We had the pleasure of staying in the Club Level Paradise Building Room 5342 from Jun 7-14. Rooms- Very nice, comfy bed and beautiful view of the ocean from the patio. Bathroom had a lovely waterfall shower head from the ceiling. Toiletries provided were Red Lane products and the bar was stocked with wine, beer, liquors and water/soda. Pool- Spent most afternoons here, chairs are nice, always a seat available and entertainment was good. Sasha, Crystal, Jordini, Quan and Kimberly will take good care of you! And Tracea always made sure your drinks were full. Ocean, snorkeling and water sports- The water is fabulous and the beach is exquisite. You can truly see sting rays, starfish and crabs just walking in the morning. In fact, you can get a glimpse of a little crab doing laps in the pool if you get up early enough in the morning. The best part of Sandals is the water sports included. We went snorkeling every day and saw so many water creatures in the different locations. Mudslide and 8ball are AWESOME and will make your snorkeling experience fun- even if it is your first time, try it! If you get a chance... pay the $35 to go night snorkeling, they will show you turtles, squid, lobster, eel as a few examples. So worth it! In addition, the paddle boarding, kayaks and even the aqua trike were fun! Food- We spent most of our breakfast and lunches at Bayside. Make sure you tell Kendra Hi, she will take good care of you! Check out the Sundowner, Kimonos(need reservations) and Cucina Romana (reservations) all very enjoyable dining. Club- My husband and I are fairly low maintenance but we did have Kyomi help us with a birthday celebration. They are very helpful with any of your vacations needs. Thanks for making it memorable! Wedding celebration- The wedding we attended was beautiful, how can you go wrong with a beach wedding! We had the opportunity to enjoy a sunset catamaran cruise as part of the wedding celebrations, which was truly a treat! Sandals does beautiful destination weddings- why not take the party to Jamaica! Photos- You are making memories! Smile for the photographers and go look at the pictures before you leave. They do a great job, even jump into the ocean to take snorkeling pictures. My only problem was on our last day.... when it rains, the tile is really slick. I unfortunately slipped and hit my head and ended up with a concussion. First, I want to thank all the staff who helped me and took care of me- especially the nurse (I forgot her name in all the chaos). I would just ask Sandals to please, please put mats or non-slip strips on the ramps leaving the main building where Bayside is located. Thankful I am okay but it was a stressful end to a vacation as we planned to go back to home. Thanks so much to all the staff that works so hard to make your vacation so special!
Amazing and relaxing place for a honeymoon. I would definitely recommend getting a butler! Delicious food and drinks! Get their signature Bob Marley drink! The staff are very friendly! My favorite employees were Kendrick, Wadea, Jerome, Chris, Rodine, Omar, Taffarie, Rakeesh, Kendra, Renardo, Martin, Terianne, and Cleveland! I would just recommend bringing bug spray cuz the sand fleas are worse than mosquitoes!
"Wedding at Sandals Negril... "
My husband & I were married on the beach at Sandals Negril last week... where do I even begin, this resort is absolutely beautiful!! The views, the service, the amenities, the food!! Everything was fantastic! We had a butler level suite & our 2 butlers, Daron & Basil, made our stay very memorable! We were spoiled by them all week! The wedding team was top notch! Shelley-Ann & Andrea made our day more perfect than I could have ever imagined! The grounds are well maintained, the water sports are fun & always made to feel safe! The snorkeling was fantastic! This resort has become my favorite destination! The staff makes you want to return!! The GM, David, is always on the property making sure you are well taken care of! The salon & spa are fabulous! The only negative that I could say is that the butler suites need a bit of updating.. but they are still nice. The entertainment was very enjoyable. Make sure you see Chris at the piano bar for a Bob Marley!! We miss it already! Can't wait to go back next year!! Thank you Sandals Negril for our perfect wedding & honeymoon!!
"An Unexpected Treat"
Having visited Negril 8-10 times over the past 30 years, we've stayed in a number of different resorts. Because we always associated Sandals with a chain mentality due to the breadth of their marketing, we avoided them. For a variety of reasons, we were in the market for an easily arranged, short duration beach vacation and investigated the Sandals accommodations. Wanting it to be a special occasion, I opted for a higher end room that included butler service. My wife and I were very surprised at the beauty of the grounds, the resort-wide accessibility of the beach and delighted with the fringe benefits of butler service. Our room's design was contemporary, and just as pictured on the website, a relief as sometimes rooms are nothing like was is displayed. Our butler reserved chairs for us on the beach each morning so we didn't have to get up early to try and claim them for ourselves. Each day also found our own personal ice chest at the foot of our chairs, stocked with ice and our favorite beverages, a welcome touch. We were given a cell phone to contact our butler from any location in the resort, though I suspect it would have worked from anywhere on the island with cell service! The beach was manicured each day and any debris removed. It was so nice to have our room literally 20 steps from our chairs beneath permanent thatched umbrella, themselves just 20 steps more from the water. Sound spoiled' It absolutely was, exactly the special getaway I had hoped for. We had several butlers rotate on shifts, our favorite was Kevin Biggs. Although still in training (butlers must complete rigorous training and excel at customer service), Kevin already displayed the skills, confidence and attention to detail that normally come with years of top-flight experience. I'm sure it was just coincidence, but everywhere we walked in the resort Kevin would just pop up, always inquiring as to our needs and desires. Mark, another excellent butler, even made our departure the last morning a pleasure. We had to take an 11a shuttle back to Montego Bay for our flight, meaning we would miss lunch. I asked about the possibility of a "signature" hamburger and fries from the resort Bistro on the beach. He explained that the Bistro normally wasn't open at 10:30a but that he would do his best to make it happen. Minutes before we were to board the shuttle, Kevin brought us water bottles for the ride and Mark appeared with hot burger, fries and condiments! If you haven't already surmised, we LOVED our vacation there and would whole heartedly recommend Sandals in Negril. While the rooms with butler service are a premium experience and not for all budgets, the entire resort is lovely and with the uniform access to lovely beach, a no-brainer choice for a Jamaican holiday.
It was just what we needed! Totally "unplugged", spoiled, week together! The staff was amazing, food fabulous and entertainment spectacular! The only thing I would change is the month we went (May) is their rainy season, however it did not rain all day, just everyday at some point.
