We LOVE Jamaica!!! Ok, it has been awhile since our trip…. July but I have taken forever in uploading my photos to the computer. Since my phone has taken over so much of my photo taking, my camera photos rarely get uploaded!
The hubby surprised me with the idea of going on a short getaway for our anniversary. Asked me a few days before, “where would I like to go??”
My answer is always the same…….”a Sandals resort” these resorts are my happy place!! So we hopped online and headed to the Sandals site. Then we assessed which made the most sense travel wise, since we only had 4 days to spend there and then budget. We decided on Sandals Montego Bay because it is literally next to the airport. So I figured that would save on travel time for sure!
Sandals Resort – Vacation Deal Of The Day
Travel day came and we were psyched. Flight was great, thank you American and off we went. When you arrive there is a Sandals lounge at the Montego Bay airport. You head into the lounge where they give you cold drinks and you wait a few minutes for the shuttle to arrive. We grabbed some red stripe and hopped on the shuttle. We were there in a matter of minutes and the lobby was so gorgeous it did not disappoint. We had booked a Club Level room so we ushered to the Concierge where our check in took a couple of minutes and we were given champagne.
Taken immediately to our room and it was freaking breathtaking. The view of the ocean was amazing. If you are looking for a great room at Sandals Montego Bay, I suggest the Beachfront Grande Luxe Club Level Junior Suite with Balcony Tranquility Soaking Tub (GBT on the site). Our room was gorgeous, newly renovated, spacious and a great big soaking tub on the balcony. No complaints here!
The thing we always do first is change into our bathing suits and hit the beach. One thing we were worried about was the proximity to the airport. The planes take off not too frequently and it is actually pretty awesome to watch them take off over head. Kind of a game while you are sitting in the ocean. We would laugh and wave at the planes with a cold drink in our hands!
They were renovating some of the buildings while we were there but this did not disturb us at all and should not deter people from booking. They blocked off the areas and we had no issue with it. I can not wait to see the improvements next time we visit!
Food wise, this resort is so much better than your typical all-inclusive resort. So much to choose from and delicious. Our favorite restaurant is Stewfish, it located right on the beach, kick off your shoes and put your toes in the sand while you eat!! There is even food late at night, who wouldn’t want jerk chicken wings at midnight?? We loved eating breakfast daily at Cucina Romana, with a view looking out on the ocean. Oh and we also did a special candlelight dinner on the beach. I suggest doing this if you are visiting Sandals Montego Bay for an anniversary or birthday!
We only had 3 nights there but it was incredible. I can not recommend Sandals Montego Bay enough. We will return and most likely get the same room category next time or maybe upgrade to the swim up butler suite!
I would love to hear from you! Do not hesitate to ask me questions about Sandals Montego Bay or tell me about your favorite Sandals Resort 🙂
