My husband and I were married at SGR on November 22, 2013. We had an unorthodox destination wedding. We were very lucky and fortunate to have almost 90 guests travel with us. The ages of our guests ranged from 21 to 87. We were absolutely thrilled with our experience at Sandals Grande Riviera. After researching wedding coordinators/travel agents, we decided...

My new bride and I decided to forego the traditional at home wedding. It was the best decision of our lives!! We went to Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Resort. Since we chose to do the destination wedding route, we went all out. We did the Butler service on the Villa side. Derron and Christine were most accommodating and...

This was our first visit to any Sandals resort and to Jamaica. We travelled to Cancun and Punta Cana and stayed with two Palace resorts the last two years, and this year's stay did not measure up to either (even though we weren't very impressed with the Hard Rock Punta Cana last year.)

This was our second Sandals vacation, the first one being to Sandals Whitehouse a year ago. Each has its own strengths although we had a great time at both. We did not have a butler either time (intentionally) and found that the people we spoke with who did have one were fairly unimpressed overall. When we come back we will...

My husband and I planned our first Sandals as well as our first Jamaica vacation at the Sandals Carlyle. This was done on a bit of a whim and I did no more research than skimming a few (mostly positive) reviews of the resort and marveling at the affordability. This came to bite me as I soon realized upon arrival...

I traveled to this resort with five college friends. We were an all female groups celebrating our 40th birthday year. This was my first Sandals experience, and it was great. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly, and they seemed to take tremendous pride in their work. We were especially delighted by the following: 1) Cordelia and Anastasia at the...

My husband and I traveled here for the first week of December, 2013. After booking, and reading some of the negative reviews, I was very apprehensive about this resort. We arrived early in the afternoon. The trip from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios was fine. The driver pointed out places of interest and shared a little history of the island....

Sandals portrays this resort as one of the premier properties in the Caribbean, but falls short of these expectations on many levels! Location is beautiful, but rooms and facilities are tired & dated. Beach is small & strolling on the beach is not an option Food is the worst we've experienced & certainly not the calibre of 5 star resort....

Well this is just a little bit of paradise. But if you are lucky enough to go there make sure you get either Fernando or Jazelle (and preferably both) as your butler. They are just super guys and they made our holiday very special.
