    Our honeymoon 40 years in the making!

    The hotel, the suite we stayed in, the restaurants, the beach, and especially the staff. We could not be more pleased with our time there! We were looking for a place where we could relax, and the Hotel RIU in Ocho Rios is that place! The hardest decision we had to make was what was the best spot on the beach, and where we were going to have dinner that evening! The staff, so pleasant and helpful! They truly work hard to make sure everyone is taken care of, and have a great time during their stay! We are already talking about our return there!

    Lovely family holiday

    Just had a lovely stay at the Riu. Lovely clean room and a great size. I was surprised with how clean they keep the rooms with daily room clean and had clean towels daily. The views were breathtaking and the beach was stunning. The hotel staff are very hard working and very friendly always smiling and happy to help. The food for me wasn't the best not very hot just warm and the flies on everything. The servers are super friendly. The entertainment staff I do not know how they have so much energy! Nice and happy staff and the dancing was awesome!

    Beautiful Hotel

    I stayed at Riu Ocho Rios along with family and enjoyed every moment of it. The hotel was beautiful and always kept clean, along with breathtaking views. Staff were helpful and worked very hard throughout the days and nights. The food was fulfilling each time, however the main buffet restaurant did become repetitive at times, so would recommend trying out the other restaurants within the hotel for more variety. Overall I had an amazing experience and would definitely come here again in the near future.
