This is the original Sandals resort from which all the others sprang. As you can imagine, it is not the most modern establishment but they have maintained it well, despite a few areas showing their age. The resort is fairly small and compact and it sits at the end of the runway for Montego Bay Airport. The upside of this is that the transfer from the airport to the resort is just a few minutes. You can guess the downside!
All the restaurants are good, though the main dining room's buffet selections became very samey very quickly. Our choice as best restaurant was the traditional Jamaican one, which was outstanding.
One real annoyance here was that every morning when we got to the beach early we were the only ones there and yet all the sunbeds and shaded areas had already been reserved by other guests' butlers (we did not book a butler room - perhaps we should have!). To be sitting there seeing these prime locations being unused all morning was very irritating.
Nevertheless, our stay was made most enjoyable by the staff, who were without exception friendly and helpful. The bars were fun and the full (included) mini bars in the rooms made life very easy!
