Beaches Ocho Rios Resort & Golf Club, formerly Beaches Boscobel, completed a $30 million renovation that added more restaurants, an enhanced kids' program and new looks to the property's four villages.

The French Village refurbished its wedding lounge, Red Lane Spa and Eleanor's restaurant and added a "quiet" pool for guests.

Beaches debuted its Greek Village on a hill overlooking the beach. The 59 oceanfront rooms sit on three levels, named for the Greek islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Naxos.

The Greek Village includes the Calypso Bar and the OPA Sunset Bar.

The central building of the resort now is the Italian Palazzo, which features a large outdoor terrace, the resort's reception and lobby area, 24 rooms and suites and the Dolce Vita penthouse.

Suites have been renovated and refurbished in the Caribbean Village near the resort's main pool, restaurants and Pirate's Island waterpark.

Teens and tweens have new hangouts, which include Xbox games and the Scratch DJ Academy, while Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch will entertain the little ones.

Kid-friendly dining options have been added, as well.
