4th trip in as many years to CocoLaPalm! Had a great time, as usual. The staff is tremendous and the location is the best on Negril beach. I have been traveling to Negril since 1985, so if you have any other questions, let me know. Weather in May will most likely have clear mornings (get out early) and cloudy afternoons with rain showers. It is the beginning of their "rainy" season. The humidity and heating of the day creates the rain. That is why tings are so green, mon! Enjoy your trip! We are frequent travelers to Negril in June/July. Not once have we wished for more sun and we love the sun and the beach!

CoCo Weather and Rooms

Postby travel.tripper » Mon Jan 09, 2006 10:35 am

tpon: thanks for the info!

seattlebrett: thank you too for your insight. So with it being the tropics, we figured we'd see rain. Do the occurrences of rain increase from May on? We've just booked for CoCo LaPalm and cannot wait!!!!

We have a choice between a jr. suite king upper level and the beachfront jr. suite. Which is better? We'd like to be able to sleep at night, and I bet the beachfront would allow us to sleep with the ocean, but does it get noisy there from tourists, bands, etc.? I know the jr. suites are in octoganal rooms, but I can't tell if the beachfront is the same. What's your opinion on the two rooms?

Thanks again -- oh! Are you going this year?

travel.tripper: we always stay in a beachfront upper JR. Suite. They have a few "beachfront" jr suites. They also have 5 rooms on the other side of the beach pool that are feet away from the ocean's edge. The room numbers are 728-732. They are recently remodeled rooms within the last few years. We have stayed in the room above the beach pool. It was kind of like having your own private villa!
The weather is a bit unpredictable to give you an exact expectation. But most often the mornings will be clear with clouds rolling in the early afternoon for a shower or two. Things usually break up in time for a nice sunset! It'll be warm, that is for certain. Remember to bring bug repellent with DEET. Around sunset the sand fleas can be quite active.

Thanks for the room info!!

So you don't think the rooms you mentioned are too noisy? We'll try for them.

We really like the tropic weather, so I'm sure it'll be okay with us. I've heard about sand fleas, ick! I'll definitely bring along some outdoor's off with deet as the bugs love me! Maybe if I just don't ever shower....

I wonder if when we get there we could just ask to see a couple of them. Okay, last question. Is the 526 room octogonal like the other jr. suites?
