Sandals Inn

Montego Bay, Jamaica

The hotel

A small and intimate resort, where couples can enjoy pampering and attention. So if you fancy your favourite cocktail ready and waiting for you as you stroll up to the bar this is the place for you. The peaceful, laid-back feel adds to the romantic ambience, which is enhanced by a host of intimate spaces, both indoors and outdoors, in the lush tropical gardens, allowing you to hide away together should you so desire. When you do want to get out and about, a bus shuttle to nearby Sandals Montego Bay or Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island allows you to make use of their facilities during the day and enjoy the entertainment or the 17 different dining options in the evening.

First off the airport experience was not very accommodating I was told to wait 5 minutes to get to the resort then a call was made for the resort as I walked into the lounge, no instructions were given beyond follow the driver, and I was not told to take my bag which was brought to me after. the vehicle I was escorted to did not have enough space and some had to squeeze in the back because the driver was expecting less people. The guy who checked me in got my name wrong multiple times after I pronounced it to him Was escorted to a ground floor which window faced the pool and entrance the curtains were stained, the sheet had a stain on it, there was no filter curtain, so either you were in darkness or wide open with a clear view inside the room the shower fixture were rusty and the head had lime scale the sink did not have a plug and you could have see the grim in the drain, the spout for the pipe splashed water every where in the sing (we did make a report and it was fixed) the ceiling fan did not work Requested to change rooms from the first night however they said there were non available to change on the 3rd day I saw a roach on the bathroom, and later in the evening, waking up to use the toilet saw two more huge roaches coming out of the bathroom tub at this point I could not stay in the room request a change and was moved to a room on the second floor which wish was much better the biggest disappointment was the value for money the amount spend could have gotten better for less and though it may have been less than the other Sandals resorts the value does not add up for the multitude things that were wrong the staff was very friendly, the chef who made me omelettes was awesome, the servers at the restaurant were great as well. and the house keepers did a great job every day. We visited the other resorts which was great but it felt like where we stayed was neglected Also I was told that there was a sandals departure lounge which I never saw. Read less

Overall it really wasn’t that bad. Being out 1st time for it was way much smaller than we were use to. Didn’t like the idea of no elevator and being on the 3rd floor wasn’t so great. But the restaurants and food were great.

We enjoyed this resort. It needs a wee bit of updating, the staff are superb and it offers a more relaxed stay experience than the larger resorts. Special thanks to Jason, Camillia, Dominique and all at the restaurants, the staff were helpful and friendly. Food was good and all of the staff made us feel welcome.

Spent plenty of time on the www looking for a nice place to stay in Jamaica. My husband and I were so happy we selected Sandals. There was always something to do and and the food was great. It was a good experience and we will return.
