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. ...
... gave me an explanation and a tour and then left. He called me at 7 to check and see if I needed anything.
I even managed to find my way around the resort, mostly. Lisa had a massive suite. Danielle had a swanky room also.
We hung out in her room for a bit. Not much happening there as it's couples only.
Tomorrow we leave for home. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Negril Escape Resort & Spa
A week at Mariner's Inn was more than just a week but a life time experience that I will always remember. The experience was wonderful, food was great, friendly, courteous and effective staffs. The managers make sure that every guest was well taken care of. The seaview and sunset view was wonderful and scuba diving is a must. For night life they also have a shuttle bus that takes you to and from The Jungle Night Club. It's a all in one resort where you can relax and have fun. I would definately go back, I wish I was there right now re-living the expereince again.... :)
"Maximum respect fi dat hotel". I spent two holidays in that hotel and my expectations were fulfilled in every way. Gentle and obliging as it should be. One should definitely give it a try and enjoy the westend of Negril.
My husband and me have been at Mariners Inn 3 times and we'll be there again soon! The staff is wonderful! Let's mention Alrick, the bartender, Chris, the cook, Suzette and Angie at the front office... my god I could go on for hours... They all make our holiday so beautiful!
Hi, I spent a weekend at Mariner's Inn in August 2004. My boyfriend and I booked all-inclusive. However, that is a waste of time as the food was horrendous. I have stayed at SEVERAL hotels in Negril (more expensive as well as well as less expensive) but this was the second worst (only out done by my stay at Rock Cliff Hotel - now called Rocalta I think). Anyways, we arrived late (2:00 am). It took us 1/2 hour to locate the security guard (who was supposed to be at the gate) However, they were courteous enough to take us to our rooms despite arriving at an ungodly hour.
My husband and I stayed at Mariner's Inn for two nights only in February...we needed a place to stay for our last two nights of our holiday as our main resort did not have space for us as we had booked last minute. This place was not open in December when we checked but has now recovered quite nicely after the hurricane. There was some construction going on while we were there but it didn't interfere with our stay. The receptionist, Suzette, was wonderful in finding us an available room with only 2-3 days notice. She booked us in a room overlooking the pool and also found us a fridge for our room. The room itself is small and worn-looking but none the less, was clean and tidy. I don't know if I would stay for an entire week as the bed was only a double and VERY firm. The view from our balcony definitely made up for the room's shortcomings.
Our stay at Mariners Inns.I wrote this on the wrong site. Lets try again. Mariners Inn was absoulutly the best. Let me start of will Carol. The first night we met her at the bar. Then every day it was from sun up to sun down. She's incredible. All we ever had to do was ask. She needs a raise. Everyone bent over backwards to make our stay incredible, and it worked. The whole staff was great. The night before we were leaving they said they would have the coffee on for us first thing in the AM, and they did. Our flight was an early pick up from the hotel. Our transfers were paid in the package. Jamaica United tours never showed up. Angie from the front office was in work early. Carol explained the situation to her. Angie spent at least 45 min on the phone to try and reach Jamaica tours. Know one ever answered. We ended up taking a taxi. In which Angie arranged. It just shows you the professionalism of the staff at Mariners Inn. We will be back soon, but not using Jamaica United tours for our transfers. Our deepest thanks to all the staff at Mariners Inn. Bob & Kathy Yanosky P.S. Please do the massage by Jennifer, and take the time to talk to James (the dive instructor, great people)P.S.S. Can't forget the chef. Breakfest does not start until 8:00. At 7:00 am she came down and asked us if we wanted and early mans breakfest. We said we were leaving in a few minutes, but it was ready. My hats off. Thank you
Me and my boyfriend stayed at Mariner's Inn on the cliffs for two weeks in march this year and we loved it. The place by itself it was nice but a bit old and it can be seen that it has never been renovated since it was built. But the location was superb. There was a beautiful seaside view from every room and we could even watch the sunset from our balcony. Rooms were cleaned daily, we got fresh towels every day and our bed was also changed twice in two weeks. Food was great. We had all inclusive, so we ate buffet food and we really really liked it. You just had to be there on time, when the meal starts. People working there were really nice and friendly. And another good thing is that Mariner's has another hotel on the beach and we could also use that one as well (eat there, use sunchairs...). We would definitely go there again and we would recomend it to students (we are students as well) and to people who don't care so much about the equipment of the room but like to be in a clean place on a magnificent location.
This place sucks
I recently stayed at this motel. The service sucked all the way around.
On the outside, the place is very appealing. When i went to my room, there were no towels in it, i had to ask for them.
Maid service usually came by about 4PM or later. That was way too late.
I would normally leave my room early in the day and when i would return at 4PM or later, the room had not been serviced.
The staff, in particular the manager, was rude and unprofessional as well. I would never consider this place again and would encourage others to look elsewhere as well.
There are good places to stay in Negril, but this is not one of them.
My stay at Mariner's Inn Resort was an experience to remember....the resort was beautiful... rooms are cleaned daily... pool was small but just right for my family of 23 ( aunts, uncles, cousins).. the food was great and the service is excellent, friendly, efficient, and courteous.... all the staff became my friends by the time i left there... I highly recommend Mariner's Inn....if there's something that you need just ask them and they will try their very best to please you, that's what they did for me...for anyone going Mariner's, tell them that Juliet says "yah mon, everyting irie.." check this place out, you won't be disappointed.....Ask for Joy or Suzette at the front desk...they're really nice... enjoy your stay at Mariner's Inn...YAH MON, NO PROBLEM!!
Run down, disrepair
Mariner's on the Cliff has the potential to be a charming resort. However, it has not been kept up and is in disrepair. The property has garbage, cans and bottles lying around. The pool can be quite dirty appearing not to be cleaned on a regular basis and not properly treated with chemicals. The shower in one of our rooms did not drain so when you were in the shower it was filling up. The staff for the most part is friendly, not their fault the property is not kept up. The food at the restaurant is good, I did not do the all inclusive so did not eat the buffet food.
