There are many positive things to say about this all-inclusive resort--I'll just mention a few of our favorites. 1) We loved the ocean-front, walk out room, with no butler. We had super-easy access, just a few steps, to beach chairs by the water, and a private patio setting for

This was our 4th Sandals trip and we were again reminded why we keep coming back! Our butler team, Nigy and Nicole, did an outstanding job of making sure our every need was met and surprised us throughout our week with small gestures that added to our experience. Thank you! We

My husband and I stayed at the over the water bungalow’s for your honeymoon. To start off by saying truly a experience every couple should try. Not only was it beautiful and private but the service from our Butler (included with bungalow) helped make our stay even that much more

We have been to Jamaica Whitehouse/South Coast 3 times previously and loved each and every visit. This year my wife decided to split our trip into 2 different properties. South Coast and Royal Caribbean. She also for the first time switched to a Butler suite versus a walk out

We love this place, and we looooove having butler service. We spent the first 3 nights in a swim up room. It’s was really private and quiet we loved it - would absolutely book it again. We spent the last 4 nights in an overwater bungalow (bucket list item had to do it). We

You are to only smoke at designated areas. NOT on your balcony. There could very well be people trying to enjoy their balcony close to you that don't want to smell your smoke.

The clothing optional beach is in a very discrete area of the island and posted. You can easily avoid this area without accidentally stumbling on it. There are 2 other beach areas on the island or plenty of beach area at the main resort. There may be some people topless at other areas but very rare. They may ask the person to cover up IF someone complains.

Is there a local store around for things like sunscreen and etc? if I forget something?
There are a few options: 1) Pay high prices at the resort gift shop. 2) Walk down the main drive and cross a fairly busy street to get to a shopping center. or 3) Take the free shuttle to Sandals Inn and walk down the "Hip Strip" which has many different shops close by.

Trip to the private island expensive? Or is it included?
Thanks for asking this question! The private island is a part of your all-inclusive experience, with shuttles going out throughout the day. Just hop on and take in all the island has to offer! :) Hope you have a great time and be sure to book a dinner at the Royal Thai at the island! ;)

Do they offer clothing optional beach area? Thank you
The clothing optional section is a small area on the back side of the island. It is not very big with maybe 12-14 lounge chairs with umbrellas. There is a short concrete wall between the chairs and ocean with an opening with steps into a nice swimming area. Very private area and when we were there, they had a waitress come by and get drinks when requested.

"First floor will put you either right at the beach or right at a pool."
"if you want quite check out the rooms at the Kensington, or the rooms by the driveway."
"Rooms closer to the main entrance will be noisier due to nightly stage shows which normally cease at 10pm"
"Try to get Ocean Front ! Or a bungalow over the water."
"Butler Suites may cost more, but well worth it!....especially for reserving daily beach chairs."
US$499 - US$1,387 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
