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
I really can’t say enough about how great this place is! We were warmly greeted upon arrival at the front desk by Monique who treated us like family whom she’s missed for years...wonderful since it was our first meeting. Our room was ready and we were politely assisted to room 508; a cute little free standing cottage with a king bed, queen sofa sleeper, large closet, in-room safe, nice sized fridge, flat screen TV with cable and tiny little bathroom. There was plenty of space unpack and place all of our stuff in drawers or on shelves, could have used a few more hangers in the closet, but not a big deal. There is an iron and ironing board for use if you want to ruin your vacation. We loved the location of our room as we were right across from the pool and the WiFi lounge, so we did get a weak signal that worked fine if we were sitting out on our porch, which we did every night. The porch was large and had a table and chairs which we loved for morning coffee; there was a coffee maker (4 cups) and a tea kettle that we used more for hot water. We bought coffee in town and used our French press. Breakfast is included and can be delivered to your room. Highly recommended! The beach is clean, well laid out, plenty of shade from trees or umbrellas. Beach security is top notch. Super was our maid and she was lovely! Andre the bartender was helpful and friendly, we didn’t buy many drinks at the bar but he was always helpful in filling our cooler or our mugs with ice, there is a large drink cooler with cold water available to use throughout the day as you needed. Audley, Teri-Ann and the other service staff at the restaurant were always providing service with a smile. Beach towels are available at the front desk. We had a great time teasing with the front desk staff and Monique about the return of the beach towels since apparently they don’t always get returned...we can think of better souvenirs but obviously other people can’t. Monique checked on us, almost daily, to make sure we were happy and that our needs were met. We have stayed at several hotels up and down 7 Mile and this is now one of our favorites! We really enjoyed the cozy atmosphere, the warm and friendly staff, the cleanliness of the property, the beauty of the foliage, and the location on the beach is great for walking to restaurants and bars either beachside or roadside. The restaurant has a limited menu, but the food was really good! Everyone raves about the banana pancakes, but the French toast was my favorite! We stayed 13 nights and have another trip booked for 9 nights in March...can’t wait to return and see our new found friends again, they really made this last trip special for us and I am so happy that we tried a new place to stay! I want to again thank Monique and her staff for a wonderful stay...there was a young lady at the front desk, I can’t remember her name, she has a smile that lights up a room and a sense of humor that is fabulous! I should also mention the security at the roadside gate is pretty awesome as well. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay in Negril!
Paradise, with the sweetest staff on the planet. Very clean and neat, the cottages are spacious up to date and immaculate. The pool is perfect, the location is perfect. Loved our shaded porch, in less than a minute we were at the bar, restaurant, beautiful beach. Very clean, thanks to Lee, who gets up at dark thirty to make everything perfect for his guests.
Country Country's own cab service picked us up at the airport, Eardley our driver, was graciously sweet and knew we were tired., and punchy and he put up with us being silly all the way to Country Country. After we were greeted with a big hello and hug from Monique, resident manager, whom I had emailed with all of the questions one would have. We then met Lee, who took the luggage to our cottage, and treated us like royalty, he was able to answer all of our questions. From where to eat (only ate off property once the entire week, Margaretville one door down on the beach) to what is within walking distance. The vendors that wondered the beach (beef patty $2.00 very good) are entertaining. We felt very safe and carefree the entire stay. Thomas and Marcia and the entire security staff are awesome. We walked 2 to 3 miles every morning on the beach and on the street. No problems at all. What a beautiful spot, just about half way of 7 mile beach. Awesome front staff, Nadia and her cleaning staff were awsome, awesome dining staff, Christine and Andrew are awesome bar staff, awesome cottages, They made us feel like family, they are so glad you are their guest, and it shows. It was hard to leave them when it came time to say goodbye. You can't help but fall in love with the island and its people. Side note, we never needed Jamaican money, used only US dollars. Sweet upstairs open air, free wifi lounge over restaurant. We also used their cab service for short runs and some travel, stayed at resort 99% of the time because it was so relaxing. Just what the Dr. ordered. No worries mon!
Country Country if you are reading this you are missed, and thank you!
We travel quite a bit to all inclusives and boutique properties and this is definitely one of my favorites!!
Jamaica is such a great place to Vacation and specifically 7 mile beach in Negril known for the awesome long, white powdery sand and clear calm beautiful turquoise water. Jamaica is a beautiful country with super friendly people, beautiful places and delicious food.
Country Country is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We’ve been here a few times and it never disappoints. We started visiting when the restaurant was on the beach (many moons ago).
The cottages are adorable. I love the boutique feel of the property. We stayed on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool with a view of ocean in one of the new rooms - 521. Super great room, love the large shower and balcony. The new rooms are super fresh. Honestly tho I like the stand alone cottages as well as the new rooms.

Love and Thanks to Lee, Wayne, Thomas and definitely Andre for always taking good care of us. And special love to The laughing girls, love you two - Terri Ann and Christine. And of course last but not least - Monique, she is awesome and she always makes sure all is perfect. Thank you so much mi friend!!
Till next time, soon come!
The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff very friendly, helpful and professional. The food at the restaurant was presented and tasted excellent. The cottages just feet from the beach. Location is the best.
I had a cottage near the office, which was near the street. The noise from the traffic sound like I was still in the city, Not to mention the loud music from Marguritaville. Lots of greenery which means loud noise from insects all night long. Need more lights, night time the paths are too dark. Also be sure to double check your room account before paying it. I don't think I'll return.
