thanksgiving in Jamaica

Posted Dec 5, 2014
Pros: Beach location
Cons: The ability to tip the staff when charging things to your room
Location: literally on the beach
The staff, location, and food were what made our stay at Idle Awhile such a memorable time. It was my 7 month pregnant wife, 2.5 year old daughter, and myself for 6 nights at Idle Awhile and we will absolutely go back.

Outstanding resort on the 7-mile beach

Posted Oct 3, 2014
Beautiful, relaxing, fun... Room was magnificent in every way. Powdery white sand beach was right out our back door. Staff...friendly, fun, helpful. Close to evening entertainment We will ALWAYS be coming back to Idle Awhile.

Wonderful Stay despite Construction Noise

Posted Sep 21, 2014
Pros: Location, beach, setting, staff, attention to details
Cons: Finish the properties next door improvements, not in Idle Awhiles control.
Yes, must have missed the fine print when booking on the noise of the major construction next door to the property, but Nothing the folks at Idle Awhile did wrong. I have stayed here before and also at their sister property Hide Awhile and would not stay anywhere else. The BIG resorts are not for me, like the freedom of choice and experiences off property allows.

Great value

Posted Sep 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
This quaint hotel is perfect for exploring Seven Mile beach. The suite was only a small amount more, and definitely with the upgrade. It had a very large living room, kitchenette, bed near the patio, hammock on the large patio, and dining area outside. The bedroom is air conditioned, and the bathroom is very large with built in dresser.

Was Perfect

The hotel room was very clean and comfy, we had a nice little terasse where you can just relax and read, and just a few steps to the beach. The beach was clean with clear turquoise water. Easy walk to other restaurants on the beach. 15 Minutes drive to Rick's cafe.

Open air delight!

Posted Jul 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
Loved my 2nd floor room with terrace and open air concept. The room had no windows, just screens and wood shutters. At first I thought I would not like it because it was hot and I assumed there was no air conditioner, but there was A/C that made the room more than adequately comfortable. Sleeping at night was like sleeping out in the open and was very relaxing with the sounds of the ocean, birds and nature. Liked the lush vegetation on the grounds and the short walk to the beach and beach side restaurant. The Jerk Chicken Pasta was so good, I almost ordered it again for breakfast.. Definitely would go back and recommended for couple looking for a intimate, quaint setting.

Beautiful property and people

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Everything but especially the staff.
Cons: would like to see more of a liquor selection at the bar.
Cant say enough great about this place, it exceeded all of my expectations. Beautiful rooms, wonderful staff, peaceful and lovely property. They treated my family and I like we were part of their family and truly happy we were there.
