ClubHotel Riu Ocho Rios  

Backed by thick rainforest and fronted by a pristine beach, the ClubHotel Riu Ocho Rios is every inch the tropical retreat.

The location is the big talking point at the ClubHotel Riu Ocho Rios. Not only is it set in tropical gardens, it’s pulled up against a sandy beach and the town centre is only a 10-minute drive away.

If you stay in the Deluxe Wing, you’ll bed down in suite-style rooms.

Good be great....but ahhhhh.....NO!!

Let me begin with saying that I would go back; because I now know what to expect and that ain't much. I would take my grandchildren there for vacation but this is definitely NO RELAXING GETAWAY. The RIU at Ocho Rios could be a 4 star resort IF, you were treated like a paying customer at check in, if your could take a hot shower during your stay, if you could watch TV in HD and not on a tube, if you could make a pot of coffee in your room, if you want a safe to lock your valuables in, if you want to sleep in a bed that could accommodate you and your significant other and most importantly if the staff acted like they gave a care about their JOBS. Yes, most of the staff are RUDE, LACKADAISICAL and CURT, I could go on but you get the point. Restrooms in the lobbies, never had paper towels or a dryer to dry your hands, there was a glass filled with a drink and a banana peel in the elevator for 24 hours, dishes with food on the terrace areas and chicken bones on the beach. PLEASE TUI Group provide your staff with some customer service and hospitality training!!!!!More

I really do love this resort, but the front desk experience is always awful and gets worse every year. Yet 6 visits later I still go back- why 1. The food is excellent and the wait staff very friendly. Keisha makes the best omelettes! The jerk ht on the beach is also a winner 2. The beach is rocky, but works for a short swim 3. Location and rooms facing the beach what a beautiful breeze all day long. The rooms could use some upgrading now. 4. The front desk is very trying to say the least, you book an ocean front room and then they try to persuade you to take an upgrade to a room that does not have an ocean view- don't take it! Then months in advance you request a certain room type and of course they told you to do this, then the room is unavailable and nothing similar. Then they get mad at you as if it is your fault, finally I get the same manager every year who tries to sort it out but he doesn't do the best job about it. Patronizing to say the least. I took new friends there and they were equally frustrated. Bottom line less days here more days in Negril!More

Thomsons say this is a 5* I disagree The views are stunning the staff friendly How ever the hotel looks a little tied and could do with a little make over The pool is not so clean there's quite often scum on top off the pool there doesn't seem if there r any filters running to keep it clean The food is fine with a good choice but does repeat it self every day If your thinking off coming hear and want some trips out its very expensive we even went to the beach guys even though they were a little cheaper it's still a lot of money for what u pay for More

Riu the Recommended Ruin!

I visited this hotel 9 years ago and thought it was heaven on earth in 2007. Oh how things have changed. First things first, I arrived at the hotel early, around 9am. I was told check in was 3pm. The wait was excruciating. I was told we could eat and drink, as our suitcases stood tall in the lobby of the establishment. It was hot, I was exhausted. The hotel had nothing in place to accommodate early guests. This is a five star establishment I was at least hoping for a comfortable room to unwind! But NO! I did not receive my room keys until 4:30pm. So if you do the math, it took me a whooping seven and a half hours to be placed! Following this extensive delay, when we got to the room there was a woman from the cleaning team still getting our room ready. It definitely was a rushed job! Sigh! However, despite this I definitely received the beautiful ocean view I paid for. Then it was time for a shower, NO RAGS! I had to call the front desk to request rags! This happened three more times during my 7 day stay. It seemed surreal how something as simple as this could not be resolved. So back to the shower. As I turned the shower on I wondered if I was being punked. The water pressure was unbearably low. It was a struggle every single day. Sigh! Then it was time for bed. The "comforter" felt so soggy and somehow seemed dirty. The comforter felt more like curtains or drapes rather than bed linen. I was thinking 5⭐️? This couldn't be. The room was a standard room that was stocked with four bottles of strong alcohol but not even a kettle for making tea. Not good enough if you aren't a drinker. Hated the room! However despite the negativity, there were a few high points, of which were the food, beach, spa and the entertainment staff! BRILLIANT! These areas made this trip a good one. I would recommend this hotel, however, I would advice being a thorn in their side if you are a tad bit uncomfortable. Make your voice heard in a respectable manner of course. More

Yan I,

Steamy but Fun

It was steamy in hot & humid Jamaica in August. Would prefer cooler, less humid weather weather. Food: mediocre with lack of variety. Not bad just not up to my standards as a foodie. Not as good as cruise ships. Emphasis on buffets. Jerk Chicken Hut was a big hit with all lunch time guests eating meals on the beach. Beach: ample beach space and shade under palm trees. I'm not a beach guy but found it comfortable under trees with breeze. More beach chairs than anywhere I've ever been. Clear water. Free kayaks, sailboats, etc. Room: ample space to spread out a bit. A lot like US hotel room. Our ceiling fan and TV did not work upon arrival but that was quickly taken care of. No complaints. Service: no matter where you were, staff was friendly and helpful Entertainment: limited but hard working and really trying to please whether it was pool or beach side activities during the day or on stage at night General comments: Bus transportation from airport in Montego Bay 1.5-3 hours depending on number of dropoffs Montego Bay Airport is reasonably new and organized. Don't let landing arrival customs experience and bus disorganization discourage you. "Ocean views" are distant and on angle. Drinks were easy to get and not watered down. Minibar in room was not extra. Food served 7AM-10PM No need to leave reservation Jamaican currency 126:1 US dollar Elevator was like an oven If you like steel band music, you will love the vibeMore
