My wife and I make 2 to 3 trips a year to the Caribbean and/or Mexico but we have only stayed at a Sandals when visiting Jamaica, We chose to come back to Negril, Sandals in particular, because of the great staff and the atmosphere of the resort. A bit more lively then Sandal Royal Caribbean but quieter than Sandals Montego Bay. Food and Beverage: As always an excellent staff, we especially want to thank all the ladies and gentlemen on the Food & Beverage team with a special shout out to Mr. Chris and Miss Sandra on the beverage team. The menus in a couple of the restaurants have changed with less variety from what I remember from our last trip in 2022 but still good food, above par from the average resort food. Butler Service: We took advantage of the Butler service again, and had excellent butlers but especially pleased with Wadea. She has gone above and beyond our expectations. Having used the Butler service on previous trips across 3 resort she is in our top 3 by far, tied with Christopher and Floyd from this same resort. Entertainment staff: A fun staff, very engaging with guests without being pushy. There is one gentleman on the team who we want to call out; he is young but been on the team for about 3 years, has braces, is always smiling, and very friendly. I do not recall his name (he told me 3 or 4 times but I am completely drawing blank as I write this review) Housekeeping: Our rooms were kept clean and tidy. Pleasant staff. Overall, a wonderful trip and great experience....the staff makes the experience. Read less

Recently returned from another stellar Sandals vacation- this time in Negril. We were there 18 years ago and it is still magical. This was our 7th Sandals vacation, so yes, we love their Caribbean hospitality with Jamaica being our favorite destination. The staff is so friendly, polite, helpful- shout outs to Sandra (bar), Warell (water sports), Pamela and Merlene (loyalty). We also enjoyed the people who stayed at Negril- not a big party resort, quiet, respectful, relaxing. Will be back next year. Why a 4 star rating, not 5? Negril needs more restaurants! Read less

This was our 3rd Sandals and 4th Sandals trip. I was worried about trying concierge level instead of butler, but we were fine. Concierge Carl and bartenders Chris and Marlon took great care of us. We ate breakfast and lunch at the Bayside most days. Our favorite dinners were at Sundowners (get the escovitch snapper!) and Brava. Some of the resort looks like it needs a fresh, but our building (Bamboo Grove) was newer. We loved our room on the 2nd floor. We had an ocean view, balcony and a seating area. Never used the balcony tub. We vacationed to relax, so we skipped the main pool activities and spent most of our time on the beach in front our building and the smaller pool. The beach was pretty quiet, clean, and the water was super calm. The vendors were kind and didn’t linger if you weren’t interested. We enjoyed the snorkeling / sunset catamaran cruise to Rick’s. That was a pleasant. We used Sandals transport to and from the resort. The 90 minutes ride was fine both ways. On the way to resort we were alone in a small van, on the return we were on a shuttle. Both rides were pretty relaxing. Read less

We stayed at Sandals Negril for 9 days for our wedding and honeymoon. We had an incredible experience and the staff members really went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Tevin Scott was the first bartender we met and he instantly went above and beyond to make sure we got what we wanted to drink. He had excellent suggestions and even made new drinks for us. He quickly learned our names, and our wedding group of 26 people’s names, and greeted us with a smile and fist bump every time we saw him. Tevin made such a great first impression on all of us that we requested to have him as our bartender at our wedding. He did an incredible job at our wedding. There are not enough words to express our gratitude and admiration for Tevin. He is simply the best and he made the strongest impression on us throughout our whole trip. Sandia Hutchinson was our on-site wedding coordinator and she was amazing. She made sure every detail was taken care of and answered our many questions. Thanks to Sandia I truly wasn’t stressed about the wedding. She also partnered with Renae and Romona to ensure everything went smoothly and they created such a beautiful and flawless day for us. I would highly recommend anyone considering a destination wedding to choose Sandals Negril. The entertainment at this resort is one of a kind. Chevy and his crew put on energizing shows every morning at the main pool and host different parties each night. Chevy also hosted our rum and game night with our wedding party and aside from the wedding that was the best night of our trip. His energy is unmatched and he will remember your name the whole trip. Tommy was another entertainer that we interacted with almost daily. He always greeted us with a hug or fist bump and even found us on the morning he knew we were leaving to hug us goodbye. Jaqueline did my hair and makeup for the wedding and a trial run. She took the time to get to know my style preferences and what would work best for my skin and hair. Both my hair and makeup were flawless and held up in 90-degree heat and humidity, lots of happy tears, and hours of dancing. Vanessa did my Bridesmaid’s hair and my Mom’s hair and makeup and she did wonderful. We all got exactly what we asked for and the styles lasted all night long. Andrew was our wedding photographer alongside Jeffrey, our videographer. The duo worked so well together to capture genuine moments between us and our family and friends. Jeffrey has the funniest personality and kept us laughing all day. Neither my husband or I like getting our pictures taken but the duo made us very comfortable, and it quickly felt like we were just hanging out with friends and they were able to get many incredible shots. Every staff member listed made our entire group feel so special. It takes an incredible group of people to remember all 26 names and preferences. Even those who weren’t specifically listed went above and beyond in their service and we are so thankful for all of them. We could not have had a better vacation and cannot wait to visit again.
