Its name may connote the countryside, twice, but make no mistake: Country Country Beach Cottages is all about the beach. Specifically, Seven Mile Beach, where the property is located. Negril’s most famous attraction makes a stunning setting for these tropical abodes, all of which themselves are located among tropical gardens, on the beach side. From your front door, you’re just a short footpath away from the sun, sand and Caribbean Sea.
And that’s where this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner really shines. The weather is nearly always beautiful, and those generous seven miles – well, six and a third, if we’re being literal – mean that there’s a towel-sized space with your name all over it. Fit in as much sunbathing as time allows, grab a Jamaican bite at the restaurant, or try a catamaran cruise, to the beats of reggae. All that’s missing is the perfect fruity cocktail – good thing that Country Country’s also three doors from Margaritaville.
Your new One-Bedroom suite is complete with a dining area and separate living room with a fully equipped kitchenette, including a sink, a microwave, a refrigerator and storage. You’ll also have a bedroom with seating and a bamboo king bed, plus a full bathroom that houses a walk-in shower. Extra touches include a sleeper sofa and large TV.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at Country Peppa’s Bar and Grill. The first emphasizes Jamaican favorites and old classics, the second, light bites (think fresh wraps and salads) and the third, whatever delightful special the chef has cooked up that day. Care for a fruity drink? If you can’t find one at the bar or at one of the myriad neighborhood watering holes to strike your fancy, Margaritaville is just three doors down from the hotel.
Set in western Jamaica, Negril is a classic Caribbean beach town that’s best known for housing Seven Mile Beach, which is exactly what it says (well, almost – it technically measures just over six miles). As a guest at Country Country, you’ll be right on this shoreline, not to mention three doors down from famous Margaritaville. Tons of other restaurants and bars are in the area, as well, if you need some more choice in the way of purveyors of fruity drinks, or would rather eat, or jam out to some reggae music. Water sports are also readily available on certain parts of the beach, including parasailing and scuba diving.
How to Get There
We booked to stay at Country Country for 6 nights the last week of January. Upon landing in Jamaica on Monday night we had a message to call home ASAP---to find out my father was dying and would not last until the end of the week. When checking in to the resort we told the clerk checking us in that we had to find a flight home and would not be able to stay the whole 6 nights. We found a flight home on Wednesday and so we had to check out early and could not stay the final 4 nights. When explaining all this to the management in hoping to get those nights refunded back to us---they did not seem to care and would not reimburse us anything for those remaining 4 unused nights. Which was too bad as now that the funeral is done and we are ready to go back and finish our vacation---we will NOT be going back to this resort.
And by the way---trip insurance does not cover this scenario !!
PS---watch out for their so called free breakfast. What they don't tell you is that you only get one item for free. If you order 1 scramble egg to have with your French toast, you will get charged $5.00 for it. I feel they should tell their customers this when they order breakfast--not wait until they are checking out and then give you the bill for what wasn't explained to you!!!
Stunning location on the 7 mile beach. The cottages are very comfortable. The staff are wonderful - always helpful, friendly and welcoming. Everything is very clean and secure. We had a memorable stay over Xmas. Thanks to all staff at Country Country.
We needed a last minute replacement hotel on Seven Mile Beach. We met the Manager, Monique, and she showed us a room and booked us for our remaining 4 nights in Negril. The rooms are quaint and clean and comfortable. We had a fabulous view of the ocean from our balcony. Rooms include a free breakfast which was always delicious. The staff is friendly and accomodating. Velma at the front desk remembered my name and always greeted us with a smile! Will definatley return!
We loved our stay here! Couldn’t recommend this more highly! The cottages are perfection the windows open right to the breezy beach and you can basically remain barefoot your entire vacation! The staff was wonderful, when my luggage got lost they went above and beyond to help me track it down! The vibe was really wonderful and we can’t wait to go back to this same place, it was absolute paradise !!!
From the reservation, to check in, the delicious breakfasts, tidiness, awesome staff, security, location.....EVERYTHING was beyond excellent! You can't go wrong staying here,
Monique and Gabi in the main office are extraordinary, as well as the rest of the staff!
Yummy drinks, gorgeous garden views, short walk from room to clean beachfront
Many days, we left out belongings there at our chairs and the staff took great care of the items. One day, it started raining and Thomas made sure to grab our towels and place them in a dry area while still holding our spot
Balconies were perfect for evenings of playing UNO together, perfect lineup on the tv channels! Nothing short of excellent
