My husband and I were so looking forward to a return visit to the Riu Ocho Rios after having a wonderful time there last year. What a disappointment, especially in the food department. It went from GREAT to boring, repetitive and downright dangerous to eat!! After we were at the hotel a day and a half, my husband woke up... More

The food was extremely good and the a... More

I arranged a group of 30 to attend my wedding at Riu Ocho Rios. We arrived at the hotel and had no difficulty checking in. When my fiancée and I got to our room we were a little disappointed. We had two double beds pushed together. Others in our group got one single king bed. This wasn't a big deal.... More

My wife and I are 33 and 32 yrs. of age and we just returned from a 5 night/ 6 day stay. We are both well-traveled and this is our third all-inclusive stay in the last year, first time ever at a RIU. First off, we did not get a private transfer from the airport so it was a fairly... More

This place stinks! Every night, a ton of garbage would wash up on the beach and hotel staff cleaned it up the next morning, so watch out if you want to take a moon lit stroll on the beach like my wife and I did. There are tons of guys peddling weed on the beach aswell. If you spilt even... More
