Rooms Ocho Rios
Ranked #20 of 35 Hotels in Ocho Rios
Reviewed 5 February 2009

We spent an anniversary week at Rooms on the Beach, Ocho Rios and had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable. Our room with balcony looking onto the beach was delighful. The hotel is not all inclusive so it is best for those that like to do their own thing as far as activities and meals are concerned. However, the included morning continental breakfast is plenty and the hotel restaurant does have a full menu if desired. Ocho Rios is a narrow busy town between the hills and the bay, and access to local shops and many restaurants is right behind the hotel, while the clean public beach is right out the front door. Even with the close proximity to the town we felt very secure because of the restricted access to the hotel grounds and constant monitoring of security personell. An unexpected touch was the special anniversary floral decorations in the room and a bottle of bubbly donated by the staff for the celebration of our 50th. It was our first visit to Ocho Rios and the "Rooms" and we look forward to our next trip to take more of the adventure trips available through the local organizers.

We just returned from a week at Rooms in Ocho Rios, overall was a good experience. We were a little concerned when we left for Jamaica because of some of the reviews we had read, When we arrived our room was ready & we were pleasantly suprised by the room. 2nd floor with balcony room was clean & pleasant we immediatly unpacked& checked out safe etc. had a problem with TV & safe,but called front desk they sent a person up & showed us the trick to the TV & got the safe unlocked all within 15 minutes. we were impressed. Room was always cleaned daily & we had fresh towels every day(previous reviews had problems with towels)One day they were out of beach towels but wasn't a big deal. If you looked close rooms were a little weathered but were kept up & clean. The staff took care of our every request & were always very friendly. Continental beakfast wasn't much toast & juice,just went a few times. Location of Rooms is probably the best in town,handy to everytnhing.While not a 5 star accomodation Rooms worked well for us. I don't believe they were full while we were there it was a little slow for business. Not much for restaurant or bar service nothing on the beach you had to go get it your self,so we ended up using a cooler & bringing our own.Longer were provided & pool was kept up. No cockroaches or bug problems,we did notice them spraying outside of the motel a couple of times we assumed for insects & crawlies. We did tip the maids a few bucks daily(usually 3 bucks) they were always friendly & took care of anything we needed.Didn't use the restaurant much did ordered breakfast from menu one day was good very small portions though.Overall good experience for us.

We stayed in Rooms Ocho Rios from 12/22 through 12/25. The hotel facilities are decent, but nothing special. It is located in the heart of Ochi so there is always a lot of activity. Our first room had a water leak, but the manager promptly moved us to a better room. The manager was very polite and escorted us to the new room personally. The bar staff was friendly and the front desk clerks were a little dry. The restaurant food is overpriced and not good at all. The continental breakfast is really a waste so don't bother getting up. It is usually some sweet breads and juice and is always put out late. The beach doesn't look anything like the pictures and the water is average. Maybe because of the ships coming in nearby.

The location of the hotel is probably the best feature of the hotel. It is close to Dunn's Falls, other area attractions, shopping and restaurants. If you want to be in the center of everything this is a good place to stay. We really don't spend a lot of time in the hotel when we travel so as long as the room is clean we're good. This isn't the place to stay if you like lounging at the hotel because the service isn't that great and the accommodations are average. Stay here if you want to have extra money for excursions and shopping!

The Rooms On The Beach...... Ocho Ri'os ,Jamaica " Totally Amazing"

Date January 4-12 , 2009

I had my first visit to The Rooms On The Beach located in Ocho Rios Jamaica.

Where to start! well lets start with amazement. because of the rating the travel agent had given to the hotel , being honest I really was not expecting alot from this place.

I vwant to start off with my experience with the front desk staff , top notch truly top notch, they were so friendly , courteous and very professional on all levels.

This being my first visit to the area I had a lot of questions for them , they provided detailed answers which addressed and resolved all of my questions ( very knowledgeable).

The staff provided us with assistance to our room , which was beautiful , spacious and clean with a great view of the ocean "breath taking.". I can honestly say the staff and management goes above and beyond their call of duty.

They also provided a great breakfast.

I would rate this experience 8 out of 10 , I do plan on visiting this hotel later on in the year.

Regards

We just got back from a wonderful holiday at Rooms on The Beach. The rooms were immaculate, the service was excellent & the staff were very friendly & helpful. There was nothing that was too much of a problem for them. As they say in Jamaica 'No problem, man'.

We wanted to visit Negril to see the famous seven miles of beach. Ms Burgess, the manager, was extremely helpful in arranging for us to spend a couple of day at Rooms On The Beach in Negril at no extra charge

We have fallen in love with Rooms on the Beach & look forward to coming back next year.

Spent xmas 2008 at Rooms on the beach. Pleasantly surprised! very clean rooms, great beach [ took a walk every morning]. It was beautiful!, sad to leave actually!!. Walking distance from main plaza - NB: there is a shortcut via the beach otherwise you have to walk all the way around ,which is a bit of a drag.

On my travels round Ochi I met a great local guide called Mascino - he was fab and friendly and very professional.There are alot of sharks and conmen in Ochi [ par for the course anywhere in the worlld! ] but he is one of the good guys - trust me!!! - I would recommend him anyday! - he can be reached on 0018762936325 - give him a shout before you arrive and he will make sure you have every thing you need! . Local gift shops are a rip off - but if you ask Mascino to get you something he will get it much cheaper and of the same or better quality ok! He will also take you to "Fishermans bay" to eat a range of fresh fish and Lobster - oh my gosh!! the fish dishes were wonderful!!!

Ochi is a wonderful place and the best time to visit is probably between Feb and April [ Easter preferably]

If you have a good local guide you will enjoy a very safe,wonderful and happy time in Ochi.

Peace and Love
