My wife and I had an incredible time at Sandals South Coast! We got married in August of 2020 and due to COVID, we were unable to do this trip until now! We had a fantastic time because of the views, food and hospitality shown. There are many individual employees that need recognition, more than we can remember. But some specific ones are Travis at the front desk (who helped us when our outgoing flight was delayed) Shavia and Jeronimo (entertainment) who were so kind and welcoming and who we got to share a lot of time with. Antonio at the Jerk Shack made our lunch that day unforgettable with his smile and hospitality. Melisa was our cabana concierge for the day that we spent in a cabana and she treated us like her own! She deserves the world. Keemo made us feel welcome in the lobby during our checkout. Eric, the manager at Eleanors, showed servant leadership as he rolled up his sleeves to help serve the night we dined there. He made us feel right at home. Adam in entertainment never failed to make me laugh. Our trip would have been lesser without our new friend in entertainment, Romaine. He was so quick to chat with us. He sat down and hung out with us often and made us feel like family from the start. We loved sharing our story with him and hearing his. He deserves at least 5 nights at Montego Bay or a raise!

We just returned from our 6 night vacation at this resort. This was our second time visiting this particular Sandals. They've made lots of changes and renovations since our last visit. The best part of this resort is the entertainment team! The playmakers were all fabulous! Adam, the entertainment supervisor was excellent! He was very attentive and engaged with guests. Kevin was our favorite karaoke DJ! He made the nights in the martini bar well worth it. We also enjoyed Markeeta, Miles, Romain and Kemo! Kemo was an excellent dancer and Markeeta's voice is phenomenal. If you're planning to attend this resort any time soon, make sure you take advantage of the fitness classes that are offered!! I know people don't always like to exercise while on vacation, but Rajay was an excellent fitness professional. He took us on a great power walk. He was demanding and encouraging! Definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Mostly all of the food was good. I love that they take dietary restrictions very seriously and offer many options. We had a few issues with our in-room cleaning service, but a simple request on the loop took care of those issues. The general manager of the resort approached us personally to make sure our issue was resolved! That speaks volumes about the dedication and service commitment that sandals exhibits. We thoroughly enjoyed our rebooking experience with Russell. If you go to the loyalty desk, make sure you see Russell! Again, phenomenal service and attention to our needs. He remembered us throughout the rest of our stay and made a point to speak every time we saw him! Last but not least, I want to mention Travis from the front desk. We chatted during our checkout about how people don't normally compliment the front desk clerks. So, I want to give Travis a shout out! He was great! Read less

Spent 7 nights in South Coast. Just great. Staff, accommodations, food, scuba, etc. This was to be our first "post-Covid" trip, which unfortunately wasn't the case as the virus was still in full force in Jamaica. But Sandals did a great job, and took all necessary precautions. One of the nicest of all Sandals. Tips: Play tennis or pickle ball in the early morning to avoid the heat. But bring your own tennis rackets as what they have available are in very bad shape. Go for a walk along the long deserted beach past the overwater bungalos - deserted and beautiful with pelicans everywhere. Take along a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses. Read less

We arrived May 14 and leave Saturday, tomorrow. A few ppl stood out to us and made our stay extraordinary. Malik at Schooners was a blast and made us very comfortable. His energy and personally were great. He picked great food and wine options for us, a party of 6. Vaneesha at Giuseppe's for luch was great. She actually helped us plan the rest of our day. She was very friendly and made sure we had a good time at lunch. Angelika we our server one afternoon at the Dutch pool. We hung out with our friends in their swim up pool that day. She hustled and got us drinks and socialized for a while, always coming back to check on us. She had great energy as well. Unfortunately I can't get the same praises for the spa but I will not Stars of my review. Our 90-minute massages were only 70 minutes long... I paid nearly $500 for 80% of the time I reserved for my wife and I. Massage was average at best and employing massage therapist in my own line of work I was very disappointed. Read less

We spent 4 days at the Bungalow /Honeymoon suite (6008) it was the best 4 days we have ever experienced, Kim (butler) made our vacation extremely special, she was caring and loving, Makare (butler) was great with preparing special events !!! thanks to them, they make our stay so so special. The big set backs: you promote "The most stunning white sand beach and brilliant turquoise sea !!! The pictures you show are probably 15 years old... its not fair for some travelers that want to live beaches only ..this is the one !!! False your sand is beige and you don't have a beach anymore, the ocean is slowly tacking over, this is a big disappointment !!! false advertise !!! If you enjoy pools, you have the perfect ones, but the beach... very disappointing The last 2 days transferred Italian section Junior suite ocean walkout ! nice !! I woke up at 545 ...reserve 2 chairs, not a single one was available. The ones on my wright side reserved for Butler only !!! Swimming pools have loads of them we wonder why? We needed some US funds (we are Canadian) Your policy : $100.00/US per day only - you charge 10% US, we get in Jamaican currency !!! are u for real !!!! ATM machine would be a great service to your customers, everyone else has this service..., but not at Sandals ... I want to end our review to all the beautiful people we met, the staff , if it wasn't for them you wouldn't be whom you are. Thank you again Brunetta at the Club... the best ! took great care of us, Melishia front desk... Grazie - Venezia - Gresta (sorry ) you healed us from sunburns !!! so many of you did the utmost to make us feel good.. RJ - Stella and all the others - Thank you again Yor great gardeners make your property absolutely " impeccable," hats off to them. Read less
