Also at the resort are a 24/7 fitness center, swim-up pool bar, and nightly entertainment.
Rounding out the list at Number 25 is the Negril Yoga Center, which features rustic rooms and cottages surrounding the open-air, wood-floored, thatch-roofed yoga facility.

The beach is just across the way and offers the natural beauty of the Caribbean Sea. Nearby are Kool Runnings Waterpark, Negril Aerodome, and the Times Square Mall.
