We spent 2 weeks in Jamaica: 1 week at Little Bay Beach House and 1 week at Clubhotel Riu Negril, and our first week was hands down the best part of our vacation. The Beach House is spacious and even though there is no AC we found it to be the perfect temperature from about 5pm to 9am. During the day we spent most of our time either on the deck watching the little goat pack meaner down the road and the occasional child biking home from school, or we were at the beach either in front of the cabin or farther down as there were no limitations to where we could park ourselves. There is some seaweed on the beach and in the water, but it's easy enough to find a clear spot on the beach, and also easy to avoid the seaweed (we wore water shoes to avoid stepping on a sea urchin). There are little cabins just 2 minutes down the road where it is rocky at the water and concrete has been poured so you can stand and look out over the ocean. The owner there had no problem with us coming on the properly and using the little staircase off those rocks when we felt like floating on our floaties in the deeper part of the ocean.
Yes, there were some mosquitos around, and some sandflies, but nothing outrageous. We learned to put on a little bug spray around 6pm if needed and to stay covered if out by the water in the evening.
Annette is the lovely lady who takes care of the property and who is expert at making your stay extra special. She made the most wonderful breakfast everyday, with tons of variety despite the fact that I have multiple dietary restrictions. She also tidies up every morning after breakfast and is very clean and thorough. You can pay to have her come back to the cabin to cook you supper. We chose to have her come 3 times (each time we requested lobster which she provided caught fresh that morning, and multiple delicious side-dishes many of which were traditional Jamaican dishes). The other times we cooked for ourselves using the groceries we got at the market on our way to the cabin from the airport. This was no problem as the kitchen is fully equipped.
I was worried about safety when first booking this spot but there was never a time that we did not feel safe at the cabin, or safe to leave our valuables there as you can lock up the cabin and the gate.
We are so very glad that we chose to spend a week at the Beach House! If you like quiet, secluded and beautiful, delicious meals and friendly local Jamaicans, you will not be disappointed.
