We stayed in #6 in the garden view villa and loved it. Very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. Really comfy bed, lots of hot water & the A/C worked very well. We were pleased to have the kitchen and used it for simple breakfasts and coffee although it is equipped for cooking full meals. Don't expect any salt/pepper, sugar, bottled...

Only 7 villa's of which 3 with ocean view, 4 garden view. At the end of West End road where no jerk center, rum bar or souvenir shop can be found is this little paradise. Friendly staff make perfect breakfast, lunch, cocktail or coffee. Pool and pooldeck is immaculate with shade patio. Pathway to cliff is elegant. Vlilla's could use...

Very private and beautiful place to stay, we got a an ocean villa and were lucky enough to have the resort to ourselves for 3 days! The staff were very nice and the food was good. We used the stove to cook breakfast and bought some red stripe and blue mountain coffee to enjoy at the villa. The location was...

Our 1st trip to Jamaica and while most stay on the beach we chose the cliffs. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of Idle Awhile. This resort really is a special place; small, intimate, relaxing and tranquil. We took advantage of the shuttle to the Idle Awhile beach property and that made it easy to experience the hustle,...

I cannot say enough about my time at Hide Awhile this past weekend. I first experienced both Idle Awhile and Hide Awhile about 10 years ago before the garden rooms, pool and outdoor cafe were built at Hide Awhile but the property was rugged and lush. The upgrades have made the property that much more beautiful. From the moment the...

There are three Idle Awhile properties in Negril, Jamaica. Each is very different in its own right, but their rustic elegance is custom inspired. The resort, perched on the cliffs of Negril is a rustic hideaway where couples can take the time to find each other in the solicitude of the sun swept surroundings. The pool is a good size...

This place is amazing. Simply amazing. I stayed in one of the ocean front villas for a couple of days on short-notice. There were no problems with the check-in and the staff is quite friendly and helpful. I stayed during the off-season, so things were a little slow around the resort, but it was quiet and relaxing.
