We are again at the Royal Caribbean Resort and it is just as great as it ever was. We are in a room in the new block (which was finished in January) and it is absolutely marvellous. Open plan with a bath tub on the balcony, which luckily now has curtains to shut it off should you wish to take... More

We got married at Sandals Royal Caribbean in February. I completely loved everything about my wedding. It was the most beautiful wedding I could have asked for. This location is beautiful with a lot to do. We had so much fun celebrating with family and friends. The staff at this resort truly make a huge difference. The staff really takes... More

We went to RCS for a friend's wedding where about 60 people came during the week. When we arrived we were directed to a Sandals lounge at the airport & then to a waiting shuttle to take us to the resort. We arrived in the morning & were told the room would be ready in a couple of hours which... More

This resort is one of the smaller properties with everything in close proximity.The service by the staff was very good and helpful.The restaurants were good but could benefit from more air conditioning but I accept that this is difficult due to their location.Our favourite restaurant was the Regency.The gardens were well kept and Winston was particularly cheerful.Jolene from the loyalty...

My husband and I visited this resort as a quick escape from our busy lives and it was the most incredible getaway. We received a complimentary upgrade to the Butler Suites (butler not inc.) as a first time welcome to Sandals. The room was perfect, although we were rarely in it. The beach, the water, the friendly and extremely accommodating... More

This Sandals would be somewhat impressive if you had not been to any of their other properties, simply because Sandals owns it. Sandals can not make a bad vacation for you. I know this because I am a diamond member and have been to almost all of the Sandals resorts more than once. In fact I believe we have visited... More

This property is picturesque. It has a sweet beach, fine dining and great rooms. We were upgraded to butler. They are large with Jacuzzi tubes, double sinks, walk in showers, and large balconies. I am not really fancy but this placed ticked all of the “fancy” buttons for me. I missed the smiling faces I am accustomed to seeing on... More

This was our fist real trip alone after being married 17 years! We had a tight budget and limited time between work and arranging for our kids to be cared for. After much research, I chose Sandals ROYAL Caribbean. We wanted couples only and the private island seemed cool. We went for 4 days, first week of April 2015. The... More

Thank you for your review. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed having some alone time in Jamaica with our wonderful team but we are saddened that the weather was not as sunny as we would have liked for much anticipated trip to paradise. We also apologize if you felt that any other aspect of your stay did not quite... More

This was my boyfriend and my first trip to a Sandals resort and we loved it! The resort property is sort of small, but it never felt too crowded or like we were on top of other guests. The private island is awesome, especially later in the afternoon when most people have gone back to the main resort. There was... More

Recently stayed at this resort for a friend's destination wedding and wasn't that impressed. I found it overall to be average--a 3-star resort, but nothing special. I stayed in a beachfront grand luxe room. I'm not sure what panoramic lens they used for the picture on the website, but the room and its bathroom were rather more cramped than the... More
