We spent a week at this awesome property. It seemed too less of a time for all of us and will definitely like to spend more time there in the future. Here are some details about this resort.
Beaches Negril is about an hour and half away from the Montego Bay airport. Beaches has done a great job of having a lounge at the airport where they pick ur bags, give u glass of beer and get u over to the bus for transport.
We had booked a deluxe beachfront honeymoon suite with concierge ( it's all the same , classification doesn't matter I think) On arrival our check in was quick with the concierge service. In all we didn't find any use of concierge service other than check in. Concierge was helpful but not very effective in getting a cabana and so forth. BTW please book ur cabana early if u can as they r booked solid ( for a hefty price of $ 150)
Our room was nice and comfy, nothing to rave about but it had a king bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed could hold 1 small and 1 bigger kid. ( ours are 9 & 6 ) a little tight for a sofa bed. The room was very clean and maintained very nicely. Only complaint we had was a bad plunger in the toilet, not a biggie. Rooms was stocked well at all times. The view was ok if not great. The rooms are all in good proximity to everything in the resort. If u have a choice try to stay away from building 1 or 9 as they hug the next door resorts and may get a little noisy at times.
Restaurants for breakfast,lunch and dinner were pretty good. Good choice of food and good quality all around. We never tried the hibachi restaurant as it can only be booked at the front desk at 9 am every day! We never made it there in time. But I don't think we missed it either as kids were very happy with the other choices. Don't miss fresh coconut water by the beach every mon and Thursday . Dino's pizza is a great change to the routine too. Thursday night beach buffet gets a little crowded but still a fun place to hang out for the entertainment later at night.
We used the beaches braiding services and spa services at the beach, which were nice.
You will come across lots of folks on the beach selling things. Beaches security is always around watching. These local folks are ok if u want to buy something, we used them for parasailing and jet skiing . Both were safe and had no issues with it.
We went to Martha brea bamboo rafting on an excursion, very nice and quiet place. We also did Dunn's falls and mystic mountain with zip lining , bobsled. It's a must do thing ( about 3 hours from Negril ), would highly recommend it if u don't mind traveling far. These tours were very safe.
In all, Beaches Negril is a wonderful property with one of the best beach we have seen with good food and activities for all ages.
