We were blown away by how well we were treated at Sandals Royal Caribbean. From the moment we arrived from the airport to the moment we left we were treated like royalty. The rooms were very nice, the pools very clean, and the restaurants were wonderful. The beaches were very nice, we liked the island beach the best. We really...

After 3 nights at SN we transferred to our Home at SRC on July 2. The ride from Negril was nice and we arrived around noon. We went to the Concierge office and got checked in. Orlando came to greet us and he and Joshayne were our butlers for the week. Of course the rooms were not ready so went...

The holiday was pure paradise, I would recommend to anyone. We went for 2 weeks and would have stayed longer if we could. The food is to a high standard and the service is very good , everyone treats you like your special. The water sports were available every day and keep you entertained. The private island is very beautiful...

We booked our vacation through Ruth DeMuth at TripGuy.com and couldn't have been more pleased. Ruth got us a beautiful suite, 2 of the best butlers and we had a fantastic time. Everyone on property is friendly and dedicated to the guests having the best time possible. Ellis and Hughill our butlers were wonderful and the management was awesome. Our...

My wife and I stayed for a long weekend. We were upgraded to another room which was bigger and had a small balcony over the smaller pool and the beach. I agree with other commments about the need to upgrade the rooms a bit (the bed did smell a bit stale as well) but it wasn't bad enough to be...

My husband and I had an amazing honeymoon at Sandals Royal Carribean. Like many of you, I read a bunch of reviews before booking our honeymoon to find the best one in our price range. I found alot of negative reviews and I was alittle nervous however, when we arrived there everything was perfect. The service and people there are...

What a disappointing honeymoon! Mold and ants in our room. It took 5 days to get any reservations, and food was all subpar! GROSS stray cats were coming up to our tables in the 'fine dining" restaurants’. You have to TIP to get any type of service! Bars close at 1am. General Manager Louis Grant was less than accommodating in...

I would first of all like to start out by saying that we are far from “snooty” and it takes very little to please us. I am a secretary by day and a waitress at night, so I am just thankful to be able to go on a tropical vacation. We work very hard to be able to go on...

I want to start this review by saying every single staff member here went above and beyond. They are friendly, helpful, courteous, and seem to enjoy helping you. As opposed to other reviews I did not find the gift shop staff or any other staff pushy at all. If anything they seemed to be very concerned about you getting exactly...
