Best Beach Ever!

We just returned form our third trip to Riu Ocho Rios and couldn't be happier. If you are most interested in the quality of the beach at a resort then this is the place for you. There is a large barrier reef about 500 yards off shore that keeps the water very calm and shallow (so lots of the awesome glowing blue color), plus another large reef about 25-50 yards off shore with fantastic snorkeling. There used to be issues with "vendors" walking up and down the beach and on jetski in the water, but the resort has taken action and they are no longer present, which was a huge plus. The rooms are spacious although the mattresses are uncomfortable. Plenty of options for your meals with great quality. We'll be back for a fourth time soon!

All-Inclusive First Timer

Couldn't imagine much better! For my first time doing all-inclusive I was skeptical, but the staff, facilities and restauraunts were amazing! I couldn't believe the value for the money. Definitely stay in Ocho Rios so you can go to Mystic Mountain and Dunn's River Fall's and if you do choose this resort you should definitely add the transportation when booking... The 2 hour ride was one of my favorite parts and AmStar will give you rides to town other days as well and you won't have to pay for cabs. Look no further, do it!

This was the best vacation I ever had. The resort was excellent. I was not to impressed with the restaurants but the Buffet and the Plantation were great.

The beach was a bit smaller than I expected. The pools were dirty in certain areas. Having a more legitimate hot tub would have made the experience nicer. We got the ocean front view and the view felt more like an ocean side view.

What's to Love

It's a tropical oasis - lush foliage, 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.
