( not giving away my secrets ) .always comfortable.. our housekeeper has a magic touch to make it right .. we are regular and hope to continue being here every year the same weekend. The staff at idle awhile has always been very helpful in keeping us happy and accommodating our wants

My husband and I were staying at skylark and decided to walk down the beach to Idle A While for dinner. What a night! We were absolutely blown away by Carlton's service. He made excellent recommendations and was courteous and charming the entire time. The food was incredible. I swear the chef never misses a beat. Always consistent. We highly recommend the restaurant if you are staying nearby and want to venture out.

My family just returned from idle awhile. We booked a 5 night stay and were in 3 different rooms. The oceanfront room, oceanfront suite and Jr suite. All 3 claim to be air conditioned but the ocean front suite only has a unit in the bedroom. One of the fans was broken and the kids were quite hot. Other than that the rooms were beautiful and clean. There was an on-site wedding the weekend we were there that without warning, we were moved from the beach Friday afternoon and large tents took up the entire beach area until Saturday night. Fortunately we had an excursion or we would not have been able to have beach or chairs that day. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The kayaks and paddle boards were great to keep my very active son busy. The grounds and beach are kept very clean and it was comforting to see security sitting there around the clock to keep us safe.

The best beach in the Caribbean, is in Negril Jamaica, on 7 mile beach. AND if you want a better, more personalized experience, you should check out Idle Awhile Beach. The room price is a bargain, and you won’t be paying for everything you don’t want. When I’m on vacation, I want to do what I want, when I want to do it. The staff took great care of me, the room was really nice, and I will definitely, be back. Go to those other resorts, if you want to get up at 6am, and claim your beach chair. If you want someone to put out your beach chair, and get service on the beach, stay at Idle Awhile. I will also add, the place very clean, they are taking all the precautions and are open for business, no worries about Covid!
