Took Mother, Adult Daughter, and Wife for postponed vacation. Easy arrival from airport. Excited for return to a Sandals, even if it wasn’t the one we had planned originally. SMB is a nice resort. With lots of activities. The staff is doing a wonderful job keeping everything sanitized and clean. Restaurants were amongst the best of any Sandals we have been to. Butler service was less than expected. A pull aside conversation with the butlers provided an improvement, but was still short of our expectations. The Entertainment Staff was top notch. Some of the individuals I would like to recognize: Wait staff - Raniel, Gerdeen, Cordelia; Entertainment - Melisia, Sapphire, Lisa, Alisha, Ramone, Adam, Kimberly; Water sports - Oriel, Carlos, Macca; Bar staff - Terry Ann, Shanique, Vince, Mark, Dwayne, Ceressa, Steffon Read less

Originally scheduled for Royal Barbados, we moved to Montego Bay due to Jamaica providing a firm opening date. We were not disappointed. The resort is literally next door to the airport and the private BMW transfer takes mere minutes. The Club level check in went smoothly and the staff all wear masks but guests are not required to wear masks. Hand sanitizer is everywhere and you are expected to use prior to entering rooms. The beach has nice sand and the waters are clear. Best of all there are no vendors or any non-resort people on the beach because there is no public access to the beach. That makes beach time peaceful. Some resort highlights are Latitudes over the water bar with the A-team of Rajiv and Sashana. They mix drinks right the first time every time. We got sloppy drinks elsewhere...either mixed poorly or not what we ordered. Soy is excellent. The manager Roberto is welcoming and Danika was so happy to see us. She made us feel so welcome. Asheka is also a great server. We went 3 times to Soy. Lunch as Bayside is also quite good. It is buffet style but they serve you. The shrimp alfredo that they made is superior to the lasagna at Cucina in my opinion.Do not order the scallops at Butches; they are like rubber. Do order the prime rib and we heard the lamb is good. If you get a massage, then I would recommend either Verona or Odane. Verona knows how to work a guy over. The loyalty guest dinner was by far the best dinner of the week with beef tenderloin and lobster tail. In the morning you can see lion fish around the rocks at Latitude. Yes, jets do fly over the resort but it isn't bad at all. It is actually cool to see. Overall it was a great vacation and we would go back to this property and the smiling staff even though you couldn't see their smiles behind the masks. Read less

We had an amazing experience! The staff is SO respectful and concerned with our well-being, and even with the COVID-19 outbreak I still feel very comfortable and relaxed. I am pleased with how often hands are sanitized (upon entry or use of any facility), the food is delicious and well-prepared, I love our room and it is cleaned frequently, and the small wildlife is beautiful and fun to watch/appreciate. We did have a poor experience with the water-sports staff however; my wife fell of her paddle boat and took it to shore to flip it back over and come back out to meet me, but they denied her use after that, saying it was “too dangerous,” and “something could happen to her if she fell off again.” Mind you, she fell of a paddle board once, and was then denied use of the facilities afterward. Naturally, that made me a bit upset, as the logic behind that is absolutely ridiculous (the whole point of a paddle board is to have fun in the water, fall off, jump in, learn to play new water sports), but there was little I could do. Hopefully that was an isolated event and the employee was just having a bad day and decided to take it out on us, because I would hate for something like this to discourage other people from the beach like it did my wife: he actually mocked her for falling, saying she couldn’t even stand up on the board so why would she try again? Then he stated the phrases I posted above. Anyways, everything was lovely and beautiful except that one thing! For the price we paid, I expect just as much: a perfectly peaceful vacation where I can gain more weight (that I can worry about losing later) in peace :) Read less

My husband and I felt like we were in paradise here! We did not have one bad encounter with a staff member on property. Special shoutout to the entertainment team, who made an extra effort to keep a smile on our face. We will forever remember Javada, Kimberly, Mellysa, Sapphire, Ramone, Adam, and DJ Muff. They were all so outgoing and fun! I liked how they would remind us/promote the events to take place! Our butlers, Rajiv and Oshane were constantly checking up on us and reserved great spots on the beach each morning. They knew what we liked and kept a great schedule of food coming to us and surprises every day when we came back to our room. They were very genuine guys who are great at their job. If I could honestly change one thing it would be for the room cleaners to come at a consistent time every day. We appreciate the resort's well maintenance and awareness of COVID-19, we never once seen a staff member without thier mask. Read less
