Sandals Overwater Bungalows have officially been crowned the Best Resort in Jamaica. You no longer have to travel halfway around the world to stay at an all-inclusive overwater bungalow so if you have been indecisive about where to stay in Jamaica my Sandals South Coast review will should put you completely at ease.
I was invited by Sandals to provide my audience with an authentic Sandals South Coast Review so you can determine if this is the resort for your adult only getaway.
About Sandals South Coast:
Nestled on a 500-acre wilderness preserve along a 2-mile-stretch of sand, the all-inclusive Sandals South Coast provides guests with Sandals’ signature activities, plus the natural beauty of Jamaica’s southern coast. All accommodations feature patios or balconies that overlook a white sand beach.
Indulge on traditional Jamaican dishes at Schooners, Italian-inspired dishes at Giuseppe’s or enjoy dinner sit at one of the seven other restaurants on the resort. Staying at an all inclusive resort in Jamaica means the room rates covers all nine dining venues, cocktails, and activities.
Sandals Over water Bungalow Review
One of the best things about Sandals is that it doesn’t matter if you’re relaxing by the pool or along the sandy shore, your stay will be free of little crumb snatchers – all Sandals resorts have an adults-only policy, so leave the kids at home and remember no one wants your kids but you.
If the Sandals Overwater Bungalows are not on your bucket list they should be!
Close your eyes and imagine stepping right out of your bed and jumping into the ocean for a swim or watching the stars at night while listening to the water crash against your bungalow.
The Sandals overwater bungalows are arranged to form a heart over the Caribbean Sea. With views like this, the only reason to leave your bungalow is to jump in the ocean or take the short walk to the new Latitudes Bar.
If this is your first time researching an all inclusive resort do not be alarmed by price point. If you think about the airline tickets alone of traveling to Maldives the price of the water over bungalows don’t seem to bad. Once you book your reservation at Sandals you will not need to spend any additional money except for spa treatments and off property tours.
Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island in Montego Bay, Jamaica
There are 5 butler-serviced units at Sandals Royal Caribbean that are built in a heart-shaped along a wooden walkway, and attached to Sandals Cay, the resort’s private island. Here, guests can enjoy a newly redesigned pool and pool bar, along with The Jerk Shack and Royal Thai restaurants, while the rest of the resort is a quick boat ride away.” But the amenities — especially in the villas, which have infinity-edge pools and floating water hammocks — and 24/7 room service mean you really don’t have to “go ashore.”
Prices start at $4,321 per night, double. The suites feature floating hammocks, glass floors, a private infinity pool, two outdoor showers and butler service. The overwater suites are the first in the Caribbean and have been in Sandals’ plans since 2010. The Jamaica overwater bungalows are one of a kind on the islands.

Why an all Adult-Resort?
At any Sandals Resorts, you are allowed to forget the kids, eat as much food as you can, drink as much alcohol as you want without dying of alcohol poisoning, and enjoy all of the water activities your heart desires. If you want to take the kiddos on a vacation of a lifetime try Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos.
I can honestly say I’ve never had a private butler that was available to take care of my every need and boy could I get accustomed to this lifestyle.
From the moment we arrived at Sandals South Coast Jamaica our personal butler took care of our every need and ensured we had the vacation of a lifetime. James and I were led down a long wooden dock that leads straight to the tip of the heart, the 12 thatched-roof bungalows seemed like they were worlds away the rest of the 50- acre resort.
Butler Service at Sandals South Coast
The bungalows come with around-the-clock butler service, and your butler will draw a bubble, go get you ice cream at 2 am, schedule all of your activities or anything else you need to make this a vacation of a lifetime.
You’ll be provided with a smartphone so you can get ahold of your butler at any given time.
Enjoy a Caribbean sunset each night so you and your hubby can reconnect under the stars each night. The overwater bungalows in Jamaica are perfect for couples who want peace and relaxation. If you are looking for a party every night you will be disappointed.
The property screams ROMANCE!
After you have enough lounging around in the overwater bungalows head over to Jamaica’s first overwater bar. Grab a cocktail and find a lay hammock to relax in and catch Jamaica’s famous sunset.
All-Inclusive Overwater Bungalow
Being a parent will layer on more responsibilities, but it doesn’t mean that you’re no longer an individual. It doesn’t mean you and your spouse are no longer a couple. So why not reignite your marriage and unplug from technology with an all-inclusive vacation to Sandals South Coast?
Can you think of anything better than staying in an overwater bungalow, eating breakfast in bed, drinking mimosas all day at a kid-free all-inclusive resort?
There is absolutely no reason to leave your room!
HOW MUCH DO OVERWATER BUNGALOWS IN JAMAICA COST?
I won’t lie. They are not cheap but if you think about the price of flying to the Maldives ($2,000 PP), Accommodations in the Maldives ($1500 PN) not including food and activities. You could very well spend close to $20,000 on a vacation to the Maldives.
The price of the villas depends on the time of year and how many nights you want to stay in Jamaica.
If you click my link, you will be taken to the booking site where you can price out your own dream vacation. Sandals South Coast is offering my followers a 65% off deal. Again…this place was absolutely AMAZING.

Top reasons you need a kid-free weekend at Sandals South Coast:
1. REMIND YOUR HUSBAND YOU STILL FIND HIM ATTRACTIVE
The honeymoon period in most marriages has a shelf life. But does that mean you can’t bring back those fluttery butterfly feelings of excitement and anticipation everyone experiences at the beginning of a relationship? Absolutely not!
All marriages maneuver through rough patches. Some don’t survive long enough to come out the other side unscathed, which is why you have to nurture your marriage; and why I planned a vacation to Sandals South Coast to show my hubby how much I love him.
I was reminded that my husband is my superhero and it might seem like an old-fashioned idea, but this trip to Sandals was about showing a little more affection to the man that provides and supports me in every way imaginable. We’re all accustomed to the saying, “Happy wife, happy life,” but it’s equally important to remember, “Happy husband, happy household.
“We were able to focus solely on each other and not worry about the hidden cost associated with other luxury vacations we have experienced in the past.
2. AN INCREDIBLE BEACH WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS
Sandals South Coast is a must for any lover of luxury. The property is set within a 500-acre nature preserve, is perfectly positioned along a two-mile stretch of unspoiled beach where you can view both the sunrise and the sunset each day.
James never leaves home without his portable Apple speakers so we sat on the beach and listened to some old school hip-hop and laughed for hours. It felt so good not to have one care in the world except what cocktail we were gonna have next.
3. Overwater Bungalows in Jamaica
Sandals South Coast offers a variety of luxury accommodations, including the OverWater Honeymoon Butler Bungalows that are what dreams are made of. All of the Overwater Bungalows in Jamaica features luxury hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and the most comfortable bed you will ever have the pleasure of laying your body on for the ultimate sleep experience.
4. THREE EXPERIENCES IN ONE
With Sandals Stay At One, Play At Three* program; we were able to not only enjoy our resort, but we were also able to hop on a complimentary shuttle to the other Sandals Resorts on the island. This way, we could enjoy everything the three resorts had to offer and maximize our Caribbean vacation with access to additional restaurants, amenities and even have a little more fun if that’s possible!
5. A FOODIE’S PARADISE
When it comes to delectable food, Sandals did not disappoint; featuring dishes from around the world. Sixteen specialty restaurants serve everything from the Caribbean, French, Italian, and Asian fare. It didn’t matter if we were at the bar grabbing a bite to eat or at one of the 5-star restaurants; the food was always fresh and prepared with local ingredients.
My favorite dish was the fish in a foil and it wasn’t at one of the 5-star restaurants, but a little hut right on the beach. They prepared Jamaican jerk fish with spices right in front on you. It wasn’t fancy, but oh my gosh was it delicious!
6. PERFECT FOR ADVENTURE LOVERS
Unlike other resorts, Sandals offers an array of unlimited land and water sports at no additional cost. Did I say no additional cost? You can play beach volleyball, basketball, tennis, croquet, chess, bocce ball, billiards, golf on land, or go enjoy water activities; which include stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling, windsurfing, cat sailing, and scuba diving for certified divers.
Reignite Your Marriage at Sandals Jamaica
Based on my informal study on my Facebook Page, most wives see their husbands for about four hours each day. Two of those hours involve kids, and the other two involve TVs.
The majority of their interactions either happen through texts or over dinner (which primarily involves tag-team yelling at kids). You need a kid-free vacation at Sandals with your husband to reignite your marriage.
I challenge ALL moms to take a vacation without your kids this year and reignite your marriage!
Sandals South Coast is about a 90-minute drive from Montego Bay International Airport. The resort underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation last year and offers a poolside volleyball, cabanas in the sand, swim-up bars, catamarans, and paddle boards.
If you are in need of a romantic vacation the overwater bungalows in Jamaica will make you remember why you fell in love with your husband so hurry and reserve your room today because they are completely sold out through December 31st, 2019. Reserve your bungalow NOW!
Remember at Sandals everything is always unlimited and included. For more information, visit sandals.com or call 1-800-SANDALS
Jamaica Travel Insurance
I can’t say this enough but please get insurance when traveling to Jamaica! Even if you are only going on a short trip, you should always travel with insurance. Have fun while visiting Jamaica, but take it from someone who has racked up thousands of bucks on an insurance claim before, you need it.
Make sure to get your insurance before you head off on an adventure! I highly recommend Travelex Insurance.
