Grand Pineapple Beach Negril to reopen Dec. 15

Sandals Resorts International, owners and operators of Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts, has announced plans to reopen Grand Pineapple Beach Negril on Dec. 15 following an overwhelming response from past guests to the resort’s closure in August. According to Gordon “Butch”Stewart, chairman of Sandals Resorts International, the hotel company’s decision to reopen is in response to customers disappointed by its closing, and as such will reopen for business and is accepting reservations as of yesterday (Oct. 16). Stewart commented, “This charming resort has a passionate fan base that truly loves its simple tradition of warm Caribbean hospitality and it seems nothing else will do. Since we announced the closure of the resort this summer, we’ve received countless calls to reconsider, we’ve heard the calls loud and clear and I’m happy to say that we are acting upon them.”The all-inclusive resort features 65 colourfully decorated and well-appointed cottages and manor rooms with large open spaces in manicured gardens.
