This was our first trip to Jamaica and was our second time staying at a Sandals. The first experience at a Sandals was excellent so we were really looking forward to this trip. Overall we enjoyed our time at this resort but I don't think we'd stay here again if / when we come back to Jamaica. If we could...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here in December 2016. We stayed for one week in a beach view room. This is a great place if you're looking to lounge all day and drink cocktails. The beach is small and not exactly secluded, but nice. The crowd at this resort was mostly 40's to 60's so keep that in...

This was one of the best trips we've ever taken. The staff, especially Ammoy, Roderick, Bubbles, Kevoun and Andre, are great. So friendly, helpful and make you feel welcome. We will definitely be back to this resort.

This was either our 9th or 10th trip to Jamaica. 5th one with Sandals, and our first trip to this Sandals resort. I chose this location because I wanted a nice relaxing vacation where it only took 10-15 minutes to get to. After reviewing the three Sandals options for the Montego Bay area I choose this one to celebrate our...

My husband and I just got back from our trip to this resort, but our 11th time to a Sandals Resort. We stayed in a club level ocean front room that was renovated nicely but very close to the nightly entertainment and the main pool. When we arrived it was quite loud by the pool with guests playing games, having...

We visited over New Year's Even in 2016 and loved the place. We have been to Jamaica many times but this hotel was the best by far. We loved the private island as it was relaxing. The staff on the island was amazing, Monique our bartender and waitress was phenomenal, she knew us by name by day 2, and brought...

Second time to this beautiful property. My wife and I love the quaint size of the resort with only 200 rooms it is small enough to get the service you expect and large enough to have a great restaurant selection and lovely grounds. Food is excellent for an all inclusive. Le Jardinier the French restaurant sits outside under the stars...

A bit of read, so grab a beer or wine… It’s now Jan 2017, we were at the Sandals Jamaica resorts late Oct early Nov. We stayed at the Royal Caribbean resort but were able to spend time at the other two Sandals resorts, the Sandals Montego Bay and the Sandals Caryle Inn. We will include the other two in...

My wife and I just returned from a week at RC. We had a recently renovated walkout butler suite in the Edinburgh building with an amazing tranquility tub. The room and location were perfect. Our butlers, Hughill and Nigy, did a wonderful job making our trip more than we could have imagined. From the fruit and cheese trays on the...

We started out our trip in Sandals Negril on 12/23/16. This was our second visit here. The first time was 6/14. A lot has changed since then and I was not as impressed with the place as I was the first time. The staff was not as friendly, nothing impressive about Christmas, with the exception of Santa arriving via Limo...
