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.
Exceptional and Memorable vacation spot. I enjoyed the hospitality, the beautiful views and warm water. The food variety and endless drinks. The comfortable beds and beautiful grounds. I would like to highlight two areas I REALLY enjoyed the Rabbit Hole (night club), great talent there. Also, we enjoyed a tour to Bob Marley's home in Nine Mile. The drive to get there was entertaining, breathtaking views and educational. We were able to stop and eat some tasty food for lunch during the Bob Marley tour. It was requested of us to bring back school supplies for the children in the rural areas if we were to take this tour again....I would do it without hesitation. This trip was memorable. There is a shuttle which transport the vacationers to all 3 Ochi Beach resorts with little wait time....awesome!
This review is long over due. My husband and I stayed as Sandals Ochi for our anniversary/honeymoon last August. It was truly amazing. Everything from arrival to departure went smoothly. We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet room. The room is amazing and I would highly recommend the room. We had two butlers Donard and Devin and they were both great. We ate at most restaurants and had no complaints. Our dinner reservations were made in advanced for us. We had a great experience at the spa as well. The beach at this resort isn't overly large but it was plenty for us. I recommend staying on the beach side if you prefer to be closer to the beach or the hillside if you prefer things a little quieter. Overall our stay was great. All the hotel staff were polite and helpful.
We went to celebrate a few friends 40th birthdays with about 40 of us. Service was inconsistent. Some were great and fun, others didn't smile and seemed you were annoying them. The age of the rooms and resort definitely showed. Wouldn't recommend this for couples looking for serenity even though there were quiet area. Felt kind of like a carnival cruise. On the plus, great night life to party the night away and make noise. There were quiet a few other large groups such as for weddings. Multiple pools to choose from. Food was pretty good overall. Drinks did not seem top shelf included to me. No kettle one or titos vodka for example. Good breakfast and good selection of items. Also great views of the ocean from many of the restaurants. Ocean was fine. Not really crystal clear water. Free paddle board and kayaking was nice. Lots of stuff to do. Nice touch to have no tipping and they mean it. Our checkin was a little chaotic and took a while but we were happy with the room and they were very kind. Overall, I had very high expectations on overall quality of service and drinks, and while acceptable, wasn't what I was expecting given the sandals brand and advertising. I was told they are not all the same, and this was older and more entry level. Not sure if that's true or not.
This review is for the Loyalty and Travel desk. We received a call in our room inviting us to go to the Loyalty and Travel desk for the best deal on our next vacation. We went down and priced some trips. Once we were ready to book the woman told us that the "flight site" was down. She told us she could book the room but would not be able to book our future air. She assured us that all we had to do was call 1800-sandals when we got home and tell them the quoted price and they would honor it and book our flights. We were hesitant but she assured us over and over again to book. Additionally, the woman notified us that there were direct and indirect options available from EWR. Well turns out she just wanted to make a sale. I called the morning after we got home and 1800-sandals notified me that the information I was given was incorrect. They notified me that first of all there are absolutely no direct flights out of EWR and that because I did not book my flights at that time I would have to wait until 10 months before my trip (this was a risk because I would have the hotel room but have no idea how much the flight would cost me). After making a huge fuss and weeks of speaking to different people they booked my future air but we had to fly out of JFK instead of EWR for the price quoted on site from EWR. To get to JFK we either had to pay $400 roundtrip or pay to park for the week so it ended up costing more than we expected and we had extra travel time to get to that airport. The excitement and ease of booking on site was definitely destroyed after the stress of what came after. Do not book at the Loyalty and Travel desk!
We have all in all a great time at Sandals Ochi. We have been to Sandals before in St. Lucia and that trip is what got us to book again. This resort had a slightly different feel as it was much bigger with two different sides. The playmakers at Ochi were incredible, especially Sailin and Orly. They made everything a blast and were very accommodating to all of our needs. The only criticism I would offer, is the rooms are a little outdated and our air conditioner dripped water the entire time. Some of the bars were very quick to grab you a drink and others, like the swim-up pool bars were very slow and people would leave right as you can wanted to order a drink. All in all a solid 4/5 and I would recommend staying here!
