|Beaches Sandy Bay is a perfect oasis of harmony, spread among six acres of lush tropical greenery and 1,000 ft. of pristine beachfront. Catering to families, couples and singles, the new Beaches Sandy Bay is the perfect vacation destination for the whole family.
Refurbishments include a beautifully landscaped garden and main entrance, festive lobby murals, re-tiled pool-decks and a resurfaced

Two of the resort's four restaurants, the Bay Side and the Caribbean Grill have acquired new vibrant looks. In addition, the Almond Tree Grill and Terrace, located on the beach, has been completely remodeled. Dining options include Caribbean fare, Italian cuisine and a casual beachfront grill.
"The resort occupies an ideal spot on Negril’s white sand beach and has always attracted families as well as couples and single guests, all of whom enjoy both the beauty and affordability of the resort. Now with the extensive renovations, the experience of our guests will be enhanced even further," said General
Manager, Patrick Duffy.
Guests vacationing at Beaches Sandy Bay receive exchange privileges at nearby Beaches Negril (transportation not included). The resort also offers Air Jamaica check-in at the hotel, to make returning home a little easier.
