Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Negril
Sad to leave the beauty of the Jamaican people, the warm water on my feet, the gorgeous sunsets and the girls on this trip. Also, J our fearless leader. He kept us in check and made it fun. I don't want to go back to a Canadian winter. Not quite yet. ...
... gave me an explanation and a tour and then left. He called me at 7 to check and see if I needed anything.
I even managed to find my way around the resort, mostly. Lisa had a massive suite. Danielle had a swanky room also.
We hung out in her room for a bit. Not much happening there as it's couples only.
Tomorrow we leave for home. ...
The sunshine felt nice after leaving so much rain. The staff at the hotel were all friendly and nice. I did notice the elevator area on the main level smelled quite musty. Dinner was adequate and there was a guy singing and playing keyboards for Repeat Guest Dinner night which we attended. He was pretty good. Although he doesn't understand mic distance so he popped a lot of "p"s.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa
Not So Great for a SANDALS.
I have been to 3 different Sandals resorts. This resort was for people who are more laid backor have not experienced at other Sandals the playmakers did not try as hard to keep everyone included in all the activities. couldn't even find a playmaker to get a beach volley ball game going. Food Was good . ONE EXCEPTION.The Bartender RANDY from the Main bar was absolutley wonderful!!!
9 times and going back again
We have been to Sandals Negril for the past 9 years and can't wait to get back again. We have never had any type of problems . Anyone who has not had a good time there does not know how to . The only bad thing I can think of is the beach is eroding , which they have no control over .
We spent our Honeymoon in Sandals Negril Nov 18-28, 2002 and absolutely LOVED IT!!! Everything was better than we expected and imagined it to be. We went there looking for a fun, yet relaxing environment and that is exactly what we got! The food was amazing, we ate all day! The variety of food and drinks is phenomenal. The service was wonderful, if you treat the staff kindly and with respect they bend over backwards for you. The resort is spotless and they take great care in keeping it well kept. The water is so blue and the beaches are to die for. There is so much to do on the resort and if you wanted there were so many tours to go on that they arranged for you. The entertainment was so great! The staff are all sp talented and there was always the occasional guest that would perform in the weekly guest/staff talent show. I would recommend this resort to anyone!!We loved it and would go back there in a heartbeat!
Sandals Negril - Great Resort - Poor Service
My wife and I stayed from Jan 31, 2003 till Feb 7, 2003. Everything was perfect with the resort except most of the staff at this resort were rude. We stayed at Couples, Ocho Rios a year ago and left there with almost all the staff remembering our names. At Sandals, Negril no one knew our names when we left. No hey mon or irie here, just rudeness. Not the Jamaica we experienced a year ago.
Went to Sandals Negril, Jamaica in April of 2002, and overall was a bit disappointed in the Resort. We are a middle-class couple in our late 20’s, and we don’t get an opportunity to travel as much as we would like, and thought this ‘advertised 5-star’ Resort would blow our socks off. Unfortunately, I came home thinking that I just dropped over $3500 for an average week in Jamaica.
Wow, I am amazed people write such good things....
We went to Sandals in Negril and I am amazed that people thought it was great! Don't even look at the brochures, the pictures barely coincide with the actual resort itself. The food was absolutly horrible, out the 100 choices daily at the buffet, only 5-6 things were edible. The people and staff on the other hand were great for the most part. We made quite alot of friends, the bartenders are the best there, very lively. There was good music also. The pool is freezing, and the rooms are small. White glove service???? And the off shore island that they advertise about, you can't even get there. So, don't go there!
My arrival at Sandals Negril was the beginning of a comedy of errors by the resort to numerous to list. We went to rest and recover from a major event in our life and was horribly aggravated by malfunctioning rooms, employee's rapping on the door in the middle of the night, a dive shop that treated us like children, food that didn't match the menu and concierge service that doesn't return phone calls. It's a buffet with cheap booze and a pool. I was glad to leave.
Randy the bartender was the only redeemable quality. He's outstanding!
Sandals Negril, a great place to stay
We stayed in Sandals Negril in August 2002. The place is nicely set on a good beach and the watersports are very good. It was not croweded and we never had to wait to use a hobie, sunfish or get a beach chair. The scuba diving, which is included, was excellent and one day we dived with Dolphins. The scuba gear used in the dive shop needs maintenance though and if you have your own bring it.
The Restaurants are good and serve different fare every night mostly a la carte. Lunch is buffet style and sumptious.
It was the first time we stayed at Sandals and we would consider going back to Negril or use other Sandals facilities based on our experience.
My husband and I chose this wonderful resort for celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. It was an absolutly perfect experience. Our room was on the ground floor with a small patio, it was only 10 feet from the beach! Food was great (Sundowners was our favorite), drinks were plentiful and we had no problems with the service. Anything you want is "no problem, mon".
Sandals Negril 2002
Sandals Negril is a top notch way to go if you want to be at an all inclusive resort. We took advantage of their 30% off sale and got a grand beachfront room for seven days for $4300.00 including airfare from Minnesota. That was for two by the way. The entire time we were pampered, there was plenty of excellent food and of course drinks. You'll love the coconut rum and pinacolada machines. All employees are extremely friendly and genuinely want to make sure you get exactly what you want. While your there be sure to take a few extra tours. I would recomment the Jolly Mermaid party boar/snorkling/ricks cafe adventure ($90per couple) and a basic shopping trip $40.00 pc shoppping and ricks cafe.
