The following alphabetical list of all of these establishments is now complete (to the best of our knowledge) as of August 2009.
We have also appropriately categorized them in our left drop-down & pop-out menu.
If there are any missing from our list below or not properly categorized in the left menu, please inform us so that we may include or correct them.
Mouse over any of the resort names below to pop out some basic information about them, especially those whose names are lined out.
We have even listed the names of enterprises that we know to be out of business and linked them to an information page which states that they are now defunct. We did this so that old time tourists trying to trace them down can quickly learn what happened to them.
We also have an information page on any enterprise's old name that has been renamed. It explains the rename and routes those seeking information on that particular place to the information page about its new name enterprise.
Negril's oldest beach resorts are nearest to downtown because they were built in the 60's and 70's when jet air travel began which allowed the town to become popular with monied hippies and vacationing tourists. Gradually later, the larger all-inclusive resorts of Negril were built farther north on the beach and in the Bloody Bay area where the beach land was still available for their development.
Negril's cliff resorts are almost all older than those on the beach and are located on its cliff oceanfront all the way around to Mt. Pleasant. The cliff resort and bar / restaurant enterprises up there still present Negril pretty much as it was before its heavy tourism came to be.
The resorts in Negril are primarily located on two sides of its small downtown area.
- Negril's beach resorts are on Negril's 7 mile beach, up north from downtown along Norman Manley Blvd.
- Negril's cliff resorts are located to the west and around south up its cliffs road (this area is called the West End because geographically, it juts west of Negril's downtown).
- Negril's Villas are located in various places along the beach as well as along the cliffs. They are also located in various places inland (primarily on the land side of its beach road and its cliff road).
- Negril's large all-inclusive resorts are all located about 4 miles and beyond from downtown along the beach road which is called Norman Manley Blvd.

Owners, Managers and Patrons of All of Negril's Enterprises
All encyclopedias rely upon experts to provide them with authoritative and true articles about their subjects and this video encyclopedia is no exception. However, the articles that we use here are in photo and video form, so the experts whom we must rely upon to produce them are Negril's enterprise owners, managers and their patrons. After all, who is better quailfied to provide good visual information than these folks who have valid, first-hand knowledge about each of Negril's resorts, restaurants, clubs, shops, road stands, attractions and activities?
Therefore, we here request Negril's enterprise owners to record for us a brief digital video welcoming people to their enterprise and describing its attributes (preferably with them and some of their staff and / or their patrons in it). This will humanize their enterprise to the public by being a very friendly and inviting way of encouraging people to come to Negril for their vacations.
Other Videos and Photos
Enterprise owners (and their patrons) may also provide us with separate additional videos of some of the unique, interesting things that occur within their enterprises.
