Sandals Negril: Exotic, Chic, Laid-back

The first resort I visited on my recent trip to Jamaica was Sandals Negril Beach Resort. Jamaica’s hippest resort is located on Jamaica’s famous 7-mile beach, on the western coast of the island nation. It’s a little odd to be traveling single, staying at a resort made for romance, but I have to say the staff couldn’t have been nicer. How they remembered my name – virtually all of them, after one evening – is beyond me, but it sure made me feel welcome.

Whether your room or suite faces the beach or gardens, the ocean is never far; the 226 rooms and suites at this resort sprawl the third of a mile length of beach this resort occupies. Standard rooms offer all the resort amenities; the list is long. All Club level rooms come with in-room minibar refreshed daily in addition to the unlimited  beverages offered throughout the resort; as well as Concierge services and special Club level activities. At this resort, ALL Club level rooms have views of the ocean! For the ultimate in luxury, Butler Suites offer luxury, privacy, and the ultimate in pampering: your own Butler, who will take care of your every wish!

My accommodation at this hotel was a Paradise Honeymoon Beachfront Grande Luxe Club Level Room.  Here’s a video slideshow I made, showing you my room (before I settled in and messed it up!)

 

Sandals Negril has 7 Global Gourmet restaurant options, from casual beachfront dining on a first-come-first-served basis,  to more dressy options with reservations required. All serve a-la-carte, rather than the buffet service than many all-inclusives offer, although extensive buffets are available at breakfast and lunch. There are several entertainment offerings each evening, or you can choose a quiet romantic evening. The swim up bar offers lively activity during the day, though this isn’t a party-hearty resort; it offers a good balance of fun and relaxation. Like every Sandals resort, there are so many activities to choose from during the day, there’s no way to get bored. When Sandals says it’s All-Inclusive, it’s not an exaggeration. Even motorized water-sports like Snorkeling, Water-Skiing, and Scuba Diving are Included. Tips are not only unnecessary, Sandals employees are not allowed to accept them. And the guests were as welcoming to us single folks as the staff was! Here’s another video I made, this one’s about the resort and a few of the activities I participated in.
