My husband and I spent a week at Citronella, our third visit, during low season June 11 - 18, 2016. I thought I'd concentrate on describing the rooms in this review. We stayed 6 nights in the Roundhouse, and moved to the A Frame for the last night. We were the *only* guests at Citronella the entire week. No exaggeration....

Thank you so much for your beautiful review of Citronella.It has always been our goal to keep Citronella as private as possible because that is how we like it to be as well.Sometime you might want to try the Cave House,it is equally as nice as the other houses and tends to be the cooler house in the hotter low-season.We...

My wife and I have been to Citronella several times and recently I went solo and stayed in a smaller private cabin not facing the ocean but it was comfortable clean, it had everything I needed to relax and explore the bars, restaurants and eateries that we so enjoy. Cathy and John the owners are welcoming, helpful and good hosts....

I almost didn't want to review this because I want to keep Citronella as our secret, however, we enjoyed our stay so much just have to share. If you aren't the "all inclusive" type of traveler Citronella is perfect. Quiet, low key, island life. You won't find a better deal for your own cabana with private access to the water....

We are all so happy that you did this review of Citronella...thank you...You are right about Citronella not being the all inclusive type of place...Citronella is not meant for everyone and we find that only adventurous style people are most content at Citronella.We do hope to see you again sometime in the near future...cathy

Just came back from a 10-day trip to Jamaica of which we stayed our first 4 days in the Conch House at Citronella. Citronella is perfectly situated on the cliffs and it seems each house in the compound has it's own private access to the pristine, turqoise water. All the places to dive or jump from suited us perfectly, and...

I have been going to Negril for 20 years. I have stayed at several cliffside locations (from private homes to more well known 'resorts' like Tensing Pen). This was definitely a favorite, and we will be back! I am just sorry it took so many years to find. Clean, quiet, peaceful. Beautiful property with well-cared for landscaping. Multiple easy-access points...

Staying at Citronella is a surreal experience. Leaving this property after five days was like waking up from a magical dream. Looking back at the pictures I find it hard to believe we actually stayed at a place that perfect. The views are amazing and the grounds make you feel like you're in your own botanical garden. We were in...

Our family celebrated Christmas at Citronella! We had the most memorable, glorious, time in this perfect place. It was perfect because of the people. All staff were so kind to us.

We've traveled throughout Jamaica over the years but Citronella has the most breathtaking beauty of any piece of land on the island. Perched atop the cliffs of Negril's west end, one is given the space and privacy to create their own Caribbean dream. Wild nightlife? No. - try the beach. Crazy party and a hoppin' bar. No - go down...
