We visited the resort for a third visit from December 29- January 10, 2014. It just keeps getting better. We are Sandals Diamond members (22 trips), have visited every Sandals resort and just started our own Travel Agency ( dreamwithustravel.com) to share our knowledge and love of Sandals! Upon arrival, the wonderful GM, Brian Roper and HM, Vishal were ready...

This was our 4th trip to a Sandals property and once again experienced a first class holiday. The Grande Riviera is actually 2 resorts, Riviera Seaside which is directly on the beach and the Great House which is on the other side of the road and is predominately Butler service villas. This is also where the main Sandals pool is...

Beware of the baggage handlers at MBJ. They will take anything of value. They turned my bag upside down looking an decided they needed my wife's watch and 2 gold pendants/neclaces more than she did. Also took a half-filled bottle of Polo cologne from me. This pretty much soured the trip and my desire to return to Jamaica. That being...
