We just returned from beaches. We stayed in a villa in the Caribbean village, it was kind of old but with the butler services of Trisha and Tony they made our trip memorable. Those two did so much for us and more. In fact we are going back next year at the new Key West. The Kitty Kat cruise was amazing! Seen beautiful island went snorkeling and had a great party on the 65' boat. All staff was very friendly and caring. If you get your hair done on the beach look for Marie she does it best! The food was delicious especially at kimono and Mario's. again a big thanks to Trisha and Tony they got our party in all the great restaurants and always had wonderful snacks waiting for us at night. We miss you all already, can't wait to go back. The beach is extraordinary and the water is turquoise just like the books. Best place I've visited so far.

Six of us, spanning three generations, had a great time at Beaches. One of us, a seven-year-old boy, has a food allergy. We were able to get safe food for him at the various restaurants and snack bars, albeit often with a delay due to an apparent disconnect between the Culinary Concierge and the individual chefs. Overall, the food was excellent. Unlimited premium liquors were available. The house wine was adequate, with a better selection available at additional cost.. WiFi in our room, at $43 for the week, was fast and reliable. Sailing kayaking were included, with no wait. Rough sea conditions prevented us from using the water tricycles. The staff was very friendly. The beach was rather narrow and crowded, with the usual problem of lounge chairs reserved early by guests who only used them for part of the day. The multiple pools and saunas, including swim-up bars for adults and kids, were a pleasure. We sometimes had to wait for fresh towels to be put out.
This resort is great for families, especially if the kids are young. There’s some kind of Sesame Street activity going on every day, plus a camp and waterpark with slides and other fun stuff. There is also activities for teens, including a common X-box room and X-box machines in the guestrooms.
The beach party should not be missed. From dancing with Big Bird and his friends to beer-drinking contests, we all had a blast.
Our only complaint was the cumbersome, repetitive check-in process. All information was provided by phone when the reservations were made. We were then directed, once the trip was paid, to complete on line check-in. This was done within the recommended time-frame. When we arrived at the resort, tired and in need of a swim and drink, we again were asked the same information already provided twice before including passport information and basic info. We also had to wait one day to get the connected rooms we had been promised. All of this had nothing to do with our special food needs.
Overall, it was a great experience.

We just returned from our second trip to Beaches (2/23/13 to 3/2/13), and booked the 3rd trip before we left. Traveled with two kids (10 and 12). The grounds are beautiful. The food and service range from pretty good to excellent. The two adults-only restaurants are the best for dinner, and Arizona's is amazing for lunch. My kids love the Japanese restaurant - the chefs really make a show of it, and my kids are still talking about our chef, Cookie. Only complaint is that the French adult-only restaurant (Le Petit Chateau) is next to the stage, so you have to sit inside for dinner, unless you can stand hearing Elmo and small children sing while you eat. On Friday nights they have a beach party BBQ, and it is impressive (and loud).
We had connecting rooms in the Caribbean Village, which gave us two bathrooms (Italian Village suites only have 1 bathroom), and we were close to everything. The Caribbean Village rooms were all updated in Feb. 2012, and they're pretty nice (and certainly nice enough when you have two kids throwing wet towels and bathing suits around). There's tons of stuff to do, and all of the pools are beautiful and warm (Italian pool is almost too warm). This place is hard to beat for a family vacation, but due to the sheer number of children, I don't think it would be that great for couples.

From diving to snorkeling, from the sushi bar to the petit chateau, from the kids camp to the water park...activities, food, drinks, beach are just fabulous there. Staff is extremely nice, a mini paradise for families!

We go to the beaches resort for the past 2 years. Sandals Halcyon the year before. No matter which one you go to, you not only have the best time of your life, you build relationships with the staff. My son constantly communicates with the friends he's made there. My wife and I join in with him talking to them. We look forward to each year and build more friends with every trip. You can't put a price on the experience you receive from any trip to either a Beaches resort of a Sandals resort. Each year we try to add another day to the length of our trip. Between the service and food and activities. There's just not enough time to do it all in just a week. Anybody that says they had a bad time must be either too spoiled or just looking to get something for free by complaining. They all go out of their way to see you have the best time of your life. If I told you all the people's names that made our trips a success, it'd be time to get on the plane and go again. Everybody that works there even down to the gardeners were just completely outstandingly nice. Thanks for a great trip Beaches and Sandals! See you next year! The Springers from Vanderbilt Pa.
