“excellent resort”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

This was are second trip to Beaches, Negril. It's not often we return to the same resort, however Beaches Negril has everything we were looking for; amazing staff, cleanliness, watersports including wakeboarding and waterskiing which is hard to find in an all-inclusive resort. The weather was perfect and the beach is beautiful. We always found chairs on the beach without having to get up extra early as we do at every other resort.

I really enjoyed the Paris stop coffee shop, where I was able to have cappuccinos in the morning and Spanish coffees in the afternoon. Stacey and the other girls always made a perfect cappuccino.

My only complaint is the selection at the buffet, could be more healthier choices, but everything we tried was good.

This is definitely an excellent choice for families regardless of age.

Thank you to all the staff for making our trip so enjoyable, the service is A1 which is so hard to find, Jodian whom served my family drinks all day with a smile, Mickedo at Kimonos was superb, Shaneka, kenton and Oshane thanks to you, my son had an amazing time.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor which was fine for us but if your travelling with young kids you might wa...

We had such a nice time. My kids loved ordering drinks in the pool. We enjoyed the activities. Try to participate in some of them, my children ended up with cool souvenirs. The scuba diving lessons for kids was great! We like the ease access to everything. The food ranges from good to wonderful, but no complaints.

We love this resort! My husband and I, two teenage daughters and my mother in law spent an amazing week at Beaches Negril. The hospitality here is extraordinary! The beach is beautiful. The food was delicious. Make sure you dine at the Stew Fish, Chef Annmarie serves the best grilled Jamaican fish and Michelle will be there to greet you with a smile. Check out Chef Mallard at Kimonos, Chef Melissa at the Venetian with waiters Craig and Feron. Chef Glenn was helpful and The Mill has an excellent buffet. Winston has the best lunch at BBQ park and is always happy to see you.Our girls have celiac disease and need to eat a gluten free diet. All the chefs at the resort were fully aware of this allergy and prepared gluten free variations from the menu. Chef Conroy prepared special desserts for our girls and took good care of us all week. We love you Conroy! We even had gluten free pizza at Dino's.
Captain Rick's boat tours are fantastic! Lucien,Ceon and Lloyd and the waterfront crew provided endless waterskiing, sailing and snorkeling. Plenty of activities for our teens, including a cruise. The beach and pool bar staff were always courteous, Damien,Oshane,Ashley,Leggon and June. Even our housekeeping ladies were friendly, Angela and Patricia.
This is not a mega resort, we never waited in line and the staff goes out of their way to make sure you're enjoying your stay. The beach is clean and the water is spectacular! A great family vacation.

Room Tip: We fit four in our room. One king, a roll away and pull out sofa. It was tight but it worked for us...

The staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. Resort is clean and well manicured. The food is excellent as well. If i had to find a complaint, it would be that they put too much rum in the drinks for my taste.
Would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking to vacation in the caribbean. Pleanty of activities for the whole family to enjoy.

This review is a bit late, but as we are all getting so excited about our return to Beaches Negril next week, I wanted to write about our trip last Spring Break -March 2013.

We are a family of 5 traveling with two adults, and three children ages 18, 8 and 2. We considered MANY resort options before settling on Beaches Negril. It ended up being the best choice we could have made! There was something for everyone, hence the reason it was unanimous that we return again this year!

Our room was much better than I had expected! It was quite large and plenty of room for the 5 of us! The room was very clean, the fridge was stocked, nice linens and beds were all very comfortable! We stayed in the Savannah Block right next to the pool, water park and kids club. This was a very convenient location for us and we had no problems with noise. House keeping was always friendly and on point!

Activities: Something for everyone! Our 8 year old had a great time with his gang of new friends playing basketball in the pool all day and in the X-box garage all night. He enjoyed ordering all the kids special frozen drinks-said he died and went to heaven! My 2 year old (turned 3 while there) had a great time on all the Sesame Street experiences. The nannies in the kids club were nice. Only negative was the kids club was being renovated while we were there and when not our on SS experiences, the toddlers were confined to the infant room. The kids club was completed on our last day there and looks very nice. Our 18 year old had a fantastic time! She enjoyed all the water activities with us. Alton and Anthony at the water sports were awesome! They were always encouraging us to do all the activities. We sailed, snorkeled, rode the big banana, and did the water trikes. We also went para-sailing with an off property crew-be sure and negotiate this! We also got a GREAT massage on the beach from the ladies next door to the property!

We ate at all the restaurants. Our favorite was Stewfish for dinner on the beach and super yummy! All the restaurants are pretty good and if the food lacks, the staff makes up for it with their awesome service! The Jamaican Beach BBQ and show is not to be missed!!! SO GOOD! The BBQ shack was also great to grab a quick bite! Shout out to ONeil at the beach bar that always had a new yummy concoction for us to try!

And last but not least, we were won over by the amazing service we were given by our Concierge (for the life of me I can not remember her name, but will update this post upon my return next week)! I told her of my dilemma that the gift shop was out of diapers (NOTE:Bring what you need) and only had singles. After working her shift all day, she took it upon herself to drive downtown, buy me a pack of diapers and brought them back to the resort. This after she had worked all day, for not a king's ran$om mind you and was ready to be home with her family. That, my friends, is 5 star service! I would also like to offer this bit of advice, when arriving at the resort, please leave your state side quest for perfection at home and embrace the slow pace of the island culture. The staff want to make your vacation wonderful for you, however, do keep in mind that this is a small resort and if you become pompous and irrational, they will all know and concentrate their efforts else where! So relax and enjoy!

The Lee Family thanks you and looks forward to seeing you all next week!!

We stayed at Beaches Negril with our 5 year old daughter and 6 other family members/couples. We had 38 guests between Sandals and Beaches to attend our wedding that took place on Saturday, March 1st 2014. The experience was beyond amazing, it was magical. The staff at Beaches treated us with kindness and respect, we felt safe and were catered too beyond our expectations. Our daughter also had the time of her life. I cannot recommend this resort enough, it was the best vacation experience of our lives.
Our wedding planner Nakeesha was highly organized and went above and beyond for us on our special day. The servers, DJ and bartenders at our reception were an absolute joy. All staff at Beaches were highly competent and a pleasure to be around. We felt that we extended our family and friends by getting to know them. The activities included at this resort were amazing, we snorkeled, paddle boarded and went scuba diving. The food and restaurants were out of this world. We cannot wait to go back!
Another bonus was their photo shop. The staff there were helpful and caught all of our memories on camera, we left with a photo album of beautiful pictures documenting all of our amazing experiences.
Our rooms were clean and beautiful, they kept our fridge stocked with water, juice and pop. The beach on this resort has got to be one of the best is in the world.
Thank you to Beaches Resort and Spa for the trip of a lifetime. Our family and friends that attended our wedding said it was by far the best wedding and reception they had ever been to. This was all made possible by Nakeesha and her wedding staff. As a bride, I cannot begin to describe how amazing it felt to be relaxed and stress free on my wedding day.
Much love, Adam and Heather LaFave. XOXO

We stayed at beaches Negril with our 1 year old daughter. She loved all the attention! The girls at the kids sesame camp nursery were so awesome with her during the day when we dropped her off to do our own thing or have dinner alone.

We also used the nanny service a few times.

The resort provided us with a crib as well.

We were first in room 925 but quickly realized that because it is literally a tiny fence over from the couples swept away resort next door that this was not the room for us with the noise.

We were moved a few days later to room 424 which is excellent and faces the kids waterpark and ocean.

Food is excellent but breakfast could have more variety.

BBQ by the piazza pool is delicious as well as the steak at Arizona, also by the piazza pool. Venetian, mill, and kimonos all good food.

Check out the red lane spa, they gave me a sunburn treatment and we had two massages for couples. Ladies are all lovely.

Almost every staff member is friendly and helpful and energetic, especially to our daughter kayleigh! They loved her!

All in our first beaches experience was as perfect as our sandals experience.

Would definitely return and recommend!
