Last year March tho, when we drove around the entire island, we stayed at BBB for 5 days while in Negril.

    I enjoyed it immensely. Out of everything, the peeps were the best thing of all. In particular, there was a woman who wore many hats who checked us in her name, if I recall, was Olga or some such Nordic like name. Im almost certain it was Olga. Do you know of whom I speak? Was she still there? Gots ta be the most hospitable hotel worker Ive ever met.

    Question for you what room were you in exactly? [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70402-thinking.gif[/img]

    Even tho I started a new job just recently literally last month Im going home month after next. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/bannana_purple.gif[/img] Some might recall last year was the first Id spent any real time in Negril since I was a late teenager. Suffice it to say, it almost swore me off Ochi. I fell in love with it.

    The sweetest part is that I managed to roll this trip into my job! Mercy!

                Re: Bar-B-Barn,For Real, and Catcha

                catcha is by far the best place I have stayed at while in Jamaica....we had one of the new two bedroom units Aquarius and it was top notch and worth every penny........

                have never stayed at for real but like it's location very much and marilyn's room was HUGE with a lovely balcony as well.....

                someone asked for links

                http://www.barbbarn.com
                http://www.catchajamaica.com

                For Real's website seems to be down

                      Re: Bar-B-Barn,For Real, and Catcha

                      We got a bit of a discount at Catcha as we took multiple units.

                      But even the small rooms - Pisces and the Geminis - are very nice. They have AC, fridge, microwave and comfy beds and bathrooms, Pisces has an outdoor shower, there are large sun decks that are private to the units, hammocks, and breakfast is still included in the rates. Those are under $100 in off season.

                          Hi All,
                          My family and I are trying to decide between BBB and Catcha for this july2008, The 2 bedroom at Catcha seems ideal except for the fact that we are traveling with two children ages 5 and 14 and not sure how far from the beach (sand) it is. BBB seems nice but the kitchenette at Catcha really caught our eye, with two kids eating out gets pricey. So if someone could 1. Tell me about the beach in reference to Catcha 2. Tell me if there are any kitchen rooms at BBB and if not what would be the best room(s) to get for us (me, wife, and 2 boys) 3. If there are any other suggestions in this range of places to stay in Negril. We are trying something new and just going the relaxed route this time, no big hotel chain but the place must be safe, clean and have air conditioning.

                          All responses would be greatly appreciated.

                          Thanks,
                          Jay

                            Keeping a 5 year old away from the unfenced and very high cliff edge would NOT be a vacation to me. Save Catcha for a kid less trip and do BBB.

                                i think BBB has a suite

                                and bandanna had a nice apartment at Negril Beach Condos

                                i think the beach is best for the kids

                                i want to stay on the cliffs but i'm not ready for my 11-year son to take up cliff diving

                                i like BBB 'cause breakfast is included - full breakfast

                                the rooms are close to the beach for potty breaks etc

                                i usually get room 118 or 119 which is close to the bar so if my son needed a nap - he could nap and i could sit at the bar - 10 feet away

                                plenty of things to do on 7-mile beach
