We just returned from Beaches Negril which we visited as part of a wedding group. We were disappointed--I really held Sandals resorts to a higher standard. While we thought the food was a little better than the average all inclusive, we did not think the hotel was very clean. The room we were in was not well maintained and the water was turned off completely on more than one occasion during our stay. The stopper in our sink was broken and we called asking them to please repair it so we could soak swimming suits, etc during our stay. They simply never showed up after two requests. We did do the candlelight dinner on the beach for our 10th anniversary--that was wonderful. I'll warn you though that I have about 50 bites on me--what I presume are sand fleas, so if there is any kind of repellent for those--bring it with you! I am hoping it was from the beach and not from anything in our room. The resort could have been much cleaner, including the pools. The sun is really potent, so plan on a little higher SPF than you would wear on the average. The gift shop is priced higher than the airport, so save your shopping for the duty free shops if you have the time. We also took a charter fishing cruise. The boat was about as basic as you can get--no comfort at all and $120 per person booked through the hotel--but very nice crew and we did catch several fish and almost a blue marlin! If you are looking for a luxurious place, this is not it. I did not price shop because we were going for a wedding. I would only go back here if not given a choice such as in the off chance other friends get married here. Final complaint--no bottled water is included at all with the price. You have to buy it in the gift shop. It is not available at the fitness center or the spa either. The tap water in the room is not cold, so we chased around ice water the entire trip. No refrigerator or microwaves or ice buckets or ice machines. No clotheslines in the room to hang suits. Pretty basic.
