I just returned from Sandals Grande Ocho Rios All-Inclusive Couples Only Resort in Jamaica. I found this resort to be one of the best resorts for couples travelling to Jamaica who want romance, fun activities, great food, yet want to stay within a reasonable budget. The resort grounds are beautiful and add to the Caribbean ambiance that most couples are looking for in an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica.
Sandals Grande Ocho Rios All-Inclusive Resort has a variety of accommodation and dining options. All-Inclusive accommodations can start at around $2,100 for seven nights in a standard room category which would keep most couples under $3,500 with airfare from most destinations. There are other options such as beautiful concierge level villas with a shared pool which are nestled into the tropical and lush hillside in the Ciboney Villa section of the resort. These villas can sometimes be booked under great 1st night free promotions for as little as $2500 for a seven night stay. This is an incredible value which sometimes even comes with a Spa Credit. For those guests who would like their own personal butler, butler service rooms have never been more affordable, as you can sometimes even find butler level rooms at this “couples only” resort for around $3100 for seven nights! The dining options are some of the best, as you have your choice of eleven restaurants which range from Italian or Asian to the wonderful flavors of the Caribbean. Rumor has it, they plan on adding a few more dining options in the near future, including a pizzeria!
Another reason why Sandals Grande Ocho is one of the best all-inclusive resorts for couples in Jamaica is not only are the grounds nice and spread out with lots of privacy, but off resort activities are less than 30 minutes away. This allows couples to go zip lining or visit Dunn’s River Falls without taking a full day to do so. The location of Sandals Grande Ocho is perfect for those who want to enjoy a nice beach and pool, but want to swim with the dolphins or take a jeep safari trek and see the Jamaican interior full of rivers and lush jungle. A couple favorite excursions are the Catamaran Sail to Dunn’s River Falls or the tour to Mystic Mountain where you get to soar above the tree tops in a state-of-the-art chairlift, travel down the mountain on a stainless steel bobsled and zip line through the coastal forest. Sandals Grande Ocho has an island routes desk at the resort where their guests can easily book excursions.
As with other Sandals Resorts, all your meals, drinks and water sports are included in your stay. At Sandals Grande Ocho, you also have free access to their 18 hole golf course called Upton Golf Club which is only 15 minutes away (only the cocktails, caddy, cart and clubs are not included). So whether you choose to snorkel, scuba dive, sail, kayak or golf, these activities are all included in your stay. I was able to enjoy their Jamaica Day & Beach Party that the resort hosts for their guests on Friday evenings. The food and live local entertainment was fantastic! So if you are looking for a “Couples Only” All-Inclusive Resort in Jamaica where you can enjoy romance, fun activities, great food and not break the bank, Sandals Grande Ocho Rios is an incredible value.
