“A Vacation in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

After landing and being greeted by MOBAY, and being taken to customs and immigration, we were escorted to the Sandals lounge to await our ride to the resort. After a five minute wait, the bus loaded us up and drove us to the resort - less than 15 minutes away. The sun was shining and weather was perfect! The Guest Services Manager welcomed us, and saw that we were brought a glass of champagne to celebrate our arrival. The room was on the beachfront, and perfect! After unpacking and changing, we met up with friends for cocktails and then dinner. There was entertainment nightly, and we ate delicious meals at a different restaurant each night. The staff is very friendly and can't do enough for you! We met lovely couples, and had a wonderful stay. So wonderful that we have signed up for next year! Join us!!!

Room Tip: Deluxe beachfront is our favorite choice. Balmoral and Kensington buildings are excellent selection...

We stayed march 15-19 at sandals royal Caribbean. It was a dream vacation and everything about it was perfect. Props to Albert & Nikola at the pool bar for keeping our drinks full & to Tremaine @ watersports & our Butler Duane on the island when we rented the cabana. We will definitely return next year. It truly was the best vacation I have ever had and can't say anything bad about it!

We absolutely loved our first experience at Sandals Royal Caribbean & will definitely consider any of the other Sandals locations (but this one was awesome!) for future vacations. The Sandals company has thought of everything. There is something for everyone, the service is outstanding, and everyone is so friendly. Also, one thing I was surprised by was the food. The food is superb. We tried many of the restaurants (including those at the Montego Bay resort) & never had a bad meal. For lunch, don't forget about the island. The food over there at lunch is great too, which was good since we probably spent most of our day time over at the island (quieter & better sun). For a relaxing, care-free, fun honeymoon, this resort is PERFECT!

This was our 3rd time visiting this property and not our last.We arrived Feb.23/2013 and stayed for 7 wonderful days. Everything was perfect. So many staff members remembered our names and treated us like part of their family. THOMPSON who greeted us and handled our luggage and took care of the check-in was great. Next we woke in the morning to see the immaculate grounds kept so well by MICHAEL, WINSTON and ADRIAN. These guys gave us a private tour and explained some of the flowers and plants. We woke to fresh flowers on our patio daily. Thanks MICHAEL. The food and service at this resort exceeded our expectations.Thanks to ANDRE and DWIGHT on the private island who went over the top to make our evening dinner special. LATOYA at the Regency always greeted us with a smile and made sure we were comfortable any time of the day. SHEMESHIA knew what we needed before we sat down. She makes a great cappuccino .Thanks to RICHARD who made great omelets but even a better smile. We loved going to Crickateers pub to enjoy an evening of great food and being entertained by KEVIN (BIG BIRD). A special thanks to SIMONE, TREMAINE and SUDION for the amazing surprise for our 35th wedding anniversary. Aside from their best wishes, SUDION sang a love song for us on the beach. Thank-you SUDION.She also went out of her way to bring us young coconuts from home for us to try. RICHIE, HOLLYWOOD, CHICO and THEO kept my husband busy with beach volleyball. The beach is small, beautiful and groomed daily. Water is calm and clear. KAREEM the photographer captured many photos of us at the beach., without being pushy or aggressive. He is a nice gentleman who engaged us in much appreciated pleasant conversation.Another great vacation with our extended family from Sandals. A special thanks to TREMAINE who has become our Jamaican son.He looked for us daily and made sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the private heart to heart conversations that connected us to TREMAINE and the Sandals family.

My husband and I just returned from what we considered the ideal honeymoon experience at Sandals Royal Caribbean. Before we arrived, we were upgraded to a Concierge ocean view room in the Kensington building. Some people mention this building is "out of the way" but the resort is small and quaint so nothing seems too far out, and we actually preferred the location as it had its own pool and private beach. The area around this building was much quieter and gave a nice break from the action and fun in the center of the resort. All week long we were pampered by the wonderful, friendly and professional staff at Sandals. Adrian of Mariner's Bar really took care of us and always had our drinks re-filled before we even asked! Theodore made all on-site activities a blast, and Shanique was our own personal concierge who made sure we were always being taken care of and treated like true royalty. We cannot say enough good things about our experience, and actually already booked another Sandals vacation in Jamaica for our 1 year anniversary! If you are looking for a smaller resort with grand amenities, picture perfect views and an overall pampering experience this is the place for you!

Room Tip: Kensington building is more updated- rooms are nicer from what we could tell, and the location of th...

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The resort is great, we made some new friends and the staff made it one of our best vacations. Special thanks to Theodore Sheckleford and Tobi Storm for making us feel like family and the great entertainment staff for making us decide to book another Sandals vacation.
