It was nothing short of delightful. We stayed in the Kensington Building with Concierge service. All service including Concierge, dining, bar, maid service was impeccable. Food was delicious no matter where you ate. Be sure to book the French restaurant way ahead of time. Don't miss the private island. Be sure to shuttle to Sandals Montego Bay for a day...

This was our fourth visit to a Sandals, each time a different place. The weather and Sandals "feel" were both wonderful as expected. Some comments about this particular resort: first, we love the large pools that are the centerpiece of many of the Sandals resorts, but this location does not have the large pool. Second, althought we are a middle-aged...

I recently booked a 7 night stay at the Sandals, Royal Caribbean resort in Montego Bay and it was the best trip ever taken. We booked our stay at the end of November and the weather was great. The resort was excellent along with the food, activities, and accomodations. The trip was set up for us to get married and...

My husband and I travelled to Jamaica on Friday, Jan 18th and stayed until Tuesday Jan 22nd 2013. It was a get-a-way that he and I so badly needed. We took the early flight and arrived in Jamaica at 9:30am and was immediately greeted by the Rep from Sandals at the airport. Within 15 minutes we were at our resort...

We travel and cruise a lot and were invited to visit the Sandals Resort that my parents have visited for 11 years. When we first stepped off the bus onto the property, we knew that we would be taken care of to the fullest. Everyone on the property is extremely helpful, knowledgeable and very pleasant. English language is impeccable by...

Came here for my honeymoon and was our first Sandals experience. Could not have been happier and this is really due to the staff, most especially the entertainment staff!! Kara, Richie Rich, Hollywood, Theodore, etc... are the best! They went out of their way to get to know us, get us involved and make it an overall super fun trip....

Royal Caribbean is quite a small resort with very friendly, helpful staff who make the holiday more memorable. Everyone seems to go that little bit further to make your stay enjoyable. The food is excellent with excellent chefs producing superb breakfasts, lunches and evening meals. We stayed in December and have already booked to return. The sandy beach is quite...

Everything is done to perfection at Sandals. The beach is small but beautiful. You can see little fish swimming around the shore while you sit on the balcony at the restaurant. The pool is immaculate. The food was fabulous. The French restaurant and the off shore Thai restaurant were amazing. You can take a dragon boat out to the offshore...

Firstly, let me say we have traveled to several different countries/resorts over the past 10 years (including another resort in Jamaica), and definitely would say that we are not picky travelers. However, my husband and I and another couple booked this Sandals resort as a special treat to ourselves, since we were celebrating a few 40th birthdays. We booked this...
