    I am nervous about booking.... I had narrowed down my choices to three different resorts, the starfish trelawny, and then the two beaches resorts in Negril, leaning towards Beaches Negril out of all three. We were leaning towards that one b/c of the Seasame Street characters and large waterpark as we have alot of guests with younger children(8 and under). I also really liked some of the wedding packages they have available.

    Now here is my problem. I have heard afew rumors running around that as of November 09 the Beaches Negril resort will stop being a Beaches resort and is turning into a Breezes resort.

    I just was wondering if anyone else had heard any information about this
    Also, has anyone done a wedding at Beaches Sandy Bay and how did you liked the resort and everything?

    Thanks Alot!!

      Oooooouuuu I have heard nothing about Beaches Negril turning into a Breezes..That would be a HUGE shock if they sold off Negril though I will say as being a Beaches Negril bride and having my guests at Negril, Sandy Bay, and Sandals Negril .. Beaches Negril sells out alot more so than Sandy Bay.. Negril is also alot larger than Sandy Bay all around, plus Sandy Bay does not have a spa or rec facilities .. they use Negril with a shuttle service going back and forth. Our guests actually wished they paid more to just stay at Negril but it was sold out the week I got married and they could not transfer even for a few days. I guess I am going to look into this now because we thought of going back...

        Actually you probably heard about Grand Lido Negril turning into Breezes this coming fall- they are rebranding all of their Grand Lido properties into Breezes- not sure if they are keeping them adult only or allowing kids.

        If any of the Beaches properties would be turned it would most likely be Sandy Bay as sandals does not actually own the property-leases it.

          Ok "PHEW"....I was really worried about that. I also saw that the Starfish Trelawny is supposed to turn into a Breezes!! I just read that online the other day and some of my family was disappointed as they had stayed there before and had wanted to go back when we went for the wedding.

          We are still having such problems finalizing where we want to go, but now that I know that Beaches Negirl ISN'T turning into a Breezes I feel abit better (as it was one of our top 3). Thanks alot for the info Jennifer!!

            I am having my wedding at Beaches Negril September 30, 2009. I have to say that the resort not only looks beautiful, but that the staff has been amazing so far. They answered any & all questions before we even booked rooms. Once we booked our room a wedding coordinator in the US (Amber) called me to verify our travel dates and to go over the legal requirements. She also email me a wedding kit, pictures of different bands, a list of music to play during the ceremony & walked me through every step. I chose the Caribbean Sunset Preston Bailey package and am so excited! I am very happy with the level of customer service I have received. I checked out both Sandy Bay & Negril on trip advisor & decided that Negril had exactly what we were looking for.
            Good Luck! The hardest part was picking a location!
