In reading other descriptions of Sandals Grande Riviera I sometimes wonder if the people who react so negatively actually stayed in the same place I did. I would suggest that anyone planning to stay at a Sandals (or actually any resort) should read as much as they can to find out if the place is a fit for them. This...

This was my first time at Sandals and I must say it truly was a great experience. I did not need a butler to feel special here. I had great servers at Bay side and The Reef, thanks to Kamar and Kenroy. On the beach it was Troy at the pool and Wesley on the hobie kats and kayaks, thanks...

Amazing honeymoon. Fantastic resort. So much to do and so many places to eat! Excellent food, one of our favourite things about Sandals. Excellent staff, very friendly and helpful. Lively upbeat resort. We stayed in villa with butler and semi-private pool - excellent, although would not do again. Not needed. We love Sandals and Jamaica - we'll be back!
