To preface this review, I'd like to say that this was our fourth Sandals experience (in as many years), the second in Jamaica. We have previously been to Royal Bahamian, Montego Bay, and Grande St. Lucian. We are 30 years old, very active, healthy adults who are easy going who enjoy having a good time and trying new things.

This was our first visit to Jamaica and our second to a Sandals resort. As noted by many reviewers, it is a solid 1 and 1/2 to 2 hour tedious drive from the Montego Bay airport. We chose to stay on the Manor side of the property in the Panoramic Ocean Vista Poolside 1 bedroom butler suite so upon arrival... More

This was our second stay in two years. And again the Grande Riviera did not disappoint as we had a fantastic, relaxing time! We stayed near the end of May and the weather was perfect – sunny and 31 degrees. It rained only twice, once at 10:30PM and again the next day at 2:00PM (both for about 2 hours). Don’t... More

Though we stayed at the Sandals Royal Plantation next door, we visited the Ochi Beach Club at the Grande Riviera almost every day to go diving and enjoy the restaurants and other amenities. A special thank you to Semaj, Venecia, Mouse, Clayton, and Winston for serving as great dive masters and boat captains. The dive operations were very professional and... More
