We had the most beautiful time at Sandals. They spoiled us rotten and we didn't even have the Butler service ! Everybody treated us as if we were the only ones there. We are planning another trip soon. Hope to stay at the same place. The only bad thing that happened, we had to leave.

I say "almost" because if you're adventurous and looking for some privacy outside-you won't find it. The swim up suites? Hell no. You have the public walking by on the sidewalk all the time and it's only divided by a thin veil of vegetation and gorgeous flowers. AND you get to share your pool with your neighbors! They look absolutely... More

This was our second trip to SRC and from the moment we arrived so many of the Staff came to speak to us and to welcome us back it was amazing. As second timers we understood how things worked and we had booked a similar room, with Butler Service again which makes everything so easy. We also decided to splash... More

Overall had a good time. Details: 1) Reservations: booked hotel and airfare through their website 6 months in advance of our travel date. No glitches, flight times changed several times in that 6 months and we were emailed whenever this happened. 2) Airport transfers: Big signs and workers present right outside customs at the Sandals lounge in Montego Bay, couldn't...

We had an amazing time!! We just returned from staying at the Royal Caribbean for 4 nights and it was fantastic. We had a room in the Balmora building and it was perfect! Our room overlooked the beach and the pool. We were very close to the beach and had our chairs reserved daily by our wonderful butlers Adia and... More

Excellent Resort with a beautiful structure. Very cozy and romantic environment served by excellent restaurants. This is a perfect resort for scuba divers with an incredible infrastructure for an everyday dive, caribbean ocean is fantastic! The private island is a plus! The only bad thing that happened was a stolen backpack so be careful with your gears... Anyway I would... More

We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and wanted to also renew our vows. Since we had taken previous family trips to Beaches in Negril and had an amazing experience each time, we knew that a Sandals Resort in Jamaica would be our destination. From the time we stepped into the Sandals Club waiting area at MBJ it was like... More

I have to say that I booked my trip thru a Travel Agent -- this is the way to go--Everything that I expected was done---My Butler suite was perfect - My Butlers Ian and Orlando took care of every need/want/wish that we had, they made sure that they checked every day about our dinner plans which they then escorted us...

We selected Sandals Montego Bay for our 5 year anniversary celebration – since this was a milestone, we opted for the Club Level Beach Walkout Honeymoon Suite – pricing just below a Butler Suite. Due to the premium pricing our expectations were elevated and anticipation was high – but we were somewhat disappointed & let down by management there. Grab... More

On a scale of 1 to 10 this place is a 15. Most of all, it is about the people. There are so many reasons to return to this fabulous resort, beautiful accommodations, superb food and outstanding customer service. Special thanks to Dezreen, Danaree, Anna Kaye, (aka: Miss Bubbles), OShane, Chris, Dahlia, Claudiana, Hollywood, Andre, Gregory, Levor, Fiona, Traci Ann,... More
