Distance from Airport

Recommended Posts

So we're trying to narrow down a resort for our DW. Does anyone know the approx travel times from the airport to the Sandals resorts in the Bahamas and Jamaica? I've done some google searches and they all have different answers! I hear Montego Bay is so close to the airport you hear the planes overhead, but what about the others?

It takes about 2 hours to get from the airport to SGOR. The driver makes a stop halfway to the resort.

In Jamaica it depends on the resort you pick. I am staying in Ocho Rios and like Jamaicabride09 said it takes two hours with a stop, but I stayed at the Sandals in Montego Bay before and the resort is just about on the runway. It is a matter of how much time you want to spend traveling. The bus ride is fun. The driver makes the best of it. At least that was my experience on a previous trip.

I was at SGOR last May and it took exactly 2 hours to get to the resort. The thought of it drove me nutts at first but we all napped on the bus so when we got the resort we were ready to go exploring. It is a very smooth transition from the airport to the bus to the resort and then to your room. Before you know it, no matter where you are, you will be sitting by the pool enjoying a Pina Colada...lol

Thanks for the input, I found a site that gave example times of how long it takes including getting baggage, and catching the Sandals bus for each resort, it was interesting. We'll be flying twice during our honeymoon (we're switching islands after the wedding) so I don't want to be too far from the airport. Two 2 hour drives on a bus in 3 days is just too much!

I would be thinking the same thing! I would not want to waste that much time out of my trip if I was switching islands! We talked about going back with our children and when researching I took into account the bus trip with them and decide we would stay in Montego Bay when we take the kids!

Yea that probably would be too much bus/flying etc in a short time. I went to OR in 2005 and absolutely loved it and the drive wasnt bad. Particularly since the driver stopped half way and we grabbed a couple red stripe for the drive! But yes it was 2 hours not including the hour plus we spent in line going through customs getting bags etc. have fun!!! :)
