We just returned from our 6 day trip to Sandals in Ocho Rios! Yes, the atmosphere was of course beautiful! White sand beaches, amazing pools, great swim up bars, generous rooms, and tons of options to eat and drink. So many options to eat and drink that in the 6 days we were there we still haden't visited all of them! What makes this resort special are the people. Take a moment of two to get to know the staff here, and I mean go beyond the "yes, please" and " thank you", and you will have an amazing experience. We did not have a butler or a fancy room but we felt we recieved such great service throughout the entire stay! We asked one of the grounds keepers to get us two coconuts to drink out of, and he went out of his way ( climbed a tree) and not only got us the coconuts but cut them open for us to drink out of. He was an outstanding employee with the most endearing demeanor. Everyone there, I just cant say enough. Ilene at Soy, Dwayne the omlet man, Tyrone at the swim up bar at Ochi, Andre at Kellys, Cherise at the front desk, Garcia, Revino ( Albert the Captain ) at the water sports center, Joel and Tashana the playmakers, were all so wonderful and this is just to mention a few. One special man we will never forget was Archaebald. He was with us for our private diner on the beach, and made every moment unforgetable. We will keep you in our hearts forever!
A very happy and very newley engaged couple
