We visited Sandals Royal Caribbean for the 3rd time on July 18th, 2015. It was amazing as always. Our room was very nice-got the walkout room and concierge service. Highly recommend it. The staff will go a long way to make sure that the people who stay there are happy, well fed, entertained and taken care of. Criketers Pub is... More

Stayed here for 10 nights, and loved every second. We booked the holiday on a Tuesday and flew out the following Sunday, so we got a great deal. We got the rooms with the semi private pool, and was sooo good. We had our own sun loungers outside our room, and staff would come around and ask if you wanted... More

This was our first visit to a Sandals Resort and we were not disappointed as the hotel was first class. We stayed in a Crystal Lagoon Honeymoon 1Bdr Butler Suite. The room was excellent, comfy bed and seating area both with flat screen TV, large bathroom area with shower and jacuzzi bath, twin basins and a separate toilet. The large... More

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon here. We stayed from July 15th to the 22nd. We had a walk out swim up room with a butler. Our butlers Anthony and Dennis were fantastic. Anthony in particular went above and beyond answering geographical questions, sharing recipes with us. The staff in general were all incredibly friendly and... More

My wife and I took a trip to SRC from July 3-10. We've been to other Sandals resorts in Jamaica and the Bahamas and this ended up being one of our favorite locations. The resort is a bit smaller than the others (Whitehouse and Ochi are much larger), but the "quaintness" of the property is part of its appeal. Not... More

We stayed at Sandals Royal Caribbean in July 2015 for 12 days. It is an amazing property, very beautiful scenery, very good service! The location is very convenient, since it is a little bit further from the airport (compared to Sandals Montego Bay, where you can actually see planes landing across the road), but not too far, so that you...

We recently visited Jamaica for Son's destination wedding. The wedding was held at another resort, where we stayed for 7 days, but we couldn't come back home without making a return visit to Sandals Royal Caribbean, where we spent 3 nights. We had stayed at SRC on two previous occasions and absolutely love it there! As soon as we stepped... More

The Royal Caribbean far exceeded our expectations. The staff we're always friendly and courteous and were always ready to help in any way needed. The room was comfortable and clean. The view was nice, not exceptional, but still nice. The one possible negative, and this is not a big negative, there is really very little beach. This resort sits on... More
