We arrived in Jamaica on October 4th, 2007 (Thurs) and after a couple hour drive from Montego Bay to Negril, we arrived at Beaches Negril. Immediately, we experienced a warm welcome from Courtney Reid of Beaches. From the very start, Courtney took us under his care and made our 4 day stay at Beaches PERFECT (thank you so much Courtney!!!).
We had our wedding scheduled for that Sunday and met with Andrea (our wedding coordinator) on Friday Oct 5th. Andrea already had everything in order and took all of our worries we brought with us from the States away immediately . We had 13 guests come down and the majority stayed at other Sandal properties, but everyone commented on how great Beaches was.
Our kids (4 year boy and 6 year girl) loved every minute of their stay. The Sesame Street parade on Thursday, the Lazy River, the swim up bars in the pools where they could order their own fruity drinks, the Kids Camp, the lovely beach and clear ocean water, the Character Breakfast, and the amazing staff that made all of us feel like we were in paradise.
We would like to send a special thanks to Courtney Reid, Andrea
(wedding coordinator), Iesha (sales coordinator), Ralston (grounds keeper), Luther (bell man), Sherilynn (Mill Restaurant), Edgar (Mill Restaurant), and Donna (Last Chance Saloon) for going above and beyond in every aspect of GREAT SERVICE.
Our wedding went perfectly only because Andrea's coordination. We had rain during our alloted time and Andrea pushed our time slot back several hours to provide us with a perfect wedding.The photography and video team were the greatest! A special thanks to Reverend Campbell for making our ceremony a truely memorable moment.
The resort is very well kept, but what truely makes Beaches a paradise is the staff. Everyone was extremely friendly and you could tell it was genuine and not a painted on smile. Also, the resort was very accessible. I have a form of Muscular Dystrophy, SMA Type 3, and use a motorized wheelchair. I was able to access almost every area of the resort and if I couldn't access an area, the staff was more than willing to help. They carried me up 2 flights of stairs to the Seville restaurant for the Character Breakfast, helped pick me up out of my lounge chair when I was sun bathing, etc. Also, I would like to thank Ken of Ken's wheelchair service for the incredible service of transporting my family to and from Montego Bay and Negril.
My advice would be get get an incredible travel agent, Hayley Whorrall from Beach Bum Vacations, and once you have your trip planned, go to Jamaica without any expectations. Let the Jamaican people welcome you into their country and whisk you away to Beaches where the staff will show you what living in paradise is all about. All that is required from you is a smiling face and a respectful attitude towards the beautiful Jamaican people.
THANK YOU BEACHES STAFF,
M. Shane Hollen, Amy Hollen, Corrinna, and Jayden
