Just returned from Negril's 10 star 5 star! Open just over three weeks the Azul Sensatori Jamaica is a boutique resort of the highest calibre. It's in the midst of a 'soft opening' which means there are very few guests and a multitude of staff at all levels who can't do enough to make your stay incredible! Everyone is warm, helpful, working hard and exceptionally well trained and all to the last person of course affording us that world renowned Jamaican friendliness!
The ladies at the coffee bar make terrific cappuccino, smoothies, chocolate milk shakes and a host of other delicious drinks - thank you especially Paula for the awesome service I came to expect every morning...
Entertainment crew inspired me to check out my vocal chords and get my dancin' shoes on ... Make sure to challenge them to full contact bocci on the beach - thanks especially Shelley, Michelle, and Oryan.
The dining staff, cooks, executive chefs were all exceptionally well prepared for us. Thank you executive chef Tassaine for the private cooking lesson Thursday where we were taught how to prepare Ackee salt fish and Bammy - Jamaica's national dish.
You will not find buffets here - which we did not want - excepting a beautiful fresh 'food display' every morning in the main open air restaurant. Cherise served us with charm and a beautiful smile every morning! The other restaurants are all a la carte and if you like fresh seafood and local cuisine it's prepared and served beautifully at all four. No reservations required anywhere. You will find an extensive wine list beyond the quite palatable 'all inclusive' wines affording exceptional choice.
We did experience construction noise during this soft opening however management is trying hard to manage this as best they can. We're told the resort should be fully completed by April.
The private beach has beautiful white sand for swimming and is groomed all day, as well as gorgeous private beds and lounges with a resort no pre-reserving policy (oh by the way it's not necessary) and bar staff ready to serve! Thanks to all of you especially Allee, Sheryl and Cleon for his crazy dancing behind the bar. Management is doing something right as the staff appear ready attentive relaxed and will break into dance when the moment feels right and the live music is hot - even the guys painting and planting!
Every room is beautifully appointed although not all complete yet - and all afford fantastic sunset views of the Caribbean!
Last but not least we had kid glove service with our exceptional concierge - Obrien - who made our stay most comfortable and complete!
We've just returned home fully rested and absolutely look forward to going back when the Azul Sensatori Jamaica is fully completed - it is a beautiful boutique hotel - the nicest resort we have stayed at in the Caribbean so far!
