Virgin Holidays View
Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort & Spa is a firm favourite with Virgin Holidays and it’s not hard to see why! A complete all-inclusive resort, it occupies a prime location on the longest beach in Ocho Rios and offers a wide range of lavish amenities in an atmosphere that combines grandeur with excitement. There are 5 swimming pools to tempt you, featuring plunge pools, swim-up bars and a swaying rope bridge, as well as Jamaica's only Lighthouse Waterslide. There is also a mini version of Dunn’s River Falls, cascading down from the open-air lobby into the complex below. When it comes to dining you can choose from Italian, Chinese, traditional Jamaican and other International favourites. There are also 2 beach grills, 1 of which serves until 1.00am – perfect for night owls who’ve been hitting the dance floor at the on-site ‘Jamaica’N Me Crazy’ nightclub! For sports enthusiasts, there are non-motorised water sports and tennis on 2 championship courts. Alternatively, pamper yourself with a massage or beauty treatment at the state-of-the-art Aqua Azul Spa.
A real Caribbean gem, we can’t recommend this resort highly enough!
