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
A friend and I visited Country Country in the off-season. This vacation was just what I needed...beaches were not crowded and the water was warm.
The property has very lush vegetation. Our rooms could accommodate up to 4 people. They were comfortable, cute and located in cottage style buildings. The staff was friendly and the management went out of their way to make sure that we were well taken care of. I would definitely visit there again.
Country Country is not a huge place but there are many locations up and down 7-Mile Beach in Negril at which you can party. I liked the coziness.
This place is just ok. I mean that in the kindest way. For $350.00 what do you expect? They are cute cottages that the internet doesnt work in and you have no where to cook anything. Some have microwave some do not. There is no air flow throughout the entire place. Until you get on the beach. The morning free breakfast is great. The beach is ok, but the security there doesnt do enough to keep the constant panhandlers from interrupting your day on the beach. Over a 100 times a day you will be bothered. Each time you get up and go into the water they will be all over you. When you get out of the water they are waiting there again. Between dope, massages, fruits, love bracelets, they will wear you out walking on the beach and even sitting in your chair at the resort. So the question you need as an answer is? Would I go back there and stay there again even if it was for free? And the answer is NO!!!! One last thing. On Saturday night from 7pm till 2am in the morning the music next door was so loud that the dishes were rattling, the walls were shaking and everyone on Sunday morning on the entire resort was complaining. Even the night time desk clerk. Not a great experience for our only time to Jamaica.
I love being on the cliffs in Negril but if you like the beach also do a half-and-half trip. We usually spend five days in one and five on the other. When it comes to the beach I always choose Country Country. Great little cottages and if possible get one that faces the beach itself and is next to the bar. The beach is roped off so that people selling their goods can’t get to you and there’s also a guard on duty. Make an exception for the meat pie vendor who comes by. Ask around and not far from this place is a good massage hut with reasonable prices especially if you do two of you at a time . Don’t be afraid to haggle for prices in this beautiful little town. There are many great restaurants a cheap cab ride away. No matter where you are in Negril, make sure that whoever picks you up has a red license plate which denotes being sanctioned by the government. Many others will stop and try to make deals with you but for safety reasons we always go in a red cab. And don’t be alarmed by the way they drive.
The staff here is friendly and helpful. If you have any doubts about where to go or what to do get a couple of opinions from staff members who are locals . This place has a beautiful view and the prices are reasonable .
Enjoy your stay and take advantage of local food. Get acquainted with the local people and don’t be afraid to try barbecue or whatever food is being cooked alongside the roads. These are families sometimes who make their living doing this
