within easy reach. The beach is clean and patrolled by the hotels' security - I'll be staying there with a girlfriend later this month (April 2006)- my husband is too busy this time!- and I feel safe and reassured that we'll be well taken care of as always.
Maybe the decor is a little 'tired' now but, all in all, we feel that the Coral Seas Beach represents good value for money in a paradise location.
Coral Seas Beach lies on the 7-mile beach of Negril. The location was perfectly situated in Negril. It's not too far from Time Square (shopping mall/center) nor is it too far away from the bank or ATM machine. The rooms were very spacious. With this hotel, you pay for what you get. I stayed in a Triple Suite, which only had two-double beds. The rooms are clean but they could use a little remodeling and upgrading. The faucets in the bathroom are kind of old but it's doable nonetheless. There are little ants on the floor sometimes, so don't leave anything wet on the ground or even your luggage bag. because ants will get in your bag. Besides ants, I didn't see any other bugs in my room. But my next-door neighbor did kill a huge bug in her room, which she presumed was a roach. So bring Raid or bug spray.
My husband and I were married at the Coral Seas Cliff resort in Negril, Jamaica in early Nov. 2005. We had nearly 40 guests who attended our wedding. Everyone stayed at the Coral Seas Beach location. Overall we were very happy with our experience at Coral Seas. The wedding was stress-free and perfect!
Beach was awesome
Went to the resort for a wedding! Started from the hot airport out into a wonderfully airconditioned stretch white limo with champagne, red stripe beer on ice and reggae music and the rest of the trip got better from there. Lovely rooms, garden and lots of water. The staff was terrific and engaging - Heather, Roxie, Richard, Samuel, James and the rest. The drinks were endless - the food was slow but no problem - no clocks in Jamaica! Recommend highly. PS Wedding was at their cliffs resort - all good!
Very nice place
To keep it short, I would definitely return to Corals Seas! We had a suite with oceanview just 20 meters away from the sea - amazing!
Off-season, suites cost only 80 USD! Prices are highly negotiable if you dont book in advance.
Very quiet place, nice people.
In October, the hotel only had two guests - us and another couple! In November it was filling up.
Free shuttles to the cliff hotel, which is also worth a visit (& close to Rick's cafe).
We absolutely loved our stay in Negril at the Coral Seas Beach Resort. This resort is literally right on the beach, and the 7 mile white sand beach, at that. The view from the resort is beautiful, although there aren't views from the majority of the rooms. We had an upstairs end room and it had wonderful vaulted ceilings. We loved our 1 bedroom suite! We did not use the kitchen, but loved having the full sized refrigerator for our fruit and drinks. The air conditioning was great. It is true that it takes a while to get your food at the restaurant, so I suggest you allow time for that. The food was very good (I recommend the pepper steak when available) and drinks made to order. Although they will probably hate me for this, (as it takes a while to make) I recommend the mudslide! The service is laxidasical, but this is Jamaica! You should not be in a hurry!
We booked through Negril One Stop.Since we had never been to Jamaica, we were a little apprehensive. We couln't have been happier. The resort is somewhat rundown (the bathtub and a/c leaked, there was never enough hot water for two of us to shower and the springs on the sofa were sticking out) but after the first day it didn't matter. We stayed in one of the one bedroom aprtments and we had two balconies overlooking the most beautiful gardens imaginable. The smell of the flowers was something I will never forget. The bedroom had a very high ceiling and every morning the sun would stream in through the window in the ceiling and we would wake up to the sound of the gentle waves.
Just returned from our honeymoon at Coral Seas. We booked it through One Stop Vacation (------). We stayed in room 909B - A very nice suite for the price. We did the King& Queen Package (All food including seafood & all alcohol)
We would return to Negril in a heartbeat. We would stay at Coral Seas Beach Resort again if the price was right. Overall it was above average accommodations for the price with really nice people, just might want to try a different location.
We went to Coral Seas Beach resort in July of 2002. The staff, service and food were beyond belief! We booked the "King & Queen" packege with Bob & Susan at Negril Onestop. Everything that was promised- happened and we had the time of our lives. We were pampered by being picked up at the Airport in a limosine, it's a long ride from Montego Bay to Negril! We enjoyed one In-room massage for each of us, unlimited non-motorized water-sports, lobster every night (if you want) and top shelf beverages- all included in a great package price! The name 'King & Queen' truly fit the package! We had such a good time that when I proposed to my honey, the choice of where to go for the festvities- was a no-brainer- Coral Seas! My future bride and our entire wedding party will be staying at the Beach and enjoying ourselves from May 10-17, 2004. If you want to mingle with real people and get great service, food and peace- go to Coral Seas. With Coral Seas you'll never go wrong.
