  Client ages vary from the lower 30s to over 60, with most averaging in between. Also Grand Lido Negril attracts a great many European guests.

 
The resort is contemporary but usually quiet and refined while tending to cater to the upscale client who enjoys a higher level of service, dining and vacation options. Nude beach, pool and hot tub areas attract most of the laughter. Disco, huge VCR tape collection and fine dining are nice touches, although the night life can very subdued.

Take along a pair of long pants for the guys in case you feel like dressing up a bit. Jackets may be optional but certainly no ties. Guys, you can get away with wearing shorts much of the time, but if your lady likes to dress up, tag along with her in long pants. It's your decision.

There are few sights to see nearby. The locals are fun to kid with and be ready to bargain if you find that certain something that catches your eye. Many escorted tours can be arranged a the resort. There are a couple of small native craft markets there, one across the street from the resort.

Since you are on the far West coast of Jamaica, you might want to forget going to Montego Bay or Ocho Rios. Why not try Rick's cafe to watch some cliff diving and catch the sunset. Or better yet have the resort arrange transportation for you to the "undiscovered" YS Falls. Its about an hour and a half away, along the mostly deserted, but beautiful, South Coast of the island. Often you can have the entire falls to yourself and "do what you want to do" when you get there.

 
We think being met at the door with fine champagne and led to a private area for check in are nice touches. The resort is perfect for those upscale travelers who just want to get away from it all to relax and be pampered in a refined atmosphere.
     
The resort can be very quiet at times with no one seemingly around. Most guests are off at golf, SCUBA diving, at the spa, pools or beaches. Fine guest mix assures you of a refined experience.
     
Manager's specials may be offered at times where repeat guests enjoy an extra night free.
     


  Fall, winter and early spring can be less humid than late spring and summer. Late spring through summer can be more humid, with daily rain showers the norm. Of course, late August through early October can be unstable weather with a hurricane or two skimming around the Caribbean. Prices are generally higher from December 15 to April 15, with Christmas holidays rates higher than any time during the year.

  Resort has it all except an energetic night life for those that want it. Some guests visit Hedonism next door for evening energy at the disco or fun and games during the day. There is usually a charge to visit.
