Negril definitely has something for everyone when it comes to finding the ideal place to stay. From couples-only, all-inclusive resorts, to hip, inexpensive independent cottages by the sea and exclusive villas, there's an option for every taste and budget. Low-season and high-season rates apply here as much as, if not more than, the other tourism centers on the island. Some establishments increase rates in the middle of the low season for special events like Independence weekend at the beginning of August, when Jamaicans from "yard" and "abroad" flock for a torrent of nonstop parties that last for days on end.
Accommodations and food are divided geographically by Negril's roundabout, which can be used to distinguish between the properties on either side of Norman Manley Boulevard from those on the other side of town along West End Road, also referred to as "The Cliffs". Within each price category, the accommodations are organized from north to south.
Seven-Mile Beach starts at the mouth of Negril River and stretches the length of Long Bay as well as Bloody Bay farther north. Long Bay is fronted by a multitude of small hotels as well as large all-inclusive resorts on its northern end.
