Somewhere West was absolutely amazing! Amazing view and looks just as breathtaking, maybe even better, than the pictures on the website. The staff was accommodating and super friendly—obliging all of our requests. Somewhere West will be my first stop when I am in Jamaica again.
Walking through the gate into the lush garden felt like coming home. Fresh, delicious food, innovative cocktails, spotless rooms and absolute tranquility make this place special, but it’s the warm, heartfelt hospitality of Angi and her crew that make this place truly exceptional. This was our second visit, and once again we left with full hearts, new friends and deep gratitude to everyone for their care and service.
I heard about the Taco Turzday, so I called for a pickup from the beach. When I got there, the property was down a small hill,pretty far out on the West End road but on the water front. The bar was definitely small and intimate but definitely had lots of charm. After getting a Stripe at the bar, I ordered a fish and shrimp taco off their board and they were AMAZING! Both had a wonderful mixture of spices, fruit/vegtables to give it great flavor. The service was prompt and Ms T kept the drinks coming. They had a small bad playing live blues, so it was a great atmosphere. So I'll definitely make it a normal stop on future trips!
We stayed at Somewhere West for a 2-night anniverssary weekend. Angela and her staff were always helpful and the room (a suite) was perfectly equipped. Nothing fancy inside, just clean and comfortable and colorful, with everything you needed to cook, clean, iron, etc. Except a coffee maker. No problem, as the staff would make it for us gratis. The sunset views are phenomenal and overall just a great mood at the place. Highly recommend, will be back.
This place is one of a kind. Words can't express how beautiful Somewhere West really is. I went with 6 friends and everyone had plenty of space with beds and room to spare. You are a bit removed from the center of Negril, but it is an easy and short 10 minute ride to town. We considered this a good thing. The property itself is breathtaking with dramatic sunsets every night. The rooms are awesome. They are spacious and comfortable with private balconies overlooking the ocean. I have been to Negril many times and stayed at all-inclusives every time before this. But i will never stay at another all-inclusive after this experience. You get a chance to feel the real Jamaican culture staying here while also feeling totally safe. Do you yourself a favor and stay here for the ultimate Jamaican experience that no all-inclusive can match.
My parents and I recently returned from a few days at Somewhere West. We really enjoyed our stay. Tanesha and Adrian were very helpful during our visit, they were everywhere. Pros: Clean, beautiful views, quiet Cons: $20 taxi ride each way to town, make dinner reservations require 24 hour notice, no TV Suggestions: ask guests ahead of arrival for dinner reservations and provide transportation (fee) Overall my stay was amazing. We met the owner Angela on the last day and she was very engaging. I will be back with my friends soon.
This is my third time at Somewhere west and it keeps getting better and better. Angie and her workers are excellent and they have now added some really fun events throughout the week! Highly recommend Somewhere west to anyone willing to experience “The Real Jamaica.”
Where can I even begin when writing about Somewhere West? My partner and I recently spent a week in Negril and our two experiences at Somewhere West were both highlights of the whole week. I noticed the Taco Thursday event on SW's Instagram included complimentary pick-up from anywhere in Negril which really helped sweeten the deal as it is about a $15 cab ride from the beach all the way up to the south side of the west end where SW is. Coordinating a pick-up with the owner was really easy (especially texting through What'sApp) and the shuttle arrived right on time. Upon arriving at SW my partner and I quickly realized we were in for a treat. The property is south facing and features a gorgeous salt water infinity pool. The restaurant offers a refreshingly modern and creative cocktail program and the food speaks for itself. Although the price for a single taco was on the higher end, the experience of dining there and the quality of ingredients and presentation more than make up for the cost (I kept thinking to myself, "take my money, I want to support this amazing place.") Especially in a vacation destination like Negril which is so dominated by the big resorts, supporting these mom and pop businesses is so much more gratifying. However, many of the locally owned establishments can leave a lot to be desired in terms of overall level of service. As an American tourist it can be off-putting to wait over an hour for food at some local Jamaican restaurants. Everything about the service at SW is more aligned with what the average American might expect. The feeling of patronizing SW retains the lax attitude of any other locally-owned establishments in Negril but with a much stronger emphasis on personal service and attention to detail. This all adds up to a feeling of being at home in a place far from home, an elusive and difficult to achieve task in a place like Negril. The other big piece for me was the feeling of serenity. The atmosphere at SW is so vastly different from the hustle and bustle of the beach scene. I love interacting with Jamaican people, even the beach hustlers who are just trying their best to make a living, but let's be honest, vacation is supposed to be a relaxing experience and I could hardly get through five pages of a book while sitting on a beach chair without getting approached about ganja or parasailing or horseback riding etc. etc. Somewhere West is a wonderful escape from all of that. I haven't felt that level of true, deep, soul-relaxation in a very long time (if ever!) Angie and her partner have built an absolute hidden gem in Negril and they are bringing a boutique experience at an incredibly affordable price point. I have never written a trip advisor review in my life but now, a few days since getting back to the daily grind of city life in the US, I feel absolutely compelled to spread the word. If you are planning to visit Negril, a visit to Somewhere West is an absolute MUST DO!
My husband and I stayed at Somewhere West for a week in late February. The best feature for us was the balcony facing the sea and we spent many hours there and never missed a sunset. The room was cute and clean, had good air conditioning and comfortable beds. We also enjoyed the salt water pool with waves crashing into it. It is located way down on the West End but we had no trouble getting anywhere as staff would call a cab or we would just start walking and one would come by. We appreciated the peacefulness of the location after a day of running around. We were the only guests for most of our stay and the owners were gone due to a death in the family so it was probably quieter than usual. Taco Thursday was fun with a bunch of people in the restaurant and good live music. The staff was super nice and responsive.
We stayed at Somewhere West in early February 2019 after a week long stay on the beach. It is such a peaceful and beautiful property with an amazing view and beautiful gardens right on the sea. I was really impressed with the tile work in the rooms - we stayed in Indigo Sky, a studio apartment with a full kitchen and beautifully decorated tile work all around. The staff were very helpful in setting up my new laptop with their free wifi which was always working. I have stayed in other properties in the deep west end where water pressure was sometimes a problem but at Somewhere West we had great water pressure at all times of the day, along with great hot water. We very much enjoyed their swimming pool and the view of the sea from our veranda. I highly recommend Somewhere West and will definitely be staying there again in the future.
