First experience with Sandals and it was great!! My husband and I spent five days at Royal Caribbean and we were sad to leave! The room, food, and entertainment were unforgettable. We ate more on this vacation then we ever have and not one bad meal. The room was clean. The drinks were great and they kept them coming with...

Just stayed at this resort earlier this week and it was FABULOUS! Everyone was so helpful and friendly. The playmakers were very energetic, especially Ladon (aka Chico) and DJ CD. We were greeted by the Resort Sales Manager, O'Brian & he made our stay perfect. I highly recommend butler service because not only do you get a fabulous room, but...

This was our second vacation we had experienced at Sandals Royal Caribbean. This time we were celebrating our Honeymoon. We booked the deluxe beachfront suite. We had a nice second floor room which overlooked the main beach area and looked right out to the private island, I think we were in the Birmingham building. The room and bathroom were kind...

We booked a 7 night stay in the Kensington block. An entire wing of this building is undergoing renovation. We had the "pleasure" of watching the cats, birds, and bugs help themselves to these rooms every evening when we returned from dinner. They leave the doors wide open (front and back) 24/7 while they renovate (very creepy at night). This...

We stayed at Sandals Royal Caribbean for seven days. It was our seventh all inclusive and our worst experience. We have stayed at a five star resort before and it was truly worth the five star rating. We expected something close to that from Sandals since they are suppose to be a five star and are so expensive. Even at...

What a wonderful experience! From the time we landed we were greeted and escorted to a private waiting area. It only took minutes before we were off to the resort and everything was very organized and our vacation started when we stepped off the transport. Our room was beautiful, only steps from the ocean. Each person who passed by you...

I usually write these reviews within minutes of returning home, but I really had to ponder this one! We love Sandal's (this was our 5th stay since 2007), but we would have to rate this 5th of the 5 Sandal's stays that we have had. Keep in mind that I am simply comparing Sandals to Sandals in my judgements. Our...

For those of you living on Trip Advisor prior to your trip or prior to your booking your trip, know that I can relate. I did the same thing because the vacation is expensive and I was worried having never been to an all inclusive before. Let me start by saying that my husband and I are in our early...

We booked for our honeymoon. We reserved a concierge level honeymoon beachfront walkout suite. With a very stressful wedding it was awesome to be greeted with a genuine smile.

My wife and I have been regulars at Royal since 1991. It is close enough to the airport so that you don't spend your whole day traveling. Although it is small compared to some of the other Sandals resorts it is comfortable and convenient. Monday is a short can drive away if you like to shop. The grounds are always...
