Trip Report Just Back From Negril

Jump to last reply

I’ve never been to Jamaica before – nor had I ever been to an all-inclusive. After much research (on this site and others) my buddy and I decided to go to Breezes Grand Negril. I’d been given the impression that Negril was a fun, happening area. Perhaps it is, but our resort was on Bloody Bay – not seven mile beach. Bloody Bay was a bit boring – no nightlife. Our resort had some nightlife but most of the clientele were quite elderly. In order to go to seven mile beach, we had to cut through Hedonism II and they didn’t really like it when we did that (they had to escort us through, lest we stay and join the frivolity). If there really were beach parties on Negril beach at night, we didn’t have any easy way of getting there – it didn’t feel particularly safe to be wandering about at night.
Even the location itself was a bit disappointing. Fodor’s gives Negril beach a gold star but – much like the seven mile beach in Grand Cayman – I wasn’t that impressed. It’s overdeveloped. True, the sand is like talcum powder but there aren’t any waves. There is no charming village to visit – everything is on the beach and you basically have to stay at your resort.
I don’t mean to offend anyone with this. I know people are passionate about Jamaica. Perhaps my expectations were too high. If I go back, I’d want to see Ocho Rios or other parts of the country.
