We were at this resort for a week in January 2016. Initially we weren't sure if we were going to like it as it is very small but it ended up being one of the best resorts we've been to. The food and entertainment were great. But what stands out most about this resort is the staff! Thanks to Omar,... More

This resort has a lot of nice "micro-environments" for lack of a better description. we like that there were different areas to relax and enjoy without 2000 people trying to use the same area as you find in some of the large resorts. Our room in the Balmoral building was very nice but the bed was a bit too hard... More

I cannot say enough great things about this resort. It was impeccably maintained, the food was great, the staff phenomenal, and the weather was just perfect. The beach is very small, but I never felt crowded on it. The private island is the true gem of this resort. Rent a cabana for the day on the island, and it will... More

I visited this resort January 2016 with a group of friends and we had an awesome trip. The resort was beautiful and we really enjoyed the private island. All the activities were so enjoyable. I enjoyed so much of this trip and would definitely return. The food was okay - not too exciting. The most delicious item I had was... More

From start to finish this was an amazing trip! The resort was aesthetically stunning, the food was amazing and the staff was off the charts terrific! The beach(i will say, it is small) was maintained perfectly. They were constantly raking to make sure this was so. The room was very basic, but very clean and for the amount of time... More

We have been to a variety of resorts here in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and Negril (Couples and Riu are great) We have always been pleased with the entire Jamaican experience. This trip started out great... More

We decided to take a 20th anniversary trip somewhere special, since we never had a "real" honeymoon and with busy lives and 3 kids we've never had the chance to do so. Our friends had been to other Sandals resorts and loved them, and their travel agent recommended SRC to us. He said that every Sandals has its own style,... More

My husband and I stayed here recently for a week. Our original travel plans were disrupted due to the recent blizzard on the east coast. The staff at Sandals spent over an hour on the phone with us rescheduling our airlines and hotel. The entire hour, the staff person was very pleasant, patient and helpful. When we finally arrived, the... More
