Jamaica All Butler Sandals Resort

I LOVE this resort.  Everyone has a butler, it has a beautiful boutique, quiet feel, all rooms have ocean views, and you can go to the other Sandals & Beaches Resorts in the same area and hang out/eat/enjoy the amenities, where they can not come to your resort!!!

There is also a Villa with a private chef/private pool etc that you never need to leave if you prefer!!!

Let’s do your Destination Wedding here, just the two of you or a group, I can help you, or vacation/honeymoon/babymoon, whatever you are wanting, I can help make it happen!

Till next time

Sandals Montego Bay Jamaica

Well today seems like a great day to post about this property, as one of my couples just arrived there today for their babymoon and will get to enjoy their swim out room and this resort that is like new, as well as the Royal Caribbean just down the road.  Above is the lobby.  When i first visited this resort in 2005 this was the entertainment room and the ceiling was like a puffy circus tent and it was, well, kind of cheesy!!  This was the original Sandals Resort and it was definitely tired.  Since then i came back in 2016/17 and got to see the change starting and in 18/19 to see it now complete. The entertainment room is now the lobby and the first thing you see when you walk in is the beautiful blue ocean through the other side and it just draws you in.  The resort is now hip/cool and a great spot to hang/vacay and there are fun things to do in Montego Bay area if you want to leave the resort!

this area is right through that lobby door, a great seating area to have a mocktail or cocktail and look at that ocean and enjoy the sea breeze.

this was my room on my last stay and the view looking down the path back towards the lobby/restaurant/main action area.

One of the swim out butler rooms with ocean view, and there is now a new block with swim out rooms with garden surrounds, a great use of a back block of rooms that will now make them very wanted!!

This is a bar surrounded by a pool with a mini lazy river, very relaxing with that cocktail in hand, yes i did!!

And guess what, right now all rooms at Montego Bay get a private transfer in a luxury vehicle, no idea for how long, but for new bookings, so call/email/text/dm, whatever you need to do, let’s get you there, most of the world is closed to American’s now and for who knows how long, so if you are looking to vacay, honeymoon or even if you wedding plans were ruined due to Covid, lets get the two of you there or a small or large group of you and do the wedding right here!!

Till next time

Southcoast Sandals/Jamaica

I first visited this resort right as it was opening, and loved it.  Quiet/spread out, all rooms have a view of the water!!  Had not been back, so it was long overdue.

The first overwater bar Sandals had and a great spot to have a drink it was!!  And one of the signature large Sandals pools, it was nearly empty every time i enjoyed it.

I was there as they were breaking ground for the overwaters, very exciting. If you are looking for calm/relaxing and more beach than you could use, this is the resort for you!

Till next time

Ochi Rios – 2 Resorts

So the resort that starts with the least expensive room options of all the Sandals Resorts happens to be in Jamaica and in Ochi Rios.  The hub for cruise ships, Dunns River Falls, town, activities, so how lucky are you.  Above was my last room at the Sandals where i was in a butler villa, attached to another, where we had a lovely pool to share, I never saw the other couple.

Lovely beach/sand/restaurant options and activities at the base of the resort.

If you were 2 couples travelling together where i stayed last trip would be perfect as you just open up the living/lounge area in-between the 2 bedrooms to enjoy but yet you have your own privacy/space as the bedrooms are at each end.

 

Of course one of the largest signature Sandals Pools would be at this Sandals, its quite the party hardy resort if you want to partake.

You could also have ocean view rooms in the tower next to the ocean and be on that beach very fast every day

On the pic above, those wee huts are massage or private dinner huts!!

Then for the families, or groups or friends (that don’t want to share a bed at Sandals) in Ochi Rios is one of the Beaches Resorts.  Different villages/styles of accommodations to suit your style as always, budget, and size of your group.  My fave is the Greek Village.

View from a Greek Village patio

2 beaches to enjoy, busy side and quiet side

Looking along one of the rows of Greek Village rooms, it’s 3 levels.  Also the Sesame Street characters are all around to add excitement to the kids vacay, and you adults do get to vacay too, they have kids programs from only a few months old up until late teens, so mom/dad, grandparents, can do some adulting, quiet time, fine dining, spa etc.

Huge pool and water slide action for the kids at Beaches and then back to Sandals where there is a big easy, you go into the Rabbit Hole and must know the password!!

Inside the Rabbit Hole, and the big pool at Sandals Ochi at night

Really pretty lobby area at the upper area of Sandals Ochi.  For those staying at Sandals Ochi, you can catch a cab if you want and head over to Beaches to dine/hang out there, something tells me it won’t take long and you will be back to all the options of what/where/how at Sandals Ochi.

Let me get you there.  Everyone deserves a vacation, honeymoon, or lets do your destination wedding at Beaches, where everyone can attend, then the B&G head to one of the quiet/private butler suites at Sandals Ochi where you never have to leave your suite or even hop on a plane and head to a Sandals Resort on another island!!!

Till next time

Sandals family Resorts – Beaches Resorts

So if you love everything that a Sandals Resorts offers, the range of room types, service options including butlers, the quality, all the food and beverages being included, resort entertainment and activities included, airport transfers included, but you now have kids, or you are a group of friends, guys or girls, or both, and don’t want to share a bed (yes Sandals only does one bed per room, no rollaways lol!!) or want to do a multi family trip and a Sandals Resort isn’t going to work, then a Beaches Resort will work for you, they offer all the above and more because you still want adult time right??? so the options for kids/all age groups to do to keep them busy is awesome.

And yes, they will come to the bedroom and say goodnight to the wee ones!!

Let me get you there!!!!  Beaches Resorts are located on the islands of Turks & Caicos (right on Grace Beach, its gorgeous), and two in Jamaica, Negril where again the beach is lovely/best beach in Jamaica, its very quiet/relaxing and you have access to do other fun things on that side of the island, Ricks place is well worth the boat or cab ride and some rum drinks with fun music to listen or dance to while you watch silly peeps jumping off the cliffs, lol, and Ocho Rios the port are of Jamaica, so more busy/things to see/do outside of the resort, this resort is made up of 5 villages, the Greek Village is my fave!!

You can also incorporate a renewal of vows if you want, or have your friends/family come to celebrate your destination wedding with you!!!

Till next time

Jamaica overwater bungalows-Sandals

Did you know you don’t have to go to Tahiti to find overwater bungalows??!!  Well you don’t, I have been selling Sandals all-inclusive Resorts in the Caribbean since 2005 and a couple of years ago they were the first resorts in the Caribbean to add overwater bungalows.  The first ones were at the Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, and i was very fortunate to be there with a small group of wedding planners that sell Sandals and we were lucky enough to be able to get a quick 10 mins in one between the cleaning from a checked out guest ending to a new couple arriving at the resort to go in.  These have been sold out from the minute they hit the market, so successful were they that they were added to another Jamaica resort and in St Lucia, more on those resorts in another post.

The pics above are what you see when your butler opens your door to the villa and the balcony area with your own plunge pool, 3 levels of deck for enjoying , an outdoor shower, lots of seating including a fab big round flat swing you can lie on and just enjoy the view.

The bathroom and outdoor shower areas, yes, i would use all the above, lol

Decisions decisions, swim in your own plunge pool or the ocean??!!

Lets do dinner on the lower deck, closer to the ocean tonight honey xoxx

Think i will take that stairway to heaven….

Should we nap on the netting and fall asleep looking at the wee fish below or you can swing me to sleep on the swing?  I’m the one covered in pillows, lol

You are picked up at Montego Bay airport and have a luxury vehicle private transfer to the airport where your butler meets you, then escorts you to the boat for your transfer to the island where the overwater villas and bungalows are off of.  You have access to the island where there is a restaurant, pool, lots of lovely beach, but the rest of the resort guests who can access the island via a larger boat transfer are not allowed to come down the pier where the overwaters are, so you are very very exclusive.

My fave place would be the lower deck sitting in those bucket seats reading and sipping my champagne and saying, how lucky am I.    aaaahhhhhhhhhh

The pic with the crane is the overwater bungalows starting to be built at the other Jamaican Sandals Resort lucky enough to get them.

 

The guests on the main part of the resort look over and wish and wonder!

the glass to the water at the foot of the bed gives a beautiful light in your villa all night.

View from the bedroom area

       

This resort has 2 options for the overwaters, one with the big deck/plunge pool, referred to as Villas, and a 2nd with smaller interior and deck and a soaking tub referred to as a bunglow.  I had one couple last year spend 8 nights in a bungalow overwater, they would have stayed in the Villa but they were not available-just fyi they are always sold out/first to go, its amazing.  Even getting 8 nights in the Bungalow was hard, they were flexible with their dates and had to actually spend a night prior to going out to the bungalow in a suite on the main land part of the resort.  When i go looking for rooms those 2 room types are always the ones showing big red SOLD OUTs on them!!

Remember with Sandals it’s all inclusive, airport transfers are included, all food/beverage, resort activities and entertainment, resort snorkeling and if you dive resort diving, if not certified you can get certified quickly and for a low cost in 1/2 a day and then enjoy all that free diving, and with this resort you are just down the street from the Sandals Montego Bay Resort and there are shuttles you can catch to go back and forth, so you can enjoy all the amenities and restaurants/bar/lounges over there as well, and there is no extra charge, all included.  Pay for 1, stay/play at 2.  there are also excursions and activities off resort that can be arranged for you too, so you don’t get there and waste time trying to work out what else you may want to do.

Call, email me, let’s get your vacation, honeymoon, group trip, destination wedding planned in Jamaica at one of the Sandals Resorts or on any of the other 5 Caribbean islands they have Sandals or Turks & Caicos where we have a Beaches Resort, for families, or friends that don’t want to share a bed at a Sandals!

Till next time

Lisa

St Lucia honeymoon, vacation or even Destination wedding

I have been a certified Sandals Specialist since 2005 and have sent many honeymooners to the all inclusive Sandals Resorts in the Caribbean.  I have been to nearly all of the resorts but in the past year there have been a lot of upgrades to a lot of them, so I headed out and checked up on 8 of the resorts in Jamaica, St Lucia and Barbados, over the past 8 months.  It was great seeing the upgrades but I saw a change in the dynamics of the guests at the resorts.  Lots of older couples on vacation, lots of couple groups on vacation, younger couples on vacation alone and of course honeymooners, but such a great diversity now that I can really say the Sandals Resorts are for everyone, so let me take you there no matter who you are, we all need a vacation.

The pics on this post are from ST Lucia, where there are 3 resorts and you stay and get to play at all 3, dine at the restaurants at all 3 and enjoy the amenities at all 3.    But the pics on this post are all from the Grande St Lucian Resort.

All inclusive, food/beverage, the resorts water sports, snorkeling and diving if you are a diver, yes all included.  Butler to take care of you or not, a variety of accommodations that means you will find something that matches your priorities and when you consider everything that is included, such really good value, and the quality and level of service is hard to beat in the Caribbean.

Let me take you there, whatever your reason.
