What's to Love

Cool free perks like the in-room mini bar and free Wi-Fi in the resort's lobby make Riu Ocho Rio's all-inclusive packages stand out from the rest.

 

What We'd Change

Book early if you want to eat at a restaurant that needs reservations, or face a long wait. (But hey, that's a sure sign of good food!)

 

Why You Should Go

The natural setting is amazing. We loved being so close to the rainforest and waterfalls. Plus, the beach make this resort a tropical paradise.

Hotel Description

Riu Ocho Rios Resort: Tropical Beach Oasis

The lush greenery surrounding Riu Ocho Rios creates a tropical oasis for this beachfront resort. You'll enjoy views of the gorgeous blue seas, white sands and tree covered hills in the distance.

Amidst its tropical locale, Riu Ocho Rios definitely stands out with its purple exterior. But there are other colorful features here. The two large pools have swim-up bars - which means you can have pina coladas all day without ever getting off your float. If you do want to cut loose, Riu Ocho Rios' friendly staff leads playful contests and activities to amp up the fun. If the call of the wild beckons you to explore the ocean, you can prep for adventure with a free introductory scuba lesson in the resort's pool. Regardless of whether you're relaxing or raring to go, you'll enjoy the background sounds of waterfalls in the distance.

While groups and couples kick it up at Riu Ocho's larger pools, families and kids can splash around in the children's pool. The staff also puts on daily entertainment programs for the little ones too. Even better, the resort's private beach has calm and shallow water, so parents with small children have peace of mind.

Jamaica's laid-back vibe resonates throughout the resort's eight restaurants too. At breakfast, have your fill at the St. Ann buffet. Later, enjoy a casual, poolside lunch at the Plantation. Be sure make dinner reservations at Mammee Bay, the beachfront grill.

Even with jerk chicken and tropical drinks, your Jamaican vacation isn't complete without some Reggae. That's why the resort's nightly entertainment usually kicks off with chill beats, steel drums and smooth sounds. Once the band has warmed up the crowd, get ready to laugh during audience participation games. Then the real entertainment starts. With elaborate costumes and peppy numbers, it's as if these themed shows and off-Broadway acts stepped right off a high-end cruise ship. After the show, the fun doesn't stop - it just moves on to Pacha, the all-night disco.
