This is a comfortable, affordable spot to stay in Ocho Rios. If you have business in the area and do not need a room on the beach, this is a great place. It is away from the strip, on a steep hill. This location gives you a nice view of everything, and an excellent opportunity to increase your activity, if you can and/or desire. There are usually one or two cab drivers in the lobby if you need them. Bus station (Knutsford) and the Jerk Center are a quick walk down the hill or a US$5 cab ride up or down.
If you do need to go to the beach, there is a free van that will take you there.
* The front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating, but seemed to have some challenges with their telephone systems at times.
* The room was clean,but not spotless!! The housekeeper came late our first day and did not sweep or mop until the following morning...but dusted, spread beds and changed towels. The remote on the TV was not functional at first. Staff addressed it quickly. Unfortunately, many of the channels are not available.
* Wifi service is very poor and unreliable
* Grounds are beautiful. Pool with swim up bar is nice, but seemed underutilized (pool closed at 5PM)
* Restaurant (June Plum) serves breakfast each AM ( included with stay), with choices of traditional specialties or an omelet made to order. I did not eat there for lunch or dinner, it may have be available. In general, we sought meals off premises as there were so many choices close by.
Overall, this is a very nice place. Everyone was very accommodating. It was very convenient. Although I may prefer stay in an all inclusive beach front on my next visit, I was comfortable there. I did not want to leave. I would return to the Mystic Ridge Resort, without reservation!! (pardon the pun)
