Our Opinion

With only 52 rooms, the Sandals Carlyle offers a relaxing ambiance in a small but very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. This resort is small in size but large in value, a great way to experience Sandals with out breaking the bank. Guest have exchange privileges at the 2 other Sandals resorts nearby, Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Royal Caribbean.


Sandals Carlyle is a quaint and friendly resort where no one is ever a stranger for long. Located across the street from a small public beach, this resort combines warm Caribbean charm with easy access to Montego Bay's cafes and nightlife. Complimentary transportation is provided to Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Royal Caribbean where guest have full exchange privileges. Sandals Carlyle is definitely a great spot for couples who enjoy intimate resorts.

Location: Located across the street from the beach in Montego Bay, 10-minute drive from the airport.

Winter trip south.

We stayed at Sandals Inn as the other Sandals were booked. We recommend the Sandals Inn for its quaintness and location. Get up in the morning take the short shuttle to one of the other Sandals. Have breakfast and enjoy the amenities. The beauty of Sandals Inn is the small appealing feeling of a quaint lil hotel by the sea. We got to know most of the travelers staying there as each night we'd come back to the Inn for a night cap. Late dip in the pool, etc. We enjoyed being able to walk downtown. It's completely safe. Yes, you will get asked to buy weed. Just say no and walk on. Never felt threatened at all. We enjoyed the shops and visiting Margaritaville. Most everyone were very friendly. Also, the Inn was a great value. Negatives - the hot tub was not working and the breakfast is very simple. The other resorts have a much better dining selection and we shuttled right over to enjoy them. Definitely will visit again.

Sandals Inn---the best kept secret in Jamaica

My partner and I just returned home from an amazing trip to Sandals Inn...hadn't been in a long time, but we were not disappointed. Sandals has the best staff, service and FOOD, of any place that we've been (we travel a lot!).The staff really make the difference here; they go the extra mile to make sure that everyone is well taken care of, and having a great vacation. BIG SHOUT-OUTS to the service staff at the Carlyle restaurant (Cameal, Kimberly, Julia and Craig), the chefs at the Carlyle (Robert and Kaon--aka Mr. Nibbles), and the bar staff at the Sunset (Lamar, Floyd, Eric, and Romario), and last but not least: the rec staff (Travis, and Daniel). This is by no means, a complete list of the great staff. All of these people work incredibly long hours and are very dedicated to making Sandals Inn the best experience that they can. Incredible!! :)Take advantage of the 24/7 room service (breakfast on your balcony), and the shuttle service to the other 2 Sandals properties for the beaches (Sandals Cay at the Royal is quiet and full-service). Also, it is worth allowing Shawn (at PhotoSnaps) to take pictures---though quite pricey to buy them, you'll be amazed at his photographic talent.We plan on seeing everyone again, same time next year!!! Thank you all so much.

Great Vacation At Sandals INN (carlyle

This Place is Very special but not for everyone. if you are looking for Big Giant pools Sandals has plenty of other resorts to chose from with Big Pools . We stayed feb 25th to March 4th The staff is amazing .When we come back to Jamaica we will only stay at the Carlyle . Travis and Daniel made sure there was always something fun. Lamar ,Floyd,Romario made sure whatever we were drinking was perfect every time. And Eric helped out in the bar area too and always a perfect gentleman. Julia worked in the Carlyle restaurant and her smile was always bright and her service was over the top. This wonderful staff made our stay the most memorable as if we were already home. We enjoyed many conversations with all the Staff and the exchange was wonderful every time . When we arrived back to our Real home we immediately went out and bought a Jenga game we had so much fun playing with the staff. Our vacation was perfect we will return! This is Right down the Street From Montego Bays Hip Strip just a 10-15minute walk. or a 5 minute taxi too

Love Jamaica

So let me start by saying this is our 3rd Sandals trip, and our 2nd to the "Inn" ( although it will always be the Carlyle to those that love it) . So it's a quaint 52 room old world Jamaican inn , located at the end of the " Hip Strip" across from a public beach. Yes it does show its age in some ways, however it is the most affordable of the three Sandals in the area. If you want big and fancy go to the Montego Bay or the Royal Caribbean instead. However if you want to stay for 12 days for the same price as 7 at the other two this is your place. The staff is what really makes this place place shine. The size allows people to know you by name . You will get to meet people and get to know them ( hell we ran into couples we met here two year ago) . Age of the building aside, it is impeccably clean. The grounds are extremely well taken care of. So before you go and listen to the reviews of people that trash the Inn, let me say this, the Inn has the highest % rate of returning guests in the Sandals chain. So really at the end of the day yes the shuttle a schedule can be a pain at times, but if you can add three or four more days to your vacation a little inconvenience is worth it as far as I am concerned, after all you only sleep in your room lol. So hats off to Doreen and ALL her staff! Looking forward to our next trip to the Carlyle
