We stayed here for our Honeymoon in May 2015. We could not have dreamed for anything more perfect for our stay. Absolutely faultless. The staff couldn't do enough for us and both food and drinks were simply amazing! Cocktails made to order any time of day; Al la carte menu (no rubbish buffets!)We never left the resort as there was... More

We stayed at SRC for our Honeymoon from 7/20/15-7/27/15 and we had a wonderful experience. The resort is really beautiful and the views are incredible! We were also super happy with the view from our room in the Kensington, as it overlooked a quiet pool, hot tub and the beach. Also, the area that the Kensington is located is extremely... More

My husband and I came to SRC for our honeymoon and had an absolutely amazing time. The food: We literally ate 6 meals a day. Our favorite restaurant was Eleanor’s Caribbean Cuisine. Their bread was so good, I asked them to wrap some up for me on the last night so I could have it again. The Thai was also... More

We stayed at SRC for a quick getaway from July 20-24th. Although we had never been to SRC, we are familiar with Sandals brand, having stayed at Beaches Negril, Beaches Sandy Bay, Sandals La Toc, Sandals Whitehouse, and Sandals Ochi. Previous Sandals/Beaches trips have been nearly flawless. Although we really enjoyed our trip, there was a hiccup or two. Be... More

I recently got married @ Sandals, Montego Bay 7/12/15. We stayed 7 days. The entire staff was amazing. We booked the luxury level room but we didn't know it doesn't offer room service, or mini bar. Only water, sodas, and juices. We met the room manager and she up graded us to a beachfront royal butler villa suite for our... More

We went to this resort at the end of October 2014 and loved it ! We booked the swim up honeymoon suite with butler. The room was gorgeous and our bulters were helpful and kind. However, it was so noisy, we couldn't enjoy our private pool. The construction of a new building next door went on all day, every day... More

Stayed here for 10 nights, and loved every second. We booked the holiday on a Tuesday and flew out the following Sunday, so we got a great deal. We got the rooms with the semi private pool, and was sooo good. We had our own sun loungers outside our room, and staff would come around and ask if you wanted... More
