Default Montego Bay - taxi to Sandals???

Has anyone taken a taxi to Sandals? We are sailing the Conquest in October and plan to stay the day at Sandals Mo Bay. We were wondering how far is the resort and how much for a taxi? Thanks!

What a good idea to go to Sandals,the one I went to last April cost 25$ for taxi and 45$ for all inclusive.The ride is about 30 minutes but it worth to spend a very relaxing day.Have a nice cruise. Mateli from Quebec City, Canada

I highly recommend it. It is clean, the staff is friendly, the beach is beautiful. There are a lot of lawn chairs, they have jerk chicken for lunch and there is chair side bar service. It's only draw back is that the swimming area is very shallow--which may be excellent for kids.

It's obvious they are set up to handle a large crowd, so they must have them. But we were practically the only ones on the beach.

At least I hope it is still nice, we there there in February 2003.

Also check into the history of Ms. Rose Hall. It's very interesting.

In fact, go to www.montego-bay-jamaica.com
Click on 'What Do To'
Scroll down and click on 'Rose Hall Beach'

If I'd have done that and saw those crowds, I probably would not have went, maybe you will hit a happy medium.

I remember the charge being $6 per day per person

Thank you for the information. It is nice to hear first hand of someone that went to the Rose Hall Beach Club. Did you take a taxi there? There are 5 in our family. Will they take 5 in a taxi?

Yes, we took a taxi. The Montego Bay Terminal has a really well-organized taxi 'stand'.
They have a large area with a line of taxis. There is a large wood sign with a map of the island on it and dispatchers standing around helping you decide where you want to go. They then hail a taxi for you. The rates are standardized. It is a recent set up because the last times we were there, you were pretty much on your own. We noticed in 2003, that many of the islands are doing a lot better job of getting people around than in previous years. We've been there in 1990, 1993 and 1995.

Rose Hall Beach Club is only a few minutes outside of downtown Mo Bay. Don't remember what we paid.

Also, with five in your group, they will have a van of some sort. There were six in our group in 2003 and we all taxi-ed together.

Have fun.

Thank you for the info regarding taxis, very helpful. How about getting a taxi back? Will there be ones around there for the return or will you have to call for one?

Anyone that has been to Rose Hall Beach Club in Montego Bay, could you please respond if it is difficult to get a taxi back to the ship? Is there a taxi stand there? What is the entrance fee to the beach club?
