What a gem of a hotel!
The room was perfectly adequate though the showers were irregular sometimes.
Each room overlooks the beach and the beach and sea, sometimes, comes right up to the building. The little bay has trees as a back round and looks like Treasure Island.
While the hotel is north facing, the pier allows sunbathing all day long.
It is quite possible to walk into Ocho Rios but taxis are always available and not expensive.
Ocho Rios is a real bustling town, full of local activity. Always something to see.
Cruise ships discharging passengers swamp the place but for only a few hours. Then it reverts back to the bustling Jamaican town that it is.
While the hotel is a basic it is good value. What makes it so recommendable though is the people who work there. Everyone was pleasant to talk to and very helpful when you need them.
I wish all hotels had staff who cared as much as those at Crystal Ripple Beach!
