4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went for an anniversary trip. Being on the West coast, we usually go to Hawaii. In recent years, we've been rained on about 1/3 of the time in Hawaii so we looked for a warm beach location in January. We don't like Mexico so the Caribbean seemed a good choice. The Sandals commercials seemed appealing & with research chose the... More

This was our second stay at SRC within the last year. Resort is still great and the staff....outstanding! Butlers this time around. Thanks Ian and Dennis, you were awesome. Went to Sandals Montego Bay a couple of times for dinner. The Italian restaurant is worth checking out. Sesno took good care of us. A special thanks to the bartenders at... More

Sandals Royal Caribbean is convenient to the Montego Bay airport so the trip to and from the resort is quick unlike many of the other all inclusives in Jamaica. The accommodations are comfortable and well kept. The food is great with several restaurants available including those at a neighboring Sandals. The service is outstanding. When we stay at Royal Caribbean... More

We stayed at the Montego Bay but visited all three resorts. When originally looking we found it difficult to work out which was the best for us so here is my opinion: Montego Bay vs Royal Caribbean vs Carlyle Of course I am biased having chosen Montego Bay for our holiday. Montego Bay has 240 rooms and Carlisle 50 with... More

From the moment you arrive you will enjoy this resort. On a par with Halcyon Bay, St Lucia, genuinely friendly whilst maintaining professionalism. You can get involved or just flop around as you wish or dip in and out. There are transfers to the other Sandals resorts but you may choose just to enjoy this site. When did you last... More

The weather was not very good but the service was great while we were there. We were near the construction of new rooms but never heard any sounds of a construction crew. All were very friendly and helped with anything we needed. We hope to go back soon.

Visited this Sandals property for the first time. A little smaller than previous properties, but much easier to access all the facilities. Stayed in one of the swim up suites on the Crystal Lagoon and essentially had the pool to ourselves. Our room was butler level and Tamara and Andre were wonderful and tended to our every request. They helped... More

We bought a day pass for this resort, which cost $85. This gave us use of pretty much all the beaches, food, and activities. We went to the island and spent most of our day on the beach. Free drinks at the bar were yummy! The beach was clean and well kept, and the water was very nice. They have... More

My husbands' parents took all of their children and their spouses to Sandals Royal Caribbean for a week. We enjoyed the ease with which we could kayak, paddle board, snorkel and swim. The food was good and the drinks were plentiful. We learned quickly to get reservations for restaurants early, and our favorites were the Thai restaurant on the island... More

We stayed at the Royal in the beginning of November 2014 at the Royal Sanctuary Grand Luxe level. We had a very nice room, it was near the construction but did not bother us. Like most people we do not spend much time in the room during the day when work was being done. This was our ninth visit to... More
