I want to start off by saying that I am going to present my PERSONAL points of view based upon my own observations, likes and dislikes. I very much enjoyed each of the eight properties I toured – but for different reasons. I believe that each of them have positive attributes – but some have negative attributes as well. So here we go….
Sandals Negril is a beautiful property, and I would argue, after touring what felt like half the beaches on the island, that the Negril area has the nicest beaches – beautiful, azure waters and powdery sand! The Sandals Negril property feels more boutique like in its set up. It feels quaint, intimate and well laid out. The swim out rooms we absolutely my favorite and I also loved the Barefoot eating area! It really felt like a tropical paradise!
I can’t say there were any real NEGATIVES about this resort – it was a bit on the small side – which some people would consider a PLUS! It was small but still not too small. It was VERY well kept and the grounds, as with all of the properties I saw, were absolutely gorgeous! Lush, mature tropical gardens and plants really augment the natural beauty of the sea and the build beauty of the architecture.
As with all Sandals and Beaches properties, so many water sports are included in your Ultra-Inclusive pricing. Diving, sailing, kayaking and even tubing and water skiing in some locations. Look at these gorgeous sail boats and dive boats! Talk about a fabulous groups opportunity!
Finally, the Negril resort area is about 1.5 to 2 hours away from the Montego Bay Airport (MBJ) – this is a colorful and enjoyable ride around Jamaica’s coastline and the opportunity to see small towns and villages along the way is a fabulous way to learn a bit about a county and her people.
While the topography and waters of Jamaica look similar to other Caribbean islands, there is something special about Jamaica. Her people say they don’t have problems, but situations. They believe in their “One Love” moto and live life to the fullest!
I heard a number of time that if you visit Jamaica three times, you ARE Jamaican. Well, I have one more trip to earn my “ya, mon”!
