How it Ranks: Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort ranks #24 out of 454 Jamaica Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: Sandals Grande Riviera in Ocho Rios has both beachfront accommodations and digs secluded in the jungle. Situated amid the trees, the Riviera Villas and Great House guest rooms feature wooden deckchairs that overlook 93 private or semi-private swimming pools. The Riviera Seaside, on the other hand, includes oceanfront property within reach of The Ochi Beach Club's swim-up bar and The Promenade, a pier of romantic gazebos and an al fresco restaurant built right on the ocean. Guest rooms, suites and cottages all include a king-size four-poster bed, a plasma TV and a private balcony. Booking a room at this Sandals property grants you access to the Sandals Golf & Country Club's 18-hole course and the guest-approved Red Lane Spa. One downside, according to recent guests, is Sandals' overwhelming size — yes, it can accommodate a whopping 15 restaurants, but you'll have to take a shuttle bus from one end of the resort to the other.
