Been here 4 times its one of the places I choose to come to stay in Montego bay . Sandals is great at what it does but if you want a cozy swim up suite , not too far from the airport then this is the place for you . If you want to head out to Whitter village plaza...

This was our 2 visit to the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort in the past 2 years. We love it! We used the Butler service this time. You receive 2 Butlers that assist you with ANYTHING.

Our third trip to our favorite Sandals resort. Smaller and more intimate with access to the other 2 Sandals nearby! Incredible staff! No butler room necessary as staff is so attentive! Going back again in the fall.

My husband and I visited Sandals, Royal Caribbean April 13-18, 2017. Montego Bay has 3 Sandals resorts. We picked this one not only as a recommendation from our travel agent, but because of the private island and layout. We had something similar at Sandals Nassau and loved it. The resort is not large, perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway. We...

We were staying at Sandals Carlyle / Sandals Inn and decided to come to Royal Caribbean for the evening and to eat at Royal Thai. Royal Caribbean is a beautiful resort and is more upscale than the other 2 resorts. The Royal Thai is on a little island across the water that you take a water shuttle to. It was...

My wife and I had a great time and had the best butler named Dennis. He took care of everything for us. Rohan the bartender was awesome and I never laughed so hard. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the food and expected more choices and better food than we had. I would strongly urge anyone who goes...

Warning, long post. Just returned from Sandals Royal Caribbean Jamaica, where we stayed in one of the over the water villas. We had so much fun just relaxing, enjoying the views and hospitality. I’ll start off by saying this was our first visit to a Sandals, or any all-inclusive resort. We are not big drinkers/eaters and we weren’t sure how...

They are close to the airport which means a 15 minutes bus ride. Bad news is close to the airport means you will hear plans. If you are from the city, you will barely notice. The beach is small but cozy - I prefer the quality. We stayed in Barbados last time and it remains my favourite but RC has...

We have been to Sandals several times over the years, and to Jamaica multiple times. We decided to spend our 25th anniversary at Sandals Royal Caribbean and eagerly awaited our trip. We arrived early in the morning and to our delight our room was ready. Due to the fact we had been at Sandals many times, I had asked for...
