My husband and I celebrated 20 years of marriage by heading back to Jamaica in 2017. We spent our first honeymoon there, and always said we’d go back. So today I would like to share about our stay at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Kensington Cove Building.
One of my favorite things about the Sandals Royal Caribbean is the beauty of the grounds. While it is not a huge resort, everything is laid out very well. And the Sandals Royal Caribbean Kensington Cove Building is the farthest block of rooms. If you don’t like a light stroll, you may not like this particular building.
However, the upside of the long walk is the quiet of the Sandals Royal Caribbean Kensington Cove building.
In the 20 years since we have been there, they made a few changes to the resort. But one thing I have to mention that didn’t change: the hospitality of the staff. The housekeepers, bartenders, and restaurant servers, each and every one of them made our stay wonderful.
So now I am going to go into more detail about this end of property.
Exploring the Sandals Royal Caribbean Kensington Cove Building:
When we made our reservations the first time, we had concierge service. Now it is called Club Sandals, and it is worth every penny. Once we were checked into the resort, a member of the Club Sandals team escorted us to the Kensington Cove building at Sandals Royal Caribbean. One of the first things that greets you is the building name plaque.
Welcome to your home away from home. All the rooms in this block face the ocean, so you need to walk along the backside to get to your room door. It is nice because the walkway is covered, and has some great views to go with it. We asked for the 3rd floor just for the views.
And our housekeeper kept it spotless, so that mattered more than anything! If I needed something, she was always quick to provide it.
Once you walk past the bathroom, you are greeted by a huge 4 poster bed. Normally I don’t sleep well away from home, but I found the bed to be extremely comfortable.
The flowers and towel art that was done each day was sweet, and a nice touch. The nightstand had an I-Home/alarm clock combination. There was also a desk that had several plugs for your electronics.
There is also a nice sitting area. We enjoyed a breakfast there the day after our vow renewal. Again, other travelers complained about the size, but we had no issues with it.
And then, of course, is the balcony area. I have to agree that the size was smaller than expected. However, it more than met our needs for our trip. After all, we spent more time on the resort grounds than the balcony.
And the views from that balcony weren’t too shabby, either.
One of the other things that made the Sandals Royal Caribbean Kensington Cove building so special and unique is that it had its own pool area. If you are on the older side like us, the quiet of the pool here is most welcomed.
So there you have a quick and easy tour of the Sandals Royal Caribbean Kensington Cove building. So if you are headed to Jamaica, be sure to consider staying here. You won’t regret it.
Paradise is waiting for you!
