Beaches Ocho Rios Resort & Golf Club
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This resort is amazing!! Not only exceptionally clean and well maintained but the staff goes out of their way to ensure you are looked after and happy.The food is a 8 out of 10 with a wide selection, the desserts could use some improvement. In the buffet there was a table check done everyday. Asking us how are stay was and where we ate last night and how was that..service, food quality.Rayon at the front desk was so very helpful with our check in and out. Always has a smile on his face and so sweet with our little one.The counselors at the toddler and tween camp are fantastic!! Interactive and genuinely love kids and it shows. So very many activities for the kids and the nightly shows for all ages are well planned and executed.
The drive is 2 hours, its fine and goes by quickly. It's mostly on main highwaysArrival:You're greeted by staff and check in is smooth sailing. The only thing is when you pre register you still have to go over the information you already put in. We arrived early so our room wasn't ready which is fine, we had lunch.Room: We had 2 double beds on the 3rd floor. The size of the room is great, large open and airy. The sofa bed is horrible. It is so uncomfortable the kids had to sleep with us on a full bed, not a queen no matter what anyone says, its a full. I usually love the beds at the Beaches and Sandals resorts but this one was terrible.They were suppose to make up our sofa bed but never came, the next night they came at 10:20, after that they came early and left it open the whole week. We constantley had to walk around it or into it. The bed was really bad, only one child could sleep there and they had to sleep in the middle as the sides were non existent.Bathroom: We had to beg for bathroom products and finally one night we were given a bag of shampoo, conditioner, and body soap. We never had enough towels and had to go to the front desk to get some. Food-averageStaff- there was about 2 staff members who actually tried to make your stay better, the manager who listened to my complaints and one front desk staff member who was great! He just went above and beyond. Waterpark- Amazing, the best slides but be careful you can hit your head on one. The kids staff and the water slide attendants were good as well. Beach-small, small, small lots of seaweed. Watersports staff and watersports- great, staff was amazing. Steps, when you hear people talk about a lot of steps BELIEVE them. There are so many steps its actually crazy!Beach chairs/pool chairs/waterpark chairs- You must get to these areas by 7:15 am to get a chair. The staff does nothing about this. You grab towels the night before and get up real early to get your chairs put the towels and shoes on them. DepartureThey make you leave the resort very early. We arrived at the airport, checked in and had over 1.2 hours to wait. Sadly I would not return back to this resort even though I like Beaches. There's just too many negatives with the biggest one being customer service.
Where do I start? Last week we returned from our first family vacation and it was simply amazing. We have 3 children (5, 3 and 1) and so trying to find a place that works for everyone isn't very easy! Beaches Ocho Rios had stuff to do for every member of the family...beach, pools, kids club, arcade, craft room, club, piano bar, entertainment shows, restaurants and MUCH MUCH MORE!We had a Caribbean Honeymoon Oceanview Concierge Veranda Suite with 2 double beds which worked great as my husband and I took one, put our 2 girls in the other and they brought us a crib for our little guy. We also had a sleeper sofa if wanted to use so there was plenty of room. The balcony was also great and had a beautiful view of the ocean.Food was fantastic with tons of options to choose from and they are great when it comes to food allergies (my oldest has an egg and tree nut allergy and they took great care of her)!The staff is outstanding as is their customer service. From the moment our shuttle bus pulled up it was smiles and high fives. There wasn't one staff member who didn't have a smile on their face during the week we spent there. The staff knew our kids in less than 24 hours and the kids went crazy for them...they would run for them and it was simply heartwarming to see (especially our little guy Marcus when he would see ROSHANE from the Entertainment team and TAMAYA the Tween and Teens coordinator).If you plan on going be sure to keep an eye out for our faves and once you meet them you'll understand why...Front Desk - Damien Rowe, Dannesia, Nicole, Nickesia, & ChayneBayside - Shavel, Hortense, Daniel, Vinola, Kady, Tamika, Laceyton, Jodi, Shantolee & NekeishaManagement - Brian Roper, Mike Heniz & RuthEntertainment - Roshane, Ajay, Jessica, Mia, Ashly, Alex & AshleyFrench - MiltonBar - Necorian & KemonetteVenetian - RichardTeens and Tweens - Tamaya & RushanePhotographers & Photo Shop - Brandon, Dane, Nick, Candy, Shari, Tracey & AkeenCrepes - Kimberly, Moesha, Shanique, ShikelKids Camp - Shanice, Lavene, Dayna, Shara-Kaye, Dahliana, Antonia, Naharrie, Stacy, Taeia, & JardineDining Room - JadeFront Office - Lance, Satterwaite, JesseThank you Beaches Ocho Rios for the memorable week, hope to see you all again very soon xoxo
We have just returned from this resort firstly I would like to say having been to the beaches in Turks and Caicos there is no comparison! However the staff were faultless and so dedicated we had our 17 yr old son with us and fortunately he met a lot there his age and the entertainment staff really interact with them and get them together,especially Jessica and Ajay Rochade etc....What a fab girl you are jess you can come and work for me any day 👍😊sorry I missed you but I know you were both entertaining until early hours with that great dancing you do! 😂also a mention for Nickell ! Keep up the hard work and I hope the graduation went well ! The room maids both male and female couldn't do enough for us and as I was lucky enough to have another Mother's Day whilst there, we were made to feel special a lovely touch for us moms 😊we stayed in the Greek village which was a nice location and overlooking the beach ,the best part to stay in my opinion otherwise you are at the back of the resort in the carribean rooms.We were not that impressed with the main bayside restaurant especially for breakfast for evening dinner the Italian and neptunes were a favourite and the barbecue was ok for lunch.Overall we felt it was overpriced and parts of the resort are very tired and not up to the usual standards for sandals and a disappointing beach area,and finally a very long 2 hour transfer from the airport 😫a nitemare when you've just flown 10 hours.
We stayed in the Carribean Luxury Family Sized Suite with Two double beds. The room was really nice and plenty big enough for our family of 4 when we used the sleeper sofa. We had a nice balcony on the third floor with a great view of the ocean. All of the staff were so super nice the entire week. We have zero complaints. We were there May 12-19. It is great to relax with everything included and they do not accept tips at the resort. Great family vacation!!
