CocoLaPalm is set on fine sugar white sand next to the tantalizing turquoise waters of the Caribbean. This hotel in beautiful Negril, Jamaica has a distinctive architecture with open courtyards, and has two swimming pools (one courtyard and the other beachfront), and a large whirlpool surrounded by tropical gardens. The resort is not all-inclusive, however there are many different and tasty restaurants in the area. This hotel is perfect for couples and small families. Be sure not to miss the complimentary cocktail parties that happen every Monday night. Fridays are for beach parties with a bonfire and live band.
I had a wonderful time at this place, the man at the bar made Pina Coladas taste like ice cream, you can be comftorably drunk. If the beach vendors are bothering you, security will peacefully and professionally ask them to leave. The security offers good advice, listen to them. If you're looking for a place other than the hotel, and maybe even some adventures/chouffer, check out Miss Sonias restaurant down the road to the West, talk to Cheff Harry (Mr.Johnson). I was actually out there during the pandemic, so not very many people really. I'm much more of a mountain skiier than a beach goer, but I had these people made a positive impact on my expierience, especially going alone. I wouldn't go alone again, unless it were all inclusive. If your searching for a fishing adventure, its a great idea to line something up in advance, and go in the morning (before sunrise and before sunset) are the best times. If you're white, bring swim shirts, you will thank yourself if you wear those from day 1. The hotels breakfast is great and affordable. If you plan on doing a solo adventure. I highly advise you don't, go partnership style at the bare minimum (You'll need the back up). As a man from Nebraska, and pilot, please don't disregard this advice. But otherwise all really good hotel.

Nicest staff who learns your name and likes by day 2. Special shout out to KiKi, Romeo, Martino, Dillon, Jayda and many others, thanks for making our stay special. Excellent beach location with shade and plenty of sun, calm waters! Three large sand/eagle rays swam by us while standing in the water. Great location and very safe to walk the beach for a bit of exercise, drinks, shopping or snacks. Beach vendors have delicious fruit juice, pineapple rums cakes and meat patties at good prices. Resort food was very good and across the street there are a few good spots for jerk chicken & grilled lobster! Definitely worth the trip from Montego Bay to Negril.
