Decent place

I really liked that this hotel is on a quiet beach that's great for swimming, but not much sand though if you are into tanning (not sure anyone is these days). Breakfast included, Rooms are OK. The parking area is dark and sketchy and having read other reviews about it i was nervous about leaving my rental there, so I asked management if I could parallel park against the property, which they allowed. All was fine in the end, nice friendly staff, OK for a night and I liked that it was a bit away from the city center and all the hustle.

peaceful

This spot in Ocho Rios is beautiful. It is set away from all tourist spots but, still close enough to enjoy all the Ocho Rios has to offer. The staff are amazing and keep the place very clean. We would definately go back next time we are in Ochee!

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

local vegetarian cuisine and local people are the advantage here if you have strong shoes and love to be a part of the Jamaican culture. Crystal Ripple is far away from all the tourist food & attractions.
