Negril is absolutely beautiful and the people are welcoming. The beach has soft white sand and the water is clear blue. I was delighted when I discovered we could to snorkel right on the beach.
We stayed at Sandals Negril. Although you can tell the resort is aging, the staff and beach made up for it. The resort offered up activities. We went snorkling, tubbing and sailing every day. I would recommend getting a spa service while there. The Redlane spa at Sandals is wonderful and relaxing.
You MUST get some jerk chicken and Jamaican patties. We ate this at least once a day while there. You will not find the authentic flavor anywhere else.
This was our 3rd time to Negril. We try and visit different caribbean islands each year but Jamaica tends to call us back frequently. It's always a toss between a new island and Jamaica. If you haven't visited Jamaica yet, I recommend Negril as it's close to all tourist destinations and the beach will leave you speechless.
