At least with Carnival you get what you pay for.

I've never paid for getting seasick on a cruise..I guess it's just a perk! I loved Sandals Negril and look forward to going back.

Much closer to Carnival cruise than to Ritz Carlton.
If Holiday Inn type rooms are acceptable for your vacation and you're not too picky about food, Sandals will be just fine for you (just as much as a Carnival cruise will).

I happen to love Carnival Cruises but totally dislike Sandals.
Carnival has much better food, they do not overbook, entertainment is better, get the picture.
I sell Sandals to clients who insist, but tell them there are better choices.
SuperClubs Lido Resorts (3), Couples (3)
Ritz Montego Bay are better.

Sandals is actually not on par with Carnival if you can believe that. It's worse. I would pass on Sandals Negril. Try something else. Seriously.

Even though my head was swimming (no pun intended by the time I had read all your comments yesterday, I am back for more now after sufficient sleep. And the above comment made me laugh (I fear for our country's future as well, but feared more that Sandals would be filled with those types of people, no offense Pig, but your name, well...)
So now we are leaning towards Grand Lido, hoping we get some approval, ha, we just really wanted to see Negril, have heard its beautiful... awaiting your reply. Thx again.

I suggest you look at other message boards/forums and review sites before making your decision so as to get a BALANCED opinion of Sandals. I think it is a bit cheesy with the Sandals Logo plastered everywhere and the price you pay for what you get is a rip off. But you might like it for different reasons.

Take a look at these sites.

Just read the trip report posted at:

No more has to be said. Sandals is the biggest ripoff going. They are in a class with Enron.

Not true Buddy! While Sandal's is not at the top of my list, it certainly is not as bad as you make if out to be. Quit plastering your hogwash website all over the internet!

Buddy why don't you and your fatass crybaby whining wife get the hell out of here? If you would spend time trying to reesolve your alleged screwing with Sandals instead of putting up BS web site you would be better off. Your wife is fat, you are stupid, and we are sick of hearing about your so called bad trip. I expect that your other travel experiences have been at Motel 6 and all meals taken in McDonalds. You and your fat ass wife are disgusting.

Bud obviously works for SuperClubs or is just a pitiful person who has nothing better to do with his time than spread bad vibes. Word to the mother.
