Stayed Nov 8-15 in a Butler Suite Clarence Building and from the minute we arrived until we departed everyone went out of their way to greet us and make us feel like royalty. We love the beach and there had been a storm the week before so lots of sea grass came onto the shore with the tide. Each morning... More

Pros: the resort has excellent views of the Caribbean and a feature that few other Sandals resorts have - a pastry and coffee shop (Cafe de Paris). We had a butler room, actually a cottage, with a patio within steps of the beach and a tranquil and stunning view. However it was the genuinely friendly and ever smiling staff that... More

We visited Sandal RC last December (2013) at Christmas. This is just a basic review of a few things that stand out, good and bad. First, anybody going to Sandals or the like need to know that they are 4 stars at best and why anybody would think otherwise is not doing any real research and have not been to... More

I went to Sandals RC on 11/4 to marry my beau. I brought along family members and several friends. Here is some information about my experience. Activities & Excursions: We didn't do a lot of activities at the resort, but there appeared to be many to choose from. Instead, we took an excursion down the Martha Brae river with my... More

My husband and I were fortunate that my brother thought enough of us to invite us to be the witness and share their special day. As it turned out my husband and I also were able to have our honeymoon.

Spent 4 days with my wife at SRC from November 8-11 as a quick getaway from the cold in Canada. We went with the Butler, Swim-up room - and when we arrived, found out they switched our rooms without discussing with us first. The Good: - Andre the butler was fantastic, the dining for the most part was really nice... More

We stayed at SRC for 7 nights at the beginning of November. This resort is stunningly beautiful. The landscaping is amazing. We had a crystal lagoon swim up one bedroom room. It was really nice. Quite centrally located within the resort.....however!!!!...it would have been nice to have been warned about the noisy construction and jack hammering going on when booking.... More

The hotel was nice particularly the off shore island which had a buffet bbq lunch with jerk chicken, pork or sausages which was very nice. A swim up bar and the staff were very good. The ferry boat was going back and forth constantly which was good. What spoilt my stay here was the service at the Regency restaurant which... More

Arrived at RC on October 31....must say that the staff at this resort is probably the friendliest and most willing to please people we have ever met. The resort itself is beautifully kept, and the beach, although small, has lots of shade and a ton of sun chairs for sun lovers. The way it is laid out, even tho the... More
