My husband and I planned our first Sandals as well as our first Jamaica vacation at the Sandals Carlyle. This was done on a bit of a whim and I did no more research than skimming a few (mostly positive) reviews of the resort and marveling at the affordability. This came to bite me as I soon realized upon arrival...

I traveled to this resort with five college friends. We were an all female groups celebrating our 40th birthday year. This was my first Sandals experience, and it was great. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly, and they seemed to take tremendous pride in their work. We were especially delighted by the following: 1) Cordelia and Anastasia at the...

My husband and I traveled here for the first week of December, 2013. After booking, and reading some of the negative reviews, I was very apprehensive about this resort. We arrived early in the afternoon. The trip from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios was fine. The driver pointed out places of interest and shared a little history of the island....

Sandals portrays this resort as one of the premier properties in the Caribbean, but falls short of these expectations on many levels! Location is beautiful, but rooms and facilities are tired & dated. Beach is small & strolling on the beach is not an option Food is the worst we've experienced & certainly not the calibre of 5 star resort....

Well this is just a little bit of paradise. But if you are lucky enough to go there make sure you get either Fernando or Jazelle (and preferably both) as your butler. They are just super guys and they made our holiday very special.

This was our first Sandals visit and it was an excellent experience. Service was absolutely excellent. All the staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating and just generally genuine people. A few staff members stood out for their exceptional service. Lemoy showed particular consideration to our family and was always checking in with my brother and I to make sure that...

My husband and I went for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Riviera Beachside Village; I recommend the beachside because most of the views. We loved the lunch options and pool located at the Great House Village, but the restaurants, entertainment, and scuba diving are located on the beachside. Rooms: Our room was very clean...

My review is listed as a 4/5 because this is a Sandals and there is no such thing as a bad Sandals resort. That said, with this currently being the cheapest resort that Sandals has to offer, you definitely get what you pay for. The Negative: The layout for this resort is very poor. The butler villas, main building, and...
