Nice but wouldn’t go back

The overall experience wasn’t bad. It’s an 1 hour and 40 minutes from the airport. We originally booked the standard room but that was a mistake. They are old and the beds are really uncomfortable. Spend the money for the junior deluxe, it’s worth it. Unfortunately one of our dispensers were broke so we only had 3 bottles instead of 4 but that was no big deal. There is no room service so that was disappointing. The 2 restaurants you get access to when you have the junior deluxe room and the Asian cuisine, Manadlay (I think it’s called) are the best. The regular buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is ok. For lunch the Jerk Hut is where to go. Food is delicious and it’s on the beach. We had a good time and made some great friends. We would definitely go back to Jamaica but not to Ocho Rios again. Definitely prefer the bigger cities.

I have stayed at many of the Riu resort including Ocho Rios before but this time I was a little disappointed. The first room was very smelly so they did move me to a better room. My sister asked for more wash cloth and was told only two per room even though there were 3 people. The house keeping supervisor was sweeping the hallway didn't stop to let us go by still speaking on her phone. The elevator didn't work the 3 days I was there. But the food and drinks cont to be good. I enjoyed the varieties and the drinks. The dining staff was very pleasant.

Great Beach and Water

We enjoyed our stay at the RIU, however, the food was not varied a lot, so it became repetitive after a few days, while the food was delicious , we just would have preferred to see more variation in food. The service at one of the Deluxe wing restaurants they had messed up our order and switched it with another couples by accident and we ate it anyway however the other couple sat for another to get their correct order. While some of the staff seemed very nice, we did get an overall sense of just not feeling welcome at first. It kind of seemed like "I'm just here to get my hours in" kind of a vibe. Other than the rest of the staff was fabulous and the resort was great.

When I first got to my room it smelled like the floors were cleaned with dirty water. The following days cleaning were much better. The bed sheets were clean. The beach and pool areas are lovely but generally the facility needs to be renovated. Dead bugs were splattered in most corners. The night entertainment was good as well as good reception for WiFi on the beach. There are no servers on the beach area so don’t expect to have drinks brought to you while lounging. . The jerk hut was good and always on time. Wished there was more availability for local food. The spa area is nicely kept

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.
