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 adults-only Deluxe Wing, you’ll bed down in suite-style rooms, and have exclusive use of a private pool and a couple of gourmet restaurants.

Great Birthday Getaway

Loved it! My husband is caribbean so he really enjoyed his native food. Bread fruit,calalio, salt fish and etc... The jerk chicken was amazing. The lobby was beautiful and We had a very nice room on the adults side with awesome views. The staff was very accomendating and friendly. The gym needs a little updating and alot of the machines are broken but most people dont work out on holiday anyway. Lol...They kept the drinks coming and they keep the resort very clean. I cant express enough how clean the resort is. The beach is nice a lil rocky in some areas when you are in the water but it was not that bad. I love this place and will be back!!!More

Loved this place! Can't wait to return!

I went to the Riu Ocho Rios back in April for my cousin’s wedding. We had a great time and can’t wait to come back! As soon as you enter the property, we were blown away by the grand lobby and the beautiful beach in the background! We were offered a drink while we waited in line for check-in. The check-in process was smooth, but we arrived early and had to wait for our rooms to be ready. No problem, we were hungry and made quick work of the options in the buffet. The food is good, especially breakfast! Lunch and dinner could be better though. They have a very wide variety of food and the many fruit and ice sculptures made the experience very enjoyable. Generally, I enjoyed everything I ate, but I heard some not great comments from some in our party. But for the picky eaters like me, there are plenty American standards (pizza, french fries, chicken, etc.). The Japanese buffet was good, nothing to write home about. My favorite was the steakhouse. Good portions and well seasoned. This is a very clean resort. I always saw someone cleaning. The rooms are spacious. They could use a little remodeling (but please not that terrible upgrading they’re doing at some of the other RIU’s, please don’t!! lol) but I liked the very colonial/plantation feel of the place. You'll need to get used to having an actual key to get into the room too. The beds were a little harder than I like, but I slept well. We stayed in the family section of the resort, but I didn’t feel like there were a lot of kids running around. I could imagine this being worse over school breaks. There were a lot of people there, but we never felt overcrowded. Prepare yourself for one of the most beautiful beaches you’ll see! I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed the beach until I came here. Calm, warm, blue water. Great water for ocean kayaking. We went out quite a distance and never encountered rough water. Great experience. I didn’t notice any drink service on the beach, but don’t miss lunch at the Jerk Pit!! Get in the line early! Some of the best food you’ll have. A solid 4-star resort with great service and a beautiful, relaxing environment with a great, fun staff. Can’t wait to return!More

First Timer

I just returned last night from my first trip to Jamaica. It was a great time. We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon (before 3). There was a short line and we got all checked in. We received our key to our room promptly at 3 p.m. We had requested a roll-away bed and it was in our room when we got there. One of the sinks was clogged when we got in and the maintenance arrived shortly after to fix it. The room was very clean everyday and except for the hard bed, no complaints.. The food was descent. I don't expect much from a large resort. We ate at the buffet for breakfast and dinner. Lunch was always the jerk hut on the beach. It was DELICIOUS!!! We loved it! We enjoyed the pool and beach area. I thought they were well kept. The grounds were clean too. There was always someone sweeping or trimming shrubs. We thought the staff was great. They were always very pleasant and helpful. The nightly entertainment was enjoyable, especially the Michael Jackson tribute. Overall, we had a great trip! If someone is looking for a budget friendly vacation, this is the place. If you are looking for a 5-star luxurious resort, I would suggest someplace else. I loved it, but not sure if I would return as it is quite a ways from the airport.More

Service takes away from Beautiful Resort

Beautiful hotel, rooms are spacious and very clean. There are two "sides" to the hotel, Adults only & Family Only. Hotel is all inclusive yet those staying at the family side will not be served at the Adult side. This was an inconvenience during this trip cause the hotel placed some parties of our group on the family side instead of the adult only side. They were pretty much segregated from the "Deluxe" aka Adult Side services. Such as getting being in the adult only pool & being served drinks and yes even getting rejected when asked for a cup of ice! I personally saw no difference from the two sides except one had no kids. Oh and their most premium drink was Bacardi & Smirnoff which was only served on the Adults side. For the most part we had dinner at the buffet except one night we at the steak house. We were better off eating at the buffet. Steaks were over cooked & no taste. Salmon also tasted like rubber. If it wasn't for the group I was with this trip would've been a dud. We made the best out of it. If you're used to 4/5 star resorts then I'd suggest looking else where.More

Jay C,

Amazing holiday!

Myself and my wife travelled on the 05/11/14 from Birmingham with four other relatives. It was our first experience flying on the Thomson Dreamliner and it was a great flight. The Dreamliner is a really nice plane. The flight attendants were great and there was enough entertainment with movies, music, tv shows, music radio and games on your own colour monitor. There was lots of leg room, the seats were comfortable and there was a usb port for charging your phone, tablets etc. We flew standard class and I can't see the point of spending a lot more money flying premium class. When we landed in Montego Bay airport we had to queue for over an hour to go through immigration which wasn't a nice experience. The transfer took about an hour and three quarters and when we arrived at the hotel our check in was very quick. We were allocated a double room on the ground floor which we requested and it overlooked the gardens and we had a part view of the pool. The room was very nice with a queen size bed, two sinks, very good shower, lots of wardrobe space, iron and ironing board, safe, room optics, and fridge that was restocked every other day. We stayed on the adults and children section of the hotel. Our side had a lovely large swimming pool with swim up bar and the grounds of the hotel were spotless and immaculately kept. The beach which we went on every day was gorgeous. There was a slight problem with seaweed being washed up but this was taken care of. The buffet restaurant was amazing and the food was very good. There was an excellent selection of Jamaican and other lovely foods. You would never go hungry. Breakfast and dinner is served in the buffet restaurant while lunch is served in the poolside restaurant or you can also eat amazing jerk chicken in the beach hut. You can get snacks in the Piccilo Italian restaurant up until midnight and the food was fantastic. The homemade pizza's were gorgeous. The staff are the most friendly and amazing people that we have ever met. They were always smiling, never miserable and didn't expect tips. When they received tips they were very appreciative. The Riu entertainment team were amazing. They worked tirelessly and the shows were very good. If I had one slight criticism it would be that there was dancing most nights by the entertainment team which even though was amazing it also became a bit repetitive. The hotel management need to give the entertainment a break and bring in a few more outside acts. The best night by far was when the silver birds steel band played and also did breakdancing. Absolutely amazing. The Reggae band that played each night by the Dunns River bar were also very good. All in all we had an amazing holiday, the weather was gorgeous, staff again amazing, the hotel was spotless and we would return in a heartbeat.More
