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, and have exclusive use of a couple of gourmet restaurants.

Enjoyable Stay but Hotel is Tired and staff is inconsistent
Food and Service We enjoyed our stay here but the Staff was very inconsistent in their service. This was especially obvious in someone the restaurants. Some cared, some were woefully indifferent. Buffet had a decent selection and was good but nothing stellar. example - The Japanese servers at one point brought my appetizer to the table and then came back a minute later and took it back. I watched him then deliver it to another table. He then brought me another of the same dish 10 minutes later. Pool We luckily read the reviews here and booked the Adults only section as we ran into a couple moving over as the regular pool had fece floating in at one day and the staff did not clear the pool just picked it out. I never once saw the pool cleaned just the staff ladling buckets of surface water off the use for walkway cleaning. Entertainment - Bands were very enjoyable but the stage shows were poorly done lip syncing. Rooms - were damp and musty smelling, tired decor that was from comments made in poor repair in some rooms. floor felt greasy (swiftered versus mopped) but the maids came in every day to clean and were very nice. Wifi is free in the Adults section but poor. Summary If you are expecting a 5 star ror even 4 then you will be disappointed this is a 3 for most areas but a 1 or 2 from a pool hygiene perspective. We had a great time and as we were in the adults section and I would not ever book outside this area.More

Management do not care that pool filtration system has been broken for a month!
I would have given this place 5 stars based on our first impressions but there were a few unsettling things - especially since it costs so much. The property is absolutely lovely, and staff are wonderful, and the food delicious. But we were very unhappy with the pool, that has apparently been broken for a month. The water is cloudy, and full of particulate matter, and quite gross. They have a second pool, which was beautifully pristine, but it was for the "adults only suite" wing, so we were not allowed to use it. The staff say they're embarrassed by the way its been dealt with. The fountains have not worked since November 2014. And our toddler got sick, and was throwing up.More

We Will Be Back!!
Just got home 2 days ago from Riu Ocho Rios and am so glad we chose this resort. This was a college graduation gift to my daughter and her roommate. Lovely bus ride from the airport, air conditioned, cold Red Stripe, very chatty bus driver. Selina at the front desk upgraded us to the Adult Section of the resort and we were very glad about that. There were many, many children on the family side and we were really looking to chill and soak up the Caribbean sun. Our suites were very nice, clean and fully stocked daily. Anne-Marie, the server at the Beach Bar, was fantastic and treated us like Princesses, everyone did in fact. The food was AMAZING and such variety and presentation. The Japanese Restaurant was so good. Some of the best Salmon I have ever had. The beach was beautiful, clean, and nobody was selling anything on the beach. In fact, nobody hassled anyone on the resort trying to sell stuff. You have to find Richard the Yoga Instructor. Excellent instructor and very, very professional. The massage at the Spa was fantastic! Thank you Dianna. This was our first time in Jamaica and we were treated so well, fed so well, lovely drinks daily (Chocolate Martini)...we will be back.More

Awesome stay but 1 bad encounter
My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed this resort especially the jerk hut and pool and beach. Alex, Chris and Ann Marie were awesome. The hotel was clean and well kept with lots of food especially the buffet with lots of variety. We will definitely be back only if we don't have to encounter with staff trying to sell us DRUGS. We were dining one evening after a long day and a staff was extremely nice we thought he was soliciting tips. then he asked what we will be doing later. We told him we will be visiting the Margaritaville and he offered to sell us something that will (make us have a great night) he said it was ecstacy and its US$200 that one pill could share for my girlfriend and I. When he walked off we quickly asked the hostess for his name but we did not tell her the details, she told us it was Rashane Walker. When he returned we tried to be nice and told him we were not interested and he asked if we would like some Jamaican smoke and we clearly told him we do not smoke. We overheard another couple the next day by the pool saying they bought the (smoke) for US$50 from the guy and they later learnt that it was illegal and got rid of it quickly. The description fits this same guy short dark and stout with a young face. He seems to target young couples. This guy will tarnish the reputation of this awesome property and we hope when we visit again next year the Management would have wiped out this bad egg, Love this beautiful hotel and all staff were professional except this very scary encounter. I would definitely recommend Riu Ocho rios to my friends and tell them to beware of this guy.More

butlins in jamaica
we went to this hotel for our nephews wedding. the rooms were damp and when we asked for assistance we were begrudgingly sent a maid to clean and change the beds. staff would not serve unless tipped and were rude with a terrible attitude. on several occasions we were offered drugs by the staff and the smell of drugs could be smelt all over the property. there was a group of other guests in the hotel who were drinking heavily and causing mayhem, one of them assaulted the staff and was arrested but still the management did nothing to prevent the continuing bad behaviour. when I asked to see the management eventually two gentlemen came and would not take responsibility for the bad behaviour of the other guests and said they could do nothing to prevent this kind of thing because this would alienate the holiday company they had travelled with and in turn would loose riu hotels the bookings? The food was often served cold and the wedding although lovely on the day created many unseen extra expenses and my nephew and his wife despite months of planning had to set up the venue themselves. I would most definitely not recommend this hotel, what a disappointment.More
