We were at the Grand Riviera to attend a family wedding. Half the wedding guests were moved to the villa side without approval for anyone. They were relocated after complaints. The gym on the beach side is terrible. Poor and broken machines. The soap bottle to clean the machines was empty and maid service said they had no soap to...

We arrived at SGR right before 11:00 a.m. and our villa was ready for us, which was great since check-in wasn’t scheduled for a few hours later. We were greeted at the Manor House driveway by our butler team of Stanford and Joseph – Bailey’s on the rocks for me (my favorite) and a Red Stripe for my boyfriend –...

We were at Sandals Grande Riviera Ocho Rios from Nov 18-Dec 2, 2013.
