Taxi Driver in Ocho Rios

Recommended Posts

Hello All -

 

I will be at the RIU in Ocho Rios from 12/1 - 12/7 and would like to know if any of you can recommend a private taxi driver. I read about a man by the name of Kingsley on the Trip Advisor site. I always like to know local taxi drivers for quick trips into town, etc. (not for tours). Thanks for your help.

I was just there, I wish we had done the same thing (look for private cabs). I don't know of any, but I do know they have resort-affiliated buses/vans just waiting for folks like us, who charge $30.00 round trip when you are only literally going down the road a couple miles. Avoid them at all costs.

I will second the recommendation for Lees Taxis and Tours, we used them for our Cool Runnings Cruise group excursion and for a day trip my husband and I took the day after the wedding to swim with the dolphins. Our driver took us wherever we wanted to go, made stops in the town when we asked, walked around the market with us (which was very welcome because some of the vendors were extremely pushy), waited for us at each location we stopped at, as well as waiting for us to have some breakfast at the resort because we were so exhausted we could barely drag ourselves out of bed! I would highly recommend them, no complaints at all and Norma was such a pleasure to deal with.

On our stay in ROR last June we too found the taxis at the desk over priced which is fine if your not on a budget (if your daring enough the local bus to Ochi centre was a $2 return!).

We used Marshall who was recommended through staff for the duration of our trip.

He was very reasonably priced & in no rush on our excursions (he even gave my partner water shoes at Dunns River to save him buying a pair).

Marshall cell 460 5870.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
