Montego Bay, Jamaica

The hotel

A large resort on its own private peninsula with over 1,800 ft of white sand beach, the Sunscape Splash Montego Bay has a fantastic range of activities available for everyone to enjoy on an Unlimited-Fun® getaway. Families will particularly appreciate The Explorer's Club, for kids aged 3-12 years, and the Core Zone Teens Club with pool tables, video games and a host of activities. Both facilities are located in the Pirates’ Paradise Waterpark with two giant slides, Blackbeard’s Lazy River and a Pirates ship! While the kids are enjoying themselves, you can sneak off to the spa for a relaxing treatment. Remember though, you are not just limited to the extensive list of on-site activities, as the Sunscape Montego Bay Jamaica is ideally located within reach of several local points of interest including Dunn's River Falls and five unique golf courses for the golfing enthusiasts amongst you. With six restaurants to choose from you can savour a variety of international cuisine and come dark, venture to one of five bars and kick back in true Jamaican style, while listening to some authentic live music, sipping on a refreshing cocktail — perfect! Whatsmore, Sun Club Guests have access to two additional restaurants and bars, so treat yourself to an upgraded package for exclusive benefits and tuck into breakfast at the Terrace Restaurant or for dinner, feast upon some Italian cuisine at Da Mario.

Going to Jamaica was an experience I will carry with me for the rest of my life. This hotel, the staff, and the other visitors I met will forever be special to me. Nick, Clifton, Andre, Shelly, Alex, Felicia, Tishane, and Stephen and Rickie are just a few of the amazing people on the staff that I met there. I really want to give a shoutout to the entertainment crew, everyone there did a fantastic job of being extremely fun and friendly to be around. I found myself never in my room, always out and about from one activity to another. The food here is good, exactly what you would expect for a buffet, however during lunch there is a place that offers jerk chicken fresh from the grill right in front of you, it is the best chicken I've ever tasted. The staff was very friendly, overall I really enjoyed my time. Thank you to everyone on the staff for your hard work. -Matt Read less

My wife and I had read that there was a nude beach right next to the club that we could walk to. This was no longer the case when we were there in Feb 2020. So we were very disappointed. We researched other nude options, but there were none nearby. Other than that, the club was very nice. The food was great with lots of choice and various restaurants to go to. The service was very good and the people were all very friendly. Everything felt clean and kept up. The room was nice and the entertainment was pretty good. We had a very nice time. I would have given it 5 stars except for a few things. One is that almost half of the lounge chairs were in need of repair, so not comfortable to lay in for more than an hour. The loungers were all taken by around 8 or 8:30, so we had to claim ours early. The other was that even though it was safe to wander around outside of the hotel grounds, there wasn't much to walk to other than a club next door. The entertainment lighting on the stage was always dim for some reason. Read less

I will say the previous reviews were making me nervous. After being there I don't really understand them. Please keep in mind you pay for you get , it is not the Hilton but it was fine. We stayed on the Cove with a room right on the beach. It was great, cleaned daily and fridge was restocked daily. Didn't spend a lot of time in the room during the day. Room service at night was great for my kids. This is a family resort so it is not one I would go to for a night life or party. With kids it was great. Beach is great for the kids. Starfish, crabs etc to see. The kayaking was great and so was the snorkeling. Food was good a little boring after a few days. Drinks were easy to come by. Marlon on the beach was great, he can help you out with what you need. Cruze was slinging the drinks and everyone else was nice and pleasant to deal with. Overall we were happy. kids were 6 and 9 and the trip was about them and they enjoyed it. Adults only this isn't for you. Read less

We enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling, swimming and just floating around. The water park for families is a great addition. The different foods and restaurants were good. We enjoyed stopping in for ice cream and a cup of coffee at the 24 hour cafe. The staff were friendly, helpful, and seemed to enjoy their work. We will definitely return to this resort!! Read less
