Tingalayas has always been my top pick for a place to stay in Negril. It's a quiet retreat with beautiful garden views on one side of the property and magnificent ocean views on the opposite side of the property. It's so tranquil and peaceful on whichever side you decide to stay. It's close to seven mile beach and other attractions. The staff there are exceptionally helpful. They go out of their way to assist you in every way. The cottages are beautiful and clean. If you appreciate old world antiques and minimalist style, you will love your stay here. Breakfast is included-authentic Jamaican breakfast at its best. Looking forward to staying there again.

I absolutely LOVED my stay at Tingalaya's. Went for a solo quiet retreat and it was just what I needed. The environment was naturalistic and serene. I stayed in one of the smaller Seaview cottages which was a joy to wake up to in the morning. The property does have dogs but they are friendly and don't bother a soul. I found that they only barked for about 5 or so minutes at almost a set time at night - which was actually kinda fascinating (as if they were simply checking in to each other. Beyond that, the place was quiet. Breakfast was DELICIOUS - kudos to the hands that prepared (Sophia and Marie). Big up to Bobby, Jummy (not sure if that's how it's spelt) and Robinson who were very friendly and kept the grounds immaculate and safe. I appreciated that the owner, David, happened to be there as well. He greeted all his guests and took personal interest to make sure we were happy with our stay. Great guy! My only issue was with the internet which didn't really service the cottage and seafront area. But this being a quiet retreat it wasn't a big deal for me... was a good way to tune out of my devices and just... be. It's the right space for others seeking the same kinda escape. I already plan on staying again later this year. Highly recommended.

Quiet retreat in Negril
It is a quiet retreat, with only 7 guest rooms spread across a large area. The garden is lovely with many interesting trees and plants. What didn’t work for us was the bathroom and toilet didn’t have a door , so had to improvise with a sheet strung across the open doorway! Also , was expecting a sandy beach. Instead, access to the sea is across the road in continuation of the property, and through low cliffs. On calm days they can lower a ladder over the cliffs into the sea- we couldn’t experience thus because of rough seas. There is a beautiful salt water pool which is continuously fed with waves crashing into it- absolutely divine to spend hours in the pool without the hassle of getting into the sea! Another unique feature of the property is one can watch BOTH sunrise and sunset from the pool deck! The staff is lovely; special mention of Sophia who cooked us an excellent Jamaican dinner and daily breakfast.

We were hoping to have a place to go snorkelling and be in a relaxed place…There were no fish on the reef, the staff were pushy and rude about getting tips - they did not want you to go with another cab company than their own for instance, even though theirs was double the price - huge competition to get tourists to locations for kickbacks - breakfast was good - paid for a dinner and it was absolutely horrible - were sick after it. No water or absolutely anything provided in the room - smelt of mold and red ant infested - we got bit so badly which hurt and itched for days. The furniture was so uncomfortable and no provisions or anything close by. They advertised being a retreat with yoga and none of that happened. The view of the ocean though was spectacular.

Tingalaya's is a lovely Negril retreat offering both seascape and garden areas in one location. The accommodations are bungalows sensitively detailed with a unique fusion of caribbean, indonesian and islamic details nested in a garden of tropical flora and fauna. The Jamaican breakfast is superb with callaloo from the organic garden and fresh coffee every morning. Friendly and attentive staff. Ask for the masseuse ! Caters to large or small groups, families and individuals. A welcoming host with intriguing universal interests. Great place for rejuvenation.
