I spent two days at the Sandals Grande Riviera. This resort is simply beautiful. I arrived early in the day as I was coming in from Kingston. I had a rental car and was able to travel at my leisure. I was greeted with a smile, tropical drink and a wonderfully scented damp cloth. It was amazing. What even amazed...

Overall we had a fabulous time at this resort, our butlers Kayaan & Nadia were both very attentative & couldn't do more to please us so no concerns there. After a very long flight from UK, just over 10 hours, we got aboard the shuttle bus to take us to the resort and was shocked to hear that the transfer...

On a scale of 1 to 10 our stay/honeymoon was a 10+. We stayed in one of the beautiful villas. Robert and Akeem were our butlers and they were amazing. The food, resort, service and drinks were excellent. Kerry-Anne, Alex and Michael at Kelly's Dockside were so much fun! We would go back in a heart beat. This is a...

As with all of our last two visits to this property, we enjoyed the ride from MoBay to the resort. Many people seem upset that there's a drive of 1.5 hours or so to get to the resort. But we look at the ride as a "Relax Zone" as fly-ing these days can be stressful enough. YES THEY DRIVE ON...

The resort is very large, has many restaurants and plenty of activities throughout the day to keep you occupied. We did the dunns river cruise which was a blast, and had many massages throughout our stay! We stayed on the beach side and had an ocean view room. Our first night was terrible, I think I slept about 4 hours,...

It's fine but not what you expect. The Sandals commercials and brochures make it seem cleaner and newer then it actually is. The service and food is good though. It is worth the money to get a butler. I'm so glad we paid for one. Also, the spa is amazing.

This by far was the best vacation we have ever been on, Besides the act it was February so getting out of New England in the winter was awesome (even tho the snow almost changed those plans). The drive from Montego Bay airport to the resort was just under 2 hours but the driver was friendly and pointed out places...
