Second trip to Jamaica and will return!
We took our kids (8 and 10) this past March break to Rui Ocho Rios . Our booking was for a regular room (2 queen beds), garden/mountain view and were upgraded to a family (1 double, 1 king) with partial ocean view at no additional charge. Our room was very clean, comfortable beds, no AC problems, no small critters or foul smells whatsoever. The overall hotel feal was a 4*, with exellent service, and friendly staff. anywhere you went on the property, someone was cleaning something.....Their was a large variety of food @ every restaurant. We would have like to have more options in the "a la carte" bookings, they get full very fast and we only managed to get into 2 out of 4. The kids LOVED the entertainment (riu club), music and the shows. I must say that this Rui's night life / shows are the best I have seen in the past few years. The beach was a little crowded, but you could still find empty chairs.
Our main excursion was the Dunn's River Falls/ catamaran boat ride with snorkling, an absolute must! The climb is challanging for adults, if children are taken, I suggest taking the stairs to the top. This detail was ommited when we purchased the excursion..... The kids enjoyed the snorkling the most, trying to be the first to find nemo.
All in all, I would go back to this location no problem. I'm recommending to everyone I talk to!
