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.

We have just returned from a fantastic two week holiday at this lovely hotel! We were a little worried about the weather for this time of year. The weather was brilliant, hot (a little muggy) and sunny most days, with a few cloudy afternoons and only 2 short storms! After reading reviews before we went we decided to book and make our own mind up. Our experience was great - our room 3355 was in a lovely location over looking the small lake, we could see the pool and the sea although the view was limited we were happy with this. All inclusive was brilliant, cocktails were fantastic (bob marley & pina colada were our favourite) buffet restaurant food was good. Chefs prepared fresh omelettes each morning for breakfast whilst you wait - I loved this! The speciality restaurants were great, our favourites were Mandalay (Asian) and The steak house - steaks cooked to perfection -- try the Australian cube roll - thumbs up! Room and all public areas including pool very clean. We decided to do quite afew excursions which were fantastic, would highly recommend mystic mountain, southern adventure with a tipple, Zion Bus and Dunns river. Overall, great holiday, friendly staff, great entertainment team, lovely hotel - we would recommend our friends and family to go! Thank you for making our 2015 holiday a great one Team Riu Ocho Rios! xxMore

Excellent Holiday!

What a fab hotel, we arrived late afternoon and were allocated our room key, free safe key and went straight to our room. We were on the fifth floor and had a wonderful view. The room service was very good, rooms were cleaned each day and towels replaced and the fridge restocked and the optics. The fridge did stop working once and our shower head broke on the same day, we reported this to reception and by the evening both were fixed. After reading some of the reviews beforehand I was a bit apprehensive about the food but we always found something nice to eat and one of us was vegetarian, yes there is a lot of Jamaican cuisine on offer but overall the food was very good and we have no complaints. The Jerk Chicken hut served up delicious chicken but the sauce was too hot for me, ok though if you have a spicy pallet. The Hotel grounds were kept in excellent condition and it was nice to see turtles and fish in the pond. The best part for us was the animation team who were absolutely fantastic, so hard working, friendly and talented, a special thanks to Pim, Boom Boom, Verona, Kiki, Rocky, Ricky, George, Richard, and all the other members of the team. I can honestly say it was the best holiday I have ever had and can't wait to go back. Well Done Riu.More

Biggest beach, plenty of space by the beach, fun entertainment ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT! Their Casino pays you A LOT of $$$$ ! We've stayed at many different resorts throughout Jamaica from Couples Resort to Sandals. My family and I like LUXURY and great food and we also LOVE entertainment. The rooms are Okay but all have amazing view of the beach on the adult side! However, if you are looking to dine with gourmet food and restaurants like Sandals Riviera Grande Resort or Couples Swept Away, then RIU is not for you. They have a thousand options on food, waaaaay more than you'd expect at ANY resorts around Jamaica BUT it's not top quality. They have a billion choices on vegetarian food, steaks, seafood, American, Chinese, Steaks, etc BUT nothing set up in a very fancy setting. It's all casual setting. Stay away from Tushima, the food is terrible! If anything, just get the fish entree and the soup and the salad: say NO to sushi!!! Remember, this place is ridiculously big, and people who work here will entertain you as you are here to vacation, not to just stuff your face all day! They have the best drinks made for you. They hold activities on the beach, by the pools, by the kids center ALL day to keep everyone 100% happy and entertained! The entertainers work soooo very hard ALL day and ALL night keeping everyone happy! The beach is HUUUGE, the water is super clear, the adult side beach has a million silver fish under your feet! Just no waiters to serve you on the beach so you can get your fat behind over to the bar right behind you a few steps away! The pools have plenty of space and cabanas at NO charge! Other resorts charge you for cabanas! The BEST private local guide company to use that is super cheap and will give you a billion hours of whatever you want to do and go local places is: Yardie Tours! They are super professional, clean, friendly, and local! Go to Blue Hole and Rafting and Tubing, don't miss Dunn's River Falls! We even took horse rides inside the beach through Hooves but Yardie Tours set it up. They have Chucckha horse rides BUT Hooves is all locals and they take you through plantation and give you a whole local experience in small groups or just privately! Again, if you are picky about food and how your room looks like, then don't come here. The rooms are super clean and very spacious BUT they have a muggy smell to them due to humidity.... If you need people to be at your service at all times and pamper you, then you definitely need to be either at Sandals resorts or Couples Resorts or at Moon Palace. If you want to have a great time, good food, and don't need babysitting because you are emotionally needie, then this place is great for you! Even though we loooove luxury treatment, we found out that when we are out on the beach playing, at the pool dancing, on a catamaran cruise relaxing/socializing, touring local places, rafting, climbing, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, watching sunset, cuddling, meeting locals, shopping at farmer's market, watching the poorest kids and people of Jamaica smiling while they have next to nothing living in shacks, your hotel bed and overdone piece of steak at the steakhouse is the last thing you'll ever complain or worry about! Nothing is dirty at this place, you just need to settle for Okay food.More

believe me when i say don't go there

The staff don't know what they are doing, very disrespectful as well and one of the managers Karrien or Kerrian (not sure of spelling) never smiles at all I don't know how she is a manager. The room had ants! WE HAD TO MOVE ROOM plus it was far away the kids club was rubbish nothing to do there just a game and a tv for a big chain hotel like this all rubbish. The food was average the chicken tasted as if they had it for a few days. Not to mention the flies!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyday I had to throw away some section of my food.. Flies always on table and on the food which is disgusting as they can bring disease and don't bother complaining they all team up with each other and give you the same pretentious answers. They really does make Jamaica look backwards. And the insect bites are awful.. and beds dusty! My skin itches with the dirt!! or insect who knows! Aweful placeMore

yearly vacation

I Went Back to RIU OCHO RIOS , This year from 9/9/15 TO 9/25/15. The trip was great there were changes made to the resort that I think was not smart they took away the tables on the beach and also the pool area. So I guest you have to put your food or drinks on the floor or in the sand. The Deluxe suite is a joke. ALL of the gold band people came over to the red & orange side and took up all of our pool chairs so we had no place to sit, but we could not go to there side. Let them stay on their side, or just do away with it. When i was there the big managers came and all of the staff was tense. And not even smiling. Over all i had a good time, The food was excellent . I would continue going to that resort. thanksMore
