Sandals Royal is the best! This trip was my 49th to Royal. From the first trip to this one, the service and hospitality is always magnificent. The employees are always friendly and eager to please the guests. Management is exceptional. The food is out of this world and the accommodations are so comfortable. I won't go anywhere else!!

We stayed at this resort from May 11 to the 17. This was our first trip to a Sandals resort, but we have stayed at all the Beaches properties owned by Sandals. This was also our first trip to a resort without children. We were greeted at the airport by Island Routes who took us in a private car to...

This was our first time at an all-inclusive, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I truly loved this experience, and I would definitely go to this resort again as well as try a different Sandals/Beaches. Sandals does not really promote this aspect, but I honestly think for everything you get, it is a good vacation value. Here are...

I enjoyed every second of the trip. This was our second couples/group trip and I can't wait for the third. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating. Extra shout outs to Courtney at the bar to Chiko/Hollywood from the event staff. My only negative is that we were not able to make reservations at some of the restaurants. This was...

This was our third time in Jamaica, but first at a Sandals. We were there for a week for our honeymoon. I went in expecting to be blown away, but wasnt. It was a nice resort but I expected more from a Sandals. The Plane noise is minimal and you barely notice it. Plus its only 10 minutes or so...

This was my 3rd time at a Sandals resort and it was an awesome time. We do a group trip every few years and Sandals always seem to over deliver. The staff is extremely nice and remember you.
