With less than eight months to go, you should start looking into your hotel options for the Reggae Marathon. In Negril, you will have several options to choose from. You have all-inclusive hotels, hotels on the beach, and hotels on the cliffs.
- The all-inclusive hotels are located on Seven Mile Beach. At an all-inclusive, you get everything that you might need for your trip- food, entertainment, and drinks all included with your stay. If you don’t want to have to worry about going off the property to eat, this might be the option for you. There are some hotels that are for adults/couples only and some that are more family oriented. So if you are looking for an all-inclusive, be sure to find the one that is the right fit for you and your needs.
- On Seven Mile Beach, there are a lot of smaller independently owned hotels. Some have meal options included in your stay others do not but have a restaurant where you can buy a meal or have it added to your room so you pay when you check out. I have stayed at one the smaller hotels on Seven Mile Beach for all my trips to Negril. And because I have stayed at the same hotel for the last ten years, I have gotten to know the staff and they treat me like family. (And I missed them dearly in 2020.)
- Finally, there are hotels up on the cliffs. A lot of the hotels on the cliffs have a pool and an area where you can take a ladder down to the ocean or take a jump into the water. They are further away from the start/finish line of the race, but don’t worry, there are shuttles that will take you there the morning of the race.
Whatever hotel option you choose, you can’t go wrong. All will give you a wonderful Negril sunset.

Keep on running and I look forward to seeing you in December on the beach.
