Yesterday, I attended my re-certification for the Beaches and Sandals brand to maintain my “Certified Sandals/ Beaches Specialist.” While the Sandals (couples) brand is terrific, my client base has a large preponderance of families, so they tend to be more in the Beaches stage of life. And, of course, Beaches resorts are for everyone.
Beaches have more quality inclusives than any other resorts in the world. For you, that means more watersports + motorized waterskiing, unlimited scuba diving, the Caribbean’s biggest waterparks, more dining choices, up to 16 restaurants, exclusive Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street characters, nany programs, Xbox 360 game garages, Kids camps + Tenn programs, unlimited premium brand liquors, up to 14 bars per resort, exclusive Beringer Wines on the house, Free Martha Stewart Weddings (restrictions apply), Most Unique Suites, Scatch DJ Academy, English Guild Trained Butlers, More Botanical Gardens, More awards, Caribbean’s best beaches, Martha Stewart Craft Club, and more.
There are 4 Beaches Resorts – 3 in Jamaica, and 1 in Turks and Caicos.
The 3 Beaches in Jamaica are Beaches Boscobel in Ocho Rios, and Beaches Negril and Beaches Sandy Bay in Negril. The 1 Beaches outside of Jamaica is in T&C. Here are some distinguishing features on all 4 properties:

So – if you’re thinking of organizing a Beaches vacation, give me a call. We can talk about your needs and interests, and match the proper resort (and room category) to your family. But don’t wait! I’m having a devil of a time finding space for a family of 5 this Christmas, and March break is already almost sold out too.
