Jamaica Villas Negril
Jamaica Villas at Negril
Villas Sur Mer is located in the town of Negril which sits proudly on the westernmost tip of the island of Jamaica, pointing directly to the Cayman Islands. The town gets its name from the Spanish “Negrillo or Negrillos” (Little Black ones) and it was named by the Spaniards in 1494, most likely as a reference to the black cliffs that face south of the village.
Another theory to the name is that the area was called Anguila Negra (Black Eel) because of the vast amount of small black eels that populated the waters, this they say was then shortened to “Negril”
Whatever the reason, Negril is a great name for anywhere. If you would like the complete history of the town of Ngeril, I would go and visit the Wikipedia site. Wiki
