Ocho Rios, Jamaica is home to many world-renowned attractions such as Mystic Mountain, Dolphin Cove, Blue Hole, and the breathtaking Dunn’s River Falls. While there’s no doubt there is plenty to do and see, picking one of the numerous resorts to stay at can be difficult Here are some of the best Ocho Rios has to offer.
Beaches Ocho Rios This resort has something for everyone in the family. From a huge action-adventure waterpark to championship golf for the whole family, look no further than Beaches Ocho Rios all-inclusive resort. Twenty-two acres of lush tropical gardens, a gorgeous private white-sand beach, seven gourmet restaurants, five fantastic swimming pools, a dedicated scuba practice pool, and an entire ocean of watersports are just a few of the places & things to explore.
Hermosa Cove The crown jewel of this lovingly built and appointed boutique hotel has to be the Cottonwood Treehouse, a whimsical one-bedroom cottage lofted above the surrounding tropical gardens. But the truth is that most of the accommodations at Hermosa Cove have a storybook quality about them, including the gingerbread Calabash House, the stone-faced, three-story Nautilus House, and a variety of villas with their own private pools.
Moon Palace Jamaica The promise of an “awe-inclusive” experience is met at least in part at the Moon Palace with an exciting FlowRider wave simulator for surfing and bodyboarding action. Beyond that, the resort features a spa, nightclub, kids’ playroom, an arcade and gaming center, and the usual assortment of included waterspout options — kayaking, paddle boarding, etc. In-room minibars are refreshed daily, and the all-inclusive package includes 24-hour room service and dining at a half-dozen restaurants.
Riu Ocho Rios Not only does the Riu boast a free-flowing booze bar in each room, but the hotel also has cruise ship-style 24-hour all-inclusive dining, including room service. Family-friendly offerings include the Splash Water World water park, a half dozen pools, everyday entertainment, a playground, and kids clubs.
Sandals Royal Plantation An intimate all-butler beach resort of just 74 ocean view suites is tucked into a magnificent coral bluff. You can spend your days lazing by the pool with cool libations delivered right to you by a beach butler. Tee off at nearby Sandals Golf & Country Club, followed by a spot of afternoon tea on the terrace. Renowned for unmatched attention to detail, this enclave of retro-chic sophistication showcases roaming peacocks and manicured lawns. This historic adults-only resort has long been a favorite hideaway for the international jet set and literary elite. Today, exquisite original furnishings and new innovations like Jamaica’s only champagne and caviar bar are what make Sandals Royal Plantation one of Ocho Rios’ best all-inclusive resorts.
