Why Stay At Beaches Negril Resort Villages & Spa?
Once you stay at an all inclusive resort you will have a hard time thinking that vacation should be done any other way. Before last year, I honestly had no idea what all inclusive really meant. Look to be clear – it means ALL – seriously.
One part about this way of vacationing that I absolutely loved was that you paid all of your travel fees and room payments ahead of time. That scary bill at the end of your trip was nowhere to be found. I never felt like I should say no to anything while on the resort. Would you like dessert? Would you like to go snorkeling? Would you like another drink? YES, YES, and YES! It is a great feeling of freedom on vacation.
You Deserve This Experience:
Yes YOU do. We all do. I felt so relaxed and connected with Jeremy on this trip. My couples decided to come on this trip with their children and we could have as well but once again we decided that we needed this to be an adult only vacation. It is truly hard to explain but with the amazing scenery, fantastic staff, great accommodations, delicious food and drinks and fun entertainment there was never a time during our stay that we felt stressed. You need to make this memory and while our photos are beautiful they do not do Negril justice. It is something you must see in person – you deserve it!
With a choice of 9 international restaurants, the hardest decision will be which to try next. I will be honest, we went to dinner and then walk to another place for an extra dessert almost every night! SO GOOD! This is where the world of all inclusive really shows – you are never hungry while staying at Beaches. We tried all of the restaurants except the sushi one because that is just not our kind of meal. All of the restaurants serve amazing food.
We were living it up for those few days and that meant we were not only trying a ton of food but we were enjoying some fruity frozen drinks in the pool and on the beach and some fantastic wines while dining. I will have to say that our favorite fruity frozen drink was the Dirty Banana – extra filthy! HA!! It was fun to order and so yummy! A must try if you visit. Like I have discussed before, the drinks and food are included. This gives you the opportunity to let loose. Now if you need a kiddo friendly drink, they can also partake in the fun of the swim up bars. Those bartenders are amazing with the kids too. Plus who doesn’t love smoothies at the pool too!?
While I did not experience the Red Lane Spa while on the resort I heard only amazing things about it. The reviews are fantastic and from what I can tell the spa is beautiful and the perfect place to step into a total quiet and relaxation state. If you cannot stop in for an experience at the spa luckily you will get to try the Red Lane Spa products as they are stocked in your room.
Connections With Family and Friends:
I saw so many couples, friends and families really enjoying one another. So much laughing, playing and exploring. I feel like a resort like this allows you to really have time to enjoy each other and connect on a different level. Life is full of stress, when you come to a Beaches Resort you do not feel that stress. You can take time to play, rest and explore with no cares in the world.
Our experience this time was a bit different as we did not attend the conference with our friends. We went in alone but came out of the experience with some new friendships and memories.
“Daycare” on site:
For those of you that feel like the kiddos must come along you will be so pleased with the amount of kid friendly activities, day camps and adventures at Beaches. There are supervised kids programs that come with the all inclusive experiences. It was so fun to see the staff of Beaches interacting with the kids on the beach, at the day camp and at the pools. Those kids were having so much fun. There are even options for babysitting while the adults go out for dinner and drinks or late night swims. Those sitters do cost you a few bucks but from what I heard from others it was well worth it and the kids loved it. Something to look into if you are traveling with kids.
Something for everyone:
So you may not be the beach type but guess what? There is literally something for everyone. Games, activities, relaxing cabanas at the pool that are perfect for reading, a water park, beautiful pools and so much more. You will never find yourself bored while visiting Beaches. I have already thought about how this type of resort would be great for multi-generational family vacations.
I have talked about it a lot. The memories. I think back to our 5 days in paradise and literally have a smile on my face instantly. The experience is hard to explain and it truly is something that everyone deserves to experience. Jeremy and I often talk about how fun it was get out and enjoy the beauty of the ocean and reconnect and refresh.
The staff at Beaches wants you to do nothing but have a great time. I was amazed at some of the things the staff helped us with. Each and every staff member we came in contact with was kind and helpful. There is something great about that – true customer service.
Blue water that you can see through! All of the fish around us while we were in the ocean was a little creepy but wow, the colors and beauty was so worth it. Oh and the jelly fish stings – yes those hurt but I would take another sting any day if I was floating in that blue water! The blue water is nothing like the beaches here in the states. I always said I wanted to swim in blue water and now I have but now I am SO ready to go back!
Those are my reasons Why Stay At Beaches Negril Resort & Spa and the reasons I cannot wait for the opportunity to visit again one day.
Tell me about your experience with all inclusive stays with Beaches Resorts!

This looks fabulous! Right now we're buried in snow. We got 20" in the last storm that came through, and dreaming of being on the beach is my daily activity (between shoveling snow, that is). I love the idea that it's all inclusive, so you can really budget knowing how much your trip will cost you!
PS– how did you get invited to the Social Media on the Sand Conference?

I've been to Jamaica many times (I'm from Miami and my mom used to work for the airline so I'd fly on a buddy pass for next to nothing). Have some great memories there. I've been interested in trying the Beaches properties. Thanks for the thorough review! I was accepted to attend a couple years ago, unfortunately their email went to my SPAM folder and I didn't see it until one day after the deadline date. Last time around I was traveling overseas for work. Here's hoping I make it in next time!

Such beautiful pictures! It looks like such a great time for you and your husband! I also really like the all inclusive part!
Jamie Lewis says
This sounds like such a beautiful vacation and a wonderful resort. I totally want to go to Jamaica. Bookmarking this for when I book a trip. The gorgeous beaches, the beautiful water, and the yummy drinks look absolutely amazing.
Bradley Finnearty says
Beaches resorts look fantastic. It has been a long time since my better half and I have been to the beach. I really want to set on a beach and enjoy the ocean breeze with a nice drink. You put me in the mood to give one of their resorts a look.
I have not stayed at Beaches, but it's sister next door, Sandals Nigril, many times. My first husband and I went many times, and also became life long friends with two staff members, who I still stay in touch with today.Your stay at Beaches sounds exactly like our stay at Sandals, except Sandals is couples only. No kids. I do not have children so this was wonderful. My first husband passed away and one of our friends, CB, called me from Jamaica. (He is very poor at this time) I was so touched.
Eventually I met Joe and when we got married, we decided to get married at Sandals in Nigril. We had the absolute best time ever. CB was still in Jamaica at the time and came to our wedding with his lovely wife. When they say it's like family, they are not kidding. He also toured us to places I even had been before. I felt good, because I personally knew CB for so many years and I trusted he would look out for us, which he did. It was fantastic. Thanks for bringing back the memories.

Beaches Negril sounds amazing. I have always wanted to go the Caribbean. I've also never gone on an all-inclusive vacation but it definitely sounds like the way to go. I think it's great that you went without your kids. I think we all need time away from our kids to reconnect with our spouses; forget about being someone's mom or dad for a little bit and just be someone's honey 😉 Looks like you guys had a blast. I hope you get to go back again soon.

I have decided that we will stay at an all inclusive resort on our next vacation. Probably not this year, since my mother in law is taking care of booking it, but we will next year! I love the idea of having everything included in the pricing.
Everything about this sounds amazing! Not just the resort and the country, but the conference. Attending this conference is on my bucket list.
This sounds like a wonderful vacation. I am glad to hear that they cater to both those with kids and without kids. Having the spa included also sounds like a ton of fun. It has been way to long since I took some time to get away and just relax by myself.
