Went to Sandals Dunns River for our honeymoon about 11 years ago and it was great. At that time they had 4 or 5 restaurants on site and you could visit others if you wanted to.
Definetly go and climb the falls, YES it is a tourist trap but worth doing. Be sure to check-out the exchange rate and know that when you shop you can barter on most anything. One thing I noted was that while Sandals is an All-Inclusive and states "No Tipping", the people who quickly whisked our bags off to the shuttle bus, did not work for the resort, therefore tipping is somewhat required.
Great place and you will love it.

I would definatly go off the resort. I loved seeing the real Jamaica. Hire a cab driver to show you around. Mine took great care of us and made sure we didn't get into places we shouldn't be. He even went into all of the bars with us. Somwhere I have a picture of my girlfriend at the time feeding a goat inside one of the local bars. Rick's Cafe is a must stop. Great sunsets and cliff diving.

Tipping your bartender $40. The first day will pay off all week long!!!!

For a weeklong trip??? $200. In tips should do it??

Stay away from the high-end resorts if you are looking for a fun people at your resort very stuffy and older......... we stayed at the Grand Lido http://www.superclubs.com/brand_grandlido/resort_negril not supper high end but it was stuffy for me,

IMHO it is about the people you meet at the resort and party with!!! Hedonism is just a little crazy side ….. and if you are over 30 you will be that creepy guy……….

That looks like a good time. Did Sandals offer a shuttle to Ricks or are you on your own?
