This will be my families sixth year attending Beaches Negril and we could be more excited. There are so many things that keep wanting us to come back to this great resort year after year. A few of those things are...

Restaurants: for breakfast one of are favorites is The Mill which has a variety of different foods to pick from for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. The Stew fish is another great options for Breakfast and Dinner with amazing seafood at night. The BBQ park is my personal favorite because it is so easy to just go and grab some food whenever and the quality of the food is delicious. Kimonos is like no other because it has great food cooked right in front of your eyes with very enthusiastic chefs that even interact with you throughout your dinner. last year was a first time at the Mariachi and it was simply delicious, we loved the nacho bar (but wish it was open longer than the one hour window it is open for). Dino's is one my favorites to stop at and get awesome pizza, and my personal favorite is the jerk pizza. While on vacation every night i would stop at get a nutella great that was amazing. the Venetian offers a variety of different italian cuisine. This year I would also like to try Soy which I did not get a chance to try last year. Yesterday I heard that Negril opened a brand new frozen yogurt restaurant named Yoyo's and I couldn't be more thrilled, and when I get to Negril I will be having a lot of frozen yogurt. So, overall I think the food at Negril is amazing and i think the variety of options for people that are very picky.

Land and Water Sports: The water sports at Negril are pack with tons of fun fro families. My personal favorite is the paddle board and it is very simple to do. One thing I would recommend for people that would like to do water sports I would do them in the morning because it is not that windy. here are a variety of different water sports and land sports to do at Negril and the employees make it very easy to do the things you would like to do.

Entertainment/Activities: The entertainment at Negril is awesome. Every night there is different show and it is really fun for all families to do and watch. There is tons of activities you can participate in where you can find in the newspaper that you can get everyday to see what is happening that day. The Xbox Room is something that is used very much In Negril with tons of kids having fun throughout the day.

Miscellaneous: The beach at Negril is excellent and the water is beautiful for playing in or just chilling in. the employees that work here make you fell right at home in every aspect and very friendly which makes this trip ten times better and makes us keep on coming back for years.If you are thinking about to Negril I would recommend it over anything else because it takes so much stress off my family and I and it is a great all inclusive resort in the Caribbean. I do have one question: HAs the resort been more crowded lately due to the hurricane in Turk and Caicos?

Room Tip: Try to get a room closest to where you will be spending most of your day.

Really don't want to leave a bad review....we enjoyed our stay. I think the points below will add value to someone:

1 - Most of the reviews are very accurate...the good ones and even the not so good ones are very true. Especially when it comes to the staff.....some are very very nice and a few are rude....and most are somewhere in the middle.

2 - When it comes to food, the specialty restaurants were all very good....the exception is the buffet. It was awful just about all the time....I think I figured out that with the resort being very light on guests, when they 1st cook the food and put it out, it is ok. If you go an hour later or 2 hours later...it is the same food, all dried out and unappetizing. I suspect that during busy times, the food cycles enough where it is fresh and more appetizing throughout the meal.

3 - I am a details guy, I notice the small things like lack of maintenance, chipped paint, sloppy renovations and the like. This resort seems to be in the middle of a renovation cycle as there is no active work, some areas are really nice (small pool and surrounding) and others are in need of rehab (big pool and surrounding). Our room looked like work had been done recently, but the work was very sloppy.

4 - We traveled with an older teen - there were not many people there to begin with and hardly any near his age. The resort is mostly geared toward small kids and their parents that want to be drunk most of the day....not a knock, just reality.....

5 - I think the cost was way too high for the value given. Having stayed at "high end" all inclusive's AND "lower end" all inclusive's...this place falls somewhere in the middle. Unfortunately not anywhere near the $200 per person per night (without airfare) that was paid. I would have gladly paid more for a more luxury experience. With the cost so high and the area wages so low, I was expecting more from the property upkeep and the offerings in general. For this reason alone, I would not return.

In summary - the trip was good...but priced too high. If you have small kids and like to get drunk while someone else tends to your kids....this is the place for you! If you are not a big drinker (like us)...you may see low value for your money spent. While I will not return here...I may try a Sandals property in the future.

Room Tip: If you choose a cheap room - it will face the road and you will hear cars at night. But not sure if...

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at Beaches Negril. It appears that some aspects of your trip were enjoyable however we are disappointed to hear about the shortcomings during your stay and I regret that you were not satisfied with the performance level from all of our employees. Please do know we will be investigating your concerns further as we have a firm commitment to our guests to make our resort more efficient.

Regarding your concerns about the food and dining options at the buffet, it is surprising to note that some of the food served was not to your expectations as this aspect of our operation is usually considered exceptional and very often received compliments from our guests. We are therefore sorry if you were not similarly impressed.

Regarding your comments of the maintenance issues experienced during your stay, I regret that your review is not more reflective of our dedication to the upkeep and maintenance of our resort and we are terribly sorry. Even though our staff performs a number of quality control checks, there are times when items may become damaged without our knowledge. When incidents are reported, we respond immediately to repair any damaged items as quickly as possible to avoid any further inconveniences during your stay.

We want to make sure future guests do not have similar feedback and will take action by notifying the appropriate departments of your remarks - including our Executive Management Team. We regret if we were unable to meet your expectations during your stay and hope we gain the opportunity of serving you in the future.

My family visited Beaches Negril for a much needed getaway this past week. This has been our first time to Jamaica, and I must say the country and the people are just beautiful. From the moment of our arrival in the airport, from the second we arrived at the resort, the staff has been extremely attentive to us & our every need. Yesterday it rained a bit & I was at the time a little disappointed, but we met Odane, who is here to entertain & that he did! He jumped in the pool w/his clothes on, in the rain, & just called it some liquid sunshine. He had everyone laughing & all the kids within an hour in a race & trying out for a talent show. If you are looking for a family vacation to really relax, yet make bonds with w/great people and experience a beautiful country & resort, book Beaches Negril. It will be one of the best times you will ever have had!!
