My husband and I stayed at the RIU OCHO RIOS from June 7-14, 2014. Overall we had a great experience. The hotel is clean and the staff were friendly. The Entertainment crew worked very hard to keep us entertained at night. The Jerk Chicken Hut on the beach was AMAZING!!!!!! We did the Dolphin excursion, the Dunnes River Falls hike and our favorite the 9 Mile Bob Marley Tour. DO THE 9 MILE BOB MARLEY TOUR. AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!!!!
CONS......NOT VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN friendly at all. We are Vegan but knew we would have difficulty maintaing our diet when in Jamaica. There were very few non salad choices. RIU needs to improve upon this. More nightlife was needed after dark. We didn't want to spend 30 dollars on a cab to a place a mile down the road. Alarm clocks were needed in the rooms. Majority of the time we had NO CLUE what time it was. Lastly the dinner reservation line was ALWAYS 10 people deep. They would only have 1 person taking reservations. This took way to long.
