We just returned from Sandals Negril yesterday evening, and we are already wishing we were back! At Sandals Negril, they are doing an excellent job managing Covid and helping guests to feel safe. The resort was at 30% occupancy, and we are not sure we'd like it as much if it were more crowded. It felt like we had the resort to ourselves. We loved the individualized attention - especially from bartenders Chris and Keith and O'Neil the photographer! We love them all! We had butler service, but didn't feel that it was necessary at this small resort, as we were more comfortable doing things ourselves (even though Floyd and Myron were excellent!). We did booked club level instead of butler level for our next trip! We were sad there were no excursions, but we also enjoyed relaxing without an itinerary. We highly recommend the boat trip to the caves and Ricks (which was closed) with Derrick and Ricardo. It was an absolutely perfect week to reconnect, disconnect, and enjoy life! We didn't turn on the news and turned off our work email. I am pouring over the pictures and memories as I count down to our next time away! Thank you! Read less

If you can afford to splurge, the butler service is amazing. Especially when you have great butlers. A special shout out to Theda the butler. She anticipated our needs, brought us whatever we needed with a smiling and cheery attitude and went above and beyond with all our requests. I think our 5 star rating was definitely due to her service. Thank you Theda! We appreciate you and all you do! Read less

My wife and I celebrated our 20 year anniversary at Sandals Negril. The staff was very friendly and overwhelmingly welcoming. We had an ocean front room with a beautiful view! The room was very clean and modern! If you book at least Club level, there is a stocked mini-bar in your room. It also included water and soda for non-drinkers. This was restocked daily. You have access to a large room service menu from 8am-10pm. All of the selections were delicious, and delivery took about 30-45 min. The beach was beautiful, but there seemed to be an abundance of seaweed which collected in the swimming areas. We saw the staff cleaning some of it out, but it would have been nicer to swim and prettier to look at if they had cleaned more of it out. Roving staff always kept our drinks full no matter if you were at the pool or the beach!! They had a DJ at the pool area playing good music, but there wasn’t any music playing where it could be heard from the beach chairs. You will need to play music on your phone if you want music at the beach. We also had a private cabana one day, which was amazing! A concierge made the long trip to the bar, and any of the restaurants to get you anything you wanted to eat and drink. The cabanas also came with several bottles of name brand sunscreen. It was a beautiful view and nice shallow water to cool off in. We set one of the lounge chairs in the water and it was amazing. The cabanas however we’re also missing music and we had to play it on our phone. The free WiFi was sufficient for everything we needed, including the occasional FaceTime calls back to the kids. The WiFi signal however was kind of spotty, and didn’t cover every part of the beach. Also in our room we had to sit near the balcony in order to get a signal. Nobody will accept tips. And they are serious about it. If you try, they will literally back away from you while thanking you for the gesture. The only exception to this is if you have a Butler level room, or a concierge at the private cabana. I would say the only downfall on our trip was the persistent offers to purchase the “paid“ extras such as Snuba, and private boat tours. We were approached at least once a day, almost every day of our week there, and felt pressured to purchase the upgraded paid excursions. This was annoying Especially when you would tell them no thank you and the same employee would approach you the next day and ask you again. One specific employee also appeared irritated when we showed for the free snorkeling tour after telling him no earlier in the day to the paid Snuba tour. I’m wondering though if this was because the resort was only at partial capacity due to Covid, and had it been full like normal, if they would have had more business and been less persistent. Also there are several of the locals walking the beach that will offer you marijuana, braids, sea shells, and other items for sale. They were always polite though, and would keep moving if you told them no. Overall a great relaxing trip, and I would absolutely go back! Read less
