Our trip was very good. The resort was clean, the food was great, and the staff was awesome. We had minor inconveniences that prevented the rating from being excellent. The ping pong table was broken. The basketball and air hockey machines in Trenchtown were broken. The main pool was closed for half a day one day. There were no aquatrikes that were listed in the brochure. So 4 items that the kids were looking forward to were broken or did not exist. A few smaller inconveniences like no hot water for a full day and a requested blanket not being provided were negatives, but the positives of the rest of the resort outweighed all of that. I would recommend the resort and hope that some of the items are fixed. One last negative, the shuttle rides to/from the resort were a little scary as the drivers frequently texted while driving and would also drive into oncoming traffic to pass slower cars. We were fine, but it didn't necessarily make you feel comfortable being in the shuttle. Read less

We had fun. And we had some good meals. And the staff were without exception enthusiastic, kind and helpful. The resort was clean. And there was always someone asking us if we needed help. We did find the resort loud. I could hear people walking and talking in the corridor, clearly in our room, the next door neighbours television, and at 2 am, someone cleaning the hallways. I found there were few places to relax on the property that were not loud. Not a problem for some but a bit exhausting for us. Room prep could use some work. We had to seek housekeeping for bedding (no one told us the day bed had an elastic cover on it with a fully made bed underneath). And again to get our phone working, and again to get a plunger for the bath to turn into a shower. The sliding doors to the guardrailed window were very difficult to open and close and there was lots of construction dust and paint chips in the tracks. The sink stopper was non-functional and the faucet was loose, but we did not bother reporting these last two on top of the other issues. Our room felt damp after a few days because we didn't have a place to dry our swim gear. And some messaging is confusing. No need to make reservations at meals -- except if you don't, you might not get into the restaurant of your choice. I also specified an allergy on our reservation except no one clearly told us to go to the culinary concierge to make sure meals would be dairy-free. Even then, often the restaurants were not able to supply a dairy-free dessert despite the concierge telling us they would make sure to send one to the restaurant. We had wine with a meal, lingered at the table and said goodbye to the staff -- then received a phone call at 10pm that we had not signed for the wine. A note under the door or a reminder at breakfast would have sufficed. The beach is small - a bit too small for teens. Perfect for really young families. Read less

First time to Jamaica and most certainly won't be the last. I hope we can get our same room. This resort is amazingly wonderful and the staff are like family. Food is amazing, drinks stay on a constant flow and it's the good stuff... Activities galore and possibly the most hospitable people we've encountered to date on any vacation at any hotel or resort. Check out Sharon at the Spa, Shania at the La Parisienne French restaurant. Most of all if you are lucky and get Toni-Ann as your concierge, expect the most professional and amazing experience. And these are just a few of the names that we can remember. Like I said, FAMILY... (the good ones that you miss when you have to go back home). :-) Check out Beaches Ocho Rios Resort and expect a wonderful vacation. Read less

Everything about our vacation at the Beaches Ocho Rios was amazing. We were there with a party of 7 (two families) and we were still able to get in everywhere easily. Ophelia and Dillon took care of my brother in law, who has celiac disease, and made sure he had amazing meals for breakfast lunch and dinner, going above abs beyond. He mentioned that he hasn’t been able to enjoy eating like three since being diagnosed. Jinelle at the pool always made sure we all had a drink in our hands at all times. She did it with kindness and a smile on her face at all times. She truly made our vacation that much more enjoyable. Every staff member there from the grounds people to the cooks to the loyalty lounge were all great. You do truly feel like your going back home. I tell everyone planning a vacation to make sure they visit a Beaches or Sandals. Even our 14 year old son who is impressed by nothing made mention of the amazing customer service. We booked our next vacation at Beaches before we even left. Highly, highly recommend. Read less
