Lazy Dayz

Lazy Dayz is a relatively undiscovered, cute and clean hostel located directly on the seven-mile beach of Negril. The friendly Canadian proprietors stay on-premise, and their caretaker, Danny, a local, is full of advice. There are a handful of cabins and a couple of private rooms. Ours had three beds, a private bath ensuite, outdoor shower, and a kitchenette for U.S. $90/night. The best part about it, besides the great location, are the abundant assortment of decks, porch swings, hammocks, and porches throughout the grounds. It is a great place to relax at night and socialize with friends. The only downfall was the blaring music from the property next door--a group of booths advertising everything from Jell-O shots to massages targeting spring breakers. Overall, we enjoyed staying at such a charming place that fit our budget.

Alfred's Ocean Palace

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by SeaTurtle on April 19, 2005

Alfred's Ocean Palace is located right off the sand, towards the west end of Negril's Seven Mile Beach. They offer pub-style food (Jamaican and American) and also have a bar, beach volleyball, and live music some nights.

It is a casual place. A great alternative to Margaritaville for burgers and fries, they also have Jamaican seafoods such as conch. The portions were generous and the food was satisfying, and I loved my big lobster-salad sandwich. We wish we would have found it before the last night of our trip!

The Hungry Lion

We lucked into finding this cosy and romantic spot in the West End of Negril. It's accessible by cab from Negril (it cost us 300 or 400 Jamaican to get there), and it's definitely worth the trip. Atop a little gallery/store, this artsy restaurant has a variety of vegetarian food and some seafood dishes too. It is nicely decorated, and we had the deck to ourselves. We enjoyed freshly squeezed juices, great specialty cocktails, Stamp and Go (codfish fritters), and all our entrees were incredible - seared tofu with peanut sauce and perfectly done fish. They even brought us some tasty pumpkin soup on the house. The service was the best and most attentive we encountered in Jamaica. We couldn't believe that this place was so empty, and we recommended it frequently. For an ambient and freshly prepared, healthful meal, you should definitely check out the Hungry Lion.
