Just returned from our WeddingMoon at Couples Negril and our wedding and our stay were OUTSTANDING. Upon arriving to the hotel, you are greeted with smiles, drinks and a refreshing wet face towel. The check-in was quick and to the point, your bags are delivered to your room, in a matter of minutes as you get a quick orientation of the resort. A more detail orientation is given around 10am each morning.
Wedding- We went with the Tropical Package, 13 pictures and we added 7 more. Our wedding was amazing loved getting married on the beach. Let me start by saying that once you talk to Kenisha you will know that you’re in good hands. The wedding ceremony lasted 15 minutes, followed by signing of marriage certificate, cutting of the cake and a toast. The Resort Photographer (RP) will be on hand to capture your day. RP, printed photo’s are crisp and removes any unwanted background scenery. My issue is the stored images on the CD, they are low quality as you will be informed of when you try to reprint anything larger than a 3x5 image. I guess this has to do with the CD or the program used to transfer the images to the CD. Either way, we are glad we hired an outside Photographer to capture our day, SAAB photography, we used the First Associates, their work looked great and only cost $1700 for 4 hours (big thanks to Chris and Chantal). Two photographers are always better than one. Chris and Chantal, captured us getting ready, first sight, wedding, and we shot a ton of photo’s after the ceremony. They had a keen eye and insured they caught the perfect picture. The resort photographer, did a good job capturing some great shots, my only issue is the images on the CD. Like I said the prints, the resort gives you are great, but the CD images are low quality and will have to be taken to a professional developer to improve the quality of the images.
Room- Our room (8303) was very nice, it did show some signs of aging, as most Caribbean Resorts do, but nothing that would keep me from enjoying the room. Renovation to update the room will start in the summer and continue into 2014. Let’s go down the check list for the room; Flat screen TV, Mini fridge, beach towels, bathing towels and wash clothes, Information detailing resort daily activities, restaurants, entertainment and vendors (very helpful), balcony with a great view of the garden and a small ocean view, in room air-conditioning unit, spacious bathroom, Ipod Ihome docking station and turn down service every night, before you go night, night!
Service- The Mini Bar service was outstanding! You pick up the phone call the front desk and in less than 15minutes, your requested items are delivered to the room, who could ask for more. Housekeeping was outstanding and kept our room looking great. Our room was cleaned most days before lunch. The day of our wedding we requested that our room be clean before 930am and guess what it was, so we can’t complain about housekeeping. Daily in room continental breakfast available, upon request delivered at the time you request. We used this service several times to enjoy the view of the garden and ocean from our balcony.
Beach and Pool- We spent most of our time on the beach… we always were able to find great seats, love the new towel policy, NO TOWEL, NO PROBLEM MON, HERE’S ANOTHER ONE, just remember to place your wet towels in the towel bin at the end of the day. The ocean is crystal clear and the beach is well maintained. The RED FLAG service is great, no drink raise your red flag and someone will get you one. Service at the swim up pool bar was fast and fun, shout out to Franklin, Orelle and Denise; keep up the good work. The pool looks and feels great, great place to hang out and make new friends. Almost forgot chilled face towel offered on the beach.
Activities- Something for everyone! If you can’t find something to do, then shame on you ;). Top 10 things to do, 1) Catamaran at sunset 2) Snorkeling 3) Sailing a HobbyCat 4) Waterskiing 5) Paddle Boarding 6) Volleyball (beach and pool) 7) learn to scuba dive for free 8) Glass bottom boat 9) nightly Showtime entertainment (love the Sliver Birds steel drum band!) 10) Ok, I admit there’s more to enjoy but I can’t think of them. All of the above activities are offered at no extra charge. Rented a Wave Runner one day and saw more places on Negril.
Bar- drinks are great, not watered down and will give you premium liquor upon request. Three Bars opened during day and night, never waited more than 2 minutes to get a drink. You have to try a BOB MARLEY, also the Miami Vice, Hurricane, Big bamboo, No Problem, Somethin Somethin and Red Stripe. That should get you through your first hour, just kidding. A little side note, it’s impossible to drink all the liquor at the bar, so drink responsibly.
Food- last but not least the food… it was great. A total of 4 restaurants to choose from, only one of which you have to make reservations for, Otaheite, collared shirt and pants required. Cassave Terrace is the main dining area. It offers a buffet I think on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday; the rest of the nights are five course meals, a la carte. Cassave Terrace offers a buffet for breakfast and lunch. The other restaurants are a la carte, no beachwear for dinner at any dining facility, shirt with sleeves, nice shorts or pants. Take your pick, I promise you will not be disappointed by any of the restaurants. Heliconia Grill offers lunch and dinner and is also your late night dinning option until 5am.
Staff- Outstanding, engaging, friendly; Shawna, Kiev, Okeno, Ruthann, Orelle, Denise and Franklin were amazing. Can’t tell you how much fun we had talking and hanging out with the staff. It really added to the overall experience and you could tell that they enjoyed it too.
