The most relaxing vacation I've ever enjoyed! The resort itself is absolutely beautiful. The highlight here is the people who work at the resort. Juliene, Ricardo, Joanna, Dane and Nateisha from the entertainment department helped create a fun and light atmosphere. You can't help but want to join in and partake of all the activities they offer. Deon is the... More

My husband and I got married at Beaches Sandy Bay and went to RC for our honeymoon. To start off my husband and I are very laid back and low maintenance people. I read a lot of great reviews as well as bad reviews. I have to say that we have nothing bad to say. We had a concierge level... More

When my wife and I first arrived at the airport, we were conveniently found the sandals representatives. Then we received a mercedes instead of a shuttle bus and we looked at each other with astonishment. We checked in that after a short tour, our bulter faces us and says" Oh Yea! I forgot to mention that you have been upgraded... More

This was my first trip to a Sandals and my first time visiting a tropical island. I had a great time, but you can't really go wrong when you're in Jamaica. I travelled to SRC (Sandals Royal Caribbean) with my boyfriend and a group of eight others for a wedding. My boyfriend and I are in our mid-twenties and love... More

We were celebrating our honeymoon and arrived in Jamaica way later than we wanted due to the ineptness of Spirit Airlines. When we arrived at the hotel after 9pm, we could tell,even at night, that the hotel atmosphere was exactly what we needed. The hotel entertainer was singing Elvis songs and the whole thing was charming. Every day from then... More

We only stayed 3 nights as we have three little ones at home. We honeymooned at a Sandals 10 years ago - and were excited about trying another out. We love the all-inclusiveness that Sandals offers. Our travel agent recommended Royal Caribbean because there are direct flights to Montego Bay from Chicago. The resort was only 10 minutes away from... More

We love sandals resorts and were expecting to love this one, but it lacked in several areas. Our room was filled with bugs at night because it onened to the outside and the door had a 1 1/2 inch gap at the bottom. we shoved a towel under it but most nights we just sprayed off all over. our room...

Having previously read something like 38 pages of reviews for this hotel - which as you may notice appear to all sound great from our American cousins and not so great from my fellow Brits - I thought it only right that I should write my own and try as much as possible not to sound like another moaning Brit...
