I had read a few negative reviews about Sandals RC and I just have to wonder where the heck these people actually stayed because our trip/stay was phenomenal. Suave was hysterical and made things fun! Danielle and Bubbles were so sweet. Tracey Ann came by every day to check on us - she was such a good person. The people... More

We booked a Kensington Honeymoon Suite, and the brochure showed a beautiful room with a beachfront balcony. Upon check in, the room was far below the standard we were expecting to say the least and the balcony was the size of a postage stamp. It would have been very difficult to have both of us sitting comfortably together. The promised... More

This was my first visit to Jamaica and I'm glad I only stayed at this resort for 3 days. The resort is beautiful, pools are nice and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. They really go out of their way to try to make their guests comfortable. The part of the visit I wasn't impressed with was the resort... More

What a fantastic holiday ! We have just returned from this resort and can't praise it highly enough.We have travelled to lots of places in the world including 20years around the Caribbean but this ranks with one of our best. We chose the Club option and on arrival at the airport were invited into the Sandals lounge for drinks while... More

Overall, we had a very good time, as expected. We checked in on Sunday, August 16th for our seventh stay at SRC in the last 15 years, having tried Sandals Whitehouse once and Sandals Royal Bahamian once. SRC is favored by us for Montego Bay's easy accessibility from the East Coast, and SRC being only a 15 minute trip from... More

I can;t think any other word to describe our honeymoon by as amazing, we stayed for 7 nights and the resort was beautiful. However it was the staff that really made the trip you really feel like you at home since everyone knows your name. The entertainment staff has become friends forever and we can;t wait to see them again.... More

I can NOT say enough about SRC. This was our 2nd time at the Royal. It was amazing how employees remembered us from 2 years ago.. BUT I will say Suave made our trip a lot more enjoyable. The interaction with everyone to join in events made it a lot of fun.. Last time we really never got involved with... More

We spent a week in Montego Bay at the Sandals Royal Caribbean and had such a wonderful time! The resort is so clean and the staff is amazing! They are so engaging and the friendliest people on earth! The food presentation was top notch and the food was wonderful! Sauve was the best entertainment director ever! (And he can sing!)... More

We have recently returned from an amazing week in Jamaica. We stayed in a swim up room at the Royal Caribbean Sandals Resort. At first we were very nervous about having butlers however Our butlers Keneisha and Andre ensured we felt like family the minute we met them. Keneisha's attention to detail and thoughfulness blew us away daily. My wife... More

We came here for our honeymoon 8/12 to 8/19, we had a blast. This was the first time my husband and I have ever been outside of the country and they left a great first impression. The workers there made you feel very welcome and would do what was needed to accommodate you. They had different activities each night that... More
