We stayed in the OTW Bungalows Feb 13-20, 2021. The resort is amazing. It was really quiet in the evenings when you walk away from the main pool area. Latitudes was a great place for our last stop of the evening while headed back to our place. We loved all the food and it seems as though the portions are starting to get bigger. (The chili dog at Schooners is AMAZING!) The Martini bar was our go to and the drinks were soooo good! A little about the staff: Andre was a Private Transfer driver. He has great energy and a great personality! He told us about the things we were seeing as we drove. We requested that he be our driver on the way back to the airport. He also put in a request to stop and take us to his favorite Jerk place! We are hoping that when we come back next year he is able to drive us to Negril! While on property we met some great employees! Ishmael is a great bartender. He is funny and is a great pourer! Some of the other great bartenders are Peter and Hensley. My husband and I discussed how at most hotels/resorts you can clearly tell who has been trained to face the guests. EVERY single person we walked by greeted us in some way. When you are at some other hotels/resorts you will always pass a maid or a cleaning /maintenance person and they will say hi or good morning but they do not seem as though they feel like they can be personable with the guests. Evernie has a great personality and even made sure to wish me a happy birthday (a day before, because she was off on my birthday). Radcliffe was the person who turned down our room and was great. Usually we did not see him, but we happened to have dinner in the room and were in there later than we usually were. He asked us if we needed anything and was able to replace the robe that somehow got swept up in the dirty towels. We never got to meet our daily maids, but our room was always done well. Make sure to visitTracie at the Spa. She explained concerns she had about doing a second scrub after having one just days before and helped me find a massage. I visited Tracie 3 times in my week long stay. Our Butlers- I cannot say enough about them! Jermaine and Leon are a great team! From the time we stepped foot onto the property until the time we left they were there! Not once did we have a problem getting in touch with them. They would call us everyday when they hadn’t heard from us just to make sure we didn’t need anything. When we did need something they were enthusiastic and prompt! They would apologize for things out of their control, like how long it took to order food from a restaurant. Jermaine/Leon set up a special lunch for my birthday, but by the time I made it down there the weather had turned bad. I am so thankful and appreciative for the gesture and forever will be. Venice was our butler the year before in Ochi. I was so excited to see her and am so glad that she is still working. I applaud the Sandals Corporation for this. I need to give her a shout out because she talked to Jermaine to make sure he knew about my birthday. Finally, I want to give Adrian a quick shoutout! He came to my room personally to hear about my special requests that I wanted. Read less

This was our 4th trip to the property and this time we brought our daughters and their fiancés. It was a very special trip, we really bonded as a family. They had so much fun that 1 couple is going back to South Coast in June of ’21 and ’22! The other couple in June of ’22. The people are what really make this resort special and my kids really bonded with all the playmakers. Especially Leon and Fabian. My kids did EVERYTHING. Poolside trivia, they were in. Pool volleyball, they were in. Learn how to dance, they were in. They even tried to learn Fatwa (sorry if not spelled correctly!) I’ve never seen my kids have so much fun. I know we’ll all be back as a group in the future. I think it is important to mention my in laws who started all of this in 2017. They brought our family to South Coast to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, a group of 8. They had so much fun they rebooked the following year, 2018, for all of us. Then in 2019 they went alone, missed us so brought us all back in 2020. My husband and I then booked our group of 6 for 2021. My in-laws will be back to South Coast later this year, in the Rondavals. My brother-in-law took their kids to Beaches Negril last year and are going back this summer. My other brother-in-law is taking their kids to Beaches Negril next year. We calculated that the trip in 2017 has generated over 20 other bookings. I don’t think there is any other proof than this that Sandals, but more specifically South Coast, knows what they’re doing and is doing it very very well. We are by no means wealthy people, but we budget and make it work because it is worth every….single….penny. Read less

Sandals truly made everything easy by taking care of the COVID testing for return and included travel insurance. Read less
