In November of 2013, after already being married for a year and a half, Matt and I finally got around to taking our honeymoon to Jamaica. We had decided to wait a little while after the wedding since we got married out of town and had already taken a week off of work for that. Neither of us had ever been to an all inclusive resort and we heard Sandals was one of the best so we set aside some of the money we got for the wedding and booked a trip. Both of us were really excited and ready for the honeymoon by the time November came - we had both been working really long hours in the months leading up to November and we needed a break. So today I'll share with you a picture diary of our trip, just in case anyone is thinking of going to Jamaica or staying at a Sandals resort. We stayed at the Sandals Grande Riviera in Ochos Rios.
There were two sides to the resort - a beach side and a pool side. We chose to stay on the beach side and we got a room overlooking the ocean. This was our room. Note the cute little swan that the maid put on our bed everytime she made it. Every room is stocked with a bar
Here are some pictures of the pool side of the resort. They had a giant pool just outside the lobby and they did activities there throughout the day.
When Matt and I were choosing between the different Sandals resorts, we looked very closely at the restaurant options at each. Both of us love to eat out. This resort had like 10 different restaurant choices including a Sushi restaurant. This was the most number of restaurants at any of the resorts and it was also the only one we saw in Jamaica that had sushi. That said, we were only semi-impressed with the food at the resort. I think we have really high standards though. Most people I've talked to who've stayed at sandals really liked the food. Here's Matt at the sushi bar. We went to this one at least 3 times during our stay.
