Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa - Negril, Jamaica -
The Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa, an all-inclusive SuperClubs resort, is set on Negril's Bloody Bay on the southwestern coast of Jamaica. The focus here is on adult relaxation and recreation, from the resort's clothing optional beach to its proximity to the local crafts market and the Appleton Rum Factory; families with children age 16 and older are welcome as well.
Sprawling grounds with tropical mango trees, a 300-year-old cotton tree, and landscaped gardens are the backdrop for the Grand Lido Negril Resort & Spa's marble, glass and stone architecture. Local artwork in the lobby is available for purchase. The suites are set in white Mediterranean-style buildings fitted with wooden railings, cedar doors and red-tile roofs. Suites have white walls and sunken sitting areas with coffee tables, couches and mahogany desks. Bathrooms, done in green and white, have multi-head showers.
The chefs at Grand Lido prepare cuisines from around the world. At Piacere, a French menu is served accompanied by live piano music. La Pasta caters to those looking for a casual Italian meal. The Timber House is designed like a tree house and has a Continental menu, as does the Café Lido; Gran Terrazza has a buffet menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and RASTAurant specializes in Jamaican food. The latest addition to the resort's fleet of restaurants is Munasan, where Japanese cuisine is the main attraction.
