A nice hotel overall but lacked quieter facilities on an evening for those of us who do not enjoy blaring out noise! Food was good,beaches to die for and lovely pools.Plenty of sunbeds ,not the usual grab a space scenario you can sometimes find.All the staff were very accommodat

Excellent 2 week stay, friendly staff, lovely location, food and drink was great, the only down side is the whole place needs to be up dated and is starting to show its age, and the entertainment if you stay two weeks does repeat its self,

I wanted to like this hotel, It wasn't my original choice but decided to stay because it was the host hotel for a wedding I was attending. I had high expectations of the RIU brand, but felt short. I will list the positives first, that is the staff at the desk and largely at resta

I've seen some reviews grossly exaggerate certain positives/negatives of the trip. I've tried to give a levelheaded account of my experience at this hotel when staying here with a friend.

Great food - fact. There is a huge variety to choose from and this was my most enjoyable pa

The Riu was beautiful! Everything was extremely clean. The morning and evening food selection was remarkable! Lunch was the only negative about the resort. Our room was simple but clean. We were very pleased with our choice and got it at a great price.

Safe Security -- what is happening at this resort with regards to theft? Are employees actually going into the safes? or taking things in your room? Never ever have we encountered this anywhere. We don't take valuable jewellry (actually don't own any lol!) but all of our belongings are valuable to us and don't want anyone looking through our things or have them go missing!
There is NONE of that going on.

I would like to know if Ocho Rios RIU accept Amex credit cards?
Not sure on that one. But, if possible, I would avoid using credit/debit cards in the gift shop. Because there’s additional charges added for some foundation & something else, I’d have to find my receipts in order to specify. Also, bring your own sheets! Theirs felt like it had sand in it even after they were changed.

Noticed that a $280USD resort credit would be available to use during my stay, does anyone know if that actually happens or what it can be used for?
The spa and the massages are very relaxing...I did the massage at the spa location and not at the beach.

Terrible Reviews?! Since booking this resort there are so many terrible reviews. What is going on? Is it because they are closing for renovations in April and don't really care about the resort and guests anymore? I get that some people are very spoiled and want it all and I'm not one of them but I'm worried now...
Many of those bad reviews were from people that did not do their homework or had a bad flight or didn't know the resort was a 90 minute ride from the airport. The forst thing do when reading a bad review is look at how many other reviews that person had done. IF it shows 1 (one) blah, take it with a grain of salt. I have also read where some people expected to be treated like the king and Queen. ha!. Not at those prices, they should stay at a Sandels resort and pay 2x+ more. We have stayed there 6 times already. It's a Clubhotel, meaning it has the fun and games and things to do. They are going to close and renovate the resort in 2019 (around june-august) So it will be even better. The deluxe side is nicer then the standard room side, the jr.suites are a tad larger on the Deluxe side. So relax and just enjoy your vacation. IF you happen to see where a guest left dirty dishes on the beach.. why get all upset, your in Jamaica, relax just enjoy the good things. Hope that helps and have a great trip.
