January in Jamaica

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Second time around for us at Royal Caribbean Sandals and the experience was as wonderful as the first visit. While the weather wasn't that great, the accommodations, food, service and resort amenities were exceptional. Special thanks to some staff who went above-and-beyond, including Michael (for a private garden tour), Carissa (for attentive drinks service poolside), Yvonne (for efficient and excellent housekeeping) and Paul (Regency table service).

Pros and some cons.

I'll be short and sweet! Pros: good food, great service, friendly staff. Kevoun at the bar was my favorite. My masseuse did a great job. (Sorry I forgot her name but I was her on 1/20 @ 9) she accomodated me not feeling well, too! Playmakers and games were all great. Night activities were fun and entertaining. Off resort tours also very good despite the rain. Cons: cat cruise was cancelled on one of the only sunny days because of choppy water, that's when cats are the best! Very upset to return home today and see on the news a state of emergency was declared for shootings and drug wars with military coming in and we had NO notification to stay on the resort. I thought that was extremely careless and dangerous. We even went througha checkpoint with a tour and still weren't told was going on so we brushed it off. Oh.. and small pools...
