The Riu Ochos Rios is a five-star Jamaican resort owned and operated by the Spanish-based Riu hotel chain. Overlooking the Caribbean Sea and surrounded by lush green woodland and gushing waterfalls, the hotel showcases the best of both worlds - open-air beachfront luxury and forested hideaways. Gleaming balconied facades overlook the on-site kids and adult swimming pools, while the inside air is rich with the signature scents of the Riu brand's Renova Spa and the decidedly upscale Sir Richard and Sir John restaurants. Five meeting rooms culminate in the 5,000-square-foot Gran Salon, making the hotel a magnet for business travelers in addition to tropical vacationers.
Key facts
  • 856 guestrooms

Neighborhood
You'll find Riu Ochos Rios on Jamaica's northern shore, some 2.5 miles from the popular resort town of Ochos Rios. The hotel has its own secluded space in Mammee Bay, with direct access to the Ochos Rios cruise terminal and the very beach made famous in the James Bond film Dr No. Dive all day long at Dolphin Cove along the coast, or watch the mighty Dunn's River Falls a few miles to the east of the hotel grounds.
Hints and tips
For those planning a romantic couple's vacation, Riu Ochos Rios includes a deluxe adults-only wing, providing access to exclusive areas of the property and facilities not available to families. These include the Sir Richard gourmet restaurant and a private check-in. Although the on-site cuisine is certifiably high-class, don’t miss out on low-key, homemade fare - the jerk hut selling pork, sausages and chicken on the beach is a visitor favorite.

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.

Great Vacay

Hotel is big and amazing. I recommend you book reservation for the restaurants as soon as possible because they get full very fast. I got tired of the buffet food within two days of my stay. The jerk hut on the beach has great chicken..check it out! The entertainment was fun..Gaston and Mini Me were great entertainers. Bartenders are really nice especially ones at the pool.

Fantastic vacation.

We spent eight days at Riu Ocho and it was a very nice and relaxing environment. The grounds and the rooms were well kept, the staff work so hard to keep this big Resort in top shape. The food was so good and plentiful, even with a fully booked period, you could always get a hot meal up to 2am. The entertainment staff kept guest engaged day to night. Drinks and Bars were easily available, you could drink in your room or go down to the bar.The long journey from the Airport was fun.I will definitely return back to this Resort even if traveling solo.

Four Fun-filled Days

The landscaping on this property is beautiful and is apparent as one enters. There was a nice mix of locals, overseas guests, singles, couples, and families. Our wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday were celebrated during our stay 8/19 - 8/23/13 and so we got a room upgrade. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable with beautiful views of the garden, pool, and ocean from the balcony. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Food was plentiful, delicious, and catered for a wide variety of tastes. The spa was ..... wow! The entertainment staff worked hard day and night. The biggest negative for me was a few people smoking in the lobby and other areas. The sea floor is stony in some areas and the parking lot is small. I had to park along the driveway. The entertainment staff should remember that there are children present as well as others who might take offence to the sometimes sexually suggestive dance moves. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and will in all likelihood visit again.

Great place, Beautiful property

Im the traveller thats always looking for places to give great reviews. The RIU is beautiful, breathtaking gardens, wide open beach, huge clean pool and comfortable rooms. However, checking in was a hassle as our attendants moved at snails pace. The staff overall was not welcoming, nobody greeted us or any other guests for that matter. The workers seemed to be just there like robots, no joy or expression of warmth. Dtails in the hotel are great, but its the people that will make the difference. SHAPE UP!!

Fantastic Stay

This was a family vacation. The kids absolutely loved the pool and the beach. The teenagers loved the beach and all the activities that they had available. Everyone loved the food they had so much variety. The kids wanted the American breakfast and they got it. Brandon and MJ loved the French toasts, went back multiple times. The adults are all from Jamaica so they wanted the native food and they did not disappoint. W had ackee and saltfish for breakfast; jerk chicken and pork for lunch and curry goat for dinner. The kids had pasta, hamburgers fried fish. If you can imagine it its at the Rui. All 15 of us well be returning in 2015. Also if you drink this is your place in your room you have white run, Appleton, vodka and something else..omg..Book this trip now you can't go wrong!

Getaway for two

When arriving, check in was quick and easy. We got up to the room and loved our view and the quality of the room. (Minus the mold in the bathtub) We enjoyed the food, but it definitely needs an upgrade of style. At night there are two buffets the rest are reservation restaurants, which are not anything special. The jerk chicken hut on the beach for lunch was AMAZING--had that everyday for lunch. The beach service was non-existent-you had to get your own drinks up at the bar there was no service at the beach or pools. (&& no adult only pools, kids everywhere even at the swim up bars) The beers were never cold :( We did the dunns river fall excursion through the hotel which was awesome. For $50 a person we took a boat to the falls, then got drinks and went snorkeling...totally worth it. We went to Cancun-Dreams Resort last year and the service there was AMAZING, Riu just did not meet that standard at all. Would go to Jamaica again, but not stay at the same resort.

Great experience

My overall experience was great. I thought the appearance of the hotel was average but the grounds were very nice. The staff overall was good. Some definitely better than others, but that's expected. The Jamaican food was very delicious, especially the jerk chicken. The American food they tried to recreate was just ok. The activities and entertainment were very enjoyable. I really enjoyed my stay and would return in the future.
