Our Opinion

The Sandals Montego Bay is a great luxury hotel that holds a variety of top-notch amenities. There are plenty of buffet and a la carte options available and the resort is staffed by incredibly pleasant and attentive staff. There are also plenty of activities and daily entertainment. You'll never find shortage of things to do in Sandals Montego Bay! Located on the largest private beach in Jamaica, this is the original Sandals all-inclusive resort! Being close to the airport is noisy at times, but you do tend to get used to it after a couple days. This resort is a bit more lively and active compared to the Sandals Royal Caribbean which is a few minutes away. The Sandals Montego Bay resort tends to be better priced, so if you are looking for the Sandals experience but are also watching the budget, this resort or the Sandals Carlyle might be your best bet.


Overview

Situated on 26 acres of lush tropical gardens, this exciting resort fronts the largest private white sand beach in all of Jamaica. A paradise resort boasting some of Sandals' most lavish suites and delightfully appointed rooms, five gourmet restaurants, and much more. As the flagship resort, Sandals Montego Bay can aptly be described as vibrant and upbeat with a spirit that soars high above the rest.

The very first Sandals resort to open its doors and set a whole new bar for luxury and romance in the Caribbean, Sandals Montego Bay still continues to completely and utterly captivate couples' hearts. Born, back in the days when only the rich and famous wintered in the tropics, the resort's original incarnation was as the glamorous Bay Roc Hotel. A Mecca for the jet-setting crowd of that era, the Bay Roc, known for its breathtakingly exquisite beach, was designed by renowned American architect, Edward Durrell Stone, who also created New York City's Radio City Music Hall and Museum of Modern Art.

Location: Sandals Montego Bay Resort is located on Jamaica's largest private beach, next to the airport and 10 minutes from the center or Montego Bay.

My Honeymoon Experience

Arrived and the room we booked was not at all what we paid for. This resort had put us in a very busy traffic area with a bar right outside our patio. Tried to get resolved with front desk to only be given the run-around from one person to the next all claiming to be managers...After the first 24 hours and having to get really angry they moved us, but not without a fight. It took calling the travel agent, CEO and a number of other people to get our room changed.. Over all service was poor - room service did not deliver the first time called, second time it took over two hours to get cold food once delivered. The on-sight restaurants claimed to be booked up every single night. OVER ALL this place sucked and I would not advise anyone who wants to have a carefree vacation or honeymoon to waste you hard earned money on Sandals Jamaica.

Outstanding Vacation !

This is the first time I have ever visited a resort and met so many people that have been there multiple times. After being there a couple of days you understand why. The staff is very accommodating and the grounds are beautiful. You will see reviews talking about the airplane noise since you are so close to the airport but it’s not as much of an issue as it would appear to be. They actually take delight in waving goodbye to the visitors.

Not Up To Expectations - over-hyped

The ground level beachfront room with a 'tranquility tub" was located adjacent to the bar (conversation, clinking glasses could be heard from the room), on a busy foot-traffic path with full view of the tub, (no Tranquality there!) and trees and bushes blocking any view of the beach or water.What should have been a simple request to move to a more suitable room was stonewalled for a day and a half and handled rudely by local staff. After one night in that room, we were relocated to a room on the third floor. Room service was terrible. Used it three times. Once the order never arrived at all. Wait times ranged from 40 minutes to an hour. There was construction going on during the day in the beach area involving loud machinery......Perhaps Sandals feels that honeymooners have low quality expectations. In our case, they are wrong.

Best vacation ever!

From the very moment we got to the resort, we were treated like their most valued guests. They greeted us with smiles and a cool cloth for our faces. They took our bags, got us all checked in and walked us to our room. The room was so beautiful and cool. There was a bottle of champagne on ice for us. Everyone from the housekeeping, food service, front desk to the staff grooming the beaches were always happy and friendly. We were always greeted with a smile. Our safety, comfort, happiness and fun was priority to the Sandals staff. There were lots of fun adventures available and plenty of activities and fun at the resort. If you just wanted to be a beach bum, that was okay too. The staff were always around to get you anything you wanted. The food was amazing! The colors of the flag are Black for the beautiful people, they are hard workers and always happy, Green for the beautiful land and Yellow for the sun. We love Jamaica and will be returning soon! Thank you Sandals!
