They do not answer email...

I have questions about an upcoming stay and have sent 3 emails of exactly the same message and no response. Not a good sign. We have stayed there in the past and it was very nice but I have questions about our next trip and cannot get any response.

Very Nice Resort

Just spent 5 days here (honeymoon grand luxury walkout butler suite in the Royal Sanctuary village). The resort was 88% full, but it was, for the most part, very quiet. No problem getting towels or chairs @ beach or pool. No wait for any water sports, ever. The food is really good. It's close to the airport (10 minutes). You can use (and there are shuttle buses) to two other Sandals nearby (Montego Bay & Carlysle), but we never bothered to check either of them out because we had everything we wanted where we were. The spa is AMAZING. If you're looking for a low key getaway that is pretty easy to get to and won't let you down once you're there, this is probably it. We booked again for next year before we left. I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because we had a few minor issues with the butler service and housekeeping. Nothing significant, but enough of them to irritate us a little. Also, this place has the world's loudest frogs. They come out at dusk and do not shut up until 4am. It's unbelievable. They woke us up every night (and the doors were closed). Next year we are bringing earplugs.

10th Wedding Anniversary

My husband and I visited SRC in February of 2016. We loved it so much that we decided to spend our 10th Wedding Anniversary in July of this year.We stayed in the Kensington Bldg. The room was large and the a/c always kept the room very cold. The mini bar was stocked everyday and with a little extra if we asked. Housekeeping was excellent at keeping our room clean. The only complaint I would have about the room, is the patio was very small. But with the pool right outside the room, it really didn't bother us.We NEVER had one bad meal. I have dietary restriction and never had an issue. The French restaurant was our favorite for breakfast. The returning quest dinner was excellent and we really appreciated the full size bottle of rum in our goody bag.The beach bar and pool bar were always busy and drinks were plentiful. They do have top shelf liquor, all you need to do is ask. It's all out on display, you just need to look. Our favorite bartender is Roderick at the Cricketers. He always made a good drink and kept everyone entertained.My husband and I decided to take advantage of the returning special. We booked our 3rd stay at SRC for May 2018. This will be our first butler room stay.One thing we strongly recommend is the MoBay when arriving at the airport. When we arrived, there was over a 2 hour wait line for customs/immigrations. We zipped right threw with no wait. It took us longer to get our luggage. From the time we landed to our first drink at SRC was less then an hour.Absolutely love everything about SRC. Hasn't disappointed us yet.

Honeymoon Trip

MY husband and I decided to start our honeymoon in Jamaica's over the water bungalows. We stayed for 3 nights before leaving to our next destination. Butler's Alexus, Monique and Nicholas were absolutely excellent. Their service made our stay so wonderful. We enjoyed swimming right off The deck from our room. We also enjoyed a couples massage in our room. The view was so beautiful and we enjoyed the privacy and relaxation. It was wonderful having breakfast right on our deck over the water. Drinks and food were available 24 hrs Everything about the room was perfect and we definitely look forward to going back. Especially loved the fact that you can see water from glass floor even at night since it had lights beneath. The only thing is we Wish there were more options of native Jamaican cuisine available on the resort. We only got to eat Jerk pork once from Jerk Shack and it closes early. That was the only disappointing part of the trip. We did get to eat Ackee and fish for breakfast since it was on breakfast menu. Other than that, we dined at the Thai restaurant, the Pub and had a private dinner for 2 on the beach. Our entire stay was wonderful and we highly recommend you request butlers Alexus /Monique/ Nicholas for your stay. We definitely will request them for our next stay. I recommend this place to everyone seeking a romantic vacation

Amazing Vacation

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Sandals Negril and for our one year, decided to go back to Sandals Royal Caribbean. The resort was beautiful and very well maintained. The food was great and the drinks were awesome. We enjoyed all aspects of our trip here. What we really like about Sandals is the way the staff goes out of their way to make sure you are treated well and have everything you need. One staff member in particular, Warren, went above and beyond for us. Warren would find us on the beach every day, deliver us cold Red Stripe and the daily newsletter, and make sure we had everything we needed for that day. He did an amazing job at making sure every need/want we had was met. He truly made our vacation better. Overall great place with great people.
