“Island Village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This shopping center in Ocho Rios has an excellent variety of shops. Blue Mt. coffee, rum, and souvenirs are featured in most stores. All is duty free. There are also several jewelry stores.

“Out side our villa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Love this quaint little shopping area. Each day we were there, it was very quiet. The shops were more upscale than the market but it had reasonable prices.

“Could be really good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

On day of visit no one open and it was obvious that most had closed down. So we ended up at jimmy buffets restaurant, which made the visit. It's a shame that the place was not open as it has great potential

“Not worth your time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We wanted to venture out of our resort to do a little shopping and see the town. I had high hopes because we used to live in St. Thomas where the shopping is great. We were disappointed to find that many of the shops were closed. Those that were open were full of workers that harassed us constantly while we were in the stores. They offered us drugs from right behind the check out counter. The stuff in the shops was the same that we saw in the gift shop at the resort. The one mistake I made while in Ocho Rios was ever leaving the grounds at Jamaica Inn. Not worth the time or taxi fare. Don't bother.

“Not worth the visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Has gone down hill in recent times. Only worth a visit when a cruise ship if shopping is your deal is in and then full of very loud and arrogant visitors for a few hours. Needs to be upgraded and quick or it will close
