This resort is gorgeous! We had an amazing ocean view that was perfect to wake up to each morning. The staff is so friendly & fun; they truly make the resort! Absolutely everything is included (even tips) & my husband & I loved the water sports. The jerk chicken is to die for! We had such a wonderful time here... More

Trip Food, comfort, staff, and amenities were all a cut above any other Caribbean resorts we have visited. This is our second visit to a Sandals resort and were not disappointed. The Welcome Home card on the room door handle was a nice touch. We visited Halcyon in St. Lucia last year in January and Royal Caribbean this year in... More

We've been to all 3 Beaches Resorts and to the one in Negril twice; this was our first experience with the couples only side of the business and with this visit we achieved "silver sandals" status. The majority of the staff here could afford to smile a whole lot more; it appeared most of them didn't want to be there... More

So this was my favorite Sandals but this time was a bit disappointed.

This is a long review, but I can’t sum up this place in a few lines. What a holiday we had here! It’s a smaller and more personal Sandals Resort which was really to our liking as was the short transfer time from the airport. The bus (which incidentally could do with a refurbishment – it was very shabby and... More

My husband and I were celebrating our first wedding anniversary, our first time to Jamaica, and our second visit to a Sandal's resort. From the moment we landed at the Montego Bay Airport, we were taken care of and pampered. When we entered the resort, we were ushered into the Club Sandals by Kirkland and Dezreen ( I really hope...

We ended our perfect honeymoon at the royal Caribbean in Montego bay and was it worth it??? oh YES! From the minute the transfer bus dropped us off, we were greeted by our butler who took our luggage to our room and showed us around the whole complex. We were dazed and couldn't wait to get our things down and... More

We booked this trip for our 15 year anniversary, 3 nights, through Dream Makers Vacation Services. Michael McHugh and his co-workers are great to work with and I cannot recommend them enough. We traveled in late October. Overall, this Sandals property is small and intimate. Much unlike Sandals Montego Bay which is very spread out. We are in the 35-45... More
