It has very nice sand, no one trying to sell you crap, clear water, free snorkling and kyacks. I wish they had snorkling gear that you could borrow on your own instead of having to go wiht the group

I love big beaches so for me it is a bit small but for a day of relaxation it is just right. I don't like the shallow water and being a short beach so not much walking.

loved the resort and the people. Rooms were great, lots of food to choose from and the specialty restaurants were excellent. the two beaches were shallow and allowed you to walk out. lots of pools and chairs always available

This beach is groomed daily, always soft sane and warm seas. Beach chairs are spaced out with plenty of palm trees and palm shades as well.

The beach at the grande is the best in Ochi. However, the resort is terrible. It is in desperate need of renovation.

Great for sunbathing on the beach drinking fresh coconut milk and sitting on a float on the middle of the sea

The North Beach offered better snorkeling for the affid swimmer. Once you go between the beach and reef you can see a lot more marine animals and the swimming is cleaner

My stay at Jamaica Grande was the worst. The reservation process took forever (that should have been a sign). Many mistakes were made. The staff was very slow at responding to emails and calls. Upon arrival my Mother waited 2 hours in the Lobby while...More

Yes, they are included with the resort stay. We tipped them a $1 per person every time we took the ride. They were so appreciative of the tips.
