The Sandals Grande Riviera Seaside and Ochi Beach Club

Sandals Grande Riviera Ochi Beach Club

This part of the resort has a promenade that stretches over the ocean that you can take a stroll on and view the sights from a different perspective than the beach can allow you. The promenade contains a 2-story gazebo, cabana spa treatments, and outdoor dining.
