riu hotel ochos rios, nice location, beach. needs a few upgrades. this is mainly for younger people, too much walking for the elderly, staff were great, food was good,anything people needed it was there.rooms were clean, only thing missing on bar is Canadian whiskey.
This was an excellent hotel however, as mentioned by others it definitely is in need of a refresh. The people, the food, the service was excellent. The entertainment is OK and the team really make an effort to put on a good show however, it...More
Traveled to this resort in April with 42 family/friends. We picked Jamaica because of our previous travel there and absolutely loved it. If you're deciding which island to vacation at, look no further. I've been to many of them and Jamaica is by far my...More
This Riu is very nice. Although it is huge, it doesn’t feel that way when you are making your way around the resort. We were upgraded to the VIP side when we arrived which was a great surprise! Check in was supposed to be a...More

Well, Congrats on winning the trip. You should should have a great time. It's a 90 minute ride from the airport to the resort. Although I usually travel with AAVacations, I have the choice of transportation. Although a private car will get you there faster and not stop at any other resorts to drop off guests, The total cost was unrealistic so we usually just book transfer to an from on a van/bus. I think the cost was around $30 each US Dollars. You can check web pages for transportation from the airport to the resort to get an idea of the costs, you should see both options, private car and bus.
We will be there again in August, our 5th trip. I think you will have a great time, if you read the reviews the resort is fine. Its actually a Riu Clubhotel, meaning its more of a fun environment I dont want to say a party resort but that have entertainment going on to join in and just have fun. I will say, if you are expecting a 5 star resort that waits on you hand and foot and you expect to be treated like the king and queen, you will not like this resort at all. Its a big resort 800+ rooms I have stayed at the Riu Cancun, Ocho Rios is not as fancy and there is no large nightclubs and shops within walking distance like Cancun. But it's a nice relaxing place, great beach, pools lots of sun lounges. Anyway read the reviews, pretty much ignore the ones from the snooty people that expect the staff to bow down to them. Its Jamaica! Relax, ignore the little issues, just have fun. "ya mon" Hope that helps!
