Sandals Montego Bay - True Beachfront Resort

In January 2021, I had the pleasure of taking my 6th trip to Jamaica to visit Sandals Montego Bay for the 3rd time and see the new renovations the resort has undergone.  Although Sandals Montego Bay is the first Sandals resort, opening in 1981, you would never know it with all the beautiful and modern enhancements. The resort has a gorgeous new open air lobby overlooking the Caribbean Sea, brand new swim up suites steps from the ocean, a fun overwater bar called Latitudes, and a new overwater Chapel for a truly unique place to tie the knot.  Each time I visit this resort, I fall a little bit more in love with its friendly attentive staff, wonderful cuisine and incredible ocean views at every turn.

We Recommend This Resort For:  Active Couples, Short Trips, Divers, and Weddings
