I have just returned from a two week stay at Ocean Sands and I have to say that at no other hotel have i felt so at home. The staff were over and above friendly and the manager Brandon was always available if you had any concerns. The hotel is dated so if you are looking for a five star... More

My second trip since February and this time we got married after four years. We did it on the dock at ocean sands. Stay was great and staff amazing. For the price and the location if your a regular to Jamaica like I am then you will feel like your right at home.

We stayed for one night here. The hotel has its own little beach and is quiet. The rest of Ocho Rios I would not recommend but if you want to stay a little then this is the place. Food is served here in a small restaurant sticking out into the sea. Rooms are spacious and have fans and sea views.

I stayed in this hotel for 8 days end of feb/March stayed at this locations. Located downtown Ocho Rios, in the heart of everything. If you want the impersonal All-inclusive holiday - this is not it. If you want some insight into Jamaica and Jamaican hospitality - this is the place for you in this family run hotel. The staff... More

I stayed at Ocean Sands a week through March 12, the hotel is situated in the perfect spot, close to stores, restaurants, reggae bars and lounges, and best of all its sits right on the beach. Ocean Sands also offers an excellent menu when it comes to breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food is delicious. My room had the... More

Me and my husband stay there for 5 days in very nice room with a sea view, bed was big and comfortable.The price was the cheapest in Ocho Rios. There is pool and lovely restaurant/bar just by the sea. We just really enjoyed the stay.

After reading some reviews, I was really looking forward to stay at this hotel. I saw some pics and loved the pool/beach view, and of course the price! I thought I had scored a great deal but I was quickly disappointed. As soon as I arrived, I encounter some minor problems. First, the reservation I made through booking.com was less... More

From our first look at the bar area and the fantastic view, we were sold on the hotel. It really is a little gem with bags of potential. It is located in just the right spot, easy access to local resturants and the hotel has its own maestro in the kitchen...J who is an absolute wizard. The staff are friendly... More
