We anxiously left Beaches Negril two days early due to the impending wrath of hurricane Ivan. The Beaches staff were unbelievably cooperative, calm, and efficient as many of us made plans to leave early. And, despite it not being part of their hurricane guarantee, we have been given the opportunity to return and stay free of charge for any unused nights. Those who opted to stay (or just couldn't leave), were calmly instructed on the resorts plans and procedures for securing the safety of everyone. The resort manager (who obviously understood that everyone was looking to him for answers and strength) treated everyone's questions with patience and professionalism. I, for one, wouldn't have been handle a stream of seemingly irrational questions quite so eloquently. Our prayers go out to everyone one who weathered the storm.
The stay itself was quite nice. My children had to be pulled away from the "kids kamp", the Seville formal restaurant was delicious, and the watersports were more than enough to keep us busy. Our positive experiences with the staff are too numerous to elaborate on in this forum.
Very few downsides like the 1.5 hour ride (each way) from Montego Bay, the evening entertainment was so-so, and I could have used a better cup of coffee, but the positives sure out weigh the negatives.
