Sandals South Coast
Sandals South Coast 5* can be found on a two-mile stretch of the island’s coast, providing guests with direct access to white-sand beach and pristine water. The adults-only resort is enveloped within a 500-acre nature preserve and, as such, brings guests closer to Jamaica’s stunning wildlife and greenery. Offering accommodation in a variety of European-themed villages, Sandals South Coast also boasts luxurious over-the-water bungalows which feature spa-style bathrooms, a private patio and direct access into the sea. The all-inclusive resort has all sorts to keep guests amused throughout the entirety of their holiday: there’s everything from a wedding chapel to a spa, scuba diving pool and sports courts to ensure your trip to Sandals South Coast is one to remember for a long time to come.
Jamaica’s south coast showcases a variety of hidden beach gems for hotel guests to discover. Given its distance from the bustling north coast, guests at Sandals South Coast can unwind in relative seclusion, enjoying the on-site facilities to their heart’s content. A selection of tourist hotspots can be reached within an hour’s drive in each direction. Highlights include Croydon In The Mountains, a working foothill plantation that offers tours around its grounds, and YS Falls which is home to 7 picturesque waterfalls and natural swimming pools. The closest airport to the resort is Sangster International Airport, a 90-minute drive to the north.
All 360 rooms feature luxurious fixtures such as stocked fridges, coffee makers, LED TVs and iPod docking stations. Rooms are neutrally furnished with touches of colour in the soft furnishings and rich mahogany furniture, while ensuite facilities include a shower/bathtub combo, a toilet and a hairdryer. Larger beachfront suites and romantic honeymoon suites are also available, as well as one-bedroom apartments that feature marble-decorated bathrooms and private butler service. There are also a dozen over-the-water bungalows on offer, each kitted out with luxurious features such as glass panel floors, spa-style bathrooms and a sun deck with stairs that lead straight down into the sea.
Food and Drink
Nine restaurants are dotted around the resort, catering for every type of palette. Giuseppe’s is an Italian restaurant that specialises in pizza, pasta and Mediterranean desserts. Meanwhile, Asian cuisine is served up in Jasmine’s, while the menu at the quaint Cafe de Paris boasts pastries, crepes and hot beverages in a romantic little courtyard. Flavoursome Caribbean cuisine is available at Bayside restaurant, Eleanor’s and The Jerk Shack, while Mediterranean and seafood favourites can be enjoyed at Schooners seafood grill and Neptunes. Lastly, don’t miss a touch of the Far East at the Sushi on the Sand restaurant. As well as these restaurants, the resort has seven on-site bars, each offering a wide selection of premium spirits and soft drinks.
Sports, Games and Entertainment
Lounge in one of the expansive outdoor pools, take a yoga class in the fitness studio, or play a game on the tennis courts: Sandals South Coast has a huge variety of all-inclusive land and water-activities on offer for all. Those wanting to try their hand at scuba diving can take on lessons in the separate scuba pool, while relaxing treatments can be enjoyed in the on-site spa. There’s plenty for groups to get involved in, with tennis, basketball and squash courts to hand, as well as water skiing, snorkelling and windsurfing.
