We had a well-needed, relaxing stay from February 5 - 12, 2019. Our butlers, Anthony and Damian were attentive and informative. The resort is immaculate, the food superb and the amenities were endless. We highly recommend.

This was our 4th Sandals trip and we were again reminded why we keep coming back! Our butler team, Nigy and Nicole, did an outstanding job of making sure our every need was met and surprised us throughout our week with small gestures that added to our experience. Thank you! We

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We just returned from Royal Caribbean Resort. This was our 1st time having a butler service - Nigy and Nichole were so wonderful ! They took such good care of us, delighting us with beach side drinks and snacks that we did not even know we wanted. The staff is just so great,

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
This was huge expensive letdown. 1) We paid for a butler level room to get the private airport transfer. This didn't happen as there was rain - but we also weren't met off the plane like we were also told to get through customs quickly. No apologies, refunds/credits or anything

Response from Nadel B, Online Review Coordinator at Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort and Private Island
Responded today
Hello Kelly and thank you for your review of Sandals Royal Caribbean. It is disheartening to read of your sentiments regarding your recent stay with us, as that is certainly not the experience we wish for our guests to have. It is quite surprising to learn of the services that may not have been received, as it is certainly not indicative of the norm. However we sincerely apologize if this was your experience. Our Butler services are intended to add that extra touch to the service we have become known for and usually this is achieved. It is indeed regrettable that your experience in this area was not as expected and we apologize. We would like to assure you that training is an integral part of our operations, especially for our butlers who provide a specialized service. We will meet with our staff and remind them of the level of professionalism, efficiency, friendliness and hospitality we expect to be portrayed to our valued guests at all times and will take the necessary corrective measures to minimize any disappointments. We have taken note of your concerns and will share them with the relative departments, as we are dedicated to improving in any way that we can. We also encourage you to contact our Customer Care team at customersupport@sandals.com, should you have any lingering concerns. We only hope to be granted an opportunity to host you again in the future at any one of our Sandals Resorts for a vacation that is more in line with your expectations.

I am sorry I didn’t stay in an OTW bungalow. Our club level room had a regular carafe coffee pot and I would guess the bungalows do too but it’s just a guess. I’d call the resort and ask.

The beach at Royal is not a long walking beach. There is a main beach area that has lots of loungers and 2-3 smaller cove's beaches all divided by piers. The sand is soft and quite a bit of shade under trees. It is a private beach so only guests staying at a Sandals in Montego Bay Area will be there. (Guests from Sandals Inn may come over for the day since the only beach they have is across the street from their hotel and a public beach). We have never felt crowded at all and enjoy going to the private island as it is quieter than the main resort. You can always take the free shuttle to Sandals Montego Bay for the day if a longer beach is what you like better.

"We were in room 5207 - ocean view. The bathroom is small but understand the building will be renovated after this winter season."
"Don't book at Kensington for sure. "
"make sure to book a room that is at least club level"
"We did a beachfront butler room, loved it and would do it again. It came with 24 hour room service which worked well for us."
