    Lovely place !!! Friendly, professional & helpful staff...I recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle to relax in a quiet country setting...but yet to close enough to take a gingerly stroll right down the road to the Caribbean Sea Shore...then have a very nice meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) at Kirby's Canoe Bar/Restaurant, or just drink a Cold Red Stripe beer while chilling out with a perfect dip in the sea water or sunbathing in a beach chair. Cheers !!!!

    Judy’s Place is really nice, a bit of Shangri La slightly off the beaten path of the Negril oasis. Here you can kickback, take an outdoor (or hot indoor) shower and then tug on a beer or G&T with friends and feel at home. And you’ll meet a lot of them, from the staff to the guests. When I was up for it, I’d have 1-2 girls one-third my age to go out with at night or to the beach.

    I loved this place for a few reasons. As a lone traveller I met many great people here. It has beautiful surroundings and a lovely dog. It’s a bit far from the beach if that bothers you but it’s possible to get a taxi

    Judy House was exactly what my friend and I needed for an easy hostel in Negril. We felt safe and were within walking distance of many great spots. We were told Negril is not very safe, but we felt fine in this location. Route taxis are needed to get to most tourist spots. Bring your own towel.

    Very Good

    I was pleased with my stay. Staff was kind and atmosphere of garden was peaceful and pretty. Room were very clean yet small. However, I agree that there should have been a better price( cost was too high for the value & atmosphere) and there was no staff to clean bathroom after shower which should have been included in price as well as food service, free continental breakfast. Security was excellent. I loved the pet dog. He was the most loving staff of all and beautiful eyes and spirit.
