I had a really good time at the Riu ocho Rios; the food was tasty lots of variety, entertainment group was magical they had us laughing constantly, they deserve a medal. But there was a few dissapointment, such as the elevator was out of service daily and it was like a sweat box when and if it works at any given time, and that old big pregnant TV needs to go! It was so old and shabby we refuse to even touch it. The drapes are a disgrace how filthy and dirty they were, finally we ask for a key to the safety box but then found out all safety box uses the same key( really!!!!!!) I was flabbergasted! Would go back if they make a few changes to improve the problems.

Beautiful Resort

The Riu resort is beautiful, depending on which side of the resort you are on makes a difference in your walk to the lobby. The place is really big so take time to explore the entire resort. The food is good and has a vast variety of options as well as several different restaurants. The Jerk hut on the beach is a must go! The ambiance in the entire resort is beautiful and clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating. There was an issue with the room key and maintenance was called twice and never came that is my harshest complaint. Some of the bathroom fixtures could use updating other than that this is a well kept beautiful resort. The beach is not too packed and neither are any of the pools. I had no difficulty locating chairs or umbrellas/shade. What would have allowed me to give this resort 5 stars are a few minor things: Play reggae music throughout the lobby and not just on the sound stage during the day would have helped with me really feeling like I was in Jamaica. A brochure of the events around the resort every night. I "bumped" in to entertainment each night. The only option is checking the board in the lobby that gives you a general time and location but no details and no write ups of events. The Michael Jackson tribute was a lot of fun, and the martini bar set up was great but I didn't know anything about it until I came down and "found" this entertainment. Also the complimentary fridge items in each room was a nice touch, I will be back Riu Ochi. I will be back.

Amazing experience!

The staff was always very friendly and helpful! The food was amazing, they always had a variety of dishes to choose from. They had free paddle boat, sail boat, kayak, rentals which was a wonderful way to pass the time. There is a view of the ocean from every point of the hotel. Also, their evening entertainment was always a good time! Definitely recommend this hotel!!

What's to Love

It's an all-inclusive tropical oasis - lush rolling hills and an aahh-mazing, outta-this-world beach.

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

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 airport is about 62 miles away, but the drive through the lush hills is a stunner.

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.
