Well Jeri, it would depend a lot on what night it was. Afterall, a Saturday night I might recommend Seastar for the show and party etc. My inclination would be to recommend you spend the day/night outside of Negril to get your feet wet elsewhere on the island. You could go to a lot of super areas like Bluefields, Treasure Beach etc. One special place I really like is the Ashton Great House outside of Black River.
I don't know the current cost per night but it was about $40 last time I stayed. beautiful pool. large expanse of farmland with animals. Dining Room and great food too.
BTW, I am traveling with a "newbie" from just outside Madison this upcomming trip as Gov. Walker is forcing him into retirement early!
Peace and Guidance.
