This resort is good for young families. Has a lovely safe beach with soft sand, fun water activities, nice food. Rooms are nice. People overall are nice. Check in was terrible. Lots of excuses. Our son's room smelled of cigar smoke. Our room was not the room we paid for upfront. We paid for an beachfront family concierge room. They put us in a garden view room with no view of the ocean at all. Looked into other hotel rooms. I spent hours trying to get a refund to no avail. They wanted me to sign a legal document I would have had my attorney at home review. Gave away all, and I mean all my rights as a customer! And, this is for a refund! This was their mistake. Totally mishandled. We were treated horribly and disrespectfully. We would never stay there, again.Hopefully, all Sandals/Beaches Resorts are not like this. Read less

Second trip to Beaches Negril, an even better time than the first! After visiting in August 2022, we couldn’t wait to return to our happy place! My boys are older now (4.5, 6.5) but still into some of the magic of Sesame Street and entertainment! This time we brought a friend (13/F) and my parents to enjoy the trip with us! We battled a few upset stomachs and sleeping difficulties (my boys were up at 5am everyday and then CRASHED!), but it was still amazing as ever! This time we went we splurged for a 3-bedroom suite in the new Eventide building (3RT) with a rooftop terrace. This room was STUNNING! Soooo much space for our 7 guests; definitely space for several more! Bunkbeds with a bathroom with tub/shower, 2 queens with huge bathroom (connected to bunk room), a master suite with a king bed, pullout couch, SO much space for belongings, and a nice en-suite bathroom. There was also a big living space with a fridge/freezer, sink, dining table, and couch that can pull out. Also a huge, gorgeous covered patio with many seating options (including a dining table) and the rooftop had a huge couch, dining table, and water feature! This room was the butler level and we were graced with “Mama” Debbie and Mr. Roshane! Debbie was a great person to greet us and help us get the lay of the land. She had our room stocked with the drinks the kids loved and walked us through our dining plans! (She was even able to move some things around for us!) She booked us on a private glass bottom boat ride we had requested and a cruise to Rick’s Cafe! She helped us manage lunchtime, whether it was getting us the food of our choice and bringing it back to our room or getting us a table wherever we wanted to eat at that time! She was lovely while we enjoyed a private dinner on our rooftop on our last night, and set up a beautiful birthday celebration for my dad’s 77th birthday! Roshane was SO good with my kids…like SO wonderful! He has so much energy and was like an energizer bunny always bringing my kids their favorite treats (froyo!) and even playing an intense game of soccer on the beach with my own energizer bunny! His energy was infectious, and he always spotted us around and would run over and surprise the kids! We were always happy to see him! Our glass bottom boat ride was incredible. We were surprised to see that it was a private ride so my boys got all the attention! They were able to feed fish, spot starfish, and even drive the boat! Rasheem and Howard were informative and fantastic in including us in the ride! Rasheem even dove in to get us a sand dollar and picked up a starfish for us to touch! They found the shipwreck for us to check out and were so friendly!! Lorenzo took us out on the hobie cat and was such a nice guy! My family also enjoyed the paddle boards and the banana boat! I attempted the water trike, but it was so much effort going against the strong winds, I gave up quickly! 🤣 We loved dining at Mariachi’s for lunch (nacho bar!) and dinner (cowboy steak)! Cadeisha and Kerry-Ann were lovely, sweet, and accommodating! Mark at the Piazza bar was wonderful and got to know my morning Bloody Mary order! I never felt like I was an inconvenience to him, even when he just made 20 frozen drinks for a bunch of demanding kids! 🤪 My kids love the water slide and lazy river! The water slide staff seemed to get stricter over the week we were there and stopped allowing floaties on the kids going down. My son got pulled down with the current a little more than he had expected and Neil, the lifeguard, was monitoring him and, after I freaked out because I thought he was drowning, he taught me that he was actually doing a good job and calmed me down! He became a friendly face after that, and he was even helping us find spots to put our stuff in the pool area - we never asked our butler for a spot because we didn’t actually SIT when we were down there! 🤣 Dinner at Kimono’s is always fun! Think of U.S. hibachi x10! It can be loud and overwhelming, but I love being able to be playful with the chefs and servers! Our team, Justin and Jackson, were HILARIOUS and really made for a fun evening for us!! We thought Justin did such a great job entertaining us and making our food! YUM! Deondra and Elorine were lovely whenever we saw them - it was nice to see Deondra all over the place so she could help to accommodate us wherever she was! Brittania was wonderful at the coffee shop and literally anticipated what we needed! It was very nice! Our housekeeping crew, Mario and Akeno, were very nice and accommodating to us when some people stayed in the room while they were there. I mean they even folded our pile of dirty clothes to make it neater when we were just making a pile. I know it seems silly, but that really went above and beyond! I had a CBD massage at the Red Lane Spa and LaTonya did a great job! I felt so relaxed!!! She was such a sweetheart! Shoutout to security guard Annette who really goes above and beyond at her job. Because our room was on the very edge of the resort, we were next to the security booth. Where most guards sit in the booth to monitor, she was up and monitoring, using her walkie talkie when people were walking by, and greeting all who crossed her path. You can tell she really takes her job seriously, and I really appreciated that!! We were so sad to leave yesterday, but bellman Luther was a joy as one of the last faces we saw as he grabbed our bags and sent us on our way! Definitely a nice way to end the trip and make us want to come back! I also have to mentioned Shynnae “Nae Nae” who was our #1 last time and potentially a reason for us coming back! She is just the most amazing person, walking around and greeting every child that she comes across. That goes above and beyond some of the other entertainment staff. I really just think she’s a ray of sunshine that this resort has!! Overall, another amazing vacation to Beaches Negril! It’s truly the Jamaican people who keep us coming back, though the beautiful beach is a nice perk too! 😉 We can’t wait to come back again as soon as we can! Read less
