Stayed at Sandals Antigua a few years ago so we were shocked when we arrived here. This resort should not be included in the sandals resort family. Don’t waste your money! Clearly they haven’t done any preventative maintenance since Covid. Paint peeling everywhere, tile cracked and falling off in all public and private places, broken door handles, cracked windows, pretty much everything is falling apart due to lack of maintenance. Food is below more like the discount all inclusives in Mexico than what you would see at a nice resort. No room service. No poolside food options. Gym equipment is easily 15 years old and rusted. You can easily get a better experience elsewhere for the same or less cost. Read less

So far my experience with Beaches Ocho Rios is absolutely terrible. I was told by the agent who was a man that booked my resort stay and my round trip flight to and from Jamaica. He misinformed me that I could skip my initial flight in Greensboro NC and still catch the flight leaving from Charlotte NC since the layover was a waiting game of like 6 hours, just to get 1.5 hours away from Burlington NC to Charlotte, but that wasn’t the case. Since I took his advise/suggestion, American Airlines canceled my entire round trip flight. After I found out by American Airline check in lady that since I missed my first flight they canceled the entire flight. When I called Beaches well at the airport to ask them to correct my issue, I stayed on the phone 5.5 hours, and was in tears because they started off telling me there’s nothing that can be done and I’d have to pay over $2k to book another flight. After literally crying to the female agent that this isn’t right, she started off telling me she can submit a request for a manager to review the interaction I had with the agent you misinformed me, and maybe they can do something to fix the issue. After crying in distress to the lady that this is not right that I should have to pay for the wrong information I receive from their employee, she finally placed me on hold and after 5 hours was able to get me and my family on another flight, then that flight was missed due to taking so long to get the issue fixed, so I had to wait longer to get the next flight. I am thankful that the issue was resolved, even though it took over 5 hours to fix and put a bunch of unnecessary stress on me. I think I have PTSD now. I would never use Beaches again. I thought I was taking a vacation from the daily stress of life, but little did I know this was going to be more stress in my life. I regret booking this trip. I’m waiting for my flight to get to Jamaica still. I will be posting the rest of my experience, to see if Beaches will make up what they have caused. Read less

My family and I went here for the weekend and I most say it was not what I expected. Upon on arrival we felt welcome and Renaldo at front desk was amazing . Very courteous and had a pleasant face . We went to the BBQ for lunch and it was ok . The staff weren’t very pleasant. Dinner at Venetian was amazing, we had a wonderful server Sheldon, who was very attentive , friendly and delivered a wonderful service (He is a Gem) . Breakfast at the buffet was ok . The hostess wasn’t very pleasant though . For lunch our Server Oneil k made us feel welcome . He interacted with us . He was Amazing . For dinner the lovely Coreen was pleasant , had a wonderful personality . Roshawn at the bay side bar seemed unbothered and wasn’t welcoming . Overall the best part about our vacation was the entertainment team and the kids camp . The way they are friendly with the kids and interactive with the adults was one of a kind . Big shout out to Jason from entertainment and the glow team from the pool party. Overall our stay was ok but for a Beaches property it was not what we expected . Read less
