Hello! I hope your week is going well. I'm so happy it is finally Friday, but I do have a jam packed weekend ahead of me. I think it will be just as fun as it is busy though, so that totally makes it ok. :) I'm excited to share another Sandals resort that I visited with you. Today's resort has a completely different feel than any other Sandals property, but I totally love it!
Sandals Inn, formerly known as Sandals Carlyle, is a quaint little resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. This bed & breakfast-esque resort is perfect for anyone looking for a charming, quiet, and reserved vacation, yet you can stay at Sandals Inn and play at Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Montego Bay during the day. Sandals offers complimentary shuttle service between the three resorts, so you can take advantage of the amenities of all three. I'll be sharing more on those other two properties soon, but for now more on Sandals Inn.
This resort is located in the heart of Montego Bay, just a short walk down from the "Hip Strip", an area that features shopping and popular bars and restaurants. The resort features 4 room categories, all with complimentary 24 hour room service, leaving something for everyone. Sandals Inn is across the street from a small public beach, so you can still get those ocean views, but you can also shuttle to Sandals Royal Caribbean and Sandals Montego to take enjoy their private beaches. However, even if you want to stick around the resort, there is plenty to enjoy. The resort has 3 restaurants and 2 bars, a beautiful pool and whirlpool, and a stunning courtyard area where you can hear the sounds of the ocean.
I have added a stay at this sweet little property to my bucket list, and if you are into nice & quiet, you should too! Take a look at my photos of the resort below, and if you're dying to book a stay you can view more information on my Sandals Resorts site, and you can book your own trip there. But if you would like more one-on-one care, I would love to help you personally, just contact me. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. See you back next week!
Hello again! I hope you're having a beautiful Saturday morning. I've spent the last couple of days sharing about my stay at Sandals Ochi. I've shared the resort and the beautiful rooms, and today I want to wrap things up on Ochi with the stars of the resort, the pools & beaches! This stunning resort has a LOT of property which means there are tons of pool & beach options. With over 100 pools and 3 separate beach areas, there's something to pique every mood.
You've gotten a sneak peek at the beach from the photo above, and yes the water really IS that blue, but today you'll get to see a closer look. The largest pool at the resort is in the Great House area of the resort, and showcases the famous Sandals look, with the tower above the pool. This area is close to restaurants, and offers beautiful poolside cabanas.
Isn't that stunning? Even at night there is a beautiful view of the pool from one of the Great House restaurants. Along with this pool, there are many others scattered throughout the property, including one perfectly overlooking the ocean. Hello, swimming sans the salt water!
Now that you've seen a few of the gorgeous pools, let's skip to the beach! Like I mentioned, there are 3 beach areas at Sandals Ochi. There is Ochi Beach Club, which offers a party atmosphere with games, hoppin' bars, and more right on the beach, a "lounge" beach I call it, which offers a blocked offer area of the ocean where you can float away without literally floating away, and Honeymoon Beach, which is a quieter area where some of the water sports are located as well as candlelit dinners on the beach. Between the Ochi Beach & "lounge" beach areas there are also the Sandals' boats for water sports, a promenade with fire pits & seating, perfect for catching a sunset, and local artisans selling anything from shoes to paintings to conch shells. Now be prepared for photo overload of the gorgeous water!
I like to warn people that this resort is very large, however that means there is even more to keep you entertained during your stay. Sandals Ochi is a stunning resort, and truly hope you've enjoyed this first hand account of the resort. You can view more information on my Sandals & Beaches Resorts sites, and you can book your own trip there. But if you would like more one-on-one care, please contact me. I would love to help with your dream trip! I'll see you back next week with more on Sandals & Beaches Resorts in Jamaica.
