Just returned home from the best Vacation ever!! I had the pleasure in staying at the over water villas. I was completely spoiled by my personal butlers Akeem and Shanetta. I had Shanetta majority of my stay. She was very attentive to us our entire stay. I mentioned just in passing that I love the bath tub because I can...

Got married here. Came back for our 1st anniversary. Both times I'd booked a week and ended up staying for 2. Heading back for 2 weeks in Janauary. Great place, great staff. Definetly do the butler thing and you have no worries at all. Swim up rooms are killer.

All inclusive, including scuba diving. We went scuba diving seven times in five days. The service was not up to par. Twice our room was not made up when we returned after being out of the room all day. The resort was not full, but when we made reservations at the specialty restaurants, they acted like they were full and...

You don't lose out on vacation time driving hours to the other side of the island - Price: great rates for all room categories, including their newly renovated Butler rooms - We had amazing service from our...

Sandals royal carribean was so amazing I didn't even realize there were planes flying overhead! Our room was quiet, private, and always clean (basic room). The staff was so caring and catering to our every need! My boyfriend had never been to an all inclusive resort and was actually not looking forward to the vacation, however after the first walk...

We stayed at the Sandals Royal Caribbean the week of the 14th for our honeymoon and we could not have had a better time. We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet walkout room with butler service and it was everything we could have asked for. Our butlers were Nigey and Hughill and they were amazing. There is so much to...

This review is primarily for first time Sandals/Jamaica visitors, because we were caught off-guard in a couple of instances. We stayed in the Royal Caribbean Resort in the middle of May. I firstly want to stay the staff at Sandals was excellent, especially the Butlers, who are mainly why this review is as high as it is. However there are...

Thank you for taking the time to review Sandals Royal Caribbean. We truly value the opinions of our customers and we apologize if we did not fully meet your expectations. Kindly permit me to clarify that the luggage porters at the airport are not employees of Sandals, therefore, the "no tipping policy would not apply to them", please also not...

This was not our first stay at a Sandals resort. The OWB looked fantastic. I wished we could have booked one! One thing I wanted to mention is that we heard from several of the staff there that Sandals is going more to an adult only resort instead of a couples in love resort and that vibe was definitely felt...

My husband and I went here for our honeymoon last week. It rained 50% of the time, but we still had a wonderful time. We had the honeymoon butler suite with the balcony tranquility tub and it was a wonderful room. The view was of the gardens, but it was fine with us. The was a bit smaller than expected...
