Beaches Ocho Rios Resort and Golf Club, a new name and a new look for the affordable all-inclusive family resort

Click here for a slideshow of Beaches Boscobel

A few years ago I enjoyed a 3 night stay at Beaches Boscobel, on the northeast coast of Jamaica. During the drive to the resort, I kept wondering where is the town of Boscobel?! Well, apparently I wasn’t the only one!! The decision was made to rename Beaches Boscobel. The new name best describes the location of the resort: Beaches Ocho Rios Resort and Golf Club. Same resort, new name!!

Back in 2005, when I stayed at the resort, it was ok, it didn’t knock my socks off! In December of 2011, I had the pleasure of visiting Beaches Ocho Rios again! What a difference a few years (and many $$$) make!!

Rooms have been completely refurbished and updated! Many of the rooms accommodate 5 people, which is a huge plus for those families with 3 children! All rooms are outfitted with top of the line plasma televisions and in-room refrigerator stocked (and re-stocked daily) with juices, water and soda. Concierge level rooms include wine, beer and liquor as well.

Kids (and adults) love the X Box Game Garage with all the video games……..and no quarters needed! It’s included!

One of the best additions to Beaches Ocho Rios is the Pirates Island Water Park! There are actually 11 water slides available for all ages, six of them for small children. For the older kids (and adults) there is a tube slide, a body slide and a speed slide! The littlest guests will love the kid’s zone and zero entry kiddie pools with a misting crab a squirting sea turtle and a splashing seahorse!

Another great addition is Liquid at Beaches, a cool place for tweens and teens to visit when the sun goes down! And the best part—no parents allowed between 10pm and 11pm!

Kids’ Kamp, for kids from 0-17 years old, is manned from 9am-9pm daily to ensure that every child who visits Beaches has a fun-filled and memorable vacation. And, since the kids are happy, mom and dad are happy too!! Children are divided into age specific groups so that they can participate in age appropriate activities. I almost forgot to mention Elmo and friends in the Sesame Street Caribbean Adventure…..lots of fun and games.

Of course, watersports are a big part of Beaches Ocho Rios. It’s all included! Kayaks, sailing, snorkeling, windsurfing, banana boats, paddle boats, aqua-trikes and a glass bottom boat are available to everyone. If you don’t know how to sail or kayak or windsurf, don’t worry. The Watersports Staff is more than happy to help you master any of the equipment.

Scuba diving is also included for those that are certified. All of your equipment is included. If you are not certified but want to learn, PADI Discover SCUBA course if offered at a minimal fee.

Land sports are also available: Basketball, shuffle board, pool, table tennis, and tennis are all included. And Golf! Sandals Golf and Country Club is a challenging 18 hole, par 71 course. A free one hour golf clinic is available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Transportation to and from the golf course, and green fees are included.

Activities are presented by the Playmakers at Beaches. They will keep everyone busy and provide entertainment in the evening. The Playmakers love to involve everyone in the fun, so be prepared to have a great time!!

There are plenty of off-resort activities, too. These do have an additional fee but if you are dying to swim with dolphins, or ride horseback through the surf, or maybe zip line, Island Routes at Beaches Ocho Rios can fix you right up!!

If Beaches Boscobel Resort and Golf Club or one of the other Beaches Resorts sound like the ideal family vacation, BFF get-a-way, family reunion, please contact one of our Certified Beaches Agents or book online.
