Limited chaise lounges by pools
Sandals Montego Bay (an adults-only, all-inclusive resort) sprawls across 26 acres and touts 10 restaurants and six swimming pools. Plus, it offers the amenities of three Sandals resorts in one. Sandals Montego Bay's "Stay at 1, Play at 3 Program" package provides free round-trip transfers between Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Inn, meaning guests have access to a dizzying array of restaurants, bars and swimming pools. Back at Sandals Montego Bay, accommodations feature mahogany furnishings, four-poster beds and HD smart TVs, all near the largest private beach in Jamaica. But for the ultimate indulgence, recent guests suggest upgrading to a room with butler service. For those looking to splurge even more, opt for a relaxing massage at the on-site Red Lane Spa before taking a wild Reggae Cruise on a catamaran. The property also offers all kinds of free activities, such as scuba diving, tennis, beach volleyball and themed parties. Overall, past visitors enjoyed their stays here, though some cautioned that the pool decks lack adequate seating.

Critic Reviews


The luxurious Sandals Montego Bay is a solid beachfront all-inclusive option for couples who don't want to travel far from the airport or cruise port. The 1981-opened hotel is mostly modern thanks to renovations in 2018, but some of the 264 rooms still have colonial-style decor.



The largest private beach in Montego Bay is the highlight of this Sandals – one of the most popular upscale resorts in the Caribbean. It's one big party, despite the planes that zoom overhead (the airport is minutes away, making it a good option for quick trips).



On a half mile of beautiful private beach, this all-inclusive, couples-only resort has upscale guest rooms and lovely spacious suites. Luxury services are provided with the top-tier room categories.

The resort beach is beautiful, the plantation-style furnishing is quite tasteful and guests get free access to Sandals' other Jamaican properties. It's just a few miles past Sangster International Airport.
