IrieBride08's Review of Sandals Grande Ochi (Looonnnngg!)

Recommended Posts

Fantastic review Iriebride!

 

Jamaicabride09- She had conceriege service as that is when you get the in room bar! If your hubby to be is really picky about what Vodka I'd say to go with the butler service as you can request what brands you prefer. Sky Vodka was in the conceirge villas and Absolute was available- if you asked for it at the bars.

Thanks for the advice Jennifer! We have been going back and forth about the butler service...

At that point, my photographer arrived and started to take shots of me getting my make up done. After a break I looked in the mirror and couldnâ€t believe my eyes. She had rimmed my eyes with black liner and I looked like a frickin†raccoon! At that point, I told her that I would finish the makeup my self, packed up my make up and hightailed it out of there.

 

I totally hear you about the raccoon eyes. I had my make-up done at SGOR's spa as well and almost fell out of the chair when I saw myself for the first time! Luckily I had time before the ceremony to tone down my eyes AND lips.

My pleasure! I had heard that to have a room with Butler service added an average of 24-48 hours to your vacations time! Just all the little things that they can do for you from the seperate check in - unpacking- making reservations for activities- dinners-getting around the propery (especially at Sandals Grende Ocho Rios!) making sure eveything you wanted was in the room (beverges and so forth!), having an in room bar, and having room service! I bet at SGOR it saves a bit more time!

TA Jennifer is right. I had concierge service. In hindsight, I do wish that we had gotten the butler service. That way we would have had 24 room service and a personal shuttle service whenever we needed it! It definitely would have helped me on my wedding day! I could have had my butler retreive the wedding rings that I left and a host of other duties!

What a great review (sadly I never got around to one..lol)!!! You looked beautiful and it sounds like you had a wonderful time!. Wouldn't you do a DW 100 times over againhuh.gif I loved it and almost made me sad reading your review cause I want to do it again! BTW I was in the Rivera building and our room seemed like it had been recently updated. The room was large enough for us and the bathroom wasn't overly cramped. I loved our room. I loved waking up to the ocean view too. The first thing I did when I opened my eyes was open the blinds and look out into the beautiful blue water (well except when it was overcast the first couple of days!)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
