Don't read too much into the bad reviews. Cone to Jamaica and live Jamaican! NO PROBLEM MON. Ok,so maybe it's a little tired here and there and yes,your room may smell a little bit musty but remember you're in the Caribbean. Go see Ricardo at the main pool bar, get yourself a Dirty Banana (with extra Rum) and enjoy the Friendliest most welcoming people you'll ever wish to meet. All the staff are helpful and friendly and some (Birdman and Georgie Porgie ) are just riot. GO, RELAX AND ENJOY IT!More
The hotel is on the beach. It was clean, grounds beautiful and the food was varied and delicious, jerk hut on the beach provided lunch and this was amazing. The staff were also helpful in every aspect. As a family we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return againMore
I have stayed at a riu before and it was an incredible experience. This one wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. We were upgraded upon arrival for free which was great but what we weren't told was that the main pool was closed for repairs for the week so everyone would be at our "deluxe" pool. Make sure your out there by 9am putting your beach towels down on a chair Cuz you won't get one. Most staff was friendly but the rude ones. Holy moly. Most of the food was good at the restraunts and buffet is so so. It's a buffet tho what do you really expect. Our room key didn't work for 2 hours and we were forced to walk back and forth to lobby which is quite a walk, to be told to go back and wait another 25 min for maintenence man. Who came and once he left door still didn't work. Manager acted like it was nothing but after some fussing we got 2 vip upgrades at the airport. That wouldn't have been done if we didn't call and call the next day. Staff just seems careless.More
ClubHotel Riu Ocho Rios Thomson Holiday.
I am flying from Dublin to Jamaica on the 12th June with Thomson Holidays. So exited !
When I booked this holiday it said Deluxe wing as attached. Reading some of the reviews I am concerned that we will not get this. I thought this would mean we would get all the restaurants. The room I booked was Double Room With Limited Sea View And Balcony. Would anyone know if we will get the Deluxe side?More
Club Riu Ochoas Rios
We booked Double room limited sea view and we couldn't access all the restaurants. We had friends in the Deluxe side and they could so we went with them. I think if we went back we would opt for Deluxe as they had a nicer room. Our holiday was good but they decided to do pool maintenance while we were there and for 6 days we couldn't sit on our balcony because the noise from the drilling was unbelievable. Shame really as it spoilt our holiday but the food was great and the staff nice and helpful. If it hadn't been for the pool saga I would have rated the hotel higher.More
