We booked the regular beach front rooms and then a couple of weeks before the trip we were offered to upgrade to a concierge room for an extra $150, this was defently worth every penny! The concierge staff was great, very helpful...they made sure we... More

Sandals has impressed us again!!! We got married at the resort 10 years ago, and decided to go back to celebrate our anniversary. They have done big renovations since 2003! The addition of restaurants, Ocho Beach Club, and updates to the rooms. We used Ruth DeMuth with TripGuy Travel as our agent. She was excellent! She helped us reinstate our... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Sandals Grand Riviera in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. We were prepared for the hour and a half bus ride from the air port to the resort. The staff at the airport was very accomodating and allowed us to take quite a few beverages per person onto the bus for the ride. We also had a... More

We have stayed here 3 time and also omce next door at the Royal Plantation (which is all butler service). The 2 resorts are very different: Grande Riveira has best of both worlds in that you have beach side and villa side. The former being more of a party place and the latter being a little quieter. No hassle really... More

Having a stocked fridge in room and alcohol was great. The food was not bad, but could use more variety at breakfast and a bit more Caribbean flavor. We... More

My friend booked and paid in full for a five day reservation at this resort. For valid reasons, which are not important to this review, he was unable to go.

Prior to visiting this resort I read many reviews. Reviews of the facilities, pools, beach, food and other subjective opinions. This review is not going to comment on the personalities of the bartenders, pool men, maids, etc. Unless you’ve gone to a resort a number of times you won’t know if the chef had a good day or bad, whether...
