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.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary here. Total relaxation. Although we had traveled extensively we had never done an all inclusive, thought it might be too canned. For this trip it was perfect. Although there was substantial construction at the resort, our Club level room in Kensington was quiet. Food was average, but many choices were available. We especially enjoyed Royal... More

We spent a week in paradise...sorry Sandals Royal Caribbean... from September 14-21, 2014. We booked through Sandals into a 1 Bedroom Swim Up Butler Honeymoon Suite. We were there for our 10th wedding anniversary. We booked this resort due to TripAdvisor reviews as well as a co-worker who stayed in the same room level about 6 months prior. Favorite Restaurant:...

We visited Sandals Royal Caribbean for our honeymoon in late September. The resort is just 20 minutes from the airport and the overall property is smaller than some of the other Sandals in Jamaica which we liked. The aesthetic were luxe Caribbean with tasteful floral accents in shades of teal, blues and greens complimented with dark wood. There is a... More

My husband loves Sandals for me they are just so-so. We went to a Sandals in the Bahamas for our honeymoon six years ago (May 2008) and then to Jamaica with another couple that we know (May 2014). The experience was very similar. We chose the Royal Caribbean because it was closer to the airport than some of the other... More
