Sunset at the Palms Resort and Spa, Negril

Ever wanted your family to stay in a treehouse? Here's your chance! Many rooms here are in treehouse-like cottages amid towering royal palms. The beach is located across the street, along with activities including non-motorized watersports.

This hotel is a favorite with nature lovers and has a long history of ecotourism. Negril is bordered to the east by the Great Morass, a swampland rich with peat, a substance that was considered as a possible energy source in the 1970s when scientists studied the feasibility of mining this resource. Environmental concerns about the possibility of damaging Negril’s famousSeven Mile Beach put a stop to the mining plans.

During the study of the Morass, these researchers lived in cabins in Negril. Today, Sunset at the Palms (formerly Negril Cabins) utilizes those original structures plus several new buildings and operates as a resort for those who want to combine the luxuries of a hotel with the natural experience of camping.

Families enjoy Swiss Family Robinson-style accommodations in cabins perched on stilts. Lush grounds are filled with indigenous Jamaican flora and fauna and dotted with colorful hummingbirds. The hotel offer tours to the Royal Palms Reserve, located directly behind the property.
