Colorful and welcoming oceanfront hotel
The enclosed lobby at Grand Pineapple is small but charming, with bright, cozy armchairs and sofas. In addition to the reception desk, the lobby also contains information on nearby attractions and restaurants, tours and local adventures, as well as discounts for guests that book their next vacation before leaving. With a gift shop nearby and the restaurant a short distance away, guests won't have far to go to get to their rooms and begin their vacation.
Right on Negril’s Seven Mile Beach
Located on the busy Norman Manley Boulevard, the resort is split into two parts. The beach side is the main side, with the lobby, restaurant, and beach, as well as access to water sports and games. Across the street are lush gardens, the Red Lane Spa, and the pool. With hotels and restaurants on either side of the street, pedestrians should be cautious, but walking along the beach makes it easy to access a number of shops and attractions.
Choose between beachside or poolside rooms
With rooms on both sides of the street, guests have a choice between the more inclusive beach side, with the restaurant, gift shop, whirlpool, and water sports, or the quieter garden side, with the pool, spa, and gardens. Rooms are basic but colorful, with air-conditioning, coffeemakers, and in-room safes. Some rooms also have private patios or balconies.
Family-friendly activities and easy dining
With a spa, pool, and whirlpool, as well as a private portion of Seven Mile Beach, guests have plenty of places to relax. Sailing, snorkeling, and beach volleyball are available, and while the resort only has one restaurant, the buffet menu rotates through different cuisines. The Grand Pineapple is one of the smaller all-inclusives in Negril, but guests have access to water sports and other activities at the nearby Sandals Negril or Beaches Negril, for an additional fee.
Designed as an affordable all-inclusive, Grand Pineapple Beach Negril is a small, colorful resort that’s perfect for families, groups, and travelers on a budget. A restaurant by the water features buffet meals and games, and a pool and spa across the street offer quieter ways to relax. Great for families, the hotel offers a number of water sports on its gorgeous stretch of beach -- and guests can also enjoy activities at nearby Sandals and Beaches resorts for an additional fee.
