First let me say that we began our vacation in Ocho Rios at Sandals Royal Planation, which is a much more exclusive resort and simply impossible to top...this resort is beautiful, with surprises around every corner...trees, swim up bars...the private island is really fun and exotic...and you are sure to find surprises. The room was not great, however, even though...

Just back from a week at SRC and cannot wait to return. Firstly the staff - without exception they were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and the smiles were huge and genuine. I can only assume that Sandals is the place to work in the Jamaican tourist industry because the quality of the people could not be faulted. The...

The nicest of the three Sandals properties. Also the more expensive option. Honestly, I would stay at the cheapest and take the trolley over daily. The place is really nice. And don't forget to make reservations at all the Sandals restaurants-the food quality is not foodie quality but far exceeds the buffet fare. Suggestion: Bring a big insulated mug and...

our second stay at a sandals property, src, proved to be as pleasant as or our first stay at brc Nassau. The Jamaican culture/pulse is slightly different and once you get adjusted--positive vibrations !! the beauty of the property, lush tropical gardens and pristine beach-front is rivaled only by the warm and friendly staff. We took a day trip to...

My husband and I stayed here for the second time from 3/31/13 - 4/6/13. Our first trip was fantastic but our second trip was even better! We even brought friends this time! The food was delicious; as were the drinks (never empty!) The room was comfortable. I was given one of the best massages ever. I have to say though...the...

This was our second visit to RC and we had a wonderful time and it was still sad to leave after 10 days (did 7 last time and that was worse). The staff were fabulous, the food wonderful, the entertainment excellent, the weather perfect and our rooms were great. We had so much fun meeting new people and participating in...

The resort and all of the amenities were amazing. Beautiful water and view! Only complaint was with the service at the resort. Most of the servers were either lazy or rude. Their attitude and lack of service affected our enjoyment of the resort. Beware of the staff expecting the "under the table" tip. Once they get that then you get...
