... hot and cold water, shower and bath, Cable television, double, single and queen size beds and private balcony/patio. When you go and visit to Bar-B-Barn you are not just a guest, you are part of a family; home away from home, singles, couples and family alike. Being a family run hotel that has been in operation for over twenty years.It will be a great experience for every member of the family. ...
Next day, much like the first. I went Scuba diving and Elly took out a kayak. We did two dives, and again it was great. Got back around noon, and we had lunch at Neptunes again. It's a great spot because it overlooks the beach (we asked to be at a table that was a little further from the main area but it was overlooking the ocean). It was really windy.
After lunch, we went back to the room to shower and then we went ...
The next morning we were up relatively early. I went to the scuba center (grabbing breakfast and coffee) on the way, and Elly went for a run. Scuba was fun, but I had to set up all my equipment, which I hadn't done in a while. On the first dive, we saw a six foot Nurse Shark, which was cool because to see him/her, the Dive Leader had to hold us down to the ocean floor and move us under the reef. I wasn't sure what ...
I woke up at 3:59, one minute before the alarm was to go off at 4am. I got up and took a shower, then woke Elly. Poor Elly only got about two hours of sleep, and almost tried to brush her teeth with eye cream. We got ready, finished packing and the car arrived at 5am.
The ride to the airport was easy. We checked in, dropped our bags, and somehow had the "fast pass" through security. On the other side of security, we grabbed ...
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. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fun Holiday Beach Resort Negril
What a pleasant experience! The staff was friendly and courteous, the grounds were well kept, the environment was relaxing-no big resort style where you had to go to events & eat at certain times, not expensive, great happy hour prices!
I visited Fun holiday beach Resort lasted Aug.2003 with my two young daughters (1 & 14) & there friends. The staff was friendly & attentive, the kitchenette was large & well stocked. There was plenty for adults, to do as well. The Jungle Nite Club is just a walk across the street. We had a great time, so much that I'm taking 12 adult girlfriend this Aug. 2004

I visited Fun Holiday in Easter with my family. I purchased one of their internet specials which includes airport transfers. The transportation came on time for us, the driver a very friendly person talked about the various small towns we passed through on the way to the hotel. At the hotel we were greeted by the courteous front office staff and for the whole week everyone was very nice to us. The rooms are clean, food is great and the overall atmosphere was fantastic. I already have a reservation for the Christmas holidays. I would suggest anyone who visit Negril to stay at Fun Holiday Beach .
Fun Holiday is great!!!
I had a really good time at the Fun Holiday Resort. It is right on the seven mile beach in Negril. The room was great and the service was excellent. The staff is very nice. I am looking foward to the next time I return to jamaica.
Recently I visited Negril with my Jamaican bride. She made the travel arrangements for our anniversary. We book the a suite at the Fun Holiday Beach Resort. I was a little cautious when we arrived as the rustic appearance is different from the city. However when we were shown our room is was a knock-out. Our door open straight to the Pool and Jaccuzzi with the Caribbean sea as its back drop. It was like an artist drawing. Just picture perfect. Mr. Vernon the manager had a bottle of champagne chill and waiting for us in our room. Never before had we been treated this way. I say "keep up the good work Fun Holiday and you gave me the best Jamaican Experience" "you are the Best"
Recent stay at Fun Holiday
I spent the christmas at Fun Holiday Beach Resort with my family and friend. This was my fisrt time at this resort and I was extremely impress with the amenities and the courteousness of the staff. We were late for our flight back and the management personal offer us a free night stay while they took on the responsibility of still getting us to the airport. They were successful and we catch the flight in the nick of time, but we will never forget the gesture and all our future stay in the island of Jamaica will be at the Fun Holiday Beach Resort.
Fun Holiday The Best
I stayed at Fun Holiday for the Christmas , this was my second trip there . I first stayed there last March for springbreak with my college friends and fell in love with the property and told my family about it and we decided we would all go back there .We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and will be regular visitors from now on. The staff there are just the best and they really let us feel at home . The rooms clean and the food great.I think that if you really want to enjoy the good island hospitality you should visit Fun Holiday . As the Jamaicans say One Love , I say Fun Holiday is all about Love . When you visit FUn Holiday tell them Annie L said Hi .

I stayed at Fun Holiday over in November .On the beach , rooms modest and clean and the staff there was just excellent . I have never seen a friendlier set . One can only observe that the staff there are very happy with their job . They are always so willing to help especially those at the bar. The chefs take pride in their work and and the maids are very honest. I suggest that anyone who wants to visit a small hotel where the atmosphere is just perfect visit Fun Holiday . Tell them Annete Green sent you .
Fun Holiday is the Best!
I was recently in Negril for 10 days. While there I stayed on the cliffs as well as on the beach.. Fun Holiday was an excellent beachfront choice as it is conveniently located to all of the night spots and shopping areas. On Thursday evening we attended a Reggae Party on the beach at Fun Holiday. It was great! Fun Holiday has the best pool and jacuzzi on the beach. The bar is great and the staff is eager to please. The rooms are modest and clean and a great value for the money. If going to Negril, make sure to call Fun Holiday.. I did and I plan to return in January.. Can't wait! By the way make sure you try the 2 for 1 Lobster - it's a great deal! Ask for Vernon or Garfield they will take great care of you.... Tell them Deb Cox sent you!
I went to Jamaica for a week holiday in September 2002 and checked into FUN HOLIDAY because I wanted to be on the beach and in the middle of the action... I kept my options open and booked my room one night at a time. The rooms were modest and clean, the second level has a nice balcony. As a single guy the staff were very friendly to me and Jefferey the bartender was one of the best bartenders in Negril. The few single women that were alone at FUN HOLIDAY told me there were all harrassed by the male staff - one of the managers followed one of the girls to her hotel door late at night and wanted to come in ... Another male kitchen staff wrote a long love note to another girl asking to her to stay in Jamaica and marry him, etc... You have to be tough to fend these guys off if you are female and alone. It was off season not many tourists in Negril at all. After three days I had to check out because the hotel could not make me a coffee in the morning! One day I went out and bought fresh ground coffee and gave it to the cook - it took them over 1.5 hours to make me a cup of coffee! The next morning I waited 1 hour and then one of the staff told me they couldn't make me the coffee because the cook didn't show and nobody could get into the kitchen. The guy told me to go over to see Jah B, a rasta nearby, and he will make me a coffee - so I did and Jah B made me an instant coffee outside his hut on an open fire which took another hour and which sucked.Since September 2002 I believe they have made some renovations. I believe that if you go during the peak season the hotel is better staffed and prepared for meals - considering the place gets packed with college kids during spring break, etc. The water also went out frequently while I was there and I had to wash myself in the sea. I ended up moving to Bar'B'Barn for the rest of my week which was much nicer with an excellent breakfast and dinner - but the staff were unfriendly and unhappy for the most part which sucked.
