This was our first vacation post COVID and Sandals RP did not disappoint. This is an intimate all Butler property where the staff go above and beyond. A big thanks to our Butler Tamara who exceeded our expectations.
Overall, the food was very good with many options. You have full exchange privileges at Sandals Ochi, which provides over 20 dining options. Albeit, the staff at Sandals Ochi were not as friendly. Probably because it is a massive property and they don't get to know the guests as well.
The demographic at this property are professionals over the age of 40. It is not a party resort. If you are looking for excitement, this resort is not for you. If you are looking for rest and relaxation while being constantly pampered to, look no further.
The resort is situated on a cliff, which means you walk down to the beach and some of the food areas. There are no elevators in the east or main buildings. Something to consider if you have mobility requirements.
The Beach is amazing, however there are not enough umbrellas on the east beach. If you are looking for shade, you need to claim your spot early. The west beach have ample umbrellas. A big thanks to the Beach Butlers who made sure we always had a drink and snacks.
The room was clean and serviced daily by housekeeping. Like all Sandals, the property grounds were immaculate.
It is about a 2 hour transfer from the airport. For safety reasons, the driver will only stop at sanctioned rest stops. It is best to take advantage of the rest rooms before leaving the airport. The drivers are not Sandals employees, so you can tip them if appropriate.
