We were at Sandals Grande Riviera Ocho Rios from Nov 18-Dec 2, 2013. We were blown away by the quality of service and friendly staff, from the gardeners to the kitchen staff, wait staff, housekeeping, admin staff - you name it. While the property is definitely beautiful, the people make this resort. This is our 4th time staying at a...

My first visit to this resort and it was great! The grounds are beautiful and well cared for. We stayed in a Villa which after the first day we walked to the main lobby as it was not that far. We had 2 butlers, Damian and Oshane which always checked on us. They made all of our reservations for dinner....

We recently spent the first week in December of 2013 at Sandals Grande Riviera and had the best time. The resort was awesome, the service was excellent, and the people are always so happy and speak to you which is nothing like at home.

Great resort. Our room was ocean view on the beach forth floor. The best part of this trip was having our balcony doors open at night sleeping with the sounds of the ocean. There are no bugs.

Only 6 months after our first visit, we had to go back. I realize we all have different expectations in what we want out of a vacation.

Before booking our vacation I read tons of reviews and have come to learn that the bad ones are usually from those with expectations that just cannot be exceeded. We are in our mid-30s and were at SGR from November 29th to December 6th. The resort is about 2 hours from the airport, and it is divided in 2 sections-...
