SGOR/RIU I am confused...what is the difference?

Hello -

This probably sounds REALLY stupid, but SGOR and RIO Ocho Rios aren't the same thing are they?

Thanks -

SGOR (where you are booked to stay) is Sandals Grande Ocho Rios is owned by the Sandals chain of resorts.

RIU Ocho Rios is owned by the RIU chain of hotels. Both are all-inclusive and there are several of both chains in Jamaica. RIU hotels are all over the world and Sandals are in the Caribbean only. You can look either one up at their web sites:

www.sandals.com or www.riu.com.
