Just returned from Jamaica and stayed at the Sandals Royal Caribbean. Had been to Jamaica before but only on a cruise and that was to Ocho Rios. Was a little skeptical about returning because of all of the peddlers but thought we'd take a chance. Our travel agent recommended this resort for a number of reasons. Great location - only...

We have traveled to Sandals before and knew what to expect, however, the rooms are a little dated. The hot water was either extremely hot, or extremely cold, and it varied every 10 seconds. Many mosquitoes and bugs in the room at night, so make sure to turn any outside lights out when the sun goes down. Cracked tiles and...

This was our first trip ever and we have spoiled ourselves by choosing a Sandals Jamaican vacation. I'm pretty sure nothing will ever come close in comparison. The hotel employees are second to none and went to great lengths to make sure we were always comfortable and had everything we needed. We had a medical issue and ended up having...

I have tried many All Inclusive Resorts, or so they advertise that they are. Sandals is truly the only All Inclusive Resort I have found. Others say they are All Inclusive but when one goes to the bar they will quickly learned that they will not get waited on unless they showed that they have money in hand for a...

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandals - beautiful place, food was delicious, drinks very good too. I would recommend this adults only resort especially for the "over the top" customer service. Everyone was very friendly, greeted us with a smile always. Originally booked for a third floor, i asked for a ground floor (old knees) and was very quickly...

This was our first big vacation as a couple and it was more than memorable! The Sandals Royal Caribbean was a beautiful resort. We were on the first floor - the beach was just steps from our door. Our room was clean and the refrigerator was well-stocked with soda, juice and water. We spent lazy days on the beach, enjoyed...

Our trip was AWESOME!! First time to Jamaica and first time to a Sandals. Food, room, employees were all wonderful. I want to mention the following employees: Komeisah and Karon for a fantastic massage on Sandals Cay, Adrian (bartender at Mariners Grill), Gino for great pizza, Andre and Nicolas (wonderful concierge service, answered all my questions and gave excellent service),...

My husband and I recently returned from Sandals Royal Caribbean and I wish we were back. We got married at the resort and it was absolutely amazing. Everyone was ridiculously friendly and we felt soooooo pampered. We did get Butler service which was totally worth it. There were two occasions in which we came back to our room with a...

We recently stayed at the SRC in Montego Bay for 4 nights (11/20/12 - 11/24/12). We had an amazing experience. The service was exceptional, starting from when we stepped off the plane. The ground transportation was easy to find and we were escorted to the bus within minutes of arrival. After a short (10 minute) trip to the hotel we...
