Overview

Hospitable staff
Some past guests were disappointed with the property's restaurants

This adults-only, all-inclusive Sandals resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, has both beachfront accommodations and digs secluded in the jungle. Situated amid the trees, the Riviera villas and Great House guest rooms feature wooden deck chairs that overlook 98 private or semi-private swimming pools. Every accommodation includes a king-sized bed, a plasma TV, Red Lane Spa toiletries and a private balcony or patio. Booking a room at this Sandals property grants you complimentary green fees at the nearby Sandals Golf & Country Club's 18-hole golf course, plus access to a Red Lane Spa. Overall, vacationers praise the property's friendly staff and highly recommend splurging for a room with butler service. However, many lamented the on-site dining venues. Although travelers have access to 16 eateries (plus five additional restaurants at nearby Sandals Royal Plantation), many said the cuisine served at most of the dining outposts was not up to par. Others caution that several property amenities are unavailable while the resort undergoes renovations.
