We booked our honeymoon at Sandals Negril resort. We called 33 days prior to go over our options in case our trip was cancelled because of COVID-19.

We booked our honeymoon at Sandals Negril resort. We called 33 days prior to go over our options in case our trip was cancelled because of COVID-19. They told us that we'd get 50% back and would have to pay for the flights. So we didn't cancel. Then they end up closing the resort for six weeks. Their customer service stopped taking inbound calls and advised someone would be reaching out to us. Finally get a phone call back two weeks later, and the rep tells me we can only reschedule, they're not taking cancellations at this time. What?! The resort is closed and all you can do is re-book? They told me I'd have to pay for my flights (even though the Jamaican border is closed!) and they could only refund 50% at this time. Luckily we bought travel insurance and had to file a claim with them to get a full refund. The reps I spoke with were rude, and constantly giving me conflicting information. I understand trying to save as much money as possible because of the pandemic, but this was a horrible experience all around and they made the cancellation as difficult as possible. Will not be re-booking with Sandals. Read less

We visited Sandals Negril March 12-20, 2020. This was the week that the COVID 19 virus escalated within the US. I'll try not to let this be mentioned much in my review, but there are some points worth mentioning. Our arrival was easy. Made our way through customs very quickly and was on the shuttle bus within 20 minutes of arriving at the Sandals lounge. Check in at the resort was painless and our room was ready upon arrival. (approx. 330pm). We booked the HB Paradise Honeymoon Beachfront Grande Luxe Club Level Room. I made a room request at booking, and although they did not give us that room, they did give us the one next door. It was perfect. I highly recommend the beachfront rooms. I personally think they are the best rooms on the resort. Centrally located and the sunset views are priceless. Food was good, drinks were better! We booked a sunset cruise at the drive shop. I highly recommend. We had drinks, snacks, cruised to Rick's cafe then back to the resort while we enjoyed Negril's best sunset! Mardio and Emil were the best! Emil drove that boat like boss while at the caves and Ricks! I also want to mention a few others that made our trip special. Sharika and Kemmola, who greeted us each morning with enthusiam at Bayside Breakfast ! Sansia prepared some great sky high omelettes Shaday at the Bistro always made us smile. Denise at the pizza shoppe was so friendly and we loved her playful spirit! Delford at Bayside ( evening French restaurant) got to know us early in the week. He took great care of us by making sure we got exactly what we requested. Best bartender awards go to Claudia and Chris at the piano bar. The employees make this place. All were very friendly. I wanted to mention that Sandals Negril was taking COVID seriously. We saw steps being taken each day to protect the guests and employees. (required use of hand sanitizer before restaurant seating, jar cookies indidually wrapped, activites where groups would gather did not take place, just to name a few) Their actions only added to our overall enjoyment. Thank you Sandals Negril !! I would highly recommend this resort if you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere with incredible staff. Read less

He promised he would be able to juggle the bottles next time we come to visit. Our room was on the third floor of the Paradise Beachfront Village. We were in the center of all the action!
