We stayed at Sandals Royal Caribbean for 7 nights in November and it was amazing. We have could have easily stayed another 7 nights. Everything about the experience exceeded our expectations. When we first arrived on the bus we were greeted with cool towels and a rum punch while they were getting us checked in. We were then taken to...

We stayed at Sandals Royal Caribbean from November 17th to the 24th. When we arrived we received a free upgrade due to our 25th anniversary coming up. The room was a beachfront honeymoon suite, very nice. Our room was in the Kensington building which had the east pool directly outside of our room and a few more steps there was...

We traveled during Nov. 9-17. Originally we had planned the traditional wedding thing and became miserable. Also it is more expensive than what we paid to have our wedding and honeymoon. We had family join us for 4 days for our wedding there at the resort. Everyone had an amazing time! The process was very simple to plan and book...

Enjoyed our week here. This was our second Sandals holiday. We went to Antigua last year and it's difficult not to compare. This was a smaller more personal resort which was good but had less restaurants so less choice. We tried to book the Thai restaurant on the island but waited 24 hours after we arrived and it was fully...

My husband and I stayed at Sandals Royal Caribbean for our honeymoon November 5th-November 11th, 2012 and it was absolutely perfect! After a chaotic several months leading up to the wedding (we won a dream wedding contest!), we were looking for a place where we could just relax and enjoy each other--SRC was perfect.

We just got back from our 4th vacation at Royal Caribbean. We love the atmosphere, the food, and the staff but there were disappointments. We were not offered an upgrade; if a room were not available, then put a bottle of wine in our room, a few crackers, or something to make us realize we were really welcomed home. Since...

We have many friends that have chose this route and we don't regret one bit getting married abroad. Value is incredible and the hardest part is just packing. We chose Jamaica for their 2 day residency requirement and overall they were the cheaper of the resorts. This resort is close to the enough to the airport that once you get...
