Review Summary


  • Fantastic beach
  • Great activities for kids and teens

  • Average food
  • 75-minute drive from Montego Bay airport
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line


The Beaches Sandy Bay Resort has one of best beaches in Jamaica, with golden sand, swimmable waters and few vendors. It offers clean, comfortable rooms, average food, and tons of kid and teen facilities. In short, it's smaller, cheaper and more low-key than nearby Beaches Negril.
