Had a Great time

Pros: Close restaurants
We just returned home and it was my sons first trip out of the country, it was a long drive there but well worth it. It was nice to not have to figure out how much to tip all the time. They have a tone of activities for children and families, I don't think it is much of an (adult) resort, they are more family oriented which was great for us. Whoopie, Dice and the rest of the entertainment staff do a great job. My son is 14 and met a ton of new friends from all over, the staff was wonderful, Dwight and Arron at the swim up bar are the best bartenders, friendly with everyone and great with the children. The beach is a little smaller than pictured but it is very clean, we had our own snorkeling gear so did a lot of water sightseeing. If you go off the resort or to the edges you are confronted by alot of pushy people trying to sell things, but that is their livelihood, and you get it most everywhere you go touristy. Food was good, not alot of choices, but they were good. Rooms were clean. Would recommend the Dune buggy, Dunns River Falls and Bob Marley tours, worth every penny. Overall had a great time and would go back tomorrow.

Fantastic Vacation for all of us!!!

My two teenage boys (ages 15 and 13), my husband, and I have just returned from Beaches Boscobel resort.This resort is everything their website says it is. The staff are courteous, helpful, & friendly. The room (Beachfront Honeymoon Suite) was spacious enough for the pullout sofa & a roll away bed with dancing room to spare! The maid service was first rate daily & our fridge was stocked at all times including the requested bottle of champagne for on the beach mimosas. Our porch was big enough for us to have our morning coffee or an afternoon snack while watching the world go by. We were indeed just steps from the beach.As for watersports, there were plenty of kayaks & hobie cat sail boats to go around. If you don't know how to sail, one of the water sport staff were eager to take anyone out for a sail. We told them we knew how & were able to go out a few times on our own, no problem. What a gorgeous place to sail!!!! We brought our own goggles so getting masks & such was not an issue & I'm not sure if they had them to use at the beach but we did use their equipment for our 2 snorkeling trips.Our room came with concierge service & we used this to get into various excursions like the concierge only snorkeling & glass bottom boat ride. All of this is included & you are not expected to tip anyone. Once you get to the resort, tip the driver of the shuttle then put your cash away unless you're buying souveniers.The breakfast buffet, the bbq shacks jerk chicken, the arizona, the the venetian were all quite good but our fav was the Arizona. This resort is well worth it!

The entire staff is attentive and strives to assist you before you even ask

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet
From the moment we arived we were made to feel at ease. The bell man met the van and told us to relax we were guests. He sorted the luggage by room and gave us every confidence that all bags would arive at the proper room. At the reservation desk we were greated by an over accomidating recieptionist who assured us she would escort each of us to our rooms. The bell man then returned with fruit punch or rum punch for everyone. We were walked to our rooms and given an explanation of the various amenities mini frig, air conditioning control fan control. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. Plenty of accomidating dinning options, and a variety of pools including a water park with slides and rope ladders. The hotel had our return flight information and we were givin the time to be in the lobby for pick-up, never a worry.

Ok for families but not a luxury resort

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: Nothing close, Noisy, older resort
Food was good and the rooms were clean. When it rained the hallways flooded. The bars swarmed with bees during day light hours and the staff did nothing about them. It is a family resort so children were running all over the resort. We went out on the glass bottom boat but saw no fish. If you wanted a decent wine with dinner, there was an extra charge. It is an older resort and shows its age.

Fun trip and got what we paid for.

Look, no one should be fooled that this is a four star resort because it is not, but the price isn't either. The beach is very small but clean and well maintained. The beds aren't exactly pillow top mattresses but they were comfortable enough to sleep in and the rooms were very clean. Hot water was sparse but with temps in the 90's, we didn't mind. The food in the main buffet was not bad but nothing to cheer about, however; the food in the other restaurants was surprisingly excellent especially the Italian restaurant and even the steaks at the Arizona were great. The pool was nice and not too over crowded and the pool bar was great. Red stripes flow freely all day. Our kids are a little older but still had fun on the slides and took full advantage of the water sports. They rode the banana boats over and over, we used the catamarans and water bikes. We even went out on the snorkeling trip. It was a very short trip but I was more than pleasantly surprised with the sea life that we saw. I played golf and the course was great and they provided a very helpful and friendly caddy. The service made the trip worth it and everyone there is remarkably friendly. They say no tipping but a few extra ones in your pocket is still greatly appreciated. It is true that outside the resort you will get a lot of pushy people trying to sell you just about anything so if that bothers you then go to Florida and skip Jamaica but you'll never get to meet * or * and that would be a shame. Lighten up and have some fun Mon!

Never again

Just got back & I will never go back - the resort is nothing like the pictures they have on their web site. There's no beach whatsoever & if you like swimming goodluck bc they have it roped off at waist high. Out of the 4 restaurants they offered 2 were ok, 2 were absolutely disgusting - the food wasn't bad but the pigeon & chickens everywhere along with their droppings can turn any stomach. We were supposed to have an oceanfront view but what we got instead was 6' piece of plywood to our left and a huge palm tree right in front. Couldn't see the ocean at all. If you are single and looking for something to do good luck bc there's no night life at the resort & if you wanted ot go outside the resort it has to be at their set times & they don't recommend taking a cab bc your safety isn't guarenteed - NICE!!! This is a nice place for children but not for anyone over 18. I will say though the staf was incredible very pleasnat.

check reviews before you book

We travel all over the Caribbean, We were here June of 2008. The hotel was ok, but my son who is 13 was at the waterpark, and was harassed by people who yelled at him through the fence wanting money. The fence is maybe 20 feet from the slides. There are peoples shacks on the other side and they attempt to talk to you through the fence. There is security at night, would not suggest going on the beach at night. The resort is narrow, and long. If you have asthma, or a heart condition, this hotel is not for you. It is by-level and you have to walk tons of stairs or wait over 10 minutes on the slowest elevator in the world. If you enjoy a good beach this beach is nice, but not much of it. Very narrow resort. Slides are shut down at 5pm, so if you have teens, sesame street is not much for entertainment. Did not feel safe letting them leave to go on there own. From one to ten, I give our vacation a 4. I would stay at another Beaches maybe in Negril.

Nice layout, needs lots of maintenance

I went with my 3 kids (4, 7 and 10) late February 2009. First off the brochures show the resort in perfect form. No surprise I suppose. Initial reaction was not good. The Bad: Worn furniture, painting needed, outside lights broken, rusty external stairs, outside canopies rusting away, old fixtures falling off walls in public bathrooms, broken elevators, etc. Most of the gym equipment was either broken or falling apart. Ok food. Tiny beach 3-4 flights down from main hotel. No snorkel gear available unless on snorkel trip-kids bummed. The Good: The kids LOVED the water slides along with the unlimited slush drinks, popcorn, snowcones, etc. Terrific shows throughout the day and at night. Staff are absolutely terrific. Friendly, warm and a great representation of Jamaican hospitality. Summary: We had a good time despite some bad weather, however, we would never go back. The Resort is very ""tired"" and needs a major overhaul IMO to justify the cost. Or, charge much less and deal with the lack of maintenance. Your kids will have a blast.

Renewed our vows/ 2nd honeymoon/ Daughters first Vacation

My husband and I along with our daughter and some other family members stayed here for 2 weeks. While we were there we renewed our vows on the beach barefoot. The beach is a little small but I liked the calm waters for swimming! The staff was busy but helpful when we needed them. We stayed in a regular room and that was fine for us. They supplied a crib so we didn?t have to sleep with our daughter. The nanny service was great. It was a little to hot for her to be outside all day and they took great car of her in the nice cool a/c room. Wish there was more choices for restaurants. Food was good though. If you?re going to get married or anything of that nature outside I recommend wearing a ton of deodorant! We were all sweating like crazy and we did our ceremony and 9am. Oh and if your going during hurricane season buy the extra hurricane protection. Hurricane Gustav came and cut our vacation short. All we had to do was write an email and the Sandals/Beaches family covered our days we missed. Turned out to be a week so my husband and I will be using it March 09 and will be visiting Sandals Grand Antigua! All we had to pay for was airfare. The rest was taken care of. Over all?..Loved it!! Drinks were great!! Pool Bar great except you sometimes have to share with kids. Do the Dunn?s River Falls! Amazing excursion and a lot of fun. Oh and snorkeling was fun to swim in the ocean but we only saw 3 fish and a ton of grass. Oh and water park is fun too.
