Negril is not what I had hoped for. I was looking for cultural Jamaica, and instead I found more than a hint of college student's Spring Break in everything (and I was there in November). My husband and I came here for our honeymoon, flying in from Ocho Rios, which we LOVED. It was bad from the moment we stepped into the resort. We had to wait about an hour to get into our room, and our room was terribly dirty. Our safe was broken, and none of the windows shut properly. We lived with huge bugs for the remainder of our stay in Jamaica (when you pay $400-plus a night for an all-inclusive, you expect a little bit more). I also came back to my room one day noticing my new magazine had mysteriously disappeared, hmmm. I suffer from heat induced migraines, so every time we left the room we would leave our air-conditioner on. Sure enough, when we'd come back to the room the maid would have turned it off. Also, the toilet backed up in our room, throwing sewage all over the bathroom.
This was more than disgusting, I didn't take a single shower the entire time I was there. And we had to go to the front desk to request a "Do Not Disturb" sign, which you would consider standard protocol for honeymooners. The evening entertainment was poor at best, and the entertainers constantly harassed my husband and I to get involved in their schemes. The staff in general at this resort was very unhelpful and unfriendly. Compared to Beaches Boscobel, this resort is a disgrace. I sent Sandals' a very lengthy letter, explaining in detail all of the misdoings of their resort. I received a letter of apology via email 7 weeks later. They did nothing to compensate my husband or I for our honeymoon. I would not stay here again.

We had a large four-poster bed. The tub was small and had an incorporated shower. The closet was an L-shape with entry on two sides. Each side had one shelf and a rod. There was an iron and ironing board. The safe was the old lock style.
The bathroom sink had a full-length mirror and a big mirror over the sink. The sink area was big enough for two sinks but had one. The hair dryer did not require holding the button down the whole time of use.
We had a TV in an armoire with two drawers. The satellite had a number of channels, including networks. Some had better reception than others. We had a CD player on the clock-radio.
We had Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, club soda, tonic water, ginger ale, juices, French white wine, red wine, champagne, and several off-brand liquors, along with Appleton rum. We always had plenty of glasses, and there was ice down the steps from our room, although it was not always replenished by the staff. The concierge people didn’t really stock the rooms like other places. They brought whatever we called for. When we asked for Diet Coke, they brought eight.
We did not get robes. I asked for them many times, and we finally got them on our third day. Todd had fallen while running out of the shower and had a whelp that was two inches across and almost half an inch high just from trying to answer the door. Then, another time, I had to scream, "just a minute" four times while I tried to get dressed from the bath when someone was at the door.
