Meh

Let me start by saying while this review is about the hotel it is the average rating is due to the travel agent who oversold the package that we received. The hotel was nice but I've stayed at better resorts for cheaper and longer. Pros: I loved that a lot of the amenities that you usually have to pay for were offered for free. And all of the food I ate was absolutely amazing. This resort was by far the best as far as the food is concerned. The staff was very friendly and accommodating! I was there to attend a long time friend's wedding and the staff that took care of us was top notch. Couldn't have asked for a better wait staff and DJ.Cons: let's start with the construction. Its an eye sore and very inconvenient. The next is the price. We paid a lot of money to stay here, which I'm now finding out was probably due to the travel agent price gauging, but nonetheless it was a lot. There room was marketed as a double suite that could accommodate 4... But there were only 2 full size beds so we had to get two rollaway beds. For $600+ a night the beds should be bigger. Then they put us right outside of the playground. none of us brought any kids with us so to be place in a room right next to a crying baby and right outside of the balcony see screaming kids is not my idea of a vacation. Next, as I said were there for a wedding, they did not have a hospitality suite for the brides and their wedding party to get dressed in. they expected her to get dressed in her room, which was ALL the way at the back of the resort and then traverse the entire resort, in the her, in her makeup and freaking wedding gown. that was a hot mess. In closing if i was staying in Negril again I would actually consider staying here if I got a better deal than what we had last time with the bootleg travel agent.

exceeded our expectations

we stayed at the resort nov6-13 and had the best time! our first time there, was in turks 2015 and have to say that our experience in negril was amazing. everything is within close distance so its fairly easy to get around. the entire staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and stress free. adrian and sillion were awesome. but there were so many that were great, i just can't remember their names. will definitely come back. the concierge service was outstanding . the loyalty team was superb. i felt everyone that i came into contact gave a warm smile. enjoyed the waterskiing and nightly shows. food was excellent .

Don't make the same mistake we did, would have been better off to stay home

Don't make the same mistake we did to goto Negril after our stay with Turks and Caicos was cancelled. This was our 5th trip to Beaches. If you are one of the unlucky ones who had their trip to Turks Cancelled save your time and money and do not goto Negril. After being informed our trip was cancelled by Beaches we were given a hard time about refunding and instead sold on the idea of going to Beaches Negril instead. We checked the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to go ahead, that is why I feel it is so important to post my review, so it prevents someone else from our experience. If you are used to Turks and Caicos you will be disappointed with Negril, period.Here is my review:Positives:The rooms are nice.The facilities (while small) are nice.The activities and shows are of equal quality that we have come to expect from Beaches.The ocean is beautiful.The concierge staff was helpful and sweet. Negatives:The 1 1/2 hour ride from the airport to the hotel is painful. After a long day of travel the kids (and adults) are already spent, this additional painful ride was my first warning sign. The people there drive crazy, there was actually a wreck directly in front of us that our driver narrowly avoided. (No child seats aboard, just seat belts FYI)We had money taken from our bag (first time in dozens of trips around the world that this has happened, more on this later).The xbox in one of our rooms did not work. (this was fixed 4 days into our trip.)The phones in both rooms were broken and flashing the entire duration of the trip(not a huge deal we covered up the light but it was super annoying and still visible at night to the kids).The toilet was slow to flush when we checked in (this was fixed 3 days later)The AC system in the kids room broke and flooded the room. They removed the furniture and never said sorry or offered to clean/dry/ or replace our kids clothes that were affected. The sales people on the beach are RELENTLESS.They didn't care that I was with my family they were offering me drugs and were offering me drugs and stripper women repeatedly. Some people were obviously there for that experience and were partaking, I am not judging but I didn't spend over $10 grand for a week for my kids to be exposed to this.The security staff watched and did nothing. It became uncomfortable to goto the beach. As long as you stayed off the beach and avoided the ocean you will be fine I guess...Another point the water sports at the beach are included and are great, but the boat was broken down repeatedly adding to our disappointment.As a side note my son wanted to parasail and we went and for the first time anywhere in the world the boat ran over the rope. Not a huge deal but scary for a few moments. I told my son not to worry we would just go swimming but the boat got free and we were fine. (this was not beaches fault for the record, but since it happened it needs to be part of the review.)My daughters shoes were taken from the pool area. I wanted to believe that this was just some sort of accident or mistake but based on the fact that we were robbed and coming up empty at lost and found for 3 days straight its hard to give them anymore benefit of the doubt.Finally if you do find yourself to be the victim of a theft at Beaches Negril let me give you a little friendly advice. Don't bother reporting it. They insist as part of their "investigation" that they must do a search of the room. The people that do this are nice enough. They literally go through EVERYTHING. I showed them exactly where the money was in my bag and they insisted on searching the rest of our room. I had thousands of dollars in the safe and they wanted to see it? They insisted in going through all of our stuff, intentionally or otherwise implying that i had misplaced the money somewhere or was hiding it. They went to look in a small bag which I told them they really didn't need to look in, the lady grabbed it from my hand. I told her it was a box of condoms and she literally pulled them out and inspected the entire contents of the condom box. I still can't quite understand the point of all of this. The whole experience was very violating, the fact that the money was taken and then the "investigation" after. They asked me to open the safe where they removed all of our cash and jewelry. I sat as they counted the money (I think there was 5 grand or so), and although I didn't understand I complied. They then put it back, thanked me and told me that they would have the results of the investigation in a few days. I went back to the pool to rejoin my family and try to make the best of it. Later we went back to the room to change for dinner. My wife was getting dressed and said she could not find her earring in the safe. I felt very strongly that the security team that came to my room was honest but my stomach sank as I realized that it must have fallen out when they removed the contents of the safe and of course housekeeping had cleaned up our room since then. Luckily they had not cleaned it very thoroughly and the earring was laying on the floor where it had dropped to during the "investigation". While meeting with managment before the investigation I voiced my concerns with our horrible experience, and she tried to help but there was too much damage done. As a nice gesture the Mgr compensated us with passes to the VIP lounge on the way home. They also offered us 10000 points for our trouble (I believe that equates to $100.00 of value). We didn't get to enjoy the VIP lounge at all on the way home, the power to the JAMAICAN INTL airport went out and the check in took over 2 hours to get our handwritten airline tickets. It was a joke. I don't blame it all on Beaches, clearly some of this was Jamaica's fault too, but we are not going back. When my kids begged me to never go back to Jamaica again it really hit home and I realized how bad this trip was. Save your money and spend your vacation more wisely than we did. If you go into it expecting Turks and Caicos you will be disappointed. I think our problem was an expectation problem and a bunch of bad circumstances on top of that. We didn't just get money stolen we had our vacation stolen. I hope if you do decide to go you have a better trip than we did.

Bed Bugs, Poor Service, Save your money!

DO NOT RECOMMEND! I spoke to the Concierge Manager on duty to express my regret for choosing to stay at this resort and my experience with the lack of service my husband and I received. Unfortunately, we would not recommend Beaches resorts to ANYBODY! Take your money elsewhere!There was a list of things that went wrong during our stay at the resort: Check In:When we arrived at the resort the rooms were not ready, and we waited for over an hour for room assignment. In the meantime, we were told to go find a place to eat while we waited BUT we were not given nor offered a tour of the facilities so that we can familiarize ourselves with the resort and restaurants. Upon checking in we also did not receive any wristbands to indicate that we were on that resort and had access to the services.(Because there are no wristbands, anyone can come on the property, drink, eat and chill as long as they give someone’s room#!!)After about 1.5 hours, we finally went back to the front desk only to wait for another 10 minutes or so to be assigned a room. We were a part of a wedding party and was supposed to receive additional documents including wedding itinerary and location information; however, this was not provided to us even after asking the front desk.   When our room was finally “ready” we were escorted alongside another couple we were not with to our room. When we walked in we had two double beds and our reservations indicated a king bed room. Given the fact that my husband is 6’5”, a double bed is not at all comfortable for him and I. We immediately let the gentleman know that this is not what we booked and he told us this was the only room available. He then proceeded to escort the other couple to their room. There must had been confusion because 20 minutes later (while still waiting for our luggage) a supervisor entered our room without knocking as I was changing clothes. The supervisor immediately apologized because she didn't know the room was occupied. (As I️ stand there with no pants on) She explained to us that she was going to rooms to make sure they were clean and ready for guest not realizing the room had been assigned. She then proceeded to check the room and said that the room was not up to standards, the floor was dirty, the bathroom was not cleaned to standards and on top of that the refrigerator was not stocked. At that time, we also let her know that we were supposed to be in a room with a king size bed based on our reservation. She made a couple of calls and ended up leaving the room, we didn’t hear back from her in regards to the room situation and had to spend the night in the room which was very uncomfortable for the both of us trying to sleep in a double bed.Rooms:The next day (Friday), we left to eat and get a massage. Upon returning to our room, we were surprised to see it had not been serviced! (Beds unmade, floors not cleaned, no fresh towels, NOTHING!) Shortly after, we were abruptly notified by the bell service that we were being switched rooms. Come to find out, we were moving to a room with a king size bed. When we got the new room, the floors were dirty and the refrigerator was not stocked (again). The room also had a ton of mosquitoes which appeared to be coming from an opening in the bathroom ceiling. Needless to say, we spent time trying to kill them so that we could rest/sleep comfortably. We notified the front desk about the everything but the only thing they did was fill up the fridge.Resort Grounds & Experience:We went to the beach and the grounds were not well kept and the cabanas were filthy. We took pictures of the area that we were in but multiple employees walked around everything without cleaning it up.‪On Saturday morning‬ we were turned away from both The Mill and Stew Fish being denied food due to all the restaurants closing at the same time. Which of course we wouldn't have known because we never got a tour of the facilities, or schedules of the restaurants. This was upsetting considering we were a part of a wedding that day and had limited leisure time to enjoy a meal. Also, to our surprise the resort did not offer room service. As a 5-star resort, this was shocking!Rarely when we asked for directions around the resort were we escorted to where we were trying to go. Seriously we felt as if we were on a scavenger hunt!It was very hot at the resort and the night of the rehearsal dinner I asked the front desk for a wet towel for my husband because he was sweating. I was denied a towel and told they didn't have any towels at all (although we were greeted with towels at check-in…). The resort staff also said NO to us for a lot of things that we asked for, which is not what you want to hear when you are at an all-inclusive resort and spend $2,000.00+.After all of that, we were made aware of several bed bug infestations in various rooms around the resort. Witnessing several guests with whelped bite marks and itchy skin on their arms and legs. This made us extremely uncomfortable and we found ourselves checking the bed and slightly paranoid while sleeping at night knowing that was a problem in the buildings across from us! Needless to say, this has resulted in us taking every precaution necessary to ensure our home is not compromised due to our stay at Beaches Negril. When you save your money to go on vacation and spend over $2,000.00 this is not the experience you expect with a 5-star resort! We have made our travel agent aware of our concerns and experience with the resort.

Love it.

Back to Beaches for what must be the 7th or 8th time – and still looking to return in 2018. The holiday was excellent – again! – and there is something about the place that draws you back year after year.The diving with Desrick, Glenroy, Donovan, Norman and a new face, Inique, was excellent and the reliable Larry and Valentine make up a great experience for experienced and novices alike. Rosemarie in the shop is so accommodating and organised that the whole experience is typically relaxed. Desrick and Glenroy specifically looked after my youngest son, Benjamin, who was able to further develop his diving skills and Norman, my old friend, helped my in-laws to achieve their AOW. The whole team are why we go back to dive in Negril.After a morning of diving we were ably looked after on our cabana by Natasha. Natasha was lovely, attentive as much as necessary and able to help us out when we needed a couple of things organising. Adrian H and Nordel did wonders behind the pool bar but the star of the resort for me is Andre Scott. That boy seems to be working non-stop and very much has a “can do” attitude which adults appreciate and the children in our group love. He’s a star and the face of Beaches as far as I’m concerned in as much as he personifies customer service. A little maverick perhaps but with a good heart and good intentions.Also, a special thank you to Hilroy too, who was able to assist with a couple of things for me that fortnight.The only slight negative for me this year was the rising costs of the cabanas and the corresponding loss of features from these since we first started taking them several years ago. Something I discussed with the GM, Lucky, and the only disappointment in an otherwise perfect 16 nights.
