new here! looking for resort help

Recommended Posts

Hey Dedra!


Sandals Grande is a fantastic resort because it has a bit of something for everyone!


It is actually two resorts in one- the mountain side (which used to at one time be a Botanical Garden and so it retains that lush beauty) is called the Manor section. This section is fantastic if you are looking for nooks and crannies to get some alone time, beatiful greenery and are a pool lover. The buildings are only two stories tall and most house 4-6 units that share a pool. There is also a huge main pool with a swim up bar and poolside cabanas ( So many guests would plunk their items down to claim them and then not even use them Sandals has decided to rent these out for a day! I know the ones in Antigua come with a Butler a cute little cooler to kept beverages in, that the Butler will refill as needed :) and he/she will also bring you lunch and set it up! This would be great for the day after your wedding!!! ) There are some new Villas (2-4 units per building) that are suppose to be completed in January 2008 that I can't wait to see! The Manor house rooms have just finished up their refurbishment


There are bars, excercise facilities, the nightclub,Red lane Spa and two restaurants in this section.


The Riviera section is located along the beach. This is where the majority of public facilities (bars, restaurants, ect ) are located. Plus the rooms of the Manor house and the Riviera cottages (these are currently being refurbished).


The beach is quite a bit longer than most photo's show. It stretches beyond the piers. And as you face the resort from the ocean, to the right you'll see a little bridge. Go over that to another section of the beach and another pool! There is a little strip of land that the neighbor will not sell however he was fine with Sandals building the bridge to the other section of land that Mr. Stewart owns!


The secret to booking the Grande Ocho Rios is the room category. Some of them aren't all that great-don't get me wrong, they're ok. but others are a fantastic value! Of course you really can't go wrong with the Romeo & Juliet suite!


If you have questions feel free to pM me!

About Sandal's I am sure all of them are great ! But they don't alow children so if you invited people under 18, you will ne to go the Beaches (they also belong to the Sandal's chain of resorts)
