Kadine is one of the best chefs on the beach. She makes this amazing chicken curry for us every time we visit her restaurant, even though we haven't had the opportunity to stay there. The coffee here is also delicious.

I have stayed at this hotel twice. The location is amazing. The rooms are nothing to brag about, but you are yards away from the beach. The breakfast package that is included with the room is very minimal and they charge for coffee by the cup. You can rent a fridge for 5 bucks a day. The Reservation process is...

If you like casual and relaxed and everyone knowing your name, this is a wonderful place. We have stayed here more than 20 times over the years. We have had all the family and used multiple rooms or used Madge's rooms across the street when we wanted privacy . We have brought kids. No kids. We've had weddings, bonfires. Land...

From the time the Security Guard, McCoy met our Car as we drove into the yard 12 hours later than we were supposed to arrive (worst flight ever) when everyone else was in bed to the time we left our Jamaican Home we felt right at home and safe and comfortable. We had 1 of 2 Upper Beachfront rooms with...

We stayed at donaldsons for our honeymoon from February 3rd thru February 16th and we had a fabulous time! We were in the beachfront top cabin and the views were spectacular! You don't have to leave your porch to see the sunset! The beach here is the best spot in Negril for sunbathing and swimming. We brought a big raft...

I have been to Donaldson's close to 20 times and it is the most relaxing place I've found. Madge's restaurant, up by the road, is fantastic and eliminates the need to go far. And, the Inn Ting on the beach serves breakfast and lunch. When I leave home early the morning, I know exactly where I'll be at 4 pm...

Truly a Jamaican gem right on the beach in Negril. Far enough away from the music venues to be quiet at night yet close enough for a moonlit walk down the beach for some live reggae. Rooms are always clean and the best bargain on the beach. Hot and cold running water, AC if you need it, refrigerators available for...
