    Great resort

    Traveled with my family (including 2 kids ages 3 and 6). Lots of things to do on the resort for kids and adults. Kids loved the splash park and Riuland. Resort is located very close to Dunns River Falls. Staff were friendly and very helpful. We were there when hurricane Beryl hit and the resort had plans in place to ensure our safety. Overall we had a great vacation and definitely recommend this hotel.

    I always enjoy RIU Ochi

    Although RIU Ochi is far from the airport, once I arrive at the resort it is all worth it. Good variety of food, family friendly, near excursions, options for activities, and all at an affordable price. I'm a travel agent and I recommend this resort to my clients because I've experienced it for myself.

    Return visit

    Decided to return after our first visit 7years ago. Wow the refurbishment has changed to hotel so much, for the best though. We had a room just above reception, it looked out over the pool, we good see the sea too. Rooms are lovely and fresh and cleaned every day, we try and do our bit for the environment and reuse our towels, but the staff changed them all the time. Mini bar was always well stocked. We ate in the buffet most evenings, we did try the Chinese, steak and Italian. All were very nice, I liked the buffet in the Italian. The main buffet had such a good choice of food, I love all the fresh fruit. We spent our days on the beach up near the quiet pool, we found it got the sun longer. I wondered down to the jerk chicken hut most days for lunch, this is delightful. We also ate from the sports bar too, in the heat a sandwich is enough for me sometimes. The drinks are so good at all bars, in the main bar they work so hard of an evening, please remember your manners and appreciate these girls and guys. The cocktails are really good, they will make you special ones if they have the ingredients. Water is available at the end of the bar. We used our own cups during the day, The entertainment day team work hard getting people involved, the evening entertainment is very good. We loved the party nights too, the silent disco is my absolute favourite night. We will be back.
