Sandals Montego Bay Reviewed for 2024


Sandals Montego Bay is Sandals flagship resort and one of the best resorts not only in Jamaica but in the Caribbean. Sprawling across 26 acres and featuring nine restaurants with four swimming pools, it sits on a private beach and includes the amenities of three Sandals resorts in one. Stay here and you have full access to Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Inn which brings the total restaurant count to twenty and bar count to twelve.  The rooms are well appointed at Sandals Montego Bay and your accommodations will feature mahogany furnishings, a four-poster bed and if desired, we can book you into one of the newest “Love Nest” suites which features luxurious accommodations and Sandals premier Butler service.
