Our Opinion

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.


Overview

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.

Amazing Honeymoon

Eshaan was AMAZING! Her and the other concierge at the club level beach front building were more than I could have asked for. Eshaan knew our names after just one day and brought us snacks to our room a couple times. We were so delighted with her service! Dane and "Fluffly" were also so great! They all took the best care of us. The resort its self is so amazing. We had to really try to get over the no tipping thing because we felt like we should with the level of service we received. All of the food was 5 star. Even the snacks by the beach. Drinks were excellent. I did get one very strong long island ice tea but it was on a very busy night. I saw other reviews about inconsistent drinks but from what I can tell, they are making a huge effort to fix that. The regular bar tenders would always test to make sure it was perfection and they always were. We will definitely be using sandals again in the future! We could not be more happy with our experience. They truly made our honeymoon memorable.

Best Stay Ever

Top Notch resort! I have stayed at hotels, the nicest timeshares, and vacation homes, but have never experienced anything like my stay at Sandals. Every vacation has been nice, but this is the first time that my kids said that they didn’t want to leave. As for a parent, the all-inclusive make it convenient and hassle free and secure at all times. Even with the excursions, they had only the best staff that took care of us and made sure we were happy and enjoying our vacation.

Taken to another Level - OOOOOOOsh !

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOsh ! Waygwan ?Just returned from a fabulous 10 night stay wife Denise and two adult sons Scott & Simon on the Hillside with Butlers Denis and Nicole who are possibly the finest Butlers ever to grace Jamiaca. You two mashed it up massive respec !Both ensured our stay was as trouble free as possible and took service to another level. These diamonds are polished professional and shine out. Guys we will miss you. On the negative side need to get this out the way.This resort is really Couples only - Advertising it as Adults only is mis-leading because the resort is Adults only they do not have facility to accommodate individual beds !Very Disappointing for a 5 star resort not to offer this if you claim to be Adults only you must be able to resource the accommodation properly .So if you are Adult and do not want to sleep in the same bed do not come here. You have been warned ! One of my lads was forced to sleep in a temporary bed in the lounge. Our suite 7431 had a shared pool. Our room was at the top of the hill and had a view of the ocean. The room was on the smaller side, but was well appointed. We enjoyed 10 of the 16 restaurants that the resort had to offer. Our favorites were Kelly's Dockside they fillet steaks are to Die for. The Tapas at the Beachside had terffic choice with quick service The food was excellent at each of the restaurants. Most nights / Days speant Beachside.The watersports is well run by Richard - Blackbird and his team. Hobie cats are a plently and if you have experience you can sail alone....Hoorah for that ! Glass bottom boat snorkling are available daily free of charge.Golf at Sandals is great the course looks like its improving with appointment of new green keeper- Thanks to our caddies Everett and Ishamil you showed those put lines shame we couldn't execute them ! Service at the golf club is first class.Be aware the green fees are free - But you will have to pay for buggies $30 a pop and Use of Caddies is strictly enforced which is also about $30 A pop.The greens are slow but otherwide the course if of decent standard and I anticipate will improve over time. We also greatly enjoyed the Rabbit Hole. There was a jazz band playing the night we went, and they did not disappoint! We did get to see Mama sing, which I hear is a favorite of many guests. Our cocktail waitress was extremely sweet and genuinely seemed to enjoy her job. She definitely added to the joy of our experience. The rabbit hole also has cocktails that cannot be found in other areas of the resort such as mules and old fashions. The decor was stylish with flourishes of whimsey, and it worked perfectly! Make sure you ask your concierge or butler for the password!The hospitality of the resort staff was either over the top excellent or no existent. For the most part, I thought the majority of the staff we friendly and accommodating. For example, Our butlers Denise and Nicole ensured that we had everything we needed at every moment. He booked all of our dinner reservations for us, and was able to get us a table at Valentinos even though they were booked. He also personally came to our room to check on us to make sure we were having a great time and had everything we needed. All of the restaurant and bar staff were also extremely friendly and wanted to please. The best waiter in the resort was Ralsroy who should be called ROLLS ROYCE !He went the extra mile to ensure to our service was fantastic he worked in several of the restaurants. Anyone who can carry hot soup bowls on his head among other items is amazing big it up big up Ral ! Thanks to Denilee who works on pool entertainment beachside - Great voice - Above and beyond attentive service.....a girl on the way up - Respect and thanks.Thanks to Maria - Kelly-Ann all the staff in the Southern Restaurant and Ocean bar staff who kept the Red stripe coming you were great.Thanks to Super Shelly at the pool entertainment you and your team do a great job around the pool keeping the punters occupied with all sorts and thanks for lending me your hair for the Bob Marley impersonation...Respect ! leftovers from the previous nights' foam party. The water was also somewhat cloudy. The rest of the pools at the resort were crystal clear.Overall, we had a fantastic mash up time, and will remember our positive interactions the most. The resort has a friendly relaxed vibe than some other Sandals resorts such as Grenada La Source or Grande St. Lucia. Great location for couples - Honey mooners etc - Stacks to do - Tennis - squash - trips out - lots of pools and food choices - bar choices Well recommend this resort go there you will not be dissapointedOne love ! Thanks for the memories we will returnRich aka "Da General" Here are my ratings:Food: 5/5Activities: 5/5Accommodations: 4/5 - Get some single bed availability Staff: 4/5Bultler Service 5/5Cleanliness: 5/5Overal: 4/5

Overal Excellent Trip With Minor Hiccups

My best friend and of 28 years and I decided to come to Sandals Ochi to celebrate our 30th birthdays. Although Ochi is a couples resort, we wanted a fun, personalized atmosphere without children or the college/ spring break crowd. My husband and I have stayed at several Sandals resorts in the past, and knew that Ochi would be a solid choice for our birthday celebration. We arrived on a Thursday afternoon. We were shown to our room by our concierge, Sanjay. We chose to stay in a Honeymoon suite with a shared pool. Our room was at the top of the hill and had a view of the ocean. The room was on the smaller side, but was well appointed. We enjoyed 12 of the 16 restaurants that the resort had to offer. Our favorites were Soy, Kimonos, and Kelly's Dockside. The foot was excellent at each of the restaurants. My favorite meal was the Alfredo pasta at Kelly's. Each night before dinner we enjoyed having a glass of wine on the dock, listening to the waves and watching the sunset. We also greatly enjoyed the Rabbit Hole. There was a jazz band playing the night we went, and they did not disappoint! We didn't get to see Mama sing, which I hear is a favorite of many guests. Our cocktail waitress was extremely sweet and genuinely seemed to enjoy her job. She definitely added to the joy of our experience. The rabbit hole also has cocktails that cannot be found in other areas of the resort such as mules and old fashions. The decor was stylish with flourishes of whimsey, and it worked perfectly! Make sure you ask your concierge or butler for the password!The hospitality of the resort staff was either over the top excellent or no existent. For the most part, I thought the majority of the staff we friendly and accommodating. For example, our Concierge Sunjay ensured that we had everything we needed at every moment. He booked all of our dinner reservations for us, and was able to get us a table at Valentinos even though they were booked. He also personally came to our room to check on us to make sure we were having a great time and had everything we needed. All of the restaurant and bar staff were also extremely friendly and wanted to please. However, we did have a few experiences with staff that left something to be desired. Each morning we liked to enjoy coffee at the room. The first day we ordered coffee, but the carafe did not come with mugs. No big deal, we used the ones in the room. When the carafe was cleared, the mugs were also taken. The next morning we ordered coffee again, which also did not come with mugs. We called housekeeping, and our housekeeper brought us mugs. We wanted to walk down to the main House, so we filled up our cups and brought them with us. We left them at the Le Jardine after we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. On the final day, we ordered our daily coffee. We called housekeeping a second time because our mugs in the room were never replaced, nor did our coffee come with any. When our coffee was delivered, we asked the staff member to bring us some. Instead, our housekeeper stopped by and basically interrogated us on where our mugs from yesterday had gone. I felt like I was being accused of stealing. I didn't know that I want allowed to take the cups from the room? Sorry? She finally said she would bring some for us, but never returned. We were left with coffee but no way to enjoy it. We rented a cabana at the beach club pool one day. We were the only occupied cabana at the pool that day. Our service began exquisitely. The cabana staff were attentive with drinks and lunch. After we enjoyed lunch, we didn't see any cabana staff again for two hours. We wanted to order drinks and our massages, but couldn't find anyone. They finally returned and apologized, by saying that they were busy doing paperwork. I found this to be an odd excuse. I was disappointed in the experience. I could have understood if they were busy with other guests, but like I mentioned, we were the only ones there. We also almost did not get our included massages. I wasn't sure if we were supposed to request them, or if they were already scheduled. However, by the time I inquired, the massage therapists were booked, and barely made it to our cabana but the time we needed to leave at 5:30pm. Also, the Beach Club pool was dirty that day. It had a weird film on top that may have been the leftovers from the previous nights' foam party. The water was also somewhat cloudy. The rest of the pools at the resort were crystal clear.Overall, we had a great time, and will remember our positive interactions the most. The resort has a livelier vibe than some other Sandals resorts such as Grenada La Source or Grande St. Lucia. The semi-private pools at many of the rooms are romantic, and a fun opportunity to unwind away from the crowd I plan to return with my husband next year in November. We have invited our friends as well t join us at this lively, fun resort. Here are my ratings:Food: 5/5Activities: 4/5Accommodations: 4/5Staff: 3/5Cleanliness: 5/5Overal: 4/5

Fabulous honeymoon!!

My husband and I took a trip to Sandals Ochi this past summer for our honeymoon and had an AMAZING time!! We stayed on the hillside in the club level villas with a semi-private pool. We would definitely recommend that when visiting you book at least club level. The concierges were so incredibly kind and helpful. They truly went the extra mile to meet all of our needs and to answer any questions that we had. All of the staff was wonderful, but we especially loved our concierges. The food was good; however, we were not impressed with the desserts. Our favorite meals were breakfast at Southern Table, dinner at Kimonos, and lunch or quick meals at the pizza restaurant on the Hillside. We went on some really awesome excursions to Luminous Lagoon, Dolphin Cove, and on a shopping trip guided by one of the Concierges. We would definitely go back and would recommend it to friends. We are actually working on planning our honeymoon to another Sandals resort! It was fabulous!
