There are quite a few adults-only retreats in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and just a few all-inclusive resorts that appeal to families. Ocho Rios is a prime vacation destination for any type of traveler, however, and shouldn’t be missed — especially considering it is home to the famous Dunn’s River Falls. If you’d like to be within close proximity of the popular attraction, consider a stay at one of the following resorts.
