Sandals Montego Bay, opened in 1983, was the first of what would prove to be an immensely successful all-inclusive resort model. Parent company Sandals International, a home-grown Jamaican company, now operates 16 resorts throughout the Caribbean.
Even though Sandals has grown beyond the confines of the original resort property, it’s often fun to visit the seminal location in search of what exactly it was that drove a brand’s success. You’ll find that, even decades after Sandals Montego Bay welcomed its first guest, there’s still plenty of draw. Even during a recent visit in December, 2018, it was apparent that the property is still a work in progress as Sandals continues to add facilities.
Here’s a quick list of things to love about Sandals Montego Bay.
