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.

“Shopping Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

Island village is built on the side of the harbour where the cruise ships moor. It's trendy touristy shops sell mostly the same thing, clothes/local coffee/suveniors etc but at prices that are expensive.

“good shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

apart from the hustling from guys on the street to harassment from the bus drivers we made it to the plaza. it was well kept and the stores really seems busy and alive with the crew ship passengers. the little water falls in the middle of the mall to the small natural water falls that runs into a mini lake around the mall which had fishes, turtles and a mother duck and her babies was a real beauty.
not a bad way to spend 2 hours .

ps. avoid the beach the hustlers will get u

“Good place for souvenirs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

We had time for a quick stop here after our tour. It was clean and nice and we found the stores had a great variety of souvenirs, including wood carved Jamaican items and t-shirts. Also bought coffee and rum cake. You can probably find anything you need here.
