Ocho Rios has developed a wide array of accommodation options thanks to its place as one of the original resort towns in Jamaica. Nevertheless, at the lower end, conditions tend to be consistently on the shabby side with few exceptions, while there are several good mid-range and high-end options.
Many of Jamaica's wealthiest families have weekend homes on Discovery Bay, making it one of the island's most exclusive villa enclaves. Many of these homes rent through agents, while some rent directly through the owners, but usually the pricing is the same either way and renting through an agent can afford some accountability and recourse should you have any problems.
A smattering of low-key budget accommodations can also be found in Discovery Bay, with little in between the budget and luxury extremes.
