Please help!
Normally I recommend people stay at a smaller hotel and not go AI but with teenagers its nice not having to worry about where to go for dinner, paying for dinner, etc. Nice just to have everything already paid for.
That said no resorts are really geared towards teens but I take it you want one not geared towards couples or families with young children.
RIU is one that comes to midn that fits what your looking for. The one downside about RIU is its kind of isolated from the rest of the hotels on 7 mile beach but that may be the best fit. I believe they claim to be 5 star, probably not what you expect of a 5 star but it is nice.
My fav hotel in Negril is CoCO La Palm. Check out some reviews on trip advisor nad their site. AI may be better for your situation but I cant say enough about how great this hotel is and affordable, summertimes like 65 per night.
I dont think this is what your looking for since you were considering beaches which is really pricy but there are also some sort of budget AI's on the center of the beach whcih are cheaper, nice but not beaches if thats what your looking for. Two that come to mind is Legends and Rhondel Village.
is a good travel blog. ALso check out trip advisor or negril one stp.
