I came here a few years back for a long weekend. My room was clean. The food was great. The drinks were strong. Loved the pool. I would consider coming back with a group. Some people may not like watching planes fly by during the day because this resort is about 5 minutes from the airport. BUT you're on vacation so you won't even care. More>

When booking this hotel with my boyfriend we were very sceptical as many reviews we read were very negative. Upon arriving at the hotel we realised these bad reviews were over exaggerated! The pool was not dirty! It was only slightly dirty in the pool bar area where people had spilt their drinks. The airplanes flying over the hotel were not a nuisance. The rooms were lovely and the beds were comfortable. The staff were friendly, helpful and fun and the people selling items on the beach were polite and didn't bother you again once you told them you were not interested. The beach was not small at all, in fact it was quite long and the water was clear and relaxing! Overall I loved staying at this hotel and would go back in the future. The range of cocktails are fabulous and the staff/entertainment made our holiday more enjoyable :) More>

Had fun!

The beds were hard as a rock and the food was good, but not great. The drinks were terrific and the pool and beach were excellent. The entertainment every night was good and the dancers were astonishing! More>

Stayed in this hotel with my girlfriend after booking a last minute holiday to Jamaica... located just 10 minutes away from Sangster airport it seemed to good to be true... it wasn't.. from the moment we arrived for our 14 night stay we were treated like royalty met by a smiling waitress with fruit punch whilst waiting to check in nice touch as both of us are from Ireland the heat had us very thirsty....check in was a 3 minute procedure which was great as all we wanted was the pool and a drink and to get into holiday mode asap... arrived at our room 6009 opened the door to be met with a lovely feel of air conditioning.. room was spacious fitted out with a big wardrobe iron ironing board his and her sinks bath with power shower king king size bed both side of the bed had double drawer lockers small table TV sat on top of two chest drawers with 3 pull out shelves (lots of storage which we needed 14 days along time) balcony looking onto the tennis courts had two chairs and a railing to dry clothes and swim wear.. everything in room was working everything was clean so happy days... the pools in the hotel are clean and there's always someone cleaning whatever build up of dirt and sand which gathers in the pool which can't be avoided.. we spent most of our time whilst in the pool in the pool bar area which is an adult only pool but the odd kid does pop in every now and again (there kids what harm).. service in the pool bar was great shout out to rayon or crazy eyes my girlfriend named him. Man is a legend always entertaining always chatting always smiling and most importantly always keeping the customer topped up with a drink... the other pool which is larger was used for pool volleyball and for the water arobics classes which were great to stretch the lazy holiday bones. The food in this hotel in my opinion for an all inclusive hotel is top top class if you can't find something you like or find fault with the breakfast lunch or dinner buffets the steakhouse Italian or Asian restaurant 's well then just stay at home and cook yourself simple as.. I can't begin to describe the choice of meats pastas salads breads you name it its there and if it's not they will get it for you..only negative comment I have about the restaurant 's or buffets it was hard sometimes to get cold milk for our tea and sometimes when we asked I don't think we were understood so we were kind of ignored but we eventually found out where the cold milk was and just got it ourselves it's not a complaint it's just constructive criticism..I have to mention Lance who looked after us to a high standard everytime he served our table he's a great guy with a friendly attitude and always met us with a smile and always had a ya mon for us when he spotted us.. our last night in the hotel was one to remember as we decided to have a meal on the beach there's a cost to this of 75 $ per person but it's worth it..we had prawn salad followed by a bisque soup for main course my girlfriend had the surf and turf whilst I had the beef medallions..perfection on plates overlooking the ocean sitting on the beach with your loved one. Do it guys you'll score some serious brownie points ha ha...last but not least big respect to the entertainment staff these guys and gals work around the clock from 10 in the morning until 11 at night there the life and soul of the hotel there the heart that pumps the energy threw each and every guest in the property.. j star Ricky shampoo baby face kashya good job keep it up.. thanks again Jamaica thanks again riu montego bay ..

The hotel was fine with nice pools and a great gym. However, we found that the bar staff in particular took exception when they knew you were British. The smiles disappeared and the service was below standard. This happened to all 4 of us in my family and it wasn't just one night. The pool entertainment is lively and the restaurant food is fine. The chicken jerk off the beach bar is awesome. The al a carte is not what I would expect to see for a 5 star with the Chinese restaurant basically a buffet service. If you intend going on excursions, use the local taxis as they will do the trips for cheaper in air conditioned vans and you'll get some humour and a good service as well. The Bob Marley excursion is a long trip there and back, and frankly not really good value, but you do get to see some of inner Jamaica. The one trip I would highly recommend is Pelican Bar - I've included some photos - it's a bar in the middle of a bay where time stands still and you can drink red stripe and eat freshly cooked fish - - The owner is great as well. The other trip which is fun is Dunns River falls where you get very wet but it's a good laugh. There is a reasonable Indian Restaurant across the road from the hotel, but a little bit expensive - a good meal though. Overall I thought the hotel was Ok, but as I mentioned earlier the attitude of some of the staff soured our experience. More>
