I was overall very pleased with my 4 night stay at the Grand Lido Negril. Transfer from Montego Bay was smooth, as was check in. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with cocktails and got to relax in the lobby while everything was taken care of for us. Our room was far from the main area, near the clothing optional beach, but the view was excellent and I liked the seclusion. Also the rooms on the clothing optional side are much further from the main road so they are quieter.
The room was fine - bed was comfortable, good pillows and such. However it was very musty and damp and no matter what we did we could not get rid of the musty feeling. Housekeeping was great, no complaints there. Room service was also good - a little late one morning with our breakfast but we weren't in a hurry anyway.
Watersports staff was excellent, we went waterskiing, sailing, snorkeling and enjoyed all of it. I was really pleased that all the watersports were included for no extra charge - you don't always see that at an all-inclusive.
Food - this was definitely uneven. I thought the buffet at breakfast and lunch had a good variety. the fruit was super fresh and delicious. The food at the Italian restaurant, La Pasta, however, was horrendous. Just awful. Not even close to even an Olive Garden. Food at the Jamaica place was good though, and decent at Cafe Lido as well. We didn't try the French place or the Japanese place though so I can't speak to the food quality there.
Service overall was good. I am female and was traveling with a another female friend and some of the male staff definitely made us uncomfortable but I think that would have been the same anywhere.
Spa - the spa was great. my friend and I each got a beachside massage which was amazing. Loved it.
Entertainment - nothing special. We usually ate a late dinner and then went to bed - the "nightclub" looked like an 80's prom and smelled funky so we did not spend any time there.
Bar - service was pretty good but often took some time - they made most of the frozen drinks from scratch so that could take a while. The Chocolate Monkey was delicious and we drank lots of those! wine and champagne was not special so we stuck to mixed drinks.
The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. There was security roaming around at all times and I felt very safe.
Overall, it was a nice resort that is showing its age (almost 20 years now) - rooms could stand to be renovated, and the food is definitely not 4 or 5 star caliber. That being said, we had a lovely time there, and I thought it was a good value for the money. Also I LOVED that there were no kids!!
