Been to Jamaica about 5 times. The first 3 , we stayed at another chain resort in Negril. Last year we did a split stay with 4 nights at Sandals South Coast then 4 nights at Sandals Negril. This year we did another split stay. 4 nights at Sandals Negril then 4 nights at Sandals Montego Bay. The 4 nights here was March 10th -14th. Got out of Jamaica just in time to arrive back home before the virus really hit. Luckily we had a direct flight back to Detroit. So we left the other Sandals on the 10th and had to be out of the room by 11:00. At 11:30 a van-shuttle picked us up and took us to Montego Bay. Got wisked away to the Club Lounge and check in went smooth as it could. The room luckily was ready. We booked a Beach Walkout in the Paradise building. Great location. The was new and modern and very clean. The fridge was stocked so we grabbed a beer and went exploring. Discovered both pools,and hot tubs, found a little secret hot tub behind the Paradise building.Did a search to see where all the restaurants were. Make sure to get dinner reservations because they fill up fast. Ended up getting early seating but wanted later, so kept checking back to see if something else was available. Finally did get later seating. The food here we discovered was very good. Everymeal was fabulous. I asked for the signature drink at dinner every night. Since we had a walkout room, it was easy to get to the beach in the morning to save 2 beach chairs. Like every other resort, the game is highly played here. Mostly stayed at the beach and a couple times in the afternoon went for a dip in the pool. The only time we left the resort is to go over to Royal Caribbean to check that out. There is a shuttle schedule. Very short ride over. When we got there , got in line for the shuttle boat-big yellow dragon-and went over to the private island. Got 2 beach chairs there and got a drink at the bar over there. This is where the Overwater Bungalows are. Stayed for about 2 hours then headed back to Montego Bay. That resort was a little too compact and has the original decor. But still glad to check it out. We knew going into this resort that it is next to the runaway at the airport. But everyone was right, they reallywas not a bother. So wouldnt let that be a deal breaker. The day we got there, it was really windy and the water was on the rougher side and dug up alot of black from the ocean floor. Was hoping it wasnt always like that. The next day, the water was calm and clean. There is alot of weddings that take place here. My husband did use the spa for a deep tissue massage. We did not utilize the gym. We are up very early and go to bed on the earlier side , so didnt see alot of the night entertainment. When it was time to leave the resort, we had a private driver with a BMW take us to the airport. Been trying to visit alot of Sandals over the years. So far, Saint Lucia Grand, Grenada, Antigua, South Coast, Negril, and now we add on Montego Bay. Read less

My wife and I chose the Montego Bay Sandals resort as our honeymoon destination. If we had the option of doing it all over again, we'd do the same! The resort was absolutely incredible. We booked a room with a swim up pool and a butler. This enhanced our experience at the resort. The resort was very friendly and clean with tons of restaurants and amenities. In actuality, there is no need to even leave the resort. However, excursions and local country explorations are endeavors that my wife and I enjoy. (The cab fare is a bit much. However, this is independent of Sandal resorts.) Sandals resorts are highly recommended! The staff was very friendly and the food and beaches were awesome. We left yearning for more and wanting to go back. Read less

I come not to praise Sandals Montego Bay, but to give our reasons why we shall not return to a Sandal’s property ever again. How about we start with the lies.

I come not to praise Sandals Montego Bay, but to give our reasons why we shall not return to a Sandal’s property ever again. How about we start with the lies. They cancelled the catamaran cruise we paid $250 after making us and 40 others wait in the hot sun for one and a half hours when the whole time, they knew the propeller was not going to allow them to leave port. They claimed they refunded the credit card the day we checked out, but 14 days later there still is NO REFUND. Let me let you in on a secret – Island Routes – the “company” that runs everything related to tours is the son of the owner’s business. They are out to get you to use them for everything. Pretty good racket. The previous year when we visited Royal Caribbean, they pushed a 7-night-butler-room for the incredibly low price of 7 GRAND! We grabbed it but what we bought wasn’t as described. They lied about being able to get take-out from every restaurant. Not true. That being said, Cassandra was awesome (she was our butler for 4 days) and Mychal was great (2 days). Rooms – nice Airplane Noise – Loud, obnoxious and believe me, you’ll notice it. Beds – comfortable Pools – way too small. Looked at Couples in Negril for next year and THAT’S A POOL! Housekeeping – always came late in the day – one day there was NO SERVICE. WTF???? Food – They advertise 5-star gourmet – it’s not – you get more gourmet at an average US gourmet restaurant on bad night. Butches Steakhouse was the best there BUT we had to fight to get in and at that, ONLY one night. In no way was it anywhere as good as a good American steakhouse. Let alone a gourmet spot. Our fillets were the ends – not prime cut. The Italian food from Cucina Romana in the room was tasty. Breakfast in the Italian restaurant was our favorite. Nothing else stood out. My wife got food poisoning from the seafood restaurant. Drink – Makers Mark was the top shelf. Didn’t know that butlers will get you Heineken until I was three days in. Buyer Beware – the hard sell and pressure here is irritating and frankly, uncalled for. Sandals is up for sale – so they got to cut corners or add revenue. Every menu you open they try to sell you bottles of wine despite wine being included. Read less
