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!


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.

Great trip!

Stayed here last week. The hotel is nice and the food is good. Would not give it 5 stars but it comes close. The beach is very nice with snorkelling reefs right along the coast. Pools were nice however this was sold to us as an adults only on our side of the resort and this is not the case. There were kids in both pools. I would go back to this resort in the future.

I'm going to start by saying this was a fantastic holiday. Of course nothing is perfect but I'm not going to drag up any of my holiday imperfections. What you need to know...the hotel is very clean, a very wide choice of food. Beer and liquor supplied in room. Staff supper nice. Entertainment was entertaining with guest bands, it was a great atmosphere. All the staff work so hard so they need a special mention. Beaches are lovely. If you want a quieter side go deluxe and you will also get two extra specialty restaurants included. Snorkel trip was so worth the experience, check out the trip hut on the plantation side they seemed to be cheaper plus it's by the jerk hut which was lovely. Check out Scotches also a jerk place off site, go by taxi, use the hotel taxi, ask for Audrey she's lovely. Taxis do round trips and include them waiting for you. We will be going again next year we've still got so much to see on the Island. So enjoy an irie holiday.

All inclusive experience

Good food with a lot of variety and live entertainment, be prepared for not much quiet time- only in your room. Action packed. Beautiful beach and very good service with pleasant and friendly staff . Good family vacation spot

Was a nice stay, would've given 5 stars, but quite some inconveniences.

I was looking forward to my first vacation at a different destination, which is why I decided to go to Jamaica. I had upgraded and paid extra for the Deluxe Wing for extra services. Throughout the reservation, I had requested 2 beds but the resort property had assigned only 1 bed, and it was so frustrating since there were 3 guests sharing a room. I went to the fromt desk the following morning to move into a different room. After waiting patiently with the front desk for 30+ minutes, they decided to upgrade us to the ocean view room. I had tipped the front desk agent as a thank you gesture. WiFi that is included in the Deluxe Wing upgrade didn't always work perfectly on our devices, so it was tedious and a huge convenience to walk all the way to the front desk.Other than those unpleasant experience during the first couple days of check-in, I had a nice stay with my family. The resort is beautiful and the food was amazing. I would always tip everywhere I went on the property, and I had especially tipped generously when the service is stellar.Next time I come back to Jamaica, I would be staying at a different property. With the money & upgrade I had paid for, I personally don't feel that I got full value of it.

It may be beautiful on the outside but......

Returned to my beautiful heritage island (parents are jamaican and moved to US 40yrs ago) for a family event. We stayed at RIU Negril. Went to this resort after staying at another RIU in Negril earlier in the week. the view was beautiful but it is very very outdated. My parents (whose room was across the hall) turned off their AC and the floor was soaked in condensation and they were moved to a new room. So here are the list of other problems: 1. There was no lock on the safe and none were available until the next day even though we check in at 3pm. Never even got a notification when one was requested. 2. Too much condensation: Room was so damp entire suitcase with clean clothes were damp/wet in suitcase and swimsuits never dried well. Slipped and fell once because of the floor. 3. Spider on the blanket on the first night. 4. So we know that the towels go on the floor if we want them washed. Well, while at breakfast, after coming from the beach, housekeeping went into our room, but didn't clean it. They went in and took all of the wash cloths and didn't replace them. So when we asked for new ones so we could shower, her response was that ALL OF THE WASH CLOTHS ARE SENT OUT TO THE LAUNDRY. At the same time? There aren't any extra? and her response was Sorry, no.5. It was outdated with old tube televisions and small flat screens. 6. Bathtub had hair in the shower and was poorly cleaned. 7. Pool appeared dirty it was cloudy in the morning.8. Pacha night club smelled musty and dank. Now the beautiful part of this resort is the view and the beach. They were outstanding. the beach was well kept i.e. they cleaned the beach from all of the cups and trash. The dining areas were nice and well kept and maintained. Staff was very nice and helpful. Honestly, I would say do your research before going here. outside was beautiful. but rooms....not so much. NOTE:***just stayed in the standard room, not deluxe
