We were blown away day after day on our honeymoon. Staff was extremely friendly., ocean was crystal clear, food was gourmet, drinks were delicious and I am not a drinker! Best 5 days of our lives. A dream come true. Everyone needs to stay here at least once in their life. So worth every penny!!!!

My wife and I visited here in February of 2010. I think I read about a 1000 reviews before we went, most good but the negative one had me worried a little. My wife kept telling me to quit reading them because we would have a great time. She was right. The service from Sandals that you get from the... More

Another fun and relaxing trip at our 3rd Sandals Resort. Sarah from Beach Bum Vacations told us it would be smaller, quiet and intimate. She was right. Good food, with rest and relaxation, with a couple of great Butlers. Utilized a couple restaurants at the larger Sandals Montego Bay Resort as well, only 5 - 7 minutes away. The Catamaran... More

We absolutely loved it here. Accommodations were amazing, the view from our room was in point, the service was spectacular and the Jamaican people are no less than amazing. Never bored, food was fantastic. I do have to say for drinks go with a bar tender specialty drink, they each have their own concoction and those are better than a... More

We recently travelled for the 1st time to Jamaica-not an island we had ever considered due to its sometimes bad reviews! This trip certainly changed out minds-we loved it! As soon as we were greater by the sandals rep at the airport we were looked after fantastically. Nothing is too much trouble. The island was special and the Thai restaurant... More

My wife and I just got back from the most amazing trip we have ever taken. We were just married at the SRC and everything was absolutely perfect. The resort was absolutely gorgeous and extremely well maintained. The staff and crew of the resort were the best I've ever encountered. Our wedding took place at one of the gazebo's, and... More

My wife and I just returned from a week at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort. The resort is in great shape with a new building going up that will expand the upper end rooms. We had opted for the beach view and were given the 2nd floor end room in the Sandringham Building. Great view. The staff was all great... More

This is a delayed review from last year. Me and my husband went to this Sandals for our honeymoon. It was recommended by our travel agent actually... We are both returning guests to Sandals, so we don't have to say much about Sandals, it is just absolutely great. First of all, we are not sure if the hotel knows that... More

Firstly, we need to say that we hate complaining and we are sorry that we have to write this review. But we know that there are a lot of couples hesitant about Sandals wedding photography and videography, so we want to help. Our overall experience with Sandals Royal Caribbean is not too bad and we really like how wedding pictures... More

My husband went to Jamaica for the 1st time in June for our 1 year anniversary. From the time we land at the airport to the time we left to head home, everything was AMAZING! The staff truly makes you feel like you're extremely important. They are all committed to knowing you by name! Queenside, Kermit, Chico, Roger, and a... More
