Sandals Dunns River Villagio to close July 30th

Recommended Posts

Sad news...I am so sad about the closure for Sandals Dunns River Villagio as it is a lovely resort with fantastic staff!

 

The land was actually leased (happens alot on jamaica! ) and the owner of Sandals & Beaches Resorts, Mr Stewart had wanted to full out purchase the property when the lease came up for renewal in 2010- the owners however did not want to sell and had substantially increased the lease price to 50 million US Dollars for 10 years!

 

As they could not reach an agreement Mr. Stewart is letting the property drop from the Sandals portfolio. A very sad thing as it always had high occupancy levels and was a great resort!

 

They did work out a deal where they will allow Sandals to honor reservations through July 30-if you try to book anything after that it will not allow you to.

 

They will re-accommodate at another Sandals ptoperty for those who are already booked after that date.

It does not happen often - very rarely actually! But it is one of the reasons that Mr Stewaryt prefers to outright own all of his properties and not lease the land!

 

You are very, very lucky to be able to experience it before it closes!

TA Jennifer here! I do not think that the quality will be affected at all - the Gm of the property -Mr Grant has always done an amazing job at the resort and with his employees and I cannot see that he would let the last few months be anything diferent. My clients have always had the best service-above & beyond what was expected, and a wonderful time at Sandals Dunns River Villagio, I have actually never had a complaint and it is all due to Mr. Grant being at the helm!

My parents visited the resort while they were vacationing at the other property in ocho rios. They said they loved it and were sad that next year for their return visit, they couldn't go there. I hope everyone enjoys the next few months left there!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
