Beaches Sandy Bay, Negril

Located along Negril’s Seven Mile Beach, families will find everything they could need in a vacation spot at Beaches Sandy Bay (formerly Poinciana) although this resort is not nearly as extensive as its sister property, Beaches Negril or the Beaches Boscobel near Ocho Rios.

This all-inclusive resort has two pools, tennis, snorkeling, scuba diving and a fitness center. Guests have their choice of rooms ranging from a Deluxe with one king or two double beds, with a maximum occupancy of 4 people, to a luxurious Beachfront 2 Bedroom Suite, a two-level suite with kitchenette, living area, a double pullout sofa, two twin beds, and one queen bed. These suites have a maximum occupancy of 5. All guest rooms include air conditioning, telephone, satellite television, and private bath. Kids 2-15 stay here for a special rate and children under 2 stay free.

The Kid’s Kamp here will the children busy all day. Kids 4 years to teen will have a great time with arts and crafts, ice cream parties, face painting, sand castle building, movie watching, treasure hunts and much more. There is also a nursery for the kids under 4. Like other members of the Beaches family, this resort features Sesame Street characters and fun. There’s also an Xbox Oasis with all the hottest games (and no tokens!)

Parents who are planning on taking advantage of the Kid’s Kamp should make sure that their kids have bathing suits, sunglasses, sunscreen, hats, extra diapers, wipes, bottles, formulas and security objects.

Teens have their own program, which includes activities like Reggae dancing, boat cruises, tennis clinics, karaoke, dance parties, and movie watching.

Baby sitters are also available for an additional cost.
