Sandals Montego Bay Home of the famous Hip Strip known for it’s dining, shopping and partying.  There are two Sandals in MoBay and staying at one means you get to play at all three.  Sandals Montego Bay offers a private beach with a great party vibe.  Sandals Montego Bay also just added amazing new swimout suites that are directly beach front that are richly appointed.    Sandals Royal Caribbean offers British flair with high tea, an authentic pub and a laid back atmosphere.  Massages on the private island here are a must and for couples wanting the ultimate in Caribbean luxury you can stay in either an overwater bungalow or an ultra luxurious overwater villa.  Each villa has a theme (earth, metal, water, fire, wood) and are so well appointed it may be tempting to never leave the room.

South Coast For those who truly want to get away from it all there is Sandals South Coast, 90 minutes from Montego Bay, on Jamaica’s unspoiled South Coast.  Sandals South Coast is located in a nature preserve and on a spectacular stretch of private beach.  This resort truly is paradise found.  All rooms here are beachfront and now Sandals South Coast has added overwater bungalows to their suite options, dining is amazing, you can even relax on a hammock at an overwater bar.  At Sandals South Coast you also have a ton of excursion options on and off property, but if you are too relaxed to leave the resort we totally understand…this one is definitely a favorite of ours.

So choosing the best Sandals resort in Jamaica really comes down to a few key questions…

1) Beach Vs. Pool

  • Are you beach people or is lounging around the pool with a beach nearby preferred?

2) Budget

  • Remember that Sandals includes a lot so your budget goes farther than you think.

3) Lifestyle

  • Lots of activities on and off property? A pool and a drink? Partying beachside?  Nightlife? A laid back experience? Towns to explore?   What do you want to do on your trip?
