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.

Beautiful getaway

180yasmink on Jul 04, 2022

We visited sandals for the first time june end 2022. Such beautiful weather and excellent swrvice. So we stayed 7 nights in the hill side in butler suite. We did not know what to expect from the butler when booking as everyone has different expectations and always wanders what does a butler do. The butler books all your reservations for restsurants. And will take you from your villa to the main reception. They give you a phone and you can call him to collect you etc. Tbh all the service you get from butler is easily acievable without the butler too. You can book your own reservations and other staff will take you from here to there easily. There is no need to pay extra fpr a butler service. Even though both our butlers were really nice we would def not book a butler the next time as this is a waste of money. The food in all restaurants was very good and the french restaurant on the hill side for breakfast was really special. We had a wonderful stay there waa entertsinment on both sides and scuba diving sailing kyaking was all invlusive Would def rate this a 5 star experience and thank everyone especxially our 2 butlers ricardo and jazeen for making it fun and enjoyable. Thank you x

Not a Good Experience

stevefH5574ZG on Jul 04, 2022

So my wife and I heard about Sandals from a few of our friends who’ve been 5+ times and who say they absolutely love it.So for a few years we had this vacation planned with one of those couples on the week of our anniversaries. Unfortunately our week stay wasn’t the best. I would say about 60% of the employees we interacted with you could tell they didn’t want to be bothered and we’re absolutely miserable working there. Some were flat out rude and condescending when you asked a question. Calling room service was also painful because they always seemed to be in a bad mood. One example was when placing an order for breakfast we asked for one omelet and a couple of muffins. The gentleman on the phone stated back 1 muffin so my wife said no a couple muffins please. He had a problem with us getting a couple muffins so he wanted to know how many people were eating. This was a head scratcher for me because one omelette and a few muffins isn’t a a lot of food. Anyways since it was always uncomfortable calling room service my wife and I would play hot potato on who would call. We did receive great service from some people and it was always refreshing when we interacting with an employee who was actually friendly. Another disappointing experience was at the Redlane Spa. We paid $500 for the 90 minute Neroli Jasmine Candle Couples Massage and sadly it was not good. Not wanting to bias my wife’s view of her experience, after the massage I asked her how she liked it and her response was that it was horrible. I’ve had many massages in my life and this was by far the most expensive and easily the worst massage. I left the massage not even feeling like I got worked on. Although I requested firm pressure most of the time she spent just rubbing me not massaging. After the massage was complete it was EXTREMELY awkward. They told us okay you can go ahead and get dressed now and then just stood in the room waiting to receive a tip. No matter how bad the massage was we believe in tipping so then my wife who wasn’t dressed had to reach in the robe that was hanging on the door to get them money. After we got dressed they then gave us some champagne and tried to sell us some products. After we politely declined she asked us if we were done with the champagne. This was the champagne that I took 2 sips out of and that she just gave me less than 2 minutes ago. Realizing that since we weren’t going to spend more money they wanted us to leave we gave them back our full glasses of champagne and left. The actual property was very nice and there was a great selection of restaurants. The food was good but nothing like 5 star gourmet dining that they try to make it out to be. I’ve had comparable food on cruises. There were plenty of bars and pools scattered throughout the property. We stayed in the Butler Village so we had a private pool which was cleaned twice a day. Having the Butlers was nice and although we didn’t use them a lot they were helpful. We both got sick halfway through our stay so we quarantined to our room and it was nice being able to get dinner from the different restaurants from our Butlers. At the end of our vacation our friends shared with us that they had a similar experience as us, and figured since this was their first time at that particular resort it must unique to Ochi. They felt bad because they talked up how great Sandals was and how once you do a vacation at Sandals you’ll never want to vacation anywhere else. They agreed they would never go to this location again. Prior to our Sandals trip we also booked a trip to Beaches for later this year to bring the kids but after this experience I plan on canceling that trip. Although the customer service was subpar the property is beautiful and my wife and I did enjoy ourselves which is why we gave 2 stars instead of 1.
