There was black hair all over our toilet and the box springs looked like they had been dragged thru the dirt. The box springs in my nephews room honestly looked like it had been dragged thru the dirt and dug out of a dumpster. He had room service and a supervisor to his room and they didn't see anything wrong with it. There was hair all over their sheets and staff got an attitude when asked to change the sheets. I was disappointed in the food. Although the food was kept under heat lights, it was still cold. The pool and beach area was fantastic and out dining staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Overall, because of the rooms, I don't think I would recommend this resort to friends.

When we checked in we were told our rooms was almost ready, and to come back in a half hour. When we returned we were told they still were not ready, and to come back in 15 minuets. We went and booked excursions and came back about 45 minuets later and the rooms were still not ready. When we finally got the keys, one of the rooms keys did not work, this took about 30 minuets or more to figure out. That room had an musty/moldy smell. It didn't go away so after 3 days we talked to front desk. We were told that a new room would be ready at noon the next day. it wasn't ready at noon, one or two thirty. We did not get the keys until after 5:00. One morning we woke up to no hot water, which then turned into no water or electricity for multiple hours. A few days later we had no water or power again for about an hour. When we spoke to the front desk/manager they were not overly concerned about our issues and we not overly helpful or concerned. This was our second stay at this RIU resort and third stay at a RIU resort. We were extremely dissattisfied with RIU Montego Bay this year.

There was no pool service. We are used to having a waitress come around and bring drinks at the pool. No service at the nightly entertainment either. The buffet was not to our liking. The nightly entertainment a couple of the nights was some of the best we have seen. The bartenders at the coconut were really good and we enjoyed sitting there. Not much in the way of music at the pool.

The only disappointments we had were with the excursions and the food. We felt the excursions were way over-priced and there should have been more jamaican cuisine. I get enough pizza, fries, burgers, asian food, and pasta here in the states.

Riu Montego Bay is one of many hotels on iron shore in Jamaica but it is sadly not one of the best (or very good for that matter) I’ll start with the positives. The staff are very friendly, that’s about it. The beach is very small and most of the sun loungers are broken or in very poor condition & and don’t look like they have been cleaned in a long time. There is extremely louse music played at the pool everyday, there are party boats playing thumping music full of drunk tourists going past often and late at night and there are also beach vendors kayaking up and down the beach making lots of noise during the day and night. All in all this is not the best place for a relaxing couples Holliday. The excursions are pricey, some up to £160 person & the people selling them are annoyingly pushy. The food is a bit hit and miss with some of it being okay and some being completely inedible. The rooms are extremely old and don’t look like they have been updated in decades! We had a ocean view room but honestly with all the party boats and beach venders making noise 24/7 it’s not worth it. All in all this place is in need of a refurbishment and and it’s not really with staying at, try your luck elsewhere.

5 star in Montego Bay!

Our first trip to Jamaica and it wont be our last thanks to Riu Adult Montego Bay. Honestly, one of the most relaxing trips we've ever been on. The rooms come with a fully stocked bar and the food is excellent! Make sure to catch one of the amazing nightly shows.

loved it

This resort is just ok, as in the food was ok, the rooms were ok, the amenities were ok. Constant planes flying overhead, weedy water. It’s right near the airport so quick drive to resort. Our room was broken into the first night and hundreds of dollars stolen as the safe was broken in the room, security didn’t care. I would never ever go back there if given the choice.

We have stayed at the Riu Montego Bay three different times in the past ten years. We experienced very good service throughout the resort each time. It is a beautiful facility inside and out, but it is showing its age and its condition is beginning to appear "rough". We will probably stay at one of the newer Riu Hotels on our next vacation trip.
