Amazing vacation
Reviewed 21 hours ago

This was the most amazing vacation by far. We stayed in the Romeo & Juliet suite, very worth it! Our butlers Clarista & Michael were great! Michael went above & beyond, he was my favorite person in Jamaica! He made our vacation unforgettable with the things he did!! The rabbit hole was a blast! Letman at the southern table was great! Marlon the driver we had for dolphin cove was thee best! Huge resort, very accommodating, excellent service!! The resort is gorgeous!! Very upkept, I didn’t come across one single rude person, everyone was incredibly nice! The service everywhere we went was great!!

Major Disappointment / SANDALS OCHI
Reviewed 1 day ago

It is with great disappointment and regret to write this review. Our first trip in April 2018 was amazing! We loved it so much we booked another trip! Upon arrival on our 2nd trip our room was not ready. It went from bad to worse without being able to make our reservations for our dinners. Not getting our welcome letter to awards dinner for returning quests,Room sheets were dirty, carpets dirty. We had a toilet back up spilling feces onto our bathroom floor meanwhile staff took their sweet time to come help. No gloves, no bleach and we watched as he tracked it all over the room and down the stairs. My poor husband running up and down the stairs trying to get towels to clean it up. Don’t book a Candlelight dinner it is not romantic at Ochi. Booze cruise boats came in and that was that. We had to ask for everything! Including to come clean our room after waiting until 5 pm on several days. No turn downs 5/6 nights. If all you care about is Alcohol and getting drunk 😵 this is the place for you!

Has the Sandals Star Burst

A return visit to Ochi Beach (Grand Rivera), only to find things are not what they seem.
You pay a premium price for a reason and expect to get this back in spades but apart from our Butler Venice, there are a number of faults we have encounter so far:
- on arrival second butler not available, waited 1 hour then his colleague showed us to our room which wasn’t our room and nad to try 4 others before he found it
- the a/c in lounge was broken and never fixed although visited numerous times
- bathtub was badly stained with undetermined brown substance
- moved to villa next door after 4 days but louvre shutters & doors broken and bedroom window has a huge gap to allow thing to fly through
- today is a rainy morning so thought we would try jacuzzi, does work

Yes there are 16 restaurant combinations to try but most have something wrong:
- Kelly’s Dockside, my wife was served a prawn that hadn’t been deveined
- Neptune’s now a combination of the closed Valentino’s the lobster bisque had neither lobster or cognac flavours but a starchy goo but also food cooked and left under lights for too long
- Le Gourmond, charcuterie is the same as found at Southern Table breakfast buffet and not French (smoked chicken, ham, turkey pastrami) and mille feuilles ( thousand layers) has 1 maybe 2 at most

Hopefully we will not encounter more, as our stay is unfinished but as others have said thank goodness for Soy and the new Rabbit Hole.

Definitely book the Butler village for the best of both worlds if you want quiet mixed with a loud option however beware there are no more Butler only restaurants.

Another enjoyable Sandals trip to Jamaica
Reviewed 2 days ago

Spent 8 days here in August and really loved almost everything about it. Large resort with a beach side and a newer mountain top area across the street. Yes, this resort is cut in half by rather busy road. Friends of ours stayed close to the lobby of the beach side and said they could hear the street at night. On the plus side, there is frequent transportation back and forth. While we preferred the beach side as our base, the trip across was well worth it. The grounds and large pool on the mountain side are really spectacular. We enjoyed all our meals throughout the resort. Can't complain about any. Loved the Jerk shack and the staff there was fantastic.

Spent most of our time on the beach over near the pier. It was quieter there, and there was always a nice breeze. Our friends enjoyed the shade of the trees along the beach. Didn't love the pools on the beach side, but would have spent our time on the beach anyway. There were plenty of pools on the beach side, and we would pool hop on our way back to the room at the end of each day.

One negative is there are a lot of steps to go almost everywhere in this resort, along with the hills. If you have mobility issues, this probably isn't the resort for you. We did have leaky air conditioner that need repair a few times. I think after the third time it worked great and was finally fixed. I find it ironic that I have had some air conditioning issues at Sandals in Jamaica since the founder of Sandals made his mark (among other things) in bringing air conditioners to the island. The problem was attended to each time we called, and was eventually working great. This is one of the things that separate Sandals from other all inclusives. I have found their service superior to all other similar resorts.

Really enjoyed our stay and would consider going back--especially since this is among the cheapest of the Sandals properties, and we love Sandals.

Great resort made perfect by it's staff

Fantastic week at this resort.... felt spoilt by our butlers Damian and shanique. All their little touches were much appreciated. The rooms are a little tired but comfortable. The bed although high was heaven to sleep on. The a la carte restaurants were great... the French was my favourite. Also loved the kimono restaurant...derron and chevorio were fantastic. Very funny and the food was fab. So much sport and activities to do here too.. however my most favourite way to enjoy the night has to be the rabbit hole club. Loved it wish it was my local. This is a great top end all the inclusive with the staff giving attention to detail... really loved it
