Negril - The Land of Amazing Beaches!

Negril - The Land of Amazing Beaches!

​When you hear stories of the amazing beaches of Jamaica, you’re likely hearing someone’s story of a vacation to Negril.  Negril is known for the world famous seven mile beach which is rated as one of the top ten beaches in the world.  The north end of the beach is home to a number of great all-inclusive resorts and the south end is home to many smaller boutique hotels.  

If you do any research into this area you’ll also hear about the “cliffs” and the “cliff jumpers” and you’ll be hearing of the the beach area south of Negril beach accessed the West End Road.  There you’ll find Rick’s Cafe - a very popular joint to watch the cliff divers and enjoy the local Jamaican vibes.

Grand Pineapple Beach Resort, Negril is a cute little inexpensive 3-star all-inclusive on an excellent part of Negril Beach.  Grand Pineapple is Sandal’s budget line all-inclusive. I visited this resort in 2012 and was really impressed.  I talked to a number of guests that come back year after year and stay for weeks and absolutely love it. Rooms are in little villas. Rooms are quite basic but very clean and offer really everything you need.  The attraction here is the beach. If you’re a beach bum and want access to easy access to food, drinks, great friendly staff and guests for a vacation of laying in the sun, this is a resort you should consider looking at.

Riu Negril is another all-inclusive on the Bloody Bay Beach in Negril.  Riu fans who have enjoyed other Riu resorts will love this one.  It’s lots of fun either at the pool and on the beach.  I think this resort is most suited to singles and couples or families looking for a lot of Jamaican fun.  It’s not so much suited to anyone wanting a quiet, upscale retreat.

Riu Palace Tropical Bay is located beside Riu Negril on Bloody Bay and guests enjoy exchange privileges with nearby Riu Negril.  Riu Palace is a more deluxe all suite all-inclusive resort offering some extras that are important to some such as more premium liquor, 24 hour room service, more and better a la carte restaurants and more.  You’ll still enjoy a young, active party type atmosphere with a great beach and more included in your stay.

Couples Negril is an amazing adults-only all-inclusive resort located on Bloody Bay in Negril.  Couples offers diving and tours included in what is already a really deluxe all-inclusive package. Enjoy a ton of water sports including windsurfing, watertrikes, Hobie Cats, snorkeling, water skiing and kayaking.  An added bonus is free scuba diving for certified divers or free resort certification and one free introductory dive for new divers!!

Couples Swept Away is one of my favorite adults-only all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica.  I love it for it’s perfect location on seven-mile beach, it’s great accommodations, friendly service, great food and for the activities this resort offers.  If you’re an active person take a good look at this resort.  If you’re interested in tennis, paddle ball, swimming and yoga this is perfect for you!  The resort features a 10-acre sports and fitness complex including a fully equipped gym with Cybex fitness equipment, a lap pool, 10 tennis courts, an aerobics and yoga center, saunas, steam rooms and much more all including professional instruction. If you love golf, there’s free greens fees included too!  A treat that you don’t want to miss are the beach parties held on seven-mile beach in the evening especially Saturday night’s Lobster party!

Sandals Negril Beach Resort & Spa  sits on the longest stretch of Negril’s seven mile beach.  This adults-only all-inclusive is an AAA 4-Diamond Award winner and a very popular resort.  Here you’ll find rooms that access directly onto the beach and others with your very own plunge pool.  One of the great features of Sandals is that scuba diving, snorkeling and lots of water sports are included.  The dive shop here is recognized by PADI and National Geographic as a Five Star Dive Center making this resort very popular for divers.  

Breezes Grand Resort & Spa is an adults-only resort considered as a super-inclusive.  Breezes Grand is a AAA 3-Diamond Award winner which tells you the high quality of this resort.  Set on a great beach and on 22 acres of lush tropical gardens and only 30 miles from the airport, it’s a popular all-inclusive. You’ll enjoy 6 bars and 7 restaurants, 2 pools including one near a clothing-optional area, a great spa and tons of activities.  Water sports available include water skiing, sunfish sailing, scuba instructions, snorkeling, kayaks, glass-bottom boat rides.

Beaches Negril Resort & Spa is the very best family resort located in Negril.  This super family-friendly all-inclusive is set on the widest area of seven mile beach. This all-inclusive features something for all ages from a nanny-care baby club to kids club to teens club with an Xbox Game Oasis.  Whether your child wants to bake cookies with Cookie Monster or have Elmo read them a bedtime story or enjoy the day on water slides or make tons of life-long friends, this is the resort for you! Pirate Island water park and lazy river are so close to where the adults enjoy their pool time that everyone can relax and enjoy themselves all day long! Beaches also offers free scuba diving, snorkeling, water-skiing, windsurfing and paddle boats.

Negril is what I would call the perfect resort area with sun, swimmable ocean, the best of beaches, luxury all-inclusive resorts and close proximity to reefs.
