The beach at the grande is the best in Ochi. However, the resort is terrible. It is in desperate need of renovation.

Great for sunbathing on the beach drinking fresh coconut milk and sitting on a float on the middle of the sea

This beach was nice and also had a few water activities to choose from. Well kept and staff is friendly.

The North Beach offered better snorkeling for the affid swimmer. Once you go between the beach and reef you can see a lot more marine animals and the swimming is cleaner

My stay at Jamaica Grande was the worst. The reservation process took forever (that should have been a sign). Many mistakes were made. The staff was very slow at responding to emails and calls. Upon arrival my Mother waited 2 hours in the Lobby while they checked my grandparents in because of a mixed up with the reservations.

The rooms were dated and I could not eat comfortably in the dinning room due to the local cats that roamed freely and birds that ate out of the plates when people left their tables. It seemed like the norm. The staff never did anything about the animals.

I ended up feeling sketchy of the overall hotel as my stay progressed. Therefore, I made sure to leave valuables locked in the safe that is provided. If you just need a place to crash this is the place otherwise, visit another hotel. Trust me!
