My sister and I went to the SJG for a quick girls trip March 15-19. I had been to Jamaica and several all-inclusives before and this was her first time. We knew going into the vacation that SJG would not be a 4-5 star hotel so we were not that terribly upset by some of the resort's shortcoming but a... More

My family (48 of us) and myself travelled to Jamaica during the last two weeks of February for my brother's wedding. The wedding itself was amazing. He chose the garden to have his wedding and everything was gorgeous. We did not have a photographer for the wedding so everyone brought their own cameras. However, the one complaint was that the...

Returned from SJG March 19. Stayed 1 week - 2 adults and a 14 year old. Accommodations were comfortable - 2 double beds and a bathroom. We were in a standard room, no upgrades - had a view of the bay, mountains and Ocho Rios. Quite lovely. Buffet was fine; a la cartes were fabulous. Jamalicious cafe served both typical... More

Amazing hotel in the heart of Ocho Rios. Ideal for a vacation filled with partying and activities. There is something going on at every moment of every day... activities pool-side, sand sculpting competitions, beer drinking contests, activities for kids, crab races, pirate parties, beach-side barbecues, cooking lessons, sailing lessons, trampolines, water-slides, karaoke in the lobby with the outstanding "Maurice", and...

Air Canada vacations states this property as a 4 star. It is more around a 3 star. The rooms are very old and dated. We tried many times to get on the ala carte reservation list.. Near the end of the week we just showed up at the front and tipped the guy and got in every time with no... More

Jamaica Grande was a great hotel right on the beach, facilities were really good and we only left the complex twice, once to go up Dunn's River Falls (a must for everyone) and once into the town although we were un-nerved once outside the security of the Hotel grounds due to the locals waiting to sell anything & everything. We... More

Overall the experience was above average. There is some type of entertainment going on most of the day. Check in and out was smooth. Even when there is a line it moves fast. We did not have a problem with the elevators. Just a short wait. We ate at one of the specialty restaurants. There were quite a few empty... More

I was a bit worried about our hotel after reading some of the reviews, but there was no need to be. The hotel is big, clean, bright, lively when you want it to be and chilled at other times. We spent most of our time chilling on the south beach, would have liked a little more shade, but apart from... More
