Been to Sandals Negril in Jamaica. Wonderful!!. Water is calmer than other spots around Jamaica. Skied every morning with a few others and water was calm. Adults only resort. We plan to go back. Lits of water activities included.

As we talked to others we heard White Castle was very nice with a British flare. Sandals Negril would be more casual. Royal Caribbean will have more of a party atmosphere, so we were told. We met several couples that frequent Jamaica and claim Negril is the best.

Hope that helps.

Looks like Negril has quite the reputation as they are sold out except for the most expensive rooms.

We are doing Sandals Negril in December. Read all sorts of reviews, but we aren't snobs so it should be a decent time.

I work for Sandals and skiers will enjoy Sandals Negril the most. Sandals Whitehouse is a close second but only early morning.

I just booked Whitehouse. I booked a hold on a Concierge room to debate whether we need butler service & room upgrade later.

We chose to go to Sandals Whitehouse and LOVED it!

Word to the wise. Bring your gloves and consider bringing your own handle. The slalom ski available was basically a combo ski and did not want to lean over. I can deal with that on vacation. But the handle might as well have been a bar of soap, it was so slippery it was hard to get up and would fly out of my hands under hard cuts. It was still a blast.

Here's a video. http://youtu.be/rCz2ThUiees
