Amazing

We have traveled to multiple Riu locations. This one by far had the most activities to do. I had visited this hotel in 2015 and since then it has been renovated. It is beautiful. The staff keeps the hotel immaculately clean!! Everyone was so friendly and asking if we needed anything. During the day, they have group volleyball, pool group exercise, and activities for kids. Once a week they do a foam pool party (so much fun!). At night there are multiple activities going on main stage has entertainment, also dj at the beach, neon beach party, another dj from 11-12a. My only complaint would be no Mimosas at breakfast (we tried multiple different places). The dinning options are not as great as the other Riu's we have been to but the day activities and nightlife make this hotel much better!! The buffet would allow you to take food to your room, a pot of coffee to your room, or dessert. Everyone was very accommodating which made for an amazing vacation!

Bang for Buck

Riu Ocho Rios offered an experience unrivaled to none. The staff is extremely friendly. It's safe, the room far exceeded my expectations. RIU plays attention to the little things be environmental conscious -- each room requires you to use the room key to activate the circuit breaker so you don't waste power. However when it comes to charging electronic devices you just be in the room for outlets the work. The food is amazing. Howefer, if you're looking for local affair of food, don't be afraid to venture into town with a group of people to experience the local cuisine. The beahces are relaxing, the surf us minimal, and it's often more comfy I. The water than it id on the beach. The water is an intoxicatong turquoise. The beach and sand are a pale brown and soft. If you are visiting family the resort charges $100 us dollars a day for 10am-6pm, however it may be cheaper to rent a room for the day if visitors plan on staying more than one day. For those of you who enjoy cigarettes, the beaches are limited to specific areas where you can smoke, and be enlightened by Bob Marley cigarette of choice. The grounds are massive, clean, and inviting. There's show each day and night. Excursion to break up the monotony of resort life gets boring for you. Overall, I would come back to Riu Ochoa Rios.

Best Vacation Ever!

Hands down the best Vacation I have ever been on! Everyone, all the staff was super friendly and kind. Always smiling and making sure you are having a good time and enjoying your stay. Everyone was very helpful and willing to help you at any time. The entertainment staff was amazing. The food was good. Most the restaurants were good and easy to get into (no reservations, def plus). The Kulinarium was by far the best Restaurant there. All the buffet was what you would expect at any resort, good but lack some flavor but had a good variety.The beach was always clean and beautiful. The pools just as amazing. Our room was beautiful except I booked a ocean view room and we had a huge palm tree blocking our view. That was prob one of my biggest disappointment there. They dont have servers yet that come to you while your at the pool to get your drinks. I wasnt expecting them too yet either since they just reopened and still working out kinks. The cleaning staff was on top of it. I dont think I ever saw a mess or garbage just laying around. Over all the resort is just beautiful. Excursions are easy to book. Really liked the fact they have someone you meet up with the next day after checking in who goes over excursions and the resort with you. I felt safe the whole time and it was easy to relax and just enjoy my stay there. Just beautiful and Relaxing. The staff was always making us smile and laugh. I would def come back.

Nice room and beaches/pools were just fine. Plenty of available free watersports provided by hotel. Service by hotel staff not so good. Short-staffed in all of the restaurants and the people that were working not in any particular hurry to serve you.

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.
