Sandals Royal Plantation

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Sandals Royal Plantation is located in Ocho Rios, Jamaica about an hour and a half from Montego Bay Airport. It is one of my personal favorite all-inclusive resorts, anywhere.

Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Beach & Villa Resort

Overall I really enjoyed my stay at the Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Beach & Villa Resort. It is a property that I will be very specific in whom I recommend it to.

Couples Tower Isle

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

I just returned from Couples Tower Isle in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and in one word- PERFECTION! From the minute you land at the airport, and make your way to the Couples VIP Lounge, vacation begins.

Royal Plantation

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

The Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios, Jamaica is a special resort full of history. It’s tranquil, service oriented, friendly with great food. All the rooms have ocean views or at least a sliver of an ocean view. I would encourage taking out the meal plan which can be done once you arrive. One of the good things about the meal plan at the Royal Plantation is that you do not need to take out a meal plan for your entire stay at the resort. (more…)

Sandals Dunn’s River Villaggio Golf Resort & Spa

Monday, September 28th, 2009

I loved EVERYTHING about the Sandals Dunn’s River Villaggio Golf Resort & Spa, it has a very Italian romance feel in the Caribbean. I have stayed there three times, and I am ready to go back. When you turn off the main road, it’s pure paradise. The palm trees are bordering the driveway and then come the water fountains. You will be greeted by the hotel managers (more…)
