January winter break

This was our first experience of a Sandals resort and we were not disappointed. We stayed for 2 weeks in a Honeymoon Butler Suite in the Buckingham block. We were on the first floor with a balcony which gives greater privacy as people walk past the patios on the ground floor. The room was lovely. An old fashioned setting but comfortable and with all mod cons. We were set back from the beach but close to all amenities. There is some aircraft noise as the resort is only 20 minutes from the airport. There is a good beach with plenty of sun beds. Our butler, Kenisha, was absolutely superb, The butlers will reserve your sun bed, book trips, set up surprises in your room and will do anything you request. However, other patrons did not get the same service we had. The beach bar was great - just a shame it closed at 6pm. The barman Rohan was fantastic at entertaining us in the early evenings. The food was great but beware if you don't like spicy food. Work was still going on at the Island, but this did not spoil our enjoyment or use of the facilities there. Bar service on the beach was great too. We were not too impressed with the atmosphere in the Piano bar, and the evening entertainment could have been better. The early local acts were the best. The beach party was worth going to. The staff were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Steve even drove us to Sandals Ochi when the taxi forgot to pick us up for our trip and brought us back afterwards!I would return here again, but probably won't as we like to visit different places in the world. A lot of people come here time and time again.

The butlers made our trip!!

We stayed at Sandals Royal Carribbean in Montego Bay, Jamaica for the week of Valentine's Day 2017. It was absolutely incredible! First, we stayed two nights in one of the Beachfront Honeymoon rooms without a butler. It was very nice - on the ground level with a pool, jacuzzi & small, private beach right in front. It was at the far end of the resort, so there was lots of privacy and it was away from the activities (just a couple minute walk) - could be a good or bad thing depending on what you're looking for (I loved it!!). The next two nights we stayed in an the Over the Water Private Island Butler Villa with Infinity Pool. It was out-of-this-world amazing! I couldn't believe how beautifully done these honeymoon suites were. I felt like we were living a billionaire lifestyle in this 1,800 square foot bungalow, and it was honestly very hard to leave after the butlers truly made us feel right at home. Alex and Christopher went out of their way to accommodate our every need. They booked our dinners, activities, brought us room service at the drop of a hat! When we arrived Christopher gave us our own cellphone to call him or Alex on whenever we needed. I was so happy one night when we came home from dinner and they had laid out jewels on the bed that spelled "one love" with rose petals all around it, mood music going, and champagne on the table. Every time we would come back from an outing, our fridge would be restocked and there would be a delicious fresh snack waiting on the table. When we didn't want to go out one night, Alex offered to cater us to our very own eat-in dinner, with each course coming out at the perfect timing. I have nothing bad to say about these two - if you get the chance to go to this place, you have to request them! Our last night we stayed at the Romeo & Juliet Walkout Butler Suite with Patio Tranquility Soaking Tub. It was a very new room and right in the middle of everything going on. That night was Carribbean night (I think it was called), which is every Saturday, so they had live fire dancers in the lawn right outside our patio. It was so fun! Our butler that night was Sheldon, and he was also fantastic. We never wanted to leave the resort!!

Valentines Week Getaway

This was our third visit to Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort. Sandals always delivers a superb experience. Their resorts are ultra-romantic, all-inclusive and highly halcyon.The Sandals staff is amazing. They make you feel like you are a VIP. This resort will pamper you. Everyone we encountered make us feel welcomed. The entertainment staff always worked to ingratiate and accommodate us at every turn. Whether it was Oshine "Energy" or Crystal or Anna " Bubbles" on the entertainment team, everyone welcomes you.During this trip, we enjoyed a butler team ( Nicole/ Andre) Both butlers were absolutely wonderful. On Valentines Day, Nicole surprised us with a rose-petaled bath for two along with Champagne and candles. One day, we treated ourselves to a cabana on the beach for the day. The price of your cabana include your own concierge. They will provide all of your drinks, snacks and lunch for the day. Our concierge was Monique. She was very accommodating. She provided anything we asked for - whether it shrimp cocktail, lunch from Mariners or any drinks from the bar.Sandals has always been a staple vacation in terms of romance. We try to visit this resort every couple of years. Sandals mean top-notch services, romantic gardens, great food., nightly entertainment, island-themed parties. You can also enjoy beach volleyball, aqua volleyball, aqua exercise with Robin in main pool area. Or. . . Simply enjoy yourself by doing absolutely nothing. We highly recommend this romantic couples resort.

Fab !

We arrived after a week at Sandals Ochi and what a difference ! ....our room wasn't ready however when our butler pointed it out we loved its the Balmoral building over looking both quiet pool & small beach...orientation showed us that this resort is small but perfectly formed...Our room when we got in there was perfect....everything you would expect and more...We stayed here in Feb 2013 and it's still beautiful !The private island is easily reached by regular boat...both for a day of sunbathing & snorkeling...or evening meal in the Thai restaurant...We enjoyed all our meals however hot meals served on cold plates was disappointing ...(hence 4 rather than 5 )We went over to Sandals Montego Bay on the round trip shuttle....nice and more lively for those who want more action...We loved where we were and would recommend if you want a resort based quieter place...great staff...Stacey made fab Margaritas...and seemed to be everywhere !...Also try soft serve ice-cream in a glass with rum cream poured over...delicious ! Planes do go across and out of Mo Bay airport....we didn't find this a problem ...but it is a bit noisy...Smoking areas for those who do with seating....many smoked on patio areas...Also smelled a bit of 'herb' being smoked ..although we weren't offered any....Entertainment was fun and enthusiastic...We met some lovely people...both staff & guests....we felt very well looked after...
