This Riu Resort lies in the central part of the north coast of Jamaica. The beaches are covered with palm trees and are the perfect place to enjoy the Jamaican experience.
This resort has 856 guest rooms. The standard (double) rooms will be what you would expect at a nice Jamaica hotel. The Jr Suite has a step down to a sitting area and a larger bath with a multiple jet shower. The suites are very roomy with a living room you could entertain in, a very large balcony, and bath area about the size of the bedroom with a Jacuzzi between the two.
There are several dining options from 5-star food and service (with reservations – no additional cost), a large buffet area, snacks at the sports bar and a pizza shop open almost all the time.
I would rate the condition of this property overall at a 9 for a family resort of this size. I recommend the Riu Resort in Ocho Rios to my past cruise clients that are looking for an all-inclusive land package. Unless my “family” clients are looking for water park type swimming pools with slides and a lazy river, I will always make this Riu an option. It is also great for groups and large wedding parties.
Currently I am quoting a package to the Riu for a couple leaving on May 24th for a 5 night stay in an ocean front Jr. Suite. The quote includes roundtrip air from Orlando, transfers to and from the resort, the 5 night all-inclusive stay, and vacation protection including a "cancel for any reason" policy. The total trip quote is $2,035, which is an outstanding deal for this air and resort package.
Please allow me the opportunity to supply you with a quote on this great property.
