My husband and I recently returned from a fabulous vacation at Sandals Royal Carribean, Montego Bay, Jamaica. We celebrated our 31 year Wedding Anniversary. The resort is immaculate, the smiling and friendly staff were the best! We usually cruise for our vacations but will cruise no more! We cannot wait to return to this magical tropical paradise next year. Do... More

My wife and I went here to celebrate our 12 year wedding anniversary. We stayed in Kensington Cove Honeymoon Beachfront Club Level Room - let me start by saying, we didn't want for anything. The day we got there, we heard the planes overhead: however, so not to let this detract you from staying there; by the time the 2nd... More

I booked my vacation and airfare through sandals.com and received confirmation email of my flights. When my wife and I traveled to the airport to catch our plane it came to our surprise we were not on the flight. There was some kind of issue with booking and we were not scheduled until the next day. I contacted customer service... More

Had a great 6 night stay at the SRC from 8/29 to 9/4. The staff really is one of the best assets. Andre & Rohan in the pub were awesome, Verna, Courtney & Ashelle also do a great job! Oh and I can't forget Big Bird...he's non-stop entertainment in his own way. We had a Club Level room and even... More

Late review of the hotel but here it is. The hotel is old when compared to the newer resorts in Jamaica. Although it is old it is a great place for a short vacation. We spent a 4 nights at the hotel for a long weekend before Xmas and it was the perfect relaxing vacation. If you are expecting a... More

The food here is fantastic and there is something for everyone, very colouful with lots of variety. Plus the normal branded drinks and cocktails. The only downside is that the... More

Came here for our honeymoon and it was awesome. We were able to earn or Diving License while there and that alone was worth the trip. We got the Butler Service for our Suite (The Suite was amazing with a fully stocked bar) but the Butler Service didn't really add any value to us. (We wish we hadn't spent the... More

Apologize in advance for the long review =). We just returned back on Friday from a week long stay at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort. The resort staff were AMAZING.

Fantastic resort in Montego bay. Had a few issues initially, we booked a beach front walk out room and were 1 floor up, we were told we had been "upgraded" but we weren't so sure so we asked for our original room which we got with no hassle and it was amazing. Literally step out the door and you're on... More
