We had our honeymoon in the Butler Suites. Everything is beautiful!! Our Butlers Jermaine and Oshane were perfect!! I would recommend here to be the spot for your honeymoon. They decorate your room, make sure you are set for the day, and make sure you have the best time!! Food is amazing and the entertainment sets the mood!! We will... More

My husband and I vacationed at Sandals Grande Riviera July 20-25, 2014 and had a good time but the resort and room were not what we expected. There are two sides to this resort- hillside and beach side. The hillside are all butler suites (you can stay on this side without utilizing a butler but they don't tell you this).... More

Heads up, travel time from airport to property 1.5-2 hrs depending on traffic and driver. Had fun listening to driver showing us points of interest but van was a bit worn and seats killed my back. Return trip was awesome because van was newer. Once we arrived the other five couples were escorted to a private reception area and we... More

Please avoid this Sandals resort and save yourself the disappointment. Let me preface my review by saying that we have been to other Sandals resorts and loved it...I highly recommend the Sandals Grande St Lucian. First off Sandals needs to stop advertising this resort as their "newest and grandest"...it should be changed to Sandals newest USED, spread out, and minimally... More

My husband and I just got home from the Sandals Grande Riviera and we had a wonderful time. This was our first vacation together and Sandals made everything so easy. We really enjoyed being able to actually chat with a sandals representative before we left to answer any questions we had. The food was good, the service was amazing and... More

We went to Sandals for a friend's wedding for 3 nights. Our flight landed at 10:00 am and we reached the hotel around 2:00 pm. Our driver took his time showing us points of interest and we stopped at a bar/restroom as well. After waking up at 4:30 am, I was not in the mood for this and would have... More

We had a wonderful time, this was our second stay at a Sandals Resort, and we will most definitely continue to choose Sandals for our vacations. Accommodations - we stayed on the Hillside of... More

Firstly I'd like to apologise for the delay in writing this review. We visited this Hotel in May 2014 and landed at Montego Bay Airport. There is nothing new to report here that hasnt already been covered off in numerous reviews around the transportation times ( 90 minutes at 6:00pm on a Friday evening) other than to say that we...
