The powder-white sand and turquoise water's of Jamaica are awaiting you at the Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa, only steps away from the activity of your choice. But the most awesome feature of all is the beauty of the Negril sun sinking below the horizon to signal the end of another day in paradise.
Location: On Negril's famous 7-mile beach, 10 min drive to the town of Negril, 90 min away from the airport.
We had a walk out club level room with tranquility tub for two. The room was great. It was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, full in room bar that was restocked daily. The shower had two nozzles, one was like falling rain that was awesome. This was our 33 wedding anniversary and the concierge and maid went out of their way to ensure a great romantic getaway! The pool had swim up bar that was wonderful and provided some shelter from the blazing sun.
We just returned from a week at Sandals Negril and our experience was absolutely wonderful with a couple of minor exceptions that we are mentioning only in an effort to be completely honest and transparent in our review. Again, we had a fabulous week at Sandals Negril!As returning guests, we are members of Sandals Select, and booked our vacation (except air) directly through the Sandals Select representative. We were able to apply several pretty substantial discounts to cost of our vacation in addition to the Sandals Select discount. We received a 10% military discount (available to active and retired US and Canadian military AND civilian personnel) off the total cost of our vacation. Because we booked our weeklong stay within 30 days of our wedding anniversary and in a Club-level room or above, we received a free night; paying for six nights, staying for seven nights. When planning your vacation, do your homework on the Sandals website to find your applicable discounts and follow the instructions to the letter to ensure you get your discounts. While we had no trouble getting our discounts applied, I’ve seen reviews in which guests thought they should’ve received advertised discounts, but didn’t. In all, we saved $1700 off of the price advertised on the Sandals website.Arrival processing at Montego Bay Airport (MBJ) was uneventful and we had about a 30 minute wait for transportation after checking into the Sandals arrival lounge. Didn’t fully use the Sandals arrival lounge as we utilized Club MoBay arrival and departure VIP services for our vacation and will review those positive experiences separately. Skycaps and shuttle drivers are not employed by Sandals, so tips were appropriate for their services. We tipped $5 US on each end to the skycap and $10 US on each end to the shuttle driver. A skycap took our two bags to the resort shuttle and we began the 90 minute ride to the resort. The shuttle trip included a 20 minute rest stop along the way which allowed guests a bathroom break and an opportunity to contribute to the local economy.Arrival at the resort was not nearly as smooth as we’ve experienced with Sandals in the past (one of the minor exceptions previously mentioned). The staff did not seem to be prepared for our arrival. We, along with four other couples, were taken to the Club Sandals lounge for check-in. While the staff was pleasant and professional, check-in itself was disjointed at best with the staff repeatedly misidentifying couples and their level of accommodations. In booking Butler-level accommodations, we expected check-in to occur in our room with one of our butlers rather than in the small, crowded Club Sandals lounge. A representative of the resort general manager identified herself to me and my wife, and welcomed us on behalf of the general manager, but this gracious effort was lost in the hurriedness of our surroundings. Again, the check-in experience was not bad, but could’ve been so much better.After 20 to 30 minutes in the Club Sandals lounge, we were met by one of our butlers, Daron, and taken to our room; a Honeymoon Beachfront Butler Suite. Our butler team of Basil and Daron were absolutely fantastic! Having never experienced Sandals’ butler level of service, Basil and Daron anticipated what we wanted even before we asked for it. They reserved a wonderful spot on the beach every day of our stay, made our dinner reservations, ensured housekeeping was done while we were out enjoying the beach, and took care of several special requests that helped make our vacation even more memorable. I can think of nothing that they could’ve done to make our vacation any more fabulous!We stayed in a Honeymoon Beachfront Butler Suite. These suites are slightly set back off of the beach, but their location, design, and character are loaded with positive and relaxing Caribbean vibe and ambience! That said, our suite presented the other minor exception to an otherwise wonderful week. The Honeymoon Beachfront Butler Suites are in need of a little update. Notice that I used update versus renovate. These suite ooze the laidback environment of Negril and complete renovation could hurt the ambience and atmosphere that these suites provide. But while relatively comfortable, the furnishings and fixtures were well worn; the upholstered cushions had lost their plushness, the dresser drawers were in need of repair as they did not open/close smoothly, the lighting in the bathroom and sink areas were quite dim, the toilet ran constantly, and the few available electric outlets would not hold a plug for charging personal electronic devices. These suites are single level on either the first or second floor with entrance to the suite via the patio (first floor) or balcony (second floor) that overlook the manicured croquet lawn with views of the Caribbean Sea just beyond. We took advantage of the 24 hour room service and twice enjoyed breakfast on our first floor patio. All-in-all, our suite was a spacious, accommodating, and comfortable space that just needed a little TLC. Please note that these suites back close to the main highway and there can be quite a lot of road noise in the suite.The service at Sandals Negril was impeccable. Of course our excellent butlers, Daron and Basil, set a very high bar for comparison, but all of the service staff that we met provided us with positive experiences. In addition to our butler team, Chris, the bartender at the Piano Bar was awesome! Also, our waiter at Cocina Romano (we had dinner there twice) was very good—I just wish that I could remember his name.The food was good and sometimes very good. Had breakfast at Bayside, Barefoot, and with room service. All was quite good, but did not care for battling the birds during breakfast at Bayside. Lunch was always pizza on the beach brought by one of our butlers. We had dinner at all restaurants except Barefoot. All were good, but we thought Cocina Romano was very good. Would’ve liked more menu selections at the other restaurants and perhaps a rotating dinner menu at Bayside. Would also have liked to have a sweet white wine (Moscato) made available as one of the complimentary wine selections.Other than a few minor issues, we had a great week at Sandals Negril and look forward to returning there again someday!
Can't say enough good about Sandals Negril. The staff...EVERY ONE of them exceptional. Kendra , Bayside Hostess, is WONDERFUL and so loving. Lifeguards, Rener (Moses), Orlando, Roger are the best! Princess, Housekeeping was great!! ; Deidre, Front Desk, Marcia Lee, Travel and Loyalty are other names that need mentioning. There are many more names I could mention but let's just say again, EVERY staff MEMBER at Sandals, Negril are the BEST.
If I could give this place 10 stars I would, everything was amazing !! From the arrival and the airport to the departure from the resort , the staff at Sandals provide an amazing experience .We could not get over the dining , always high class , every restaurant is beachfront!Motorized sports were amazing !!! We picked this resort so we could wakeboard . Carlton the driver delivered every time ! We own a wakeboard boat at home and we're so excited when we found out Sandals Negril included Wakeboarding , Carlton was an excellent driver (and we are picky!) , wakeboarded up to 5 times a day , hardly ever a wait! Glad they offered good equipment and a Mastercraft tow boat . Snorkeling was amazing , another reason we picked Sandals Negril, we enjoyed Big Poppa and his Big personality , loved his spirit , and he delivered an excellent snorkeling trip (we did this every day sometimes twice a day!) . Last but not least we enjoyed having photographers , we have 4 kids so we hardly get pictures of ourselves , Dale the photographer produced some amazing keepsake photos of my husband and I on our 15 year anniversary . Hands down the best place we have ever visited , Sandals Negril will not disappoint !
This was our second visit to Sandal's Negril and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.I don't think the staff was as friendly as last year but there were for outstanding persons we interacted with time and again. Vivienne from the spa, Ian from the Bistro and our Butlers Niesha and Myron. Niesha and Myron took care of everything before we even asked! They truly do pamper without being intrusive.We stayed in a swim up room and the water was chilly. That would be one suggestion is that they heat the pools.
