This was our 2nd time here, last time was 5 years ago prior to their remodel for our honeymoon. The villas are the best way to go. The resort is split in two, beach and riviera. You must take the bus between the two. There are stairs everywhere. If you have issues, dont stay here. I must say, the remodel...

We just returned from SGR and they never dissappoint. We have been going for 22 years to all Jamaica Sandals and love each one.
