Run away to Foote Prints

Foote Prints on the Sand was an excellent place to stay in Negril. The food in the restaurant was excellent. The spa was lovely and I received a nice massage. Overall I would stay again and the location is perfect. Right on the strip of 7 mile beach in Negril. The hotel has a bus that can take you downtown or on excursions. The free wifi was fantastic.

the staff was great, but the hotel need some work! One of the reason I pick the hotel was to use the internet and it didn't work.

The Best Deal In Negril, Hands Down!

If you are planning on traveling to Jamaica, don't cut yourself short and lock yourself away behind the doors and security guards (who are, in essence, hustlers) at Sandals or Beaches. Why pay so much when, just a couple minute walk down the beach, you can find this island gem for such reasonable rates? Experience the real hospitality of Jamaica by staying in a Jamaican owned, Jamaican operated establishment. The hotel itself is wonderful. Beautiful gardens encompass the property. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel, the waves of the crystal clear Caribbean washing up on the steps. The rooms are cleaned, and fresh towels and bed sheets are provided daily. The rooms are very well designed, including vaulted ceilings and balconies in each room. The people are as friendly as they could be, willing to bend over backwards to ensure you are accommodated in every way. I could continue typing reasons you should book your stay here, but I digress. Simply put, you will find no better value in Negril than Foote Prints.

Clean, Great Location

Stayed here for 10 days and it was nice. Not a 5 star hotel but reasonable price and good clean room. Linens and towels were changed everyday, bathroom cleaned and our floors were swept and mopped everyday too. I left a $2.00 tip for the maid everyday, $5 last day. Ask for a second floor room and you get a huge vaulted ceiling. AC worked very good. 19" TV but we had Starz and 3 other movie channels, networks and news. Most rooms have a balcony or porch, we sat on our porch and played spades when it rained. Nice staff and great location on the beach. There has been some beach erosion since our last visit to Negril. Their beach is small but we had chairs everyday 2 feet from the water and 30 feet from the hotel. Get your chairs early, they have 2 palm shade huts on the beach. The waves lap against the steps in front of the restaurant while you eat or drink your Red Stripe or rum at their bar. Everyone from the all inclusives walk by Foot Prints, alot of people watching. Get the fresh fruit smoothies for $3.00 at the bar, melon and the banana pineapple were best. Ask about the price before you order! Take a float if you like floating, we buy the cheap Wal Mart ones and give them away when we leave.I had a $50.00 one hour massage in the grassy area between the building near the beach, I recommend it, it was great. If you like beach walking, Negril is the place and Foot Prints is right in the middle of 7 mile beach! The Jamaican vendors on the beach are nice people and just trying to make a living, we always buy at least 2 -3 souvenier towels etc. to help them out. If you don't want to buy just say "no thanks man" and they will usually leave you alone.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We ate at the hotel restaurant several times, but also dined at Sheretas about 50 yards down the beach. Good reasonable breakfast and lunch. We walked to Ozzies accross the street for jerk chicken several times and ate patties from the patty man on his bike "he has the best patties" and from the patty shack next to Sea Splash hotel a little further than Sheretas. Margaritaville is a little further if you want a cheeseburger, $13.95. There is also a small store directly accross the road from the hotel. We always ask the taxi driver to stop on the way and buy our Appleton rum for $10.00 a bottle, it's $20 at the store. I mix it with Tropicana fruit punch, $2.50 for a 2 liter. You can but a bottle of fresh cold fruit juice from the juice guy on the beach everyday for $4 - $5, worth it. I get orange.Go to Vern's fruit stand on the beach for fresh fruit, she will cut it and bag it for you ready to eat. Only a short walk left of the hotel, you may see some fruits you have never heard of before. She is very nice and is supporting 8 kids, we take gifts to her and her kids every visit. Not there on Sunday, she's in church.

Great value with kitchenette!

We reserved 2 kitchenette rooms which were a very nice size with 2 double beds each. 1 room was directly oceanfront room H7, had a great view and nice size balcony. Hotel also has a convenience store across the street. The staff was great and very accomodating.

Never again!

I would not recommend this hotel to anybody. They were still checking the room at 7pm. This hotel has not been up dated since it was built in the 80's. The room were dirty and uncomfortable. Spent as little time in the room as necessary. Some of the staff were very helpful, some were dishonest. The only good thing iwas the location.

Paradise Found !!!!

The staff here are wonderful- I have stayed twice, and each time it is like a welcoming party when you arrive. The second time they even remembered me by name. This hotel truly makes you feel as if you have a safe, secure, friendly and gorgeous place to return to time and time again. The restaurant is attached, food is around $10 USD per meal and very good. The beach is empty during the slow season- you could never wish for anything more than a private beach in the Caribbean! I am a female that travels alone, and I am confidant that this is a very safe place to travel.

"Cosy mid range close to the water"

This was an average mid range beach room. What I liked the best was the included small refergiter & microwave in the room & the restaurnat where your table could be 6 feet from the lapping waves, great at sunset.
