Grounds are beautiful but I want to say we had the best butler service ever. Orian and Rushane did everything for us and it was the best service. We have had Orian before and the same wonderful service. Please let him know how great him and Rushane were!!

We did a couples trip and it was awesome. From the time we arrived until we departed it was everything we could ask for. The staff was very friendly and definitely took care of us. Our concierge's Sarah was the best, absolutely amazing! She made sure we had our dinner set up for each night, took care of any excursions we wanted to do and for my birthday she had balloons at my cabana by the pool and an awesome fruit plate for after breakfast. We stayed in the Beachfront Grande Luxe with Balcony Tranquility Soaking Tub - GBT, the views from our room was amazing every morning. The mini fridge was always restocked and the room was cleaned daily. It was the perfect room. The main bar bartenders were the best. Thank you to KK (Kayon) she worked the pool & main bar during the day! Thank you to the night bartenders, Nick (Nicholas), Stephen, Milton I eat a plant based diet and this resort had lots of options for me to choose from. I was pleasantly surprised with the selection. The only thing that we thought was a little weird was the "Silent Party". We are just finding out that this is the new rave. Maybe I'm a little old now..lol but I love to be able to dance and talk with my friends. It was not a bad thing just different but definitely not up my alley but not everything is for everyone. We had such an amazing time that we already booked our next vacation to Sandals! Thank you to the entire staff that took such good care of us. We can't wait to return. Read less

First we must offer our condolences to the whole Sandals family on the loss of a wonderful leader Butch. Sandals Montego Bay is home away from home. The staff the food the resort are all 1st class. The planes don't bother us one bit we find them to be interesting, the way everyone waves goodbye. Our favorite place is the Dive Boat. The dive masters are excellent especially Durban Stewart aka Stewy and Donovan Graybaka Big D. We have made numerous relationships with some staff and it's very hard to leave each year. We will have to start visiting twice a year. Thanks for keeping the place special Carl. One Love John & Lisa Read less

We had another amazing stay at Sandals Montego Bay. The room was terrific and the staff went above and beyond as usual. The over the water bar was our favorite hang out and Butch's steakhouse was our favorite restaurant. There is plenty of beach space and the pools and swim up bars are great!

Honestly, all I remember is that we needed this vacation. After 8 months of strict quarantine, we were willing to get our tests, put on our masks and take a chance for a bit of normalcy. We were so happy we did. This was our second visit to Sandals Montego Bay and we enjoyed it just as much. The first two nights were spent in Club level suite. It was a beautiful room with a great beachfront view. Our final four nights were spent in the M1 Butler suite, our favorite room, in building 15. We absolutely love the location of this building. Because we started with a club level suite, we checked into the Concierge lounge. It was nice but I will say that Shackeen was not very helpful. It's the first time I have experienced a less than helpful attitude from anyone at a Sandals resort. I rented a cabana one day while the hubby went to play golf at Rose Hill. It was nice to have my private space and the cabana service was good too. I would like to see more menu options for lunch. Cory was my cabana butler and he did a great job making sure I had what I needed, including my request for 2 bottles of champagne and pineapple/guava juice in the cooler. We did not eat dinner at Tokyo Jo's or Cricketeers. Last visit we skipped the Italian restaurant but went this time, and we are so glad we did. Everything was delicious. Our first night we ate at Oleanaar and it was not nearly as impressive as our first visit. We enjoyed Butch's for my birthday dinner and splurged for a bottle of wine off the manager's list. It was $60 for a bottle that costs me $20 at home but it was a bottle that I definitely enjoyed. Taija was our server and she was phenomenal. Our expectations were high after meeting Robert in 2019, and Taija was a very close second with her personality, service and engagement. Another favorite for us was Vanessa at Mariners. Our favorite bartender for the week was Damien at Latitudes Bar. Every day, he would see us at the beach and yell (in a fun and welcoming way) for us to come join him. He made me a watermelon drink with fresh water that was so yummy, and when I mentioned it later he made sure to get the ingredients to make it again the next day. We had some great conversations with him too and hope to see him advance at Sandals. We had a scents of love couples massage as usual. They were rubber gloves as part of the enhanced safety protocols but we couldn't tell the difference. I don't remember the names of our therapists and I wish I did because both did an amazing job. It rained almost every single day that were were there. I think the sun actually came out the day after we left...and still we had an amazing vacation. We went to the beach every single day even as the liquid sunshine came down light and heavy. We were so fortunate to once again have Dalton as our butler. He worked some long shifts as his partner was out awaiting the imminent birth of his first child. He took care of everything from the surprise bath and champagne when we returned from our massage, to timing the arrival of 8 pizzas just as my husband and friends returned from a second day of golf, to surprising us with a plate of Jamaican patties while we lounged in the secret hot tub. Dalton took care of everything that was on our preference list, and his memory from our last visit helped him to come up with some other creative ways of surprising us. It was our honor to be one of his guests. Safety - Sandals really does a great job with the safety protocols. Most activities were held in the open air lounge, and we could choose to be close or as far as we were comfortable. Every surface was continuously being cleaned, and all staff wore masks at all times. Housekeeping staff are the unsung heroes at Sandals as they take care of so much behind the scenes. Without their work, we wouldn't have an abundance of clean restrooms, clean lounge areas, and of course the amazing guest rooms. We booked another trip to Sandals Ochi while still on resort, and will be heading there in March 2021. Read less
