We stayed at Sandals Royal Carribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica for the week of Valentine's Day 2017. It was absolutely incredible! First, we stayed two nights in one of the Beachfront Honeymoon rooms without a butler. It was very nice - on the ground level with a pool, jacuzzi & small, private beach right in front. It was at the...

This was our third visit to Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort. Sandals always delivers a superb experience. Their resorts are ultra-romantic, all-inclusive and highly halcyon. The Sandals staff is amazing. They make you feel like you are a VIP. This resort will pamper you. Everyone we encountered make us feel welcomed. The entertainment staff always worked to ingratiate and accommodate us...

I had never been to a Sandals resort before. I had been warned about the food and staff on all inclusive resorts to be subpar, but this was not the case. The food was amazing. I never had a bad meal. The staff was amazing, especially the MC crew. Oshine "Energy" became a part of our wedding group after the...

The close proximity to the airport is a plus, the airplanes flying over the resort is a minus. We also visited Sandals Montego Bay (more...
