Sandals has three resort locations in Montego Bay, but the Royal Caribbean is the most luxurious with no shortage of extravagant, butler-included rooms and suites.

Often when we think overwater bungalows, we immediately think of Bora Bora, but they are right here in Montego Bay too. Did I mention they were on a private island?

As if that wasn’t enough, Sandals has a “stay at one, play at all policy”, so there are trips to and from the Sandals resorts in the area, (Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Inn (Carlyle), to ensure that each guest gets the true Sandals experience.

You can have the best of both worlds with lush vegetation behind you and the stunning Caribbean Sea ahead. The best place to experience the best of nature on the property is at the spa, nestled in the tropical hillside above the sea or the suites tucked into the hillside.

The nannies on the property make it a little easier for parents to enjoy quality time away from the children to reconnect.
