Having chosen Sandals because of a recommendation by family, myself and my fiancé booked 10 days here and were eagerly looking forward to it for months and months! We had never been to the Caribbean having chosen to spend our longer vacations in Asia. We were impressed on arrival at the airport as we were escorted to the Sandals lounge...

This was our 3rd Sandals stay since 2009 and our first time in Jamaica. We stayed Jan. 1-8, 2013. We have mixed feelings about this resort and are not sure if we would stay there again. Arriving at the airport and having the Sandals lounge with snacks and drinks was a very nice touch. This was not available at our...

Overall I would have to say that this is a pretty good resort. I will give the good and not so good points. Good: - very short trip from the airport..this is a big plus. - excellent staff...probably the best we've experienced staying at many other resorts - nice updated room (Kensington Building) - has quiet pool/beach areas as well...

This was our 11th stay at a Sandals resort, our 2nd at the Royal. We enjoy the small, intimate size of this resort, and personal attention. It is our observation that the swim up room pool as limited sun and stays ice cold always, making it not worth the extra money in our opinion. O'brien Gordon from sales gave us...

From the moment we arrived at the airport in Montego Bay, the Sandals team was ready to help. We were ushered into a lounge with drinks (Soda, Juice, Beer), snacks and restrooms. The shuttle was there in less than 10 minutes, ready to take our bags and us to Sandals Royal Caribbean. It was a short ride to the resort....

I was here for about five days and had mixed feelings about the resort. For me, the best thing about the place was that the diving was included. I don't think I've seen that anywhere else, and it's great. The diving was the real thing; the locations were great and the guides really knew what they were doing. Many of...

I had read all of the reviews and thought that we would be assured a decent experience. I can honestly say that our trip far surpassed my expectations! We arrived and were quickly transported from the airport to the resort. The grounds are beautifully maintained...beautiful flowers abound! Our butlers, Jason and Khalil, were both available to greet us and Khalil...

We stayed here 01/17-01/23. Our experience was great and we lucked out with an amazing room right on the water. Room 4116 was in our opinion, and just about everyone that walked by, the best room on the resort. I think our experience would have been much different if we'd been anywhere else. The resort is small. I mean small....

Wow is all I can say! Stayed here in September in a Grande Romeo and Juliet Honeymoon Swim Up with butler service and oh my gosh!!!! The room was simply amazing! Nice sitting area with comfy couch.
