Looking for an island excursion where there are beaches, waterfalls, and no kids?
Jewel Resorts’ Dunn’s River Resort & Spa Ocho Rios, which is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, is an all-inclusive Jamaican resort for adults 18 years and older, located in the port town of Ocho Rios. Don’t let the Italian renaissance look of the resort fool you, because you will experience all of the sights, sounds and tastes of Jamaica during your stay.
On vacation, travelers want to feel comfortable and relaxed. Skip hotels that offer cramped accommodations with a view of the parking lot because at this resort you get accommodations that make you feel like a king or queen. Enjoy being pampered with a turndown service and then wake up in your four-post canopied bed and take a look out at the view of the ocean. There are even suites that come with, yes, a personal butler who will take care of checking in, unpacking, pressing, turndown service, and more.
Dunn’s River Resort & Spa Ocho Rios also offers accessible rooms with a minimum 40-inch clearance on all doorways and between furnishings.
Vacationing is hard work and you’ll need some sustenance during your stay. The Aquamarina Beach Bar & Grill offers made-to-order sandwiches, burgers, wraps and cocktails and will bring it right to you. The Coral Café is an all-day, all-night place to fill up whenever you need it. Court Jesters Fire Oven Pizza offers pizza perfection, while the Jade Samurai brings cooking right to your table. You can also mangia at Moonstone by Dominic, an Italian restaurant that serves everything from spaghetti and risotto to Italian-prepared chicken and pork. Platinum offers a more sophisticated experience with a meal made up of multiple Caribbean cuisine tastings.
When it’s time for fun, you can’t miss one of the most popular activities on the resort – a dive-in movie at the pool. There are many doings to choose from, including basketball, paddle tennis table, billiards, golf, sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling and tennis. There’s also nighttime musical entertainment as well.
But at the Caribbean, it’s all about the water and the resort offers an on-site beach, two hot tubs and two pools, one with a waterfall, as well as a Radiant Spa. Here you can rid yourself of any remaining stress you might have with a couple's meditation massage session for two, aromatic bath, private sunset Pilates session and a romantic candlelit dinner for two.
The Falls Pool offers a water feature that will remind you of Dunn’s River Falls, but go ahead and take a trip over to the real thing. Dunn’s River Falls is one of Jamaica's national treasures with cascades and waterfalls which flow straight into the Caribbean Sea. Dunn’s River Falls was featured in the James Bond Movie “Dr. No”.
