It was a rare experience for me at Rooms on the beach. The moderately-priced hotel provided more than I bargained for. From the smiles at the Front Desk on my arrival, I knew I was going to have fun. I checked into the Junior Suite and found it neat and decent. My experience at the Rooms On The Beach is one I will love to repeat again and again

Ok, so I'm writing this review months later because I forgot to until now but I don't want anyone else to make the same mistake my friends and I did. We're college students from America and wanted to go to Jamaica for Spring break and stay somewhere relatively cheap so we booked here.
If this hotel were in America, it would be one thing, but Jamaica is a 3RD WORLD COUNTRY and is dangerous if you're not in somewhere that's safe. This place certainly didn't seem to be. It doesn't look like it does in the pictures, its much more dreary and over-run by locals just kind of hanging out. We were solicited drugs within 5 minutes of arriving and then every 10 minutes or so from then on. The food at the hotel is very bad and costs around $20 American dollars per meal. There were strange noises outside our hotel room in the hallway all night that sounded like some sort of wild animal.

I'm telling you to not book this hotel. We (5 college guys looking for a spring break place) aren't too awfully picky about cleanliness or whatever, but this hotel is not a good value. Everything's expensive and so sketchy. We left after a day and 1/2 and payed a ridiculous amount to book an all-inclusive resort at face price and had a great week. Also, if you're a college kid, especially don't book here if you're looking to have fun. There are absolutely no college students here, they're all at the all-inclusive places.

Rooms ocho rios is everything you need in a small hotel, location great, if you want great restaurants to fast food it's there, great staff very helpful, rooms spacious and clean, the room attendants always there to clean your room and offer clean towels we spent a part of the vacation going to the various tours and seeing the different areas of ocho rios. They do have a restaurant that offers continental breakfast not bad.
I like the idea of free internet in the rooms and wireless service in dining area and pool deck so you can keep in touch. There is a gift shop if you need snacks and lots of juices.
This you all get at a terrific value, definetly if you need a cozy place to chill and have some fun at the same time i would highly recommend rooms ocho rios, i am already planning my next vacation there.

For what you pay for, Rooms is worth it. The location is perfect and the beach super.Breakfast was a bit of a gong show but bearable.

I have stayed here a few times and it's alot more expensive than it used to be. But that is probably due to current financial climate.

If you want a nice secure room, and a good location then this would be a good pick.

Breakfast (included) Is not particually good.

The hotel resurant and bar are pricey, but there are lots of local bars and resturants that are lovely. If you stay here, obviously be prepared to eat out alot! Or get takeaways.

Best bar: Ocean eleven- very hidden. Pretty bar by the sea, nice coctails, sometimes live music.
Turn right from main street like you are going into Margaritaville, but keep walking down long road right to the end. Ocean eleven is on your left.

Best resturant: Moms, up by market. Ask a local for directions. lovely little resturant serving jamaican food... delicious... very good value... eat in or take away!

I Don't tend to use the hotel apart from the room. But there is a gym, small pool, internet access, washing rooms (work sometimes) lots of sunbeds.

Cleaning staff are nice and do a v.good job.

The hotel really is exactly what it says "Room on the beach" Beach is beautiful... there is a cruise ship nearly every day, sometimes 2. But I quite like watching them come and go. Beautiful beautiful sunsets!

There is lots to do in and around the town, And lots of trips easily available.

Outside hotel people approach you lots, sometimes just for a chat and often to sell you something. A good firm "no thank you" should do the trick. I feel happy to go out on my own in Ocho Rios and in other parts of Jamaica. People are generally very friendly. Speaking from personal experience only I see more trouble on a single night out in my hometown, than I have ever seen in Jamaica!

One other tip... make sure you buy a brolly and stick it in your room. When it rains... it really rains and you could end up being stuck in your room... unless you like getting wet that is!
