First and foremost, the people working at this resort take their jobs seriously and provide a good product. 95% of my complaint with Sandals Ochi regards decisions made at the senior executive level, not at the resort site. Specifically: -The Sandals website crows that

I would like to thank Jeremy & Richard for all of their help, we didn’t really know what to expect from the butlers but they made everything so much easier. We didn’t have to think about anything, not even running the bath! The food was great, so many options. Our favourites

My wife and I recently stayed at Sandals Ochi for 5 nights. It was our first time staying at any all-inclusive resort. We were very impressed. Our room was on the mountain side, not the beach, but we had pools and restaurants that we could easily walk to in just a few minutes

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
First off, this was our first trip after 18yrs alone as a couple. We spent the extra money on our Sandals all inclusive going off their reputation. The meals were all good. Nothing really stood out as exceptional. My wife’s favorite was the breakfast at Le Gormand. We also

My experience was great except our television did not work the entire time. Maintenance came to look at it but it was never fixed. Unfortunately We couldn’t enjoy the television when we were in the room. It was fuzzy. We wanted to be put in another room but we were never told if

Everyone has different opinions on ground or 1st floor. Ground will have direct walk out access to the pool. But 1st floor will have more privacy on your balcony. These rooms are in 4plex buildings. 4 rooms share the pool. For a sea view you would have to upgrade your room to the HV or GP. These are the butler village rooms that have an oceanview. The butler village is a quieter place to be at this resort. None of the rooms are near pools, bars, or beaches. That's what I love about the butler village. You can party it up at a pool or beach during the day and come back to your room for peace at night.

Hi just came back - to be honest I didn’t see anything - though my partner who does smoke did have someone approach him in resort ...... to be honest to be a smoker was bad enough , you could only smoke in designated areas outside , even our own balconies were no smoking areas - we and others we spoke to ignored this

They’ve got Johnny Walker, Chivas (I think), and some down-market blended scotches in the rooms. I don’t think single malt is available included.

I have heard of guests using cash. Some aren't comfortable putting a card on file. You can absolutely use cash for excursions and spa, ect. HV1 will share a pool with 3 other rooms. Those villas are 4plex units. 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs. Butlers are not 24/7. They work 7am-8pm or 10pm. You can still order room service 24 hours though. Yes, you can order breakfast for your room or have your butler set up dinner on your patio or in your room. Butler guests enjoy more perks and service than club or luxury guests. Just know before you go, each butler helps 4-8 other couples also. So if you order lunch by the pool or dinner to your room, it might be a little wait. The perks are still good. Some guests dont realize the butler isnt their own personal butler, and it can be a little let down when realized they can do alot for you, but are helping several others at the same time. Ochi is also the only Sandals resort that butlers cannot reserve beach or pool chairs. We loved having a butler at Ochi. We had them bring us lunch to the pool, a cooler of drinks to the firepits, dinner from restaurants to our patio. You'll have a great time.

Thanks for posting your question! If you are looking for late-night activity, there are several options for fun, like the Piano Bar which closes around midnight, The Rabbit Hole and Ocean Beach Bar which generally close at 1:00 AM, and The Polo Lounge which usually remains open until two. Please note that schedules are subject to change, especially around holidays or when theme nights and similar activities take place. Be sure to check your on-property newsletter for the most up-to-date information.

"We had mid-level room which had all the amenities needed."
"Choose wisely. The Sea Side is very busy and can be loud till 1-2am. Makes it hard to keep the doors open for those ocean waves. "
"If you have a hard time with stairs request a bottom floor. Also if you want a bar in your room you must go club level or above"
"Noysure what you mean here "
"We had room 7256, it's an upper HVI with a little ocean view from the balcony and it was beautiful!."
