Relaxing Purchase

I was so very pleased to reach my destination. The ride from the airport was informational. It was like taking a class about the country without a video, but being there. Feeling the temperature, the wind, the sunlight, hearing the sounds, seeing the cars drive on the wrong side of the street, for us. From the beginning it was great. After reaching our destination, we were hungry. How suprised, and thrilled we were to attend St. Ann's. The buffet was outrageously wonderful. Everything we could imagine was there. Riu Ochus Riios was everything wonderful. I can't imagine anything more. The beach was beautiful, and relaxing, so were the pools. Anyone wanting to get away, and relax. This is the place to be. I lost my Ipad and didn't find it. Other than that, the vacation was perfect.!!!

Needs lots of improvement on room beds, the food is not good, beach has lots of rocks, needs to be cleaner of rocks, people are not too friendly, at least this was my experience at the resort, had my renewal of vows there and took 35 guests with me they all complain about the same thing.

Not 5 star hotel at all!!!!

It was a great vacation because it was Jamaica and cake around when you're in Jamaica but the real needs to be Gutted and redone! The pool is filthy and no one ever cleans it. It's sad because it could be a beautiful place if it was kept up. There is no suggestion box there is no bar Service at the beach or at the pool which is what you want when your on vacation. The pool closes at 6 o'clock which is ridiculous and they put the sign up every day for treatment but there's no treatment ever for the pool the place is filthy everywhere you walk there's dirt on the floor dishes straws same thing as in the pool it's not something you want to see when we were there people are throwing up in the pool feces in the pool horrible! The rooms are outdated from the 1970s especially the TV that's broke. It is not what you see on the on the Internet. No one cares at the real there's no one to complain too there's no security on the beach is your security on the property which is strange but it was my first time staying at the Rio in my last. Next time I go back to iberostar where you get top-of-the-line service at all times. Some of the bartenders had attitude it was like as if you bothered them to make a drink. I stay there for 10 days because it was my birthday. I felt like I was in a prehistoric hotel!! I strongly believe that they should close it and renovate the whole entire place to make it more appealing to the vacationer !! It's sad because it's such a beautiful view from the hotel but they are very short staffed and they have people doing lots of jobs so naturally everything else will diminish because of that. It was a broken light By the elevator for four whole days until somebody finally fixed it because we walking in the dark to get on the elevator to go back to our rooms. It smells of mold and it smells of mildew in many places on the property along with all the filth well around the area . I spoke to many people and we all had the same complaints but it amazes me how the place is full of vacationers even though we have all these problems and issues. I guess once you pay for your trip that's it there's no one there to help you about anything . I will not be staying at another review property ever

Beautiful Resort, Great time

The resort was beautiful and we were given a complimentary upgrade on the room size. Our balcony was spacious with direct views to one of the 2 pools at this resort. The food was really good! My favorite place was the Jerk Hut on the beach.The live entertainment was really nice- I loved the Micheal Jackson show. For men- be sure to pack pants or jeans some of the nicer restaurants would not allow men in wearing shorts. Overall, the staff were extremely polite and helpful.

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.
