We have just returned from our wedding at Beaches Negril and it was absolutely amazing.
The wedding went off without a hitch. The entertainment, decorations, service, food, everything at it was more than phenomenal. Beaches made my wedding the most perfect day of my life and my husband and I would not have changed a thing.
The vacation was really really awesome. We knew we were coming during the rainy season, but there was only one day that we didn't hit the beach.
The beach is beautiful...white, soft sand, crystal clear water, and free snorkelling!!! Plenty of lounge chairs to go around and activities galore if you want to partake in them. We loved walking the beach! My sister got stung by a jellyfish at Ricks cafe, but you are in the ocean and sometimes these things happen. Benadryl is a must when travelling in Carribean countries. In saying this Ricks cafe is a really cool place. The diving is amazing...however, I don't recomment that anyone dive from the tallest spot that they let tourists dive from, one of my friends landed wrong and got huge black bruises all over her butt, and she was lucky, they have way worse injuries all the time.
The food was spectacular. I have read reviews where people complain, but I can't imagine what they are expecting. There is fresh fruit, amazing breads, chicken, fish, veggies, cheese, beef, pizza, anything you want, and its all delicious. I loved the Jamaican beef and chicken patties the best! The steak there was awesome. I live in Calgary, Alberta and it was equally as good as Alberta beef! The drinks are awesome!!! Pina coladas are thick and creamy, the Dirty Banana is fantastic, Red Stripe is a good beer! Nobody out of the 24 of us who went, including 2 children under 2 years old, got sick at all.
The entertainment is great! There is always something going on, you just need to read the daily activity guide.
The rooms were clean and spacious and nice.
Everything was awesome! If anyone has any questions feel free to email me and I will do my best to help you out.
Oh yes, YS Falls is super beautiful and fun. Rent your own bus privately and go there for the day, it will be half the price.

We found this resort to have great activities for the kids. The food options for the little kids (4 and under) were limited (not many options for fresh veggies, or kid friendly basics - small sandwiches etc), but otherwise okay. There was always pizza, hot dogs, ice cream etc. which they were happy to consume. Accomodation good. Overall a fun stay.

Beaches Negril is a very nice resort....in my opinion just the perfect size (around 200 rooms) The beach is beautiful and the water is crystal clear with a sandy bottom.
Plenty to do on the beach. The kids had a blast doing all of the water sports, playing at the water park, in the X Box game room, ping pong, pool, etc..... the list goes on. There is so much to do or you can sit under a hut and relax like I did!!!

The grounds were beautiful. The rooms were nice. The Jamaican people are so friendly and nice to talk to. I really enjoyed Jamaica and hope to go back.

The food was fair. Breakfast and lunch at the buffets always good. Lunch options also include pizza/pasta station, beach grill or sit down which serves sandwhiches etc...decent. Dinner at Kimonos was very good. We also ate at the Seville one night on family night and enjoyed this too. We visited Sandy Bay to try the Med Restaurant and liked it. Buffet for dinner was just so-so.

The layout of this resort is very well done. Nothing is "too far away" My children are 11 and 13. The way this property is laid out I felt completely comfortable letting them go off on their own.They met so many kids as well, they were always hanging out with their new friends.

The entertainment in the evenings was decent. We were usually tired from all of the activities that we didn't stay up too late!

This is a great family resort on a beautiful beach with a ton to do. I highly recommend this resort for a great family get away!

this was our first family trip taken ever, and Beaches Negril was the perfect place. A Total family driven place, the food, the atmosphere, the people. Make sure you go in the non rainy season so you can really enjoy the beaches. The water was crystal clear, and 85 degrees. Very nice and totally accomedating employees.
when we arrived we were shuffled away to the concierge services, which I totaly recommend for the $100.00 difference. Drinks, A/C room, bell boy service, it was great. All the alcohol, food, soda, ice cream you can eat.
The food, just remember, its designed for kids, so dont expect lobster, they do have steak, and its good steak every night, buffet eating with lots of choices.
The kids camp was gret, the women were sooo nice, lots of stuff for them to do and play with, elmo, and friends.
take advantage of all of the free snorkling, scuba, water sports you can, you have to get in on the reservations early though, thats where the concierge comes in.
the rooms were nice, not over the top luxury, but nice. we had a 1 bedroom suite, and it has a living room and a seperate bedroom. both had its own deck with a view of the ocean, lots of trees, so some obsructions, and all of the rooms are like this.
MAKE SURE YOU TAKE LOTS OF BUG SPRAY
the gift shop was super expensive and they have their own photographers that take your photos, then at the end of your stay, you can opt for a package purchase which range from $125.00 for 20 pictures to $320.00 for unlimited CD, so take your own camera. If your adventurous, walk off site down the beach, and purchase stuff from the other gift shops for waaaaaay les money, you just have to put up with the locals trying to sell you jewlery, and other illegal stuff.
I could never of asked for a more perfect vacation

The resort was exactly as described and there were no hidden suprises.The water was blue,the sand was white and the weather was perfect.

What else do you need!

The staff was very helpful and went out of there way to help you with anything that was needed.

A few of the staff that did an incredible job were Alex at the Seville, Nikki at the Piazza and Courtney the concierge.

We have already spoke of another trip here in a year and possibly one to Beaches in Turks and Caicos.

Enjoy!

Excellent people, delicious food, clean, safe.....unbelievable experience. I have four kids ranging in ages 3-14 and they all loved it. The kids loved the staff and all the activities. The nightly show were fantastic, the entertainers are amazing. In ten days I never heard once "I'm bored"! Anyone that has kids knows that is priceless.
The only thing they need to work on is when you are checking in, it can take some time, and after all that travel, you just want to go to the beach, so they need faster check in. When you are departing the resort, it is a little un-organized getting people on the busses, I think they could improve there as well. Besides check in, and departure, the place is fabulous, and my kids can't wait to go back next year and see all the staff again. They truly make it a fun expierience.
