Negril Honeymoon Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Hi again! I've been searching for a couple months for the perfect honeymoon resort/villa/etc in Negril. We want something on the beach, and we want to upgrade to a beachfront room that we can walk out onto the sand if we want. Does anyone have any recommendations? I found the most perfect place but it's $5000 for the week, just for the hotel! yikes!

Suggestions pllllease?!

Basically having a room right on the sand is the most expensive room - that's what everyone wants so the price is at a premium. Couple Swept Away & Sandals Negril have beachfront rooms, the Rius are all set back, Sunset at the Palms is across the street, Couples negril are "kitty corner " to the beach-not really direct access from the rooms.

 

For an inexpensive property Grand Pineapple has a few rooms that are really close to the beach, a bitty patch of grass between you & the beach.

 

Good luck

I hope you find the perfect place. We chose The Tensing Pen. It isn't on a beach but on the cliffs. We are spending the first half at a beach resort and the second on the cliffs. Good luck on your search.

We thought about that also but a lot of the very nice resorts in NEgril on the beach are pretty expensive.

So, we decided to get married at Negril and spend another 3 days at the beaches resort, and we will go to couples tower isle in ocho rios for our honeymoon.

 

The beaches in NEgril are nicer but there is much more to do in ochorios. At couples resorts, all activities are included- scuba diving and snorkeling, trips to dunns river falls,shopping,, horseback riding catamaran cruise, au naturel island , free massage for honeymooners etc. We had a choice between couples and sandals at dunns river falls but chose couples because they offer more.

The cost for 6 nights was $ 2,300.

 

Depends on what you like though, my FI was a little bummed out as he prefers NEgril beaches but I persuaded him ;-)

I stayed at the RIU in Negril and they had rooms looking out to the beach, also along the cove there were a couple of other hotels that looked nice but not sure what they were. We had a great view without being beachfront though-we loved sitting on our balcony.

What about a smaller resort? I stayed at Country Country resort last year. All the rooms are colorful little cottages, they have beach front or garden rooms, the garden is really pretty and quiter then beach front. Plus, they have fruit trees all over the property and you can eat fresh mangos and coconuts for free. We choose half board (just breakfast included--giant and yummy food) because Negril's beachfront is happening, there are tons of places to eat and hang out--the food is well priced, and you can just walk up and down the beach---no need for a taxi. It's nice to explore--AI's can get old. Then there is the cliff side, we went to dinner there but didn't stay at the resorts ( you do need a taxi to go cliffside). They are really beautiful, no beach but the water is really calm, you can just jump in or climb down the built in ladders. We might go back after our wedding in Montego Bay--and stay half the week cliff side then beach side for the rest of the week. Hope this helps. Country Country is just great, check them out.

If you can swing it, I highly recommend The Caves. It is truly heaven on earth. The property is spectacular and the staff is amazing. We are spending a few days there after our wedding in MoBay.

Have you checked out Breezes Grand Negril? Its an AI, very classy, more upscale. There aren't beachfront rooms, but there are oceanview rooms, and they are right next to the beach and close to the buffets/restaurants. You get a patio or balcony for the amazing view!!! Its a couple-oriented AI, ages 16+ only!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
