No place embodies the soul of Jamaica like Ocho Rios. Wrapped in the lush beauty of rolling mountains, meandering rivers, cascading waterfalls, and a picture-perfect coastline, Ochi—as 'those in the know' call it—inspires those who seek out its adventurous spirit and chic attitude.


Overview



There are two sides to every story. This new all-inclusive resort has a hot new beach club, 11 bars - including the Caribbean's first speakeasy - and 16 totally on-trend restaurants. It's exciting and it's happening - but only when you want it to be. Because the other side of Sandals Ochi Beach Resort offers unsurpassed privacy when you want a more serene escape. A true Garden of Eden encompassing over 100 acres, this resort is so vast and lush that, no matter where you find yourself, you'll always feel as if there's plenty of space for just the two of you. All the things that make Jamaica such a uniquely spectacular destination are at the heart of Sandals Ochi. Jamaica's most dramatic luxury all-inclusive resort has truly arrived.

Everything along the Caribbean Riviera has been designed to bring the outside in, starting with the brand-new Sundowner, the chicest rooftop lounge offering full-service bar and a stylish outdoor fireplace with a bird's-eye view of the spectacular sea. Walk directly from the ocean into the casually elegant Ocean Bar, where the game is always on and the drinks are on the house.

Tucked into the rolling hillside of the St. Ann Mountains, the Riviera Villas have always been the preferred romantic escape for those who desire a more serene and private setting. Now Sandals has elevated this coveted hillside experience even further, transforming it into an All-Butler Village, an exclusive retreat boasting both private and semi-private villa pools.

Each and every room at the All-Butler Village includes a detail-savvy butler who will grant your every request, whether arranging romantic candlelight dinners on your verandah, or reserving a table for two at the hilltop restaurant created just for Butler Village guests. Within this rarefied enclave, you'll bask in the satisfying sense of entitlement you so richly deserve.

With 16 extraordinary restaurants offering tantalizing temptations, deciding on dinner just might be the most difficult part of your day. Impeccable service, mouthwatering international cuisine, and a romantic atmosphere make every dining experience feel like a vacation. With chefs known for their authenticity and dedication to detail, you'll enjoy the same extraordinary culinary experience you'd expect in the most acclaimed restaurants around the world. And accompanied by the renowned Mondavi® Wines, every meal becomes a celebration of your love at Sandals Ochi.

At sea or on land, at Sandals Ochi, you'll find your perfect level of adventure as often as you wish, because everything is included in your vacation – even unlimited scuba diving in waters renowned for being among the world's most spectacular. Swim, sail, snorkel, or just relax by the pool. Do some yoga, Pilates or get in a workout at the state-of-the-art fitness center..or hit the court for a game of tennis. You really can do it all, because it's all included. Of course, you can choose to do nothing at all. After all, it's your vacation.

Review:   Recommended for: Couples, honeymoons, weddings

Pros: This resort is very lively and lots of things going on. I priced you a Riviera Beachfront Club level room. The benefit of having club level is that you get room service included. The price without air on this room is $4165.00 Includes all food, drinks, non motorized waterspouts. This Resort has a golf course and golf is included. They do require a caddy but cost is minimal.

Cons: The only negative about this resort is that the beach is fairly small cove shaped.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   It was great! People were super friendly and plenty to do. Thinking that because our room was across the street and wasn't on the Ocean it was going to be inconvenient but ended up being great! Shuttle ran every 5-10 min and gave it that living in the jungle feel. Best of both worlds! Would go back for sure and have recommended it to friends and family.

Review:   Sandals Ochi is amazing! It is everything I expected it to be. It is all inclusive and you can drink like a fish, swim with the fish, sail or windsurf over the fish etc. There were plenty of things to do, entertainment to be had, games to play etc. The staff was exceptionally friendly as well. I cannot go on enough. The one and only minor disappointment I had was with the food. Based on the cache' of Sandal's I anticipated the food was going to be substantially better than I thought it was. Other than that I highly recommend you go check it out!

Review:   Enjoyed a company rewards trip for a 6 day stay. Lovely views, excellent dining (We liked Kelly's dockside the best.) Lots to see. Never a crowded spot as the campus has many pools and restaurants and amenities. Staff is always ready with a polite greeting, and warm wishes, which always feel genuine. Loved our time here.

Review:   My wife and I had a decent stay here last week for our honeymoon and left satisfied. The restaurants were great, food was good, service was awesome, and staff was very friendly and welcoming. But, there were some issues that came up and want to share my experience. 1) my wife is allergic to gluten and one of the meals she got some on accident in her meal (we informed the staff and they promised it would be gluten free). She ended up getting sick that night. 2) If you stay in a room close to the amphitheater and plan to go to bed before 10:30, good luck. They turn the bass up loud and it will shake your room until the show ends. 3) Don't book a candlelight dinner. Not worth the $200, and based off our experience, was not private. They put us on the beach about 100 feet from the outdoor stage and while we were eating, we had to listen to yelling and all from the show that night. 4) Rooms need to be updated, not much beach space, buffet food was honestly not much better than a golden corral, drinks were all served in plastic cups, and my wife said the $200 spa was equivalent to a $50 treatment here in the US. Overall, a decent experience, but for the price, and being known as a 5-star place, not worth it.

Review:   My wife and I got married here last June and were conned into booking a future vacation at the lobby travel agent desk. We specifically asked if we needed to push the date back that we could without penalty. Of course we were told that our rates would be locked in and we could push the trip back as many times as we needed. Fast forward a year and now my wife is pregnant so we decided that we should push the trip out a year. Of course now they tell us that it is going to be $2,500 more expensive for the same trip or we can cancel and lose our $450 down payment. We made the choice to cancel and lose the $450 over a month ago. At that time I reached out and spoke with a Manager. This took 4 phone calls and hours of time on hold. I pleaded with the manager to at least split the $450 loss with us as we have spent lots of money with Sandals (3 trips before our wedding plus we had 20 guests in our wedding party). I was told by the manager that "if you make the mistake to not read the fine print than this is your fault". It was then that I knew I needed to cut my losses and never go to a Sandals again. I told the manager to cancel our trip and we would take the $450 loss. She confirmed that had been completed. Now today I just received an email that my trip is not cancelled and they are charging me another $2,100 in two days. I called to cancel a second time and requested an email confirmation. They informed me that I would have to wait 48 hours for a confirmation email. I reminded the supervisor that in 48 hours I will be billed for the trip I had already cancelled once. I can guarantee that I will get charged the $2,100 in two days. This has without a doubt been the worst experience I have ever had. Do not be tempted! Do not go here. It is worth it to spend more and go to a more properly managed organization.
