Editor’s Review of Beaches Negril

Mom and dad are looking for a relaxing Caribbean vacation, but the kids are looking for excitement? No problem, mon! Beaches Negril, located a little over an hour southwest of Montego Bay's International Airport, is the Jamaican family holiday of everyone's dreams. The all-inclusive resort is built in an open, airy, plantation-style setting, with meandering pathways through lush tropical landscaping. And while it's a massive resort, designers have done a commendable job maintaining an intimate tropical feel, with the property broken into several different areas all connected by winding walkways. There are plenty of quiet public sitting areas and the abundant foliage creates a feeling of seclusion between the various buildings where the rooms ... more and suites are located. In short, if it's a tropical paradise you're after - and one with one of the best kids' clubs around - you've come to the right place.

Mom, dad or the grandparents can be beach bums along one of the most beautiful stretches of Jamaica's famous Seven Mile Beach, where you can enjoy all-inclusive use of water toys such as paddleboards, water bikes and Hobie Cats, as well as snorkeling gear. Younger kids will be in their own paradise at the Sesame Street-themed kids' club, while teens and tweens will enjoy their own lounges and activities, including a teen nightclub and even an onsite school where they can learn DJing skills. As reggae legend Bob Marley once said, "Don't worry 'bout a thing." It's a mantra that applies to this resort - in spades. As an all-inclusive resort, Beaches Negril offers complimentary food options, drinks, watersports and entertainment so you can just kick back with beautiful views and do what you came here to do - relax and soak in the care-free Jamaican vibe. less

I am a single mother and don't get to take my kids away as much as I would like. I was skeptical about and "All Inclusive" because of the horror stories I have heard! From the second you leave the gate at the airport there is a ...

On the heels of a spectacular visit to Beaches Turks & Caicos, decided to try Beaches Negril. Very very disappointed. Not coming back. A long, long bus ride on bus with no A/C airport to resort. Very very disappointed. We ...

Set on 20 acres, this 186-room resort is made up of 10 different room and suite categories to fit a variety of families, including suites that sleep up to twelve with three bedrooms and four full bathrooms. All rooms are tastefully decorated in a Tommy Bahama-ish style with ceiling fans, a balcony or patio, flat-screen TV, mahogany furniture and modern marble bathrooms with baths and showers filled with Red Lane Spa bath amenities. All rooms include air conditioning, an iron and ironing board, coffeemaker, telephone, refrigerator, clock radio, safe, iPod station and hairdryer. Most importantly for a lot of kids, every room comes with an XBox 360 gaming console. The front desk will provide you with games, for a $50 deposit, which is returned to you when the games are returned. Mini-fridges are stocked with all manner of beverages - and if you prefer more juices over beer, all you have to do is lodge that request with housekeeping and they'll sort you out for the rest of your stay.

All suites come with special concierge service, available from 7am to 10pm daily. Concierge service gives you preferred check-in at a comfortable concierge office upon arrival, where you'll receive snacks, Champagne or soft drinks/juice. TVs are set up with either news or children's programming for you to relax and entertain the kids, instead of waiting in the lobby. Your designated concierge will also assist in setting up excursions and scheduling reservations at the spa and restaurant. Concierge service also provides you with a stocked bar. Complimentary scotch, gin, rum, beer, wine, Champagne, sodas, juices and bottled water are all provided in your room. 

The ultimate indulgence, butler service is available in the largest suites. Your personal butler will pack and unpack your luggage, iron clothes, serve you drinks on your terrace and schedule restaurant reservations. Basically, they are there to handle just about any request.

Cribs and rollaway beds are both available on request, free of charge.
