“Just perfect”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Not quite seven mile, and no where near like varadero Cuba ( which is IMO the best beach ever ),but still a beautiful stretch of sea and sand without the constant stream of vendors trying to sell you stuff you don't really want or need, not that there isn't any just not as many as 7 mile...best time to walk the bay is early morning walk that breakfast off....take a stroll to the far end near the club hotel riu there is a fish sanctuary there it's amazing.

“Garry's Respect Tours”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We had booked another company to take us from Bloody Bay to the airport but they wanted to take us 4 1/2 ours before our flight left....Garry was very obliging and we were able to sleep in a little more and have breakfast at our hotel Sunset at the Palms. Garry was very polite and fun and showed us things along the way we hadn't known about (an old fort near Lucea, the bell tower story, etc), and we will check these things out on another trip now. Thanks, Garry, you made the trip home that much easier! Next trip we'll book Respect Tours for a mountain road trip!

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Beautiful, clear water, barely any waves and perfect for kids to play in. Stayed at the Riu Negril at the far right of the Bay, but walked the whole bay a few times and found the part in front of the Riu Palace to be better. Fish sanctuary at the Riu Negril, spotted a stingray and starfish, also spotted a stingray in the middle of the bay while we were walking it one day. You will find lots of vendors along the beach, but if you are not interested a "no thank you" will do. The beach is not crowded as there are not as many hotels as on Long Bay, and the beach is just as good here (this is officially part of the 7 Mile Beach (it's about 2 miles long and Long Bay is the remaining 5 miles). Amazing sunsets from the middle to left side of bay (Riu Negril sunset view is blocked by the curved end of bay).
