Our holiday at Sandals was the most fantastic experience we have ever had. The staff were first class, we had butler service and they were absolutely amazing, anyone who has never been to Sandals should try to see this beautiful hotel, restaurants were varied and offered many delightful cuisines, everything about our stay was fabulous

This was our first trip to Jamaica and we could not have chosen a more beautiful or wonderful resort. We had a great time and everyone was very friendly and the service was impeccable.

This was our fifth trip to Jamaica, starting with our honeymoon 42 years ago at the Royal Plantation, Ocho Rios.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here over the first week of October.
