Sandals Carlyle Inn is a 10 to 15 minute drive from Montego Bay airport, it's a small 52 room Bed and Breakfast style resort with 24 hour room service. It has two bars and three restaurants and some of the best staff and service. Being such a small resort, the friends one makes here will be life long friends (Yes indeed, first hand experience with that.)
The Carlyle could be considered one of Sandals budget hotels, but huge on value. The beach is across the street and is a locals favorite hangout, so it's not as private as some of their other resorts. However, it's pretty awesome to watch the locals and their families enjoying their time together, and the snorkeling is very nice as well. The well known Montego Bay Hip Strip is walkable from this resort and safe to venture out.
Booking a stay at the Carlyle Inn allows you to enjoy Sandals Resorts stay at one, play at three exchange. This means you will have full access and hourly transportation to their two other resorts in Montego Bay...Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Montego Bay...leaving you multiple discovery dining choices, beautiful beaches, water sports and land sports.
They have recently started some major upgrades to the rooms with a more modern type style....I'm looking so forward to seeing the finished product in the near future.
