Featuring an on-site water park, Sunscape Splash Montego Bay is a great economy option for families with young children. The grounds are usually crowded with kids (and not exactly tranquil), the beach is small and narrow, most rooms are fairly basic, two restaurants and two bars are exclusively for Sun Club guests (the Sun Club suites are better in quality, but can be significantly more expensive), and some guests complain about the overall level of service; but the resort offers excellent dining variety, fairly good food for an all-inclusive (especially for the price range), separate kids and teens clubs, an on-site spa with nine treatment rooms and hydrotherapy, and a decent on-site fitness center. The rooms come with large flat-screen TVs, furnished balconies or terraces, and re-stocked minibars; some have bunk beds. Activities include scuba diving, snorkeling tours, great on-site snorkeling (Montego Bay Marine Park, Jamaica’s first underwater National Park, is just offshore), rock climbing, dance classes, kayaking, Hobie Cat sailing, mini golf, beach volleyball (on a subpar court), and movies on the beach. The water park has a pirate ship, two large waterslides, and a lazy river. There isn’t much in the surrounding area, but a marina with deep sea fishing and a Hard Rock Café are within walking distance. The sister property next door, Sunscape Cove Montego Bay (Ba1), is a little more expensive but offers a quieter atmosphere, better rooms, and access to all Sunscape Splash amenities.
