Which is the better beach area: Montego Bay or Negril?

My fiancee and I are planning our honeymoon to Jamaica. We are wondering which resort has the better beach. Grand Ilberostar Rose Hall/Secrets Wild Orchid in the Montego Bay area or the Couples in Negril?

Negril, hands down - Iberostar is a man made beach - Negril is a 7 mile white sand natural beach

Couples > Iberostar > Secrets.

(in terms of beach and, well, my personal ranking in general).

@Nikko

What do you mean by man made beach?

I'm going to Grand hall In August.

Is it salt water? Is it clean?

Thanks for the info

A man made beach is just what it says - They clear out an area along the coast and dump sand - it's still the ocean - but it's not a natural beach.

["Man made" is pretty self-explanatory, isn't it?]

Apparently it wasn't self explanatory if they had to ask the question. Remember no question is a stupid question ;-)

Thanks for the info. We have man made beaches here an there not salt watered and full of sea weeds ect. I just want to know it will be the same at the Grand.

""Man made" is pretty self-explanatory, isn't it?""

Thanks for the excellent contribution. Not much to do with your life?

To answer your question there's types of green seaweed that are found in fresh water.

I know how a man beach is made.

I simply asked of it's clean and there's seaweeds..... Just so I could have an idea of what to expect.

If you don't like the question why waste your time answering?
