Sandals Royal Caribbean vs. Sandals Montego Bay

If you’re trying to decide between Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Montego Bay (see #5 below), there are a few key differences worth knowing.

Sandals Montego Bay tends to have a livelier vibe and better nightlife, while Sandals Royal Caribbean tends to be the more quiet and relaxed of the two (which is what we tend to prefer these days).

And, while both resorts are close to the airport, air traffic noise tends to be more noticeable at Sandals Montego Bay.
