I stayed at Couples Ocho Rios and I know its a different resort but I second the glass bottom boat activity, we did that as well and it was so great.

As an FYI, make you to make your reservation for the glass bottom boat ride as early in the day as possible. They only do them at noon and 4 pm, and they both book up by mid-morning. What stinks is that you can only reserve a slot for the day you're actually doing it. The water sports office opens at 8:30 am, and we made sure we were down there then after missing it the first day we wanted to go!
Oh, and the Aqua Trikes are HUGE! My legs were a little sore afterward.

Restaurant (and dish): I really like the steak with Blue cheese at Valentino. I forget what it was actually called. I LOVED the Jamaican Smiles from any of the bars...lol
Hang out place: There are soo many places. The pool on the Riviera side near the water sports. It was never terribly busy. The pool with the slide on the Manor side is where we had most of our laughs. Our room was great and I loved sitting my balcony reading first thing in the morning. The hidden pool was pretty cool too. Oh and the Pier has swings you can sit in and just look out into the ocean.
Bar/Lounge: The bar in the Riviera building but only cause our favorite bartender Milton worked there. :-)
Excursion: River tubing but I liked Coyaba Gardens and Dunns River alot too.
Included Activity: LIke everyone else said, the glass botton boat. We did all the water activities and really liked the wind sailing too.

What was your favorite:
Restaurant (and dish) - Reef Terrace (West Indian Pepper Pot Soup)
Hang out place - The patio at our villa and the Manor Pool
Bar/Lounge - Didn't really hang out at the bars! But visited the one on the manor side the most (for convenience!)
Excursion - We planned an outside excursion for us and our guests thru Lee's Tours and they created a special sight-seeing, Dunn's River Falls, and shopping tour for us. It was great!
Included Activity - Windsurfing was a lot of fun (I got completely soaked!) and we really enjoyed the snorkeling trip.
