Why We Like it:
The couples-only Sandals Royal Caribbean, near Montego Bay and just minutes from Sangster International Airport, was the very first overwater bungalow resort in Jamaica and indeed the first in the entire region.
The concept was an immediate success and the Sandals company soon followed it with more bungalows at Sandals South Coast (also in Jamaica) and in their branch in St. Lucia.
Sandals Royal Caribbean though was the groundbreaker, or well…water breaker, in this region and its standards, have been extremely high from the beginning.
It is a high-end luxury, all-inclusive paradise with a private island (where the overwater bungalows are to be found), top-of-the-range facilities, superb food and drink, and consistently excellent service.
It also has a tremendous location: getting to most overwater bungalow resorts usually involves a fairly long journey from the nearest airport but here you are, tantalizingly, just minutes (via the resort’s private shuttle) away.
They have a great range of accommodation to choose from; hotel rooms, suites and over-the-water accommodation offering varying levels of space and luxury to suit most budgets.
Their beautiful overwater bungalows, attached to a gorgeous little private island, have set the standards high from the very beginning.
They have a tangible sense of luxury, are sleek, modern and spacious (just over 1,100 square feet), and come with outdoor terraces, infinity plunge pools, large glass floor panels, romantic spa-style bathrooms with bathtubs, a wealth of modern facilities and 24-hour room service with an exclusive in-room dining menu.
Those with the infinity plunge pools will cost you quite a bit extra but they are also more spacious.
Prices & Availability:
Check out all the details and compare prices at the resort’s own website (Sandals) here, at Expedia.com here and at Booking.com here.
Note: Like most luxury overwater bungalows in the Caribbean the overwater bungalows at Sandals Royal Caribbean are incredibly sought after – you really should reserve your stay as soon as possible. You are allowed free cancellation on most bookings.
Last Minute Deals?
In order to fill gaps in occupancy (if they have any) due to cancellations etc., Sandals sometimes offers discounts on last minute stays, generally offering one free night on stays of 3 or 4 nights if booked up to a few weeks in advance. Check for any last minute deals here.
Resort Facilities & Things to Do:
You have a nice choice of food and drink outlets from casual eateries and lively bars to elegant fine dining restaurants, serving French, Thai, Caribbean seafood, and international cuisine.
If that somehow isn’t enough you can also jump on the free shuttle to Sandal’s two other Montego Bay resorts where even more choice awaits, all of which is included in your all-inclusive package.
There are seven swimming pools at the resort, including two swim-up bars, five jacuzzis, and a small but utterly gorgeous stretch of private beach.
There is live entertainment most evenings at various places around the resort; beach parties, live music shows, and cultural performances.
The all-inclusive package allows you access to a great range of water sports; snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, jet skiing etc. etc., and on dry land, you can play beach volleyball, tennis, billiards, shuffleboard and table tennis.
There is also a fitness center/ gym at the resort and their luxurious, South East Asian-themed Red Lane Spa offers a range of high-quality health and beauty treatments.
The staff at The Royal Caribbean have a relaxed, friendly manner but are efficient and dedicated – their private butlers in particular receive great praise from guests.
Just five miles from Montego Bay and Sangster International Airport (you will be whisked to the resort within minutes by private shuttle), the resort sits by the blissfully calm waters of Mahoe Bay.
There are regular shuttle services to Montego Bay and the shops, bars and restaurants of the main tourist area, the so called Hip Strip.
High-end shopping can also be had at Whitter Village, Montego Bay’s very modern outdoor shopping mall, just ten minute’s walk from the resort.
