On arrival we were invited to wait in the Sandals lounge,... here we could help ourselves to beer, soft drinks or tea & coffee. As this property is so close to the airport the transfer was brief. We were welcomed with big smiles, refreshing damp cloths and offered sparkling wine and comfortable seats while our check-in process was done. We...

We just returned from our third stay here and just want to congratulate the management and staff for the improvements that have been made since we were here last in 2009. We have never had any complaints about this resort, but they have definitely stepped up the quality of the food and the service here, especially at breakfast! We congratulate...

Where to start, besides being close to airport and in he flight path, you will block out he planes and they aren't going 24 hrs.The resort is quiet, well maintained and welcoming from the time you enter paradise and that rum punch with a cool damp lemon smelling towel to cool down . All the staff are great, friendly, smiling,...

Just returned from this resort. The staff absolutely make this resort. From Ricardo's omelette's to the entire Entertainmate crew. Storm, Richie Rich, Hollywood, Chico and Theodore keep you entertained all day, and night long. From activities on the beach to the incredible shows, they get you involved in a wide variety of activities, without being "pushy". They are all incredibly...

There are just not enough good things I can say about this resort and Sandals in general. I will try my best though. The activities, playmakers/entertainment staff, general staff, and amazing food make this a place you want to visit again and again. My husband and I had a 4-day weekend off from school, and this is exactly where we...

This trip was the best it could be by the finer staff at your facility. A few stand out as above and beyond expectations. Adrian Peterson was fantastic at his job and I now call him a friend. He even attended my nieces wedding on his own time. He is awesome. Valentie went over and above to make sure my...

We have visited many all inclusive resorts all over the world and this one is by far the worst we have ever encountered. In November we were in Mexico at an Excellence resort, and it was absolutely fantastic, but this experience at SRCR was at the other extreme. The staff were all willing and very friendly, but the lack of...

Stayed at Sandals Royal Caribbean for a week [Feb 18th-Feb 24th 2013] with my wife. This was our 2nd year in a row at the same resort. And it was better than ever! This resort is smaller than the Montego Bay Sandals. Montego Bay Sandals is accessible via the Free Shuttle that runs on the hour from Royal Caribbean Sandals,...
