Ocho Rios is one of the most important regions of the Caribbean island of Jamaica. In fact, the city is the first in Jamaica to develop as a tourist center. The population of Ocho Rios is only about 9,500 people. So whether you fly or cruise to Ocho Rios, don’t worry about the hustle and bustle of big American cities. The city has great attractions like the Ocho Rios Dolphin Encounter, Bamboo Rafting Adventures, and a selection of horseback tours and excursions to keep travelers busy. The best features of this tourist paradise, however, are the large selection of all-inclusive hotels and resorts available to meet any vacation need.
For travelers looking to take the whole family on a fun-filled vacation, Ocho Rios has excellent hotels and resorts to suit the wishes of the whole family. The resort that seems to get the most rave reviews for being a family-oriented facility is the Beaches Boscobel Resort and Golf Club-All Inclusive. This complex has placed throughout the complex costumed replicas of the all-time favorite children’s show, Seseme Street. The complex also has 5 restaurants, 3 pools, a children’s camp program, babysitting rooms and much more to keep the kids entertained. Adults can relax at nearby Sandals Golf Course, where guests staying at the resort can play for free. This is just the tip of the iceberg of the many offerings at this 5-star resort. Other great options for a family stay in Ocho Rios are Sunset Grande Resort and Spa-All Inclusive and FDR Resort.
Don’t forget mom and dad. For married couples who need to relight that fire, Sandals Dunns River Villaggio Golf Resort and Spa-All Inclusive can add the fuel to get you started. The complex has a breathtaking view of both the beautiful green mountains and the white sand beach. The resort is inspired by the elegant Italian Renaissance period which adds a romantic atmosphere for couples. There is a waterfall located just a few minutes from the resort where love can easily return. Live musicians and performers from Italy provide dazzling entertainment for visitors. This resort is not the only place for a romantic getaway. Some other great options for couples are the Couples Sans Souci-All Inclusive and the Couples Tower Isle-All Inclusive. Both resorts are elegant beachfront properties with more than 150 romantic rooms and suites. Each of these resorts has 5 restaurants with unique menu selections and a variety of bars to enjoy a few drinks. Both resorts earn a 4-star rating from most experts, and again, these facilities are couples-only.
If you are an extremist and enjoy the stranger things in life, Ocho Rios has something for you too. Hedonism III is a strictly adults-only pleasure zone. The resort has its own private beach which is mostly nudist. Don’t you want to go naked? Paradise Beach and Cardiff Hall Beach are just minutes away. Ocean views from every room set the stage for some exotic action. The complex has 5 restaurants, 6 bars, several swimming pools and tennis courts. The complex even has a circus workshop with flying trapezes, unicycles, and other high-flying circus acts. Please note that this is an adults only resort, so please keep children home.
