“When can I go back?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Couldn't believe how beautiful this place was. Around every corner there was something new and exciting. Staff only happy to help and remembered your names, what you like and what you don't. Unbelievable!

our second stay at a sandals property, src, proved to be as pleasant as or our first stay at brc Nassau. The Jamaican culture/pulse is slightly different and once you get adjusted--positive vibrations !! the beauty of the property, lush tropical gardens and pristine beach-front is rivaled only by the warm and friendly staff. We took a day trip to ocho-rios to zip-line,bobsled and climb dunnes river falls,would recommend to everyone just try to avoid port days. Special thanks to our butler staff-Hector and Sherry-Ann...a day didn't pass that ms.verna didn't make us a delicious Jamaican smile !!! Tremaine and Cion from watersports crew helped to make our beach lounging all the more pleasant....Cleveland and the rest of the waitstaff are awesome (pretty lil girl with straw hat delivering drinks everywhere) the omelet guy was a great way to start the day....last but not least Dwight the nite mgr-Thanks for everything yall did too help my lovely wife and I enjoy our anniversary....we will soon come back !!

Room Tip: balmoral wing is great...beach-front !!

Just got back from Sandals Royal Caribbean in Jamaica and have nothing but great things to say about our week there.
First I need to say that the food and drinks are TOP NOTCH.
The room we had was great....stayed in the Caernarvon Building 1st floor right out to the pool from our private covered patio. Close to everything. If you want a ocean view room they are just 20ft from the water.
The off shore island has a pool, pool bar, hot tub and 2 beaches (one clothing optional - many nude).
The Red Lane Spa is GREAT and the couples massage worth it.
Staff? The best of all the all the 9 we have stayed at.
Fairweather it tops and when you go make a point of saying HI (from Bob) to Storm with the entertainment staff - she is a fun and interesting person that will help you enjoy your stay and always has a bright smile. GM Louis Grant has a great staff and does a remarkably wonderful job at all times.
If you have not stayed with Sandals yet this is the first place to try, If you have stayed with Sandals but not here yet don't wait - Stay at this jewel you will love it.
This resort is compact with lots to do and places to relax.

Room Tip: This resort has all levels of ages and guests. No room is far from anything but if you want a quiete...

My husband and I stayed here for the second time from 3/31/13 - 4/6/13. Our first trip was fantastic but our second trip was even better! We even brought friends this time! The food was delicious; as were the drinks (never empty!) The room was comfortable. I was given one of the best massages ever. I have to say though...the entertainment staff made our trip as they are entertaining. Giving a shout out to Richie Rich, Theo-dorable, Dora and Hollywood! The entire staff at the resort was friendly, attentive, and definitely make you feel at home. Their goodbye song on our departure bus brought a tear to my eye! Will return in the future!!

This was our second visit to RC and we had a wonderful time and it was still sad to leave after 10 days (did 7 last time and that was worse). The staff were fabulous, the food wonderful, the entertainment excellent, the weather perfect and our rooms were great. We had so much fun meeting new people and participating in the various activities on the resort. The Dun River falls is a must at it was so much fun and the zip lining and bob sledding was a blast. The restaurants are great especially the Le Jardinier, as the chef catered to my needs when I was sick and couldn't eat certain foods (and yes I took the recommended dukarol). We cannot wait to go back again!

Room Tip: If you don't get what you want, don't complain just go and ask to talk to the Reservations M...

The resort and all of the amenities were amazing. Beautiful water and view! Only complaint was with the service at the resort. Most of the servers were either lazy or rude. Their attitude and lack of service affected our enjoyment of the resort. Beware of the staff expecting the "under the table" tip. Once they get that then you get better service! Other then that it is a great couples friendly resort!
