I booked a last minute vacation to Sandals RC with my mom. I had been to Sandals Grande St. Lucia on my honeymoon, but this was my mom's first time at a Sandals. We chose Sandals RC because it was only a 4 hour flight from Toronto and the resort was only 10 short minutes from the airport. Our room was in the Kensington building, and was slightly outdated but very clean. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. We tried every restaurant except for the pub and the jerk shack, and we both agreed that the Thai place was the best dinner we had, while the pizza place was so delicious we had it 3 times for lunch! The nightly entertainment was really fun to watch, especially the steel drum band and the country singer who had a great voice and sang a ton of oldies. We took a 2 person kayak out for a spin, as well as a stand up paddle board. One night there was a wine tasting where we got to try 6 of the Robert Mondavi Twin Oaks wines. Because it was so hot in Jamaica, we had no intention of drinking red wine, but the Cabernet Sauvignon was so good we ended up drinking it with our pizza lunches! We even cracked open the bottle in our room and had some on our patio. Thanks Krystal for the tasting! One day we rented a cabana on the private island at a cost of $150, which was worth every penny. We had our own cooler, loungers, and a cell phone to call the concierge if we wanted anything else. Thanks to Owen at the bar for the mean mojitos! Other than it being a little rainy, we really enjoyed our short stay at Sandals RC.
"Wedding at SRC"
Let me first start off by saying that Sandals Royal Caribbean is just that Royal Caribbean!!!! Once you step onto the resort they begin to treat you as royalty yet like family! We booked the Royal One bedroom Butler Suite!! I especially loved this room because we were the end room closest to the Kensington private pool. Nice and quiet. Not to mention my husband and I every night and early morning we would check around the piers for the wildlife! Spectacular wildlife ! Our butlers Andre and Dewayne were great!!!! We didn’t utilize them as much as others would have. But they checked in on us, called to see if we needed anything. Not to mention without us asking Dewayne seen us on the beach with our guests and brought us over our cooler of drinks! They coordinated our reservations to the French restaurant! And even our snorkeling! Andre made a beautiful bubble bath for us. We booked our wedding there for 11-11-17. Tannif our wedding coordinator was beyond helpful! From start to finish she thought of things that we didn’t, she made sure we were happy with how everything was turning out ! She also calmed us down!! This was my husbands first time ever traveling, and my first time traveling outside of the U.S. She made the wedding process very easy for us. I’m sure she could tell I was a nervous wreck with how many times I messed up on papers :-) Throughout the wedding day she would come check in on my guests and I as I was getting ready! As the liquid sunshine came down she took charge into keeping everything dry for that quick shower. We got married at the pier closest to the Belmont building and reception on Balmont Beach! The photographer for the wedding was awesome! His name I can not remember ! He recently transferred from Montego Bay to SRC which I was so happy for! His pictures were perfect, he caught perfect shots of my father and I walking down to meet my husband with him smiling. My father doesn’t smile much! He was very understanding when all of our guests wanted to take pictures us and not to mention he was one funny guy that made my nerves settle!! The entertainment at night was nice ! They changed the entertainment each night. We didn’t stay out for much but did get to catch karaoke night, fire breathing dancers, and the hoolahoop dancer. Warren one of the entertainment workers was amazing as well! While we waited for dinner at the Thai restaurant after our wedding he brought us over to the piano bar. Bartenders were great there as well! Warren sang us songs ! Not a bad voice either ! He kept checking on us as well each night after. My father in law loved Warren! Both are just hilarious when together !!! Overall we loved Sandals Royal Caribbean we are planning another vacation already! We can’t decide if we want to try somewhere else (travel the world a little) or go back home to SRC. I say home because they truly do treat you as family!
We were here last week for 8 days. We went with a 5 couples to celebrate our anniversaries. Two of the couples renewed their vows. The food, the atmosphere, the drinks and especially the staff were excellent. Oshine(energy) could brighten up your day with her smile and enthusiasm she gave every day. We will remember that smile. So many great people in jamaica. Tracy-Ann was amazing and full of life. Big bird, orlando, shamar, and Whoop Whoop provided great service and entertainment at the Cricketers. Garfield was wonderful and love his laugh. Chico and Warren did awesome with provided great exciting shows throughout our trip. Can't wait to go back and see all the wonderful people again. Love Sandels and Love Jamaica.
"Wedding anniversary trip"
Came here with my wife for the first time last week. Heard lots of good things about sandals properties so we had to check it out ourselves. Everything we heard was true. We absolutely loved our stay. We got a butler suite room and highly recommend that to anyone staying at sandals. The butler Service is more but worth every penny. They take care of all reservations for you, book all excursions, bring you coolers with drinks and reserve any seat you want on the property. They also check on you throughout the day to make sure you are having fun or you can call them on the cell phone they give you to call them anytime. The entertainment at this resort was top notch. Special thanks to Chico and Warren who kept the party going all day and all night at the pool and during the evening events. It always felt like a party with them around and kept us all in a great mood. Their energy and interaction with all the guest was amazing. Also a special shout out to Kevoun, Rasheed, and Ian at the pool bar. Amazing bar tenders. You name the drink, they can make it and make it fast and with a smile and great attitude. They remember your name and what drinks you like and keep your drink filled without you having to ask for more. The amount of water activities and things you can do for free here is great as well. Take advantage of the activities and sign up in the morning to plan out your whole day. All of the food was great and well portioned. Had amazing experiences with all of the different restaurants. Only the French restaurant for breakfast was a disappointment, as it took way too long for the food and was not up to par to all other restaurants on the property. Also make sure to visit the other Sandals resorts while you are there. Great to see the other beaches, amenities and restaurants that are all included when you stay at any Sandals. Already planned our next trip back out for next year.
"A honeymoon we will never forget!"
We stayed at the Sandals Royal Caribbean for our honeymoon. The resort, the staff, the food, the drinks...everything was excellent. We stayed at one of the beautiful over water villas, which comes with 2 dedicated butlers, and our butler team was nothing short of amazing. Shanetta and Akeem made our stay at Sandals unbelievably enjoyable. They went above and beyond for us with everything. From setting up romantic in-room meals, escorting us to the best spots at the resort, prepping hot bubble baths when we’d return to our room, to decorating and personalizing our villa each day. They would even surprise us with tropical cocktails throughout our stay. I could go on, but the list is endless. Sandals Royal Caribbean is very lucky to have these 2 hardworking, friendly, and very caring employees. I strongly recommend the overwater villas, and if possible, I’d strongly recommend asking for Shanetta and Akeem to be your butlers. For our last night at the resort, we treated ourselves to the Night Blooming Jasmine couples massage followed by a romantic/private candlelight dinner. Our massage therapists, Bernette and Soshana, were amazing! And for our dinner, we had the pleasure of being served by Devroy, who is charming, sharp, and very friendly with an infectious smile. He made our last night at the resort very special. The whole resort is beautiful, our encounters with the entire staff was so pleasant, and our overall experience was so enjoyable. Can’t wait to go back in the near future! Our honeymoon was truly unforgettable thanks to resort and their staff!
