Sandals Ochi Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Sandals Ochi Beach Resort is a huge resort set amongst beautiful gardens in a very relaxed setting. The back section of the resort is where you will find The Ciboney Villa Suites, these are very impressive with private pools, but are a bit farther from the beach. A multi-million dollar renovation in 2015 features a fresh, modern design aesthetic along with seven uniquely new Gourmet Discovery Dining options and a trendy Ochi Beach Club. Like most Sandals resorts, this one is definitely recommended for couples looking for romance and relaxation.
Nestled between the St. Ann Mountains and the Caribbean Sea, Sandals Ochi Beach Resort features three unique vacation experiences in one: the vibrant beach culture of the Caribbean Rivera, the chic Ciboney Villa Suites located in lush tropical gardens; and the heart and pulse of the resort, the Manor House with its fantasy pool all come together to create an unforgettable getaway. From championship golf and a renowned scuba program to world-class dining at 11 restaurants and private strolls along Ocho Rios' longest beach; from luxurious Butler Service suites with 24-hour room service to a full-service Red Lane� Spa and unlimited land & water sports, this exquisite sanctuary offers something to tempt every guest.
Location: Beachfront in Ocho Rios. 1 hour and 45 minutes from the airport.
My husband and I had heard from our friends who have honeymooned at Sandals how wonderful their experience was. So when we started looking into places for our honeymoon we decided to go with their reccamendation. As soon as we arrived we were treated with the highest of luxury. We enjoyed everything at Sandals from our amazing butler staff Clarista and Cordean to the fabulous entertainment staff! Clarista and Cordean made sure everything was taken care of for us so we could experience the resort to the fullest! One of our favorite things they did was the make towel animals every afternoon with an afternoon snack waiting. The entrertainent staff was so much fun and we enjoyed getting to know each of them. During the days we played fun games at the pool and beach while we sipped cocktails. It was truly Paridise! We plan on visiting Sandals Ochi again and we will be asking for Clarista and Cordean to take care of use because they are simply the best. If you are looking for good food, a good time, and amazing people Sandals Ochi is for you!
We stayed in a one bedroom suite HV1 in the all Butler village side. This was our first Sandals visit and won't be our last. We had the Butler option which was terrific, our butlers Venice & Oshane were wonderful, taking care of us all week. They made our dinner reservations, decorated our bed with flowers and towel animals, surprised us with a relaxing bath, drinks and snacks, breakfast on the veranda, golf cart transportation and arranging any tours or water sports that required pre booking. I highly recommend the service. We only tipped the butlers as per Sandals policy of no tipping except Butlers. However we saw many hidden tips being passed to different staff but we still received excellent service without tipping. The Rabbit Hole was neat and the water sports were really good. Thanks to all the staff for a very special holiday!
My wife and I were recently at Sandals Ochi for one week.First the positives: Our butlers Donard & Devin were great. They saw to it that we were well taken care of and tried to ensure we were satisfied with everything. I personally don't think I will ever do Sandals without the Butler service, having a person on the resort who is always there to take care of you and who you can call if you have an issue makes things a lot better.Just remember that you share your butlers with roughly 3 other couples so they are not going to be at your beck and call every minute of every day(and they do have lives and families and deserve time off like the rest of us too. For those of you out there complaining that your butler only worked from 8-8 my job requires me to work 12 hour shifts and I doubt that you complainers have ever had to work a shift like that for that long, sitting at a desk does not count, they need a break too.) We were placed in one of the butler villas up on the hill side, the room was decent but definitely in need of a remodel/refresh. The staff acknowledged this and said that some villas were currently in the process of being redone but weren't finished. We did not have issues with smells that others complained about. The food was good (my wife and I loved the breakfast at the Southern Table) and there were lots of activities. Also we were able to get chairs at the beach fairly easily even at 9 am though that probably was more due to us being there at an off-peak time as the resort does not really have enough beach front for the size it is. Now for the bad: While Donard and Devin were great as I said and most of the staff was pleasant it did seem like there were a few more staff with less than warm and welcoming attitudes compared to previous Sandals that my wife and I had stayed at. Not usually a big deal as the 'bad apples' were still pretty spread out among the generally great staff but it definitely was noticeable. Also one afternoon the toilet in our room became clogged. I made multiple calls to maintenance over the course of several hours with still no one showing up to fix it. I eventually was able to get the toilet mostly unclogged myself. This was a big aggravation and the one that really stands out in my mind.We enjoyed our time at Sandals Ochi, there were a few (relatively) minor issues but I don't get the reviews saying it was absolutely horrible as my wife and I had a really good vacation.
Had a great trip with friends. Went 5 years after our honeymoon and although the resort did not change, it was not as great as we had remembered, however it was still a blast. The entertainment shows at night were not great, however the playmakers were fabulous during the day with games and activities! Food was all great! Kirkpatrick was our favorite bartender. Make sure to ask him for a Jack Apple!
I was very disappointed. The food was eh, took forever and it was always cold and not cooked as per our requests. Horrible service at the bars. Very very slow. They need more help. The playmakers were amazing. I looked forward to them each day.
