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.
I've been to a lot of all inclusive resorts in Mexico, Aruba, and Bahamas but had never stayed at a Sandals until this trip. I thought they were supposed to be the cream of the crop but boy was I wrong. Rooms were tiny and there was mold everywhere (under the lip of the sink, under the lip of the tub, in the window treatments in the bathroom, and on the bedroom curtains. I even got sick from the all the mold. They moved us once but the second room was no better. They told us there were no other rooms to move us to.The rooms were tiny and the food was hit or miss. If you go I would recommend the French and Italian restaurants. The chicken jerk was good at Mariners and Neptune and the sushi place were also good. Avoid the pizza places those were really bad and so was Southern Comfort. We went to the Southern place for lunch expecting American Southern food and were sorely disappointed as it was definitely not American southern food. It was more like a hodge podg of left overs from other restaurants. Breakfast restaurants were limited on the beach side. Overall I was not impressed with the food or the availability of food especially when compared to other all inclusive I've been to.We had upgraded to the club level and these rooms were more like the basic rooms at other all inclusive I've stayed at.There is basically no beach. The photos make it look like there are tons of beach front, but there is not.The staff is very nice though.
We left Sandals Ochi yesterday after staying there a week for our honeymoon, and I have nothing bad to say. The resort looks like something out of a movie. In fact, I caught myself saying a few different times throughout the trip, "I feel like I'm in a movie right now!". The staff treated us like they were long time friends, and the guests were just as great. Ochi is a very social resort with many people looking to make new friends and just have a great time. Jas at the Rabbit Hole took great care of us and showed us an amazing time each night we went. The Hard Drive band and Big Mama were shows we saw there and loved. Jevada showed us alot of fun at the pools and with different activities, and Patrick at the Beach Club got the good times rolling for us right from the very first day, and our last day he made sure to come find us so he could see us off when we left. If you go here, you absolutely have to book the Catamaran trip through Island Routes; that was one of our highlights of the trip. The whole crew was great and we had SO much fun. If you are looking for a fun, social resort with options to both relax or party and have fun, this is the place for you. I know we certainly will be back!
I've never had more fun on vacation in my life! 5 out of 5!! If you haven't been to Jamaica...GO! This was our honeymoon and I couldn't have asked for a better week. Every single person on this resort makes you feel like family. From the butlers and drivers to the servers and the performers, everyone remembers your face and your name. My personal favorites were Raymond the playmaker, you feel like you've known him forever and man can he dance! And our Butler Donavon, Always smiling and making us laugh...he made us feel right at home. There was honestly never a dull moment. Every restaurant has amazing food and every performance has you on your feet dancing. And the parties...wow!!!! The excursions are worth every penny. You get to see beautiful Jamaica outside of the resort. I love how sandals brings so much of Jamaican culture into their resort so you can get a feel of how Jamaica really is. I love everything about Ocho Rios and CANT wait to go back. I can go on and on about how much I love this resort so THANK YOU everyone at sandals ochi who made our honeymoon so special!! We love you!!
My husband and I took our honeymoon to Sandals Ochi Beach, and it was the best trip both of us have ever taken! First of all, if you have never done Sandals, you MUST! It is a first class experience all the way from the moment you get off the airplane to the time you reach the airport to head back home. Every single Sandals employee was extremely friendly and helpful, and definitely interested in making sure your stay was the best that it could be. The resort has two sides to it: Beachfront and Hillside, which are all butler level suites. My husband and I stayed in a beachfront room, club level, and were very pleased with our room, view, and location to a majority of the resort amenities. Most of the restaurants are on the beach side, which was convenient for eating, however, we did go to the hill side for Le Gourmand (French cuisine) and The Rabbit Hole (speakeasy bar-- make sure you go on a night that Mama is singing, she's fantastic!), and I would highly recommend both of those places!! All of the restaurants were delicious, but I strongly suggest making reservations at all of the reservation only restaurants, all are delicious!We also were greatly impressed with the entertainment crew, specifically Javada and Gerine. Our first day at the beach began with a few separate rain showers, and without hesitation, these two began games, magic tricks, and dance lessons with the guests. They continued to keep guests engaged in activities all throughout the afternoon, and then wow us with some type of talent performance in the evening. What impressed us the most is their genuine interest in learning about the guests and ensuring we all have fun. Javada made it a point to get to know us, and remembered what we told him! It was very different from many resorts where they seem to just care for the moment they are talking to you. All of the entertainers were great, but we seemed to have the most contact with Javada and Gerine, and can truly say they had a great impact on our fantastic experience! Javada even took the opportunity to have breakfast with us on our last morning there!As far as excursions, signing up for the excursions are extremely easy. There is a stand right by the rooms for you to choose your excursion, they complete all of the paperwork and tell you when and where you need to be. I highly suggest the Dunns River Falls Catamaran!!
