The views from the beachside building were outstanding! Note: look carefully at the room selection if you are not into the "night life noise". Kerian in concierge was Outstanding! Any call for assistance was IMMEDIATELY addressed and concerns were truly 'listened to' from a patron perspective . I Also names to note: Tourique in the Riveria bar area (who also... More

My new wife and I just got back to St. Louis after a week long trip at the Sandals Resort in Ocho Rios with family and friends, and I have to say that I'm pretty depressed we had to come back. It was the best time we've ever had. We had about 30 people with us to help celebrate our... More

We had an amazing stay at Sandals grande riviera resort recently!!!!! Everything about the resort was top notch from check in to check out. We did a 6 night stay on the villa side which included a butler. Our villa was clean, roomy, and the king beds were pretty comfy. Our butlers oshane and jermaine were amazing! They did so... More

This was our first time at this resort but our 7th visit to Sandals, 6 of which have been in Jamaica, we just LOVE it here! We choose to stay on the Riviera (beach) side vs the Manor (hill) side. We like to be near the beach, and near the activities/restaurants/etc. We spent all our time on this side except... More

This was our first Sandals resort vacation but won't be our last. We had a wonderful week's vacation at the Sandals Grande Riveria Beach and Resort in March. We stayed on the butler side and were pampered all week long with two fabulous butlers who took care of our every need. The restaurants were wonderful - with a great variety... More

So, you have read countless reviews trying to decide whether to go to SGR or not. Well, here’s my two cents worth for you as well. First, I have been to this resort twice now – once staying in the lower part and once in the upper. Second, I have been to just about every Sandals resort out there, with... More

We came for our honey moon. Lots of pools, bars, restaurants and activities. It did not feel crowded at all. Linval and Nick were two photographers who we came into contact with constantly. They did a great job every time we saw them and made the honey moon lots of fun. The swim up bar behind the amphitheater is the... More

Anybody who can give this place a bad review is just a miserable person who won't be happy anywhere. This was a delayed honeymoon for my hubby and I. We were lucky enough to be upgraded from the riviera bamboo building to the oceanfront building with views of the beautiful gardens...no butlers or concierge services. We aren't waited on at... More

This was our fist trip to Sandals but not our last. We had a butler suite and our butlers Jeremy and Richard were awesome! Food was great, rooms were great, grounds were beautiful. Diving was great, all the dive guides were friendly. Service was fantastic anywhere we went at the resort. It is a very large resort and there is... More
