My wife and I were guests at the Riu Ochos Rios for a destination wedding in early Decemeber. Overall the resort was nice with a good number of activities and space. Our room was nice and spacious and the staff kept it clean throughout the stay. The buffet food was actually the best I've had when it comes to all inclusives, but the on site restaurants were not that impressive. The bar-tending also wasn't very consistent as some staffers were much better than others.
The resort is in a great location in Ochos Rios and we were able to easily venture off and participate a numerous off site activities. Overall this was a great stay for our first time in Jamaica.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you plan on buying duty free liquor please do so at the airport. We were suckered by numerous people and vendors into buying alcohol on the island and packing it in our bags because they said the airport was more expensive. In reality the airport had a better selection, cheaper or the same prices and was also duty free and they also know the correct limit of how much you can carry duty free. On the island we were told we could pack 3 bottles each person duty free but the custom's agent back stateside showed us the document where it says 2 BOTTLES duty free.
