Just So So

Let me first say that Montego Bay is beautiful. I loved the weather, sunshine and beaches. However, this resort needs to do better. Riu is in the middle of a not so great neighborhood. So obviously you need to entertain your guests. They don't have enough activities in my opinion. Restaurant reservations are difficult to get. Plates are left out in the hallways all day, attracting insects. They do not have cream for your coffee. (I was told that cream and milk were basically the same)...NOT! I'm a certified lactose intolerant person, so I know there is. I also don't eat chicken, beef and pork...so some turkey bacon or sausage would've been appreciated. But they didn't have any...and the fish selection wasn't great either. Some of the buildings do not have elevators. So I would ask the front desk before check in. Some of the staff was friendly and others were trying...but not convincing. If my complaints don't bother you than this hotel is fine. If you are thinking twice than I would advise you to spend a little more and go to the Hilton... More>

RIU Montego Bay

RIU is about 10 minutes from the airport. This allows for a quick entry and exit. The resort is small compared to some others. There are several restaurants one of which my sister and I ate at. Check-in was uncomplicated and pleasant but on that day I think an extra person to handle the luggage would have helped. Our first room the air conditioning was quite inadequate and we were switched immediately. That was good. The large dining room handled the large flow of people. They had seats indoors and out and that was great. Again they could have had more people cleaning tables to allow for a faster turnover. The beach was not that good. It is small and it was shared by the boats that take you diving. This resort is a good first resort if you have never been to an all inclusive. The workers are very accommodating. There were quite a few kids so this is very family oriented. More>

The staff was great and it was very relaxing vacation. Next time adult only resort for me. But this isn't the resort's fault. Lesson learned :) The food and drinks were great. Mini bar in room was a plus. The pool was wonderful and the beach was even better. The entertainment team was very good. More>

Smelly resort.

I vacation for 1 wk in August 2015, the hotel is ok, the rooms smell so bad, you had to hold your breath to get dress. There are 3 specially restaurants on premises, the service is really bad, along with the food. We ate at the buffet all our days, the staffs are very friendly. We sat for breakfast and lunch where Kayann will be our server, she is great, Andre is very kind as well. Our days was spent at the pool with the life guards, who made our days very enjoyable, if you get the time to visit, Gawayne and Orenton are very helpful. Not enough bars on the premises, you had to walk far to the bathrooms as well. The jerk chicken was good, the guys were very friendly as well. I will say apart from the friendly staffs, the hotel need to be upgraded. Not a bad place, just poorly managed. There was a manager on premises daily, but totally out of touch. No friendly at all, so bad for business. He is this little skinny dude, that just watch you with a serious look all the time, God for bid, he should ever crack a smile. Maybe he don't know how to open his mouth to even say hello to the people that made a possible for him to collect a pay check. I will visit this hotel again only to see the people that work there that was great, but not to stay. More>

DO NOT waste your time or money here!!! I had a better time at the Holiday Inn !! Horrible rooms no space to put things in the drawer I had to live mostly out of my suitcase because I shared a room. Never again will I do a Riu in Montego Bay again! Im a person who travels here every year and been doing since 1990. Food was so so, staff is rude,the front desk people are no help. There are flies all in the hallway and in your room if you dont run inside. Everyone asking for a tip. Its super hot where they do the night shows they need some strong fans up in there. We made the best of it. Friday night Pier 1 the club and sat night Margaritaville..club is boring in resort. Andddd to top it off the day we checked out, we went to the desk like 8:30am when checkout is at 11am but we were being picked up at 9:45am so we ate and went to the front at 9:15 waiting for 9:45 pick up.. do you know they left us!! they said they were looking for us.NOT!! we were in the front since 9:15! we had to pay 20US to go to the airport when the transfer was paid for with the trip! DONT GO!!!!!!! More>
