After being away from my husband for three and a half months, we decided to take a four day weekend in Negro, Jamaica.
When you go to Bar-B-Barn you are not just a guest, you are part of a family; home away from home, singles, couples and family alike. Being a family run hotel that has been in operation for over twenty years, I know what it is to look for that personalized ...

My birthday dinner was the highlight of my entire trip. It was a candlelit dinner at Ivan's Bar at Catcha Falling Star Resort. The setting was so beautiful overlooking the water below the cliffs. As it got later in the evening the moon and the stars came out to glisten upon the water. The resort is tucked away behind the high gates ...

We dressed up because I really wanted to try the fisherman’s plate I kept hearing about that is always offered on the second formal night. It was good. We each got one and then split the prime rib. I’m glad we split the second entrée because it was also good and the fisherman’s plate wasn’t that ...

Dinner was good, and after dinner we went to Neptune's bar and had scotch, rum and who know what else. We people watched and laughed, and then we started chatting with a nice couple from NC. They told us all about the membership programs and booking the next vacation while still here. We said we'd check it out.

Historical Traveler Reviews Breezes Grand Resort & Spa Negril All Inclusive
Not worth it.
The food was not that great. Meat and seafood were tuff. Some stuff was ok. The beach was great and people were friendly. Service at the hotel not so good. We had a few things wrong and it took a couple of days to fix. Our room was not ready and was booked well in advance. Were promised a upgrade, but never recieved. If you go anywhere have plently of cash or travelers checks. If you go shopping be prepared to really be bothered especially in the craft market. This was our first time here. If we come back to Jamaica, we will stay in Montego Bay and not do the all inclusive. We will go out on our own.
Too expensive for luxury
We were very shocked when we seen our room very dated for luxury bathroom was old tile very bad I totally agree this would not pass Super 8 at home. The beach was beauitful only 10 second walk from our room. I cannot beleive this is a 5 star resort who rates these the locals? Im sure how they live this is luxury. I would call the Manaday Bay in Las Vegas luxury. OR a cruise anywhere. we definately over paid. we went with a couple who won their trip noticed quite a few couples won free trip. Live and Learn. THink Twice before you go.
We just got back from 6 Days at the resort. The staff was unbelievably nice. The food was great. The drinks were never ending. The 24 hour room service was prompt, and the food was always both delicious and presented well. Man champagne delivered to the room every morning, within 10 minutes of calling. Napoleon Brandy on the beach. Cuban cigars ( the only thing I paid extra for in a week). This was the MOST decadent week of my life. The clothing optional beach was groomed each morning. The guests were a sociable, but not in your face. The nightly shows were fun with great music, and lots of group participation. The Disco on Thursday night was wild, with some outlandish Pajama Party costumes. It was simply one of the best weeks that my wife and I have had in 29 years of marriage.
The Grand Lido Negril has a lot of positives, but people who are considering going there, especially honeymooners, should know about 2 problems. The first is that the buildings and rooms are nowhere near "luxurious." The second is that the main wedding ceremony sites are in or near the nude beach!
We picked the Grand Lido after carefully researching hotels on tripadvisor and other web sites.
We went to GLN for our honeymoon and stayed for one week. It was nice and we had a lovely time, but probably because we hadn't been on a vacation in 5 years and almost ANYTHING would have met our expectations. The resort was clean, the beach was beautiful and the staff was pleasant. The resort only allows guests over 16 years old, which was great for us - a nice quiet stay with no screaming kids to ruin our week. One side of the resort is "clothing optional," but we never ventured over there, so can't really comment on it. We had one of the luxury rooms, which was very nice -two TVs, two bathrooms, king-size bed, private hot-tub, balcony, mini-bar w/ fridge, etc. The food was OK - room service consisted of a few snack choices -hamburgers, nachos, etc. Most regular meals were buffet style, but there were usually plenty of entree choices and I was always able to find something I liked. The drinks were awful - I hardly drank at all (other than beer or wine) because the mixed drinks and daquiris were basically made with crushed ice and cool-aid - no fruit in them at all! The spa services were OK, but I could tell that the manicurist/masseuse was not a trained professional. Overall we had a nice time simply relaxing and enjoying the beach, but for the price that we paid, I think we could've had a much more luxurious stay somewhere else.
I just returned from the Grand Lido Resort in Negril, Jamaica. The wife and I were there for 1 week. Due to work related stress, we were in severe need of a nice, tropical, worry free vacation. I've been most places throughout the Caribbean and Mexico with the exception of what it's natives call "The heart of the Caribbean", Jamaica. Before I booked the trip, I read all the reviews I could find on the country. After careful consideration, we decided on this resort.
My wife and I just returned from a 2 week honeymoon to GLN. While it was very nice, and as others have commented th staff was awesome, and no tipping makes life easy, there are a few things to be aware of. We initially had
The Grand Lido Negril was fantastic! Our wedding was wonderful. Our photos were just okay but the video was really good. We had two additonal couples with us who also loved this place. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was great. If we return it would be in February instead of May as the rainy season has started. It was terribly hot and muggy causing too many hungry bugs but we were having so much fun we didn't really mind. Look for Captin Philipe and his "no problem mon" crew. He took us all over Jamaica and was a great guide. I hope to go back next year. I recommend flying from Mo Bay to Negril and back again. The road was flooded and very slow on our return trip. We could not fly back due to bad weather. Its worth the extra to fly and its a beautiful but short trip.
Want to go back ASAP!
Bottom Line: My husband and I spent 7 nights at the Grand Lido Negril and we don't have a desire to go anywhere else except back (and are currently booking for our one year anniversary trip). The food is incredible, with so much variety to choose from. The waiters, waitresses, bartenders, etc. are so kind and helpful and wonderful! The beach is breathtaking! If you get a chance, book Captain Philipe, tour guide, who docks his blue pontoon boat on the Grand Lido beach. He will take you for a sunset cruise down the whole west coast of the island or you can take a car tour with him to see the "real" Jamaica. Tip: Forget Dunns River Falls. Visit Mayfield Falls, which is always less crowded!
