Amazing Staff! Teens LOVED IT!

Flag review

Our family was introduced to the Teen Activity Director, O'Shane, upon check in; from that moment on our kids were involved in all Beaches Sandy Bay had to offer. The activity team here goes out of their way to keep kids busy and happy; from beach volleyball, snorkeling trips, late night X-Box tournament to the family fashion show. Additionally, the evening entertainment here was far better than AI's we have been to in Mexico. The resort is smaller than some of the other "mega-resorts" which we appreciated. The friendly staff called us by name from the first day and remembered our favorite drinks; they went above and beyond our expectations! Compared to other AI's we have been to the food was very good and there were lots of cool yummy drinks (virgin and top-shelf) offered. Water sports included was a financial plus, with what we saved on water sports we took the family on a zipline tour in the jungle. Our suite, although dated, was super clean and our favorite was the wrap around deck that overlooked the beautiful beach which was an amazing place to sip a pina colada and gaze at the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen. If you are used to luxury accommodations, this may not be the place for you (try Beaches Turkes and Caicos), but for us this was the perfect resort four our teenagers AND mom and dad!

Tips for Families

Ask to meet the kids activity director soon after check in, get the kiddos involved immediately and enjoy!

Zipline Adventure Tours - we booked the tour and transportation through their website. A bit of a drive, but worth it; during the drive our driver pointed out land marks and told us history and economics of the island.

My Kid's Review

Beaches Sandy Bay was the best vacation we have had. The people who worked there were so nice and made us feel welcome. We got to know OShane right away. He is the best! There was always something to do like wake boarding, snorkeling and learning to sail a hobby cat. At night we hung out at the game room with other teenagers and there was "night club" for us too. We were lucky to be able to go to such a fun place.

The teen director here (oShane) went above and beyond to see that our teens were include in the activities. He seeked them out to participate in beach volleyball and the family fashion show. He stayed up to play late night xbox with them and invited them to teen only meals. The resort was very much what we expected. Yes maybe the rooms, though very clean, could have used an update. What was lacking there was more than made up for in customer service. We very much enjoyed our week at Beaches Sandy Bay and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone who is looking for an awesome family experience without the hefty price tag.

Tips for Families

Relax and enjoy. Teens are in good (and safe) hands!

My Kid's Review

We really appreciated the workers at Beaches Sandy Bay. We visited Beaches Negril for an afternoon. It was really big and lots of people. We liked the attention we got at Sandy Bay. We made friends for a lifetime there thanks to oShane and the entertainment workers.
