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.

Amazing Honeymoon!

Everything was amazing from the beginning to end of our stay! Great beach and food. Jerk chicken on the beach was out of this world. Staff was friendly and room was neat and didn't smell. The only this that I was disappointed about was they had no transportation to Margaritaville.

RIU OCHO RIOS-JAMMIN

The room we book as a Ocean front wasnt really ocean front. We were lcated above entertiment hall and it was too noisy in the evening. Managment really dosnt know what means ocean front room! Room was clean and nice. Service and people are friendly oriented but service in the restaurants are slow sometimes and dont pay attention on all corners where you sit. You have to get table easy to get their attention. Overal 3 star resort.

Poor experiece

When you book your vacation at a Riu hotel that is supposed to be 5 star you have big expectations. These were not met. Starting with the hotel installations it is an old building with alot of bugs and mosquitos unconfortable mattresses, with an old fashioned look including a big boxy 90s television, considering the traffic of people they have you would think they would have remmodeled but they didnt. The food was the second disgrace my family and I came across theyre basically dealing with massive amounts of people with low quality food cooked in bulk. The fruits were full of mosquitoes and if you dare to try them they have no flavor they had a variety of meats and carbs that werw very poor in flavor and presentation as well. One of the restaurants we visited had so much humidity concentrated in the carpet that we had to leave. The drinks served were all national including the alcoholic beverages the quality was extremely poor. They had no real lemons to make your drinks either. The only good thing i can say is that the sheets were clean and the ocean was blue because everything else lacked in quality. The staff would practically run you down in the lobby with their carts full of towels and the same in the buffet area with their carts full of food. There was only one bathroom for about 6 restaurants plus the lobby, it was always clean, but you would have to walk a longggg longgg way during dinner if you were to use it. The beach chairs were deteriorated and uncomfortable they had a flimsy fabric that would not stretch so you would feel the plastic of the chairs on your back. I could not believe this place was classified to be called a Riu and much less be awarded 5 stars. Also the ride to the hotel from the montego bay airport is about 1hr40 min.

Cheap Get Away

During my trip, it rained for three days. The trip would have been better if the hotel had more entertainment. I did however enjoy the adult only portion of the hotel.

Bring games and entertainment for yourself if there is rain in the forecast. If you are traveling without children, you should definitely stay in the adult only side of the hotel.

Should of Stayed Longer!

When we got to the hotel, the staff instantly welcomed us, and they thanked us for coming. Each employee had a smile on her or her face. The receptionist was quick to get us our rooms. The beach was great, and the food was fantastic. Our rooms were also in tip-top shape. I was EXTREMELY impressed by how clean the employees kept the resort. The restrooms were spotless, and someone was always picking up cups on the beach. The day entertainment was fantastic. The leader of the entertainment group, Pim, did a great job getting the guest involved. Day activities included water polo, sand volleyball, and "American Gladiators." Every night Riu Ocho Rios had a different type of nightly entertainment. Some of which included a Michael Jackson Show and Colombian Dancers. My only regret is I didn't stay longer!!
