My husband and I just got back from 6 days at Sandals Royal Caribbean. This was our fourth time at Sandals, but first at RC (we had been for dinner before at the private island). While we had a good time and the resort was nice, we will not come back. Let me start with the pros: -Beautiful grounds -Extremely...

My SO and I booked a 10-day trip to Sandals RC many months ago for a trip in January 2017, and paid the deposit. Unfortunately due to a banking issue out of our control but currently being resolved, we were having trouble completing the final payment (over $8000). Any other resort, upon being informed of our problems, would have been...

Our Butlers Andrei and Sherry Ann were beyond outstanding and went above and beyond for us and we're the nicest ever!! We enjoyed our Honeymoon immensely because of them as well as Kerome for our private Candlelight Dinner and the bartenders were excellent and very friendly! Hope to be back soon!

Resort was beautiful!! Larger than expected from websites and although most rooms seemed to be full, no area or restaurant ever seemed crowded. Staff was very friendly, courteous and entertaining. Food at all restaurants we tried was very good to excellent. Beach on the private island offered break from the wind on the 1-2 days that winds were high winds...

We would like to begin by thanking Leslie Kepplinger of Trips ahoy for being a...

Just returned yesterday. A lot going on so we wanted to highlight a few of the gems here. Ellis the butler is bar none the best butler. We interacted with him more than Dwight - who is equally awesome! Thanks for the tender care you gave us after a pretty rough couple of weeks prior to vacation! I still want...

Last year, we went to SN and were really excited to be back to SRC this year. Both resorts are exactly what we like. Laid back and relaxing. We booked a...

This our third trip to SRC. Just a short 4 night stay this time. Our main reason for coming here is for the island. The new improvements look very nice, however, there have been some changes while not necessarily bad were not my favorite. The Jerk Shack looks very nice and the food was very good but I miss the...

We just returned from Sandals Royal Caribbean after a week long holiday. We had a wonderful time in Jamaica. The people there are so gracious, and the staff at Sandals really made us feel special. We would like to mention a few of the folks who really stood out. Cion at the front desk helped us with our room, and...
