We weren't going to reserve the cabana, just because we didn't really know how, and so we were going to leave it alone. Then Monique approached us and told us that she would take care of us and she told us what the experience would be like and so we said "SURE, let's do it!" And she made it all...

This was our first experience of a Sandals resort and we were not disappointed. We stayed for 2 weeks in a Honeymoon Butler Suite in the Buckingham block. We were on the first floor with a balcony which gives greater privacy as people walk past the patios on the ground floor. The room was lovely. An old fashioned setting but...

We stayed at Sandals Royal Carribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica for the week of Valentine's Day 2017. It was absolutely incredible!

It was at the...

This was our third visit to Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort. Sandals always delivers a superb experience. Their resorts are ultra-romantic, all-inclusive and highly halcyon. The Sandals staff is amazing. They make you feel like you are a VIP. This resort will pamper you. Everyone we encountered make us feel welcomed. The entertainment staff always worked to ingratiate and accommodate us...

We spent 10 days here. Room wasn't ready when we checked-in after two hours they upgraded us to ocean view room and checked with us daily to make sure everything was ok. Main pool small but not crowded. Needed to get there early (before 7) to get a chair. Food very good and plentiful. Staff was very cheerful, friendly and...

I had never been to a Sandals resort before. I had been warned about the food and staff on all inclusive resorts to be subpar, but this was not the case. The food was amazing. I never had a bad meal. The staff was amazing, especially the MC crew. Oshine "Energy" became a part of our wedding group after the...
