My husband and I had stayed at Sandals Royal Caribbean many times and knew that it would be a wonderful wedding destination. When our son told us he wanted to get married and have the wedding in Jamaica, we knew what to recommend for the resort. We couldn't have made a better recommendation. Sandals Royal Caribbean went above and beyond....

We came home from Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay on Saturday. This week is rough! We miss our friends, the fun and the beautiful beach. Our room was always clean, the staff always said hello, the property was beyond words, the food and drink were amazing! Everyday we went to the buffet at the Regency and we were greeted...

We normally cruise for our vacations but I always lose 1.5 days as I "get my sea legs". This was like cruising but on land. This was our first visit to any Sandals Resort and quickly decided to make this an annual trip. Sandals Royal Caribbean is a beautiful resort and even though the resort was sold out, it didn't...

From the moment we arrived to the time we left for the airport on departure we had a very delightful time. From the Hotel Manager, Mr. Lance Lebert...

We stayed at Sandals MoBay and took advantage of the stay at 1 play at 3 deal. We had dinner at the Thai restaurant but went early to hang out at the resort. I have to say MoBay spoiled our expectations as it is very lively and social. I love it there! During our time at the Royal Caribbean not...

We recently traveled to the Royal during Thanksgiving week. The weather was rather breezy and on a few days the hot tubs felt better than the pool. We had a very relaxing week. Jeanette and I enjoy each other and getting away from the hustle of day to day life. This resort was perfect for that. We never left the...
