If you’re going to go to Jamaica, why not stay at “Jamaica’s Leading Resort”? That’s what the World Travel Awards named Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay. From its perfectly manicured gardens to afternoon tea, this resort has a decidedly British feel with a relaxed atmosphere that reminds you you’re still in Jamaica.
Located just east of Montego Bay, Sandals Royal Caribbean offers 227 rooms on 15 acres. The property includes 24 room categories, so there’s something for every taste and budget. For a unique experience, try the Sim Up Crystal Lagoon Honeymoon Suite where you can swim directly up to your room from the resort’s river-style Crystal Lagoon pool. If you’re interested in something even more exclusive, the over-the-water villas are for you. Located just off the resort's private island, you’ll find floating water hammocks and private glass floor with a view of the Caribbean's finest turquoise waters and rich marine life. And with the devoted attention of your own butler, your every wish will be attended to.
Of course, dining is a staple of Sandals Resorts and Royal Caribbean is no exception. On property, you’ll find 8 dining options, including Le Jardinier, an outdoor French dining experience, and Royal Thai, situated on the resort’s private island. Nightlife is a staple in the Caribbean and this resort doesn’t disappoint. True to its British heritage, the resort offers The Cricketeer’s Pub and four other bars and clubs. If you’re in the mood for something different, not to worry. With Sandals “Stay at 1, Play at 3”, you’ll also have access to all the dining and entertainment options at Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Inn.
When you’re at Sandals, your biggest decision of the day is choosing between laying around or playing around. Actually, you don’t have to choose. If you want to lay around on the beach all day, there’s no better place than Jamaica, but at Sandals, so many water activities are included, you’ll never lack for something to do. And if you want to get out and see the island, the world-famous Dunn’s River Falls are just a short ride away.
From the Georgian style Great House lobby to the weekly chocolate buffet, Sandals Royal Caribbean is unique in so many ways. Spend some time at this beautiful property and you’ll see why it has a special place in the hearts of every one of its guests.
This week’s featured resort is Sandals South Coast. Formerly Sandals White House, this resort features 372 rooms and suites across 20 room categories. The property is divided into three distinctly designed villages with French, Italian and Dutch themes. Best of all, each room faces the beach, making Sandals South Coast an all ocean view resort. If you’re looking for that extra level of service, choose from one of 32 butler-service rooms. And for those seeking a more exclusive experience, there are 12 unique, over the water bungalows to choose from.
f the things that sets Sandals South Coast apart is its location. Situated on Jamaica’s lush and untouched South Coast, guests of the resort get a flavor for Old Jamaica. Just a 75-minute transfer from Montego Bay airport, this resort is far from city life. In fact, its 50 acres sit within a 500 acre nature preserve.
If you’re looking to relax, this resort has everything you need, from a newly refurbished Red Lane spa to Jamaica’s largest zero-entry pool. The pool is a destination in itself. Just steps away from the resort’s two-mile beach, it’s framed by a sprawling Italian piazza with a romantic fire pit. For those seeking a bit more action and adventure, take advantage of scuba diving, windsurfing, wake boarding and more. When the sun sets, the party begins with all the nightlife you can imagine.
As with every Sandals resort, dining options abound. There are nine restaurants on property, including the incredible Eleanor’s and seven bars, featuring the over the water Latitudes Bar.
There’s a reason why Sandals South Coast has been named “Caribbean’s Leading Honeymoon Resort” for two years in a row. Want to know more, check out this video and let us know if you have any questions.
