“Simply perfect vacation”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Where to start? My boyfriend of 7 years and I finally decided to take time for ourselves and try an all inclusive vacation and decided on Sandals Negril. From start to finsh we had a wonderful 4 nights, definitly not long enough. The staff truly are what make this resort awesome, most remember your name from day 1. Some who really stuck out where T-Bone (photographer) who shot some beautiful photos for us (95% of our 15 pictures purchased were from him =) they are a little pricey but equal to what most would spend for good quality photos at home. And Sandra from the piano bar was always happy to see us. Also a lady who we became very close with (who sad to say I can't remember her name) but we would come back to our chairs on the beach with fresh drinks often and she was always up and down the beach asking if we needed anything. She was amazing! The beach is narrow but never seemed to crowded and could always find some chairs with shade (if wanted) plenty of towels as well.
We were in room 5322 which is on the 3rd floor forgot what building but was beautiful and had an amazing view of the ocean! It was a renovated room and we were very happy with it. Honestly there isn't anything we can complain about ourselves since our visit personally was amazing.
It never felt crowded or to much of a party scene. Yes you can hear traffic from the road but it certainly didn't keep me up after a day of drinking and sunbathing in paradise =) there was plenty of food drinks and water, pool and land activities to do both day and night! Everyone you saw said hello and asked how our stay was going. Again the staff truly make this place awesome and we cannot wait to save up money for our next trip hopefully next year. If were not off to the new Sandals in Grenada we will without a doubt come back to Negril! =) Yea Mon, respect!

This was an amazing eight days of Absolute paradise, from the turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, sunshine and warm temperatures you got heaven. I can't say enough about the kind gentle and loving Jamaican people they need to resort experience what it was.
The resort was on a smaller scale from that in Montego Bay where we were last year but only in size, the heart and soul of the staff were gigantic. The GM Andre was forever present and engaging with guests as was Edward, the hotel manager.
To begin each morning with Mimosas and the smiles of Kendra Tristan Wadea Diallo and Terryann (Trouble) Melisha, Faithlyn, and foremost Suzette, made each day start amazing.
The playmakers, Willie, Laurie Samantha, Aminah, Oliver, and others made each day's and night's entertainment so enjoyable.
Smiley the photographer was one of the greatest young men we have ever met!
Lois at the pool bar always seem to know just what you were drinking and arrive offering up a cool one-even when you might have had enough. Plus we were always anxious each day to see what colorful socks she was wearing.
The Kimonos, Cucino and Barefoot by the Sea were our favorites,the food was always excellent- kudos to Misja!!
Not only did we make new friends with the other guests this trip, but friends with the wonderful staff. We're hoping that next year, Tavena and Eric, trainees at the pool bar, will be there with permanent jobs. We really loved these two!
When we left for home-we really felt as though we were leaving friends!!! Where already counting the weeks until we COME SOON BACK!!
Until then- ONE LOVE!
Thanks for a great 8 days

my wife and I had a great time during our week stay, leaving the kids home! Butlers Denato and Sean took great care of us and were quick with ideas on how to spend out time--"yeah mon, no problem!" (the song list they put together for us was a really nice treat)

great weather, very clean, very friendly service all around. safe, easy walks up the beach and ample snorkeling. very social group of guests--skewed toward 50s and 60s but plenty in their 40s, like us. the layout of the place made it easy to hide away or being in the middle of a group.

Wonderful time with old friends and new friends. Food was good, needed a little more variety. Rooms were a little outdated and the property as a whole needed some work. The service was excellent, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We booked a private car for our excursions and we were able to make better use of our time.

We returned “home” to Sandals Negril for our 10th Anniversary in January 2014. We had a nice two story suite, which was a bit of a drawback for cleaning and maintaining scuba gear, but we improvised. For us a room is secondary, as we spend little time in the room – we go for the water, warmth and sun!

We opted for butler service this trip. Our main butler was Denato. He had a refreshing drink waiting for us each time we got off the dive or snorkel boat and our favorite “adult” beverage when we ended our water activity for that day. Our beach chairs were reserved for us each morning (next to the dive boat), he brought us anything (and everything) we requested, made our dinner reservations and personally escorted us to our dining locations. If you choose butler service, Denato comes highly recommended.

The room was cleaned each day, and on several occasions we were surprised with our room being decorated with flowers, chocolate and animals made from towels, such as swan, elephant and even a monkey! Once again thank you Denato.
We like the informality of the buffet, thus opted for them when they were available. We heard the “specialty” restaurants were all very good – we limited ourselves to the French cuisine (Sandals select members dinner on Wednesday evenings), Caribbean and Japanese hibachi style. Don’t miss the Wednesday night Chocolate buffet. It was Darlene’s favorite!

One of our highlights was when Sanje,the Head Chef cooked the fresh Lion fish that Jerry captured. There was enough to serve them steamed and grilled – they were delicious.
We want to say a very special thank you to the facility and watersports management staff for allowing the dive team to join us for dinner. It was a terrific evening and we learned a great deal about the Jamaican culture.

Overall, the entire staff went out of their way to help, had smiles on their faces and were friendly. We must also thank “Smiley”, our photographer. He was with us snorkeling, diving and took our sunset pictures. “Smiley” was just that, smiley! We highly recommend you look for him when it comes to photography.

We saved the best for last- the water sports and dive team gets our Diamond rating for their professionalism and hospitality. We were very impressed with the SCUBA dive safety procedure upgrades since our last visit. Specifically we want to recognize the Watersports Management Barney and Supervisor Breaker for helping us out whenever we had a question or request – thank you again. Kudos to the entire dive team! Wayne, Kemar, Cleon, Phillip, Emron and Captain Hook – we had a great time! You made our trip even better. We cannot wait to see you again next year! We all have many choices when it comes to selecting a vacation site. For us it is a no brainer – we plan to return “home” again next year. We have already booked our trip back to Sandals Negril, and look forward to seeing our Sandals family again.

Room Tip: Choose a beach-view room for the best sunsets!

This was our first time at a Sandals resort. It was amazing, the staff was very friendly. We had the swim up butler suite. For some reason we had two butlers ( Kendrick & Jerry) both were awesome. The staff who took care of the activities were fantastic. (thanks Lori and Vanessa) Unlimited water sports was a plus. All of the restaurants were outstanding. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Corner swim up suite, great view and sunny.

Everything was wonderful! The room the food and the service!! The staff are the best..They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The beach is so pretty. There are pleanty of activities to do. We did one excersion and went horse back riding through the hills and it was beautiful. I like Negril becasue it is not built up and you get a real feel for the country and the wonderful people that live there.

Room Tip: We like the top floor great views and it is peaceful!
