We stayed in a Club Level room in the Kensington Cove area of the resort from 26th November - until 7th December, we stayed there last year too. Great location, very quiet. The rooms could do with a bit of an update though, getting a bit tired!! The view from our room 4316 was amazing. We were disappointed with some... More

We were at the SRC for 7 nights December 6th- 13th. We have a Caribbean Premium Room. We loved the entire week! - Arrival: Within 25 minutes of getting through customs we were loaded onto the bus to go to the resort. It was a very short ride. Did not enjoy one of the bus drivers drink to sell us... More

We can not compliment the service and food enough. The French restaurant and Jamaican bamboo shack had some of the most amazing food! Our housekeeper Lily was so, so sweet, and our bartender took care of us daily. We loved our experience here! We had a wonderful honeymoon!

It was my best friends wedding AT THIS PLACE I RECOMMENDED. The staff last year was absolutely amazing, they made my trip... More

This was our 2nd trip to SRC, our 1st experience with a butler. The trip from the airport to the resort is short and sweet. Arrival- we were greeted with a wet towel and a pleasant smile and quickly ushered into the concierge lounge. There we were supplied with a drink of choice. Our flight arrived prior to the 3o'clock... More

We cannot say enough good things about the staff! Nicola and Odane at the beach bar, were the utmost attentive individuals! Rayo at the front desk was hysterical and always made sure we had what we needed. Shadean was the most patient photographer and dealt the our large group like a pro. The girls at the gift shop, Sidoney and... More

I found the staff to be warm, caring and fun and they made a magical trip with my wife and our friends even better. The... More
