Choosing to get married at Sandals was the smartest thing we did in the wedding planning process! When we started to plan in the US, we became easily overwhelmed with all of the individual tasks: photos, dj, catering, flowers, etc. We both work full-time but wanted a beautiful wedding which friends and family could attend. We got in touch with a friend who specializes in destination weddings and vacations, and the rest was a breeze. We chose Montego Bay because we had a group of 30 friends and family who enjoy the nightlife and activities, so it was a perfect fit. Everyone had such an amazing time, and many want to come back with us. Venecia the wedding coordinator kept us in the loop with meetings and appointments. Orville the photographer from SnapShots was a dream to work with. He had so many creative ideas and suggestions. Our friends are jealous of our beautiful photos and gorgeous scenery. Jermaine and Nickroy, the wedding captain and servers, made the reception so beautiful and elegant. Reagan sang to us and our friends the day after the wedding at our cabana; it was a very special treat. Wendy, Sheryl and Marla at the Red Lane Spa made sure we looked our best and did magic with my hair and makeup! Kendria and Hartlan from the Entertainment Staff became great friends with our big group and were certainly memorable. The same goes for Satchwell the bellhop and Shaquille from Club Sandals..both were so accomodating and helpful with our group and went out of their way to answer all of our questions and requests. Also, the wonderful tropical drinks were a highlight. Garnell, Davion and Chad are some of the bartenders we thought were great. We cannot wait to come back and enjoy looking at our photo slideshow on our iPad every day. In fact, we decided to "Soon Come Back" the same week next year, while we were still at the resort. We may even bring another group! Thanks for making us truly feel like the King and Queen of the resort for the time that we were there!
We stayed in the Palms Building on the ground floor and had easy access to the beach and pools. We met so many great couples there, including people who come back every year, and we can understand why! In the future we look forward to coming back with a smaller group so we have time to leave the resort and do some excursions like the falls in Ocho Rios or Ricks Cafe in Negril. We did manage to take the complimentary shuttle over to the Sandals Royal Caribbean resort, just 8 minutes away! It was a great afternoon getaway with the private island with swim-up bar in the pool.
We were quite busy with wedding activities, as were our friends and family, so we wish we would've had more time to make reservations at all of the restaurants, but we definitely plan on making all of our dinner reservations for the week the moment we arrive the next time we travel there.

Just returned from our second trip to Sandals Montego Bay. This time we were in one of the newly renovated villas, and it was amazing. The jacuzzi tub was so deep you could drown in it. We had a wonderful, almost private, beach area. We took friends with us this time who had never been to Jamaica. They are hooked. We have stayed at a lot of Sandals, and I would have to say, this was some of the best food we have had. The Linguini Alfredo at the Italian restaurant was amazing. The Lobster Thermidor at Oleandar was fantastic. The meal at Tokyo Joe's was excellent. The beach service was always right on time. The first day snorkeling was incredible. As soon as we hit the water we were surrounded by hundreds of fish of a huge variety. Our friend went on 3 dives while we were there and he said it was the best he had ever seen. The service overall was great. We had a little glitch on check in, even though we were club level, but they made up for it after we got a manager involved. We used the new Club MoBay to get expedited through immigration and customs on the way in; and expedited through security to their amazing lounge on the way out. Worth every dime. The water was gorgeous and warm, and even though we had a little shower every day, it was still beautiful weather. I am ready to go back.

Room Tip: If you can get one of the renovated villas, it is the way to go.

I am a travel agent, so I always go in with a critical eye. This resort is amazing. The beach is long, with the softest sand I've ever had at an oceanfront resort. We had the butler service oceanfront honeymoon category in cottage 12, and what a wonderful way to celebrate our 29th anniversary. We only had three nights, but made the most of it. Food was very good - breakfast and lunch we either had at the poolside grill or buffet (Bayside), and the morning of our anniversary we ordered room service. They had written Happy Anniversary in leaves and flowers on our bed, tables, etc. Dinner was delicious - we ate at Tokyo Joes, Cucino, and Stewfish. Portions are sort of small but you could order more - and we never went hungry. Beringer wines were great, and they'd make you any cocktail you wanted. We sailed on their Hobie cats at least twice a day, went snorkeling, and my husband waterskied at least 20 times in 3 days. Each morning we woke up to a thatched hut equipped with beach towels and reserved for us in our name by our butler...no worrying about where to set up camp for the day!
The most amazing thing was the staff - no request was turned down. If I had to pick a complaint, it was that the beach chairs did not lie flat and the fruit served did not have a lot of flavor (partly due to the season) and they had limited fruit selections - but nothing to ruin your trip. The wireless (took us a while to get that right) was a decent speed and helped us keep in contact with the office/home. I loved that chairs and space was plentiful and you did not need towel cards like many all inclusive resorts. Fitness center was nice - but we did not try the spa services. We went over to Sandals Royal Caribbean as we heard rave reviews about their private island, but prefer Sandals Montego Bay as it is bigger and more spread out, with a much softer sand beach. I'm glad we picked the Montego Bay location, especially since it is a ten minute drive from the airport. All in all I'd go back in a heartbeat and can't recommend this resort highly enough. I always wondered if Sandals was worth the premium price and it certainly is a top notch property. Fellow guest ranged from twenty-somethings to couples in their eighties, so all ages were welcome.

Room Tip: cottage locations are further from the action, but provide a quiet escape.
