if there are people out there that don't think Sandals is the ultimate all inclusive then maybe they need a different type of vacation. We have tried many other chains and found Sandals to be soooo superior. We just stayed at Royal Carribean and had the time of our lives. We were surprised at the airport with a driver and...

Me and my wife booked this holiday for our wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday, stayed for one week. Both in early 30s. We booked Royal Honeymoon beachfront concierge room because that was suppose to be right on the beach front with balcony and I thought it would be good to have the service that comes with it.

This was our first experience at a Sandals Resort, or any all-inclusive resort and overall we were very pleased and had a great vacation! The staff was probably the friendliest I’ve ever encountered and we were quite happy with the food and beverages (yes, like many others we drank many dirty bananas…tasted like a banana split)! Yes, the beer was...

We've been spoiled many times before staying in different sandals resorts before from Concierge to butler categories but I must say our most recent trip to Sandals Royal Caribbean was memorable thanks to our Butler Sherry Anne there. Her level of expertise, accuracy and real care simply blow our minds. I would highly recommend this resort for those who enjoy...

My fiancee and I debated back and forth between a cruise, which we've tried once before, and an all-inclusive resort. We opted for Sandals, simply because we've heard great review from friends and the alcohol is included, unlike a cruise. The flights and arrival at Montego Bay's airport was efficient and a nice surprise. We were greeted with drinks and...

Fabulous does not begin to describe the time we had here. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon, we stayed in one of the swim up suites with butler service.

1st time at Royal Caribbean and we were very happy with the choice.
