“Baby don’t worry about a thing, ’cause every little thing gonna be all right.” Bob Marley
We stayed at our first all-inclusive resort in Jamaica at Sandals Ochi. The best part is that there was no need for a true itinerary – ours included sunbathing, eating, and drinking. We left behind the cold winter in Kansas for the warm sun and unfortunately a little tropical rain. The resort had everything we needed and truly was a 5-star experience!
Sandals Ochi is a large couples only resort with 2 separate entities. There is the beach side and poolside. You take a transportation system called the hop between the two areas (you can’t walk it). We never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a ride back and forth.
We enjoyed trying all of the restaurants in our stay. Our favorite’s were Valentino’s, Le Gourmand, and the Jerk Shack. Every restaurant has something different to offer. There are fancier, reservations only where men have to wear closed toed shoes, to casual beachside stands where you can grab a pizza in your swimsuit.
At night there were entertainment shows and beach parties. We were sad to find out we missed the steel drums. A favorite of ours was The Rabbit Hole – a speak easy bar that has a singer known as Mama who everyone swears sounds just like Adele.
If only we could stay forever in paradise. Actual tears may have been shed saying goodbye to the island. Yah Mon.
