For 15 years, travel agents have booked their family clients into Beaches Sandy Bay, an all-inclusive resort managed by Sandals Resorts International. At the end of September, however, Beaches Sandy Bay will close its doors. After a 30-day period of refurbishing, training and transition, it will reopen as Sandy Bay Beach Resort, prepared to welcome guests starting in November. The resort will be operated by its original developers, Poinciana Resorts Ltd. Sandy Bay Beach Resort will be an all-inclusive property for the general market, singles, couples and families.
Much of the current staff will remain with the resort.
Sandy Bay Beach Resort offers two fresh water pools, three restaurants plus a beach grill, a kids club, a spa and a nightclub. The 128-rooms are divided into nine categories including two-bedroom beachfront suites, one bedroom honeymoon suites, and premium oceanside rooms perfect for singles, couples, families and groups. Rates start at $181 per person, per night based on double occupancy, representing a grand opening savings of more than 50 percent; children age twelve and under are $32 per night.

“Sandy Bay Beach Resort has the top three requirements for a great vacation – location, location, location,” stated Hilary Lanzer, vice president of sales at AskMeInc, “The resort is nestled between the sugar-white sand beach and lush trees, it is on the quiet part of the famous Seven-Mile Beach, and it is 10 minutes from the fun, culturally rich town of Negril.”
