4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Here we are, in lovely Jamaica. I'm writing a review now because I am feeling quite cross with the manager (Dwight) who listened to me complain about being put in a room right by the entertainment when we specifically asked for a quieter area as I'm recovering from cancer. We said we'd happily accept being moved to a lesser room... More

This was our second stay and we enjoyed it just as much! We splurged for a club level room this time and it was worth it. The hotel staff is extremely courteous. We especially enjoyed mariner's and the great service we received from Adrian and Tracy-Ann.

We just got back yesterday from an amazing vacation. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Very beautiful grounds and beach. A la carte food was great, buffets were standard. Drink selection was fantastic, as were the activities especially water sports. The island was so beautiful.

Sandals Royal Caribbean is a good all inclusive resort, but not a great one. The staff, food, and beach really save this resort from being mediocre. I will list out the pro's / con's below, but our major issue was Sandals Booking upselling us an upgraded penthouse "Oceanview" room, but the room was at the back of the resort and... More

Let me start by saying the guest at this resort are as friendly as the staff. I felt like I was coming home. The manager met us on check in and welcomed us. The resort was convenient to the airport and the city.The food was great and the drinks were plentiful. I really appreciate Brett and Mr. James, I believe... More

The only negative aspect of our vacation was the construction that was taking place during our visit. And the mass amount of seaweed that was overtaking the beach, but they had grounds keepers doing their best in keeping it clean. My room had the most amazing view of the Caribbean sea from my balcony room. the grounds are immaculate and... More

I do not have enough words to describe this paradise. This is our second visit. The first time was just my husband and I. The second visit was with my sister and brother in law. Both times we have attended, there has been construction going on. Yeah is was a little noisy but to watch the progress and development of... More

The only negative aspect of our second trip to a Sandals property was the ongoing construction noise near our room. That nuisance aside, the vacation was still great. Granted, gourmet food, a returning guest dinner, and the club level experience certainly added to the stay. Amenities notwithstanding, the real difference maker is the staff. The workers at a Sandals resort... More

Recently returned from SRC and loved it! The only reason it's not getting a 5* rating is for the room. Keep in mind, it was just fine, and actually we were upgraded and had a perfect full view of the caribbean sea! We were sitting right on the beachfront. You must keep in mind that the hotel is old, and... More

We stayed in a butler suite and our butlers (Shirley Ann & Hughell) provided us with the most amazing butler service I've ever had. While we did not have a long time at the resort (3 nights) they were the best 3 nights we've ever had in Montego Bay. The resort is a short 10 min trip from the airport.... More
