    There is a Sandals thread
    Sandals & Couples Resorts
    and TA Jennifer specializes in Sandals resorts. She has posted a great, very comprehensive review. You might want to check the Sandals website directly and see if they have a message board to get more specific feedback--That what I did with Couples.

      Hey Lila -

      I'll send you a Pm but any questions you have regarding Sandals feel free to ask! We are also doing a Sandals BDW Bridal Faire in October- may be a good opportunity to get down there and do a site visit!

      Unfortunately, Sandals doesn't have a message board like Couples ( keep in mind the Couples board is great for info but HEAVILY moderate!) At least on BDW forum we can answer all of your Sandals/ Couples questions and tell it like it is!!

      The two resorts in Ocho Rios are quite different- SGOR is more lively but I recommend staying the the ocean side of the resort as the rooms are waaay nicer, the manor side really needs updating (although Sandals is going through all of the properties and doing refurbishment- may be complete by 2009!)

      Dunns River is more upscale and has a nicer beach. Rooms here are all quite nice. This resort is a touch more laid back!

      Thanks for the shout out Jamaica Bride!

      Ta Jennifer

        I was wondering what the SGOR Honeymoon Ocean Front room was like. Do you have any pics of the room? They only show the balcony in the pic on the sandals website.

                  Important!!! New requirements have just been released from Sandals regarding minimum age to marry on all islands.

                  Jamaica, Antigua, St. Lucia and the Bahamas will require anyone under the age of 18 wishing to marry to have a notarized letter of consent (signed by both parents). The Bahama's is still pending in this manner, but most likely will follow the lead on this ruling. It has been a lose rule up until now, but it will be enforced from here on out.

                  Turks and Caicos requires couples to be 21 in order to marry without parental consent.

                  I know this doesn't affect the vast majority of you, but it is important for those it may.

                    Here is some info if anyone has any questions about the dress codes at the restaurants

                    You'll find most of the guests in long pants (nice slacks) when eating in the restaurants. Just to clarify, when you say button up, I take that to mean a collared button up shirt (that is what is preferred as well).
                    Here is some info on the restaurants:
                    Bayside is the first restaurant off the lobby (serving international cuisine). For dinner, you can eat on the totally open terrace over looking the ocean or inside (dress code is resort casual - even dress shorts are acceptable);
                    The Oleander Room (Jamaican Cuisine) is the most dressy of the restaurants on property for dinner - it really is very charming (also serves an a la carte breakfast). Upstairs from there is Cucina Romana (with Italian Cuisine) - also resort casual (reservations are required here).
                    Tokyo Joe's (Asian) is out on the open deck (they have a really neat area that you can just relax on extra comfy couches before or after dinner). This restaurant requires reservations (dress code - resort causal).
                    The OK Corral (serving Tex Mex) is out on the Beach (you can even go barefoot to this one - if you want) - here is where you will find the guests wearing very casual wear (shorts, jeans, slacks).
                    The newest restaurant is the Cricketer's Pub - again resort casual. It's not that they would turn you down at the restaurants if you did show up in jeans, but there is a tone that is set and so that you feel most comfortable is why I suggest nice slacks and collared shirts to most of them.
                    Also, go over to Sandals Royal Caribbean and try the Royal Thai Restaurant (they take you over to the private island by a dragon boat –it’s neat - including the style of how the food is served and as the name suggests, it is Thai food). You need to make reservations for that one (and just so you know there is a complimentary shuttle that runs among all three Sandals located in Montego Bay.
