... West End. The restaurant is then tucked away between the garden and the ocean. It was the ideal setting, private and romantic. The food was gourmet with an island flair. Each course was better than the previous. The presentation was almost as good as how delectable the dishes were.
I see Negril in my future. I'll be going back for another dose of relaxation in the Caribbean very soon. You should ...
Today was a much needed day at sea. We got a ton of sun yesterday and are both pretty tired today. We started with breakfast at the solarium, one of the few places we haven't tried yet. It’s the healthier eating buffet. The food wasn’t particularly good, though to be fair none of the buffet food on this ship is very good. We’ve been eating a lot at some of the other dining venues and have only visited ...

For dinner, we decided to go to Neptune's. It was pouring rain, fortunately we had an umbrella. When we arrived, we were still a little drenched (I had on flip flops because I had blisters on my feet from the fins). One of the waiters came up to us and gave us napkins to dry off on. Since it was raining, they had the curtains down. We were originally sitting at a table close to ...

We did two dives, both excellent. Then we returned around noon. I met up with Elly and we had lunch at Neptune's. We watched a wedding couple have their pictures taken in what looked to be very uncomfortable positions.
After lunch, I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Whistling Bird Resort Negril
Overall, we had a really nice stay. I think some people would really enjoy Whistling Bird, but it's not for everyone. If you want to avoid the walled-off inclusive experience, this might be a good option.
We went to Whistling Bird May 8 - 15 with another couple. We got married there at sunset on the beach on May 10. It was beautiful! Bim made a wonderful gorgeous arch (all natural foliage) with flower petals strewn along the bridal path (at each end in flowers he wrote "I love you". It was a wonderful experience that I'll remember the rest of my life! We've been there 3 times and always love it. The entire staff is so friendly and willing to do anything to ensure you have a good time. The rooms make you feel like you're truly in tropical setting, the garden area is beautiful, the beach large and close to the cottages, and the food is spectacular! Jim, the owner, was there and he was particularly interested in getting to know us! A good person to get to know. Even though it rained each afternoon, we got plenty of sun in the mornings and it quit in time for our wedding at 5:30 pm. A wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone who loves beaches and a quiet l!ife!
Whistling Bird, Our Home Away From Home
If you want to experience true jamaica, with beautiful accomidations and an amazing staff, then Whistling Bird is for you!!! I booked our trip on the internet and was a bit sceptical about Whistling Bird, until we arrived and walked through the gate. The grounds were beautiful, the cottages were spotless and the staff already knew our names. Anything we even thought we wanted was made available. We are already planning our next visit to this beautiful home away from home.
If you have any questions, or would like some pictures, please feel free to email.
Found a new home at the Whistling Bird
Not sure why the person who wrote the ugly review below even left their house. We have not one complaint about the property. Great service, excellent staff, beautiful landscaping, love the tree frogs and a room that felt like home. We'll be back without a doubt.
What a Wonderful Beach !
My wife and I have stayed at Whistling Bird many times and think it is the best deal in town for many reasons. Their piece of the beach is beautiful, the staff is excellant, and the cottages superb. The private dining facility serves some of the best food on the beach and the grounds are beautiful. We will return again !
Stop the Whistling, Please!
I have been to Whistling Bird twice and it is definitely going DOWN HILL! Whistling Bird is a quaint but increasingly dilapidated resort in the center of Negril's beautiful beach front. Their beach chairs are junk, cats like to share your breakfast table, our cottage roof leaked, we at times had no hot water, the tree frogs whistle all night, and the heavy base music from the Jungle Club direcly across the street booms until late into the night. It's the only place I've ever been that handed out ear plugs to its guests. Really! The staff is wonderful but the management is not overly above-board. Negril is an excellent place, but I'd suggest staying someplace better than Whistling Bird!
This place is awesome! We have stayed at Whistling Bird for 4 years in a row, and would go back in a second. The Cottages are very nice, they have hardwood floors, nice decor, with ceiling fans. They are cleaned everyday by the staff, and are kept clean, tidy and very comfortable!
I was just sick about this place. I purchased this package at an upscale benefit for the Summit Ski Team. The Whistling Bird advertised something it was not and the pictures were completely deceiving. This place was a total pit. I felt like I was living in a shanty town. The place was filthy, the bed was the worst I have ever slept in, and bugs everywhere. There is no glass on the windows and no air conditioning.
Anyting you want Mon.
I have been to this resort with my wife and 2 sons twice and would go back in a heartbeat. In fact when we ask the kids where they would want to go on Spring Break, they ALWAYS say Whisltling Bird. Laid back atmosphere, awesome staff, great food and drinks. Really want to get to know the Jamaican people? Go. Stay at this place. Comortable cabin rooms and a beautiful garden setting and beautiful beach.
I ave been visiting the Whistling Bird Resort in Negril since 2000 and it is one of the best kept secrets of Negril. I remember our last visit like yesterday because I just yearn to go back. The property is green & lush. Trees are everywhere. The cottages are spread about the property but strategically built to have a view of the beach. In the middle there is a building with the kitchen and dinning area. Also in the middle is a quaint little thatched roof office with a pay phone on the outside. We got to a cottage that had a view of the beach. It had 2 bedrooms, a living area and a bathroom with a powder area. The rooms at the Whistling bird are tropically decorated and really feel homely. I think the best part of Negril beach is on the property. The water is is clear and the trees on the property provide a good place to just watch the waves coming and people walking up and down the beach. On of the best things about the Whistling Bird Resort is the staff. They are courteous and very helpful. The will go the extra mile to be sure you are satisfied. I remember on many occassions we had a "yearn" for a particular type of food and they would find a way to get it. We had our kids with us and when we wanted to take night out one of the staff members babysat for us. You know warmth when kids go to other people and this was prevlant with the staff there. In all my stays at resorts across the USA, in Europe (London, Paris), and in other Caribbean hotels I have never experienced such great customer service. Very Genuine and willing to educate on on Jamaica and Jamaican culture. My wife refuses to let a year go by without us taking a "mini-vacation" there. Unfortunatly we will not make it this year because of a new baby however we will be back next year...If you want to experience the real Jamaica I recommend this resort...
