As usual, we were greeted and treated like royalty, with cold towels and a welcome drink (champagne). Our check in was easy with the iPad and we were zipped to our room. Unfortunately it was in a place that faced the street, like we were outside the property and not well ventilated so we started coughing, and as we are... More

Sandals Royal Carribean was just as advertised! We stayed in the Kenningston Cove area and it was amazingly tranquil, private, and clean. The private island was very cool, with great lunch buffet and several very peaceful spots to relax and soak up the sun...even on a very windy day. The Island does have a "clothing optional" section (which is unfortunate,... More

The people in Jamaica were exceptional about making us feel welcome and helped us enjoy our time at the resort. The food was delicious, the entertainment was exciting, and the cleanliness of the resort was impeccable. Andre and my husband became friends and helped make the experience more personal rather than just another guest.

This resort was the perfect place for our honeymoon. It was so relaxing, the service, food, and drinks were wonderful, our room was beautiful, and the amenities were fantastic. We had such a great time with the water activities, hanging out by the pool, participating in activities, playing games, and going on a tour. The Flight of the White Witch... More

Our room was on the first floor and when we walked out to the patio, we were right on the beach. The staff was so helpful and accommodating, the... More

This was our second trip to Sandals Royal Caribbean. It's been quite a few years and there have been some changes since our last visit. Some for the good, some not so good. The most important thing that stands out to me are the dedicated employees that work so hard to make certain that we the guests leave Jamaica with... More
