Resort Review: Sandals Negril

Located on Jamaica’s famous, laid back and cool, Seven Mile Beach, this ultimate Beach Resort and Spa is serene and secluded and one of my favorite Sandals properties to date! The resort in whole is set amongst lush palm groves, powdery white sand beach and the calm aquamarine Caribbean Sea, the crystal clear water (some of the bluest in Jamaica) is a must for Scuba and Snorkel enthusiasts

Main Beach

Sandals Negril occupies 1700 ft. of Negril’s world famous and pristine Seven Mile white sand beach. The city of Negril’s western location on the island offers some of the best sunsets in the Caribbean with unobstructed views every night!
