Home Sweet Home Resort3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Pros: -Decently priced -Walking distance from lots of bars, restaurants and shops -Great for sunbathing and swimming on the cliffs -Snorkeling right in front of hotel. Its not as good as being on out the reef (you need a boat to get there) but you can jump right into the water in front of the hotel and see quite a few fish. We even saw some stingrays and found some sand dollars -Working wifi and safes in rooms Cons: -Dated facilities that could use some cleaning up -Staff is very slow and not very helpful if you want recommendations -There is breakfast and a bar, but expect to spend a decent chunk of time waiting for food and service. The staff seems nonexistent a lot of the time. Overall we would stay there again. Its not as upscale as some of the bigger resorts, but that's not what we were expecting. It is a nice relaxing place to stay and its in a great location. If you're looking to have everything you need all within your hotel, this might not be your place, but if you want a decent clean and comfortable place to stay while you venture out in Negril, this is definitely a great option.
We loved our visit and plan on returning next year. Home Sweet Home is pleasant and affordable; an unpretentious gem on the cliffs. The staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. Everyone made us feel like we were "home." Tina, Monty, Chris, and the rest of the crew--thank you. After reading one of the existing reviews, of course, there may be a few minor inconveniences, so if you can't deal with them, book a 5 star hotel and good luck. We enjoyed meeting other guests from around the world and didn't hear one complaint. I would highly recommend Home Sweet Home to others looking for a relatively quiet (it is the cliffs after all) and laid-back vacation experience.
Great price, great service, great location! Trip went with out a hitch staff was very friendly and accommodating to special requests. 5 Minutes away from Ricks Cafe. Alot of restaurants and bars on same street. I would definitely stay there again.
This has become my favorite place in the world. My friends who work here are the reason why. My Jamaican queens who spoil me EVERY time I come home, you are truly appreciated. Monty...your cooking fills my soul and I love our conversations. Thank you Charlie for providing an unpretentious paradise on the cliffs, it's definitely Home Sweet Home. P.S.. word on the street...The staff deserve a raise and more consistent pay. Be a good hotel owner, make it happen.
Yes, this place is aptly named because basically it's like being at home...you're required to do things for yourself because these folks clearly aren't motivated to do much. The good: Nice and private, quiet, good views and snorkeling on cliffs, walking distance to good restaurants, working wifi, check in, bed quality. The bad: Other than someone raking in the morning, most staff were to be found lounging around and doing nothing while work clearly needed to be done. The groundskeeping/landscaping was awful, with dead and dying plants all over the place and very neglected. Our room had no hot water so we used another vacant room to shower. And when I say no hot water, I mean none: no water at all coming out of hot water faucet. The people above us from England were also without hot water, and they were very upset not to have been warned about it, to say the least. And management has obviously known about it for a long time, as can be seen in other earlier reviews. They knew what the problem was, promised to fix it, and did nothing. We also left some items behind and spend a few days at another hotel where the Home Sweet Home driver (Chris) would go by daily. He refused to drop off our package unless we paid him, so we had to cab it back to Home Sweet Home to pick it up. They clearly have no interest in return customers. We ate one meal at this hotel...don't bother eating here either, food was nothing special. If you do go here, I strongly recommend that you get something in writing, promising you a room with both hot water and a clothes dresser, as that was also missing. And if you do not like dogs barking, bring ear plugs. They let the dog across the street bark until 7 a.m. one night. Brutal. If you want to pay cash and tip for everything, you might get good service here, because that's all they seem to be interested in. And that's a shame because it's such a good location...recommend complete management overhaul.
We stayed at HSH for 3 nights. The staff was very friendly and professional. The grounds were clean and maintained. The food in the restaurant was tasty. If you are expecting a 5 star hotel, this may not be the place for you. We enjoyed the sunsets and relaxation that HSH offered.
Another return stay at HSH, and another perfectly relaxing and enjoyable stay. Housekeeper Nadeen, manager Tina, and resident grounds/maintenance/fix-anything guy Dino were fabulous as always. In my mind, when you stay here, you feel like you're at your "home away from home". With two dozen trips to Negril under my belt, HSH will continue to be my go-to place for a long time to come.
Home Sweet Home will not disappoint...from the stunning views, to great cliff access for swimming, snorkelling and lounging, you have everything you want. Rooms are beautifully cleaned daily. The pool is well taken care of. The property is pretty. From the time you are greeted until you leave, life is more than good. Highly recommended.
Charlie is your friend to find, nice to meet wonderful person around our world...... Lovely location overlooking an incredible sea and searching the end that never finish's. The resort talks by it's self. Absolutely wonderful. Complimenti from Leandro. Italy
Spent 7 days here for my 50th birthday and I couldn't have been happier! I'm sure I was a handful at times, (Appleton rum, Appleton rum, LOL), but the staff here is top notch!!! Always pleasant and always aiming to please. This was our first non-all inclusive and we were so happy to do it on our own. Home Sweet Home looked after us just as well as any all inclusive. All you had to do was ask. They were awesome! Monty and Tess were perfect dinner hosts and Tina was always sweet and patient with my tedious questions. Chatting with them on a beautiful breezy afternoons was like hanging out with old friends. Real people, real Jamaica! AI's have nothing on them! My personal homemade birthday cake was OUTSTANDING!! Thank you! If you want to be waited on hand and foot, don't come here. If you want to enjoy peace and tranquility and be treated special..... this is the place! And, before I forget....Nadine (? I hope I got that right!) Our housekeeper was exceptional!!!! Best housekeeper ever! And I really mean that! Thank you!! Overall, no complaints. Security, plumbing, beds, views, pool, cliffs, swimming in the sea... all get 5 stars! Can't wait to return.... see you again in a few months!
