Sandals South Coast

Sandals South Coast

As a part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about popular destinations by visiting them firsthand. Recently while in Jamaica, we had the pleasure of staying 3 nights at the beautiful All-Inclusive Sandals South Coast Resort & Spa for couples only. This resort impressed us with its beautiful grounds, delicious food, and luxurious suites which all overlook the two mile beach. 

We Recommend This Resort For:  Couples, Honeymoon, and Milestone Anniversaries for those who want to get away from it all


Sandals South Coast is a European-style Beach Resort & Spa.
