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.
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.
We enjoyed every minute of our trip to Sandals Montego Bay. There was so much to do if you wanted to, and you had the option to do nothing. The highlight was the evening of our private candlelight dinner at one of the gazebos. We were treated like royalty. I highly recommend this resort. You will not be sorry!
From arrival on a Thursday morning until departure on Monday night the entire Sandals staff were an absolute delight to go along with a fanstastic resort. I don't know to start to describe how wonderful our mini-vacation was at this fabulous resort. Gorgeous ocean views, excellent food, water sports, great bars, helpful & dedicated staff and a beautiful room to end the day with was ideal. I did not have one complaint during our stay other than some minor construction going on to update some expansion to the resort. Well worth the money and a quick 3 & a half hour flight from JFK (NY) to paradise.
The resort is beautiful and the employees are friendly and helpful. They did us two HUGE favors after my husband and I had a rough trip getting to Montego Bay, one of which is specifically stated on their website as something they don't provide! ( I think I should refrain from posting exactly what it was so people don't think they can ask for it)The beach is very nice, we always found chairs, and staff would comb the beach asking guests if they'd like anything. Every once in a while they'd walk around with a tray of cookies to offer.Housekeeping was always done, although there was some inconsistency on when, and what got done. No complaints, and we always had what we needed--I just like schedules, haha! Island time, mon.We were there for a destination wedding and I recommend it if you're thinking about one! There is currently construction going on, but it wasn't inconvenient except once when we were talking to the front desk person while jackhammering was going on. Oh well, progress is good!
Jennifer in house keeping, Melisea (supervisor?)Sashana, Kayon, Terry Ann, Donald, Kendrick, Akeem, Oraine, Jermaine at the barsRobert, who is the greatest waiter of all at the OlieanderCandice, Aleko(?) both who were in charge of entertainment on the beach (dancing etc)Every one of these people made our experience out of this world. There are still more whose names I just can't seem to remember. Words can't express how much fun they made our stay. Sandals Montego Bay will become a frequent destination of ours because of the people!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Sandals Montego Bay in March this year. This was our first time visiting Jamaica and we had such a great time! The people and the culture are really what made it. We loved the "everyt'ing gonna to be alright" and "one love" mentality along with the reggae throughout the day and amazing dance moves! The resort was nice. We stayed in the new block of rooms. Our room was modern and bright, the bed was super comfortable, and our view of the ocean was second to none. Waking up to that view with my fruit plate and coffee in the morning was my favourite part! Paying extra for this upgrade was definitely worth it for us as the non-renovated rooms are a bit dark and out of date which we feel would have affected our experience and we appreciated having room service. The tub on the balcony was awesome with the ocean view as well - a little piece of heaven!We also loved the free watersports which were included! We went snorkeling every day, tried the catamarans twice, and went tubing behind a boat in the ocean! This was huge value for us as we didn't need to leave the resort to do these things - they were right in our backyard. We also had a catamaran cruise to Margaritaville included in our stay which was a lot of fun! We have some dietary restrictions for gluten and dairy. For the first few days we found it difficult to communicate these to the team at Sandals. We would either get something without gluten but with dairy and vice versa. Once we were able to speak to the proper person at the buffet, they made us the most amazing seafood chowder special for us. They even made us brown rice to go with it and worked with the pastry chef to get us desserts we could have too. We couldn't have been happier and really appreciated the team making this special exception for us.I gave this resort a 4 because for the price we paid the value for an all-inclusive is more in Mexico where we had gone before. This resort could use some upgrades to its facilities, buildings, rooms, restaurants, spa etc. We paid about $1K more than we usually do in Mexico and for a 5 star resort in Jamaica we got about what a 4 star would be in Mexico. We usually love to go to the spa for massages when we are on vacation but the prices at this resort were astronomical for these services and the spa wasn't particularly noteworthy...booking an appointment was also challenging and they did not offer any discounts. The best part of this resort is the beach. It's absolutely stunning and perfect. The water is clear blue blue blue!! I would try another Sandals in Jamaica as I believe they have a newer more modern one as well.
