topless or nude sunbathing at Sandals Grand Ocho Rios

we are going to sandals Grand in Ocho Rios in Feb and I was wondering if you could sunbathe topless or nude anywhere or the property,

Also, are cabanas and umbrellas covered in the all inclusive?

Cabanas are not covered. Umbrellas are first come, unless you have butlers. No nudity and the sandals site says no topless. The only place to do that at any sandals is at src on the island and the sea side is c/o.

Well you are not suppose to but if you can find a place away from everyone I am sure that it would not be a problem. But they do not have an area and they discourage this type of behavior.

If you get a room in the upper section (#7 on the map) with one of those semi-private pools and you will probably be able to do what you like. Worked well for us.

A few years ago there were a couple of women that went topless at the beach and in the water by the pier. No Sandals staff told them not to as they were on more than one day. Nobody must have complained. It really was not a big deal.

Hey Tex, I don't recall ever reading a no topless posting on the Sandals site.

Janet J: We've never stayed at SGR, but we've been guests at Sandals resorts in many countries for 10 years now...every single trip we've seen the occasional woman sunning topless in a discreet manner on their sun lounger. This includes, Royal Bahamian, La Toc, Mo' Bay, and Royal Caribbean. Worldtex is correct in saying there is a designated clothing optional section of the Private Island at Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort and Private Island. That's our favorite spot. A very chill vibe, no activities, no noise, absolutely NOTHING happens in the c/o section.

Used to be on the faqs page. But I see they just don't talk about it.

If you have a villa, that would probably be your best bet. However, you may share your villa with 3 other rooms, so they may look our their window at you, etc. On the overlook by the Beach club, there is some pretty private seating. You may be able to do it there, but not might get much sun :)

Our favorite spot at sgr was the deck by the beach club. It has multiple levels and is simi private. Our next fav was our villa pool. No one ever used it but us. The water was cold in march.
