Sandals Ochi Beach Resort

Ocho Rios 5.0

Overview

Spanning a luxuriant stretch of the Jamaican coastline, Sandals Grande Riviera is created to enchant you with two distinctive resort experiences in one. The Seaside & Ochi Beach Club is home to babbling brooks, fragrant gardens and the chicest beach club in Ocho Rios, where cool drinks and even cooler vibe are enjoyed at stylish beach party by day, and the hottest outdoor lounge in the Caribbean at night.

Those seeking something a little more secluded will find just that in the tranquil Riviera Villas & Great House Suites. Set amidst the unforgettable beauty of the St. Ann Mountains, 93 villa pools and luxurious suites create an exclusive hideaway suited to private moments. At the foot of this mountain-side garden enclave is the plantation-style Great House, a bluff-top manor where people come to gather around the vast zero-entry pool, or in a sophisticated piano bar. Regardless of which side of the resort you choose, you'll discover gourmet global cuisine at 15 exquisite restaurants and magnificent gardens. It all serves as a welcome reminder that, wherever you find yourself at this magnificent resort, it truly is the best of Jamaica.

Fabulous

Janis A (Saint Clair Shores, Michigan) on Feb 23, 2024

I didn't really expect a whole lot, I thought it would be enjoyable but I was happily surprised. There was always something fun to do, truly excellent food, snorkeling, fishing, daily activities and evening entertainment. One stand out is all of the employees we encountered, every single one was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. A cart driver, Corrie, was exceptional where we were already surrounded by amazing people. He helped everyone when he could with a smile and friendly word. Also, the young ladies working in housekeeping were so thorough while being both pleasant and friendly. We did have a couple of issues, both with the dispatch of the jitney drivers. Without going into unnecessary detail, dispatch made us miss a dinner reservation for our twentieth anniversary. That was after trying to get it straightened out for over an hour That all being said, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sandals Ochi. Just stay in the areas you dont need transportation to get to the main parts of the resort

Not my favorite Sandals: pros & cons

tnossett (Cumming, Georgia) on Feb 23, 2024

First, let me say we have visited two other Sandals: St. Lucia and Barbados and had a great experience at both. Unfortunately, the Ochi Sandals has it’s pros and cons. We visited the Ochi Sandals because several people at the previous Sandals had recommended it. I should have heeded the negative reviews & done more research. First of all, I want to say the Jamaican people ARE THE BEST!!! We did not have a bad experience with any SERVICE. They are extremely happy, fun people to be around; very positive. The FOOD was not as good as other Sandals. Several dishes just lacked flavor. The service was your typical “island time” service except for the Italian restaurant, Valentino’s which was one of the better restaurants. The two pizzeria places had fantastic pizzas: Capricciosa was our favorite. They also had soft serve ice cream available. Sky Vista served buffet style for breakfast and lunch with nice outdoor seating. They had a good selection of hot & cold dishes. We went there for dinner as well. My husband had the Surf & Turf. He said the steak was tough but the lobster was delicious. I had the Turf & Turf and both lobsters were probably the best I’ve had in a while. The nightly ENTERTAINMENT was average. So far in our experience the best entertainment has been at Barbados. The power went out a couple of times when there was not any increment weather (not sure why) During a show at the Amphitheater the power went out. The generators came on for the property but not the Amphitheater so we left. The Rabbit Hole was one of the better entertainments. The ROOMS were okay. We stayed at the Seaside Riveria Village. The first room they gave us had an extremely musty smell which I could not tolerate so they quickly switched us to a different room a couple of doors down. My husband noticed that the room we were moved to had a newer A/C unit which might have contributed to the moldy smell in the other room which had a older A/C unit. The beds were very high off the ground for someone 5’2”. I was climbing and falling out of the bed. It creaked every time you moved and was an extremely hard mattress. They did provide a couple of different types of pillows. Also, note that the Ocean Beach Bar is right below any room if you stay in the Riveria Beachfront so the music kept us up some nights until 1:00 am. I also did not realize the PROPERTY was so large. You had to take the “Hopper” to the Hillside (Great House Village) which had the nicer & larger pool. It runs every 10 min. but depending on the time, some were full & people had to wait for the next bus which isn’t a problem unless you had reservations. I will agree there are A LOT OF STAIRS. Several people we spoke to also commented on the number of stairs. Some of the stairs are different widths (not consistent) and difficult to navigate especially at night. If you’re not aware, the resort is a 2-3 hour bus ride from the airport depending on traffic & time of day, not the 1.5 hour they tell you. We did experience the effects of a weather system north of us which caused damage to Kelly’s Dockside Restaurant (closing it until repairs could be made) & several of the cabana’s on the beach. Obviously with the huge waves & debris (floating boards from the dock & parts of the roofs) meant a red flag & no water sports were available. We were fortunate to be able to do kayaking, paddleboarding, Hoby Cats, Aqua Trikes, and snorkeling (at the Reef) prior to the bad weather. I would say the convenience and availability of the WATER SPORTS at the beach was a BIG PLUS. It was very easy, just walk down & sign up for the day & time. Some you could do immediately if they were available. Some you signed up the day before. We actually ended up having a private experience because no one else signed up the same time we did. Zeus took us out & pointed out various sea life/creatures. I will say the Beach areas were small & a limited number of chairs. Overall, all the POOLS did not have enough chairs for the number of people at the resort. This was especially frustrating when the storm came in and washed away part of the sand on the beaches so they were closed. Everyone then went to the pools but they didn’t move the chairs from the beach area to the pool area to accommodate everyone. From talking to the staff, I understand they are in the process of renovating this resort and have begun at the Great House Village. Hopefully the Riveria Beachside will look better once it has been renovated. We will continue to enjoy and visit other Sandals resorts but unfortunately we will not likely return to this one. As a additional note, we did see suggestions to sign up for Club Mobay. We did this and it was well worth it. There were massive amounts of people entering Jamaica & it was very overwhelming. It was nice to have someone take you from the plane through all the different check points. I would highly recommend Club Mobay on the way in AND on the way out. They have a very nice lounge on the way out with free food, beverages, and WiFi.
