We booked September 3rd to return to Grand Pineapple after loving this place 4 years ago. After reading posts covering the last 12 months on this site, we decided to cancel stay at Grand pineapple. The posts told of terrible experiences involving lack of staff, really uncomfortable beds, property decline, and overall hassle. We did not want that for our vacation in negril. I had purchased the cancel anytime any reason insurance from website booking for $228, so I was confident all our money would be refunded 24 hours later. Not the case, when we cancelled the land portion only with sandals i.e. grand pineapple, they credited the land portion only to our credit card. Then I thought about that insurance...they said no refund on insurance, so I said, no problem, we have the flights and it was flight insurance too so we will use it when we rebook land portion. But sandals said no when you cancelled stay at property, you cxl insurance. I explained to them insurance law and they quickly refunded the $228. Each time I talked with sandals they verified we still have flights. So I book another hotel and about 5 days later go to upgrade seats on airfare (spirit). Spirit tells me voucher code given by sandals is not valid. I call sandals, they give us a new voucher for airfare code TWO MORE TIMES I CALL AND GO THRU THIS. SANDALS RAN ME AROUND PHONE CALLS FOR FOUR DAYS GIVING ME BOGUS VOUCHER NUMBERS TO GIVE TO SPIRIT. Turns out Spirit refunded 482.00 to Sandals. Sandals was not giving us any credit after cancelling our wanted airplane tickets. I had to continue calling sandals and this morning it took me 90 minutes to get air credit short $275, that fee charged by spirit for sandals cancelling get our air travel.BEWARE TRAVELERS, we fly and travel about 3x a year consistently, never have we received service like this from any travel company. Sandals and Spirit will never get my business again.
I'd already read so many reviews I had realistic expectations and was definitely happy with our accommodations. There was room for improvement but we were very happy and would definitely return. Our bed was comfortable enough. I wish there were more pillows or at least a little more firm. We stayed in the beachside cottages in room 39. We could sit on our porch and see the restaurant right in front of us and you could see the ocean. I had hopes of being in the 1st building closest to the beach but I was very happy with our room. They are all close to the beach and we had a little more privacy not being right up there. The location of this hotel is prime. We walked the entire beach both ways stopping for drinks/food along the way. It was slow when we were there. I would say a max of 20 guests throughout the duration of our stay. It was nice not to feel crowded or waiting in the buffet since this is a small place. I read a lot about repetition at the buffet. The food was fine with us. We knew we weren't eating all our meals there but knew we could if we were blowing through too much money. It was great!One thing I'd like to mention so people are aware is that when it rains, the stairs and porches become VERY slippery. I almost fell and another guest did when we were there. This is not the hotels fault. It's the stone and rain mixture. Just wanted to point it out so people that might not think of it are careful when those areas are wet.
Our fourth trip back to The Pineapple and it had changed very little thank heavens . We met our favorite staff member Marvette at check-in who welcomed us back as good friends. The gardens are still immaculate and some new trees have been added which made a nice difference. We have always been welcomed by all the staff, Jacqueline, Kevin , and Christopher really went out of their way for us. Marvette made up a special place sitting for us on our first night , welcoming us back to the hotel and for dinner on our friends birthday she did the same again. The new chef Robert really took great pride along with his staff to constantly check on the dishes served , and answered any questions on the types of preparations. I reviewed our last visit a year ago , so go back to check more precise details.
Our stay at Grand Pineapple Negril was wonderful. The staff was great and the grounds were beautiful. We enjoyed the variety of food each day and Jaqueline was full of smiles greeting us. We know the cooks worked very hard to bring us such a great variety of delicious food each day. Service in the bar was great and we enjoyed the various drinks created by Orlane, Marvette, Paul, and Garfield. Adrene at the front desk was very helpful and everything about our stay was enjoyable. We took a sunset cruise with Captain Moses and Anthony and Travis treated us great. We always felt safe and looked after on the property and around the beach due to the diligence of our guard, Peter Dallas. Oliver was great and knowledgable in helping up with the many questions about the water and beach and he even took us on a catamaran ride. Our room was small but comfy and clean. Maid service was prompt every day and we never needed anything additional. It was a great place to be and I wish we were there longer, but we will definitely be there again.
First time in Jamaica and this resort was a such a lucky find. We had an absolute blast. The beach, the staff, and the sunsets couldn't have been better. We were looking for a place to relax and this place was perfect. There are plenty of things to do if you want to stay busy but if you are looking for the perfect beach to soak in sun with a drink then the most beautiful calm clear ocean waters to cool off in then this place is for you. We would definitely return and recommend.
