This hotels management is a JOKE!!!!
"We stayed at this hotel from the 1st of August until the 7th. Upon arrival the room was not prepared for guest to stay. It smelled OLD and MOLDY! The A/C was not working, the refrigerator was NOT plugged in and took 2 days to cool our drinks and the water pump was off. WE HAD TO GO OUTSIDE OF OUR ROOMS TO USE THE WIFI!!!! We were the only group at the hotel from the 1st to the 4th and when the 5th came, during the time of dream weekend parties, our vehicle was towed for being parked in the hotels outside driveway. This was because that particular driveway was considered apart of the 7 mile strip which was a no parking zone for the 5th-9th and it was the hotels responsibility to make necessary arrangements for their guest to park in the proper areas which we were not informed about. We had to pay $8500 JA to retrieve the vehicle and when we returned to the hotel that is when the hotel decided to open a side driveway that we were never informed about. When addressing the incident with the hotel management, the manger made no attempt to take responsibility after stating that this incident happened last year and was nonchalant in exhausting options to fix their mistake. The security guard was unprofessional and was hitting on me and my friends the whole stay there. And ONE of the cleaning ladies who mostly cleaned our room was miserable and unpleasant. Point blank she was RUDE! I will never stay here again or recommend this hotel to anyone. The WIFI signals DO NOT reach inside the rooms....you have to go outside to connect"

"This is such a peaceful, tranquil place. Located across the street from 7 mile beach, it's the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of that area. The Yoga Centre grounds are wooded and serene. There is an awesome hammock hut there that allows complete privacy for your respite and the food is quite good. The rooms are basic but clean and the staff is friendly."

"Tranquility surrounds you the moment you enter the gate at the Negril Yoga Center. We stayed in Casa II towards the front of the center. The only downside was the proximity to the main road into Negril which has a constant though not heavy flow of traffic. Also of the two fans in the room, one made too much noise to use while sleeping, and the ceiling fan was so slow that we felt the warmth of the tropics through the night. The Yoga classes (three per week included) were excellent. Challenging and well presented. The space for Yoga was excellent as well--open air, wood floor, and a view of tropical greenery. If I were to return I would ask for one of the rooms further back in the property.
The location is such that you can walk to town, walk the beach (your close to one end of the seven mile beach) walk to restaurants or catch a taxi down to the west end to the cliffs. Spectacular. I highly recommend the NYC especially if you enjoy Yoga and do not mind a little traffic noise as you sit in a beautiful tranquil garden basking in the tropical warmth that flows through the air and reverberates in the people. If you have further questions do not hesitate to email me."

A real find
"This place is a gem. It's nothing like a touristy beach resort, except for the fact that it's right across the street from one of the world's great beaches. It's a well-organized hodgepodge of lush vegetation, colorful cottages, and interesting people. The yoga offered there is professional, but not the kind of high-brow stuff you might expect at a yoga center. Class is offered just once a day, in the morning, leaving the rest of the day to continue what you started by sinking into the easy life of Negril -- sun, swimming, good food, good people. Negril Yoga Center isn't fancy, but it's a joyful place to take a vacation.
And that's way better than fancy!"
