When we were there, we only saw the Riviera side. We hung out at the beach, did some paddleboarding, ate at the Beach Bistro and the pizzeria up near the Riviera pool, saw the Ochi Pool, walked the gardens. The floatie mat (the cement pad that's anchored in the water) was awesome and it was so nice to sunbathe on it haha Music was pumpin out of Jamie's Sports Bar, and the staff was having a blast with everyone. I was not happy we had to go I wanted to stay and explore.
My wedding planner is a certified Sandals specialist and she recommended either the Reef terrace gazebo or the Overlook Treehouse (http://cdn.sandals.c...ge/slide-19.jpg) for the ceremony. We didn't see the Treehouse but it looks very pretty!
I know Grande Riviera is a little far from the airport, but it seems like it has something for everyone and no one is on top of one another unless you want to be. There's 15!! restaurants which is crazy.
Glad you guys had fun and didn't want to leave. Lol. We are staying on the Riviera side and cannot wait. I hadn't thought about the Overlook Treehouse, it looks so pretty! We may have a tough time deciding on our ceremony location. Haha
That's pretty much why we chose the Grande Riviera. We knew this would be everyone's vacation so we wanted to make sure there was something for everyone to enjoy. Our only complaint (and it's not really a complaint, lol) is that the beach is small. But I figured we'll be hanging by the pools most of the time anyway.
