    We have been traveling to the Caribbean for over 10 years and the first time staying at a Sandals. While the resort was nice the butler service was abysmal and the dinner service (not food) was lacking in most restaurants except for the Italian. Not sure if it was due to our butlers having too many clients to provide for but I have had better service at other resorts. Also they say don't tip but if you want service from your waiters or waitresses you better tip to get what you want. Once we started tipping the service got a lot better.

    The resort was very clean! The Jamaican staff was energetic and extremely fun and friendly. Service was great. Really enjoyed all of the food choices, eating areas, music selection, and decor. We also enjoyed the private beach areas. We could relax and party.

    Lovely people Jamaicans are. I don't drink. The food at the french and Italian places consistently very good. Food at Bombay went from superb to horrible on 2nd trip. Don't get a room near stage. Adios

    Nice .... but not worth the money

    We just returned after a 4 night stay at the resort. We stayed in room 4311 in the Kensington building. The room is nice but the bathtub/shower combo is strange. Our view was beautiful, but seeing the rundown house at the end of the property was definitely an eyesore when walking in or out of our room. The food was good, the drinks were aplenty, the service at the beach was slow, it was easier and quicker to get a drink at the bar by yourself then wait for a server. Maybe they are under staffed, I don’t know? But we expected more from a Sandals resort. My overall rating of Sandals is just disappointing. I’ve been to several resorts all over the Caribbean, they all have their good and bad points, I just expected more for the steep price we paid. It’s practically double the price of other 4 star resorts we’ve been too. So don’t be fooled by the hype of the Sandals name. There are other resorts that just as fun, and beautiful that are half the price. Do your homework before booking

    Perfect Vacation

    This is our 3rd stay at Sandals Royal Caribbean. All the staff are wonderful, from Karla in house keeping to the entertainment staff including Crazy Warren, Elmo, Trixx and Crystal Champaigne to the excellent Butlers Steve and Nicholas. Food is fantastic and there efforts to keep us safe during this COVID time was very well thought out and appreciated. We always come back to SRC because they make you feel at home!
