Just got back from Sandals Royal Caribbean. Had a wonderful time, the property was beautifully kept. It was small and easy to get around. The beach was not large, but it did have little coves for privacy. Stayed in the Kensington building. It was quiet, and we had our own piece of beach and pool. Never had a problem getting...

What can we say about our stay at this resort except exceptional from start to finish. My wife and I cannot praise enough the staff, the service, the food and the genuine friendliness of everyone we met from the top to the bottom. Because we had more to do with them we would particularly like to thank Dwight, the Night...

We recently returned from our 10 day stay at Sandals Royal Caribbean. We are cruisers and this was our first all-inclusive resort vacation. Now, we are so spoiled!!! We decided to book the Ocean view suite with Butler service and we were not disappointed. (There are actually two butlers, not only "one" as we were told by our travel agent.)...

We visited in November to celebrate a special birthday. What a fantastic time we had! It lived up to all our expectations and we can't recommend the resort highly enough. We had read trip advisor reviews before we travelled and quite honestly the people who complain about the food, drinks and service just must have been on another planet. The...

This is our second trip to a Sandals resort. As always, the service was wonderful - most of the employees seem to truly interested in making your trip comfortable and enjoyable. We especially enjoyed Christina (Thai restaraunt) and Courtney (Cricketeers). This is a smaller Sandals and pretty layed back, which we enjoyed. We did venture over to Sandals Montego Bay...

We spend our honeymoon in the Sandals Royal Caribbean. What a fantastic place, it is a paradise. It is close to the airport. But you don’t notice the planes, they are 2 or 3 per day. Maybe the first day, but that’s about. I have to say that this is our third Sandals. We had been in Varadero & Antigua....

My husband and I vacationed from Nov 23rd to the 29th, staying in the Royal Grande Luxe Semi-private pool category. For a background, this is our 5th Sandals visit. As a returning guest we were always upgraded in the past, but not this time. I was disappointed in this as being told that the resort was not at its capacity....
