Lovely holiday with the family

We arrived at 9pm after a long 10hr flight and another 95 minutes ride on coach.We were offered fruit juices which was great however checkin was very disorganised.We had to be filling forms out in the night while we are very tired, these forms were given to us in a package on the coach but no one told us about them as we could have done them at that point .We got our keys and realised that the room was a very long walk away so we got some food and went to bed..Up by 7 to explore and our holidays really started ..Everything was very good, the omellets very devine my kids love them, ackee and saltfish my favourite let's say the smoothies are brilliant, there is something for everyone here..alot of Caribbean food for me (wow) as we heard Riu is a Spanish hotel and won't cater for Caribbean..lobsters in abundance and good size fry fish and bammy (wow) the steak house was good aswell..Entertainment good,beach party good ,optics in room top up regularly. Kids love the bigga orange.The room was immaculate and towells change everyday..had a problem with blocked toilet but was fixed promptly after reporting it.It was 35 US return to Ocho Rios if u need gifts and stuff to bring home however walk by the gate and get it for a dollar US to town and vice versa.Go to Taj maha..its shopping without the hassle,The drinks at the hotel was lovely.. We had a very good holiday at Riu ocho Rios.

The best thing about my stay was...

The different varieties of food and not have to worry about anything also my kids were safe going around on their own.

FIRST TIME AT RIU

My husband and I liked the hotel because of its locality, it was easy to visit family and friends. However, on the first day of arrival we got to our room after checking in at 4pm and when we got to our room, it was was still being cleaned. We were not keen on the food as it was very repetitive, and lacked flavour and as we look Jamaican food was very disappointed with the taste, especially the jerk centre. There should be a variety of milk as I am lactose intolerance and could not have anything with cows milk. The staff were very friendly. On several occasions we returned to our room after 4pm and could not have our after nap as the room was cleaned. We would still go back

First time in jamaica

This is a very good hotel. The staff are the best in the industry I have encountered in my travels on holiday. Namely terryann at breakfast and jermaine who works the dinner shift at the buffet. My only reason I didn't rate this place a 10 is wifi and top shelf liquor. They need to at least have a liquor store on site since top shelf liquor is not included or available in part of your all inclusive package. The wifi needs to be improved since in this age of technology it's now a necessity not a luxury. Overall I would say go there stay there. I will return.

The best thing about my stay was...

The staff is exceptional

Recommended!

1st time at this hotel and i must say i wasn't disappointed. unfortunately the gym facilities are questionable and the wifi access in this day and age should be much better, but there are so many good things about this hotel that it doesn't even matter. The staff are very helpful, great variety of food, i would recommend any of the double rooms, with sea view as the views are amazing! This is a great hotel if your looking for an all inclusive holiday.

The best thing about my stay was...

When they say all inclusive, they mean it.
