SIMPLY INCREDIBLE VACATION

Please ignore negative reviews. This place has everything you need to have a wonderful holiday. The food is abundant, quality and service exceptional. The staff bend over backwards to ensure your happiness.Travelled as a group 12 adults and 5 kids under 12. Not a single negative of significance occurred to our group. You make your vacation. Kudos to the whole entertainment staff--bartenders--waiters/waitresses--maids and gardeners. They really work hard to acheive your complete satisfaction. I highly recommend the catamaran tour(takes you snorkelling,Margarittaville, hip strip shopping area. Search for Charlotte to book it.She's awesome. Overall a glorious time and can't wait to go back. Recommended for all. Booked thru Sell Off Vacations

Disappointment as soon as you walk in.

The check in was long and we were passed around 3 times. Once to check in to get a bracelet then u were sent to the desk so the next guy can cut ur bracelet and staple it to another paper u gotta fill out and then ur sent to a next line to receive your package. No bell boy assisted us to our room so after a long flight you have to venture out and find your room. If that wasnt enough running around we finally found our room to find 2 men working on the bathroom and told us we got the wrong room when it was clearly written on our package. Rooms are old and they use regular keys that are hard to open and they only give you one so u must stand in line again to request and sign out the next key. The staff is terribly rude and not friendly. I came for a fun relaxing vacation and this is not what I expected from a high end hotel like the riu. This is not my first time in Jamaica and the way you get treated here is not one you would want to experience. All in all I do not recommend this hotel even if its dirt cheap. Again this is my first day here and I am not impressed. I will update my review after this debacle of a vacation to give you all the other things that can go wrong

Great Family Trip

We travelled to Montego Bay and stayed at the Riu September 11-18. BEST time to travel! Weather was amazing and the hotel itself was not to overly busy which was great! Last year we visited Montego Bay in February and the weather was much cooler. Staff at the Riu were very pleasant, kind and friendly. The staff was very polite and playful with our kids. Always great to see smiling faces everywhere! Hotel itself was clean, best time to be at the pools was during the morning hours (sometimes the pools were a bit cloudy - not sure if that was the overnight cleaning solutions) we found that close to lunch time the pools became more busier. With two small kids having the convenience to get to the pool in the morning hours made it much easier for them to enjoy. Great pool activities and music playing all day. There isn’t anything like slides etc for kids - so if you are travelling with small children bring toys and floaties etc. Food wise - the jerk chicken on the beach was delicious. Buffet food was hit and miss - same with the a la carte restaurants. The only restaurant we didn’t try was the Asian one. There is NO ROOM SERVICE which was the only negative... especially with children. When your kids fall asleep before dinner time... food was a problem! Keep extra snacks, fruits etc in your room! You weren’t allowed to take food to your room..... but We did - the staff with kids understood that you couldn’t leave the little ones hungry! We have stayed at the Riu in Aruba and found the food quality was much better. I mean it was decent here but not amazing. We also tried to order Pizza Hut and have it delivered to our hotel room and we were told that because of the rain (the one night it rained) that the delivery guy was being slowed down by the rain and it would take him a few hours to give us our order.... so my husband walked right across the street and picked up a pizza in less than 20mins. There is a strip mall and grocery store across the hotel - (across from Burger King) which is convenient incase you need any odds and ends. We did our souvenir shopping from the small stores across the street. Be careful crossing the road leading to the strip mall - some people are reckless with their driving and you also will come across some people trying to sell you weed lol. We took a catamaran tour of the bay - so worth the 2 hours we were on the water for. Captain Andy and is crew were great! Such a friendly bunch and my kids enjoyed their company so much! We took a small tour of Martha’s Brae which was nice and we also travelled into the city. It’s so convenient that this hotel is literally 10mins away from the airport. Check out time the day we left was really early and we paid extra to check out late because our flight was not scheduled till about 9pm. Overall we had a great time at the Riu. We met a lot of families and couples from different parts of the states, Europe and England which made our trip more pleasant. Thank you to all the staff who made this family vacation for us an awesome one!

We just got back from Riu Montego Bay! We booked our trip quick and easy through Sell off Vacations (St. Catherine’s location). We had a group of 17 (family, friends and kids). The food was great, the jerk chicken on the beach was the best! My boyfriend has colitis and he is on a low fibre diet he he found it very easy to eat at the resort (chicken, steamed broccoli, carrots and steamed cauliflower). The rooms were spacious with a mini bar and patio! The pool was a lot of fun with a convenient swim up bar. The beach was nice we always found lounge chairs to sit on and there was shady areas for the kids. The sea was warm and the beach was very clean. It said it was going to rain everyday, we were there for eight days and it only rained one day. The entertainment staff was fantastic (Damian,Styles, Spice, Sunshine, Smalls, Triple X, Cupcake, Tanisha, Breezy And there were others I couldn’t remember there names) they made the kids stand out and remembered there names. They looked like they are having the best time and best job ever. Everyone of them was amazing at getting the crowd going during performances! We also tried the water aerobics and scuba diving in the pool with Flipper he was awesome, friendly and the water aerobics was not super hard but there was more resistance from the water then I expected! We went paddle boating and paddle boarding a lot, which I recommend for getting views of the mountains. We took a catamaran out with our group which was fantastic, it was organized by Sylvia. Captain Andy and his crew (Jeiti, Colorman and Katie) took us snorkelling and the hip strip. The hotel is less then 10 min from the airport the check in and out was very fast! We had a great time we would recommend for everyone and we hope to be back on day.

Party time!

Great for a girls holiday! No kids, swim up bar, and music pumping all day. We went all inclusive and the cocktails were fab. Jerk chicken on the beach is not to be missed! Fun and activities through the day and night With a handful of restaurants to choose from at night. We stayed for a week and you have to book in advance in you want to try one of the “specialist” restaurants. Rooms were functional but clean and spacious. Good value for money if you’re not expecting “luxury”
