Backed by thick rainforest and fronted by a pristine beach, the ClubHotel Riu ocho Rios is every inch the tropical retreat.The location is the big talking point at this place. Not only is the property set in tropical gardens, it’s pulled up against the sands of Ocho Rios Beach. What’s more, the centre of town is less than a ten-minute drive away.The hotel’s facilities are just as impressive. Two large swimming pools take a central spot, and one comes with a built-in whirlpool. And, with two swim-up bars completing the scene, you don’t have to go far for a cocktail.
Opened in 2005, this family-friendly beach hotel comprises a total of 856 rooms. Amongst the facilities count a foyer with a 24-hour reception desk, a safe and a currency exchange bureau in addition to a selection of shops, a hairdressing salon, a nightclub, a theatre hall, a casino, a 24-hour sports bar, a cafï¿½ and 7 restaurants.
