My husband and I stayed a week recently at Sandals Negril and to be honest....we were both disappointed with many aspects of the resort. The water was full of seaweed so you couldn't walk out more than 10 feet in the water without being tangled up in it....yuck. The beach itself is quite narrow. The food was just 'ok'.....until the last two meals. One at the Italian restaurant and one at the French bistro.
The newly renovated rooms.....though the décor and colors are lovely.....the rooms are very small compared to many other newer all-inclusive resorts. The bathrooms were VERY cramped and the shower head was so small it took me forever to rinse my hair out.
If you don't pay for the butler or concierge service you feel quite like a second class citizen there. You can't even get room service.
For what you pay for the 'Sandals' brand.....you would expect to be 'wowed'. There is so much competition out there that I think Sandals needs to up it's game. Including front desk service. Most everyone seemed 'aloof'....like they didn't really have time to talk to you.
I think the owner, Mr Stewart, should try the service, food, and accommodations at one of the Grand Velas Resorts to see what his competition is like.
