FOR the second consecutive year, Jamaica-based hotel, Beaches Negril Resort and Spa has copped the coveted TripAdvisor® Travelers' Choice Award for the Top Hotel for Families in the Caribbean.

Sister property, Beaches Turks and Caicos, walked away with the third place title.

TripAdvisor® is the world's largest travel site, connecting real travellers who share advice and reviews on vacation destinations. It also links visitors to hotels, restaurants, attractions and other businesses in the hospitality industry.

The TripAdvisor® Travelers' Choice Award is in its 12th year, and winners are determined based on the reviews and opinions of millions of travellers globally. The world's most outstanding properties were identified in the categories of Top Hotels, Bargain, B&Bs and Inns, Family, Luxury, Romance, and Small Hotels.

"This is a wonderful achievement," stated Adrian Whitehead, general manager of Beaches Negril, upon learning of the milestone achievement.

"We always strive to provide our guests with the most high-quality and innovative products and amenities on the market. Beaches is also bolstered by a team committed to excellence. I am positive we can take it to another level and in doing so, highlight the Jamaica tourism industry as a powerful brand -- a force to be reckoned with regionally and worldwide," he said.

In 2013, the resort was also named among the TripAdvisor® Travelers' Choice awardees for Top 10 Best Family Resorts in the World and voted the #1 hotel for the Caribbean, Bahamas and Bermuda, in the world-leading Travel + Leisure magazine's readers' survey.

For 14 consecutive years, Beaches Resorts have held on to the World Travel Awards for World's Leading All-Inclusive Family Resort Brand. Nestled on the world famous Negril seven-mile white sand beach, Beaches Negril has, among its offerings, adrenaline-packed unlimited land/water sports, a Kids Kamp & Nursery as well as an interactive teen's programme, Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street and a Pirate's Island Water Theme Park.
