We think this first shot is the FL Keys, and 2nd is over Cuba. 3. Over Montego Bay, almost ready to land 4. Our room (Ocean Edge Honeymoon Penthouse Beachfront Concierge) was located on the top level of the Riviera 5. That's me, immediately upon arrival. Too tired to even change clothes, we enjoyed the beautiful views from our balcony, the complementary snacks and the chilled bottle of Pinot Grigio from the refrigerator. We even had a gorgeous rainbow to greet us! The photos below were all taken from our balcony.
Sandals sent us many e-mail reminders of our anniversary. Since they were the only people (yes, really) who remembered the date, I got a big smile out of each reminder they sent. Upon our arrival, they went out of their way announcing the event at the returning guest dinner, and leaving us some wonderful surprises when we later returned to your room.
Sandals Grand Ocho Rios is huge, but we did what we always do at at any all-inclusive resort, no matter the size. We find the pool that is closest to Watersports and make it our "home base." Wally really likes Watersports. II think this is a guy thing, similar to the comfort men sense when they have a remote in their hand. They are not really wanting to watch TV at that particular moment, but they need immediate access to it when they do. "Our" pool had a swim-up bar with several areas for sun or shade...and of course, Watersports and the ocean directly below.
#1 above is the pool near Watersports. The others are from our balcony view.
The first panorama is from the Concierge Balcony, 5th floor. #2 pano was taken from our balcony
