After returning from holiday I always say I’m going to write a review and never do, well this time I just had to...
My husband and I stayed at the Azul Sensatori Negril for our honeymoon arriving on Monday 5th May. We opted to travel to Gatwick so we could fly on the Dreamliner rather than going from our most convenient airport and we couldn't have been happier. Much more leg room, comfortable seats, a wide variety of films / games and a vast selection of drinks and snacks. After arriving at Montego Bay airport we travelled the 1.5 hour trip to Negril passing through some beautiful scenery and many small towns and villages. It was a joy to sit back, relax and absorb our first taste of beautiful Jamaica this way.
Upon arriving at the hotel and seeing the beautiful lobby which lead out to the pool area overlooking the shimmering sea I knew we’d arrived somewhere special...
Our check in was quick, easy and hassle free – the cold flannel and glass of champagne was very much appreciated! Anna showed us to our room (6207) and explained how everything worked. We stayed on the second floor overlooking the adults only pool with the ocean just behind. Our room was amazing – yes it was very white and modern but for us it only added to the luxurious feel we experienced at this hotel.
We ate at all the restaurants and couldn’t fault a single meal. There was such a wide variety of choice that even the fussiest of eaters would find something they liked. The Italian was possibly our favourite – the steak is amazing! The portion sizes were perfect for us however some people found them to be a little on the small size. If you ask for a larger portion they are more than happy to provide this for you.
Absolutely breathtaking! Each morning we enjoyed getting up early and walking along the beach before breakfast. The sand is pure white and the sea crystal clear. We’ve travelled to numerous destinations in the Caribbean and this was one of the very best. Each day we would see a variety of rays and starfish. There are a few beach vendors walking up and down the beach but hey they are just trying to earn a living, a simple no thank you and they don’t ask you again. Look out for Rodger – he’s a real sweetie and just wants to have a chat.
The pools are small in size but just perfect for the hotel. There are two swim up pools both offering a wide variety of drinks and cocktails – try the Bob Marleys!
The staff truly do make this hotel and all work so hard. Nothing is too much trouble and they genuinely want to make you feel welcome and happy. Martino (Seven Mile bar) and Christina (pool bar) were both fantastic and made us laugh every day. Dwight in the Palms Restaurant always greeted us with a huge smile and a friendly face. The staff here really do work so hard and deserve the recognition.
We booked two trips through Thomson – Retail and Ricks and Dolphin Cove. Personally I wouldn't recommend Retail and Ricks, Ricks Cafe was OK and the retail part lasted longer than was really needed. However, Dolphin Cove was amazing! Worth every single penny and more!
We also booked the Sunset Cruise via the watersports centre on the beach with Martin. This was amazing and so much fun! We left around three in the afternoon and sailed along seven mile beach. About 30 minutes in we were joined by two dolphins. Further down the beach three more dolphins joined us :-)
Overall we had an amazing time at this hotel and couldn't fault it in any single way. If you are thinking about booking I’d say go for it! I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
