An amazing location with really incredible staff! A special shout out to Delly who’s the best emcee and always made sure the crew was having a great time! And I can’t forget the live entertainment which was really spectacular. Definitely recommend!

This was our 2nd time here and yet again it was amazing and mostly because of the wonderful and sweet staff. We love the personality of the resort and our kids love it as well and adore the waterpark area and restaurants. I miss seeing my boys be able to walk over together, hand in hand to YoYo's and get what they want while we as adults were nearby and could watch them. Everything is compact here and that is what makes it perfect for families with small children.
I wanted to highlight the staff that went above and beyond: Nickesha from sales was there with a warm welcome and even took time to be with my boys while I reserved a few things with concierge. Oliver, Revene, and Creton in watersports went above and beyond and always interact with the family in a way that you feel like family. Selena and Sabrina in concierge were so sweet! There is no one like Leon in Stewfish who took time to step away from a busy kitchen to say hello without the slightest hesitation. That's huge. He always has a smile on his face. Keno, Delly, and Kemar in pool service and bar service stood out to us and recognized us and always made it a point to interact and smile and see what we needed. Delly's memory is amazing!
Can't wait to come back here.
Great family fun at Beaches Negril
Feb 01, 2023
We just got back from Beaches Negril last week. We had an overall great experience. My 4 year old and myself were travelling with my parents and my brother/sister-in-law and my 2 nieces, aged 5 and 9.
All of the kids had a wonderful time with the Sesame shows, entertainment, Thursday night parade and beach party and the Sesame Street breakfast. The breakfast was at an additional cost but totally worth it! We also did the Dolphin Cove excursion, which was amazing. I have travelled many times throughout Jamaica but my first time to Negril and the beach is worth the brutal hour and half ride from the airport! The kids loved the lazy river and water park and my older niece loved the larger water slides. The white sand beach is where we spent the majority of our time!
The food was good. I’ve been to other Sandals/Iberostar/Rui resorts for adults where the food was better but for the kids and my father, who’s a picky eater, everything was good. We did not visit the Venetian or the Soy but the Japanese is a must and LOTS of fun! Yo-yo’s self serve frozen yogurt place also a highlight!
The only reason this review is not receiving 5 stars is our disappointment with the rooms. I have been in more updated rooms and resorts before but everything was very clean! Our disappointment came from the room assignments. We had booked this trip over 8 months ago and were assured our rooms would be close together and possibly even adjoining rooms. I followed up on this request many times in the month before we travelled. To our disappointment, we had 2 rooms in one building and another room in the adjacent building - we were told the resort was at full capacity and we couldn’t be changed. I had also read multiple reviews concerning construction at the resort and was told on at least 3 occasions that the construction would not be blocking any views, etc. Unfortunately my parents’ room view/balcony was almost completely blocked off by construction. We had booked Beachfront Concierge King/Double rooms and one of those rooms cannot be considered beachfront if there is no view. It would have been nice to have been compensated in some way - even resort credit; anything as an acknowledgement that yes construction is blocking your room and we appreciate your understanding. Regardless, we chose not to dwell on this and just focus on having a good time. Just wanted to mention it here as the reality.
We rented cabanas on the beach for 2 days and it was great to have a place to chill with the kids.
Overall a good time with wonderful memories!
