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
enjoyed everything, will return again. Excellent staff, cottages are lovely. beach is beautiful. value and price point is great. felt well secured, everyone was helpful, food was delicious. Convenient location
This resort is super cute, with authentic Caribbean styled multi-colored cottages, and is located right on seven mile beach. The grounds are immaculately kept and the sounds of nature (tree frogs and crickets) were wonderful. The resort, is a bit dated in terms of appliances, towels, and some other things about the actual units, but it is highly functional, relatively clean, and comfortable.
The major issue I encountered was the mosquitoes' access to the rooms. The windows have thick shutters on them, and still allows for bugs to get in. No one told me upon check-in that this would be an issue. Nor did anyone advise me that there was a mosquito vapor unit in the room for my use. I found this out after night 1 of being eaten alive, while the front desk clerk gave the other clerk a very sarcastic look while I was explaining and showing them all of my bites. I thought that was a bit unprofessional. I was sold an "all natural" bug repellent product for $8.50 that didn't work at all. There was a power outage issue for about a day and a half, but the staff was awesome in their efforts and attempts to resolve the matter, and made accommodations for affected guests to be moved temporarily, which helped. The power outages weren't a big deal to me at all.
Aside from the mosquito issue, my stay was absolutely wonderful. The free breakfast was a treat and the food was great! The bartenders were fantastic, as were the beach security teams. Housekeeping was great, but one of them kept leaving the bathroom shutters open, which invited yet more mosquitoes. The one housekeeper that stands out as an absolute gem was Hyacinth. I think the other housekeeper was unaware that I was having mosquito issues, and maybe why she kept leaving the shutters open. I have to mention Zelma at the front desk. She was just an angel! On the day I left, I felt so appreciative of how I was treated and how much I enjoyed my stay, that I hugged everyone that had been of great service during my stay.
Thank you Country Country Cottages Team!
Rooms were clean and the resort was quit with each room having a porch. The bar and restaurant served good food and drink, with beach BBQ and seating some evenings. I will be returning this summer to visit again.
Resort grounds were beautiful, the 1 bedroom cottage we had was perfect for what we needed. It was roomy and very clean. The staff came every day and refreshed towels, cleaned up sand, etc. Definitely recommend this resort.
For a last minute give away it was great. Pro's location, friendly staff. Con's card machine was down in restaurant section, unsure if breakfast was complimentary and also the wifi is only in one section.
