Seriously, don't listen to any of those negative reviews. The place was spectacular.The room was big and clean (a bit sandy but that can't be helped). The food was incredible and the unlimited bars were so amazing. The only issue I had was that the beach and swimming water was not that big. Not a huge complaint though. Oh and... More

Magnificently presented resort, with incredable attention to detail. The way that everything is presented from the grounds to the rooms from the food to the staff everything is superb. Above all though it is the staff that make your stay so special. Gia & the reception staff always have a warm smile & can't do enough for you. Delores Williams... More

We stayed at from 11/6/09-11/13/09. This was our third stay at SGOR, the first being our honeymoon in 2006. We have also stayed at SRC and SRB. We would never go back to SRB, and this was our third stay at SGOR, so we obviously like it there. At the airport, it took 35 minutes to get through the customs... More

We had a fantastic time in Ocho Rios, despite 9 out of 10 days of rain, and this was because of the friendly and relaxed manner of the staff, and the fantastic food. The entertainment was superb as many of the staff were extremely talented. We would definitely return.
