We absolutely loved our first experience at Sandals Royal Caribbean & will definitely consider any of the other Sandals locations (but this one was awesome!) for future vacations. The Sandals company has thought of everything. There is something for everyone, the service is outstanding, and everyone is so friendly. Also, one thing I was surprised by was the food. The...

This was our 3rd time visiting this property and not our last.We arrived Feb.23/2013 and stayed for 7 wonderful days. Everything was perfect.

My husband and I just returned from what we considered the ideal honeymoon experience at Sandals Royal Caribbean. Before we arrived, we were upgraded to a Concierge ocean view room in the Kensington building. Some people mention this building is "out of the way" but the resort is small and quaint so nothing seems too far out, and we actually...

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The resort is great, we made some new friends and the staff made it one of our best vacations. Special thanks to Theodore Sheckleford and Tobi Storm for making us feel like family and the great entertainment staff for making us decide to book another Sandals vacation.

My husband and I chose this particular Sandals resort for our honeymoon after our travel agent highly recommended it. We chose an all inclusive vacation for this trip because we really wanted to relax, be pampered and just enjoy the all around convenience of having everything in one place and pre-paid. THE GOOD: The food was amazing. Better than any...

We arrived at this beautiful place with high expectations! Even though the small beaches did not offer long walks, the rest met our expectations. We had an awesome time with Tremaine surfing the waves on the hobbie cats and managed to see several sting rays swim under our paddle boards. Snorkeling is a must even as a beginner as the...
