Owner description: Situated in the heart of Jamaica’s popular tourist destination – Ocho Rios, just minutes away from the Cruise Ship Pier, Island Village offers the perfect mix of retail and entertainment facilities all in one convenient stop. With its picturesque open air setting incorporating natural spring lagoons and beautiful flowering trees, this complex has the remarkable feeling of being almost at “One With Nature”. It manages to recreate the ambiance of a picturesque Caribbean village setting, yet at the same time housing retail and entertainment facilities. Island Village is located on the beach and stays true to its tropical location, vibrant gardens, scenic boardwalk and water features for a relaxed shopping experience. Island Village gives new dimensions to the visitor experience and has completely transformed the landscape of this popular resort community.

“So cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Shopping , swimming all in one day.You can see some big cruise ships on some days and do not forget Margaritaville.
If you want to swim you need to get a wrist band from Margaritaville.The beach is for customers only and there are security guards with dogs patroling the beach.You can get sea shells at a good price but bargain.We got a tiger strips shell for 15.00 they were asking 25.00.

“Shopping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

There were a lot of shops to purchase gifts anywhere from up-to- date clothing to souvenirs. I always purchase clothing and souvenirs like tee shirts, Jamican spices, or the latest perfumes fragrance in stores for friends and family. I also like to eat at some of the restaurants in the Island Village, while listening to Jamaican music over looking the beautiful crystal clear waters.
