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.

An honest review from a low maintenance couple, the good and the bad...

JohnShellyW on Aug 02, 2021

Most of the negative reviews I suspect are from some very high maintenance people who are likely not very happy most of the time. Here is our experience in a nutshell, hope this helps someone! DOCUMENTS: Do all you are asked. Cincinnati required seeing the Jamaican travel authorization, but Jamaica wanted the paper version from the airplane. No one coming or going ever asked to see our covid test results! Better to have too much paperwork than not enough. CLUB MOBAY: Get it! You will be whisked though immigration and passport control each way, with a lounge coming and going that serves good food and drink. $160 per couple, not much compared to your whole vacation--get it and trust us on this! THE RESORT: Room a little small, but shower pressure was good, water was hot, toilet worked fine. Bed was too firm for us. We were in a honeymoon garden cottage by the amphitheater, loved the location. Next to the riviera pool and the watersports beach. Here's a tip-- if you want to be in the shade with an ocean breeze, go to the watersports beach. Workers were constantly updating and maintaining the grounds. Concierge was great. Go to their office, don't call them. Everything went smoothly, every request was met. RESTAURANTS: Valentinos, Le Gourmand, Kimonos, Reef Terrace--very good service. Neptunes, Mariner, Vista Sky--you may be waiting awhile. Good food everywhere, however. Just be patient, mon. Kimonos was awesome, highly recommend. If you like to snorkel, unless you book a boat with them, you have to purchase or bring your equipment. It costs $28 and well worth it. The views from the watersports beach are just as good as from the boat, if not better. We had a great time, just be patient at times and give folks a little break. They are all hard working, and it's amazing how you are treated when you show people some respect. Get over that you aren't royalty, and you will likely have an awesome vacation!!

Good but not great

ryan859 (Clayton, North Carolina) on Aug 02, 2021

The assortment of restaurants are great. The views are fantastic. The people are friendly. Despite these strengths, the resort is really missing out. Cockroach in bathroom, 2+ hour dinner times, staff broke into my villa twice even though I had a do not disturb sign on the door, spa massage lady rubbed my sunburnt shoulders hard even though I told her rub literally anywhere but there. It was overall a good vacation but it could have been amazing if not for these major flaws. I don’t expect to see a cockroach in the bathroom when I paid $5k for the week long vacation, ya know?
