This resort was spectacular. The rooms were so beautiful. The beds were so comfortable. Each morning they served you breakfast on your terrace. We always had a beutiful peacock visit us every morning. Absolute paradise. Great parties and buffets at night on the beach. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

My husband and I came here for our Birthday Celebration. It was amazing, from the simplicity of the airport, cool rags and champagne upon entering the resort. The concierge service was impeccable, always ready to serve. Let's go to Mariner Beach Grill where Sharmeisha, Andre, Roderick and Family gave us the Best service. All the service was great, I could... More

We had a fabulous time at this Sandals resort. I would recommend it to anyone. The beaches, rooms, entertainment, pool, drinks, and food were all top of the line. A couple times we took a short 5-min bus ride to Montego Bay to eat at their restaurants. They were delicious as well, but the resort as a whole does not... More
