tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Sean H : Saint Louis, Missouri

Hotel was very nice and modern, our room was as big as we figured it was going to be based on the online pictures. I do wish the bathroom shower and vanity was a bit more roomier but it was decent nonetheless. Loved the balcony, overlooked the ocean and was able to see the sunsets and sunrises--we almost switched to the walkout first floor but glad we stayed, there was more foot traffic than expected. Pools were great, food was very good--only wish that there was a few late night options for food past midnight. The staff was absolutely amazing, they made it fun and were incredibly helpful and accommodating.

Best Possible destination Wedding & Honeymoon!

We just returned from getting married and honeymooning at Sandals Royal Caribbean and had such a wonderful time. We opted to stay our first 5 nights in one of the over water bungalow's for our wedding and the first part of our honeymoon. They are so worth the extra money!! Our Butler's Monique and Alexus were beyond excellent!! They took absolutely the best care of us, including standing up for us during our wedding. Everyday there was Champagne/cocktails waiting for us, afternoon snacks at 5:00 pm, baths drawn, dinner reservations made and they kept track of all our excursions. We didn't have to think the entire time were were there!! Monique was so helpfully while I got ready for our wedding ceremony, including helping me get into my dress and offering Champagne when my nerves were getting the best of me. She escorted me from the island in the private water taxi and made sure that everything was perfect for me. Alexus stayed with my husband to make sure he had everything he needed as well. Before the wedding, Sanjay, our Wedding Coordinator was very helpful with bringing the final details together and my hair/make-up and pedi was expertly done by Shemeka (spelling?) at the Spa. Together they all made our destination wedding perfect. The Ladies, Kenesha (Asia) & Rita that helped us schedule our plans before we got to the resort were extremely professional as well. If you are looking for the perfect destination wedding, this is the Place!! We moved over to the main land for the last 5 nights of our trip and stayed in a swim up Private Butler Honeymoon suite. Our Butlers there, Rayo and DuWayne were excellent also. We mostly dealt with Rayo, who was very accommodating to us for everything. We felt very spoiled by the end of our trip. Monique & Alexus (our first Butlers) checked in with us throughout the trip, which made us feel even more special. We came away from the trip with the feeling that some of the most beautiful and happy people live in Jamaica. It is going to be our first choice to return in the future. Just a note as well, Island Route Tours handled all of our excursions and we really enjoyed the Dunn's River Falls climb, Reggae Boat cruise and Mountain Biking/River tubing excursion in the countryside. All of Island Routes employees and drivers are just beautiful people!! We would definitely do it again!!

Amazing Stay

We had a great time. It was relaxing and wonderful and we didn't want to come home. We had never done all inclusion or Sandals,so it was a treat. We wanted to mention a few people who were excellent and hope they are told along with their management: Simento walked us to our room and was kind every time we saw her. She asked us numerous times if we were enjoying our stay and was very accommodating. Our wedding photographer was Tevyn and so sweet. Photographer Sian (Jonny Bravo) was excellent! Such a kind man and had such exuberance and energy when stopping to converse. Shanique, the wedding planner, did a wonderful job accommodating our wedding needs. She also was so helpful and did whatever we asked. Some of our amazing servers were Diedra, Feona, Jonikia, Big Bird and Tamara. Aldon, the boat driver for snorkeling offered to take us to different snorkeling spots and was informative and easy to be around. We loved Dean (aqua center) and he took the time to teach us to sail. He was so wonderfully helpful. We loved the nighttime entertainment. The host was amazing and funny (Can't remember his name). The island routes desk wasn't exceptionally friendly so we used the front desk for most things we needed to know. But Christina, our tour guide from Dolphin Cove, was wonderful.The bar was always very busy and sometimes was difficult to get a drink, but they were working very hard and I believe understaffed but were doing the best they could. The food was a bit more fine dining than we like but what we had was amazing. We usually went to the pub and ate because it was more our style. We wished their was more options for dinner like a buffet or even quick sandwich shop, because the inside dining took a bit to log for food. The buffet breakfast and lunch at the Regency were our favorites.The only true negative experience we had was the aqua center over at Montego Bay. We went over for the day to knee board and tube and the driver and helper were rude and we decided not to stay. As we were coming up, another couple said they experienced the same thing with the boat driver and aqua center. They were nasty and yelled. He yelled at me for not doing it exactly right. It was very clear they weren't happy with what they were doing or that we were there to ride. We decided we def won't be visiting the Montego Bay resort, for fear of having to deal with those workers our entire stay. We much preferred Royal Caribbean where we were staying. We met a photographer Will Wisdom over there and he was very nice and helped us with info we needed.Overall, we will most likely return!

Sandals Royal Caribbean

The setting of SRC is gorgeous. The beach is exceptional. We found the food to be typical of a resort of this caliber. There were a few inconveniences. The pools were out of towels on several occasions. The staff, while courteous, were shorthanded at times. We ended up going to get our own drinks rather than wait for service. Bottled water was not available at all locations.
