My wife and i just returned from a one week vacation at Sandals Negril. :love: Absolutely great trip! Wonderful resort, great people, great food, gorgeous accommodations. We have not one complaint about anyone or anything. :dance:

If anyone is heading there or contemplating the idea, feel free to PM me. I will be more than willing to try and answer your questions.

Slalomed every morning behind Prostar 197. First time behind Prostar. Nice!! Everytime out I kept saying to myself, "How cool is this!" Sandals Negril shares the boat with Sandals Beaches. Sandals Negril did have a 2012 Prostar 190 delivered while we were there but needed to be broke in and registered. Still fun to look at and touch.

Kudos to Jermaine. Great guy. Great driver. :toast:

Here are a few photos. Last one is room view.

Very Kool! I looked at that resort just the other week. Could not get in because they were booked (also could'nt afford it!).

We just booked for June 29th thru July 4th at the sister property down the beach...Beaches Sandy
Bay (taking the kids). Looking forward to some skiing, diving and relaxing! Nice to see the boats they use.
How was the ride from The airport? Heard it can be an adventure.

I would think 90 min would get you to beaches. The drivers like to see how close they can get to the oncoming car when they pass for sure. Roads r good. Scenery is great as you ride along the coast the entire way. All part of the experience. Yea man

I work for Sandals and I'm glad to see you had a great time. I need to keep a ski down there now that I think about it. I get to Negril every other month and its a special place!

ccraig...its not the same ride as you had 23 years ago...all highway now :(

Drive isn't bad...take advantage of the beer at the ariport, grab two for the road and don't watch the road...it seems like chaos but its organized chaos...now 15 years ago...that ride was something else.

Yes, it would have been nice to have my own ski with me but they did have a relatively new OBrien. There were a few times i had to quickly get back behind boat as the driver would maneuver between two boats moored. A couple of times those boats couldn't have been 10' away. It was all a hoot.

If i may ask, what do you do for Sandals?

Yes, they have a 190...it won't be as smooth as Negril so ask them to get you out early. A smile and respect will get you everything you want on the resort.

A bit of everything...I'm with projects so I deal with upgrades, construction, energy management, design, engineering...

Went to negril (couples swept away) for my honeymoon about 6 months ago and it was absolutely gorgeous. The sunsets are world class no mater what resort you go to. Wakeboarded abou 3 times... Coolest feeling in the world since the water was crystal clear

I just got back from Jamaica and wakeboarded behind that 197. It was awesome!! I'll post some pics later in a new thread...

Well that's great, because Beaches Sandy Bay had a clunker MC when I was there a couple years ago - but it got the job done. Had a great time. And my trip into town to Rick's Cafe was memorable indeed.
