Never Again

We chose RIO Ocho Riu hastily. The bus ride from the airport to the resort (and back) was ridiculously long - over 2 hours each way. The place looked pleasant enough as we arrived, however our experiences there would ensure that we would not stay at this resort ever again. WATER - as in drinking water, it must be very valuable to them because we had to ask the front desk several times a day, several times during the week to provide bottled water to our room. Bottled water is something any hotel would provide -readily - to the room and replenish regularly. Something as simple as water should not have been a challenge for this resort but it was and the people as the front desk were basically jerks about this. Basically we gave up and ended up buying WATER at this 'all-inclusive' resort Other issues we had with this resort - - they let day-trippers in, - food was left in plates around the pool, - the "Italian" restaurant was disgusting, - the stock wine was horrible, - the front desk personnel were basically not service oriented, - the pool closed at 6PM, - no one checks the bands they give you allowing anyone off the street in the resort (we found a few in the gym), Oh - the gym, what a joke - no A/C, equipment was at least 30 years old, half of it didn't work, no sanitizing spray for before/after use, no towels to wipe sweat off of yourself or the machines, exercise mats were filthy Someone had their IPad stolen out of their room on our floor The lifeguard was asleep in a shack by the pool (I have a picture of this but wont post it) Garbage on the beach, glass in the water I could go on.... This is not my first stay at a Caribbean resort but it was certainly the last time I will go to RUI Ocho Rios.

I wouldn't recommend this resort

The bed was so hard. Food was tasteless. The service was good but the resort in itself needs to be upgraded.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

There's Red Stripe Beer in the fridge. Every. Day.

The stress-ousting massages and treatments at the Renova Spa. Swoon.

The Jerk Chicken Hut on the beach. You'll be jammin' here ofter. Probably daily.

The phrase you hear everywhere, "No problem, Mon." Go ahead and start practicing.

The epic snorkeling that's right on the beach. Brightly colored fish will make your underwater pics dazzle.

Dunn's River Falls and swimming with the dolphins - close by and always touristy fun.

 

What We'd Change

The drive to the resort will take about an hour, but once you step foot onto the resort grounds, you'll be in love.

 

Why You Should Go

It's so worth it to upgrade to the Deluxe Wing - concierge service 24/7.

You can get a free introductory to scuba lesson in the pool. Dive in!

There are water sports out the wazoo - windsurfing, kayaking and snorkeling.

On land, you can play tennis, volleyball and take an aerobics class.

The entertainment team blows it out, starting with the nightly reggae, steel drums & chill beats.

The botanical gardens of Canbrook aren't your average "flower forest." It's uber lush.
