2022 Luncheon with Sandals BDM Event McLean
2022 Luncheon with Sandals BDM Event McLean

Here's my quick overview of each of the resorts that Sandals and Beaches offers.  I've been to all.  I'm heading to Sandals Royal Curacao August 2022.  I must visit a resort at least 3 times to understand the room categories and what is unique about the property. 


Sandals Antigua:  calmest body of water for floating, most romantic based on open space per guest and quiet environment

Sandals Barbados:  two over the top properties within 100 feet of each other, a foodies paradise

Sandals Grenda:  challenging air but only 5 minutes from the airport on landing, has the feel of a football stadium  with one entrance being the pink sand and Caribbean Sea the other the downward road from the airport. 

Sandals Grande St Lucian:  feels like the south pacific but only 7 hours of flight time.  Main headquarters for all of the water sports and scuba diving training,  lay back and relax.

Sandals La Toc in St Lucia:  the best of both worlds on one property plus a 7 hold golf course on property.  Not the place to go for the sea but wonderful for the pools.

Sandals Halcyon:  by the sea with a lazy river and lots of culinary restaurants.

Sandals Emerald Bay Exuma:  50 shades of blue plus a Merle Norman golf course.  All club and butler rooms with a view of the sea.  Listen for the sounds of a saxaphone playing from the tower in the evening.

Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau:  a private island plus lots of beach area revealing see to your toes water.  You clear customs in Nassau for returning home is a breeze.

Sandals Montego Bay:  10 minutes from the airport in Jamaica, is the flagship of the Sandals empire, all rooms have been updated with perfect views of the sea and room luxuries.

Sandals Royal Caribbean: Jamaica's answer to over the water villas plus a private island plus littel alcoves of beaches for privacy and quietness.

Sandals Negril:  travel the coastline in Jamaica to the 7 mile beach with remarkable sunsets. 

Sandals Ochi:  Yes, it takes 2 hours of fast Jamaican bus travel but centrally located for all of the wonderful excursions in the Dunn's River area.  Two sides of the property give you two sides of opportunities for fun in the sun.

Sandals South Coast:  Travel over the mountain in layed back fashion to a totally waterfront property and more over the water villas.   Soak in the peace and tranquility of this special property.

Beaches Negril:  perfect for everyone because it has double beds for families and children.  walk the 7 mile beach or just explore the water park.

Beaches Ochi Rios:  this has become my favorite family property.  Yes, a long drive but a good value and rooms are roomy for families.  A great Destination Wedding location.

Beaches Turks and Caicos:  was going to close but is here to stay.  One long property with 5 different villages and miles of beach.  Yet, you never get lost and everything is just around the corner.  All ages experience the ultimate beach experience.


That's my personal take on the best Sandals and Beaches resorts in the Caribbean.  Come meet me and let's talk.

Best service ever!
Mary June “MJ” has been a Godsend to us. this year! My husband and I had to postpone our Sandals travel twice, once for medical reasons and most recently due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She was so helpful and patient and ensured that we were getting exactly what we want to make our vacation perfect. She spent over five hours on the phone one day rescheduling our trip, because the lines were busy as thousands of travelers were scrambling to do the same. MJ was determined to get everything settled and put our minds at ease. We highly recommend her services, which are next to none.

Thank Goodness for MJ!!!!!!!
I am a repeat client of MJ (Mary June Williams) and this is why? On Aug 23, 2021, I bought airline tickets for a May of 2022 trip to our favorite Sandals Resort in St. Lucia. As I am accustomed to doing I shot MJ a copy of my confirmed flights. She contact me by phone shortly after and asked why the names on the confirmation did not match my and my wife's passports. She went on to tell me that not having an exact match which included our middle names will be a problem. She highly recommended that I find out why? The very next day she called me and told me that after a sleepless night from worrying she insisted that I correct the issue as she feared that TSA would not allow us to board the plane unless the names on the tickets and our passports were an exact match. So, I followed up as she highly recommended and I was successful in making the changes. MJ is the most thorough, detail oriented and caring travel agent I have ever worked with and will not work with anyone else.
