Resort Recommendations

Planning a trip to Jamaica spring 2014. We have family that lives in Ocho Rios and would like to be close to visit as much as possible. We will then have a 12 month old and a 3 year old. We are looking for a family resort close to Ocho Rios where we could also possibly have our family get day / night passes as well. Food, cleanliness and accommodations for the children are most important to us.

We have stayed at SSJG, RIU OR, Fishermans Point, Sandcastles, Silver Seas, Gran Bahia Runaway Bay, RIU MB and Royal Decameron MB. (the smaller hotels when we had no kids).

We would probably only consider staying at RIU OR again out of the above resorts/hotels but I have been reading the reviews and read a lot about cockroaches and other bad reviews. We were last there in 2008 and had different priorities then.

We have stayed at SSJG 2 times but the last time we were not impressed has it gotten any better?

Not too much left to pick from.

@KC, I would suggest going with the Riu, both for Value and the convenience of your family visiting. Beaches Boscobel is located 30 mins to the east of Ocho Rios.

Try looking at the Jamaica Inn. Very well rated and centrally located in Ocho Rios.

Beaches is a great family friendly resort, we have done both Beaches on the south side of the island.
