Review: An absolutely AMAZING vacation !!  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Grande St. Lucian: (St. Lucia)

Arial View :: We travelled to this resort on May 18th, 2003 and stayed for one GLORIOUS week. This resort really is paradise! I apologize in advance for this lengthy review, but I wanted everyone to know the details of this resort. I hope you find this review helpful

We travelled with Air Canada ...
Review: Best Place we've ever been  Traveler Rating
Royal Plantation - Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

View of Hotel :: My husband and I have been married two years now, but we still remember our honeymoon at Beaches Royal Plantation like it was yesterday. We've never been somewhere so beautiful with so many nice people. Anything we needed they were there for us. We highly recommend staying here whether it be a ...
Review: Sandals Dunns River Is Amazing!  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Dunn's River: (Jamaica)

Arial View of Pool :: We went to Sandals Dunns River for 8 days in June 2004 for our honeymoon and we loved absolutely every last minute of it. The resort is heaven, the room (a Grande Luxe Oceanview) was great, the pool (largest in Jamaica) was incredible, and the staff was beyond helpful. But anyone can gush about ...
Review: Fantastic  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Dunn's River: (Jamaica)

Arial View of Pool :: My wife and i just came back from a 7 day all inclusive vacation at Snadals Dunn's River and loved every moment we spent there. The people there were great, they put on awsome shows and entertainment. The food was fanstastic. We tried every resturant and have no complants about any of them. We ...
Review: A place to remember  Traveler Rating
Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa: (Jamaica)

Beach View :: It is a difficult place to fault. The food was great the accommodations clean, spacious and quiet. The staff were courteous and in most cases, no more than that. If you do not wish to chill out, don’t go. The nightlife is more or less non existent and everyone seems to go to bed no later than 2300 ...
Review: Butler service comes to Sandals Ocho Rios  Traveler Rating
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

Arial view of Beach :: By Herb Rubinstein

This fabulous and famous resort known as a top wedding spot now has a new feature: a unique Butler Service that is being offered in their Concierge Suites.

I recently had an opportunity to experience first hand this new service. Arriving at Sandals, Ocho Rios one is ...
Review: A Great Vacation  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Grande St. Lucian: (St. Lucia)

Arial View :: We had a great time in St Lucia and enjoyed our stay at the Grande St Lucian. We chose the all inclusive package and felt we got our monies worth. It was nice to go and eat,drink and do activities without pulling out your wallet every time. The food was plentiful and filling. The choices were ...
Review: Resort taxi Ripoff - Good Resort  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Dunn's River: (Jamaica)

Arial View of Pool :: At the resort there is a posted list of Taxi costs to various places (i.e., $28 to Ocho Rios). Only resort authorized taxis are allowed into the "compound". My wife and I decided to go into town 5 miles away, and paid the taxi $35 includeing tip for a round trip; he was to pick us up later. When we ...
Review: Sandals Royal Bahamian  Traveler Rating
Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa: (Bahamas)

Sandals Cay :: My wife and I stayed at Sandals Royal Bahamian from 9-19-09 to 9-26-09. Before you read on, some information about us so you can judge the validity of this review. First, we travel a lot and are always unbiased when we do decide to write a review. Secondly, we are in our early 40’s and have done ...
Review: Would I come back? Definitely!  Traveler Rating
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

Arial view of Beach :: Hi, my name is Michelle and I'm a Sandalsholic. I'm a three-peat user and I can't get enough of it.

My husband and I travel to the Caribbean about once a year and we always have a great time at a Sandals resort. We arrived in Ocho Rios on the 18th of December and once we retrieved our luggage, ...
Review: My favorite all inclusive resort  Traveler Rating
Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa: (Bahamas)

Sandals Cay :: My boyfriend and I had just spent the most amazing week at the Sandals Bahamian Spa in Nassau Bahamas. We have never stayed at a Sandals resort before and will now only do Sandals resorts. At the airport, the Sandals booth was very efficient and got us oriented on where we needed to go next. We ...
Review: Most Romantic Resort  Traveler Rating
Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa: (Bahamas)

Sandals Cay :: Wow! My Husband and I just got back from Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort and were so pleased with our stay that I wanted to post a review. We have been to two other Sandals Resorts (Sandals Grande in Saint Lucia and Sandals Royal Carribean in Montego Bay, Jamaica) and Sandals Royal Bahamian is ...
Review: 40th wedding anniversary  Traveler Rating
Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa: (Bahamas)

Sandals Cay :: This was a the best anniversary we every had! The people at Sandals was awsome!!We can't find words to tell everyone what a great time we had. We did not want for anything, all I had to do was think of something I wanted and it was there it was unbelieviable. We can't wait to return. This was our ...
Review: Sandals Antigua did it right  Traveler Rating
Sandals Antigua Resort: (Antigua)

Beach View :: I would recommend this resort to anyone. I have been to many AI's and Sandals Resorts around the Caribbean, but this one was the best by far. The food was good, the employees were great, and the resort was clean. I can't wait to go back to this resort ...
Review: Great Experience  Traveler Rating
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

Arial view of Beach :: Let me start off by saying that if you have never done all inclusive, and are debating on whether or not to do that, just do it, especially for a honeymoon. Here at Ocho Rios, they have everything you need. I never picked up my wallet the entire stay.

As for the resort itself, it was wonderful ...
Review: This is a beautiful resort  Traveler Rating
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

Arial view of Beach :: This is a beautiful resort. The people who serve you are very friendly and welcoming. they try to go out of thier way to please you. A very clean and well kept grounds. Food is excellent. There is plenty of activites that come with this resort, sailing bycicle peddal boats, snorkeling to name a few ...
Review: Fantastic Vacation  Traveler Rating
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

Arial view of Beach :: We traveled to wonderful JA in December 06. The trip to the resort is long, about 2 1/2 hours. The roads are bumpy but you stop half way for a rest. You have the option to purchase food and drink but I recommend bringing some with you because this could be expensive. Check in was a breeze. We ...
Review: Beware of Sand Fleas - but a great place  Traveler Rating
Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa: (Bahamas)

Sandals Cay :: The facilities were great and the restaurants even better. There is a private island off shore for more privacy. Lots to do - had a great holiday ... except for the sand fleas on the beach. They don't tell you, but take bug spray with you. It took 3 weeks for my bites to stop itching ...
Review: Spoiled Rotten!  Traveler Rating
Sandals Halcyon St. Lucia: (St. Lucia)

Beach View :: I'm not sure how my husband and I will ever be able to stay at any other all-inclusive resorts. I only regret that Sandals doesn't have property in the Yucatan Penninsula because that is where we hope to go next and I doubt anything will compare to the experience of Sandals. First off, the ...
Review: Very Impressed  Traveler Rating
Sandals Beach Resort & Spa - Negril: (Jamaica)

Arial View :: Airport Lounge: Clean/Welcoming/Efficient
Shuttle Transport: Smooth, 1.5hrs, x1 stop for whatever your needs; informative driver
Resort Welcome: Cold towels, champagne, rum punch, and great info about resort from luggage staff.
Standard Room: Clean, very comfy bed, fridge-stocked w/jc, soda, ...
Review: Pleasantly surprised  Traveler Rating
Sandals Antigua Resort: (Antigua)

Beach View :: We had stayed at another Sandals previously and enjoyed it, so we were looking to return to a Sandals property. Two days before we left we found this site and the many unfavorable reviews. Ugh!We went to this Sandals with much fear and trepidation.

I'm happy to report that Sandals Grande ...
Review: Great Anniversary Vacation!  Traveler Rating
Sandals Antigua Resort: (Antigua)

Beach View :: My husband and I just celebrated our 2nd anniversary by going to Sandals Grande Antigua and we had a great time! We were upgraded from one of cheapest rooms to the rondoval with a private pool and 24-hour room service for free and this was the highlight of the trip! Without the upgrade we wouldn't ...
Review: Poor Service  Traveler Rating
Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa: (Bahamas)

Sandals Cay :: We arrived at the resort at about 5:30 p.m.
There were no towels in the bathroom. The bathroom itself was very much in need of a renovation. The toilet was not secured to the floor. We reported it and it was repaired. The room was very old and used looking. We had a concierge suite. At all 3 other ...
Review: St. Lucia Grande Sandal  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Grande St. Lucian: (St. Lucia)

Arial View :: Stymied Staff
I would imagine Sandals management had no choice but to cap the tipping to avoid corruption. All inclusive means the local help is unable to work extra hard and earn additional monies through tips. Convenient for those that don’t want to carry a wad of singles in their shoe but ...
Review: never again  Traveler Rating
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

Arial view of Beach :: the date we were there was january 24 thru the 31 of 2005 BUT there was no 2005 for me to select.

Ok, shall I start with false advertizing and misrepresentation? The sheet and information we were given to select our room is false. we selected a villa with private pool and jacuzzi, including ...
Review: Disappointing experience  Traveler Rating
Sandals Regency St. Lucia Golf Resort & Spa: (St. Lucia)

Arial View :: I had high expectations for Sandals Regency in St. Lucia, but was greatly disappointed in the overall experience. Upon arrival at the airport I found the Sandals 'stand' outside by the taxis. I was packed into a little van/bus and had the worst ride of my life in this public transportation van. One ...
Review: Big dissapointment!!  Traveler Rating
Sandals Regency St. Lucia Golf Resort & Spa: (St. Lucia)

Arial View :: We just spent a week at this Sandal's and must say we were dissapointed. First let me point out that St Lucia is a beautiful island, it will leave you breathless. Do try the Gondola tour in the Rain Forest it is worth every penny.

If your stomach is a bit queasy the 1 hour ride from the ...
Review: Not Quite as Expected  Traveler Rating
Sandals Antigua Resort: (Antigua)

Beach View :: I have heard for years that Sandals quality is phenomenal and was really looking forward to finally getting to stay at one. I thought this property was gorgeous. The beach was pristine and the overall ambiance was everything we expected. However, the service was quite lacking which was a huge ...
Review: Great staff, best dive. Bad food. Room has ants, too noisy.  Traveler Rating
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

Arial view of Beach :: When reading this review, please take into consideration that
1. We stayed at the Oceanfront rooms on the Riviera side
2. I am rather spoiled and have high expectations of food and services.

Bottom line:
Sandals Ocho Rios is not worth the money you’d have to pay, for the same price we pay ...
Review: Sandals Antigua: veiled mediocrity at a 5-star price  Traveler Rating
Sandals Antigua Resort: (Antigua)

Beach View :: My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon at Sandals “Grande” Antigua (April 2007) and, believe me, there is nothing grand about it. I will not go on and on but please DO NOT book your vacation here. The way I describe this resort is “veiled mediocrity”. Their grounds and their website are ...
Review: Honeymoon Trip  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Grande St. Lucian: (St. Lucia)

Arial View :: We were so excited to finally go on our honeymoon. After months of planning and paying almost $7,000 for a 10 night stay at the St. Grand Lucian we were very dissapointed with our trip. The beach was very small, the local vendors constantly harassed the guests to but shells or "drugs", the ...
Review: Below expectations  Traveler Rating
Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa: (Bahamas)

Sandals Cay :: My wife and I went to the Royal Bahamian for our honeymoon. We were so excited after looking at the brochures and all of the pictures and descriptions on the internet. The resort and the experience did not live up to the descriptions nor our expectations. We paid for concierge ...
Review: Antigua needs help  Traveler Rating
Sandals Antigua Resort: (Antigua)

Beach View :: We stayed at Sandals and other resorts in the Caribbean so this is not our first stay at an all inclusive resort. We booked this trip to the Sandals in Antigua for seven days. The new Mediterranean Village, our room, the views, the grounds, the pool and the beach area are beautiful.

The ...
Review: Honeymoon Let Down!!!  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Grande St. Lucian: (St. Lucia)

Arial View :: This was the worst all-inclusive my husband and I have ever stayed in. We spent a ridiculous amount of money on this trip and were extremely disappointed!!!! We have gone to other places and spen far less and they were amazing!! There were no activites, the hotel was very old and when it rained ...
Review: Save your money!!!!  Traveler Rating
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios: (Jamaica)

Arial view of Beach :: I was so disappointed in all of it. We went for our 5th wedding anniversary and I so wish we had just gone on a cruise again. From the lousy tasteless food they served to the generic liquor they poured to housekeeping stealing money from my room. I found nothing luxurious about my trip.

Several ...
Review: Stay Somewhere Else!!  Traveler Rating
Sandals - Grande St. Lucian: (St. Lucia)

Arial View :: My wife and I decided to do a destination wedding in St Lucia. We went for one of the top of the line rooms, what they call a Rotundo, complete with a pool you can jump into from the living room, and a personal butler. The price was well over $1,000 per night, but was SUPPOSED to be all inclusive ...
Review: AWFUL PLACE- DON'T GO!!  Traveler Rating
Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa: (Bahamas)

Sandals Cay :: So let me start off by saying a Honeymoon is something that is suppose to be hassle free and for some a time of luxury. This was unfortunately not the case for us. I have visited many All-Inclusive Resorts, regular resorts, hotels and even motels, so I have a really good grasp on traveling and ...
Review: Vacation that never happened  Traveler Rating
Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa: (Jamaica)

Beach View :: What horrible customer service from Sandals Resorts reservations. My wife and I booked a package vacation to Sandals Whitehouse in March 2011. We received confirmation #'s via Email and went to the airport all packed in May to find that the airline confirmation number did not exist and our names ...

    Beach Towels
    If you are staying at a small hotel you'll need to bring your own. Larger resort provide them. You may also want to bring a couple of washcloths if you're staying at a small hotel, they don't always have them.

    Water Safety
    Make certain that sports equipment, including scuba equipment, that you rent or buy meets international safety standards. If you use a beach without a lifeguard, exercise extreme caution. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death for Americans in the Caribbean. Do not dive into unknown bodies of water because hidden rocks or shallow depths can cause serious injury or death. In some places, you may need to wear sneakers in the water for protection against sea urchins.
