Nothing beats jetting off to a tropical destination for a couple’s vacation – especially when that destination is a picturesque Caribbean locale like Jamaica. It’s even better when you’re headed for an all-inclusive getaway where you’ll only need to figure out what to eat and when to drink once you arrive. Well, that and what you want to do first: bask in your luxurious abode or get out and explore the beautiful Caribbean island you’ve landed on.

Jamaica is ideal for couples’ vacations, especially in areas like Montego Bay where you can find some of the best all-inclusive adults-only resorts on the island. For example, Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Royal Caribbean, two gorgeous all-inclusive adults-only resorts in Montego Bay, Jamaica, provide an excellent opportunity for you to rekindle your romance in an intimate setting and enjoy a romantic couple’s vacation in paradise. The benefits of the all-inclusive experience and the adults-only concept include privacy and fewer interruptions (no kids running around!), which helps ensure that every single moment of your getaway is memorable.

Of course, there are lots more reasons why an all-inclusive adults-only vacation (particularly at a Sandals all-inclusive resort) may be right for you, so keep reading to find out!


What makes Sandals stand out for couples’ all-inclusive vacations?

Opportunities for romance, privacy, and intimacy

If ever there were the perfect reason to book an all-inclusive vacation, it would be for the kind of uninterrupted privacy that often comes with vacations of this type. Sandals caters strictly to adults, so the entire resort is yours to stay and play. You’ll interact with other couples during your stay, all with the same objective – making the most of a tropical vacation with an emphasis on romance!


Kid-free zone

Kids are amazing, but not necessarily when you’re trying to sink into a romantic vacation. As Sandals is an all-inclusive couples-only resort, your entire experience will be just about you and your other half… minus any screaming, tantrum-throwing kids you might have otherwise encountered!
Couples with kids (who’d prefer not to leave them behind) can find their own slice of paradise at a Beaches Resort, which focuses on family vacations and features certified nannies! There are two Beaches resorts in Jamaica: Beaches Negril and Beaches Ocho Rios.

Gourmet dining

The only thing that can top all-inclusive dining is Sandals' all-inclusive dining, which comes with lots of global cuisine served at the restaurants! Sandals makes it possible to enjoy a plethora of dining options in Montego Bay – Sandals Montego Bay has unlimited gourmet dining at 12 restaurants, while Sandals Royal Caribbean has 9 incredible dining options. To make things even more exciting, guests of Sandals Montego Bay have dining access to Sandals Royal Caribbean and vice versa (that’s 21 total dining options no matter which resort you choose)!


Stocked premium bars with premium spirits

Mediocre isn’t a word you’ll need to get familiar with ahead of your Sandals vacation in Montego Bay. This is something you will notice in the liquor department – Sandals makes a point of only serving premium brands of alcohol! Around the resort at the Sandals all-inclusive bars, and in every room (where you’ll find a stocked mini-bar), you can indulge in this tasty inclusion!


All accommodations are optimized for adult luxury and made for romance

Sandals' accommodation choices are truly “as unique as your love”, and you can discover this for yourself during a vacation of a lifetime in Montego Bay. The all-inclusive accommodations at Sandals were designed with romance in mind and you’ll find lots of options whatever your preference.

From the amazing rooms and inclusions to the friendly staff and welcoming ambiance, guests at Sandals can step unapologetically into a vacation where luxury is always included.


Secluded spots and fire pits for romantic rendezvous

There’s plenty of room at Sandals for you to feel like you’re on your own little island paradise. Find the nooks and crannies in your resort that can be your little world of romance, away from it all.

Settle in next to a fire pit that’s right beside the ocean and take in the stunning views, while keeping your toes warm as the temperature drops ever so slightly when evening comes around in Jamaica. You and yours can use this time to get to know each other on a deeper level, while you bask in the perfect and peaceful ambiance of the Caribbean.


Private candlelight dinners (optional)

Candlelight dinners are super romantic, but how can you really know until you’ve tried it out for yourself? These events might not necessarily be at the top of your priority list while at home, but while vacationing at an all-inclusive adults-only resort like Sandals, you should definitely consider sitting down to an all-inclusive candlelight dinner and reigniting your love.

Always wanted to explore a haunted house? You may get an opportunity to do just that in Jamaica by visiting the Rose Hall Great House.

The locals sometimes refer to this property as the House of Horrors of Jamaica and have many scary tales to tell about the ‘White Witch’ herself. This doesn’t scare people out of going on tours here though – in fact, this tour has become so popular that, nowadays, there are trained actors on the property who get in on the fun by spooking anyone who lets their guard down!
