Great Resort for Those on a Budget!

I brought my wife to Jamaica to celebrate her January birthday on a beach. We went to Sandals in St. Lucia for our honeymoon only 9 months prior. We fell in love with the Sandals all-inclusive experience! Having traveled to Sandals so recently and not having a limitless wallet, I was looking for a budget-friendly option to have the same awesome Sandal's experience. We found just that at Sandals Inn!Sandals Inn (also known as Carlyle) is a very small and quiet resort. There's only one pool, one bar, a couple of restaurants, one fitness room, and an amazing staff. Sandals Inn does NOT have its own private beach. The rooms were average. Nothing special here. I would probably equate the room to about a 3 (out of 5) start hotel room.But the true beauty of staying at Sandals Inn is that you have access to Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Royal Caribbean; all while paying the lower price. There is a complimentary shuttle service that starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 12:30 a.m that connects the three resorts. The shuttle runs every hour at the half-hour (i.e. 9:30, 10:30, 11:30 etc). Montego Bay and Royal Caribbean both have private beaches and additional restaurants and activities. My wife and I spent our days at Montego Bay and Royal Caribbean and retreated to Sandals Inn for a quiet night's sleep. My wife mentioned she would probably prefer to stay at Sandals Montego Bay if we return to Jamaica. Sandals Montego Bay is definitely more trendy, open, lively, freshly renovated. But it's also more expensive.So if you are looking for a very budget-friendly, quite Sandals all-inclusive experience, this may be just the right place for you! The Sandals staff is nothing short of amazing and accommodating! They made my wife's birthday a real treat.

Best Kept Secret!

My husband and I just returned from our second visit to SI. The Staff is beyond amazing. We had our vow renewal ceremony while there and it rained that day. They did everything they could to still make that day amazing for us. Mr. Donovan and all of his staff work so hard to make everyone feel like family. We will continue to visit SI each year. Sadike made the arrival and departure process easy. The bar staff, Ramario, Floyd, and Lamar are amazing. Each and every staff memeber treats you like family. They get to know you on a personal level. The laid back vibe of this resort is exactly what we look forward to each year when we visit.

Sandals Resort on a dime

We arrived at the Inn after a long trip. We had planned our trip so we could stay in MB to unwind a few days and see the other two resorts in the area before heading to SSC for a week. We have been to several other Sandals and wasn't really sure what to expect. Sure the rooms could do with an update but they are clean. We had booked the lowest level room but we did get upgraded to one with a balcony which was nice as we like to sit outside in the morning for coffee. Our air conditioner above the door did leak which did end up getting the carpet at the doorway wet. But, it kept the room cool and I don't run around the resort without footwear so it was not a concern. They have as much packed into the resort as they can in a small area. They had everything one would need if you chose to stay here for a week or longer. The food was good, the drinks were plentiful, and it was a wonderful place to unwind and destress from work. The staff was some of the best we have experienced so far. They were very friendly, and bent over backwards to do what they could to make our stay wonderful. The Manager Donovan is visible most of the time. He is wonderful and would stop by any time he would see us at the pool or during the evening activities. He wants to ensure his guests are looked after right. His staff were wonderful and we really enjoyed our stay. We did go to each of the other two Sandals resorts in MB from the Inn. There is a shuttle that runs between all of them so you are not stuck at the Inn if you crave a little more of a Sandals experience. You just need to plan ahead to make sure you know the shuttle schedule(which is handed to you with your welcome package). So to sum up, we were not disappointed. It was exactly what we needed to unwind. We met some wonderful people. We will return here someday.

Clean but worst resort bathroom ever

We loved the small resort experiance and service so much more than the other sister propertys big flash style but the bathrooms need updating!The staff between the sandles resorts seem to have no real connection or communication for guests services

Extremely disappointing stay !!!!

We arrived for 10 nights on 23 rd December and were extremely disappointed when we were shown to our 2nd floor room.The carpet was dirty, the air conditioning had water running out of it, the curtains had mildew and holes on them and the bathroom badly needed an update!!! Sandals advertise their resorts as 5 star luxury included but this place was far from it. The hotel is across from the beach and the noise at night time is horrendous, so do not expect to sleep unless you have ear plugs !!! Never were we asked if we were enjoying our stay or was everything ok. If it wasn’t for the bar staff / waiters and waitresses who were amazing and friendly we would have wanted to return home early. As we were leaving the manager shook our hands and said thankyou for choosing our hotel, if only someone had shown interest when we arrived !!!
