I just want to say that I'm not the girl that has ever thought about planning a wedding. EVER. So when it came time for my now husband and I to hold a ceremony, there was no better choice than Sandal's Royal Caribbean. Upon arrival, we were treated to refreshments and appetizers by Shaniq! She was amazing and even upgraded... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Even though the resort was at capacity, we never felt overcrowded. It was easy to grab a lawn chair or other seating. The food options were good but not excellent. I do like that everything was all inclusive so that we didn't have to worry about every nickel and dime. We are very glad... More

Our experience here will always be close to our hearts due to the fact of this is where our son was conceived! From the service,food, music entertainment, and all the activities they have available is amazing!! Make sure you go dune buggy riding while there. You get to see so much of real Jamaica and you get to experience authentic... More

Beautiful beach resort with an awesome ocean view. All inclusive and great friendly staff. Try a steel bottom drink. Beach was raked down every morning. Bar and grill located right on the beach. The swimming area is roped off to keep the locals who are trying to sell their wares from getting to close. But expect a few just outside... More

This property is small and intimate. Very easy to get around and get to any of the restaurants, bars, or the beach. I did not get to dine at the French restaurant, but the Thai and Eleanor's was fantastic. The last restaurant that doubles as the breakfast spot had a set menu for our group. My room was huge with...

My wife and I celebrated our Honeymoon at Royal Caribbean and had an amazing time. It was our first trip there and we will certainly be going again. Our room was a beachfront walkout giving a great view and location within the resort. The staff was extremely courteous and attentive and we would like to give a special thanks to... More

This was our third trip to Jamaica and our second stay at Royal Caribbean. We stayed on the second floor of the Clarence building and had Adia and Nigy as butlers. As the saying goes, "Once u go butler, u don't go back!" Excellent service, clean grounds/rooms and friendly staff make for an unbelievable and carefree experience. Food is excellent... More

My husband and I stayed at the Carlyle but visited the Royal Caribbean. It was our second favorite (after Montego Bay). The restaurants were tasty, especially Eleanor's. Our waiter Sean was great and even balanced my plate of coconut bread pudding on his head! Had a great time. If you're looking for a good beach, visit the Montego Bay resort.... More

Our room was lovely a with a beautiful view. The private island was a great place for sun and plenty of shade when you wanted it. Good swimming,snorkeling and food. Perfect resort for a lazy long weekend.

The grounds were gorgeous and the service impeccable. I had been to all inclusive resorts before...including a Ritz Carlton, but Sandals Royal Caribbean was by far the best! EVERYONE was happy. The staff, from the moment we arrived, all the different people we encountered, helped make our stay unforgettable. It is so important to me to have great customer service... More
