We have ben going to Sandals properties for several years now and they continue to impress every time!
The Grande Riviera is a beautiful property! Pool, beach and garden areas are all spectacular. The dock is great for getting close to the ocean and listening to the waves crash.
The real story is how great the staff is. Let's be honest, any resort on the ocean in Jamaica is likely to be beautiful. What makes the difference is the staff who takes pride in their company and the property they work at. The staff are great at Sandals and really make the experience a vacation to remember.
We want to give special kudos to Anna and Ryan our butlers and to Shauna, Josie, Ed ward, Raimone, Ashley at Bayside, Kamar, Ricardo in the polo lounge, Bishop and Capt Tim. They all made our trip very special. I don't mean to overlook the rest of the staff but everyone was great!
Food was great as always and bar service exceptional!
One thing we noticed was the large groups tended to book here. It tends to take away from the couples atmosphere but we stayed clear of the groups and enjoyed ourselves immensely!
Sandals delivers every time we visit, and we have been to Sandals 8 times now.
