Amazing night at Bamboo blu for my birthday. And then back again a few days later for lunch. The service was great and the staff friendly. It is a little expensive for what it is and i think discounts should be given to those who have a beach pass and staying on Mammee Bay Estate but the food was very... More

This is a tourist trap!! And i fell right into it. 😕. This is the beach that the locals send the cruise people to. Its set up specifically for cruisers. While they offer sketchy free wifi, they played commercial reggae, and didnt feel very authentic. I could have gone to a beach in Miami that played reggae and experienced the... More

A place to relax and just enjoy the Caribbean sea, sun and sand. I had a great server, Osheen i believe was her name. The food was ok, not to cry for but was good, great atmosphere, has the RIU hotel is close to the restaurant.

I was in Ocho Rios visiting a friend on March 24th and she insisted that we stop by her favorite restaurant in the area. This restaurant had one of the best views and ambiance I have ever seen in the Caribbean, excellent food, courteous and friendly staff and the cocktails were amazing. I cant wait to visit again and encourage... More

Our driver brought us here for a quick beach stop. They have a bar and food and the water was calm and warm and beautiful. The beach only had about 20 people on the day we went so it very relaxing. They have cabanas and chairs or you can just lay in the beach like we did.

If you want to get off the resort and find a more locals feel type beach, yet enjoy a nice bar and restaurant as well as some water activities, this is a great spot. It is kind of tricky to find, but well worth the effort. After a few days of looking at the same people and scenery, even the... More
