Your booking is safe with Virgin Holidays
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!

My wife, my 8 year old son and myself stayed here from April 8th to the 15th. We absolutely loved it!! The service was fantastic, rooms always clean (fresh towels daily) and the food was great. The... Read more many highlights I could mention include an amazing beach BBQ on Tues and Thurs including tables right on the beach, fantastic kids services including Club Mongoose and a full kids bar menu at all bars and GREAT ala carte restaurants (especially the Grand Terrace where our server Hubert and all of the other staff went above and beyond). We were allowed 4 ala cartes so we got to try them all. This resort also had the friendliest front desk we have ever had. The buffet was always well stocked and always had ready tables, and there are many well staffed bars so no long waits. We celebrated our 20th anniversary during this stay and the romantic ambience was great with outdoor music and dancing nightly, piano bar and fantastic Jamaican live bands. This was an overall great stay with stunning sunsets!! I would definately return to this resort. I would also highly suggest a trip to the blue hole if you like tropical waterfalls and alot of fun!! If there was one negative about this resort (and certainly not worth staying away), they could use to put fridges in all rooms. Read less
I stayed here in October 2014 sorry for late post. Food great, especially the cooks that make the pancakes every morning!!! Such a variety of foods from breakfast to dinner. Different pools... Read more , great music, great drinks, nice staff. Rooms were good side. I stayed in North tower. Lifts are slow but they have music inside which is nice :) Don't let people out you off!!! If you want 5 star pay for it but this is perfect!!! Clean, good location. This is perfect for couples, families, groups of friends, The club Jamaican me crazy is good! So is margaritas and also visit priory beach party nearby also. Sometimes when you leave the complex you do get hassled by locals but they are harmless. I would definitely go back!!! In fact can't wait!!! Read less
I think this hotel has the best beach in the Ocho Rios/Runaway Bay area. The food is great. It has a great kids club. It also has a great teen area. The specialty restaurants are... Read more ok. Great drinks. Rooms with only a partial ocean view are good as you see the beautiful mountains as well. Great,nightly entertainment. Great spa. Overall even though a 3 star its gray for anyone, especially families and groups. Oh it has a nice water slide Read less
We went during Spring Break and it was a hoot! The grounds were AMAZING! The Staff was TERRIFIC! Even the food was pretty good! The beach area is a bit small but so close to the bar! (all that... Read more matters on a tropical vacation!) :) We got there on Sunday and by the time we got to the hotel the reservations desk for the A La Carte restaurants was closed so Monday morning was already to late and they had no reservations left! So make sure you make them as soon as you get there! I would highly recommend this resort. Location is ideal to the shopping in the town. The rooms are super adorable too. The nightly entertainment is great too! Read less
