Drive time from airport to Sandals Resorts

This question usually means:
"How long from the time I land at the airport until I am on the beach with a cold drink?"
Note: You can greatly reduce your transfer time & ride in comfort with a private transfer.
A general time line is:
00 Land at Airport
10 min  Clear Immigration
20 min  Claim Bags
25 min  Clear Customs
30 min  Arrive Sandals Arrival Lounge

Note:
For most trips you should be through immigration and customs and at the Sandals Airport Lounge within 30 minutes. Once at the Sandals Lounge how quick Sandals gets you to your transfer varies. The longest we have waited is 45 minutes. Once on board you may get moving right away or wait for 20 minutes or longer.  If you have arranged a private transfer ( Jamaica, St. Lucia) you will be on your way within 5 or 10 minutes.

RETURN TRIP
At the end of your stay Sandals will make sure you are back at the airport at least 2 hours before your flight is scheduled to depart. Generally transfers depart every hour on the hour. Your transfer will usually depart the hotel at the top of the hour that will allow for the times below. Example: You are staying at Sandals Whitehouse and your flight departs at 2:20 pm. Your transfer will probably leave the hotel at 10:00 am.
