BEACHES Negril Resort and Spa has been voted 'World's Best Hotels for Families' for the Caribbean, Bahamas and Bermuda in a reader's survey by the leading Travel + Leisure magazine. Beaches Turks & Caicos copped second place.
Every year Travel + Leisure asks its readers to complete a detailed questionnaire revealing their favourite hotels, destinations and companies which represent the best in hospitality and travel. Hotels are assessed on room/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food and value.
"This award represents the best in world travel so it is truly an honour to be at the forefront. It further underpins the hard work of our dedicated team, as well as our commitment to constantly improving our products and services in order to guarantee visitors to the Caribbean an unparalleled vacation experience," remarked Adam Stewart, chief executive officer of Sandals Resorts International, parent company of Beaches.
Beaches Negril, nestled on the world-renowned seven mile white sand beach, features island charm and, like its sister property in Turks and Caicos, is stamped with a warranty to provide guests with the ultimate Luxury Included® family getaway.
With an exhilarating water park, specialty restaurants, premium brand beverages, a wide array of land and water sports, sumptuous food; and an enviable kids' programme, including the Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street, Beaches Resorts continues to maintain its dominance in the hospitality industry.
Going for gold? - Guests and team members at Beaches Negril could hardly contain their excitement as they watch
entertainment team members ‘go for gold’ during the resort’s ‘Olympic Opening Ceremony and
Parade,’ earlier in August.
