My hubby and i have recently returned after one week at SRC....we had expected this to be the same or better than our other visits to Sandals at Grand Pineapple in Antigua and Halcyon Beach in St Lucia but i have to say that I agree with stoneybroke01 that we were disappointed. The holiday was to celebrate 30 years of...

Wasn't sure what to expect, especially never having been to an island. We couldn't have been more pleased with the resort itself and the staff. Weather was gorgeous, as was the view from every location within. We stayed 6 nights all of which were more than entertaining for us. Plenty of activities all day, all night and of course the...

We decided on Jamaica for our 10th Wedding Anniversary a year ago. After friends went to Royal Caribbean and visited Sandals Montego Bay where we had originally booked they convinced us to change locations and we are very happy we did. Yes, RC is close to the airport, but most resorts on this island are going to have some air...

My boyfriend and I just got back from Jamaica this past weekend and we cannot keep quiet about how much we loved this trip! We wanted a vacation that was all about relaxation and paradise, and that's exactly what we got here. The grounds at Royal Caribbean are beautiful; it's a little bit on the small side, but if you...

Returned today but will never forget the outstanding service experienced at this facility. If you are looking for complete care and are in need of a butler, you would be doing yourself a diservice if you don't demand Adia and Florence; they are excellent. They anticipate your every need and go above and beyond the call to please! The two...

Since we've returned to the Royal 12 consecutive years , that should tell anyone reading this what we think about Sandals Royal. The food, activities, and especially the staff were outstanding. Okley, Shadae, Tashawn, Eric, Verna, Odane, Tremaine, Adrian, David, Alrick, Mauvette, Shaq, Karla, and too many more to name here were just a few of the employees that made...

Only had a 3 night stay but from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out we were looked after 24/7. Had our room upgraded to a Grand Deluxe Beachfront so had a wonderful position in the Balmoral building with a view of the ocean and overlooking the quieter of the pools. Room looked newly renovated and...

We were here for two weeks in early March and overall we were a little dissapointed as this was the first time with Sandals and we had been led to believe that they were in a different class when it comes to this type of resort - certainly a similar resort in Mexico that we were at really did come...

We got back yesterday and are still raving about our vacation. Our last trip to Jamaica was so so, but Sandals was great. We knew the food would be great, and it was, but at our last Jamaican trip we found the people to be cold and distant this time they were incredible. Dora was the best and Kevin at...
