We ventured only to the sea side for some of our dinners. The food was good and plentiful. There are so many people to thank for making the vacation memorable. Brian Roper GM, our butlers...

This was our first trip to a Sandal's and we were impressed to say the least. Our accomodations were perfect. We received a free upgrade and had a beautiful room which shared a semi-private pool. All of our meals were fantastic! We have to plan another trip as we didn't have enough time to try all the restaurants. We loved...

We really enjoyed our time @ SGR. The transfer from the airport was smooth & the shuttle driver decided not to make us wait for anybody else, so we got a private ride (just the 2 of us!).
