We stayed at the RIU Ochos Rios for the last 2 weeks of May 2008. We flew via Thomson, no problems except hotel transfer bus was a heap! We didn't stop during the 2 hour journey, probably because the mini-bus was so slow and could hardly get up the hills. Check-in was smooth. We were initially put in ground floor... More

We stayed at the RIU from 8/9/08-8/16/08 and had a wonderful time! The resort is beautiful, the pools and beach are great. There were always enough chairs in either location no matter what time we came down. There are quite a few locals on the beach that try to sell a variety of items including jet ski rides--several trying to... More

I stayed at the Riu Ocho Rios between Aug. 4th - 11th, 2008. I travelled with a group of about 20 people for a wedding. We booked through Sunquest Vacations and when we arrived the hotel employees were waiting for us with our room keys and locks for our room safes. We stayed in the Junior Suite and had a... More

Just spent 2 weeks here and have been to several Riu's. To be honest I think this is the worst. First off (not hotels fault) but Jamaica Montego Bay airport is simply the worst airport I have ever been to. This alone would stop me going back. We Qued for 2 hours getting in and almost 2 hours getting out,... More

We just returned from a stay at the Riu Ocho Rios. Here is what I noted on our stay: Only about 70% of the staff were actually friendly and helpful Don't bother buying a phone card to take with you. I did and found out when we got there that the only pre-paid phone card that will work from their... More

The reservation process was exceptional. I used NWA World Vacations and the young lady that answered the phone was a great help. She stayed on the phone with me for a good portion of an hour to ensure she answered every question with the upmost of professionalism and politeness. My family and I have travelled to several locations around the... More

I recently visited and was married at the Riu Clubhotel Ocho Rios (5/18/08-5/24/08). We had 45 friends and family staying with us at the Riu for the occasion. When planning our destination wedding we had considered many resorts and were excited by what the Riu had to offer. We, like many others, consulted Trip Advisor and found several complaints about...

I stayed at the Riu from July 23, 2008 to July 29, 2008. It is one of the nicest resorts I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The staff is wonderful and full of life. They also want to make sure that you are enjoying your stay there as well. Our room was beautiful. We stayed in the... More
