Such a nice resort with very friendly staff.. We hired a driver the whole time who drove us around to all the sights. Would go back a sandals for sure! Catered to everything that was asked for. I'd recommend this resort and they also have first entertainment.

We had a great vacation at Sandals but it was not worth the money that we spent. Let may start by saying that my last 5 or so vacations prior to Sandals have been cruises. This was my first stay at an all inclusive. I have loved the cruises. I love the main dining room food, the entertainment on the... More

This was our second visit to this resort in the past year so it should be obvious that we really enjoyed what was on offer. We had Butler service for both visits and highly recommend this option. The resort is one of the smaller Sandals properties we have visited and that suited us just fine. It is also one of... More

FACT - The Sandals advertising and brochures are AMAZING. The reality for us was very different. We expected,from the brochures, to experience a luxurious romantic and tranquil holiday in the beautiful surroundings of Jamaica. Not what we got at all! GOOD POINTS. nice welcome and efficient transfer; friendly welcome, cool drink and towel upon arrival; politely shown to our room... More

Great trip! Lovely hotel, had to change rooms after a few days for a better and pool view but sorted with the help of the reception guys. Great food choice, plenty of eating options and drink a plenty. Bit surprised there was no alcohol in the fridge in the room. The Jamaicans are extremely grateful for the visitors and wealth...

We booked this trip 4 days prior to leaving and took a gamble with an expedia package. All turned out fantastic. Our booking didn't go through to Sandals at first, but they gave us a lovely room regardless and took care of the situation seamlessly. The resort is very well kept, a manageable size for me, beautifully decorated and the... More

Sandals Royal Caribbean, Montego Bay, Jamaica. 13-23 Jan 2015 We just stayed at the Royal Caribbean for the first time. We have stayed at 3 other sandals properties during 4 other visits to Jamaica, St Lucia and Great Exuma, Bahamas. As such, we really do have something to compare it too. Our best experiences with Sandals were on our first... More

We just got back from a wonderful vacation at Sandals Royal Caribbean. The customer service there is the best! Kitanya in group sales was so helpful in coordinating our group events for 15 of us, she went above and beyond when we had changes and was able to accommodate us. Great big thanks to her!

October 25 to Nov 4th, 2014 We did a split stay, first at Sandals Negril and then on to the Sandals Royal Caribbean on October 31 thru November 4th. We had a wonderful time, as we always do. Although we had a very good time in Negril, we could not wait to transfer to the Royal. The team at the... More
