The hotel

Built in an island style, the resort seems to blend in wonderfully with its environment. Situated on a long stretch of white sand beach you can spend endless hours indulging in water sports or simply lying back with a good book. For absolute privacy, choose one of the Beachfront Hideaway Butler Villas, set on a quiet stretch, just steps away from the white-sand beach. Enjoy five Star Global Gourmet™ dining options, and on top of those you can sample the eateries and facilities of the neighbouring Sandals resorts. With popular entertainment choices, including beach parties and cabaret nights, Sandals Montego Bay is one of Sandals' liveliest resorts, attracting a younger crowd.

My wife and I just returned from our 4th stay at this resort. As always, the amenities were first class but it's the staff that truly sets this place apart. My wife enjoyed her visit to Red Lane Spa. Janel not only gave her a deep tissue massage but she also treated her sun-burned shoulders, which were almost healed after her session. At breakfast, Kadian always greeted us with a warm hello, Romero made sure my wife's gluten-free toast was ready shortly after our arrival each morning, and Dwight always made my omelets with a big smile. Akeem at the pool bar was always friendly and attentive. The waitress at Butch's, which is a great new restaurant by the way, was also extremely nice. I apologize that I forgot her name but I believe it began with "La". The waitstaff that oversaw the main pool and the beach area were so attentive and kind as well. It's impossible to remember everyone's names but it is the staff that makes us want to come back each and every time. Thank you again for a memorable trip, it won't be our last! Read less

Staying at Sandal Montego Bay was a exceptional vacation experience. The employees bend over backwards to make sure you enjoy your stay. Being an all-inclusive means dinning and drinks are included and everyone get a break. Staying in Montego Bay allows you to travel between 3 Sandals resorts. Never a dull a moment.

This was our 3rd stay at a Sandals resort and honestly the best service we have received! ALL the staff were friendly, helpful, and genuinely working to make your vacation the best it could be! Our favorite playmaker Rajesh gets all the kudos for making our stay so much fun! The dance party at the beach on Thursday was awesome - there should be one every day! We had fun playing games and had so many laughs! The new Latitudes bar is the best spot on the resort. Rajiv the bartender was super nice and very accomodating! And a big shout out to Patrick who took us on a private boat tour into town and was super helpful. The beach is gorgeous and the grounds of the resort are beautiful. Such a peaceful setting. The food was amazing!!! Cucino Romana has the most delicious steak! The sushi at Soy was fabulous and the escargot at Bayview was out of this world. The reservation system needs to be redone so that you can book it before you go. Would be easier. Not sure why you can't get a reservation when half the restaurant is empty. But overall - such a wonderful trip and thanks to all the staff who helped with birthday arrangements - it was a 40th birthday my husband won't forget! :) We'll be back for sure. Read less

At Sandals Montego Bay, service and hospitality are not just benchmark phrases, they are their way of life! Our vacation started with a big welcome home hug from Satchwell; a down to earth, really happy to see you again greeting. It just continued to get better from there. Our butlers, Dwayne & Wilson were nothing short of spectacular in taking care of anything and everything we needed. The property is immaculate and included activities are endless. Every year there are new surprises with updated restaurants and accommodations. The entire staff is there to help you; from regularly taking drink orders on the beach to simply saying hi as they pass you on a walkway. Our room (#851) was a Beachfront One Bedroom Butler Villa Suite - category 1B. It's a nice sized , well appointed accommodation whose best feature was the two separate and distinct rooms. They are separated by double doors and the outer area is a spacious living room with a sofa, cocktail table, upholstered chair, desk & chair, and a huge wet bar, fully stocked. The bedroom is a nice size with a 4 poster, king-sized bed. The only downside to this room is the rather small bathroom. It does have a whirlpool tub/shower but, is definitely not large enough for two people to use at the same time. All of the staff are wonderful but several, in addition the ones I've already identified, deserve special praise. Our housekeeper (forgive me-I can't remember her name, began with a "V") was so sweet, polite and helpful. No request was too much for her to handle for her. Carla, was simply wonderful in helping us to decide on an accommodation and working out dates for our next stay. And finally, Robert, in Butch's Steakhouse was outstanding in service, attitude and thoughtfulness! Sandals Montego Bay continues to be a respite from the real world; truly a little bit of paradise! We've been coming to this resort for many years now and will continur Read less
