Carol and I simply wanted a place to relax and wiggle our toes in warm sand. We were delighted with the beaches and the service. We upgraded to a butler who reserved our beach chairs every day. he also packed a small cooler with beer and soft drinks. The cooler was handy, but unnecessary because of the good service by...

We stayed in one of the honeymoon suites with a water view. What a great time. 7 nights and 8 days. We would go again in a heart beat. The service was impeccable. We had breakfast delivered to our room every morning. The food in all the restaurants was delicious. We were here many years ago, October 2002, so I...

Just returned from 7 night stay at Sandals RC. It was our first time to Jamaica, and first time to a Sandals resort. We spent alot of time reviewing comments on tripadvisor before deciding on this resort, and couldn't be happier with our choice. This is a great place to relax, and enjoy top notch service. The grounds on this...

We stayed at SRC from February 23rd to March 1st. Let me start off by saying the weather is perfect in Jamaica. Not too hot or humid, the sun is out most of the day, becoming increasingly cloudy in early afternoon. The clouds tend to clear up around dinner time. We had a Butler level room, right when you enter...

Omar assisted us and provided us with Rum...

We loved this resort! We have been to quite a few Sandals resorts and have always enjoyed ourselves tremendously. After spending a week at Sandals Negril (we had a fabulous time), we weren't sure if we were going to enjoy this resort as much. It turns out that we had such a wonderful experience, that we are going back in...

This was our first trip to a Sandals resort and it won't be our last! We arrived after 10pm after a long day of traveling and were greeted with Jamaican punch and the easiest check in we have ever done. The staff was friendly and helpful. The entertainment crew was fun, friendly and became lifelong friends - Theo, Hollywood and...

On arrival we were invited to wait in the Sandals lounge,... here we could help ourselves to beer, soft drinks or tea & coffee. As this property is so close to the airport the transfer was brief. We were welcomed with big smiles, refreshing damp cloths and offered sparkling wine and comfortable seats while our check-in process was done. We...

We just returned from our third stay here and just want to congratulate the management and staff for the improvements that have been made since we were here last in 2009. We have never had any complaints about this resort, but they have definitely stepped up the quality of the food and the service here, especially at breakfast! We congratulate...
