Ocean Sands Hotel Ocho Rios Reviews
cheap, great view but hotel needs a clean and some paint Apr 09, 2015
This place definitely needs a deep clean and some paint!!! The room was rather dismal but the view from the balcony made it bearable.
For the wifi there was a one-time 500 Jamaican dollar fee, and was only accessible in public areas.
There is a bar and restaurant, but both had limited menus. The bar only sold beer and spirits, none of the bartenders could make any type of cocktail. The restaurant served breakfast and lunch/dinner. Their Jamaican breakfast was the best meal they had there. It consisted of saltfish and ackee, johnny cakes and grilled plantain. Their lunch/supper menu had three types of burgers (chicken, fish and beef) and red snapper on it.
The hotel has a pool. It's small but it's your best option, as the beach is even smaller. There is also a small dock by the restaurant that you could use for swimming, if you can get in and out of the water with no ladder.
The hotel manager, Brandon, is the second best thing at this place (the first being the view). He is super helpful and will do most anything to make your experience at the Ocean Sands/Ocho Rios the best possible!!!
I would only recommend this place to people I know who could handle filthy, rundown rooms (with no hot water). There is no luxury to be had at this place!!
It's cheap, filthy, but has an amazing view and Brandon to show you the best of Ochi/help you out. Take it as you may.
