Our Opinion

It's a large sized property with beautiful grounds. The ocean has calm, shallow waters and a reef with good snorkeling is located nearby. Lots of choices for a la carte dinners, the Steakhouse is very good and don't miss the Jerk Hut for lunch. Junior suites in deluxe wing are beautiful and very spacious. The Riu Ocho Rios is truly a great resort for all; families, couples and singles. A definite recommend!


Overview

Just minutes from town, yet nicely removed from the hub-bub, the RIU Ocho Rios is located on a breathtaking beach and surrounded by Ocho Rios famous rainforests and spectacular waterfalls. Enjoy outstanding international fine dining, get pampered at our Spa, or revel in the Caribbean sunshine with authentic tropical atmosphere and entertainment. Riu Ocho Rios will ultimately satisfy all your Caribbean desires.

Location: Directly on 7 miles of beach, on Mamie Bay in Ocho Rios, 90 min from the airport.

More 4 than 5 Nice Hotel

Came here for my partners birthday with another couple the hotel with a private transfer is about an hour and a half away from the airport!Checkin was quick, you have towel cards and a real key for your door you also get a key for your safe located in the bottom of your wardrobe losing any of these things will result in paying out. The rooms are clean and there's enough space people moan about the big telly but you don't come on holiday to sit in your room watching tv all day and night?? What I did like about the telly was it had a channel list and English programs for when you did want to put it on before bed. The maids were great came everyday left decorated towels on bed never touched anything of ours even left the tip money on the side that was left for her. The main buffet restaurant was where we eat and I can't say the service was great nope not at all. They have 4 people standing at the door offering hand sanitizer but when you get in the restaurant you are left to go and get your own table pour your own drink and almost everyone we went for a second plate our old ones was stacked still there stacked up waiting to be taken. Remember we were a group of 4 we would have to put our plates on an empty table and we saw other people join us in door g that too. The restaurant staff do try but they seem run off there feet. Cucumbers smoked salmon and planting were like gold dust they were always running out of food and took a while to reload it. Food was warm rather than hot. The Italian restaurant would be where we ate a little later in the evening because it was the only place open. Again nothing special chicken pizza pasta and salad... the 24hrs sports bar 😂😂😂 don't get me started that place stayed empty while it had great slot machines you'll go hungry. There's popcorn only when we did pop on there after getting back from being out. There was 1 dry hotdog going round and round and 1 broken cheese sandwich. Plenty of pop corn though!! At lunch time you can go down to the beach and eat from the Jerk Hut, they do Jerk chicken and cheese Burgers I paid $20 for 2 fish because we don't eat the other stuff it was very nice. There also the restaurant behind the bar to eat in at lunch time which is ok too. Bar staff are lovely always smiling and laughing with everyone. In the morning a Pineapple Shake is very nice and refreshing for Cocktails a Bob Marley is great.Entertainment team are great do the best they can to involve everyone and have so much energy that they make you tired watching them. They work so hard day and night they really deserve a few days break. The hotel isn't really close to anything you need to get a taxi to go anywhere which I didn't like you can't just stroll to the shops. Overall id say the hotel is ok, a little dated, definitely need to up there customer service in the buffet restaurant and have more food selection. Little things in the bathroom like shower gels shampoo soaps ect would of been a nice touch but it's not a major. Other than that it was fine. Nice friendly staff clean and tidy hotel.Thanks for having me ☺

Enjoyable break

Great facilities very helpful staff kind friendly and willing to go out of their way to help. Even laughing at husband's terrible jokes. Food was plentiful varied and good. The deluxe wing is alot better to stay and not much more than basic.I'll be back - hasta la vista baby!

spend your money on another chain!!

Been a Riu fan through all my trips to Dominican Rep, Montego Bay but this one took the cake. Bus ride took 2.5 hours, all other resorts greeted their guests with warm towels and cocktails we were given cold stares and attitudes given no directions to rooms that were dated, bedsheets had holes, washroom door slammed against the toilet, sliding door lock was broken, the safe was from the 1800's that you had to request to use, Mama Sandra would give you the time of day only if you purchased excursions from her, if she is the sunwing rep she should treat everyone the same. and finally we checked out of our room at 10:30 am braclets were cut off no water or food for 2hrs

Excellent service, food and location

First time at an all inclusive and experience was excellent. I was celebrating my 50th birthday and they went the extra mile to make it really special. Dinner at Mammy Bay restaurant in the hotel was excellent and big thanks to Roxanne the manager who organised surprise flower, balloons and champagne! All the food was very good and there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. The pool and beach were ideal and there was always lots of entertainment and activities.

Winter sun

Stayed here Jan 21-5 Feb had taxi from Montego Bay excellent trip takes an hour and 20 min on checking in we were immediately upgraded to deluxe as was my birthday, lovely touch showed to our garden suite nice large room comfy bed huge balcony. He hotel was full and very busy and was slightly overwhelming lol went for early dinner ques everywhere main bar area was very busy too !! But after couple days we got in the swing off things breakfast at 7 excellent fresh omelette cooked to order , juices , smoothies everything lol, steakhouse for lunch nice food, and dinnner in st Ann's at night after 8 no ques nice and relaxing , lovely long beach beautiful sand lots of loungers! Only annoying thing Canadians having 7/8/9 drinks containers filling up at once then getting drunk at pool bar!!! Special mention to sasher our waitress in st Ann's really lovely always had a drink ready for us , and Nicole our housekeeper always had our room tidy and towel art !!! So ignore the Canadians enjoy the weather and treat yourself
