Beaches Ocho Rios was an amazing vacation spot for my family. Heads up! Depending on traffic, it is actually 2 hours or more from the airport. it is worth the trip. We got two rooms right on the boardwalk by the beach. This was the concierge level. It was great to just be able to walk onto the beach from our rooms. I was nervous about the noise level but the second the door closed it was silent. Waking up to those breath taking views of the ocean each day was a gift. There were some hiccups when we arrived and a little through the stay, however all the people there were so kind, understanding, and aimed to make us happy. The staff at Beaches Ocho Rios truly care. Venicia cleaned our room each day and the room was spotless. All the staff was so gracious and welcoming. These staff members work so hard they deserve a raise. We are kosher and were provided with kosher food. The staff was all very accommodating. We had an amazing time! Thank you Beaches OCHO RIOS! We already booked our next beaches getaway. Read less

Roosters waking you up at 5:30am and management did nothing about it. Food was not the greatest. Had stomach issues. Stairs everywhere. Felt bad for those families with strollers. Service was not great either. Love Jamaica, but will go to a different resort next time.

Food was sub par, activities were limited (but was due to weather for most part).

Food was sub par, activities were limited (but was due to weather for most part). Days that a la cart restaurants were closed so selection was also limited and the food was nothing to write home about. Breakfast - horrible bacon and getting eggs fresh in the morning was slow as they only had one person doing them and there was no rush to take orders. Having said that, the service by staff was otherwise the best i have experienced anywhere. Very accommodating by most - but perhaps due to the lack of Beaches "appeal". Resort seems run down, needs lots of paint as some of the buildings had mold on the windows and walls and chips in the stucco. Entertainment was boring for the most part. AC was either on or off all the time as we had to get up every night to manually control as Auto didn't work, even after we asked them to fix. Worked for a day and then back to not working properly. Great if your kids are into Sesame Street as they have a 6pm show every night. Will definitely not return for the price. Read less
