Clients come to us knowing that they want a Sandals Resort in Jamaica. They've seen the ads. They have friends and family that have been and they've been looking forward to a Sandals Resort honeymoon for a long time. You would think their research is done, right? ...not so fast, my friend... You still have 7 options!
Sandals Resorts started in Jamaica and the company has 7 resorts in 4 different areas of Jamaica. They also have 2 sister Beaches Resorts. The two Beaches resorts are not couples only all inclusives, so they don't have quite the unique romantic and stress-free vibe that you'll find at all the Sandals. They are terrific Caribbean wedding resorts. We often arrange all inclusive weddings for the whole family at Beaches, then the bride and groom spend the rest of the honeymoon at a Sandals in Jamaica or we fly them to another island sometimes. Your options are limitless.
OK, back to which resort is best? We take pride in matching the correct couple to the correct Sandals Resort. Are you looking for intimate luxury? If so, the best Sandals Resort in Jamaica for you is Sandals Royal Plantation. This 74 suite resort has the best food and the best service hands down.
Are you looking for affordable? The smaller Sandals Carlyle Inn is always the least expensive alternative. This small 52 room Sandals Resort is located in Montego Bay and is the only Sandals Resort that is actually across the street from the beach. Most Carlyle honeymoon couples spend their beach time at Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Royal Caribbean.
Are you looking for the best beach? All 7 have nice beaches, but the best are the 2 mile stretch of beach at Sandals Whitehouse and the famous 7 mile beach at Sandals Negril. You can't go wrong with these 2. Both are a beach lover's dream. Which is best for you? Sandals Whitehouse is more remote and takes longer to get to from the airport. The resort sits inside a 500 acre nature preserve and the resort doesn't really have anything around. You have a few tour options, but most people choose this resort to get away from it all. Sandals Negril is just a long walk down the beach to all sorts of bars like Margaritaville and is not quite as remote. Sandals Negril also has some incredible suites like the swim up suites and the millionaire suites with private pools.
Are you an explorer? Do you plan to bike , hike, climb waterfalls, swim with dolphins, ride horses, bobsled, golf, play tennis, bum on the beach and more? If so, we recommend Sandals Grande Riviera in Ocho Rios for you if you want to see all Jamaica has to offer. Ocho Rios is where you'll find the biggest variety of tours and excursions. This resort is large with over 500 rooms, 15 restaurants and 10 bars. Because this Sandals is so convenient for excursions and offers so much variety, Sandals Grande Riviera is our most popular all inclusive honeymoon resort in Jamaica.
Are you looking for the best room or suite that you find? Sandals Negril has millionaire suites. Sandals Grand Riviera and Sandals Negril have suites with private pools. Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Negril have some fabulous swim up suites.
Are you golfers? You definitely want to choose Sandals Grande Riviera or Sandals Royal Plantation, which are both close to the Sandals Golf and Country Club. Transfers and green fees are included. The transfer is only 15 to 20 minutes.
Do you love nightlife? Sandals Montego Bay is close to the hip strip in Montego Bay. This resort is also the first Sandals Resort of them all. This resort is more active and lively that all the rest, so you can party all day and all night. You would think this would make this resort the youngest crowd of all, but NOT. Since the resort has been around 30 years, the resort is always full of repeats. Some of the clients are young and all are young at heart!
Would you like access to a private island? Sandals Royal Caribbean is the only resort to have it's own private island. This resort will also soon have the first over the water suites in the Caribbean. We cannot wait!
