My husband and I just returned a couple days ago. Our experience was absolutely amazing, made even more exceptional by the incredible staff. Shevoy the bartender on the island, Syan, the photographer and Butlers, Marjorie and Matthew made and already perfect vacation, beyond our expectations. The OWB are pristine. The ones facing the ocean have perfect sunset views and perfectly...

My husband and I stayed in the Overwater Villas and had exceptional service! Beginning with our butlers, Tamara and McKoy. Tamara and McKoy went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I enjoyed every moment of our stay. They exceeded our needs by continuously going out of their way! They put great detail into all their responsibilities. What...

I too wanted to love this resort, but I can't say I did. The tours were way overpriced and really not worth it. We got the Butler suite facing the ocean however we had a very small view of the ocean and mostly our view was the pool (and the couples in it). This was my first all inclusive vacation...

Just returned from our 2nd stay at SRC. Like the first visit and the previous 25 visits to other Sandals locations everything was as good as we could hope for. Food, Bars, Restaurants, Service, and the grounds were what we have come to expect at Sandals. Once again the Jamaican people who work here really make the difference. Some of...

My new husband and I chose this location for our honeymoon. First of all, we stayed in an overwater villa and I am in 100% agreement with other reviewers that there was no water as advertised and pictured on the Sandals website. It was honestly ankle deep. We did not complain about it to management-- we just made the best...

Hello and thank you for your review of Sandals Royal Caribbean. Unfortunately it seems we were experiencing a temporary water condition and although this is beyond our control we can certainly understand how this would have been frustrating to you. I would like to apologize for the troubles and frustration that you may have experienced. I want you to know...

We stayed at Sandals Montego Bay, but were able to enjoy the feature of stay at one, play at all. In turn we spent quite a bit of time at Sandals Royal Caribbean after being disappointed with Sandals Montego Bay. Beach: Though the beach is not large there are many, many loungers and areas to sit in either the sun...

We visited SRC for our anniversary in August 2016. Because we were only taking a short stay (4n), we chose this resort due to its proximity to the airport. It is an older Sandals property, and one of the smaller properties that we have visited, but it was well appointed, and the compactness of the resort suited our stay. After...

I am writing my review as I fly home from 4 nights at the Sandals Royal Caribbean resort. I am going to write a very honest review because I read hundreds before I decided to stay here and it helped me base my decision. And some of the reviews I read I have a hard time agreeing with. First, I...

We visited the private island at the Royal Carribean almost everyday of our stay at MoBay, and the pool bar, the Jerk Shack for lunch everytime we were there, the Royal Thai one evening for dinner, the quick boat ride over, the beach, and all the facilities were excellent. We especially loved the lively pool bar because of the service...

My wife and I stayed March 4-11, 2017 to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. This was our 4th Sandals and first time at SRC. It was the smallest one we’ve been to so far, but a more relaxing one than a couple of others that we have been to because we weren't having to walk long distances to everything. Unfortunately,...
