Riu Ocho Rios Review:

A huge all inclsuive resort for singles, couples, and families. If you expect a five star resort, you will be disappointed. Otherwise, the buildings, grounds, service and food are impressive.

Like most other Riu resorts, the biggest complaint is the need to line up each morning at the front desk to get a reservation at the specialty restaurants for that evening. If you don’t want to get up early, you could try showing up at the restaurants to see if there are open tables. Otherwise, the buffets have a wide selection of good options with special theme nights.
