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.

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.

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.
