Hello all, and thank you in advance for any input you may have to my question...
I will be staying at Sandals Grande on Jan 8th-14th 2013.. I had booked the trip awhile back, as I found wonderful prices. I have stayed at a few Sandals Resorts in the past, but never here.
After booking the trip, I had read reviews that there was not much of a beach at this resort. Who has been here recently?
My wife likes to sit on the beach and read, and from what I had read, seems like the beach here is enclosed by a dock of some type. In the pictures I see what looks to be 3 seperate beaches, but are you allowed in the water at all the beaches or only at the dock area?
Seems a little odd to be swimming inside a wooded area to say the least.
We had stayed at Mo-Bay 2 times last year, and that had a really nice long beach which we liked. We also stayed at Dunns river when it was a Sandals, and once under the new ownership. Now the beach there is rather small, but to me was fine. Is the Sandals Grande beach anything like either one of these?
What I am concerned about is it being like Sandals Royal Caribbean, which I stayed for about 24 hours, and was so turned off by the beach that I transfered to Mo-bay.
I am not a super picky person, and have always had a nice time anywhere I stayed in Jamaica, other than the Royal Caribbean, and not that the resort itself was of poor quality, I was just not impressed with the super small beach..
Given what I said, can anyone give me some insite as to what to expect..
Oh, and I am staying in a Ocean Edge Beachfront zroyal palm room. Are they okay? We usually get upgraded, as I wanted a view of the ocean if possible. Thank you all!!
