We stayed at this beautiful resort from November 29 - December 8; nine gorgeous days at Sandals Royal Caribbean, a first for us. The resort is stunning and the staff are positively incredible.

Sandals Royal Caribbean was more than what we expected--great food, exceptional service and and one of the most beautiful places we have been in Jamaica. The resort was absolutely beautiful, but what we enjoyed the most was the people that worked there. The staff at Sandals Royal Caribbean made our week long stay a very memorable one-Karalie, Hollywood, Chico, Theodore,...

We visited the Sandals Royal Caribbean from December 19th to 25th. I can't say enough good things about the staff and agree with everything positive said by other reviewers. We would also mention something that has not been included in other reviews - the terrific guests that stay there. The resort is small and with a cozy and intimate feel...

We chose to return to the same resort we went to for our Honeymoon 15 years ago. It was heartwarming to find some of the same staff still there. The resort was wonderful. We want to thank all of the staff who made our trip so memorable.

This resort was a very good fit for us. It is compact and easy to get around but the grounds are landscaped to suggest privacy with the occasional social oasis. After a quick look at the recent reviews, I really can’t improve on the praise for the staff and quality of the resort so I will limit my remarks to...

My wife and I visited from December 10th through December 15th to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. Plenty of other reviewers have praised the staff, dining, and overall atmosphere, so I won't be repetitive other than to offer full-throated agreement with those sentiments. Instead I'll mention a few things that pleasantly surprised me (since they aren't mentioned on the Sandals...
