Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort – Montego Bay, Jamaica

An adult only, all inclusive resort offering both land and overwater suites, the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort is a luxury escape that caters to those seeking a relaxing and romantic getaway. With a Tahitian theme in the Caribbean sea, this resort offers something a little different along with the usuals you can expect from this famed line of resorts.

The overwater rooms wow with a personal pool, outdoor shower, private deck, large living space and tropical color scheme. Rooms rates are also pretty acceptable, especially for all that you're getting. With that said, it is important to note that room rates are higher for stays that are only 1 or 2 nights long and cheaper per night for stays that are 3 nights or more. Outside of each room, guests will find a plethora of activities to choose from within the resort's grounds as well as right outside. Reviews are quite good, with many guests stating their love for the food, amenities and the rooms themselves. If you're looking for a tropical escape that isn't far from the US mainland, this resort just might be your best fit.


The Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort is located a few minutes drive away from Montego Bay, Jamaica in the Caribbean.

What the reviews say

As part of the popular Sandals line of resorts and hotels, it's only expected that this resort lives up to its name. And thankfully it does on many fronts. From the vast variety of dining options available including both French and Thai cuisine to the beautiful lushness of the resorts grounds and gardens to the rooms themselves, over and over again guests rave about their experience here. Another plus that is loved by many is the kid free atmosphere that truly allows couples of all ages to enjoy a relaxing stay along with adult friendly amenities including the on-site spa. If you're willing to pay the nightly rate, it seems that this all inclusive experience is well worth it.

Getting there

To reach the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort you'll first need to fly into Sangster International Airport located in Montego Bay. After landing you'll find the exclusive Sandals lounge in the airport to check in. They will put you on one of their shuttle buses within a short time, and then it's a 10-minute ride to the resort itself.
