A Stunning Caribbean Retreat

Sandals provided a spectacular setting - beaches and oceanfront, along with nearby golf course. The staff was wonderful: always pleasant and helpful. The food choices at the restaurants were varied and tasty. We spent a very relaxing and restful vacation and would certainly return for another longer visit.

Best Place Ever!!!

This is said to be an 18+ resort since 18 is Jamaica's legal drinking age but my boyfriend and I didnt see anyone who was below age 21. Very mature crowd, it was only couples there. Any additional tag alongs like the third and forth man/woman out were apart of wedding parties which there seem to be a dozen of them out there durring our stay. We left May 6th and just returned last night (May 12th). All week were weddings so the resort was very busy but it cleared out by 1pm (Jamaica time, or 2pm if you want to go by USA's eastern time) and therefore didnt effect our service, traveling around the resort, or customer service which is delightful. The resort consist of the manor, the riviera, and beachfront rooms. We stayed in the JASMINE GROVE Room on the Riviera side and it was beautiful!!! If you like the elgant cherry or dark wood look you would like it very much. Electronic safes are in all rooms. You make up your own code which is great. we changed ours every day! We got to learn the names of almost all housekeepers on our floor (fourth floor) so we felt safe if we forgot a piece of jewelry & forgot to lock them aaway. All staff was helpful, housekeeping came twice a day once at about 8am when they feel everyone is out to breakfast and then lastly at 6pm. Restocking of the fridge is 12-ish which is when it gets its warmest and lots of bottle watter would be needed. I cant say any food was bad, and thats hard to say because we ate everywhere twice (6 restaraunts), and been to all the bars (7 - in total including the piano bar) multiple times as the drinks were great and unique. Each bartender had their own special drink such as "The Bob Marley" which was a frozen daiquir/slushy drink that was red at the bottom yellow in the middle and green on the top. Although its all inclusive certain restaraunts offer champange or wine by the bottle anywhere from 38 - 400 dollars extra which they will charge to your room (same rule apply for the over priced spa which I went to only because they had a mothers day special of $120. Usually its 195 or a little over 350 per couple). There is a shuttle that take you around to all three sections of the resort. Shuttle runs every ten minutes and the last run on the shuttle is 2AM so please keep a watch or your tush will be darting across that road at 2:05AM in the dark of night to get to your room hoping one of the local residences dont plow you down with their car as it gets real dark n they dont have the luxury of multiple street lights nor do some adhere to speed limits(you can tell by the big sign their govt have posted down the road ten minutes away that boasts the number of road fatalities they had in yrs 2007, 2008, and 2009) ....anywho staff began to seem like family as we learned names and faces & they treated us just the same, even got to know familair faces of the construction crew who greeted us just as warmly every morning. I would definately recomend to couples trying to have time together & spark up a little romance. I admit being away from the little one for mommy & daddy time did spark back up love all over again and it was great. Any other place will never live up to Sandals Grande!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

When booking they have rooms in the villa packaged with concierge. Depending on who you book with it may be more. Skip that option and instead take that extra money you would waste on concierge and put it towards an upgraded luxury room like we did (Jasmine grove or above) since all rooms have access to the concierge desk in the lobby and the bell boy carry your bag to your room when you arrive and from your room when you leave anyway so basically you are giving them an extra 100 - 200+ $ average per person to do what they were going to do anyway. EXTRA TIP: concierge is located in the manner lobby so take the shuttle over there and if you ask they will have the groundsman cut you a coconut from their tree and send it to your room in your fridge free of charge so you can come back from a day in the sun to cold coconut water in your fridge. Room service is free depending on if you want their pricy wine or just dinner from one of the eateries. They warm cold food for you too! And laastly they have cabs ran by the hotel to take you to the downtown maarket for about 30 to 60 US dollars depending on how long the cabby waits and walks around with you to protect you from the market hagglers. ALL beach activities that have "sandals" brand is free example: Glass bottom boat tour, parasailing, kyacking, and paddle botat is all free and fun!! Bring your laptop and wireless cards!! Calling cards are $20 for 20min. Better set up international calling on your mobile or use skype on your laptop. WIFI is 42 for 7 days or 15 for ONE day if you do a one time use. JUST SOME LAST MINUTE FYI'S TO SAVE SOME CASH & HASSLE.

You WILL enjoy your stay

Not a single complaint. We had read many bad reviews about the food and after dining at each of the restaurants at the resort, we've concluded that anyone that complains about the food must be used to spreading caviar on their toast every morning because the food was amazing. The best part was the unbelievable first-class service. Virtually every resort employee including the groundskeepers go out of their way to greet you with a smile and many will randomly walk up simply to ask how you're doing and if you're having fun or where you're from, etc. If you want to relax, you have many beach and pool locations from which to choose (even on our 6th day at the resort we found a pool we hadn't previously seen. . . if you want to be active you have many activities from which to choose (sailing, snorkeling, dolphin swimming, booze cruise, volleyball, basketball, group trivia games, etc etc etc). The resort is split into two main parts and a shuttle ride is required to get from one side to the other. . . we had concerns about this but it's no problem at all, mon. the shuttles run every 10 minutes to that's the longest you'll ever wait for one and they have multiple running at all times. and the shuttle ride itself is 3 to 5 minutes and makes 3 different stops. shuttle not a nuisance at all. if you like to have fun, there is absolutely no way you'll leave this resort unsatisfied. Yes, the beach is kind of small, but there are 3 or 4 separate small beach areas from which to choose and honestly they're all big enough.

ask your first day if reservations are needed. if not at full capacity, no reservations needed. but you may have a 30 to 60 minute wait for some restaurants. but no problem, mon. just put your name in and then grab multiple drinks at one of the numberous bars while you wait.
