The resort staff were excellent. They were always friendly and helpful. The resort had a lot of activities for the children to take part in. The food was very good and there was a lot of variety to choose from. Our room was dreadful. The view out our patio door was a blue wall because our room was in the corner of the resort and we were sharing our […] patio with the next room. It caused our room to be dark because the sun did not shine in. You could also hear everything and anyone that was in the hallway. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"EXCELLENT Family Vacation"
09/20/14 Beth E
Where to start? We first stayed at Beaches Ocho Rios in October 2013. We loved it so much and had such a wonderful experience we rebooked for another stay this past July (2014). We cannot say enough about the resort staff, many of whom remembered us and our daughter from our first stay. The resort is clean with just enough activities to keep everyone interested and engaged but no overwhelmed. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the dining and the water activities. Our scuba experience was also wonderful as we formed great relationships with the dive shop staff. The kids club was excellent and the folks that run it are outstanding! We cannot thank them enough for keeping our daughter entertained and above all safe. I want to be sure do a shout out and give the biggest thanks to the following people who helped us create awesome memories and provided unbelievable service and focus to us during our stay: Tashmarie (our girl!), Shavaun and Kimone in the Kids Club - you are all the greatest! What can we say? Addy says Hi and she misses you all. Raheem, Timarr, Richard and Aldane - thank you for your hard work and impeccable service. All our best to you no matter what you do in life! Juanita - wow, what an awesome person. Always happy, always singing (and we mean ALWAYS!). We miss seeing you around - you made everyday upbeat and wonderful - all our best as you work the weddings - we sure did miss you in the dining room but the wedding parties really did get a catch! Keep on singing and dancing :-) Justin in Concierge who took good care of us both times - thank you man. Karen our housekeeper - thank you as well, you kept our room completely spotless. And of course - the ever, indestructible, unfailing, always on super duper DIVE TEAM - can we get an Oh Yea! Baby-J (Janice); Prince, Rooftop and Judy - we miss you all and enjoyed morning coffee as well as learning about spearfishing (hehe) and the art of how to really eat lion fish. With that said - we cannot thank Baker (Andre) enough for one of the BEST MEALS EVER! The only way to eat Jamaican style with hands :-) - thank you all for an awesome week. "Is the water wet today?" All our best - looking forward to seeing you all real soon - Beth, Mike and Addy
Our family just spent a week at Beaches Ocho Rios creating memories that we'll never forget! My wife and I were celebrating our five year wedding anniversary and brought our daughter along for her first vacation. We were able to spend a lot of time relaxing, enjoying the beautiful weather and experiencing everything that the resort had to offer. The staff at the resort was exceptional. We stayed in a Greek ocean view concierge suite and enjoyed it tremendously. The concierge staff was top notch and extremely friendly. The staff at all of the restaurants were so friendly with our daughter and welcoming of us every day. They would give her high fives and make her smile and laugh and that would make our day. Our daughter spent some time in the kids club and had so much fun with their loving staff. They would play games, participate in arts/crafts and even went swimming. We felt very safe leaving her there with them. Everything on the resort was awesome. We loved the entertainment every evening, too. We only wish that the resort was closer to the Montego Bay Airport as the transfer was almost two hours but we're definitely returning to this resort in 2016.

The resort staff was amazing. A special thank you to Shaneque at the front desk and Devon at the bar and Suewayne in the photoshop. We could not have asked for better service. There were five families with our group and we got exactly what we were looking for--relaxation.
"Absolutely the BEST Family Vacation!"
We went through our travel agent Amy McHugh with Dream Makers Vacation Services. It was amazing. Upon arrival they told us that we were being upgraded with our room. We stayed there last year and our room was nice, no real view but we didn't spend much time in there so we didn't care. This year we had booked a basic room for 4. We waited and are lunch and then they were ready to bring us to our room. Much to our surprise they walked us down to the concierge rooms overlooking the ocean with a sliding glass door! We were stunned. I emailed Amy immediately and thanked her for her upgrades etc. We never expected this and it was great. Our family enjoyed the staff there... The entertainers, Monique, Rodney, Orville just to name a few. The bartenders Aaron and Devon at the pool swim up bar are the BEST! Everyone really goes out of their way to treat you like royalty. We rebooked with Amy McHugh she is the bomb and dream makers vacation services has a great relationship with the beaches and sandals resorts. We highly recommend this resort!!
"Excellent family vacation!!!!"

We had the most amazing time at Beaches Ocho Rios! The staff there is simply amazing. The front-desk staff is knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. The wait staff is extremely helpful and their level of service is equal to any top notch restaurant. The room attendants are professional, service driven, friendly, and helpful. And, the bartenders were friendly, efficient, and extremely patient with us....between us and the kids, we kept them hopping! The majority of our time was spent with the water sports staff. Words can't express how much we bonded with and adored this group! Thank you Yogi, Mikkael, Claude, Judi, Baby J, Frost, Rooftop, Rojan, Radj, and Orlando for making our trip UNFORGETABLE!!! It would not have been the same without you all! From check-in to check-out, we have nothing but great things to say about this facility, its staff, the activities, and the food....perfection!!
"MY AWESOME DESTINATION WEDDING AT THE NEW BEACHES OCHO RIOS"
09/02/14 Natalie H New York City, New York
I truly don't know where to begin with this review as I get teary-eyed when I think of my destination wedding at Beaches Ocho Rios. I had stayed at this property in 2007, and while I've visited many countries and resorts, going to Jamaica has always left a surreal feeling in my heart. From the moment you step off the plane, the staff that receives you at the Beaches lounge treats you like royalty. That feeling was present in 2007, and I'm happy to know that seven years later, I was able to share that feeling with my husband and family. I got married at Beaches Ocho Rios on August 23rd, 2014. What that staff did to make my day beautiful was nothing shy of a miracle. I would have never believed that my wedding would surpass my wildest dreams. Roxi (PRE-WEDDING PLANNER)- This woman is amazing. She took on my wedding even though she isn't responsible for my property, and within a year she has became like a sister. Her expertise and dedication to ensure I was knowledgeable and ready for my day shows that Sandals takes pride in their staff. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer, and when she didn't have the answer, she got it for me. ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHINGTHAT I ASKED OF HER, SHE WAS ABLE TO DO. THANK YOU ROXI Anna Kay and Sasha (WEDDING COORDINATORS)- These two woman were heaven sent. My heart begins to race when I think of how flawless my rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception dinner was.... all at the hands of these two beautiful women and their team. The quality of service I received I should have spend millions for my wedding. These women catered to my every desire from the set up, to the rehearsal dinner, to the ceremony and the events proceeding. It's very hard to NOT worry about what your wedding will turn out to be when you are in another country. But these woman are FANTASTIC at what they do. I got the pleasure of seeing them in action, orchestrating other ceremonies, and I was pleased to whispering to a bride and say " you are in the best hands". They both will forever be apart of my family because of what they did for me. I love them both from the bottom of my heart. The wait staff for the rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour and reception is my family too. They never allowed a quiet moment. …If it was encouraging my husband to dance with me. or showing the group a special Jamaican dance, they were always professional but felt like part of the family. Chanell (MAKEUP ARTIST)- SIMPLY AMAZING... I loved how she did my face so much that I gave her a $25 tip. I wasn't just how she made up my face, it was her technique. It was how she applied the makeup. It felt like I was getting a facial/massage while she applied the makeup. I've had my make up professionally done in the states countless times, but it was never applied like Chanell applied it. I've never seen my face look so flawless. She was the key to my awesome photos. My photographer- I don't remember their names but they did an awesome job. I was nervous at first, because I didn't want my pictures to look generic. But my photos were out of this world. Thank you guys so much. I have to mention some other staff that specifically catered to my wedding group... these folks left a lasting impression on us, Navadeene, Keylyn and Jermaine- prized employees.. They were great!!!! Camille- her smile can light up a room... Ms. Jamaica Andrea-she wasn't my housekeeper, but she left such a lasting impression on me every time I visited my best friend’s room (1206). A lovely woman Karlene- Simply amazing... Nothing she wouldn't do to see us all smile. Richard- always so professional and eager to address any questions. He is great at the front desk Morrese- He can come hang with my 10 year old any day. He kept us laughing and the kids loved to see him do the "Nae Nae" dance Miguel- He is officially apart of my family. My entire group adored him. He was very cool and kept the Jerk burgers coming.

The staff at Beaches Ochos Rios was THE BEST. We made such a great relationship with the staff. They even knew my daughters name when we walked in. They greeted us like family. KIRKLON did a fabulous job with taking care of my daughters dietary needs. GRACELYN &CAMILLE were so special to us with everything they did to make us feel "at home" ANDRE & MILTON & ORAL & TJE HEAD CHEF are people we will never forget. ONE LOVE a true saying
The resort is not new, and is rather small. But the hospitality of the staff and the excellent food quality are the best I've seen in many family oriented all inclusive resorts . Nice adventure activities within a 20 min drive. Would highly recommend for people with young to early teen children.
"Wonderful holiday "
09/01/14 selongirl London, England
Just returned from 10 nights at Beaches. Really impressed with the staff and the facilities especially those for the children. We travelled with a 1 year old, 6 year old and 14 year old. All had a great time. I was a bit concerned about some of the reviews about there being too many steps to the beach but it wasn't a problem at all as there is a lift! Food was great and entertainment good. My 6 year old who had no interest in Sesame Street before we went absolutely loved them by the time we left, the characters regularly walk around the resort and take part in the kids club and their evening shows were great. The kids clubs are open till 9pm which means if you're lucky you can get an adults only dinner in once and a while. We stayed in the Caribbean village and our room was fine, nothing special but good enough and close to the water park, where our kids spent most of their time. Big shout outs to Carlos from the Bayside restaurant and Faye Ann the poolside waitress who both made a real effort with our kids and were so friendly and professional. Hopefully one day we can come back!!
