We had a great experience at Sandals in Ocho Rios. Butler service was the best decision Scott & Stacy were the best of the best, from scheduling our dinners so we didn’t have to make decision to making sure we had what we needed. The resort is very nice, we would definitely revisit

Hotel's Favorite
My husband and I visited this Sandals resort for the first time in April 2018, after having vacationed at the Royal Bahamian in Nassau, Bahamas twice, and falling in love with Sandals. We had an absolute blast at Sandals Ochi, and the resort grounds were beautiful and the staff were superb. We stayed on the Riviera, or Beachside, with a stunning view of the beautiful Caribbean waters and mesmerizing sunsets, in a Butler suite for 4 days, and then on the Hillside in a Butler suite for the remaining 3 days of our trip. This resort was perfect for us, as we love being active and social. There is always something going on, with so much entertainment, even poolside. One of our favorite nights is Beach Carnival night. The restaurants and food on the resort are exquitisit, as is our experience thus far at all Sandals Resorts that we have visited. In our opinion, you can't really go wrong with Sandals! We met so very many wonderful people from everywhere, including the awesome resort staff. The very next April (2019) we made a return visit to Ochi to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We again, LOVED EVERY MINUTE of our 7 days there, and we have another trip booked. If you are looking for an exciting, fun and entertaining resort, this is the place. While there, a visit to Dunn River Falls is a must. (if you are in good shape and/or not fearful to hike)

You need Ear Defenders rather than Sandals. Don’t come here for any kind of romance or relaxation. Very loud (c)rap music everywhere. Deafeningly loud by the pools and on the beach. Self indulgent DJs playing unrecognisable expletive ridden rap music. Plenty of spare sun beds as most guests evacuate after their complaints fall on literally deaf ears.

I’ll preface this review by saying that we have nothing against Sandals and have been to multiple resorts including Ochi before. We’ve experienced the first class service which influenced us in returning for this trip. However we were left wondering if things have changed at this just this resort or all of them. I’ll provide a couple of things we were underwhelmed with. We arrived and expected something or some acknowledgement of my wife’s birthday. I asked the front desk and they told me I should have told the agent during booking then looked at the notes and said. Yep you did and shrugged. Two days out of 5 our room wasn’t cleaned at all and we spent most of these days on the beach. Low water pressure in the room and toilet. Closet door was broken. We were on the first floor I would assume by the laundry where they were pushing carts until almost midnight. My wife was pregnant and ordered ice tea at almost every meal as soon as we sat down. This request was so extreme I guess that on multiple occasions we finished our entire meals without out even an a acknowledgment that we had ordered a tea. Most of our meals averaged 1 1/2 hours and most of it was spent waiting on the food. This seemed consistent at all of the restaurants and the other guests we spoke with. Most of the staff wasn’t enthusiastic like we’d experienced in the past. Multiple times we walked by staff and weren’t greeted. On our arrival transfer we waited 45 minute for anyone to even greet us in the lobby. Upon checkout we didn’t receive any instructions upon checkout or monies owed. We also had to self inquire about our check out. We had a few highlights and praises around some of the staff and activities. Dana at Soy was absolutely amazing and went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable experience when we dined there. Mike and Cruize at the dive Center were great and made the experience enjoyable for everyone aboard the boats. Highly recommend diving with the entire staff. They were all great. Shoyan in loyalty has one of the best personalities and is defiantly a favorite amongst guests. To sum up the review we did enjoy some of our experiences but wanted to take the time out to outline some areas for improvement.

The service and butler service was amazing. If the butler wasn’t helping me and my wife then everyone else would lend a hand. Such and very nice and clean place to stay we will be back for sure. I hope it will be soon
