A little bit of background... This was both mine and my husband's first all inclusive vacation, we usually like to have more "adventurous" vacations, but we wanted to really just relax. We have been married for about 5 years and have never had a traditional honeymoon, also. I myself am no stranger to nice hotels and accommodations, but my husband... More

When we booked the vacation the advertisements stated we'd be on the beach which was not the case. You have to take a shuttle across the street. Major construction, all hot tubes were broke, food terrible would not recommend this resort. We ended up moving to the whitehouse and finally enjoyed our vacation.

Dear Sally, We regret that you were not satisfied with some aspects of your stay at Sandals Grande Riviera. Guest satisfaction is our top priority and it was very disheartening to learn that you left with an unpleasant impression of the resort. While we do periodically perform renovations to ensure that we maintain the highest standard of luxury and quality,... More

Honeymoon at Sandals Grande Riviera We had a great time at SGR! There were only a few minor situations in which we were not impressed but for the most part - we were happy, had a great time and plan to return to SGR when we get the opportunity. Arrival: When we arrived to the airport, we arrived the same... More

Very large resort set in beautiful grounds. We had a butler suite, consisting of a large lounge, with fully stocked fridge, large bedroom with enormous bed (so high I had to jump on it!) the bathroom was also large and we had a private pool. We had the services of two butlers, it took a couple of days to understand... More

We traveled as a family for my sisters wedding. Though the property is under development, the grounds are well kept and the facilities are inviting. The staff were very friendly and inviting and helpful. We were all treated like royalty. My sister enjoyed her wedding experience and we will encourage anyone to have their wedding here.

Everything about this resort was amazing. Right from the time you land until you leave again the group at this resort make you feel like you are home. The two hour bus ride to get to this resort was not an issue for us. It gave us an opportunity to see some of the country side. Plus there was a... More

Visited In Sept 2013. Going through customs was smooth. We were escorted to an holding area for Sandals before transport and the vacation begins with snacks and drinks. The shuttle drive was a little lengthy and upon arrival our room seemed smaller then the pics but it was clean and the location was nice. The restaurants were amazing, one night... More

We had the pleasure of one week here to celebrate my Husbands Birthday. We had a villa pool with Butlers Denton and Ray. We were spoilt our entire stay. We went horse back riding, swam with Dolphins and I did some diving with Dennis. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The food and drinks are excellent and the weather... More
