Sandals/Beaches very general easy question!

Recommended Posts

The key card is also what they use to make purchases, makes it easy as they don't have to juggle a bunch of items!

 

For day pass guests for any purchases they will need to either placea cash deposit with teh front desk or use a credit card-the credit card is easier and faster!

 

Sandals & Beaches are wristband free! Once you are on property you have full access to all bars & restaurants!

I'm having a lot of confusion regarding choosing Beaches Negril as my wedding choice. Ive read on this site, trip advisor and oyster's reviews. For the money they should definitly not have three stars regarding room and/ or service. I would like to pick a place that is kid friendly, but not all about kids (maybe 5 kids coming), beautiful beach, all-inclusive with nice pools and good food. While researching I see RIU, Iberostar Rose Hall Beach,Sunset Beach and Gran Bahia Principe.

Hi Kimberly,

 

There are alot of differences between all of the properties that you mentioned regarding rooms, food, beach & service!

 

It would be impossible due to the amount of time it would take to do a full comparision and exploring the differences and why Beaches is priced where it is !

 

But to provide a quick over view - the price differences reflect both quality of the food & beverages, included amenities and convienance - such as not having to make reservations for dinner at an a la carte restaurant each morning or having to tip at each bar & restaurant! Also there is a huge difference in staff to guest ratio and the "elbow" space per guest at each of those resorts. The Riu's, Bahia and Iberostar are newer resorts and really are beautiful but to get the price point where they are at there are certain convienaces and quality that you give up as compared to a Beaches property.

 

It really comes down to what matters most to each bride and their guests!

Thnaks for the answer. I still not quite sure what we're going to do. I like the idea of being at a new resort. I really wish some of the resorts had a better wedding price list that is simple to understand (like RIU). I just want my husband to be and myself to be happy & my guests. I just afraid the price might turn them away.

I stand corrected and I apologize-not sure where my head was at with that one! With everything included I've just left it in my safe as I've only used it once in all the times I've been to the resorts over the years-for batteries!

The item you use for onsite purchases is small like a credit card with light lamination ( so that it doesn't get wrecked if it gets wet!) and paper thin. When you check in you present your "real" credit card and Sandals/ Beaches places a hold on it - usually 400.00. They then issue their "card" for your use on the property! A nice system as it proptects your card- not as many people having access to your numbers and you don't have to carry cash around with you!
