Sandals introduces free Wi-Fi, long-distance calls

Sandals Resorts has announced it will soon introduce free Wi-Fi and complimentary long-distance phone calls in Jamaica for select room categories in 2013. These special perks are provided specifically to guests staying in Concierge and Butler room categories, at any of the seven Sandals resorts in Jamaica. The initiative will be launched March 15. Along with the free Wi-Fi, guests in select room categories will be able to make free long-distance calls to Canada and the US (and to U.K. landlines only), as well as local calls to Jamaican landlines, beginning June 20. These phone calls will be offered exclusively through travellers’ personal smartphones with a Sandals Resorts’ online app, which will be free and available to guests through the Apple and Android App stores.
