From the moment we stepped foot out of security from the airport the sandals staff made our honeymoon unforgettable and absolutely delightful! The resort is small personal and romantic. The beach is small but very private due to the island and little reef that sits in front on the beach. Making the waters always nice to swim in. And the...

We have been to this resort many times and is one of our favorites. The staff is excellent, so friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful, we had a swim up suite and it was absolutely gorgeous. The food was very good. A nice variety of restaurants and the beach grill was great when you were on the beach or...

And My wife and I completely agree about the...

Spent 7 nights at the Royal Caribbean (Sept 12-19)-another great vacation. Food was good, diving was good, service was exceptional-all in all Sandals delivered once again. The Thai island was a nice relaxing place to spend a day and we really enjoyed this resort. We found the staff very friendly and willing to please. We would return.

We are Sandals Platinum Members and began our Sandals/Beaches adventure at this resort in 2006 to celebrate our 25th anniversary, and returned this year to...

We stayed at the Royal Caribbean for our honeymoon. Our favorite part of the resort was the night life! Two playmakers that really stand out are Hollywood and Chico. If you go, get to know these gentlemen! They are hilarious and very entertaining! The room was decent, we didn't pay for a deluxe suite. The maid service is very good,...

This was our 7th trip to a Sandals and 4th to S.R.C. in 3.5 years. We had thought about going to a Reunion Week for a while and because of a great flight price decided to go. Although we have always had a great time at Sandals the Reunion Week was extra special. The Day Time Cruise was a blast!...

Prior to coming to SRC I read hundreds of reviews about the property. I know there are some negative reviews on here about SRC, but I have to tell you my wife and I failed to see anything negative at all regarding SRC.
