Great place to unwind, water is clear, food is wonderful, rooms are very nice, variety of areas to eat, swim and drink. The staff is very friendly and always offering suggestions. Private island is clothing optional.. Which was a surprise! Not our thing..

I'll keep it simple on here. We had our honey moon here in 2009 and we have been going back at least once a year since. Every time we go the staff surprises us with a little something new and special. Food is great, staff is great, and the rooms are great. It is a smaller and quieter Sandals resort,...

My wife and I went on our honeymoon to the Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay last week and had a great time. The place itself was very clean and even though it is not huge it definitely has enough options to not have to repeat yourself. They have about 7 different restaurants so you can have a different dinner option...

Stayed here from May 28-June 6, and all I can say is that it was perfect honeymoon bliss. Everyone at the resort always had a smiling happy face and a welcome hello when you walked by. The penthouse room provided amazing sea views, and our butler Flo was wonderful. Even Sherry Ann was incredibly helpful even though she wasn't our...

I can't say enough about the staff at Sandals Royal Caribbean. They make you feel like family and go out of their way to make sure you are having fun. I read many reviews before going, and the resort could use a little more maintenance. There was a missing lock on our door, but we called the front desk and...
