Another Win for Riu

This is the second Riu we've stayed at in the last 2 years. We will continue to stay in their resorts. The view from the front & the back of this resort are gorgeous! The beach lines one side & mountains the other. The only thing we had to complain about was waiting an hour & 15 minutes for our food at the Italian restaurant. When it did come out, it was delicious though. The steakhouse was our favorite a la carte restaurant at the resort. The buffet was good also & changed every night. We enjoyed the nightly shows & the DJ playing music afterwards to dance to. The resort also left a cake in our fridge on my birthday, without being told about it. It is about an hour & a half drive from the airport on the shared transportation. It's worth it to sit on the beach with a Bob & Rita Marley though. We will definately be back but not as soon as we'd like!

Best Trip Ever

My trip to Riu Ocho Rios with my friends was phenomenal. It was hands down one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. I don’t even know where to start. The service from beginning to end was amazing. The food options were authentic and the endless drinks topped it off. The Riu staff members went above and beyond to shape our experience. Jacius, the first Riu worker we met, welcomed us with open arms and helped us bring all of our bags to our room without a single complaint. A special shoutout to Remy for serving us during our first meal out there! The jerk chicken and rice and peas was my favorite meal each day- thanks to Anthony! The pool side bar was definitely one of our favorites. Sheldon, Kemar, and Travis were the best bartenders who always kept our glasses full and had us laughing endlessly. The entertainment with Birdman and his crew was lively and always gave us something to do each day. Please make sure you see Mr. D of ScubaCaribe for all of your excursions!!! He hooked us up with very affordable excursion deals. We went horseback riding alongside the ocean with the help of our good friend Marcus and had an unforgettable zip lining experience with Michael and Bruce. But it was the ScubaCaribe boat that was the highlight of our trip. We sailed out to Dunn’s River with the best group of people. Donovan was the most amazing and patient lifeguard that assisted my friend and me during snorkeling. As a non-swimmer, he made that one of the best experiences for me. DJ Trilla kept us dancing on the boat and PG taught us all the moves. Captain Chris, Pringles, and Abby were welcoming hosts. We had such a blast on the boat that we didn’t want to get off. Our last night out there was magical and we all left with a bang. We definitely will be back.

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.

Unlimited access to Splash Water World.

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

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 volleyball or 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.
