Beach at our resort was clean and well maintained although I didn't go outside of that very much as I was approached by many dodgy character's "selling items" I didn't need

Cruise ship docked in Ocho Rios for the day. The kids had a blast. Beach, lunch and shopping. Couldn't ask for a better day. A lot of restaurants had free Wifi which let us catch up on FB, emails and such. Cruise wifi way to much $$$. Love the people there 😎

He was also super organized and informative... More

Went to Ocho Rios as one of our stops during our carnival cruise in October 2014. I know my review is late but I thought I had lost a card until it fell out of my luggage while packing for another trip. When we docked I was scared of getting off the boat because of the stories I heard. I... More

What a relaxing place to stop on a cruise. Great jerk chicken in the park. Nachos were awesome at Margaritaville with plenty of entertainment. With a lot of places to shop.
