Affordable Luxury: The Westender Inn, Negril

in #tourism11 months ago

One of the more remote properties in Jamaica, The Westender Inn is located about a 15-minute drive outside of Negril on the south side of the far western tip of the island. The Westender Inn. is the sort of place to go if you want to get away from it all, the Seven Mile Beach and the majority of resorts in the Negril area are sandwiched between other places with people everywhere. In contrast to your typical resort, there isn't much at all near this property except a few houses, the jungle and the sea.

While we visited, the sea was far too rough for swimming, thankfully there are a number of pools. The property is well maintained, it is split in half by a quiet road and there are a couple of restaurants. The price is right at the Westender Inn with garden view rooms costing less than $100 per night; it was rated as the best budget hotel in Jamaica.

Well-manicured lawns and gardens aren't often found at a budget hotel. There are some Deluxe Seaview rooms that go for a premium and this is a great place for large family gatherings and parties. I could envision a ReggaeSteem event here in the future as the place has an exclusive feel to it.

The seaside of the property is gorgeous, with tidal infinity pools, loungers, a seaside restaurant bar, and a small Inn-it has a 4 star feel to it. The back end of the property, where the cliffs are has a larger restaurant, cottages and is backed by a cliff. There is a football field-sized lawn and a nice freshwater pool, it's where you stay if you want to save some money and spend a couple of weeks in peace.

We didn't stay for long but I would definitely recommend this property. They maintain excellent ratings and I can best describe it as affordable luxury.

Would love to go back one day despite my 'experience'. That sea, I have never seen another like it.

No filter. And it was shot with the Canon 60d.

Woah, now that seems like a cool place. Never been up the west end that far.

I bet there’s some nice property up near there. Certainly wouldn’t be opposed to checking it out in a few months or so

Stop by Somewhere West, it's a cool bar and closer to town, similar setting but more kitsch. It's also next to the Cliff which is definetely worth walking onto if you can. Westender is more of a place to go to if you want to stay a week.

Sweet, but i would always miss the sand on the cliffs...

The place is not for singles unless you want to write a book or something like that

Yeah I’d imagine this is pretty far out west a ways. If you have a car or scooter, it’d probably be pretty irie. Quite private and a way from all the people.. Some people like those sort of getaways

(Not you and I, though)
