The hotel

As well as enjoying a beautiful location on Negril’s famous 7-mile beach, Beaches Negril Resort & Spa is also family heaven.

There's plenty for adults, too. If you don't fancy any of the excellent sports activities, you’ll soon fall in love with the white-sand beach or the Red Lane® Spa, where you can enjoy relaxing treatments in a quiet environment.

Just got back from this amazing resort and I am lost for words!!! My daughter didn’t even want to leave. I was blown away. Wasn’t expecting the service that I received. From the airport lounge, I was already amazed. I am just upset that we didn’t spend enough time at the lounge. The shuttle was nothing short of amazing- clean and got us to the resort safely. We arrived on Thursday about 5pm just in time for the parade and that’s where the party started! My gosh!!! The entertainment time is amazzzzzzzzinnnnnggggggg. The energy and vibes was off the roof. The entertainment supervisor (sorry can’t spell his name) made sure everyone is well entertained. The whole time was litttttt! The check in process was flawless. What blew me away was that every person we encountered at the resort, greeted us. Literally every employee who walked past us- that alone took my breath away. Rooms clean and the turn down service every night.. omg! Did I say the entertainment team was amazing?! Yesssss that was the highlight of my stay. There are so many things to do, we were never bored. Special mention Kemilia who served us at The Venetian and again at Mills. She is such a darling and sweet soul. Wish I had met her earlier during my stay. Shane was amazing. Funny and nice. Fabien st the water sports: he made me feel sooo comfortable even if I was scared to kayak even offered to teach me to swim. Romel the chef at Kimonos— the best!! Tracey-Ann her service exceptional. Trishanna at concierge helped me with everything I needed to book. Saved me a trip. Makala and Shanique in the photoshop, great customer service and interaction with my family- loved it. Adrien part of the entertainment team and my fire breathing prince… he is a gem!!! My ladies at the spa- Paula; she has the hands of the gods! Loved my treatment with her. Markitta (I think that’s her name) also at the spa took care of my princess for her birthday and couldn’t stop talking about her. Rojae (sorry for spelling it wrong) at the bar had me hooked on those milkshakes or whatever it was.. loved it. Chafe was a doll taking care of my family at The Mill. Overall my stay at Beaches Negril was too short. These amazing people blew me away. The resort is very clean. Covid testing was done right on property and was set up for us. We spent couple hours at the Xbox lounge where I was addicted and didn’t want to leave. The young man (forgot his name) helped my daughter passed some levels. The pool attendants were on it. Never had to search for drinks or anything. Hand sanitizer everywhere and had to put on. I could go on and on..but yeah…. We will definitely be back. Read less

This was our first time doing an all inclusive resort, and my family loved it. Everyone there works so hard and they make it special. The entertainment team is incredible with Dershia, Delano, and Kadeisha working so hard. Then Ryan in entertainment went above and beyond letting us have a special karaoke party. Bobba and Fabian in snorkling also went above and beyond to make it special for my family. Both of my kids loved the kids clubs and camps. The teachers there of Safiya, Krystal, Tashana, Alecia, and Sherika took amazing care of my children. My only knock would be the aggressive nature of people selling things on the beach. It makes the beautiful beach a little stressful, because you have to deflect their constant sales approach. The staff at the resort try to upsell more than I would like too, but the people on the beach are a little too much. Not sure if there is anything that can be done, but I thought I would mention it. Overall, this was a magical vacation where my family made lifelong memories. Absolute recommend, and it was the entire staff that made it. This goes beyond the names I mentioned, because everyone there is amazing. High recommend. Read less

I feel like they’re having staffing issues. It just wasn’t the vacation we had two years ago. Most things took 2-3 times of asking to get if we even got them. I can’t tell you how many requests at restaurants weren’t filled. It was just disappointing I guess. I don’t blame the employees although a couple were very rude, most tried their absolute… Read more
I feel like they’re having staffing issues. It just wasn’t the vacation we had two years ago. Most things took 2-3 times of asking to get if we even got them. I can’t tell you how many requests at restaurants weren’t filled. It was just disappointing I guess. I don’t blame the employees although a couple were very rude, most tried their absolute best. Management seemed to have the most issue. Mr. Clark from the photo shop was probably the worst part of our trip. But people like Rojaye from the bar, Natalie from the spa and Alex and Creton from snuba made up for managements poor attitudes. The GM was amazing though. Super nice and very helpful. Read less

We traveled there in October and it was really hot. There are only 2 restaurants that have air conditioning. The real feel temperature was 100 degrees so it was really hot. The grounds were beautiful and it had a lot for the kids to do. The place looked like it was about 1/3 full which was great for us. The staff was very friendly and everyone says hello as they walk pass you. The staff at The Mill was a bit slow at times with the drinks, even though there was plenty of staff around. They are very Covid safe. All of the staff wears masks, even outdoors and because the majority of the restaurants were open air and with fans, you weren't so concerned being around others. My girls are 2 and 3 years old and they loved seeing the Sesame Street characters. We booked the breakfast with the characters and we wound up being the only ones there. They decorated as if there were 10 families and 6 characters came out individually and spent a few minutes each with the girls. We felt like royalty at the breakfast and seeing how the girls loved spending time with the characters was worth it. They had nightly shows with the characters although we were only there for 6 nights and on the 6th night the show was a repeat from probably the first night. We wish they had more adult shows and things to do later in the night. I wish they would've sent a schedule of what was taking place with the kids throughout the day. You have to call the camp to find out whats happening and then take the kids there for a temperature check and then go back to the theatre. Having the thermometer where the event was taking place would've helped with timing. They have a lot of water sports there including scuba, glass bottom boat, paddle boarding, snorkeling, sailing and water skiing. The food was ok, it definitely could've been better. I'm not that picky of an eater, but I felt like the food from the Mill didn't have a lot of variety. Just even having a simple pasta dish would've been great, but I never saw pasta there. They have a little water park for the kids including 2 large water slides for kids over 42", a lazy river (which most of the time didn't have any floats so people were walking around it in). I should also add there is a 90 minute bus ride each way, so that does take up a bit of time. I would definitely go back to a Beaches resort especially when my kids are young, but I'm not sure I would travel to Negril again due to the heat, no AC in most of places. Read less
