Sunset At The Palms

Negril, Jamaica

The hotel

Nestled in 10-acres of delightful tropical gardens, this award-winning eco-friendly resort is a sure-fire winner for adults looking for a peaceful and pampering retreat. Begin your holiday the minute you step off the plane with the Club MoBay VIP arrival service where you will be fast tracked through the Jamaican Immigration and Customs meaning you will be on the beach sipping a cocktail before you know it. Stay in exquisite wooden bungalows that sit atop sturdy stilts, so you feel like you’re in a tree house — albeit a luxury one, with polished wood floors, sleek showers with body jets and airy balconies furnished with a relaxing day bed. There are three different dining choices from the extensive International buffet at Palm Grove Restaurant to the creative Caribbean fusion menu at the à la carte Lotus Leaf. Guests rave about the spicy Jamaican ‘Jerk’ chicken that’s served at the Beach Bar and Grill during lunch — don’t miss it! The pool is perfect for lounging in the sun, or it’s a short escorted walk over the road to the celebrated Bloody Bay, a spectacular stretch of white sand beach fringed with picture-perfect palm trees.

Just returned from two weeks at sunset, loved every minute. Really unique resort, with great staff and fantastic food. I know some of the negative comments on the road you have to cross may put some people off, but please, ignore these as it's only a short walk to the beach and the crossing guards are really lovely and always look after you.

The staff were very accommodating and super friendly. Beach is beautiful and it is so nice they don't leave their chairs all in a row, but instead ask you where you want to be and get them out for you when you get there. Food was fabulous and also the drinks! Housekeeping was the best! They are so on top of things and never had to ask for anything extra! It was all there! The rooms are the best! Not your typical hotel. Absoluetly loved everything about it! Read less

This all-inclusive resort is perfect for the chill couple that wants to get up early and enjoy the day. This place feels like home - not like a hotel. The small bedroom huts give the place a unique vibe with lots of privacy and the veranda attached has breathtaking views. The food is wonderful - the themed buffet nights are delicious. All vegan food was labeled, which was a load off my mind. The beach is incredible. The chairs stay stacked until you need one, which leaves a lot of space to actually see the trees and landscape. Every other hotel beach was just PACKED with chairs, and we find that a real turn-off. You don't feel closed-in at all. The staff is warm & friendly. They feel like family. It's hard to say goodbye. We hope this resort stays SMALL. That's the reason we go. It's quiet and laid-back, but with all the amenities that we have come to expect with all-inclusive. Please, don't ever change!
