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.

“A lot to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

After your experience at Dunn's River Falls,Mystic Mountain or Dolphin Cove just take a 5mins stroll to Island Village. There you will be able do duty free shopping,souvenirs,gifts,and then relax at the famous Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville and enjoy the sunshine on the sands or let the Bartender surprise you with a special drink.

“Most of it was out of business”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Guess it is only open when cruise ships are in town, but even then most of it was out of business. Policeman warned us against locals (nice huh, not we are working to make this a better place, but hey the locals can kill you type of talk).

“ANYBODY THERE????”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

When no ships are docked at Ocho Rios the Island Village is almost a Ghost Town. The Margaritaville is open and is a BLAST very good food and nice beach. The Water Slide that dumps into the pool at the bar is always fun.

“I love shopping!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

They called us a cab one day, since they use a particular service, and a man came and picked us up and took us to town to shop. We were told that he would drop us off and pick us up at an agreed upon time and we would pay him when he dropped us off back at the resort. It worked out exactly like that! He was very polite, personable, prompt. Not a problem at all!
