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 Laneï¿½ 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.
3rd trip to Sandals, having previously visited Antigua. Great resort - split into 2 halves. We spent most of our time down by the beach which was, bizarrely, much quieter through the day.Kelly's Dockside was the stand out restaurant - but Soy and Kimonos were also excellent.Too embarrassed to make much use of our Butlers, but they did whatever we did ask and most importantly quickly learned to just leave us alone. Big thank you to Damoya and Javada - two of the playmakers by the beach who were very friendly and helpful every day. They worked hard to get people involved in activities without pushing too hard if you obviously weren't interested. 2 hour transfer each way from Kingston and if you are flying in from the UK - be prepared to order room service on arrival as it's likely the restaurants will have closed by the time you make it to your room.
The only complaint we have is the extreme shortage of sun loungers and the almost none existence of parasols. Unless you are willing to make the walk to the pools at 6.30am you have very little chance of finding an unreserved lounger. We did see couples laying on towels on the concrete around the pool area due to there being no available loungers. Come on Sandals you can do better than this. Apart from that our holiday was wonderful. Our butlers Julia and Patrick made our stay fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for them. The Rabbit Hole was our favourite night time venue with great music and great service from all the staff there.
We enjoyed our stay at Sandals OCHI in Ocho Rios - best vacation we have ever had! THE STAFF made this an amazing time and that includes wait staff, hotel staff, everyone. But let me give a special shout out to the PLAYMAKERS: Such great energy and we will miss our new friends like you will not believe. I know I am missing some names, but for Natalie, Damoya, Shellie, Ricardo, CHAD, Raymond, Renauldo, Patrick, Daniel, Garrett - YOU GUYS MADE OUR TRIP SPECIAL. Oh, and to JAVADA - you are awesome, my friend! I cherish our conversations and think Sandals is so fortunate to have you there. Thank you, Javada. Thank you!
My husband and I travelled to Ochi Beach resort from the 8-15th of this month and it was a fabulous trip. I will start by saying prior to travelling I read many reviews on here which made me a little nervous about our choice but man we're those reviews wrong! We are in our late thirties and have previously stayed at Riu resorts in Jamaica and Aruba. Sandals Ochi Beach is a great resort. Yes you have to take the hop to get to the beach from the hillside but it runs every 5-10 minutes and only a 2 minute drive. If you are a beach lover you can't walk for miles on the beach but you definitely can swim and hang out on the floating docks. Everyone at the resort was super friendly and went out of their way to ensure you were having a fabulous time. A few individuals I must mention are the Playmakers at the Ochi Beach club if they aren't playing volleyball with you or getting you to join in on the activities they will get you drinks from the bar and bring them to you in your lounger. Special shout out to Sailin, Damoya (Double D), Natalie, Oresha and Raheem, we had a blast hanging out with them each day. The restaurants were fabulous with lots of choices. I never had a meal that wasn't delicious. Staying on the hillside we had 2 butlers, Scott and Jermaine. Thanks to them both for accommodating our requests. Lastly the commute from the airport is a good 90+ minutes but if you have a good shuttle driver he will educate you on the historic landmarks. We had a blast and will definitely be visiting this resort again in the future.
We stayed in a villa with a semi private pool. Our butlers, Paula and Ricardo were so wonderful. The butler service is completely worth the price. They made sure our trip was perfect and surprised us with little things like a drawn bubble bath, dessert in our room and drinks delivered right to us at our pool.I would highly recommend this resort. The staff is wonderful and the accommodations are very nice.
