Owner description: Situated in the heart of Jamaica’s popular tourist destination – Ocho Rios, just minutes away from the Cruise Ship Pier, Island Village offers the perfect mix of retail and entertainment facilities all in one convenient stop. With its picturesque open air setting incorporating natural spring lagoons and beautiful flowering trees, this complex has the remarkable feeling of being almost at “One With Nature”. It manages to recreate the ambiance of a picturesque Caribbean village setting, yet at the same time housing retail and entertainment facilities. Island Village is located on the beach and stays true to its tropical location, vibrant gardens, scenic boardwalk and water features for a relaxed shopping experience. Island Village gives new dimensions to the visitor experience and has completely transformed the landscape of this popular resort community.

“Too much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

This is where Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville is located which is a very fun spot. The bar tenders are all very nice and helpful.

“All I have to Say is MARGARITAVILLE!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2011

This is where Margaritaville is located. We went to dinner there one evening and it was pretty slow. There were some kids playing on the water slide and pool, but we really didn't see the big attraction. We talked to the bartender and he told us that the night to be there is on Monday nights because that is resort night. We went, and at about 9:30 or 10:00 it really got hoppin'. It was a good time, drinks were really expensive, $16 for a whale bone plastic drink glass, but it was still a great time!

“Shopping & more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

Loved the shopping experience here. No one forcing the goods onto you. If you do not wish to be harassed I would strongly suggest the Island village as a necessary shopping venue.

“shoppers delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

The village carries the same basic merchandise that any of the cruise ports cary, but it is in a more peaceful setting. I found it clean and inviting.
