Things to See and Do While Staying at Ansell's Thatchwalk Cottages

Even though guests likely won't find a ton of recreational activities right at Ansell's Thatchwalk Cottages, that certainly shouldn't imply there aren't plenty of other interesting things to see and do during your time in Jamaica.

These cottages are backed up to the water, so the fact that it doesn't have a swimming pool is barely noticed by most guests who usually spend their time lounging beachside. Truthfully, even with access to a pool, many people have such a good time on the beaches in Jamaica that they rarely use the pool during their vacation.


Although there isn't a golf course at Ansell's Thatchwalk Cottages, you may be able to arrange a tee time during your stay. The nearest course is Negril Hills Golf Club, which is located just a meager trip off from the property, so it won't be trouble to plan on heading over for some rounds on the links. The course has 18 holes. The total length is 5798 yards, and it's been rated a par 72. If you're considering reserving a tee time, contact the course at (876) 957-4638 ext. 3614.
