I have visited the Sandals resorts in the Bahamas, Jamaica (Negril) and Jamaica (Ocho Rios). Of the three, Sandals Grande Riviera was by far the very best! The resort is beautiful and rather large...we sunned, partied and ate dinner at a different place each day and night! The staff is very friendly and accommodating...staff at the Bahamas resort were not as friendly or helpful.
There is plenty to do whether it's lie on the beach, go to performances at the resort's theater, or attend the many functions provided by the resort (e.g., chocolate parties, beach parties). In addition, due to the layout of the resort, it NEVER feels crowded!
As a few others have mentioned, the food is average to slightly above average, but in no way bad or unappetizing. Everything is FREE, including drinks made from top shelf liquor!
If you can afford it, the butler service is SUPERIOR!
