Get back to nature at awe-inspiring Ocho Rios oceanfront all inclusive
The natural beauty of Jamaica radiates at ClubHotel Riu Ocho Rios, an all-inclusive resort on a half-moon cove. The resort features dramatic waterfalls and lush natural parks close to Ocho Rios rain forests. ClubHotel Riu Ocho Rios is family friendly, while couples and singles are drawn to the nightclub, spa and proximity to Dunn's River Falls. Beachgoers choose from a variety of water sports, though the plush loungers and swim-up pool bar are equally tempting. After sunset, guests are serenaded by live music and tempted by several dining options.

 

Highlights
  • Stunning beach, gardens and lush natural beauty
  • Wide variety of dining options
  • Live entertainment nightly
  • Close to Dunn's River Falls

 

Rooms

The elegant 856 guest rooms of ClubHotel Riu Ocho Rios blend naturally with the lush gardens and turquoise waters surrounding the resort. All rooms are equipped with satellite TVs, radio alarm clocks and mini-bars. The resort offers three levels of suites, all with flat screen TVs.

 

 

Features

Tempting options abound at meal time, as guests choose among mouth-watering buffets and a la carte restaurants, including "Sir John" Gourmet Restaurant. At lunchtime, don't miss the jerk station for Jamaican barbecue. The breakfast buffet offers spot cooking stations; a 24-hour snack and beverage service cures late-night hunger. Two additional a la carte restaurants are available for guests in "superior" rooms.

 

The Renova Spa offers a variety of therapies, body and facial treatments, including couples and Swedish massages and the signature Renova Combination, a full 80 minutes of bliss.

Good Time

Entertainment was awesome. All of the employees were so nice and welcoming. Location is the only downfall for this resort being it's a couple of miles away from downtown Ohco Rios. It was an all-around nice vacation and you couldn't beat the price.

Riu Ocho Rios Resort

This all inclusive resort is beautifully laid out. The restaurants in the hotel had a lot of variety. We would have liked to have seen more local Jamaican food presented. The staff for the most part was friendly, there were a few sour apples in the bunch. The drinks were plentiful and anything you could want, the bartenders with a tip made them as strong as you wanted. As far as tipping, when someone is standing there with their hand out it takes the enjoyment out of it. The entertainment even though they were amateurs was first rate, the skits were very funny and enjoyable. The MC (PIM) handled everyone perfectly. The beach was well taken care of with plenty of loungers on the beach and pool side. With the average temp in the 80s, the AC in the room was sufficient, though at night we slept with the sliding door open (5th floor). The open air setting of the seating was awesome, and very pleasant for every meal. If you don't enjoy yourself there it is your own fault. We loved it.

Best Friend's Wedding & Getaway

What you see is what you get for this resort -- it is the typical 3 star hotel. I went down to this hotel for a wedding. The wedding ceremony itself was amazing -- good setup, prompt service, and an AWESOME photographer. Pros: Amazing staff, good cocktails (in terms of preparation, not quality of liquor), very impressive shows (we had acrobats, fire breathers, Jamaican steel drums, etc.), snorkeling right on the beach, good food (in comparison with other Jamaican resorts) Cons: location (it's 1.5-2 hours away from the airport in Montego Bay), the beds are uncomfortable, the alcohol selection is very poor, the hotel needs to be renovated (old paint, etc.)

Had a great time!

As a first time traveler at an all-inclusive resort my experience was pretty good. The resort grounds is very large, if you go in a group, make sure they place you in the same building as it can be a trek to the other side of the resort. We enjoyed the food and service as they are better than your average fare (from my experience on cruises). The staff were very friendly and hard working. The rooms were pretty average and did not feel too underwhelming. We splurged a little for an oceanfront view which was definitely worth the money as we had a perfect view with a balcony. Make sure to visit the jerk hut on the beach for some delicious jerk chicken, sausages, and pork. It was defnitely a go-to lunch spot for us almost everyday. As for activities, make sure to do the snorkel/falls climb excursion. It was the highlight of our trip! The tour starts with a catamaran booze cruise from the resort to the falls (30 min ride), climbing the falls (bring watershoes!), and finally snorkling at the nearby reefs. Overall, our RUI experience at Ocho Rios was great and even better since we booked the deal at a bargain.

Ok just for a short getaway

This was not my first trip to Jamaica but first time staying at the Riu. Upon arrival the staff at front desk were very courteous and friendly, but they were the only friendly staff. The restaurant and bar staff were rude, unfriendly and unprofessional. They have several restaurants on site but the food was just so-so. The beach was very dirty compared to those of other resorts I have stayed. Overall the stay was ok but could have been much better.
