Is there anything better than sitting in Jamaica on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and simply relaxing? I spent a week in Jamaica visiting several resorts in order to better service my clients. What can I say, I love my job!! I was fortunate enough to stay at Sandals Negril. Despite the continued Sandals construction, this large resort had so many surprises and I left with a better understanding of why people return every year. Sandals Negril is located in Negril, Jamaica on the most famous 7 mile beach on the west coast of Jamiaca. It is an all adult- all inclusive property that has so much to offer. It is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the airport (Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay) and the ride is quiet enjoyable on the Sandals transportation that is complimentary with the room package. This is just the start to the “More Quality Inclusions” that Sandals offers.
Sandals Negril is the ultimate Beach Resort and Spa. It is set among the lush palms, the most beautiful powdery white sand, and the calm but charming Caribbean Sea, a wonderful destination for Scuba and Snorkel enthusiasts. Negril offers some of the best sunsets in the Caribbean as well as plenty of water sports to choose from. Sandals Negril is set on 12 acres of lush greenery and pristine white beachfront with 226 rooms and suites in 16 categories of rooms. Relax and enjoy luxurious accommodations, steps from the Jamaican beach, including some of the most unique suites in the world with butler service where you can swim-up to your private patio.

After all of the water sports and fun in the sun, you will most likely be starving. Sandals Negril does not disappoint. There are 7 dining options that will have you always full. The Barefoot By the Sea Restaurant is a wonderful Seafood Restaurant located on the Caribbean Shore. It is the only restaurant where you can walk up barefoot and dine. It is a truly remarkable experience. The Beach Bistro is another option where they offer beach grilling and Jamaican Specialties. Bella Napoli Pizzaria has some of the best wood fire pizzas in the Caribbean. It is so delicious and always a great afternoon snack. The Sundowner is an Authentic Jamaican Restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing and the restaurant has a really unique aspect. Ask the wait staff, “Why do you call it-the Sundowner?” They Bayside Restaurant is the breakfast and lunch buffet. There are two restaurants that do require reservations: 1) Cucina Romana the italian restaurant and 2) Kimonos restaurant which offers the Japanese Teppanyaki. All of the food was ridiculously yummy. All I did was eat the whole time! hehe!
Sandals Negril has five bars/cocktail lounges throughout the resort including the ever popular Swim Up Pool Bar, Piano and Sports Bar, Main Bar, Kimono’s Bar, and the Beach Bar. While I was there, I was treated to a tasty beverage at the Piano Bar while I sat and took in the scenery. Few resorts are located as close to the waterfront as this one and so to be able to sit back and relax and just enjoy it was a huge treat. The bright colors abound at this resort where you can admire not only the Caribbean waters, but beautiful flowers, plants, and of course, tropical drinks at every turn.
Every day is a new day at Sandals Negril. Their entertainment ranges from Reggae Fest to a Caribbean Night. No matter where you go on property, you’re destined to enjoy yourself. I would definitely recommend Sandals Negril for any couple looking for a romantic beach vacation where the beach will plan an integral part of your vacation. If you’re a water lover, this is the place for you. You can choose the ultimate in seclusion based on your accommodations or choose to meet and mingle with other guests. It’s up to you! Some people balk at the price for a Sandals’ vacation, but when you look at what’s included as well as the quality and value you receive, you’d have to agree that it’s well worth it.
Last but not least… Sandals Negril is the most perfect location to Tie the Knot or Re-Tie the Knot for that matter. It is such a stunning property and has some of the best sunsets. Many brides love to get married at sunset, which is the most romantic time of the day! Sandals Wedding Concierge/ Designers make the planning seamless and all you have to worry about is “I Do’s."
I cannot wait to help you plan the ultimate getaway, anniversary, or honeymoon. I look forward to hearing from you. Sandals Negril is great destination with so many options. Trust me... you need help with the room categories. So many! HeHe!
