“Amazing honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here from May 28-June 6, and all I can say is that it was perfect honeymoon bliss. Everyone at the resort always had a smiling happy face and a welcome hello when you walked by. The penthouse room provided amazing sea views, and our butler Flo was wonderful. Even Sherry Ann was incredibly helpful even though she wasn't our butler. The food was very delicious from all the restaraunts and the pizza place was a favorite afternoon snack. The bartenders were all terrific with their drinks, and after being there for so long, they know what you are going to want as they see you walking up, especially Andre at the swim up bar. The real stars here is the entertainment team. Ginger has an incredible team here with Storm, Richie Rich, Hollywood, and Chico. They make the days and nights fun and make you not want to leave here. We will can't wait to come back here and pick up right where we left off.

My wife and I have stayed at SRC several times now and upon arrival we are greeted with "Welcome Home". We've enjoyed the resort so well that we encougaed our two daughters to have their weddings at the resrt last August and October. The location, the service, the staff, and the food continues to be better than expectations! And, Mr Orkely, we are headed back again this month for another fun filled, enjoyable and relaxing time

Room Tip: Any room near the beach or pool is great! Avoid the rooms with the floor mounted ac!!

I can't say enough about the staff at Sandals Royal Caribbean. They make you feel like family and go out of their way to make sure you are having fun.

I read many reviews before going, and the resort could use a little more maintenance. There was a missing lock on our door, but we called the front desk and they took care of it right away.

The food was fantastic. There were a few things we didn't like, but that will happen anywhere you go. Le Jardinier was fabulous and was Cucina Romano at Montego Bay. I will say, stay away from the desserts at the Regency, had a Tiramisu that wasn't. If you want great desserts, go to Cricketers. They also have great Eggs Benedict. AND, the Rainbow shots aren't to be missed, AMAZING!

Overall, they made our 20th Anniversary relaxing, stress free, and most of all romantic.

Thanks Everyone!

We got a married at this hotel a long time ago and forgot to put a review on. The hotel and staff were fabulous, holidays haven't compared since as the service was excellent. We would definately go back. Rooms were excellent they offered a complimentary upgrade to a suite and nothing was too much bother.

My husband and I wanted to go away for our 25th anniversary and we choose Sandals Royal Caribbean. Everyone were very attentive and very friendly. Mr. Orkley took care of all our needs till the day we left. The restaurants were great especially the French & Thai you do need to make reservation as soon as you get there. The other restaurants no need to make reservation and the food is great. The entertainment crew ( Storm, Vijay, Chiko, Starboy, Hollywood, Rich ) were great so friendly and very attentive as well. The bartenders, cooks, waiters, waitress and cleaning crew were also great we were satisfied with how everyone treated us.

Once we met our butler, Danae we knew all would be good. The beaches are not as large as some, but after a day on the beach and in the water it was perfect for us. Food was good, the way of the lay out was beautiful, with all the landscaping, it was like a jungle. A big shout out to Danae and all she did for us, the beautiful bubble baths and champagne that laid out for us after a day on the beach was to die for, She was Wonderful, kind and always there for us. We fell in love with her.

My wife and I spent a week at Sandals Royal Carribbean for our honeymoon from May 28th - June 6th. We choose this location due to the accessbility to from Baltimore (direct flights) and the private island and it didn't dissapoint. From the minute we arrived until we left we were treating to a week of luxury.

When we arrived in Montego Bay we were escorted into a Sandals lounge and had a quck beer before we got a shuttle to the resort (less than a 10 minute wait). The resort was only about 10 minutes from the hotel. Check-in was not until 3:00, we were served a rum punch (quite a tasty cocktail) and one of our butler's, Khalil, came over to greet us. He escorted us to lunch at The Regency, where we had some jerk chicken, a must while you are in Jamaica.

Our room was ready about 15 minutes after lunch, we chose a swim up suite and couldn't have been happier with the room. When we arrived the were rose petals and a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. Khalil made a reservation for us that evening a Elenor's, a jamaican cuisine restaurant, which was probably our favorite we ate there twice. That evening we met our other butler Jason, he had a reserved table for us.

The rest of the staff was amazing throughout our trip, we loved drinks at Mariner's with Corey and Adrian... they make some mean cocktails.

During our trip our butler's Jason and Khalil took unbelievable care of us, from dinner reservations to setting up our beach chairs with a cooler to scheduling activities, they did it all... and the daily after-noon snacks were great. They made sure that we had everything we needed throughout the week, and could not have been any better. I would highly recommend both them and the butler service to anyone going to Sandals. We will surely be back!

Room Tip: Highly recommend the butler level rooms... you will not be sorry
