Just got back from the Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay. Although this resort is smaller than the other Sandals we have been to it seemed more personal than some of the others we have visited. The service at the beach bar and grill was outstanding along with the pizzeria. They are all just a few steps from the beach and...

We visited SRC for our 35th Anniversary 2/1/13 to 2/8/13. We had never been to an all-inclusive before, so were not sure what to expect. We booked the Honeymoon Beachfront Suite with Butler Service. Trip through the airport was smooth, but we arrived on a Friday. Others told us of long lines at immigration if you fly in on a...

This was our second trip to the Royal Caribbean. It is our favorite. The staff is excellent, especially Valenti with the water sports! They were so nice and helpful. The food was excellent. We will be going back very soon!

We recently stayed at the Royal Caribbean. This was our 2nd year. This resort is smaller and more personable. The entertainment committee (especially Dora and Hollywood) helped make the trip a memorable stay. We upgraded our scuba qualification with Paul. He is an outstanding instructor. The food: Italian, Japanese, French, Jamaican were al outstanding. We'll definitely return again next year.

My husband and I visited the Royal Caribbean last week (3/16-3/23/13)while we were staying at Sandals Montego Bay. The property was phenomenal! The jerk chicken was much better here than it was at Sandals Mo Bay. We fell in love with the Royal Thai, and the island itself. We went back to the island during the day to enjoy the...

Spent a week at Sandals Whitehouse 2 years ago. Although smaller, the staff made the stay terrific for our mother/daughter team. Our room was noisy and as a light sleeper, Shana at the front desk took great care in changing our room. Storm and Ginger in entertainment, Ricardo with his great omelettes, Rolando and Ajkine in the Regency, Andrew, Orele,...
