We just returned from 5 day at the resort and my kids had the best time of their life. (Their words not mine). Staff is so friendly which is what Jamaica is all about. All of the restaurants that we tried were very good, especially Arizona's and Stew Fish. Staff really treated our kids great and greated them by name. Special thanks you's to Stacy Ann, Gregory and Oshane at Arizona's and Oneil at Stew Fish. You made us feel at home and the kids are alreayd clamoring to go back.
We did no and use the kids camps but they had a lot to do every day and the kids that were part of them seemed to have a great time. We did make extensive use of the facilities including the Spa, watersports, and the ice cream machine. My oldest son (15) loved hanging out in Trench Town and Club Liquid. Scratch DJ was also a big highlight for him. Overall a great place.
My only complaint has nothing to do with Beaches or the Staff, it is the rude guest who think that just because they are on vacation that they can trash things, or steal things such as the ping pong paddles, and balls. We have already booked a return trip and can't wait to go back

Room Tip: We were in the 200 building and it was quiet back there.

We just returned from Beaches Negril, making this the 4th time to this resort! We love it there! We have 2 children (17 and 12) and the size and activities at this resort are perfect for our family. It is so fun to arrive at the resort and re-unite with a lot of the same staff as the years past. Courtney, Novia and Dorrette are so sweet welcoming us with hugs and Dorrette commenting on how are girls have grown (remembering them years ago in kids camp.) The scuba diving is amazing with an awesome big dive boat. The dive staff is very helpful with Craig and Samuel being extra amazing. Fun was had by all with Oneil at the Stewfish beach bar! The watersport guys made the beach extra exciting, especially Alton and Tyron! Our daughter had her senior pictures taken by the amazing Antwayne! He was so patient and took unbelievable pictures that will be keepsakes forever!! The girls met so many teenagers, thanks to the entergetic Fasha and Nicholas with the teen club. They know how to unite kids and make freindships! When we were leaving, they arranged for the kids to meet us at the front desk to give hugs and say good bye. Fasha even gave our girls a special gift! Truly amazing! The food at the resort keeps getting better each year, it is delicious with a lot of variety! We were also impressed with how the managers are accessible and truly interested in the guest's comfort. Kendra, with the Sandals Foundation, has been so helpful giving to the locals and community. We have had the privilage of working with her for 3 years. We are already counting the days until next year when we will be back to see our friends at Beaches Negril!

Kids- This is a great resort for families. We have four children ages 15, 13, 11 and 7. Our kids are not into "Kids Club's" so we cannot comment on that as they did not attend. If we wanted a vacation free of our kids we would leave them at home. We were on vacation as a family so we played as a family. Our kids enjoyed the X-Box room and mini golf. Our girls 11 and 7 participated in the crafts at an addiitonal charge. SIMONE at the craft station was wonderful. (Worth the money, especially the scrap booking...only $22.00) I would not recomend this resort for Couples. This is a FAMILY resort and if you do not have kids you may not appreciate it. Go to Sandles if you are taking a kid free retreat.

Food - The food is very good as far as all-inclusives are concerned. We enjoyed the Italian and Japanese resturants. We also ate dinner a couple of times at Arizona's which is good too. The buffet is a buffet and we avoid those other than breakfast. The pool side grill is very good and open until 3am. There is food available 24/7 and the staff are very friendly. Our daughters enjoyed several ice cream cones per day! Beaches takes extra care to have plenty off food and snacks around. You will not go hungary and may even arrive home heavier.

Beaches - The beach is off the hook. One of the best in the world. There are plenty of beach chairs so no worries finding that perfect locaiton. (you can move chairs around too) Towels are an issue. For a 5 star resort this was the only minor blip. Most of the fresh towels stands are empty all day. There are several towel stands throughout the resort. After a couple of days you may know where to look. In any event this is a matter that Beaches needs to address. Not having towels available at the beach during daylight hours is unacceptable. With that said we managed to find fresh towels daily, it simply took some creativity and patience. The local vendors selling "Jetski's and Parasailing" are somewhat annoying. Best advice is to tell them "NO" on day one and then they leave you alone. They are not allowed to approach you and the hotel security is on them immediatlely if they do chat you up. This is really a non-issue as the resort does an amazing job of controlling these guys. If you can afford the 125.00 rent a cabana for the day. It is off the charts good. The best 125.00 we ever spent! DAMIEN was our Cabana boy and he did a very good job. Props to him!

Rooms- The rooms are excellent. We were in Santa Cruz Building. This was a very good area to be. The rooms are the cleanest we have ever stayed in. The housecleaners are friendly and attentive. The rooms are small but very good. We rented three rooms with two connecting. We had two kids in each room and a room for oursleves. I would spend the extra money for additional rooms versus jamming in with teenagers. We had conceirge room category. This is a very good service. Any thing we needed they looked after. Our in room bar was well stocked and huge thanks to RICARDO who looked after our special requirement of Coke Zero and Water!

Water Sports - There is tons to do. It is all included which is nice. Go the first day so you undertand the process. It is really quite easy to get involved and rent equipment. It is very handy having all this available at no extra fee.

TIPS - Beaches does not allow tipping. This was very strange for us to get used to. You have all these staff going out of their way to please you and instinctively you want to tip. They will not accpet a tip. You never need any money on this resort. It was fabulous, but at times you feel guilty, but we loved it! (FYI- You need to tip the transport guy that takes you to and from the airport.)

Store - Our boys suit case was lost by SUNWING Air. We went to the Beaches gift shop to buy cloths. They did not have much that fits a 13 year old. This was not ideal and I think the store could have a wider selection of swim trunks. If you have your luggage this is not an issue. The problem is not much in Negril so if you lose your luggage and you are relying on the resort store to get you through. Otherwise the store has everything you require.

In summary, we would go back for sure. We did notice that there were some complainers. I am not sure what would actually please these people?? We were told that most complaints and poor reviews would be from American's and oddly enough this was the case. If you came as a couple to this family resort I would get that, but if you like families this resort has nothing to complain about! Respect Mon!

A group of 18 (9 couples) spent a week at this resort and had the time of our lives! The place was not only beautiful and had many wonderful ammenities but the staff there made it that much more fun. We didn't experience any staff that weren't great, but a few were EXCEPTIONAL, especially Lorenzo C; Nordell; Opal; Terrance and OShayne. Kudos to those staff members because they made this very memorable and a destination that we hope to return to VERY soon!

Very clean, exceptional food and drink and the hospitality and care of the staff is beyond anything we've experieinced.

Room Tip: Honestly, we didn't spend a lot of time in the room, too much to do! I find it hard to believe there are any that are poor.

Just returned from our trip with our son and his family to Beaches Negril and as usual it was another great trip! This was our fourth stay at a Beaches resort, having stayed twice at Beaches Turks & Caicos and once at Boscobel. We enjoyed this one the most mainly because the resort was a bit smaller. Everything was in close proximity to the beach which meant if we wanted to use any of the facilities, water park or sports or go back to our rooms we didn't have to walk far. As has been our experience at all our stays in Beaches or Sandals, the staff was excellent and most accomodating. I would highly recommend Beaches for families or Sandals for couple to anyone looking for a most enjoyable, relaxing vactaion. Since my wife and I have been frequent guest of Sandals we earned our free week and plan on returning next year to Jamaica for probably a 10 day stay at Sandals.

Room Tip: I would recommend for couples traveling to this resort, reserve a room with a king size bed. I made the mistake of getting a room with two doubles and used only one bed wasting space in the room. We'd have had addtional space in the room with one bed.
