Sandals Montego Bay By Lisa Niver

I loved my stay at Sandals Montego Bay! You can watch my journey with my videos! I will share some of them here and hope you get to visit and see the property yourself!

Remember there are 21 restaurants so this all-inclusive does not mean you are going to buffet after buffet. Actually, you never have to eat at a buffet at all. You can order your favorite treats all day long! The drinks and the activities are included too! My favorite thing was going Scuba diving and watching the stunning sunsets!

VIDEO #1: Welcome to Sandals Montego Bay Jamaica Feb 23, 2019

I flew from Los Angeles to Miami and then into Montego Bay, Jamaica and the jewel toned water of the Caribbean was gorgeous. I went to the Sandals Resorts Lounge at the airport, made a few new friends and had a welcome drink. I was transported by private car a short distance to Sandals Montego Bay. I ate at the Jamaican Jerk Shack with a view of the water and a breeze in my hair. Remember at Sandals Resorts everything is included and it is adults only! The food, drinks, activities are included. There is no tipping allowed. Get ready to RELAX! I loved my swim-up suite. There is a giant soaking tub on my patio and my lounge chairs are literally in the pool! The mini bar has full size bottles and they are refilled daily.

Video #2: Join me in Sandals Montego Bay Jamaica

I loved my first day at Sandals Montego Bay!I had sunset drinks at Latitudes Over-the-water bar and decided to eat at Tokyo Jo’s! There are so many restaurants to eat it. You can stay at one resort but play at three and eat at over twenty different restaurants with Sandals Royal Caribbean and The Inn at Sandals. It is beautiful, it is relaxing and Sandals is waiting for you!You can have your photo taken at sunset and then eat with your toes in the sand at Dino’s pizza and Stewfish. Play basketball, swim in the pool, stroll along the water, sit in a hammock over the water! How will you choose? You can have a candle light dinner by the sea or work out in the fitness center. Float in the pool on a raft or go scuba diving. It is adults only and all of the restaurants, drinks and activities are included. There is no tipping at Sandals. I loved my dinner at Tokyo Jo’s so much I ate there two nights in a row! There is live music at night and you can have dessert at Cafe de Paris!
