I really enjoyed my stay at Idle Awhile cliffs. It is further west of Negril than I thought but we made it work. Be sure to arrange taxi service especially in the evening or at night as taxis didn't seem to pass by often. - The grounds were kept clean - The rooms can use a slight update. For instance, the patio door didn't have a mesh so we couldn't open them or we would be fighting mosquitos all night. - The staff were kind and accommodating. - The a la cart meals were pretty good. I was happy to get complementary breakfast. I would love it if the menu was expanded to include more authentic Jamaican food options. - The pool was nice a clean.

We had a nice stay at this resort. It is a bit out-of-the-way - which suited us fine! - and some of the buildings need a little TLC. But wow, what a peaceful place! we had the place pretty much to ourselves, and the location, pool, views, staff, outdoor restaurant, and fresh tasty food, cooked to order, were absolutely wonderful. We tread water in the ocean, then swam off the brine in the pool, had cocktails with the family at sunset while they cooked up here shrimp salads and fish filets. For a change of pace, we walked ten minutes to Murphy’s for dinner once or twice. If they boosted the WiFi (quite weak in many areas; cellular service not much better), and water pressure upstairs in our villa, they could be charging a whole lot more money. Four stars.

Loved and appreciated the dedicated staff and the ease of communication. The hotel seemed very well managed. Nice, quiet, peaceful cliff location with elevated views of the ocean. The chef was very talented with creative, fresh and healthy Jamaican inspired cuisine. The units were tastefully designed and furnished in a relaxed and chic, island modern style. Shuttle to the beach property was a fantastic addition. IdleAwhile, I will be back! Thanks for making a single female traveler feel like a Queen! Bless!

I’m in Negril on the Cliffs often and I’m so glad I’ve finally stayed here. It’s beautiful and the rooms are big and spacious. The staff is amazing and kind. Very attentive. Free breakfast was a lovely touch. Shane was especially accommodating. Thank you. And a discounted Covid test to return home made me very happy. I love how intimate the property is. My only caveat was the remote had dead batteries in it and we had to keep switching batteries from one remote to another to get the devices to work. Maintenance did come and fix that issue. And the some of the sun shades on the pool deck need to be fixed. Thank you for the comfortable stay. I will return again.

When staying on the cliff side of Negril, we always look here first. It is quiet, clean, comfortable, calm. The food is excellent, the service is perfect, the ambience is naturalistic, the sea is deep, the pool is warm.
