My husband and iI went to Sandals Royal Caribbean the last week in February. We were planning a short trip so it was importanat that we selected a resort that was easy to get to from the airport. This resort was a great choice! Montego Bay Airport was easy to manage and the customs process was quick. At the airport...

Hubby and I took a 5 day trip to relax and that was just what we did. We got a suite right on the ocean and could hear the waves all day long. We loved the restaurants and the staff was great. GO TO THE ISLAND. We loved it and it was so peaceful. The staff was great and we...

Spent a week from the end of Feb. and into March. The staff of this hotel are incredible. The property is wonderful, especially if you like small and relaxing with a couple hundred rooms and want everything within a two minute walk from the room. And as usual at a Sandals the beach, , the spa, the restaurants and bars,...

We went to Sandals-the Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay for our honeymoon in February. It was absolutely wonderful. The food was AMAZING and the drinks delicious. The best restaurants of course were the ones you needed reservations at, so do that early, but all the food even at the other restaurants was delicious! We did do excursions so we were...

We've never been to a place like this before, so we have no base for comparison, but we loved every second. For two home grown Iowans, the staff and restaurants allowed us to feel luxurious. My favorite part, other than the total relaxation, is that the staff take time to get to know you and make sure you enjoy your...

Amazing vacation! Sandals far exceeded all of my expectations. Everyone was extremely helpful. Scuba diving was not the Great Barrier Reef but much better than i had expected. Room was stocked with Rum and beer everyday. The private island was neat but kinda got bored with it quick. Pools were amazing but the hot blond on the beach everyday was...

We just returned from a 10 day vacations from the Sandal Royal Caribbean. A 10 minutes drive to get to this resort. We booked a room that was facing the Ocean and we loved it. The breakfast buffet was very nice and the evening restaurant a la carte was amazing, make sure you book early to get in. You have...

Let me start by saying that this resort comes straight out of a fairtale story book. At our arrival at Kingston International Airport, we were quickly greeted by Sandals Representatives and escorted to our awaiting transportation. Though the drive was about 3 hours long, our driver was very informative about Jamica's rich history, which we greatly enjoyed. We were also...

Just got back, and it's long, so bear with me... Pros: all star treatment- as soon as you land, you're whisked to the Sandals lounge at the airport where there is food and beer and you wait for the shuttle to come. When you arrive at the resort, you're handed a cool towel and a strong rum punch before being...

Trip was another success, had great weather, room on the beach, food was very good as usual, and we book for another trip in 2014. The only thing we would do differently is NOT depart from JFK, it is a nightmare, told over 2 hours in immigration line, and not very helpful to get to Federal circle to catch a...
