My review is listed as a 4/5 because this is a Sandals and there is no such thing as a bad Sandals resort. That said, with this currently being the cheapest resort that Sandals has to offer, you definitely get what you pay for. The Negative: The layout for this resort is very poor. The butler villas, main building, and...

This was our second Sandals visit; the first and only other Sandals resort we've been to was Sandals Grande Antigua so this review will involve a lot of comparisons between the two: Arrival: It's approximately a 2 hour (free) shuttle ride from Montego Bay Airport to the resort. On the way over, our shuttle driver stopped for about 15-20 minutes...

I don't usually write review but I feel compelled as the level of service I experienced at this resort really fits the concept "above and Beyond". We usually travel all year around and Four Season and Hyatt are our brand of choice, but my brother in-law was at Sandals in Antigua last year and kept bragging about it that convinced...

My wife and went to this Sandals for our 25th wedding anniversary, Nov 9 - 16. We stayed on the Hillside with butler service. I highly advise the butler service. Our butlers Denton and Shennae were "excellent" . All of our activities and reservations were handled by them with no issues. Always polite and very friendly. Always kept the ice...

My husband and I just returned from spending Christmas week at SGR in Ocho Rios. We've stayed at several other sandals resorts previously, two of them also in Jamaica. We left for Jamaica thinking this vacation would rate slightly below our 2 favorite Sandals experiences (Negril and Whitehouse) simply because the bar had been set so high, and because at...

After a crazy year, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Sandals Grande Riviera this December. We only stayed four nights, but returned home completely pampered and ready to go. While the resort may not be as "new" as some Sandals properties (Sandals Grande Antigua, Sandals Whitehouse, Sandals St Lucia Grande for a few examples), the exceptional service...

I was on vacation with my best friend and had the most fantastic time of my life! The hospitality in this hotel was stunning.

My spouse and I chose this resort because we knew that Sandals was a trustworthy brand. We were expecting a good experience, but both of our expectations were exceeded by far. There were tons of inclusive activities to participate in and the resort ranked well above the other resorts we saw in Jamaica in beauty and cleanliness. However, the best...

We just returned from a weeks stay Dec 19-26. Staff was always professional, friendly and were gracious hosts. Our private butlers were excellent! Food was average at best with the exception of Valantino's Italian Resturant...best service, food and atmosphere. Facilities are showing their age. Poorly lit areas around the villas made it difficult to navigate steps and walkways at night....
