we stayed there from 1/16/14-1/21/14 and had a great time. the resort is centrally located on 7 mile beach, next door to alfreds bar. we really enjoyed it. our room was clean, plenty of hot water, good AC. The only negative I can say about the room was that the mattresses were extremely hard. but they were replacing the mattresses in some of the rooms so hopefully all rooms will get a better mattress. the food was good with lots of options. the drinks were plentiful and cold. the grand pineapple probably has one of the best beach areas in this section of Negril. lots of chairs, space, shade or sun.
this area of Negril has a lot of cheap to mid range resorts. further north are the big resorts which are away from the everyday population. if you want to be isolated then these may be for you.
there are a lot of places to eat near the resort if you want to venture out to eat local food. right across the street is a jerk chicken stand which is excellent. as in many beaches in the Caribbean you have the beach 'vendors'. there are a lot of people walking on the beach trying to sell you anything. they can be annoying but the resort has 24 hour guards to keep them away. if you just politely tell them no thank you they will leave you alone.
room tip. stay on the beach side of the highway. we never went across the highway to look at the other side but it is a long walk from the beach. we could hear music at night from alfreds but with the ac running it did not keep us from sleeping.
