For absolute privacy, choose one of the Beachfront Hideaway Butler Villas, set on a quiet stretch, just steps away from the white-sand beach.

We spent 5 days at this incredible resort. From the moment we got picked up at the airport- in a BMW- we felt so taken care of. Everyone was so hospitable, welcoming and kind. The resort was beautiful, all the staff were kind and accommodating. The food and drink were delicious. We really enjoyed how the Playmakers engaged you in activities. We were impressed by the variety of food and happy that there were many Jamaican dishes to try. Latitudes- the over water bar- is so romantic and beautiful. The hobie cats were a blast and kayaking was fun as well. Again- all of the staff are so accommodating and kind. We were sad to leave and cannot wait to return again! Read less

Overall, just a phenomenal vacation experience. This was my first ever Sandals experience and when I think of what the ultimate beach vacation is supposed to entail, this absolutely fulfilled that thought. We stayed 4 days in a butler suite (HBH) and can't say enough good things. From the reception into the Sandals Club at the airport to the BMW transfers and even to checkout, it was all simply wonderful. Our butlers were available for anything/everything we requested, the dining (room service, several restaurants) was fantastic and the bar service was also superlative. The physical property is in tip-top shape and very impressive. I've been told of many recent capital improvements and left very impressed. The beach is as advertised, pure and simple. You must be aware that the airport is quite literally next door. There are about 25 departures a day and you will get to see every one of them if you are outdoors. That said, the planes didn't bother us one bit at all. Very excited to return sometime in the near future. Read less

We had one of the rooms that walked out to the pool...I highly recommend it! But any room would be fine. Once you're on site, you can go to any of the pools. They've done some remodeling and added a few restaurants since our last visit there just a year ago, and it's all wonderful! Every need or desire is anticipated, and there's really nothing… Read more

We invited over 50 guests to attend our SMB wedding and everyone couldn’t stop raving about the quality of service, the beautiful resort and the amazing staff! Our wedding planner Sherika was absolutely amazing to say the least. From start to finish she accommodated all of our requests with delight. Our wedding was everything we hoped for. The staff made the entire experience efffortless. The playmakers hosted a few private events for our guests which were super fun that our guests truly enjoyed them! Every night there was something being hosted on the resort for the guests for entertainment including game nights, talent shows, karaoke and live music. The food is all top notch. Couldn’t pick a favorite spot because they were all really yummy! 11 out of 10. We already booked our anniversary trip for next year. Highly highly recommended. We few tips, men bring long pants as there are two restaurants that require it. Bring bug spray! At night they tend to come out and if ur out be sure to use it. Bites don’t look cute with a swim suit haha. Bring cash. Though it’s an all inclusive, there is a gift shop and it’s required for any excursions. Read less

Our first visit to Jamaica was all that we had dreamed. Sandals Montego Bay resort was pristine, beautiful, and had everything we needed to be comfortable and relaxed during our stay. Our room was centrally located and we took advantage of the amazing tub on the balcony several times. The bars were wonderful and made anything we asked (custom). The restaurants were also fabulous, but we had two favorites - one was Soy (sushi) which was BLOW MY MIND amazing! The sushi was up there as one of the best we have ever had. I cannot tell you how great the sashimi was! But the desserts (cheesecake and amazing fruit bowl) will never be forgotten! The waitress we got at Soy was SHANTINA and I just loved her! She had a great smile and made us feel so welcome. She was WONDERFUL! Butch's Steakhouse also met our expectations and more. The service we received was great even though we forgot to make reservations - Venessa took GREAT care of us! Thank you for everything! Read less
