Check in was a breeze and we were able to get to our room before noon. We made reservations for all specialty restaurants when we finished checking in. Got all 3, no problem. The food and staff were very nice and no complaints. Be wary of the free WI FI, I only used my phone in the lobby and my phone charges were $75.00. Go across the street shopping, (the blue building) the grocery store was selling the bottled spices for $1 USD while the souvenir shops were selling them for $3. Blackwell Rum was a bargain there at $15.00 USD plus tax. More>

Very Nice Stay

Just returned from 12 lovely days at the RIU Montego Bay. Rooms were very nice, large bed, Air Con, Flat screen TV with cable channels that worked, no problem with hot water, Iron and ironing board and the lovely mini bar. More than adequate for anybody and cleaned religously everyday. Fresh towels daily if required. Meals were good with a variety always available, so there was always something for everyone. The speciality restaurants were not tried as there was enough selection for us at the regular sittings. The omlette stations were the only problem in the mornings at breakfast, always a big que for any type of Egg required. Having said that, it wasn't a problem if you chose to wait 10 mins. Lunch was a bit more limited but not so much so that anyone went hungry. Jerk chicken on the beach was a daily feast. The complex itself was kept impecable. The large pool was plenty for everyone and the swim up bar was a bonus for those that like to keep cool while enjoying a cool beer. The childrens complex was equipped with a small jacuzzi , climbing frames and other toys and a tv showing cartoons to keep the little ones happy. The entertainment was slightly better than i expected and credit goes to the staff who worked extremely hard everyday. The beach is beautiful. Plenty of sunbeds for everyone and the free non-motorised watersports were a nice bonus. Wonderful shallow bay for paddling with the little ones, or taking a dip. We enjoyed our stay very much and stayed on the complex for this visit. We had done the tours last visit, decided to just relax on this one. I took a look at the neighbouring RIU PALACE which adjoins this complex. Before being promptly thrown off the site i had seen enough to know that staying at the RIU Montego was the right decision. If your a smoker then you have 3 small designated areas where you are allowed to smoke. Since the laws changed a couple of years ago, you can no longer enjoy a smoke without the inconvienience of having to walk to a designated area. Apart from that, it was a lovely place and i really can't fault it. If you get chance go and enjoy sometime at this family friendly hotel and relax More>

Three of us just returned from Riu,Montego Bay, Jamaica on May 8th. Service by all staff is top-notch. Special mention goes to Adrian,who, with untiring patience,helped us in finding better rooms upon arrival. The original ones were unacceptable, claustrophobic and had views only of another guest's living room !! This hotel has been misrepresented on-line & in "Signature Vacations" catalogue. We ended up having to pay $315.US for up-graded rooms that we already paid for in the price of the trip. This hotel is graded 5-star but in reality,deserves 3 - 3 1/2 stars only. ROOMS: 1.bedding is old,worn & cheat 2.bathroom,no amenities-only soap & cheap,drying shower gel 3.tub is narrow,small-stand one foot ahead of the other to keep from falling-security bar is rusty & loose 4. bar has beer & liquors in dispensers that are cheap,watered down American brands only FOOD: all restaurants are basically buffet-steakhouse is served with little choice on menu - main buffet offers no assistance in seating or info.on food available--guests seem to rush around "en masse" in a panic that special choices will be gone - NOT A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE !!! 3.wines offered are "white or red"-none memorable. 4. food lacks quality and /or flavour 5.BAR:advertized "international brands" are NON-EXISTENT - head bartender not familian with sherry,cognac or scotch--no sparkling wine offered anywhere. This hotel is spread out into 3-story blocks, most with no views of anything but balconies of the next building. Life here involves constant walking on concrete paths - not planned with seniors or families with small children in mind. We 3 are active seniors and usually enjoy 5-star vacations such as Iberostar Montego Bay. We were very disappointed with this Riu experience and intend to request a refund of ,at least, the extra charge. Will not return to any Riu hotel in the future. More>
