The Honeymoon was magical... but not because of Sandals. I was not pleased with Sandals service, food, rooms, beaches, prices. I will say that the value you are getting is decent, but what you are getting is nothing to get excited over....

We stayed at Sandals Jan. 12-19 with 2 other couples. Our friends arrived later that night. We originally booked a suite (bedroom/ living room) on the Manor side and paid for an upgrade initially. When we arrived we were booked on the Riviera side on the top floor- 1 room with bar, (no living room), but had a concierge service... More

My husband and I had an amazing trip. I loved just about everything on our trip except for the lack of tasty desserts at the restaurants. After starving myself for the wedding, planning the wedding and having one of the most stressful days of my life, all I wanted was some good comforting chocolate and m man. There was a... More

This is the first time i have felt compelled to write a negative review. This resort was below my expectations for a all "4-5 star" all-inclusive resort for a few reasons: 1) Major renovation taking place (we were told was completed before booking) next to beach areas and around property. 2) Service at restaurants and lounges is not a priority......

Great resort, preferred the Manor side where most rooms are villas. Staff is 5 star while the resort in totality is probably 4 star at times. Very large with lots to do, which does require their included transport, which most of the time is satisfactory. We did experience some delays. Restaurants are fantastic, Valentino's is the best but always a... More

My husband and I went to this resort for our honeymoon. We stayed in a villa with Butler Service from January 8-15. The room was dated, unclean and needed a major facelift. The food at most restaurants was great. Some of the waiters/bartenders were slow and unfriendly. The beach side of the resort was noisy (construction) and the beach was... More

Every effort is used to ensure you experience a a wonderful vacation. The staff are super friendly and most importantly, extremely efficient. The atmosphere is absolutely exquisite. The grounds are perfect for photography and nature abounds. Just the very best vacation my husband and I have ever had.

Travellers Beware! This resort has 2 resorts in 1. The lower resort, the Riviera is going through at 30 million dollar renovation. The pier is ripped apart, the main pool is under construction as well as the ampitheatre. Skill saws and Jackhammers were what we heard when trying to relax at the beach. The main manager of Valentinos told us... More
