Just a word: amazing!
We loved our stay at the Sandals Montego Bay. Our butlers, Mykal and Nasha, pampered and spoiled us in all possible ways, making our vacation unforgettable.
The day we left was my birthday. Mykal and Nasha prepared a very nice hot bath and left in the room a bottle of wine, two slices of a chocolate cake and some other snacks, plus an happy birthday card! ^^
We were in one of the butler suites, few meters from the beach. Exceptional position and a wonderful suite.
Every morning we had the towels on our sunbeds, every day there was something special in the room, and every morning we had some drinks in a coldbox delivered directly at our
beach umbrella, with what we like the most.
Our butlers also brought us the lunch directly at the sunbeds, passing every now and then to check if we needed something.
Also the other resort personnel was often passing by asking if we needed something.
We were also provided with a mobile phone to call them in case of need. And here come the only issue of the vacation: one day we forgot it on the table at the buffet restaurant. I realized that a couple of minutes after leaving the restaurant, but when we come back, it was gone. The management understood that was not our fault and someone took it. As everywhere, alas, there are rotten apples, even in the best baskets... and this is surely a "best basket" ;)
The waiters and waitresses at the various restaurant were always wonderful, kind and ready to anticipate our needs (thanks Petrula ) and the food was always very good.
The place was very very calm, no shouts, everybody was talking in a low voice, the perfect situation for a relaxing vacation, that was what we were looking for.
The food in the restaurants was good. The one in the buffet restaurant could be improved a little. Sure the scrambled eggs were not the best we had ever eaten, and the bacon was too crispy for us, but there was a good variety of food and most of it was pretty good.
Of course, if you want to eat better, the four restaurants in the resort are a better choice, even if you have to book them in advance.
In our case, our butlers booked them for us on the first day, so we had all the evenings settled the first day ;)
One thing we missed was the presence of a small table at the sunbeds, where to put our things. In our opinion can be an improvement of the beach setting, but the sunbeds were large enough to be able to put the things at our side.
The Resort is situated along the airport, so every now and then there is an airplane taking off or landing. We are used to the planes, so was not a big issue for us. You just need to stop talking for a minute, time for the plane to take off. There are few planes though that depart from the airport, so is definitely not a problem.
We were looking for a relaxing vacation, no problems, no stress, just relax: well, we got exactly what we were looking for, and we got it so much that we have already booked for next year!
If you are looking for a relaxing and pampered vacation, the Sandals Resort at Montego Bay is sure a place that can give you that.
