Sandals | Montego Bay Review

Sandals Montego Bay is an upbeat all inclusive resort on Jamaica’s largest private beach.  I love this resort because it’s so close to the airport.  Sandal’s Montego Bay is just five minutes form the airport so it’s perfect for a long weekend getaway in Jamaica.  Your travel time is so reduced that you also get to enjoy every last minute in paradise, and also all inclusive cocktails, before catching your flight back to reality.

Also I love the Sandals Montego Bay resorts because you can Stay at one and Play at all three resorts.  Just take the free Sandals shuttle to and from the Montego Bay area Sandals resorts to access the 20 gourmet restaurants that are all within 10 minutes.  Also the majority of the rooms, suites, and restaurant at Sandals Montego Bay sit on the shore-line.

Caribbean Wedding Tip:

Do you want a tropical Caribbean Wedding?  Sandals Montego Bay has a wedding chapel right on the grounds.

Sandals Resort Budget Saving Tip:

Club Sandals enhanced concierge experience is a nice upgrade for your all inclusive vacation.  Also this Sandals resort has some of the most affordable Butler Elite exclusive Beachfront Villas.

Sandals Montego Bay Resort Review

This is one of my favorite all inclusive Caribbean resorts for a quick get away.  Flying to Jamaica from the United States for a three day weekend lets me get on the beach in within moments.  Sandals Montego Bay is located very close to the MBJ airport so you are not wasting your limited vacation time on transfers or sitting in the airport.  This resort is just 5 minutes from the airport.

I spoke with many guests at Sandals Montego Bay when I was there and online that have been to this resort for their wedding or honeymoon and they all gave it rave reviews.  The  resort has one of the highest repeat guest rates out there.  I was personally concerned with the resort being so close to the airport that it would be a negative, but the guests loved the proximity.

A big advantage to Sandals Montego Bay is the Stay at one Play at three Sandals access to the other Sandals resorts in Montego Bay.  This means you have 20 gourmet restaurants all within 10 minutes of you.   If you want to head to Sandals Royal Caribbean for the day, you just take the free Sandals shuttle.

Sandals Montego Bay is a lively Sandals resort with activities revolving around the amazing stretch of the white sand beach.  You are always just steps away from the sea at this resort.

For weddings Sandals Montego Bay has a beautiful non-denominational Chapel ideal for Weddingmoons.  This resort is ideal for a wedding and/or honeymoon.  Please contact us and we can tell you all about all-inclusive wedding and honeymoons and even how to get a free Sandals wedding.
