My husband and I are seasoned travellers and have been to several countries including Cuba and Bora Bora (our favourites) our travel agent finally convinced us to go to Sandals which i felt was very expensive we could go back to Bora Bora to our over the water bungalow for the same price but we decided to try it for our 12 yr anniversary the first time travelling in 3 years. Well the 5 star luxury included did not apply to us from checkin to check out. We will not visit again

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I visited this Sandals resort for the first time in April 2018, after having vacationed at the Royal Bahamian in Nassau, Bahamas twice, and falling in love with Sandals. We had an absolute blast at Sandals Ochi, and the resort grounds were beautiful and the staff were superb. We stayed on the Riviera, or Beachside, with a stunning view of the beautiful Caribbean waters and mesmerizing sunsets, in a Butler suite for 4 days, and then on the Hillside in a Butler suite for the remaining 3 days of our trip. This resort was perfect for us, as we love being active and social. There is always something going on, with so much entertainment, even poolside. One of our favorite nights is Beach Carnival night. The restaurants and food on the resort are exquitisit, as is our experience thus far at all Sandals Resorts that we have visited. In our opinion, you can't really go wrong with Sandals! We met so very many wonderful people from everywhere, including the awesome resort staff. The very next April (2019) we made a return visit to Ochi to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We again, LOVED EVERY MINUTE of our 7 days there, and we have another trip booked. If you are looking for an exciting, fun and entertaining resort, this is the place. While there, a visit to Dunn River Falls is a must. (if you are in good shape and/or not fearful to hike)

This was our second time at Ochi and it was better than the first—even with COVID measures! We stayed in a club level poolside room. Last time we had a butler and we decided the perfect level of care for us is club level. Our room was nice and near the bottom of the hill so we were able to walk to and from the main building and the hop easily. We did have a few minor issues with our room but it was all fixed promptly. We missed the guys who restock the bar, but a simple call to the desk fixed it promptly (we would just be in the room when they needed to get in, nothing major). We did request a new ironing board cover as the original was too thin and left marks on our cloths. This, again, wasn’t a huge problem. I mostly want to point out how helpful and accommodating the desk was. The club level would call every day to check if we were happy or needed anything. Fantastic communication. Naomi booked all of our dinners on our first day and matched the evening activities with locations and times. It was perfectly done. All of the food is fantastic! You can’t go wrong with any of the restaurants. We didn’t do any excursions as we didn’t want to increase COVID exposure to us, other guests, or the locals. However, we had plenty to do each day. The playmakers were so fun. Anice, Renee, Tashina, Ajay, and Shanik were fantastic with games, music, and activities during the day and then their performances at night were outstanding. The entertainment was definitely better this time! Go to the shows! They will wow you! We loved the water sports and the tie dying-what a fun souvenir. We had a couples massage at the spa and it was fantastic. The level of service there is amazing. I highly recommend a massage on your first few days (before the sunburn happens). Finally a shout out to Hugh the Hop Driver. He drives the cleanest bus around! The Hop takes you back and forth from the hillside to the poolside all day long. We rarely had to wait. Hugh took so much pride in making sure his bus was clean after each group got off the bus. Thank you! My one issue was that not enough guests wore masks indoors. While most of Sandals is out doors and there is enough space to practice social distancing, some spaces are indoors and masks should be worn (lobbies, the Rabbit Hole, The Hop). There are signs everywhere, but no one saying anything to guests. I would just say to be mindful of the locals and keep your masks on to keep them safe! We’re still in a pandemic.

We had our wedding at Sandals ocho, it was exceptional. Kamesha Dennisur is the best. I didn't have to worry about ANYTHING. Everything was well taken care of. Excellent attention to details and exceptional professionalism. Rodroy catered the wedding. This was food for the soul. I Fuljoyed ever bite of the jerk salmon. The Resort Manager Mr Clarke, thank you for your hospitality. You have a great team.

The resort was great and the perfect way to relax after 2020. Miss Ethel's Piano Bar was great-Cragen and Panda are awesome. Kirkpatrick is a great bartender. The main pool on the hillside is where to go!
