The atmosphere, incredible, top-rate service and delicious cuisine made for a perfect evening. Marja serenaded us with his beautiful voice while he cooked amazing mahi mahi, shrimp, steak and chicken! Sasha was incredibly charming server and provided impeccable service as well. Could not have asked for a lovelier evening.

I stayed at this resort for just 4 days and 3 nights. I was not enough (came Thursday evening and left Sunday morning). They take care of you! Since the moment you step inside the resort and to the moment they drop you back off to the airport. The food is great and the drinks are too. The room as clean and the AC was amazing. I've been to hotels with broken or not strong enough AC to withstand a hot day but you definitely have to worry about that hear! We wish we had more time to do excursions but next time! They left me wanting to come back. Some of the guests I have spoken too have told me that its been their 2-5 time coming if not more and I can see why. Read less

We stayed in the suite with private pool and butler service. All in all the suite was beautifully appointed and well stocked with beverages. We were there for a week and although the pool was great and we used it daily, no one ever came by to skim the debris in the pool and there was no skimmer so we did it by hand daily. Also, in using the jacuzzi tub we always fill the tub past the jets wherever we stay and run the tub jets before use. The stuff that came out was disgusting like moldy dead skin and there was a lot of it. I suggest that staff run those jets out before each new guest arrival. Our butlers Orlando and Gawayne were terrific and we got to know about them and their families which was better than being waited on as I am not one for such fancy amenities as a butler. It was good to get to know them though. They were helpful in getting us the best tables at restaurants and initiating the staff to decorate our bed and tub with flowers each evening. The main pool was great and we met some friendly people during the week. We participated in activities at the pool like water aerobics which were fun and the "playmaker" who ran the events Romario was a blast and it was great to learn about he and his family also. We found the drinks to be rather weak but creative at the pool bar. The best drinks were to be had at the Piano Bar or made in our room. Activities to recommend are the tubing (hint: a discreet tip will get you a wild 15 minute ride rather than the standard 5 minute drag along.) Best thing we did was a Reggae Cruise which was three hours long and included snorkeling, dancing and strong drinking! This was a private tour which you had to pay for but well worth it. Entertainment: The Silver Birds Steel Drum Orchestra was phenomenal. Do not miss that if the are there. Once the entertainment ended in the main area around ten you had to wait until 11:30 for the DJ to start at the Piano Bar so the lull in action was kind of a downer for me. Wife had a massage at the spa which was top rate. Food was average at best. The hibachi dinner was very good as was the Italian restaurant. Best meal was at Barefoot which is situated on the beach sand and the chef, I believe his name was Shevon stopped by the table. We were able to thank him for the great meal he prepared. Worst dinner was to be had t the French restauarant. I literally could not cut through the steak and left it as it was unchewable. My wife's lobster was the size of my middle finger. The ride to the resort is about 75 minutes from the airport and you will drive though several towns where poverty is present. The resort is beautiful the water is beautiful. The food could be better and the drinks could be stronger. That's the good and the not so good. It was worth the trip as it was our first all inclusive. I feel that having paid what we did for the week ( which was as much as a years worth of our mortgage) the food should have been top notch. A side note: there was a wedding party there that week, probably about 30 people. As a group they monopolized the pool, dance floor, etc. So if you have a wedding party there please know that other guests are there to enjoy themselves also. Staff was superior and friendly.

The beach was gorgeous and very well maintained, resort staff were friendly but it stops there. Our room was never consistently restocked for simple things like towels and water. We came back one evening after swimming and the room service had come and taken our dirty towels but never replaced them with new ones. We had to wait until 1am to shower because they were so slow getting us towels. We had to call the front desk 3 times on another occasion just to get some more water because that was never restocked. Service at the beach and many of the restaurants were slow but no excuse since there were plenty of staff and the resort was not busy. One morning we went to Barefoot by the Sea for breakfast and we were one of 3 or 4 other tables only, and it took over 30 minutes to get our drinks that we ordered right when we got there. We had to ask again and it took another 10 minutes. The beach service is also very slow, we were on the beach for an hour before someone came over and asked us for our order (there were only two other couples on the beach in our section at the time--it was not busy) You can visit Beaches their sister resort which is a quick drive, but no shuttle to transport you. You take a 2 minute cab ride and get charged $20 one way. No one ever has change when you pay so you are constantly asked to donate what they owe you money for change. This also happened at the gift shop where they have a cash register. We did however have meet a few staff members that were good and we wanted to tell a manager about. We were told we would get a slip to fill out but waited forever for that too. We never got it before our shuttle came at checkout. Shelley at Cucina romana were fantastic, Kendra and Jamie at the Bayview cafe breakfast were wonderful. Overall opinion is for what we paid we did not get good service and I have been to many other resorts where I have paid far less and the service there blows the service at Sandals Negril out of the water.
