I would return in a heartbeat. I was very pleased. Food was great. Drinks were great. We took advantage of the free watersports, snorkeling, and glass bottom boat. Water was crystal clear. All staff were friendly. Lots of activities and excursions were available. I had no complaints. We were given a free upgrade just because it was raining on arrival....

I just wanted to share the wonderful experience my wife and I had at Sandals Royal (Montego Bay). My research work requires that I meet in Jamaica often (we are setting up an HIV research lab there).

We stayed at SRC for our honeymoon from 05/07-05/13. It was the best honeymoon we could have asked for. We didn't have to do anything except relax and enjoy each other.
