What a wonderful week in Montego Bay to get married, honeymoon and celebrate my 49th birthday! The wedding team were fantastic; we had a worry-free event. They even ordered a day of sunshine for our ceremony by the beach. There were a variety of food venues and they were all delicious. I specially loved the pastry cafe. I didn't get to dive this time, but loved the fact that scuba diving/snorkeling and other water sports were included with our stay. Every single staff were friendly and professional. Thank you!

Just returned home from our anniversary trip and it was fabulous! This is our 3rd Sandals trip and our 1st in Jamaica and we are so glad we went! First off our room was wonderful, we were in 118 which is OSS in the Almond building. Rooms are beautiful, updated, and quiet which we liked. The swim up pool was warm regardless of day/night/sun/rain and we spent a lot of time enjoying it! And the view...ridiculous! The resort itself is stunning with a beautiful long stretch of beach and warm blue ocean. One of our favourite places to relax was the Latitudes Bar in a hammock over the water, day and night, so serene and pretty. Now the food...THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS! Every single meal we ate was so yummy, our favourites being Oleander, Stewfish (with the best server Oshin, she’s amazing), Soy and of course Jerk Shack. Every single thing we ate we enjoyed, from the ocean view breakfasts at Cucina or Bayside, to listening to the waves while dining at Tokyo Jo’s. The food was all fabulous and I will especially miss those Jamaican patties! Activities wise we were happy to get a couple tanks of diving in as well as some snorkelling. Captain Mikey and his crew and all the water sports employees were lovely and welcoming and helpful. We had a great time hanging out with all of them and they made our days on the water super fun. We also enjoyed our couples massage at the spa where Jody-Ann and Karen took really good care of us. Wonderful to have that relaxing feel-good experience the day before we left, thanks ladies! Now last but not least, to the two guys who made our trip so special and spectacular...OUR BUTLERS ORIAN AND RUSHANE. They were absolutely fantastic!!! They totally took care of us, anticipating our needs and being so unbelievably lovely. Just the best experience. Thank you Rushane and Orian you two are really the best! We can’t wait for our next trip, once again Sandals really delivered :) Tip: don’t sleep on the silent disco...it was SO MUCH FUN! Read less

After 3 tries we finally made it to Sandals Montego Bay, and it was worth the wait. At first the resort seemed small, not spread out like other Sandal resorts. But that turned out to be a good thing. All the restaurants were great, went back to Butch's a second time because we liked it so much. We felt completely comfortable everywhere we went. ALL the employees wore masks at all times, they were constantly cleaning and sanitizing surfaces, bars, tables, rest rooms. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, whoever wrote the reviews about them being rude , I don't know where they stayed. We had Butler Service and Dekesha was absolutely the best. She had a great laugh and was a terrific sport when we teased her. Our other butler, Asha, not so much. We hardly saw her, she checked us in and brought lunch one day, Not really the same. Also, we had dinner on the beach and our server, Sasha was terrific. I would recommend Sandals Montego Bay to anyone looking for a vacation destination. Read less

Visited Sandals Montego Bay in early November 2020. Usual Sandals very high standard. Spotlessly clean, with good food at the specialist restaurants. Service went between excellent to rather appethtic from some of the reception / restaurant staff. There are free cabanas by the pool, but some guests were ĺaying their towels on them at midnight for the next day! Our flight home was cancelled, so we had to leave 3 days early. Sandals say they will credit these days to our next Sandals holiday. From the 7 days we were there, we had 2 days of sunshine, with the rest being wet but hot. Read less
