We spent a week at Negril and then moved onto SRC for 11 nights. We are Platinum guests and so 1 week at SRC was our 7 night complimentary stay and 4 nights we paid for. We were given a private transfer to SRC and arrived around lunchtime. Check-in was smooth and we received a one category upgrade. Our first...

Inconsistencies in amenities (same room accommodation - some w/liquor, some w/o; some w/butler, some w/o). Needed a ladder to climb into bed! Food was so-so. Needed a flashlight to see menu & what you were eating. Hard to get dinner reservations. Other all-inclusive resorts deter any tipping (employees can lose their job); not here. Won't go to another Sandals Resort....

We had a great stay at the Royal C with the help of Hayley from Beach Bum Vacations. Hayley helped prep us for our stay by answering my numerous questions via email. She definitely went above and beyond and we will use them in all our future travels. Once we got accustomed to the culture of the resort and how...

Our first trip to Sandals - St Lucia (La-Toc) Beautiful view from our walk out beach front room. (Had to walk a short distance to the beach) but view made up for it. Employees were very nice. We got married on the beach & they organized everything. I only chose the cake flavor & flowers for my bouqet. Loved the...

First time at a Sandals. We choose this property based on a friends recommendation after they spent a week here in 2012. We were not disappointed. This property is quite, well maintained, with a very friendly staff and has numerous choices for dining that we were pleased with. A private island for sun and swimming are also part of this...

My wife and I returned to Royal on Jan 18, 2013 for another week in paradise. We have never been disappointed here, and this trip was no exception. After a year of health issues we felt that a week around the Kensington pool would be just what the doctor ordered. We were pampered with in your lounge chair drink orders,...

Just had our 5th awesome vacation at this Sandals. We keep going back because we love the people here. They always welcome us home and make us feel special. The food is excellent....and the french restaurant should not be missed. Verna serves a great drink with a beautiful smile at the pool bar and the entertainment crew works hard to...

This is the first time at a Sandals and Jamaica. I would recommend it to anyone! The area is so lush and beautiful, the beach stunning, if a little small and staff are second to none!

This was our first Sandals experience and will not be our last. We are a couple in our early 30s and stayed in the Buckingham building in the Royal Honeymoon crystal lagoon walkout suite with a butler.
