Owner description: Situated in the heart of Jamaica’s popular tourist destination – Ocho Rios, just minutes away from the Cruise Ship Pier, Island Village offers the perfect mix of retail and entertainment facilities all in one convenient stop. With its picturesque open air setting incorporating natural spring lagoons and beautiful flowering trees, this complex has the remarkable feeling of being almost at “One With Nature”. It manages to recreate the ambiance of a picturesque Caribbean village setting, yet at the same time housing retail and entertainment facilities. Island Village is located on the beach and stays true to its tropical location, vibrant gardens, scenic boardwalk and water features for a relaxed shopping experience. Island Village gives new dimensions to the visitor experience and has completely transformed the landscape of this popular resort community.

This place is mainly geared up for cruise ship passengers and other tourists. Usual array of touristy shops and eateries as well as a cinema, Oceans Eleven Club and Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville.

Prices are cheaper here than at the other shopping plazas that the tour drivers will want to take you too. ( For a commission from the thieving store owners)

I loved the ice cream parlour in the complex.

Nice place to walk around on a slow\nothing day for those of you staying in near by accommodation.

Just a series of souvenir shops, jewellery etc with a few cafes, designed to cater for cruise ships which tie up at nearby jetty.

I went to a 3D movie with the kids it was really good and the kids had a blast. Would go again, worth every penny.

Perfect for anyone wanting to drink or spend lots of money on souvenirs. There is a lot of nice stuff to see for anyone wanting to learn about Jamaican history and culture, but all of that can be seen in 30-60 minutes. We really shopped around among the street vendors and found some really good deals on wood carvings. Once they see the buses starting to leave, the prices do come down. When you go into the physical stores, expect high prices and high pressure sales.

Nice open space , that often wakens up in the evening, with young people. Very safe and a few nice places to have a snack or enjoy Margueritaville if you want something lively
