This place is a 2 to 3 star place. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The rooms are slightly dated but they meet the needs. The hot tub wasn't working but who cares. You are on a beautiful beach. You will not find a better place for breakfast in the morning. You are literally 5 feet from the waters... More

We have just returned from a week at the foote-prints hotel following days of uncertainty if we had done the right thing (after reading other reviews) and gone for this as opposed to an All Inclusive hotel. Our worries were unfounded and the only real issue that we had was reliability of the water supply for showering after long and... More

My S.O. and I spent a week at Foote Prints to unwind and relax before gearing up to go back to work in September. The flight down was great despite the tighter restrictions at the airport, actually in retrospect all the hassle we received at the airport was nothing compared to the problems we encountered at Foote Prints. First, our... More

I arrived in Negril for the first time to a nightmare. I had booked a room in the Footeprints and was beyond disappointed. There was one woman that was the security, bellhop, and maid. The room was unlike any of the rooms the website shows. It smelled of mold, the tv did not work, the soap in the shower was... More

This isn't a good hotel at all: At random times during the day, the water, electricity and cable TV stopped for 5 min to a day. The jacuzzi was only in the website picture: it was out of order six days a week. Sometimes, the shower was broken, and the door lock needed repair. There was no protection against mosquitoes...

I have just returned from holidaying at Foote Prints with my friend. We had a good time. The hotel is nice for what it is, but is clean and tidy not like others are saying. Our room was cleaned each day and sheets changed, bathroom cleaned etc. The food was great, only one meal I did not enjoy due to... More

I recently stayed at Foote Prints for 2 days and found it to be simple, clean, and a great deal. My room was very clean, had A/C and TV, a view of the water. The beach is pretty small, but it works. The restaurant/cafe is cute, in the shade, and overlooks the water. This is a great place to stay... More

This place from the outside doesn't look as nice as your all-inclusive resorts (ie Sandals, Beaches) but it is really not that bad. The staff is extremely friendly, especially Micheal and Tashini. Micheal was extremely helpful in finding good rides for us to go places and helping us to see what we need to do while in Negril. Tashini was... More

The place is like a cheap roach motel. The people at the desk were rude. I will never stay here again and don't recommend you do either. It may be cheap, but you get what you pay for....Nothing! There are so many beautiful places to choose from there. Don't choose this one. The pictures are very decieving!
