I'm on property everyday and love talking to the guest and answering all there questions, and we like to find out about there culture and tell them about ours.
It's a famous music avenue back in the 70's and 80's it has a lot of history and in the early 90's every weekend the avenue would be close to cars and a live band would be Performing and tourist from all over would come and enjoy, also the music artist Sean Kingston is from this avenue, so if you like excitement this place is for you.
We are right in the heart of the town so getting around is 1,2,3 almost anything you want is walking distance and if you don't want to walk there is a taxi on property or the bus park is close by for your convince.
There a nature waterfall that not many people know about and we offer tours to there, it's called the "blue hole" you got to check it out when your in ocho rios.

Interaction with Guests
I try my best to be around as much as I can, but I do run other businesses but I will make it a priority to help and assist the best I can.
My neighborhood is full of life and excitement and never a doll moment
Most things are walking distance in ocho rios and if taxi or private transport is needed it can be arranged
Just like when you go to any other hotel or public property, Jamaica is big on respect so that's all we pretty much ask, is that you just have respect for other peoples property and treat it like it was your own.
Brandon is a cool dude and create an atmosphere that has a lot of good vibes. He took me out to a local party and helped arrange transportation. Even topped it off by personally taking me to the bus station in the morning! I think this is a great place for college students to stay but also anyone because you can't beat the rooms with patio view of the ocean.
Ocean Sands is great and the ocean out your window is so good that other resorts bring snorkelers here on chartered boats.
Probably the best cheap place to stay in Ochi. With its own little beach, sundeck and private pool, this is an oasis at a very low cost.
Brandon also arranges tour if you wanna see things around Ocho Rios.
The Wifi isn't free however, but else the rest was perfect. Pictures represent the place nicely.
Brandon was an excellent host! He made sure that I enjoyed my stay. He went above & beyond which is very appreciated. I felt very much at home and would return in the future.
I'm a 50+ single male and enjoyed Ocean Sands best in Ocho Rios because I could spend evenings outside by the pool, its small beach, the open-air bar, dock, bar's roof deck, or my room's balcony! That provided a chance to meet others and to enjoy the view. Why go on vacation and stay indoors! Visit here. My favorite restaurant (Fancy's) was super close, as were many other bars restaurants, supermarkets, stores, local markets, the bus/taxi transport center - all an easy walk, like within 5 blocks. The room I had had cold air and hot water. Brandon, Priscilla, and both Danielles were all helpful and friendly - making for a wonderful stay. Thanks
Brandon was a very welcoming and helpful host making my trip to Ochi a good one! Whether you need help booking an excursion or just wanna talk and learn something, him n his staff are there for you. I loved the hotel, and what you see in the pictures is what you're going to get. You can't beat it for the price. I especially loved the ocean view... from the room balcony, the pool, the rooftop and the bar... It was likes postcard. Also, the private beach area is perfect for snorkeling or just walking around the shallow water and examining all the tropical fish... There was lots to see! As for the area, it's very near to many attractions, but it is also very residential, so you're gonna see true Jamaican culture. It is nothing like a secluded resort, but it is perfect for a real traveler who wants to see the real Jamaica. It was a little overwhelming at first, but it turned out to be the exact kind of cultural experience I wanted! I would love to stay there again!
Brandon is a perpetual host. He's always asking if you are okay. When I arrived he told me he could move me to a better room the next day w/o me asking. His staff is polite and they work hard. Airb&B asked me to talk of the neighborhood. Dear future travelers, don't be put off bc this is not the tourist area, it's amazing. Eat the food from the street vendors, go to the market. It's all good. The people of Jamaica are soft, kind and utmost polite. But again, Brandon and his staff will bend over backwards for you. Peace my friend!!
