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.

The Ads were deceiving. The property needs major upkeep performed. The only saving grace was the ability to use the other two resorts Montego Bay and Royal. those two resorts met and exceeded our expectations

You get what you pay for, don’t expect the Inn to be sandals worthy. Needs carpet and room updates. The pool was leaking for the last two days. Staff are doing the best with what they have. The new steak house has a five day waiting list in Montego Bay. If you want relaxation, no crowds, because most people just sleep there, and are on a budget, it’s the cheapest way to go for transport to all three resorts. Public beach across the road is slammed with locals 24/7. Montego Bay has the best beach, the royal seems a little more upscale. We went to the royal two times and all deck chairs were full. People put towels on to reserve them, there should be some sandals policy where people can remove them. Most food at all returants were good, Carlisle not so good. No champagne at breakfast because some employee didn’t turn up. No fridge refills of wine or beer three times from a one week vacation, just didn’t seem the same as last year. Carpet and bathrooms are terrible in the room 105 we stayed in. We had a 175 spa credit we didn’t know about until we checked out that morning. Also wasn’t invited to the returning guest dinner on tuesday evening. The sun beds at the inn were uncomfortable compared to the other resorts, they were thin and used. Pool needed repairs on the cracks. Read less

Very nice property but room was very dirty. Mold around air conditioner, mold in bathroom, dirty and worn carpet, cobwebs, none of the furniture matched. Bathroom floor was never mopped. Cracked and broken sheet rock. Very unhappy with the decision to stay here.

We stayed at the Inn last year & thoroughly enjoyed every minute so we decided to go back this year. It was not the same. We had no hot water for over 12 hours, phoned the desk to complain & was told we are aware of it but nothing else. We ordered room service that night because we couldn't shower before dinner & it was a disaster...... took over 1hr 15 minutes for 2 salads(1 with no dressing) a soup(with no spoon to eat with) 2 sandwiches (with cold fries & had to wait for 1 of the sandwiches because they forgot it) to be delivered. When we got up the next morning there was still no hot water or explanation of when there would be & I went through the proper steps to complain on site & had no response the entire time we were there. It was not as good as our previous trip . We left with no intentions of coming back to the Inn again. Read less
