TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
This was our fourth trip to Jamaica (first time in Negril). Until now, we have always stayed at a Sandal's property (Whitehouse most recently). We were a little nervous about switching to a new... Read more company, but no worries mon, everything was great! These two companies are very comparable in our opinion. The level of service, food selection, amenities were all on par. We had a garden view room, and it was actually a very nice view looking out to the fish pond and hammocks. The food was typical of other all-inclusives. Some dishes were out of this world, others just so-so. But there was a lot of it and good variety. Lychee (Asian) was outstanding! I saw resort staff checking buffet temps multiple times, so that's peace-of-mind. Everyone was incredibly friendly (Natasha was great during check-in), and all we had to do was ask for whatever we needed. We never saw any resort staff asking, expecting or taking tips. We did not tip on-resort and never felt that our service was compromised. It's one of the main reasons we like all-inclusives. The pool area was immaculate and the main social point for the hotel. Omar and Tennyson were superior in the bar. Drinks were ready for you even before you asked. Just beware of the Bob Marley shot-don't fall for it! The sunset catamaran cruise is a don't-miss activity. So much fun (and included!). Of course, not EVERYTHING was perfect, so I'll list the few areas that we would have changed, but keep in mind, none of these were deal-breakers and we had a fantastic trip! Our philosophy is that your vacation is what what you make of it. Even our worst trip to the island is better than Kansas! 1. Daytime activities. We are a young, active couple. We love to socialize. I will say that Sandals does a bit better job with keeping you entertained. There were a few days that events were offered (Kiev and Shauna were awesome!), but we would have liked to have more music and things in the afternoon. But I also understand that there is really only one pool area and not everyone has the same opinion. I'm sure that there were many others who probably preferred the quieter atmosphere. Again, that's where Whitehouse may have a slight advantage because they have several pools to accommodate everyone's taste. 2. The chairs. I know this is a minor thing, but the lounge chairs were a pain to adjust. You had to get out of the chair completely to change the recline position. And since they are a hard plastic, you really have to put a foam float cushion on it for it to be comfy. But at least there were PLENTY of cushions (and chairs) so that wasn't an issue. I know it makes me sound lazy about the adjustment thing, but I paid for lazy (LOL!) 3. The windows in the bathrooms. This is the dumbest design I have ever seen. The bathrooms are on the hallway side of the room, and there are slatted shutters covering the windows for ventilation. The problem is that they are in the showers! If you open them, everyone walking by can watch you in the shower! And it's very easy to open them from the outside. It's a humid, tropical location, and naturally your bathroom gets steamy during the shower, but unless you are comfortable showing the world your nakedness, keep the shutters closed. We were at Couples, not Hedonism, right? Several people complained about road noise on that side (garden view rooms) and the fact that there are open windows at all times probably contributes to that (there is no glass or screen on the window). I could hear some road noise, but nothing that kept me awake. The tree frogs helped drown out the honking. 4. The red wine. I LOVE WINE! I AM NOT A WINE SNOB! Seriously, I love wine. And I can drink a lot of mediocre/bad wine ($2 Buck Chuck, etc.), but this stuff was seriously not good. I have had Franzia that's better. There are only two house wine options (one red and one white). The white was OK, drinkable. But the red, I barely got through an entire glass. That was disappointing. After so many sweet, fruity drinks during the day, I look forward to a nice red with dinner. Didn't get it. We could have paid extra for a bottle off the manager's list, but after spending several thousand on the trip already, we passed on shelling out extra. In summary, this is a compact but very well-run property. It has had plenty of updates (I hope that the toilets and fixtures in the public bathrooms are next on the list-not that they're not clean, they are, just a little dated). It's a little bothersome to have to maneuver around the toilet lid to flush. The staff is everything you'd expect from a top-notch Carribean all-inclusive. We truly loved our trip and would not hesitate to book again. Negril has the best beaches in Jamaica, hands-down! Read less
We were travelled to Couples Negril after purely by recommendations off Tripadvisor. As it was a belated honeymoon we wanted something that bit special and this did not disappoint. Greeted at the... Read more airport at the Couples lounge with a cool and welcoming Red Stripe. Bus driver Stewart very informative during 1hour plus transfer. Greeted at hotel with sparkling wine and cool flannels then taken to our room which was decorated in traditional jamaican style. Lovely bathroom/wet room. Clean towels twice and day and clean sheets daily. Maid comes back on an evening to turn the sheets down! Mini bar in room included in price and you request whatever you are drinking. We requested vodka and got a litre bottle! Brilliant. The housekeeping service was second to none and was faultless. Food was in the asian and grill were lovely - we ate there on an evening regularly. We booked at the fine dining twice and it was superb. We tended to stick to breakfast and lunch only at the Cassava restaurant as evening wasn't as good as the other restaurants. Beach was fantastic - white sand and turqouise sea. We saw a stringray swimming past us and you can see starfish in the afternoon as they come to the surface of the sand. Floaties on sunbeds made them lovely and comfy and there was always plenty of clean towels. At 10am every morning a girl comes down and gives you a red flag which you put up every time you require a drink getting. How lazy is that - not having to get up off your sunbed! In your room you are given two empty drink containers and you can fill them up from the drinks dispenser on the beach also. We had a trip on the glass bottom boat which was fun - the two guys who took us were brilliant and you get to see fish etc. We also did the afternoon catamaran trip which is a MUST. Fantastic staff on board especially Howard the bar tender who makes a mean rum punch. You also get to see the lovely sunset. Thoroughly enjoyed them both. We had a day at Couple Swept Away and came to the conclusion the CN was much better. Not every bed had floaties there and it didn't seem as intimate as CN as it was so large and spread out. We definately made the right choice. The majority of holidaymakers were either from USA or Canada and most of them that we met were lovely. However they are very loud and one evening at dinner I did tell one man who was extremely drunk to "tone it down at bit". Spoils it for everyone. All in all can highly recommend it - one of the best holidays we've had. Read less
When arriving at the airport, be adventurous and take a taxi. Can get one for only 60.00 for a couple. You will see the country better and arrive sooner than the rest and check in will be a breeze... Read more . Stayed at a ocean view room. Nice and clean. We ordered room service everyday. Nice way to start the day. Beach is clean and nice. Plenty of loungers but some of the mats them could be replaced. Also some people like to get there spot early. Must thing to do is the treetop dinner. Very nice and romantic. All the staff was nice and very helpful. Food and drinks very varied and plentiful. The entertainment was also very good. As usual the locals were there but a simple no was good and the security keep them back. Will be back! Read less
