Children/carseats at Beaches Negril

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,


My fiance and I are getting married at Beaches Negril on Oct. 11, 2011.  Our son will be with us and he will be 20 months.  I am a little concerned about the bus ride from the airport to the resort, as I hear about the crazy driving!  Of course he will need to be in a carseat for the ride.  Will we have to bring one with us? Is the travel/resort pretty accommodating to toddlers??






Thanks in advance!

Hi ~ I just got back from Beaches this past week & traveled with my 18 month old daughter..since she was under 2-she flew on my lap for free so we did not bring a car seat. She sat on our laps on the bus also.  Was the bus ride safe? The ride there was a little bumpy & crazy but the ride on the way back to the airport seemed a lot better.  Another couple we traveled with had a 2 year old & 4 year old & they didn't bring seats either.  Depending on what bus you travel to the resort..I'm not sure how a car seat will fit?! We had 2 different buses-1 would work the other--not sure?

I would somehow bring an umbrella or ANYTHING that would offer shade.  Our daughter fell asleep 2 on the beach & it was hard to put her under a tree..but we tried to make shade for her w/ towels.  A snap on umbrella would have been wonderful--if they make such a thing?!?! Or bring clothes pins to pin the towlels to the top of the chair..also a clothes pin would have been wonderful for our curtains in our room--seemed to not shut the entire way.

Had a wonderful vacation & my sister in laws wedding there!

Hi Heather,


You will probably find child seats quite few and far between in many countries, including Jamaica. Most airlines will allow you to carry a car seat for free as part of your checked baggage. Key word there is "most" and I'm not sure who you are flying with. Even if you do bring the seat, that's not to say the transfer coach will have seat belts!


You could find a private transfer company if you would like to ensure your childs safety but you will certainly pay a premium for that. A taxi at the other end is another solution.


You could contact Beaches directly and query as to what type of vehicle they use for their transfer service and if it is "car seat compatible" if you're worried.


This property has an excellent nanny service, I can't recall ever hearing a complaint about the child care staff or the kids club. The opposite in fact, it's usually glowing reviews.


Hope that helps!

We also used the Daycare there twice.  My daughter did great there both times but trust me it was HARD leaving her & I made Dad, Grandma check on her both times to make sure.  I knew if I went in  & she saw me ~ she'd want to go with me.  It was nice to get her out of the sun for a bit those 2 days.  I would have used it more--just didn't for some reason.  1 of the times when I went to pick her up there was a little girl just crying saying Mommy, Daddy--I wanted to go find her parents for her.  :(  

But the staff is WONDERFUL...   What we did was all went in the night before & let her play & get use to the girls/toys & that seemed to help a bit the next day when we took her.  (Just a little advice that worked for us)   Also~ if you are trying to decided if the Character Breakfast is worth it- DO IT.  My daughter LOVED it... Yes she was scared at 1st of them--but the whole trip she wanted to follow them.  I wasn't sure if it was worth the $50 for 4 people (we took my other 2 daughters 11 & 14) me & my husband.. and my 18 month old was free.   We even bought the $30 framed picture...  something we will always remember.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.  I did so much research on this place before we left & had so many questions so I'd be happy to help.

Oh..1 other advice-bring more diapers than you think.  I thought I had plenty & had to buy 2 at the Atlanta Airport to get us home.  I had leftover swim diapers but not enough regular ones.   Oh and bring extra sunscreen... the spray stuff is nice especially for touch ups & to get the top of heads--but goes QUICK.  2 couples that were with us ran out. I had brought 2  big tubes & 2 sprays--but again there was 5 of us..but both sprays were gone by the end of the week.

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
