travel from beaches ocho rios to Sandals

Hi there, staying at Beaches for 8 nights while we do a re-tie-the-knot ceremony. We have family with kids coming or we would have just gone to Sandals... But we want to visit Sandals and need to know how to get there and how much it is. Can we just walk out of the resort and catch a cab?

Thanks

I would ask the concierge as the Beaches is actually in Boscobel which is a little bit of a trip - maybe 20 minutes, so asking for a taxi at your hotel will cost a little more but will ensure you have a seamless experience.

When you say "visit" Sandals... there are no exchange privileges. I assume you have made arrangements for a visitors day pass which will cost $$$? You might get a tour if you make arrangements through your concierge desk, but that won't allow you to "hang out".

Wait, no exchange privileges at Sandals? That sucks....

Correct. No exchange privileges. Unless it has changed, Sandals can go to Beaches but Beaches can’t go to Sandals. You’d have to get a day pass.

HMMMMM, the website says "exchange privileges" under , "what's included" , I guess that means with the other Beaches resort in Negril and not the Sandals resorts? It is not clear on the website.

"we want to visit Sandals and need to know how to get there and how much it is"

I am not clear on which Sandals you wish to visit. Is it: one in Ocho Rios?, or one in Montego Bay?, or one in Negril?, or one on the south coast?

"Can we just walk out of the resort and catch a cab?"

Yes.

can you share the link of the webpage that you found the exchange privileges? I can't find it with a quick search...
