Absolutely love Jamaica I was very sad to see our butler at sandals the first night never come back when he did an amazing job making our room perfect in our food and drinks excellent. Unfortunately we were not told on our first night that he was Covid positive my husband came home with Covid and had problems with fever and the sickness. On our way home we stopped see my parents in North Carolina who are completely healthy and we were not. I love Jamaica but unfortunately this coronavirus made my home family in California sick. So far my When I left on my vacation I was negative .I thought I was completely free of Covid unfortunately the first day were we arrived Chad was sweating and I didn’t think anything of it because it was humid. And now that is our Point of interest of someone who is sick. After two nights in North Carolina we came back to California and discovered that we were sick with Covid my husband actually showed signs and he tested positive so that the rest of our immediate family got tested I was tested and I was asymptomatic my youngest son was tested and he’s asymptomatic and my oldest son is negative.. I just want everybody to know that the only place we were was in Jamaica we purposely bought first class tickets on American Airlines and we have not been in contact with anybody else besides sandals report with Chad and Makiko as our people who are taking care of us at the resort Chad was there the first night Makiko has been there the rest of the night and I absolutely love her but we only saw Chad the first night and never again because he had a child who had issues according to sandals with one report the other report when we asked about him was all over the board all kinds of different issues. Our other Butler at sandals resort was Romaine I knew you were taking a chance and we’re going there to go on vacation because we were both negative and we bought the island resort home they were saying it and we purposely ate there as much as possible except for dinners and I don’t think the dinners got us sick I think it was the first day of being there with her first butler. Thank God nobody is sick to the point we’re gonna die but I have to tell you please do not travel stay home it was up to me I would never have left if I knew I was going to put my 84-year-old mother at risk coming home and staying at her home for two days. Please please never take this on as a part of travel during Covid. I am grateful that I am asymptomatic and so is one of my sons because now we can help people give plasma to help those who are in desperate need of recovery. My husband still has a cough three weeks later after going to Jamaica I don’t recommend it not now if I had to choose again I would’ve thought with my husband whether he liked it or not choosing my family to die or for me to see them live in totally different 80-year-olds should not be in our way of having Covid I would never have gone to Jamaica and then they can’t visit my mother and father knowing that they were exposed to Covid I paid for first class tickets and having a private butler and a private residence over the water to be away from potential Covid victims to have gotten it now after we left with our butler who is most likely her culprit and I hope that he survived and his family has survived God bless him and God bless the rest of the US they have been exposed!

Sandals September 2020         What a truly awesome vacation !!!! During these trying times Let me get one thing out the way, the travel authorization is the most stressful thing I have had to endure in 5 decades of travel. There has to be better way?? Anyhow it came through 24hrs before we travelled.This was incredibly stressful as we didn’t have a Plan B Used club mobay, hard to tell if it helped as the lines where ridiculous long but again no biggie Onto sandals Greeted at club sandals nice drink, bags tagged five minutes later out to a chauffeured 5series BMW Off the short trip to sandals (under 10 mins) greeted at front door welcome towel quick temp check then mask off for 7 days! All staff members at all times had masks We were in CLUB sandals for maybe 10-15mins nice drink then Mykel our butler arrived and we were off Quick tour of the resort answered a few questions chatted about preferences and onto room 614 Bags already there, butler offered to unpack not needed, nice room great view right in front of beach with butches and soy behind We told Mykel the most important thing for us was the beach, he set us up with some chairs but way too noisy, next day Cassie and Mykel had switched our palapa to quiet spot by the big chess board IDYLLIC, each day we had a set up of a bottle of champagne, OJ and beers On this trip my wife and I had decided we were just chillin, walks on the beach spot of lunch laze in the ocean and that’s all we did for seven days The butlers were amazing help with reservations etc and we switched a few times NO PROBLEM My iPhone cable broke and Mykal went into town on his day off got me a new one and delivered to hotel!!!!!!!!! That’s above and beyond  Cassie our other butler was also outstanding and a delight to chat to they both EXCELLED and should be recognized. I have mentioned this before in previous reviews of Sandals. Sandals is a fantastic brand and excellent value phenomenal service and food. You do get what you pay for and certain Room categories offer higher levels of service (kinda like coach and first class) Butler class rooms are treated slightly different Are they worth it??? That 100% depends on the individual. We enjoyed the butlers probably did not use them like most people do but we saw excellent value for them they do an exemplary job. As with other sandals we found the food to be a very high standard, little changes with breakfast buffet but excellent choices We ate a Butches twice, Nicky our waitress and wine slinger  was an absolute treasure my wife wanted to adopt her!!!!! Andre the restaurant manager was a true professional, the standard of food is excellent I enjoy Sandals portion sizes great dishes not too large well balanced One night we went to cucina Italian, the restaurant manager Angelina is a sweet lady chatted to us a couple of times and delroy (potential stand up comic) had the chef “jacopy” from milan, come by the table as I had a specific request. No problem he made me an awesome “off” menus entrée it was superb we had an excellent evening We attended the Sandals loyalty dinner and enjoyed a wonderful meal from a set menu it was excellent beautifully presented   Omar from EPIX took quite possibly one of the best pics my wife and have !!!!!!!!! We met Dalton 2nd employee at sandals 39 years still going strong super nice guy Michelle from loyalty hooked us up with next trip in march 13% off plus some bonus I like the way they do this Kurt the pic guy introduced us to the manager Jermain great guy very professional we bought a few pics as always Went snorkeling one day with Capt. MACCA and his team EXCELLENT Gotta give a big shout to PETA GAY even though we had a butler she came by everyday with mimosa visited with my wife had a little chat She is a true credit to this resort what a delightful young lady. The crew at dinos and mariners for lunch Dadra and Zara EXCELLENT nothing is too much trouble. Gerdeen each morning at breakfast great service Now by far one of my fav bars in the old LATITUDES what a location fantastic Juvell one of the bartenders great character COOL spot Sandals is doing an excellent job during COVID sanitization everywhere The resort felt like it only had 100 guests I don’t know if that’s accurate We loved the resort the staff were excellent the food and service top notch if you read a negative comment just ignore it You cannot please everyone but let me tell you sandals is a sure bet for an excellent vacation Quick foot note I would never have dreamed would be at the bottom of any review!!!! Most of the stores at MBJ departures side were 50% off on tshirts and souveneirs!!!!!! Deal never thought I’d say that about a airport Big thanx to all at sandals mobay Read less

For our Sandals experience, from when we first arrived right up to our departure the staff was amazing. Super accommodating and friendly. The resort was kept immaculately clean.
