Have just returned from our first trip to a Sandals resort. Had a great trip and would definitely return again. All the staff are fantastic! Bar staff were great, special mentions for Tyrone, Tajay and Horraine always making lovely drinks and never letting a glass go empty! Cleon at the jerk shack/Taco van was very friendly and gave great service. The entertainment was by far the best I have experienced at any hotel, Dialdo’s dancing and Francois’ singing were brilliant. The Jamaican show was a highlight. Thanks for a great holiday! Read less

Sandals South Coast really made our wedding the most special day of our lives. With everything going on we thanked all staff we came in contact with but I’m Blanking on some of their names and wish we had made a list . The Butler Elite was really the way to go when staying in the over the water bungalows. They are friendly and just amazing people. Shalamar, our photographer, was nothing short of phenomenal. I hope I see him again someday. Tamika at the main pool bar is amazing, what a beautiful person. Our on site wedding planner made it all happen and I’m forever grateful for her. Read less

The sailing equipment was well worn and in need of repair or replacement. Very noisy the entire time, even on the beach. Heavy equipment being used every day. The food was disappointing. That said, the overall atmosphere is like paradise. The garden tour with Cher I highly recommend!
