My wife Tina and I stayed at the Grand Pineapple 15th to 29th November 2013 and I can honestly say its the best holiday I have ever had! We travelled with Kuoni, whose service was first rate, providing us with a private transfer from the airport to the hotel in a modern air conditioned SUV. The Kuoni Rep on site - Carole, was an absolute star and totally helpful and friendly.
We arrived early evening to a welcoming cocktail from the duty Manager Kerry-Anne, bright, cheerful and friendly and so helpful.
The resort itself is in 2 parts - the garden side and the beach side, separated by the main road. Both sides are equally beautiful and if you are not bothered by a 2 minute walk to the bar, restaurant and beach, then you will be perfectly happy wherever. The accomodation is in the main composed of colourfully painted 'cottages' each of which has 4 lots of accomodation. These are really lovely and, set in the lush tropical gardens, look fantastic. they are clean and well appointed and each has its own balcony. Less popular are the manor rooms, which although just as clean and well appointed, dont have a balcony .
There is one bar and restaurant at the resort, but how many do you need? The food is plentiful, well cooked and delicious and there is always plenty of variety, with many themed nights throughout the week.
The beach is beautiful and literally two steps from the bar, clean white sand, which is maintained by the staff and there are plenty of sunbeds and complimentary beach towels each day too.
Negril is, no doubt, a beautiful resort but for me what makes the Grand Pineapple stand out is the people, I cannot stress too much how fantastic the staff are, always cheerful, helpful and friendly, they literally cant do enough for you and they genuinely appear to want to make your holiday the best it can be. So.... to Kerry-Anne, Carole, Rohan, Omar, Christopher, Wainsworthy, Sherita, David, Bethune, Angela, Tanya and last , but not least the marvellous Marvette - thankyou all for a fantastic holiday and we will meet again. There are many more staff I dont know by name , but thanks to you all as well, you all shine ! Eddie and Tina.
