Close to the airport which is great for a short transfer time. Secure entrance to a fantastic and pleasant reception area where fresh iced juice was served to us. Helpful and happy staff on hand. Our room was large and spacious with a fully stocked drinks cabinet the room was cool and clean. Our room was cleaned daily and stocked with fresh towels. The pools were fantastic and the water clean and warm. Plenty of sun beds and shaded areas. The staff around the pool were lovely always asking if we wanted drinks and if we needed anything. The larger of the restaurants had a large choice of food at the buffet style breakfast and evening meal. There were also other restaurants to choose where the dress code was casual which made it more relaxing. At lunch there was the buffet in one of the restaurants of you could eat at the jerk chicken bar on the beach which was delicious. Good varied selection of drinks and the cocktails were lovely. The beach was clean and the sand very pleasant again a good selection of sun beds available. Yes there is some construction work going on with the neighbouring Sandals hotel out at sea but there was no noise from the site. The 24 hour sports bar is cool and refreshing. The hotel entertainment was nothing special but was easy watching and pleasant enough by a group of energetic and friendly staff. We stayed in block 3 and each day we were offered drugs from over the fence by a couple of local boys but once you said no they left you alone. Outside of the hotel the resort does not appear to offer you much so book day trips and guided tours if you want to see other parts of Jamaica. We had a lovely time and would recommend a relaxing holiday here at the Riu. More>

Great Fun Family Hotel

I travelled to This hotel with my wife and had heard some negative reviews, s i was a bit weary. All unfounded. I found this to be a very clean, fun, safe hotel with a great family atmosphere and great entertainment. To make your choice of weather it is for you or not, it is very big and very busy. Having said that there are two large pools, one is busy and has daytime entertainment, the other is a lot quieter , so choices are available and the entertainment staff don't myther you if you dont want to be. A simple NO is enough for the day. Downsides, small beach, Bar staff are under pressure at busy times and it can seem like rushed service.The food and choice of restaurants is excellent, as a good as anywhere. all in all 8 Or 9/10.

All inclusive hotel, food and drinks were really good but I wanted more authentic dishes. The pool had a bar right in the water which was really great and on the beach they had a jerk chicken grill, which was delicious. More>

My family and I arrived at Riu Montego Bay on July 29th. We stayed the week and enjoyed each day there. First off, this property is less than 10 minutes from the airport. We love this feature as we were the first guests to be dropped off at our resort, and within minutes we had a welcome drink in hand while checking in. At the front desk, we met Jerome. He was super friendly and helpful! If you need anything, just let him know. Our next stop was the pool bar. The bartenders there were always smiling and ready to make you a drink. We enjoyed trying their 'drink of the day'. Dyan made great bullseyes for me each morning. We travelled with two sixteen year old boys, and they enjoyed this property too. One of the reasons for this was the activity crew at this resort. They were awesome and made each day fun. A big shoutout to our favourite, Supreme! Your socks rock! Other favourites were T-Pain, Kyash, Ricky,Damien, J.Cool and J.Star. Playing beach volleyball, darts, horseshoes and crazy games with the crew was a lot of fun. Another reason my family enjoyed this property was the food. What sixteen year old boy doesn't love a large, bountiful buffet?We all enjoyed every meal. Even though we did try each restaurant, we all agreed that the buffet offered great choices that we all could enjoy together. Don't miss the Jamaican night at the buffet to try curried goat and oxtail! The entertainment in the evenings was enjoyable too. Be sure not to miss the steel drums group. They were so energetic and put on a great show. Our favourite, though, was the Michael Jackson night. Wow! A lot of work went int it. On the Tuesday of our stay, the resort was to have a beach party at night. It got rained out, but the activity crew worked hard the next day so that we could enjoy that too. A bar and dance floor were set up on the beach, and the activity crew jugggled fire and performed other stunts. We were so glad that they put this on for us. Your hard work was appreciated! We did not go off the property too often. There is a Burger King and some shops just outside the property. You can bargain with the shop owners for t-shirts and other souvenirs. Our other excursion was on the catamaran that was anchored right at this hotel. It was a three hour tour with snorkelling and shopping in Montego Bay. We loved this activity. The other activity we enjoyed at the resort was the sailing. We had Andy teach both boys how to sail the small catamarans. This was awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riu Montego Bay, and would recommend it to family and friends. We, ourselves, hope to return again soon. More>

Upon check in to this amazing hotel or so the pictures show you, it was quite obvious that a room for 3 people was not going to be available, this holiday cost myself and my other family members 1,800 pound each, it took them a while to give us a room a lot of talk between staff on the desk and a bit of a giggle or so it seemed which was very rude still we were given a room which had no 3rd bed and it smelt of damp so my family decided to go to reception to have a chat, another room was given and had no damp smell but I might add still no bed so a call from the room to ask for a 3rd bed which I paid for and was told buy the time I get back after evening food my bed would be there .WRONG.after a call to reception and an hour later still no bed 2 further trips to reception and sitting out in the corridor at gone 12 midnight a bed did arrive which to my horror was a camp bed discussed is an understatement at no time did I get an apology nobody really cared the rep on sight told us there was no family booked just a standard but 3 beds would be available that's what the Thompson rep told us when we booked this holiday what a joke not only that my brother-in-law cut his foot on the bottom of the pool which happened on the 2nd day which ruined the whole fortnight at no time did they drain the pool to clean it contaminated by my brother-in-laws blood this holiday was a joke from start to finish if your American,Jamaican,or Canadian you would love this place because they love you but take it from me if your British you won't hotel needed a major up date I will not be telling anybody to go to Jamaica and to cap it all the Thompson reps at the airport coming home need some manners.
