“Beach lover? Great Place~”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Love MO Bay, We have been twice and each time feels like we are coming back to such a fimiliar place, we love it and even the staff remember us from our previous trip.
We have had a couple different room categories, but my favorite is the Beachfront walkout room (club level)
If you love pools, this is not the place for you-This was the first Sandals ever, so the pools are small, if you are a beach lover (and since you are in the caribbean I am guessing you are) this is a gret spot. A long beach with lots of room and private spaces.
Whats great about this resort, if you need more reasons, is that you are aout 5 mins from the airport so you get to enjoy your vacation pretty quickly after you land AND there are 2 other resorts near by you get to use, although, I only think the Royal Caribbean is worth visiting.
The Royal Thai is a must to eat at! Missing a football/baseball/hockey game? No worries mon! The cricketer pub has plenty of red stripe and your hometown team on tv for you-bring your jersey! You will find other fans near by.
The only thing I am not entirely pleased about Sandals is their nightly entertainment. Its ok, but there are only so many times you can see a fire eater during one vacation.

Room Tip: Beachfront walkout rooms a must!

My husband and I spent 4 days at Sandals MoBay for our 31st anniversary. This is our second time staying at this resort. Upon our arrival everything was special and perfect our room was in the Almond building with a beautiful view of the sea from our balcony, stocked bar in the room. The staff was the best...from the bartenders at EVERY bar to the wait persons, remembering your drinks and what you ordered for lunch. We ate at the beach bar everyday for the food was fabulous and quick, with the best pizza ever. We did go to the Sandals Caribbean for dinner one evening, which was nice..did the island restaurant, very good. I have absolutely no complaints even the weather was perfect and yes it is quite in September but we like that. We are definitely planning our next anniversary here and perhaps another trip prior to that. Thanks Sandals MOBAY for the wonderful anniversary and trip and see you soon.

My friend and I stayed at Sandals Montego Bay for 4 nights. I had been to Jamaica several times, and at different Sandals resorts. This was my first time at this one. The room seemed a bit small and had more furniture in it than seemed necessary. Our room catagory did not allow us to get any liquor in our room. Our mini-frig was strictly pop, water and juice. They never seemed to over load it with water! 4 small bottles a day for 2 people.
The food was excellent! I have not ONE negative thing to say about it! The bartenders are always nice and would NEVER take a tip. It's a Sandals rule for their staff, and everyone stuck to it!! Our favorite spot was the beach bar. Kenneth, Camille and Devon were our favorites. If you're on the beach, they will serve your drinks to you there which is a nice perk! The seating at the beach bar was OK for a couple of drinks, but if you spend too much time on the wooden seats, and aren't tall enough to be able to touch the ground....be prepared for a back-ache...I don't care HOW old you are! The seats are VERY uncomfortable!!
The beach was huge and clean. There were always people from Sandals Carlyle and Sandals Royal Caribbean at our resort because we had the best beach. We took the free shuttle to the Royal Caribbean for lunch, and the ferry to the private island for drinks. The Bartender at the Private Island could not have possibly been any slower!! Not that we were in any hurry....but would have apprciated a drink before I turned old enough to retire!! LOL!!
If you're looking for affordable transportation while in Jamaica....to go shopping, take an excursion, or tour the cities....get ahold of me! We used a driver by the name of Kingsley Clarke. He was polite, prompt and a LOT cheaper than a taxi! Contact me and I can give you contact information for him.
The only down side to this property was the fact that it was so close to the airport that every 14-15 minutes a plane would fly overhead and completely drown out any conversation you might be having!! Being so close to the airport is also a positive, as it takes about 10 minutes to get to resort!

Room Tip: Top shelf booze at all of the bars. Ask for extra water in your frig.You'll be glad you did. The...

My husband and I love Sandals MoBay! It's a small resort, but the beach area is beautiful! The staff if soooo friendly and they even remember your name! We stayed in the Palms Building with an ocean view it was spectacular! We went on the Red Dread booze cruise it was a lot if fun. We go in September which is not too busy and I like that. We did not make reservations, but got in all the restaurants that we wanted to. This was our second time to this resort and we cant wait to go back!

This was our fourth time at Sandals Montego Bay. We stayed Sept. 6 thru the 12th for our anniversary. We booked a butler suite and had two of the best butlers on the resort: Andrea and Danesha. They listened to and fulfilled all of our requests. They also surprised us with romantic meals, bubble baths with rose petals and "let's get it on" spelled out in palm leaves.
Upon arrival we left the room and hit the beachbar. After we returned to our room after a couple hours, we discovered our butler had unpacked all of our luggage and put everything away. Making us feel so at home. Our presidential beachfront walkout (which was an upgrade) was absolutely beautiful, comfortable and luxurious. The staff at this resort is the best, which is why we always come back. Joseth, the day manager, is amazing, she remembered us and greeted us warmly. I talked with her, laughed with her and she shared pictures of her daughter. Everyone there makes you feel like family. They understand it's a vacation, you are there to relax and enjoy the company of the one you love whether you want excitement or romance. They have it all here!
The bar staff is amazing, Gary always had my husband's drink at the ready before he even reached the bar. Clayton, kept my drink coming and even introduced me to the "Clayton special," which will be my drink of choice when we go back next year. All of the younger bartender's such as Donald, Deandre and Jethro will become that much greater by studying the moves of these older guys whose customer service skills are impeccable. Joseph, the supervisor, who has been there since our first visit, has a great team. Camille, is a server, whom I think would make a great female bartender. She has a commanding presence and a good sense of humor.
The beach was amazing, beautiful and clean. This resort is close to the airport, but that just means you can get your vacation started that much quicker. And when an airplane does fly overhead grab the person you came with and kiss 'em! You won't be complaining about the airplanes after that, you may even find them romantic.
The food at all of the restaurants was amazing, especially Tokyo Joe's. Petrulla is a wonderful hostess there. Duncan works wonders as the Soon come back liason. We had a wonderful talk at the Welcome back dinner. That's another great event, and she made it very un-stuffy.
Soon come back? Everytime mon!

Room Tip: Get a butler suite, it's worth it.

Wife and I were celebrating 40th birthday at the location. We were treated excellent by all all staff members. The beach was immaculate and the food was excellent at all the places we did eat at. We regret that we were unable to eat at the Italian restuarant because we could not get any reservations, but all of our other meals were very good. I personally reccomend Tokyo Joes. I also reccomend sitting at Kamal's table for casino night... he made the night especially fun for all of us that were sitting with him. All of the staff is pleasant and goes out of their way to make sure you are happy. The only negative thing I would even mention is that they forgot to bring our bags down at checkout time, but that little thing was overlook being the great time they showed us at the resort. Overall a 10 out of 10 for this location and would reccomend it to any of my freinds of collegues!

Great place to chill and enjoy yourself. We went for 5 nites for a combined anniversary/ birthday. What I like most is that you can do as much or as little as you like. Some days we were really active ( snorkeling, water skiing, wakeboard) and others just chilling at the pool.
We will definitely return. I think I would like to try a different "all inclusive" first so I can fairly compare. All in all, great time.
If you want a special evening, highly recommend the private dinner. Worth the extra money. Very romantic.
