My wife and I stayed on the butler side from April 10-15th 2014 and we had two of the best Butlers, Michelle and Calicia. When I return to this resort I would request to have both of them again. Michelle and Calicia were perfect in every way. They made reservations, surprised us with lunch by the pool they were very...

We went to SGR for our honeymoon from 4/8/2014 to 4/13/2014 and the resort was great. Upon arrival, the fridge in our room was not restocked and our room was not set up with the special honeymooner touches that were expected. However, the staff quickly went into overdrive to make sure everything was resolved and continued to impress throughout our...

Butlers- My Butlers Orin and Gay Ann were the best butlers I have ever had in my travels. Donavan at manor pools is a true profession. He should be promoted to Butler's trainer. He is that good. Safety- The manor pool is totally unsafe and trip and slip hazard when wet or rainy. A safety profession should assess this site....

This was our 2nd time back to this property and it didn't disappoint. Last February we stayed in an Emerald Premium room on the Riviera side, and this year, splurged on a Butler Service villa w/ a semi-private pool. We were so happy to be on the hill-side since we spent so much time on the Riviera side last year....

We stayed in a Butler Villa during January for our honeymoon. We fell in love with the resort and with Jamaica. It was everything we could have asked for. The resort is breathtaking, the food delicious, and everyone exceeded our expectations. We loved the Reggae concert, the talent show. The beach party was a blast and the Chocolate party was...

We stayed in a butler villa during April 2014. We absolutely loved it. We weren't sure about having a butler, and frankly, we thought it would be creepy. They were great though. They weren't intrusive, and it was really nice having someone to make all your reservations. There are 14 restaurants on the property, and I don't think we had...

We have stayed at several Sandals resorts, and this was definitely our least favorite. There are much better Sandals choices as well as Ocho Rios choices. In fact, when we return to Ocho Rios in November we are going to stay at the Couples San Souci which is located nearby. We have stayed there before and our room, the amenities,...

My husband and I stayed at SGR for our 5 year wedding anniversary from 04/17/14 to 04/24/14. We were absolutely blown away by this resort!

This was our first visit to Jamaica; first all-inclusive holiday; and first Sandals experience and we were delighted in all respects.

Those who write negative things about this place are being WAY too picky. Some people always find a bad thing to say.
