Let’s Talk About Sandals on Jamaica’s Sexy South Coast

April 3rd, 2019 janicee-admin


It’s been a long time since I visited. In the next few months I am going to be telling you about my upcoming trip to Jamaica and Sandals.

We are flying on Southwest to Orlando and spending the night at the Hyatt Regency Orlando International airport. Let me tell you this is the place to stay, it is right in the terminal before the TSA check point. You can pick up your bags go up the elevator and you are at your hotel. There are two really good restaurants and nice comfortable bar. You can check-in for your Southwest flight to Jamaica 4 hours early, which means you can take your luggage down or have a bellman take it, check-in go to breakfast relax in your room and head for the gate about an hour before the flight. When returning after clearing customs get on the tram to the terminal and up to your room in a matter of minutes.

This year we are returning to Sandals South Coast. We love this resort. Last year we spent our time relaxing in the pool. This year we have a full schedule that I will be sharing with you. I will be talking more about our experience at Sandals South Coast, we will be there for Reunion Week, I will tell you about those events for all the past guests. I will give insight on the tours we are planning to take: Floyde’s Pelican Bar & Catamaran Cruise, Black River & Appleton Estate Rum Tour and Let’s Go Native Negril Adventure.

I will also be visiting Sandals Negril for an afternoon on the Negril Adventure Tour all the new information will be coming. Last we will spend a couple nights at Sandals Montego Bay so I can personally experience the new restaurants and see the new Wedding Chapel and Over the Water Latitudes Bar.

Now a little on the beautiful sexy Sandals South Coast which is nestled on the south-west coast of Jamaica and is only approximately 75 minutes from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay and 60 minutes form Negril, one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations.
