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.

Great Beach Resort!
This resort has a very nice white sand beach with turquoise blue water. The ocean is fairly calm and easy to wade into to cool off. Plenty of lounge chairs on the beach with ample beach frontage to enjoy. The beach is a notch below 7-mile beach in Negril but still very nice. The weather called for rain every day but only had 5 minutes of rain in one week. Mostly sunny and warm. The pools were very nice and the water was a comfortable temperature. Spent every afternoon in the deluxe side pool and never too crowded. The food here is average and very typical of a RIU property. However, there is a Jerk chicken hut on the beach and it is phenomenal! No Vendors on the beach!!! Almost every tropical resort we have been to, we get annoyed by all the vendors pushing their goods (especially 7-mile beach). No vendors here during the daytime. Honestly we had a great time here and I would definitely go back...nothing to complain about. The only deterrent would be the long drive from the airport. More
So we did get married there....
This is definitely a huge disappointment. I have been to this resort multiple times over the last five years. First time in 2013- WOW!!!!! Very friendly staff, extraordinary entertainment and beautifully kept hotel.....every time we re-visited, we kept seeing the hotel just decaying....mold can be seen on the walls, curtains, etc. There is a lot of broken concrete around the property, pools are not kept clean, the pool bar is full of bugs and sticky....it really isn't a pleasant experience anymore. During our most recent visit there in November 2016, we had our wedding ceremony at the beach. Our wedding coordinator, KEISHA ADAMS, was absolutely horrible. She did not care one bit about our BIG day. The only time she has been available is when she needed to collect the money. She was rude, always sending us off stating she was too busy. When we finally got to sit down with her, we have made our selections for flowers, decorations, etc. When the orders arrived, my flowers were nothing like I ordered. She dismissed my comments and literally pushed me towards the ceremony location just to get it over with. She did not help us organize and totally disappeared right after the ceremony was over. We paid over 2000$ for ceremony that was suppose to take about 30-45 mins and the pastor was done after 10minutes. Worse news of all!!! This men did not even know our names!!!! When I approached my husband at the altar, the pastor asked me what my name was. I was beyond shocked. Please take my advice and spend your money elsewhere....definitely do not have your wedding here. They really treat you as another business transaction without any consideration for your input. The staff members are overworked and way underpaid, they lack any kind of motivation to entertain the guests. The place is dirty, damaged, and their only asset is the beautiful location on a wide sandy beach far from the noises of the city. Stay away!!!! at least until they decide to take care of the property and their workers.More
Staff service great
Visited club Riu for 10 days. Ideal for families and couples. Staff friendly, helpful and do their best to make your holiday a good one. Front of House staff were exceptionally good they never tired to help and always had a smile and positive attitude.More
We had an amazing time at the Riu Ocho Rios in May, 2015. We travel in a group of 6, 4 adults and 2 children and this was our first all-inclusive trip. The food was great, no complaints from anyone. The rooms were good - a couple of faux-paus - we found a pair of "bride" undies in one room tucked behind a curtain and the other room had a distinct "smell" at night. What really makes this resort is all of the wonderful staff - we had an absolute blast. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and hilarious. Great, great time had by all!More
Recent Stay at Riu - Montego Bay
Fantastic Hotel, with outstanding staff and entertainment. Food was wonderful and the excursions were fabulous. We went on Cool Runnings catamaran to Dunn's River Falls - it was a super time and a great day. Best of all was the diving (DSD) at MoBay with Diego Cebrian and the Scuba Caribe. Diego and the other SC staff (Charles, etc) were the best. Diego instructs in Spanish and English and is a real pro. Really enjoyed the dives on the reefs off MB. A bucket list item for sure - I highly recommend it.More
