Sandals Grande Ocho Rios was Grande! We loved how large the property was; always somewhere new to explore and enjoy and it never felt crowded. It was also great that none of the restaurants required reservations and we never had a long wait before getting seated. Another fun Sandals trip!

Me and My husband just got back from Sandals Grande in Ocho Rios Jamaica and believe me we absolutly did not want to leave! The only down fall we have to say was the bus ride to the resort from the airport was a little long, but well worth the ride, the resort is beautiful, the staff is always smiling... More

I would highly recommend this Sandals resort to anyone looking into visiting Jamaica, however I would say that you should stay on the Rivera side of the resort because it is in walking distance to the beach, versus the Manor side requires a short bus ride across the way to get to the Rivera side!

We had such a great time at this resort! This was my first trip to this particular Sandals location and I was very impressed. Our room was on the Riviera Side and had a spectacular view of the ocean, and always had a well stocked fridge. Our maid was always so nice and left towels folded up like different shapes... More

My husband and I went to Sandals for a total of 2 weeks to get married and honeymoon. We got married at the resort on the beach. It was absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed many of the special activities, including sailing, snorkeling, catamaran ride, Dunns River Falls, ziplining, and many more. Sandals truly made everything about this most important vacation memorable... More
