We had been told so many scary stories of Jamaica it had me nervous going, but the minute we got there that all went away. I have never felt so secure, so pampered and full from all the delicious food ever anywhere. The beach was wonderful, activities galore....if anyone was bored, hungry, or didn't have a drink I in hand, it was their own fault. Our room was wonderful and the location was also. The staff at Sandals should get an honor because they all work like a well oiled machine and were always willing to help. Our trip was the best we have ever been on! Thank you Sandals Negril for everything! Read less

We chose Sandals Negril for our Honeymoon and our first trip to Jamaica. Being our first time we chose to go with a Butler suite and that is definitely the move for your first time, if we went back we would probably be fine without but we definitely utilized ours and always had reserved seats closest to the beach or with the best view at all the restaurants. For an All Inclusive the food was excellent, was not disappointed with a single meal. Cucina Romana was definitely our favorite and Antonette was our server both times, she remembered us and was incredibly nice and on her game, we never had an empty glass. Usually did lunch at the cafe, again great service from day one. My wife saw one of the servers (Vaughn) balance a drink on his head and commented how cool it was and everytime we ate there he had all the drinks coming our way balanced on his head, super cool trick we appreciated every time. The entertainment every night was very festive and enjoyable, the entertainers always came out afterwards and mingled, making sure they thanked every single guest that came. Quan was easily our favorite, he remembered us by name after the first time we met him and would join us for other group activities on the property. We signed up for the Sandals Rewards program (Great Deal) to make sure we force ourselves to vacation more often to get away from our busy lives to enjoy ourselves the way we did here. The property, the food and the beaches were great but the reason we would go back to Negril was for the people, everyone was super friendly and those 3 I mentioned left an impact on us. Would 10/10 recommend Read less

My husband and I have been to Sandals before so this will compare and contrast Sandals Negril to Sandals Ochi and Sandals Regency La Toc in St. Lucia. Negril has the best beach with soft sand and relatively mild waves. The beach is long in terms of walking on the beach but short from where the beach chairs are to where the ocean starts. Negril was relatively quiet and very relaxing. The pools are smaller than Ochi and La Toc and not as much activity happening at the pool or at night. Ochi is much more lively, but if you are looking to relax, Negril is the place. Negril has a public beach so you will see people walking trying to sell you stuff. The restaurants at Negril had great food - enjoyed everything we ate. Big shout out to Vaughn and Selina at the Bistro Grill and LaKeisha at the smoothie station for excellent service. There were more variety of restaurants and availability at Ochi. What I mean is that Negril had some restaurants that shared staff so the restaurants were only open certain days/times. There were times we wanted to go for lunch or dinner and that restaurant would be closed. The butler service was better in Ochi, but it could have been the specific butlers we had. Ricardo in Ochi was much more attentive and anticipated needs. The butlers in Negril gave us what we asked but we would go hours without hearing from them and really only saw them once or twice a day if we called. They weren't as adept at checking in or anticipating needs. So, the service wasn't bad at Negril but definitely wasn't worth the extra we paid and if we had not experienced the service at Ochi, we probably wouldn't purchase that room category again. You can get many of the same benefits just being a Sandals Select member. Overall, the trip accomplished its purpose - relaxation and time spent together as a couple. I would visit Negril again but would try another Sandals first to see other resorts. Also, Negril is about a 90 min. bus ride from the airport at Montego Bay. Read less

We visited Sandals Nigrel this past week and loved it. Having visited Sandals St. Lucia previously, we were pleasantly surprised to find Jamaica offered equally great hospitality and a beautiful beach with clear blue water and gentle waves perfect for lounging on floats. Our favorites: Scuba was great and well run. We appreciate most of all Tristan for his professionalism and customer service focus. He took extra time from his day when we first arrived to check us in for the next morning's dive. He opitomizes what we expect from a Sandals employee leader! We did have a butler suite which was a first for us (previously we had a club suite) we enjoyed being pampered by Kendrick and Wadea who made an amazing team! They pulled together last minute dining reservations, taxi drivers, dining in room and on the beach...they did it all with a smile on their faces! Our butler suite did include the Club MoBay airport expediated service that got us out of a 200+ person line and into 3 person line ...well worth it but you can purchase it separately on your own. It also gets you a ticket to use the VIP lounge during departure and an expedited line through security. Even if we did a club level next time, we would opt to get the Club MoBay tickets. Sandals provides base level Mondavi wine but we did buy a couple bottles of higher end wine when dining out on special nights. Tjean provided great wine service for us! Ian at the Barefoot by the beach restaurant was very accommodating and was a pleasure to talk with daily. Overall, compared to our other Sandals stay in St. Lucia we appreciated the awesome lounging beach in Nigrel and soft white sand (St. Lucia scuba was better but the beaches in Jamaica we're the best). The resort isn't huge but just right for those who like a little fun but don't want to feel overwhelmed by a huge, very loud resort. You can get to Nigrel easily by taxi arranged by Sandals (40$ per person round trip to the craft markets and the driver will wait while you shop). We enjoyed the craft market for locally made souvenirs but it was a little overwhelming with the shop owners asking you to come look at their wares...but it felt good to support the local families. We also made some purchases in the resort shop (comparable to duty free in the airport for coffee and rum but keep in mind you can buy duty free rum/alcohol in the airport after security and bring it in your carry on). We did a $300 private boat to Nigrel to swim in caves (yes, snorkel in actual caves) and then see Rick's Cafe (you can cliff jump there if inclined). We arranged it though the water sports center at Sandals and had a blast...Tristan captained the boat and Devon assisted. They provided towels, snack, alcohol, a personal tour, and a great time! It was one of the highlights of our trip and we would suggest that to anyone. Yes, marijuana is present for purchase just off the resort as it has been decriminalized in Jamaica. You'll see the sellers walking the beach if you are interested but I give kudos to the Sandals security for keeping sellers of anything from hasselling anyone. It's there if you want to purchase but you don't feel bombarded by it. The two Sandals smoking shelters can be used for it. Points for Sandals to consider: the first and last impressions of a business are the most important and our bus ride to Sandals was anything but professional (the driver seemed upset, drive erratically, and did not offer a break half way to the resort). The bus back to the airport was better but still definitely deviated from Sandals luxary style. Consider more professional transfer services to seal that first and last impression. The Sandals airport lounge that is the first stop upon arrival did not have alcohol other than beer. When we asked the attendant if wine or anything else was available, she said the "butler" wasn't available. Having. A fully stocked lounge for arrival in the airport is another important first impression and one to work on. Also, we were told not to keep our luggage and then it was taken by the airport porter. We don't mind someone handling our luggage but we appreciate being asked and given the opportunity to keep our luggage in sight with us. Overall, we'll be back to Sandals Nigrel again...it was a great, relaxing trip! Read less

The rooms are beautiful! Wake up to ocean views with the sound of waves crashing! Excellent staff! The food was excellent. Daily snorkeling was such a nice bonus! They have nightly activities scheduled! My favorite was the chocolate party on the beach. Chocolate desserts and chocolate martinis! YUM!
