Can't Say Enough

Just finished our vacation to Sandals Inn. It was so hard to leave!!! We were made to feel like family from the moment we arrived. Floyd, Romario and Lamar keep us entertained at the bar and always remembered what we drank. Craig and Kimberly kept us well fed at the wonderful Carlyle Restaurant. Navia in the gift shop was there to greet us as we arrived. And Doreen made sure we had a beautiful room. Mr. D who oversees the management of the resort is on top of everything. We were asked on a daily basis if things were ok or if there was anything we needed. If you are looking for a small quaint property with the greatest staff ever this is the place for you!

Great Getaway!

What a great place to visit. Sandals Inn is a very small hotel but you can utilize both of the other Sandals resorts in Montego Bay through their free shuttle service. The staff is phenomenal. Donovan runs a great team of folks. From the moment we arrived Patrick made us feel welcome when checking us in and bringing us to our room, Ashe was fantastic, Cassandra, Larone and Romario mixed awesome drinks and always with a smile. Fitzroy at Nibbles was nothing short of phenomenal! All around great experience and wonderful time!

Great Vacation

Huge shout outs to Romario, Floyd, and Lamar! They were our favorite bartenders and they made our Vacation amazing! Thanks so much guys! The perks of having 3 Sandals resorts in Montego Bay Area is you can stay at 1 and play at all of them. We decided to stay at Sandals Inn aka the Carlyle since it was the cheapest. There are free shuttles that run all day every day to all 3 resorts. ((Also read my review on Sandals Montego Bay for more info)) About Sandals Inn itself: There's 3 small restaurants; Bay Window, Nibbles, and Carlyle. There's 1 small pool which isn't exciting but it's not over crowded and it's quiet which is nice if you want relaxation time. There's 1 small bar where you'll find some games to play and super awesome bartenders. The rooms are very outdated, but they're clean and decent sized. Even though we hung out at Montego Bay nearly all day every day, I would still stay here because of the price and because the staff is so much more friendly and personable than the other 2 resorts.

Jamaica is great!

First time at Sandals Inn third time at Sandals. My wife and I love Sandals and wanted to stay with them again, but the low Canadian dollar made the other resorts cost prohibitive. We did a lot a research on Sandals Inn (AKA Sandals Carlyle) so we knew this would be a bit different then the others we stayed at (Sandals Ochi and Sandals MoBay). We were very pleased with our stay overall. The staff were all amazing the rooms clean, the food great. We stayed on the second floor and had a balcony overlooking the pool as well as the street and public beach. We were really glad to have the balcony as we could sit out there in the am and have coffee and room service breakfast while we watched as the locals used the public beach across the road. There were vendors selling fresh fruit and such. The only complaint about the room was that the bathroom was in need of an upgrade. I heard that the rooms on the 3rd floor have all been renovated. When we book our next trip we will request the third floor. The gardens on the resort are stunning and that is where you will find the bar and stage for nightly entertainment as well as Nibbles snack bar and a reservation restaurant. We had our returning guest dinner here and it was amazing. We took full advantage of the espresso machine by the main kitchen which pumped out great Blue Mountain coffee beverages. This resort lets you experience a bit of the real Jamaica being situated where it is. We used the public beach and it gives you access to deeper water for swimming then the other resorts and the water was even clearer here then the others. I did get asked if I was interested in any Jamaican products but a simple, no thank you, and you were left alone. At times the street noise can be load especially early in the am, I would recommend ear plugs, something that the front desk should have on hand or even supply in the room. I am not sure how the rooms without balconies work, they might be quieter but it likely depends on where they are facing. We also walked down the street to the hip strip and went in a few shops and such and people were very respectful. We shuttled over to the other bigger resorts for most of our activities and beach lounging, there is a shuttle starting at 9:30am. If you scuba dive they will arrange a taxi to take you to the other resorts, as the dive times are 9am. I let the front desk know the night before when I needed a taxi. The only issue with the shuttle is that is breaks at 8:30pm and so getting to the Royal Caribbean for a 9pm dinner reservation is tricky unless you leave super early. We took a taxi from MoBay once and is was only $10. Just plan ahead. Donovan, the new manager for the Inn was excellent! We had an issue with a cancelled excursion and he went out of his way to make up for the inconvenience. You will definitely be made to feel like family at this resort by Donovan and all his staff. We can not wait to go back!

Quaint Resort

Favorite part of this resort was hanging by the bar at the end of the night. It was very intimate and the bar tenders were so much fun. This resort is not as nice as other Sandals Resorts in Montego Bay but you save a lot of money staying here and they shuttle you to the other locations. Then coming back to hang by the bar at night was the icing on the cake.
