Nice quiet rooms, lovely gardens. Friendly, helpful staff. Well-stocked convenience store, restaurants, shopping, watersports steps away. About 1/2 mile from the roundabout It's become a little pricey in the last couple of years.

Pros: the grounds are pleasant and the staff is very nice, Kuyaba also has a good location on the beach. Cons: Kuyaba is...

I visited Kuyaba as part of a destination birthday celebration. My friend and I arrived very late due to delays with our flight and we were immediately put of by the rude reception from the security guard. He stated that he wasn't made aware of the late arrival from the front desk (which was closed) and could not verify the...

Hi it looks like you took a lot of time to type your thoughts on your recent stay at Kuyaba. One thing comes to mind: If your stay was Disappointing, why not report any issues staff members, so that it can be easily rectified? No front office complaints, nor housekeeping complaints.

Okay here goes. A year ago I stayed at Kuyaba for the first time in January 2015. I stayed in Rustic tree, the laid back relaxing atmosphere is what I love!! About this place. However I was totally disappointed when it came time to taking shower. Personally the most important thing for me is a bathroom with warm shower. And...

Hi and thank you for taking the time to write an honest review. We can definitely understand the need and want to take a hot shower at any time. In the past, we had 2 intermittent water issues. We do operate with partial solar, so the boiling switch would be turned off at a certain time of the day so...

The food at this restaurant was the best we had in Negril. I had the Lobster and Red snapper. I am definitely going back before we leave. The service was very good and everyone was so friendly. Our table was on the top of The restaurant and it felt like we ate in a treehouse

We often go to the restaurant. Great prawns, decent escovitch and lobsters right off the grill. We usually stay in a condo way down the beach but were laid over last year and had to move out of our condo. After a bad experience at another budget place further down the beach, we moved there and stayed there a couple...

The hotel has a lot of potential. But the following needs improvement; 1. Check in process is horrific. The practice of requesting a USD30 key deposit is unheard of. An additional safe deposit fee of USD100 is required. Again a world first. 2. The rooms have no bottled water. 3. Beach towels are in short supply and staff seem nonchalant...
