Disabled visitors -- BEWARE!
My girlfriend and I have mobility issues, and we chose to stay at Lighthouse Inn 2 when visiting Negril for a "destination wedding" because the website showed a man in a wheelchair on the beach and advertised a 'wheelchair holiday", and we communicated with someone there who assured us that staying there would be easy for the disabled population. Truth be told, the room was accessible, in that the shower was walk-in and there was a ramp leading to the front door; however, the toilet wasn't raised, the bed was very low to the ground, and the fans, which didn't have working remotes, weren't within reach.
We were there off-season, so the restaurant was closed. Apparently, this meant they had NO amenities for guests, as I was told that to even get bottled water I had to walk to the front gate across unpaved, uneven paths (again another reason this isn't good for a "wheelchair holiday") where I would have to catch a cab to a local market. Again, this "Inn" didn't even provide water or have any for sale, let alone anything like a mixed drink or good food that was available at the resort Catcha Falling Star, which is where we changed to after realizing how unfriendly to handicapped guests Lighthouse Inn 2 truly is.
Lighthouse Inn 2 was uncomfortable, barren, and unfriendly. The only time we saw whomever was tending the place was when she brought over a bill, accompanied by multiple shirtless, snot-dripping children and three near-feral dogs that were always underfoot and blocking our wheelchair whenever we made the long trek from the hot cabin to the road where we had to provide ourselves with whatever local transportation stopped to pick us up. We waited by the side of the road for over 10 minutes before we got a ride, the first time we tried it. No one from the Inn offered to assist, or was even to be seen. We were never offered any opportunity to see the beach or the lighthouse by the staff of Lighthouse Inn 2.
This was truly a horrible experience, and I highly recommend any disabled visitor to not be lured in by the lies on the website about it being perfect for a "wheelchair vacation". Save yourself the trouble and go to one of the resorts -- Catcha Falling Star was great. There may be a step or two, but the staff who is always around will gladly help you up or down, and also will bring you a cold drink instead of telling you to take a cab to get a simple bottle of water.
Very disappointing false advertising here. Buyer beware!
