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.

“Margaritaville”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

I am usually not a "fan" of the "tourist clubs" but I will admit that Margaritaville was "crankin" on Saturday night...a lively crowd of beautiful people pulsating to the latest reggae, dancehall, hip hop, etc...not to mention great drinks...a bit pricey...but hey, you only live once...Fun!

“Shopping shouldn't be hard”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

I don't know if a lot of stores were closed because there were no cruise ships in port or what but several stores that had cute stuff in the windows were closed. It was Saturday afternoon. ??? I don't get it.
