And personlly, SGOR was the best choice for us because most of our guests are active and will really enjoy all of the things to do, plus SGOR offered the widest range of rooms costs, so someone like my sister (who doesn't care if the only view she has is looking out onto dumpsters, just as long as it's cheap!) can have the room that fits her budget, while my parents and I reserved honeymoon penthouse concierge rooms, since that was more the more suited to what we were looking for -- something for everyone! And maybe it's not as newly renovated as some of the other Sandals resorts, and the beach isn't as large or as grand, but we decided that a smaller beach would have to be what we sacrificed for the greater good!)
GOOD LUCK no matter where you end up, and I'm sure your WeddingMoon will be beautiful, whether at Whitehouse, SGOR or one of the other Sandals resorts!

Is grande ocho rios wheelchair accessible? I know it's a lot of walking, but my TA said Sandals offers wheelchairs. But that won't really work if there's a ton of stairs?

Hope that helps everyone who is looking at SGOR but has elderly people going.

Great Posts. I've been to SGOR and having my wedding there, but totally forgot about all the walking! Thankfully we only have 2 elderly folks going..

SGOR is very large and there is a lot to do both at the resort and close by. Whitehouse in contrast, is very small and per both Sandals site and other brides reports, is more just for laying around. I don't mind laying around, but I didn't want to do that for 9 days. My guests would have gotten bored too. On another note, my aunt who has Multiple Sclerosis, and my mom and dad who both have severe knee issues were all able to get around at SGOR. Yes there were a lot of stairs, but the only place you had to use them was to get to a couple of the restaurants on the Riviera side.
