This was our best Family vacation in a long time! We were a family of 4, with adult children. We specifically chose Jamaica because we already knew the people are friendlier here than other places we have been to. We didn't know that September was a slow period for Beaches, Negril. And that is probably what made it so great. The beach, pool, and restaurants were not crowded. It was very quiet, which is exactly what we were looking for. We stayed in the Tropical Beachfront 2-bedroom Grand Butler Family Suite, which was located on the 3d floor of Montpelier Bldg. It was quiet and had a beautiful view. While there, we also did see 4 weddings from our room. We were hesitant in doing the Butler service since we didn't have a great experience at a different Sandals resort last year. However, our Butlers, Shane and Richard, completely changed our view on Butler service. They were excellent in every aspect. You would never have known they had only been doing the Butler service for a few months. They introduced us to Jamaican cuisine, such as ackee and salt fish and the delicious Jamaican patties! They brought us various mixed drinks for us to try, and a couple were their specialties. Unfortunately, I cannot remember what the specialty drinks were called, but I definitely would recommend the dirty banana. Shane and Richard were very attentive and went above and beyond what was expected. They would remember the little things. For example, my one daughter really likes green olives. Richard would always include a small bowl of green olives with lunch or snack in our room. It was great just getting to know them. We definitely will request them again at our next visit in a couple of years. The entertainment team was excellent. Shmoya has a beautiful voice, and all the shows were choreographed beautifully. Food was great. Definitely recommend Mariachis for breakfast and Yaku for dinner. Overall, this was exactly the family vacation we were looking for.

We’ve had an amazing time at Beaches Negril! This was our first time to bring our kids to an all-inclusive resort and we loved the entire experience! You just can’t beat the picture perfect Seven Mile beach! It’s absolute paradise and the water is perfect! (But watch out for the sand fleas and bring bug repellent if you’ll be on the sand at dusk.) The room was cleaned perfectly everyday, thank you to the housekeeping staff! They even found a necklace for us that my son lost in the room. The food was amazing, shout-out to Edgar, a fellow Texan and chef at the Madrigal restaurant, the Mexican food was delicious. One of our favorite dinners was Kimonos, the hibachi restaurant. Not only was the food great, but the staff put on a memorable show! If you want the best pina coloda you’ve ever had, go to the main pool bar and ask Rojay to make you his special! The entertainment staff were the icing on the cake! Thank you to Adrian, Delly, and Nae Nae for your energy and fun! They always included our kids and made sure they had the best time!
There are good people on this earth…

I never take the time to write a review but I have to for this resort. Me and my family travel a lot we have been to. Lot of resorts and hotels but never felt the need to write a review as I do for this particular resort.
My family (husband 2 year old and three year old plus my mom) were here for 6 nights. From the moment we arrived and we’re driven to the resort 1.5 hour ride we felt welcomed. Our driver Darryl was so polite and kind he shared stories and experiences he even stopped at the local jerk chicken shack (BIGS in Green island is. MUST!!!!) entering the resort we were greeted by such kind people given us refreshments and cookies for the kids. BY the way I highly recommend getting the VIP airport experience it was worth every penny you will thank me later.
I can write a novel about how nice everyone was but I particular want to commend the hospitality on Nae Nae- who comforted my kids when they were having temper tantrums Lesmor who always made us feel welcome and Mario who served us the best drinks and shared his knowledge.
Like I said I don’t write reviews because honestly my time is limited with two young toddlers.
Of course nothing is perfect but I do want to share some tips rather than giving cons. If you wish to deny the turn down service because they do coke late at least for us (8-9pm) they knock on your door and it woke up my kids a couple times but I do recommend after putting the littlest to bed to put the do not disturb sign on. The hibachi restaurant was great however it was So hot so def bring your personal fans with you!!
I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!!

Adrian is an amazing host. The showcase at 8 and the karokkee that came after was absolutely a vibe!! Give that man a raise and make sure to take care of him. He kept the audience engaged and lively the entire time. The resort itself is absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are very clean and the staff is unbelievably friendly and welcoming. Never wavering to accommodate every need for every guest. I highly recommend that everyone looking to vacation in Jamaica book here!!!!!
GIRLS TRIP- from safety to staff

I can’t even begin to explain the LOVE we have for this resort. Not only did we feel like QUEENS, the staff memorized our names, the beach was the warmest, clearest, calmest water I’ve ever been to, the food was very good, and the resort was ALIVE.
It was totally safe for a girls trip and had more than enough to do on the resort.
We want to give special love to the people who made us feel amazing:
Fabian- from water sports SUCH A GEM
Kevin - security at the club
Courtney from photos
Donna from spa Went Above and Beyond
Herbert Clarke - recommend for safe transportation! He got us home safely from Ricks Cafe which was a blast- definitely go during the day it completely dies down after 7pm
