So glad we stayed here! The resort was great and the staff was extremely helpful and courteous. We didn't get a room with a view (didn't pay for one), but we only slept there anyway. Friends of ours had pool view (awesome view); other friends had a room with a private pool (nice). Our room was very comfortable and in... More

This was the 2nd time we stayed at the Grande IOcho RIos Resort. The 1st was our honeymoon. We loved it so much and told so many friends. A few years past and it was still the best trip ever. We said, "we're going back and we are taking friends." That we did and we did everything. Tried at least... More

Our stay at the Grande Ocho Rios was awesome! The weather was beautiful, the people were so helpful and the entertainment was great! We had so much fun each night at the piano bar with our singing bartender. He was quite funny and made sure everyone had a good time. During the day, we spent a lot of time on... More

Sandals is our favorite place to stay in the Caribbean and the Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Beach & Villa Resort is magnificent. The staff was great, the room was perfect, and the view of the ocean was exceptional. We only book our Caribbean vacations at Sandals. Love is all you need!

We have fallen in love with Jamaica, yet again! This was our 2nd trip to the Island and we loved it! As with any vacation you cannot expect everything to be 100% perfect, but if you're pretty easy going, it's not usually a big deal. We had a few minor glitches but nothing to cry about, and everythig was always... More

The food was fantastic at all the restaurants that we tried on the resort. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly and they could not do enough for you. The beach area was a little rocky but was good enough although other sandal resorts had better beaches. The room was nice and very clean and was restocked... More

As a guest, the destination wedding was perfect! I understand the bridal couple had some problems with arrangements though. The weather perfect! The wait staff very friendly but slow, slow. Accommodations grand and clean. The grounds lush and meticulous. The grounds too large as we had to take a bus to the Caribbean, but the buses very frequent. The main... More

Our stay was much anticipated, but it didn't live up to the expectations we had. The safe in our room was broken and took 2 days to fix. The air conditioner in our room was sub par and therefore we had to shut the suite door just to keep our bedroom half way cool. The bathroom windows had not glass... More

We had an incredible time at Sandals Ocho Rios! It's very near another Sandals location so we took the free transportation and were able to enjoy the activities and restaurants that both had to offer. There was a tropical storm/hurricane warning while we were there and the staff did a great job to keep us informed, our tickets were changed... More
