“Cool Blue Hole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Thanks to Lindsey, our driver of SNL Tours for the suggestion. Remote, no crowds and better than Dunn's River. Got to climb, swim through caves and run down waterfalls. Best tour of the vacation.

“fun times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Beach was great. Crystal clear waters. Snorkeling is possible everywhere. Sailing is best in the morning with more wind that is manageable.

“Big Clean Beach and Water... full of tourists”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

This is a nice clean beach with safe waters and good watersports facilities. The entry fee is just JA$200 if you are visiting the area, which is very reasonable. However, it is main beach that several hotels and apartment complexes back onto, so it is full of tourists on sun loungers which gives it a bit of a non-descript vibe, where you could be anywhere. When they are in town, the huge cruise ships moor right in front of the beach too, so the view is not always the most picturesque. There are places to sit, buy drinks and food, showers, changing and rest rooms on offer, which are clean.

“nice beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

we loved the float out in the water, it was fun to lay out in the water. It was clean and wasn't too deep at the resort.

“Beautiful Beaches!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

I LOVED my stay in Ocho Rios. The shopping is limited, and annoying. However, the sites make up for it!
