    Hello ladies - I am going to be married at Beaches Sandy Bay in Negril, Jamaica on 1-4-12.  They are going through a complete renovation that should be completed later this year - YEAH!  I figured Beaches Negril has a bridal thread so why not start our own for Sandy Bay!

    I would love to hear about your experiences w/ the on site coordinators - Chloe from Montego Bay that is helping me in the planning stages has been awesome!

    I would also like to hear from ladies that just did the 30min reception - did you bring your own music, was it lame - do you wish you had splurged.

    Has anyone utilized the steel drummer - was he worth it?  Do you choose the music he plays?

    Thanks ladies!

    Nicole

      Over half of my guest will be staying at Beaches Sandy Bay so I will let you know how it goes. I think I am going to try the steel drummer so I will also give you feed back on that. I am a little worried about the condition of the resort because trip advisor has some pretty mixed reviews.

        I know what you mean.  I too have heard some bad - but more good than bad.  When are you going because my TA/friend is going in February and meeting w/ Chloe the WC and she is also going to take a bunch of pics of the upgrades/renovations!  If there is anything you are interested in seeing let me know (although I have a long list of things I want pics of - lol).

        PS - Chloe told me today that we could use starfish for the fower-girl and if we ask on-site WC she will arrange for them to be picked up after the ceremony at no extra cost!  Can you believe it? - something FREE - lol.

          LOL! That is great I am interested in seeing the actuall conditions of the rooms and bathrooms. That seems to be what everyone complains about the most from  the reviews I have read. It would be great to see a pic so if I need to tell some of my super pickey guests to say at Beaches Negril. My wedding is not til 07/22/11.

            I'll keep you posted - hopefully I can have some pics by mid-Feb.  I will for sure have some verbal info soon after she returns the 1st part of Feb.  I'm hoping they are ditching the bright, bold color scheme.  I know from Chloe my WC, she has said that they have added a club Liquid and Xbox garage for kiddos.

                  you know that you can call the Jamaica tourist board and they will mail you brochures for free.

                      Information I saw on facebook "We Love Beaches Sandy Bay"  that I thought might come in handy. It was from Mark-

                      ...-Beach J’ouvert activity now takes the form of a Picnic on the lawns (Thursdays by the Ixora Lawn). The programme still includes centralized beach activities.
                      -Romance in the Garden” - Entertainment Activity each Wednesday evening by the Ixora Gardens. Guests are entertained for the evening by Moses Beckford, while enjoying Beringer wines. The event also includes our Chocolate buffet.
                      -Managers Beringer Wine and Cheese Cocktail Party time changed to 5:30pm every Monday.
                      -Thursday Night - White Night “Charity Casino” with proceeds going towards the Sandals Foundation.

                      The following product improvements were made:

                      -Sundowner blue canvas roof replaced with new canvas. New colour is sand.
                      -New Awning placed by Bayside walkway and Piano and Billiards Terrace Area.
                      -Fixtures with New Beaches Logo (red) placed behind the Front Desk as well as the resort main entrance.
                      -Whirlpool that adjoins main pool was re-piped and re-tiled. Whirlpool now has hydrotherapy jets.
                      -Recycle bins (for plastic only) erected around the resort, as part of on-going Environment, Health and Safety efforts.
                      -Restrooms by the Piano and Billiards Lounge were expanded to now include separate male and female areas.
