“A relaxing holiday set on a gorgeous bay in Jamaica.” My wife and I throughly enjoyed our stay at Le Mer. The owners, Karin and Coleman were attentive and accommodating throughout our stay. For a reasonable price Karin picked us up at the airport and took us to the Mega Mart in Montego Bay to get supplies for our week long stay. Karin, for a reasonable price also took us into Lucea for a needed stop at the aTM, to beautiful and exciting Mayfield Falls (quite an adventure); Half-moon Bay and our transfer to Negril.
Le Mer is ideal for a quiet getaway in a tropical setting. It's location on the ocean is great for snorkelling in the sheltered bay in front of the property. Ocean access is easy with a ladder or you can jump or dive right in! The coral is in good shape and recovering. We saw some smaller fish, octopi and cuttlefish but no bigger fish.
There are also two nice beaches at Bull's Bay, a 10 minute walk up the road. You can pick up a cold red strip after your swim at a small shop nearby! This beach is safe and used by friendly locals.
The bedrooms are huge and have a private balcony. The ensuite bathrooms have generous amounts of hot water provided form solar energy. Spacious living areas are available and a great place to meet other travellers. The mosaic tiled bar separating the kitchen from the other common areas proved to be a favourite place to sit and chat with new friends. The tables in the dining room are quite unique, look handcrafted and are a comfortable place to dine with a wonderful view of the sunset over the Bay. The large, well kept pool was a favourite spot to catch the morning breeze and a refreshing dip at any time of the day!
This place is ideal if you are travelling as a larger group as you could occupy one or both of the two villas.
The dogs which provide security are friendly and we enjoyed their company. They are well behaved and can be tethered if you are uncomfortable around them.
In summary; great value for the money, a safe, secure environment; at a Beautiful location
