We went to a sandals in June of 2012 in the Bahamas and we loved it so much we decided to go to another one in Jamaica. We were a little nervous at first because the resort was much smaller than the one on the Bahamas. But it turned out to be the best vacation we have taken yet. Of...

We just returned from src and we already miss it so much! This was my first time to Jamaica and our first ever sandals stay and it is safe to say we will be choosing sandals from now on. The minute we arrived at the sandals lounge in the airport every one was so friendly and welcoming, we were offered...

This was the best vacation ever!!! The weather was great, food was excellent, the entertainment by far was the best!! They always had games and prizes. They were fun and lively ready to do anything. Just in four days we won three necklaces, a bracelet, a shirt, and a wooden turtle. Our favs were Kara, Theodore, Hollywood and Chico. They...

This was our second visit to Sandals Royal Caribbean, and it was still beautiful and beautifully maintained. We felt the food had improved in the intervening three years -- riper fruits, even better variety of salads, more exciting fish dishes. We stayed in a poolside room with complimentary room service (but not a butler suite), and the room service was...

We had a very bad idea of what sandals was like when we were dealing with the wedding department. They were extremely rude, and unorganized. We were so stressed out before flying out because they still hadn't received out documents for the Jamaican legalization of our marriage days before we flew out. They made me send them additional documents because...

This was our second trip to SRC, and in terms of service, quality of food, and the look and feel of the resort, everything was as tremendous the second time around as it was the first. We love the smaller size of the resort -- it has a much more intimate feel than bigger resorts. You get to mingle more...

This was our 8th Sandals stay but first at this one (Jan 2-Jan 8). This is a small resort but plenty to offer. Everything here is within walking distance. We stayed in the Royal Beachfront Butler suite, was very nice. Bathroom is in the smaller side but nothing that you can't work with. You have your own front porch with...

My husband and I are well traveled, but I have never had such good service and friendly staff as at the Royal Caribbean. Especially Kevin the bar manager along with Corey and Courtney. Nothing was too much trouble, and after one meeting, they all remembered your names, making you feel very special. The food in all of the restaurants are...

We were celebrating our honeymoom. I was skeptical because of some of the reviews of this resort. But I was pleasantly surprised. Our room was in the Kensington building - which meant it was quiet and everything about the room was great. The service, food, ambiance, employees, were all wonderful. We lucked into 85 degree days with a nice breeze....
