So, the resort did not open until March 31st. It is still not complete and people are complaining about it. It is a huge property with very little beach. I will be going to Couples Negril in June and will see for myself, but reviews starting to get posted on Trip Advisor.

"very little beach"?? There was not a lot of beach on the a/n side before. Is there less beach now?

Yes, Carol. It appears that the building go almost to the beach and my understanding is that it is really a "pool" resort, as opposed to a beach resort. There are rooms for about 1200 guests, from what I hear. It's also 3 resorts into 1, a family area, an adult area and an AN Area. The strange thing is that they put the family area closest to Couples AN Section and people are complaining about that. Apparently the resort didn't disclose this to people. Not sure why they wouldn't have put their AN area there. It will be interesting to see what happens. It's certainly not like the old GLN that we all loved.

Huhm, ok. I knew they were putting in a lot more rooms, but didn't realize it was going to be THAT huge! I am assuming, without knowing, that the a/n area is basically where it used to be? Are people complaining about no beach in general, or no beach for the a/n section?

Assuming you're asking about the Couples AN Section? Yes, same spot. The people are complaining that their kids can see naked people. Some are complaining about the lack of beach in general and that the water is only waist deep. If you meant Royalton's AN Section, I think it's on the other side, closer to Hedo, but I may be wrong about that.

I was talking about the GLN a/n section. For some reason, I thought it was in the same spot where the a/n side used to be.

I would love to see an overhead photo showing where the various "sections" are located.
