This resort is fantastic! Beautiful grounds and staff goes above and beyond to make your vacation special. We stayed in the Dutch Village and loved it. Nice and quiet and could see the beach from all rooms. We enjoyed the nice walk to the restaurants and main area each day. They were so accomodating to my gluten allergy. The chef would come talk to me at each dinner and advise what options I could choose. The Cafe had 1 or 2 sweet treats each day which I loved! Even would make a GF crepe for me. The playmakers go out of their way to make things fun and are so friendly. Especially Leon, Owen and the others but I can't remember their names. They are so talented and work really hard each day and night. The ride from the airport is not as bad as everyone is saying, they do drive fast and the roads are curvy but the drivers seem to know the roads. This was our 1st time to Jamaica and this resort but we will definitely return. Thanks! Read less

The property itself was outstanding!!! The service and food was 5 star, Sushi on the Sand especially. Some of the service, especially at Jasmines was VERY slow, and the way it was handled was unprofessional. The service in the evenings at Schooners was exceptional, the front of the house was well organized and service was top notch. The playmakers make the resort!!! I appreciated that they were not at all pushy but went out of their way to welcome you. The rooms very clean, but it no way what I was shown online...never had any towel displays like people show. The property was immaculate and most of the service was beyond wonderful. My only complaints would be the noisy carts in the hallway..I felt at times the while the room it was noisy. People not adhering to the smoking policy, people smoked all over, it was rude. The most annoying thing and something I wanted to complain about was the Spa Employees. They asked my husband and I at least 3 times a day if we were headed to the spa. The Spa employees were by the pool, by the ocean, by the rooms...you could not escape them and quite frankly after they were so annoying I did not want service from them at all. It seemed as though they were desperate for people to come into the spa. Other than that it was a perfect trip and I really loved South Coast. Read less

This was our second trip to Sandals Southcoast. We loved it! Last time we stayed in the Italian Village Club level but decided stay in the French Village. ROOM: 2nd Floor; small balcony; view did overlook the water but was a little blocked by the trees; room is outdated but I know they are working on renovating. We don't spend much time in the room so it was no big deal. It was very clean and housekeeping was wonderful! FOOD: We ate at our every restaurant except Sushi. Depending on the time of day, service can be VERY slow. We knew that ahead of time so it didn't bother us. BAYSIDE has a nice buffet breakfast and lunch buffet specials/themes. We did go to Bayside for dinner and it was just ok--I had pork and my husband had roast beef and both were very dry. ELEANORS: this was our favorite place for breakfast and for dinner it was very good, too. NEPTUNES: great bar and food is pretty good--steaks are huge! SCHOONERS: this was our favorite place for lunch and dinner. We first met our waitress LENESSA here at lunch one day. She is such an amazing young woman and hard worker; we had fun laughing with her and getting to know her during our stay; she was also at ELEANORS for breakfast service and she would decorate our table each morning and even a fare well breakfast. LATTITUDES; awesome bar and NESHEAN & JOSH definitely know how to entertain everyone while making & serving drinks! GLENDON at the French Pool bar was friendly and always ready to make us a drink! He would even remember what we were drinking! PLAYMAKERS: This team is absolutely amazing! GLENROY & SHAKIRA did a balloon pop contest at the French pool and it was hilarious! GLENROY was also helpful & kind and he is amazing at the LeCaberet!! OWEN-we loved his blue glasses and peacock sounds and he is such a hilarious guy! Always making us laugh! Sweet guy & great entertainer! LEON-loved playing volleyball with him; he took extra time to show those how to play or hold their hands correctly so they wouldn't get hurt; he made everyone feel included which is awesome! GLENROY & LEON helped us with our bags when we left and gave us big hugs! DAVON was very kind, we chatted with him & got to know a little about him and his goals; he helped me with our tye die shirts, too! Great guy and amazing entertainer as well! CHEVON--king of the Peacocks is what people were calling him..haha! Always smiling and having fun with guests! And SUPER SHELLY-amazing voice..wow! Had fun playing volleyball with her and getting to know her, too! I could go on and on about the whole team of Playmakers! They make you want to return! MAIN LOBBY: Everyone was always smiling and ready to help. JANICE was very helpful when we needed to get cash; she was very busy but still took the time to help! Thank you! Thank you to all the lifeguards, landscapers and maintenance team, too! You all are amazing and such hard workers! We've already rebooked for next year! Read less
