Overall review of Sandals Ochi

Glamourous, expansive, and always trending for the right reasons, Sandals Ochi in Jamaica is the largest Sandals resort in the Caribbean. This is the ideal resort for couples who want to take the Sandals experience to the next level in a space that is as grand as it is all embracing. You’ll find the most dining options here, and an always lively pool that is loved by guests. The Sandals Ochi experience is often described as an amazing one in post vacation reviews by guests, and in that regard, of over 10,000 recent reviews, 84% (!) voted their stay as ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very good’.

Three things guests love about Sandals Ochi

Based on real customer reviews.

You’ll enjoy a scenic ride from the airport to Sandals Ochi, where you’ll finally be able to bring that dream Caribbean vacation to life. With nothing to worry about at the resort other than having the time of your life, here are three of the things you should not miss out on during your Sandals Ochi vacation.

1. Guests love the amazing dining options

Sandals Ochi is ahead of the pack when it comes to ensuring guests have lots of options for dining. The resort features 16 restaurants, which are all loved by guests. You’ll have to plan carefully to ensure you make time to try them all out, but some of the favorites that you can start off with are the Reef Terrace where you’ll find an amazing view to complement the extensive menu options, The Manor House for authentic Caribbean dishes, and Southern Table, which is known for its tasty comfort food and home-grown ingredients.

Insider tip: The most popular restaurants at Sandals Ochi require a reservation. Make sure to make some dinner reservations on arrival, especially during peak season! For dress-codes and opening times, see: restaurants at Sandals Ochi.

2. Guests love to socialize at the Manor Pool

There are 105 swimming pools at Sandals Ochi, and of that hard to believe number, the Manor Pool is a guest favorite. It is split with three different levels, and its design incorporates a firepit, and submerged sun loungers. The Manor Pool is great for a good time hanging out and meeting new people. Be sure to check out the swim up bar.

3. Guests love the entertainment at the Rabbit Hole

It’ll be hard to get your fill of this resort, but while you’re there be sure to take advantage of the Rabbit Hole. You won’t have to jump down any actual rabbit holes for this one, but you will be blown away by the entertainment, especially Mama, the super talented resident singer at this speakeasy bar.

The Over-the-Water Serenity Wedding Chapel with a glass floor aisle, the Rivera Villas with private pools and the nearby Sandals Golf and Country Club trail not too far behind on the list of things guests love most about Sandals Ochi, and undoubtedly you’ll be able to add your own after your vacation at the resort guests just can’t seem to get enough of!

Popular tours and excursion at Sandals Ochi

Dunn’s River Catamaran Cruise.

Dunn's River Falls Jamaica

All aboard the Red Locks Island Routes Catamaran for drinks, music, dancing and of course our secret-ingredient signature cocktail! As a highlight, experience the majesty of Dunn's River Falls, one of Jamaica's most magnificent natural treasures. Led by expert guides, you'll join hands to form a human chain, as you wind your way up the rocky slopes of this 600-foot waterfall! Pose for snapshots amid the luxuriant foliage that lines the sides of the ascending falls. Cascading down from its untainted source high in the mountains, you'll delight in the refreshing, pure water as it caresses your skin. Give in to the unbelievable beauty of this wondrous place!

Insider tip: Sandals Ochi repeat guests often recommend to spend at least one (half) day outside of the resort to explore the island. Make sure to book tours and excursions before arrival to ensure availability.

MINI-Routes from Ocho Rios to Portland.

Buckle up and take the wheel of your own MINI Cooper during this first-of-its-kind tour that will take you from Ocho Rios to Portland the birthplace of Jamaican tourism, where you'll get to See, Touch, Taste and Drive your own island experience! Follow behind an experienced guide in your own MINI Cooper for the day and make stops at numerous sites and local hotspots that will take your breath away.

First, cruise through a countryside town to a plantation that is steeped in history and dates back to the 1700's. Once you arrive, you'll see and learn about various fruit trees and herbs before sampling fresh juices and fruits straight from the tree to your plate.

Next, discover the beach that inspired the famous James Bond series, James Bond Beach; here you can take a dip in the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea, purchase a fresh coconut and go craft shopping for souvenirs.

Afterwards, drive back in time to a local Maroon village where you'll experience the life of a Maroon by joining in on some singing and drumming with the locals before being served a delicious lunch. Then jump back in your MINI and prepare to be blown away by one of the most beautiful views of Jamaica's north coast at Firefly, the former residence of Henry Morgan and later Noel Coward. It's time to take your island experience into your own hands, but get ready.

Best of Ocho Rios.

Get ready to enjoy the best adventures that Ocho Rios has to offer during this all in one experience!

Start your day at the world-famous Blue Hole, nestled in the lush Jamaican rainforest. Climb along the many cascades or use the rope swing to jump into the natural, crystalline swimming pools.

Next, gear up to soar through the jungle canopy of the beautiful White River Valley on zip lines that range from 150 to 520 feet in length. Afterwards, you'll get geared up for a river tubing ride down the pristine White River where you'll conquer the many rapids and take in the soothing sounds of your surroundings.

Finally, it’s time to take a ride on the wild side in a powerful two-seater Dune Buggy as you discover the untouched hills and plains of Jamaica. After all of this fun and adrenaline, it's time to relax and satisfy your appetite with an authentic Jamaican Jerk lunch served with a drink from the Caribbean bar. Browse the gift shop for souvenirs and keepsakes before heading back to brag all about it!
