Jamaica was everything and more that we had hoped for. Bringing in my husbands 50th Birthday in Jamaica was a big deal for me. From the time we stepped off the plane in Montego Bay, we had to sanitize. Once we walked around the corner before customs, there was someone else waiting to sanitize. Once we got to customs, we sanitized again. Once we got up to the customs counter, we sanitized again. Jamaica really knew how to make us feel safe, and they were on top of keeping everything sanitized during this pandemic. Unbelievable amazing. I loved it. Once we got to our personal transportation car, we had to sanitize before getting into the car. Everyone in Jamaica were so nice and welcoming. What put the icing on the cake for this trip was our Butler PALMER!!! What an extraordinary human being. He made us feel like family. This was our first trip to Jamaica, and it was like he read our minds on what we wanted to do and eat. He took very good care of us. We did not have to do anything, even though we did at times. Palmer pays attention to detail. His customer service and interpersonal skills is top notch. If you travel to Sandals MoBay, I highly recommend you requesting him. Just not the days that we will be there lol. Enjoy, and Jamaica made us feel safer with Covid than the USA. When we retuned back to the USA, I only recall seeing 1 hand sanitizing station. Very sad.

This was the second time my husband and I visited this property. This was our first time with a butler. We weren't sure we wanted a butler, but we loved the extras and our butler team OShane and Rajiv - They were fantastic!!!! It was nice to have someone handle dinner reservations was fantastic. It was great to have our beach chairs with a cooler, again we just enjoyed. They went the extra mile with towel animals and my birthday baths were a nice surprise. The were so very nice and thoughtful, they made having a butler really pleasurable and we will do it again!! Absolutely Recommend this butler team!!! Also, Cassandra was the person our section of the beach for bring drinks! She was amazing at her job and her smile and laughter each day was infectious! When she had her days off no one came and inquired if anyone in our section wanted anything from the bar. The last 3 days we were there. Hope Cassandra is there when you visit - she is wonderful and her kindness and smiles let you know she is there and you are taken care of whole time you are trying to relax on vacation. Between Cassandra and our Butlers - made this our best vacation ever!!! Went to spa and had 2 of the best messages from Trevon - I highly recommend him!!! We did the candlelit dinner on the beach. Our server Ricky did an outstanding job. His service and food were great!! We will do this again - was worth it to us. The rise I was given bloomed all week! The restaurants were good and enjoyed the settings. We did not leave the property as this was our choice. We really want to unwind and relax and we did this on the beach everyday! We enjoyed the down time immensely. The weather was great! We also booked to comeback next year! We spoke with Carla at the loyalty travel office - she was great!!! so we ended up booking for next year and 2024! I hope this assists another traveller. We really like this property. The beach, pools,bars are all really nice. I recommend having a drink at latitudes the over water bar and watch the sunset - it really does not get any better than that. Also, enjoyed sitting by the gas fire pits at Latitudes after dinner. Read less

We started our trip at Sandals Ocho Rios for 3 nights. we then checked into sandals Montego Bay for four nights in a butler suite swim out oceanfront room. The resort is absolutely beautiful. However, I am a travel advisor and therefore travel to multiple destinations. I will tell you I have never had a butler staff as incredible as Katrina and Cassandra. They truly went way above and beyond and have now set the bar extraordinarily high for any Butler in the future. There wasn’t anything we could even ask for because they anticipated our needs and had it for us before we even knew we needed it. For this very reason is why I will continue recommending my clients to your resort. Read less

This trip was rebooked because of covid restrictions..had a very good time. Very clean resort! Transfer from airport to resort took over 45 min because of lack of BMWs and amount of people getting transferred when we landed. Food was OK, typical resort quality.Butches steakhouse was the best. Butlers were good but they had 7 or 8 rooms to take care of at the same time, so the experience was not as good as other sandals we have been too. Check in took way too long waiting for a butler. Our anniversary was never acknowledged even though I listed it as the reason we were going. Overall we had a good time as the weather was perfect! Not sure I would go back to this resort however.
