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.

Wedding place relaxation

My husband and I were married here. It's a beautiful resort that offers many amenities. Other than the awesome all inclusive setting, there were all great free water activities as well as a glass bottom boat tour that had to be paid for. We loved relaxing on the beach and drinking as we wished, though most drinks were limited on alcohol...not that we needed that the whole time :) We were married on the beach and it was made a special event. Services are available there to get hair and makeup ready. The wedding cake was great, just don't leave it out as within an hour, the ants had hunted it down.

The people are what make Sandals Montego Bay so much fun. The staff is friendly and always accommodating. In the pub Javed and his staff makes sure everyone is attended to and have fun. It is nice that the beach is private, a big plus. Andre has the Oleander restaurant at its best (hello Robert). Water sports are so much fun we liked snorkeling and the tube ride. Our butler Palmer the best! Couldn't help notice Everton makes sure all is right. Trip was a blast thanks Mrs Dawn.

Sandals Montego Bay

Visited Sandals Montego Bay had a awesome time. The staff (Camille, Sharon, Danielle) was wonderful, I should say ALL the staff, just could not remember all the names, the food amazing and NO water down alcohol. The dirty banana drink was excellent. Will be visiting Sandals Montego Bay next year May 2018..

Our room was a beach walkout on the first floor level. We really liked the soaking tub and the overhead ceiling fan outside. You will never hear the word "no" the whole time you are there unless you try to wear sneakers to the fancy restaurant. We didn't even get to try all of the restaurants because there were so many options. There were feral cats around the property- at least 3 that we saw. Do NOT leave any sort of food items in your porch area if you don't want cats trying to eat your leftovers and make a mess. Be aware that this property is directly next to the airport and there will be somewhere around 20 big jets leaving the airport everyday and it is LOUD. The staff makes light of it by waving each plane "goodbye" but we could hear it even in the spa when we were getting massages. There was construction going on while we were there but the property is absolutely beautiful. They staff really tries to be friendly and make everyone feel special. They did this really well- especially the entertainment staff. We hope we can afford to go back again someday. Worth every penny! We didn't even take advantage of all of the amenities and things we could have done but we did a glass bottom boat tour which was great. The food was absolutely delicious and the beach was lovely. The frozen mixed drinks were so yummy. Highly recommend the Chukka horseback ride and swim tour too.

The staff was fantastic! Especially Stacy in booking! Love her!

I love all of the Sandals resorts! I love Jamaica, this was our 5th stay in Jamaica and the food is always wonderful! Room was Nice and cool! Pool was clean! We earned our Silver Sandals Select rewards here. We received a beautiful set of solid silver sandals pendants! Will be working on our next award, Gold sandals!The thing that I liked the least was the gift shop, staff was not friendly or helpful.
