Good but has problems

Our 6th visit. Hey, they finally got the towel situation under control. We were able to get one any time of day.They desperately need to hire a real Mexican chef for Arizona's. The quality of the food was poor.Service is what you pay a premium for. Most staff are great. However some are down right surly. I do not need that.Response times for anything have always been slow. That does not bother us much but again you can see things sliding downhill. The wait times for service at the Venetian were so long we left and went somewhere else.At the main bar I was invisible to the bartender as he attended to the every need of an attractive young thing. I had to finally break in and ask if I was invisible to get a glass of water.The upselling is nothing new but it does become annoying at times. Management clearly has lost sight of the idea that it is the service that we pay more and travel a long hard way for. We are going to try a lower cost all inclusive in the DR to see if there is better value there. I hope the management does two things: 1. Fix the plumbing- no one likes to have to use the community restroom to avoid floaters in your hotel room hallway due to an overflow. 2. Remind all the staff that they need to attentive to the guests no matter how much they may dislike their jobs or the guests. Ignoring them or rolling your eyes at them only makes them want to spend money somewhere else.

Great Vacation in Jamaica!

Our week long vacation in Jamaica at the Beaches Negril Resort & Spa was fantastic. This was our first experience with the "all inclusive" resort, and it didn't disappoint. The employees and amenities were great! I would recommend this experience to everyone!!

Shady Experience

Resort indicates 'free wi-fi' but we could never get it so we had to upgrade and pay an additional $250 for wi-fi that actually worked. We booked one type of room, they gave us a smaller room and kept indicating it was what we paid for. The smaller room would not accommodate us so we asked to be moved to the next biggest room. They put us in a significantly bigger room, telling us this was the 'next biggest room'. Later learned it was not the next biggest room but instead a significantly more expensive room - at a time when the resort was nearly empty so it was not a matter of availability. We ended up paying nearly $2,000 more on top of what we originally paid and the $250 for wi-fi that worked. While the staff was very nice and we were not 'required' to tip, we were often times made to feel that a tip would give us good service vs. standard service and/or that some were waiting for a tip. The food was average at best. Overall, very disappointed with the experience (despite the amazing beach!).

Amazing Beach

We vacationed here during March 2017 Spring break, and the resort was fully booked. We arrived to find out we did not get the room that we had booked in March of 2016.... we booked a luxury honey moon two double bed room and we were given a king bed with trundle bed room, we made the best of the situation but we have 2 teenagers and the trundle beds are like sleeping in a shoe box.... our room location was perfect but noisy so not good for rooms where small children would need to nap in.... room 501 - it was very close to the smaller pool with a swim up bar and the BBQ and Mariachi restaurant and Kimono restaurant. Every morning you could hear the bars being restocked and butler coolers being wheeled out. My husbands drink of choice on vacation is a mojito and 50% of the time it was available or made correctly.... The beach is beyond beautiful, and the water is so blue. There are a lot of local people on the beach that will offer to sell you weed or bracelets... but these people are poor and this is there way of making a dollar or two.... they accept a polite no thank you, and will not bother you again. We stayed at the Beaches resort in Ocho rios last year, and the beach is not comparable at all, but the main pool was a fun place to spend your time with, at Negril the beach was where the main entertainment was during the day so depending on what you like both are great. Ocho does not have the same number of restaurants, but the food they did have was fantastic... Negril the food was fantastic also and had more to choose from the Japanese restaurant was a favorite of our family. Reservations for Venetion and Kimonos were easy to make they have to be made the day of - and reservation desk opens at 9 am, and we had no problem. When in these restaurants for our reservation there are many empty tables still.... not sure why they only take a few reservations.... The entertainment crew work very long hours, and are very good at making everyone feel welcome and entertained. Leo, Anton, Shanice, Molique (spelling sorry), were fantastic. The girls in the crepe and the singing waitress from Kimonos, and Mariachi were wonderful!The housekeeping did a great job cleaning our room every day but it was random when they would come and often it was around 3pm when we were back from the beach and pool and ready to nap and clean up for dinner.... but that was probably due to the fact our teenager son slept in every day and returned to the room often during the day...Also at Ocho Rios there were more garbages around that you could put your dirty plates and cups on a shelf - these were not present at Negril and no one came by all day to get plates or cups....Overall the vacation was wonderful the cons are petty but when you spend so much on a vacation you would expect those little things to not be an issue....

Sandals/Beaches going downhil

Before I start this review let me say I am not one who likes to complain nor read negative reviews but I believe this information should be shared to people thinking of booking a Beaches or Sandals vacation. First as you have already learned these resorts come at a higher price than most other all inclusive resorts. I firmly believe you get what you pay for. Not the case here. The Beaches Negril Resort is old and run down. It is in need of repairs/updates throughout the entire resort. And when you are paying over $200 per person per a day I would think that it would be top notch. Let me break this down to categories so you can read what you would like:Service-Don't plan on getting ANYTHING in a hurry. Most times I had to call down to concierge 2-3 times before any request was brought to our room. We paid extra to have a concierge level room and I don't understand why or what we got extra. It's a joke. Sure you get a separate room at check in but after that is done it's nothing special. Most of the bartenders were friendly but I found that lots of them were looking for tips. You are NOT supposed to tip anything. Poor poor training from the Beaches/Sandals management there. I don't want to be pressured to tip anyone. If I want to tip someone I will. And furthermore it's against their rules!Food/Drinks-This is where I think they do an okay job. Portions are extremely small. Most of the time we ordered a double order of anything. After a full day of playing in the sun it is normal to be hungry!! Kimonos does a good job at big portions. Skip the Italian restaurant completely. Not worth the time. HORRIBLE and I mean horrible service. Slow and rude...need I say more?? I would say the best bartenders are at the beach bar. The ones pool side seem more interested in singing and dancing around and seem to leave the customers as a second thought.Rooms-like I previously stated the rooms are very outdated. We paid over $12000 for week for a suite and it was run down. The rooms are not noise proof whatsoever. I could go on more here but simply stated...not a $12000 a week room AT ALL.Overall-we are repeat customers and have spent 8 weeks in the Beaches/Sandals resorts. It has become less and less personal and more and more about the owners making a dollar. The customer service is HORRIBLE if you call them on the phone and their management is lacking. Beaches Negril has a new manager named Lucky. We didn't see him once except at the Soon Come Back reception where he just waved to everyone. The previous manager was always seen walking around the resort and engaging in conversation with the guests. Save your money folks..book at the cheaper resorts. You are not getting what you are paying for here. This company is about making money and not taking care of their guests. You can find some really nice all inclusive resorts all over Negril for half the price and you will get the exact same thing.
