Default Sandals Resort, Jamica

Has any one done this day trip? Can you elaborate on it? How long is the ride, do we have to get our own taxi or will they send shuttle for us? What all is included, worth it? Do we tender at this port? Any shops at the pier? How far is Margaritaville from Sandals?

Thanks everyone!

We went to sandals in jamaica as an excursion offered through Royal caribbean. I think it would be better to do it on your own. As a ship offered excursion you do a lot of waiting in the very hot terminal for them to gather everyone, make sure every one is there, boarding the bus, more waiting. You are docked at this port so you could easily grab a cab and head there. Only about a fifteen minute ride. I don't think you would be disappointed in sandals. The food is excellent, drinks top shelf, nice beach area, swim up bars, clean facilities, and you don't have to worry about your stuff what so ever. There is alot of shopping at the pier that we went to after sandals. At the back of the shopping area is Margaritaville which we also went to. It has a really fun atmosphere. Pool, DJ, beach area. I know Jamaica sometimes gets a bad rap but we really enjoyed our day.

so Margaritaville is at the pier where the ship is docked? How do you go about getting the pass to get into Sandals if you get cab there on your own? Do you know what the price difference or what they charge if you go it on your own...I know ship cost. How can we find out the cost before hand?

Thanks!
