Sandals Dunn’s River holds special meaning to our family because its history is the story of Jamaica’s evolution as a travel powerhouse. My father grew up on the beach in Ocho Rios and this hotel, the first of its kind when it was built in the 1950s, captured the era’s glamour and sparked his imagination. When it became available, we jumped at the chance to bring the hotel back into the Sandals fold.

Re-Imagination & Innovation In The Heart Of Ocho Rios
Sandals has always been driven by innovation and a passion to make our guests’ vacation all that it can be. Now, Sandals is elevating the all-inclusive experience in Ocho Rios by transforming a newly acquired resort, plus a prime parcel of adjacent beachfront land, into two distinct resort experiences. The expansion plans return the Dunn’s River property in Ocho Rios back to the Sandals family as Sandals Dunn’s River, while the adjacent land will be transformed into a brand-new luxury beach resort, Sandals Royal Dunn’s River.
