My husband and I got married at Sandals Royal Caribbean on March 11, 2017. Literally amazing from the moment you walk on property. Approximately 10(ish) minutes away from the MBJ airport (there is a shuttle that drives you to and from locations). We stayed a week at this resort and stayed in the HGBT suite - complete with two amazing...

This is the second year in a row we've been at Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort and Private Island. We were here a year ago for our honeymoon, and booked our vacation last year at the resort for this year. I reviewed our first trip last year. We flew Southwest Airlines again, and getting there was a breeze. I remember getting...

My wife and I had never been to a Sandals resort before, but we decided to splurge for our 30th anniversary and rent one of the over the water villas with full butler service at SRC. It was fantastic! Every employee there is well trained, and super friendly. Our team of butlers, Monique and Alexus were the best! They completely...

Smaller resort -- easy to get around. If you are assigned a room on the second or third floors, be prepared to climb the stairs (We counted 30 steps for each floor). There is no elevator except in one of the buildings (Building #3, I think). But, it's good exercise ! ROOMS have a nice balcony with new table and...

I have no idea how someone could give this place a bad review?! This was the most breathtakingly beautiful place! The food and the drinks are so perfectly. Jamaica Smile is my jam! So good. The staff are legit! Cion, Courtney, Roderick, Tracy, Onuf (Thompson) are just a few of the names I can remember. Every single person is so...

Very convenient only a 10 minute transfer from the airport. The greeting was warm and friendly and following our welcome drinks we were whisked off to our room. Accommodation was in a quiet poolside room so only a few steps to sunbeds and swimming in the secluded pool. We also relaxed on the beach and on the private island. The...

My husband and I stayed March 4-7, 2017. This was our 6th Sandals and first time at SRC. It was the smallest one, but most relaxing one we've been to because we weren't having to walk long distances to everything. Starting at the airport, we arrived on a Saturday and had Club Mobay which bypassed all the long lines. This...

First let me tell you if you don't have a good time here it's your fault, the resort is beautiful and the staff is incredible ,now a couple of things to think about if you get a room that is below a club level your not going to have a stocked bar in your room so if that is important...

Room 5112 Gary and Carolyn would like to thank our Butlers, Ellis and Dwight, for their superb service along with all staff which includes Sobreena, Marvin, Tremaine, Junior. This by no means represents the total staff that needs to be thanked. Ellis and Dwight took such good care of us with all the extras they did for us making our...

“If you decide to stay in the over the water bungalow, request ocean view. Rooms 5 to 9 are best. 10-16 you'll have no privacy.”
