This was our 4th Sandals resort and we are always happy. Each resort offers something special that makes it unique. This Sandals has an island. The staff at Sandals are always amazing and the drinks flowing! It is 8 days of paradise and NO STRESS. We love the fact that there is NO TIPPING and nothing cost unless you decide...

As long-time customers of Sandals (13 paid weeks, one free week) since our honeymoon at the Ocho Rios property 24 years ago, we have seen or stayed at virtually every property. I can honestly say our recent trip to Royal Caribbean was among our top 3 Sandals experiences. First, to all those who complain about plane noise, lack of a...

Came back last week from a 10 day vaca at Sandals Royal Caribbean. We had been to Sandals Whitehouse and Antigua the last 2 March breaks. Interesting to compare. We very happy with all but Royal Caribbean was different due to the smaller size. Doesn’t have the large long beach of the other two, but we felt it was made...

This was our first Sandals experience, and my first experience of All Inclusive. Transfer from the Airport was smooth and took barely 15mins. Check in was a bit of a blur due to tiredness from the 9 and a half hour flight, but the rum punch you are greeted with certainly gives you a kick! My girlfriend was initially disappointed...

My hubby and i have recently returned after one week at SRC....we had expected this to be the same or better than our other visits to Sandals at Grand Pineapple in Antigua and Halcyon Beach in St Lucia but i have to say that I agree with stoneybroke01 that we were disappointed. The holiday was to celebrate 30 years of...

Wasn't sure what to expect, especially never having been to an island. We couldn't have been more pleased with the resort itself and the staff. Weather was gorgeous, as was the view from every location within. We stayed 6 nights all of which were more than entertaining for us. Plenty of activities all day, all night and of course the...

We decided on Jamaica for our 10th Wedding Anniversary a year ago. After friends went to Royal Caribbean and visited Sandals Montego Bay where we had originally booked they convinced us to change locations and we are very happy we did. Yes, RC is close to the airport, but most resorts on this island are going to have some air...

My boyfriend and I just got back from Jamaica this past weekend and we cannot keep quiet about how much we loved this trip! We wanted a vacation that was all about relaxation and paradise, and that's exactly what we got here. The grounds at Royal Caribbean are beautiful; it's a little bit on the small side, but if you...

Returned today but will never forget the outstanding service experienced at this facility. If you are looking for complete care and are in need of a butler, you would be doing yourself a diservice if you don't demand Adia and Florence; they are excellent. They anticipate your every need and go above and beyond the call to please! The two...

Since we've returned to the Royal 12 consecutive years , that should tell anyone reading this what we think about Sandals Royal. The food, activities, and especially the staff were outstanding. Okley, Shadae, Tashawn, Eric, Verna, Odane, Tremaine, Adrian, David, Alrick, Mauvette, Shaq, Karla, and too many more to name here were just a few of the employees that made...
