The Place to Stay in Negril
"We stayed at the Gatehouse Villa recently for a guy's trip to Negril and had a great time. The location is impossible to beat—right on the beach. And one of the best bars in Negril, Tony's Hut, a super quaint beach-side tiki bar is right there in your back (or front) yard, right on the beach. We spent many hours seated around the bar, feet in the sand, waves lapping on the beach, meeting many interesting people, both tourists and locals alike.
Grace Anne, one of the two regular bartenders, is a real joy—she takes care of you while you are at her bar, and makes sure you have a good time. Some of the patrons who we met while there had been visiting Tony's Hut regularly for years, coming by just to stop in and have a drink with their old friend Grace Anne.
Negril provides an authentic third world Jamaican experience (be prepared to be solicited to buy any and everything you could imagine, which can be a positive or a negative, depending on what you are into), that includes all of the local sights, sounds, flavors and characters. The staff at the Gatehouse helped us feel comfortable and always made sure we were looked after.
While this is not the experience for everyone, it's hard to deny the amazing value you receive—the almighty American dollar goes much farther here than in many/most places in the Caribbean. And whatever you want/need/desire is always no more than a few dollars away.
If you are open minded, adventurous, laid back, and like to have a good time, this is a great place to enjoy a Caribbean vacation."

"Our group ranged from 18 months to 50+, for a total of 9 people. EVERYONE had a great time both in Jamaica and specifically, at AFIMI. We were there for 8 days. Typically, by the 7th/8th day, it's about time to wrap up the vacation. Not this time. No one wanted to leave and we all wished we could have stayed another week!
I know this is a testament to the outstanding staff and amenities at AFIMI. Colroy, Nic, Fiona and Robert took extremely good care of me and my family. Each of them took the extra time to provide top shelf service and made us feel welcome - without being intrusive. We are still talking about the trip.
AFIMI is an outstanding property. We loved the SONOS sound system, the pool, the views, the fantastic food, etc. (We ate out one night while we were there and we regretted it). The best food is at AFIMI.
Everything that is advertised by AFIMI is accurate.
We normally like to go to a different vacation destination every year, but we are seriously considering returning to AFIMI - yes, it was that good!"

"We had an amazing time at The Big Grape! Juicy, Christine and Bentley were the perfect hosts during our stay. We are a family of four and it was the first time we brought our daughters to Jamaica and they absolutely loved it! The privacy of the villa and the accessibility to the shops and surrounding resorts and restaurants on the West End also the beach being a short taxi ride away make the Sea Grape Villas a perfect vacation spot! We are already booked for next year and plan on making this our annual family vacation."
