We loved it here! Great room with great view, great food! Could go as many times as you wanted of the ala Cartes. The beach was nice, had great snorkeling with colorful coral and plant life, went fishing and paddleboating. Free wifi in common areas. Listened to Paul the singing bartender every night after dinner in the lobby bar. Didn't have any trouble with bugs. More>

First trip to Jamaica & with 12 year old
dearjen213, Chicago, Illinois
Mon May 02 06:48:23 EDT 2016
We took the adventurous bus from the airport and as we pulled up to the hotel others on the bus commented "wow wish we were staying here." After 5 days I am very happy we stayed here as well. I was traveling first time to Jamaica with my 12 year old daughter and selected this hotel because of its location and the quality of its amenities- plus being an all inclusive meant not needing to travel for food each meal. (A little background - I used to live in Hawaii and unfortunately compare every tropical vacation to my experiences in Hawaii. Makes me picky.) Our room way exceeded our expectations - it was huge, as was our lanai. The fridge was stocked with plenty of drinks and when we ran out of Coke and Coke Light, staff arrived and filled the fridge in less than 10 minutes. The pools were clean and well taken care of. Staff put on shows and games throughout the day. Never a long wait at the walk-up or swim-up bars and the chicken hut on the beach was so delicious. The items at the restaurant buffet rotate but we always found enough variety and good food we walked out with our bellies so full we hurt. My 12 year old is a very picky eater so I was happy she found things to enjoy as well. Guests were all so friendly and the staff in the restaurants, stores and even first aid were incredibly nice. The wifi was strong in the lobby so we could FaceTime with family back home. Totally worth it! More>

Thomson.. Dream holiday?....NO
Anita P, Heanor, United Kingdom
Sun May 01 06:19:48 EDT 2016
Myself and my husband went to club riu in negril, Jamaica as a special dream holiday for my husbands 50th birthday. booked through Thomson we expected perfection? Not! We were confined to complex as it was too dangerous to go out! Cannabis being grown in pots on the beach as well as all locals seeming to be high as kites! Cocaine openly on sale! Staff eating in the same restaurant as the tourists, including a gardener walking through with a filthy wheel Barrow! Buskers allowed in the outdoor restaurant with a tip pot! This holiday was a complete upset and disappointment! After emailing Thomson about our concerns 2 weeks ago, I am still awaiting a response! Extremely poor More>

DONT LISTEN TO THE BAD REVIEWS

First of all, do not listen to the bad reviews on this! We almost changed our holiday because of them! Nothing was true at all! Every single member of staff we met were amazing and very helpful! The reception ladies even gave me a room key for free when I lost it, when she was supposed to charge me $20!! The room - We got block two, right in front of the beach, comfy beds and a good shower, the house keeping was excellent! I tipped her 2-3 dollars a day and she done wonderful towel displays. There was a fridge with Coca Cola (diet and normal) fizzy orange and two big bottles of water, there was also vodka, brandy, gin, and rum on the wall. The food - PLENTY OF CHOICE!! The buffet was amazing! Different themes every night! I loved Mexican night! Staff there were very helpful and always kept my drinks topped up! The speciality restaurants however, aren't really worth booking, the steakhouse only have two types of steak which were loin, and ribeye, The Italian had no spaghetti or lasagne, instead had fish and steak. You do not have to get up at 7am to book one of these restaurants, it's open until 4pm. Breakfast was amazing! The sausages were my favourite. It's all American style, pancakes, bacon, doughnuts, cereal and loads more!! Lunch in the seagull was my favourite meal! With burgers and pizza and much more! Night time and bars - Most nights they had a reggae band playing until 9.30 when 'showtime' began, which was the animation team putting on a very entertaining show, the steal drum band were my favourite!! The bars were all good, I preferred the lobby bar with Paul the singer, he was very good but didn't sing every night, the sports bar was good, it had two pool tables, 4 or 5 tvs with different sports on! The pool bar was also very good but the drinks tasted weaker. Beach - The beach is MUCH nicer in person than it is in pictures! It may not be as lush as the 7 mile but it is very nice! With a very warm sea! The beach bar staff were very funny. The jerk chicken is a must!!!! We went parasailing which was brilliant, we also went on the water couch which was very funny!! The wildthing catamaran cruise is a must!! Book it with a lady named fabulous!! It stopped at ricks cafe and margaritaville! Both very expensive for food and drinks but it's worth it Any trips you go on, they almost ask you for tips, so take lots of tip money ($1, $5) The free water sports is fun! The pedal boats were my favourite but they only go on until 4pm It was hot every day! We had one day of rain but it was warm rain and still 33° The hotel blocks are quite far from the main hotel even if you're in block two (5 minute walk) not that far but far enough if you've forgotten something.

second time to Riu Negril
flyaway26, toronto,canada
Wed Apr 27 08:12:17 EDT 2016
I visited Riu Negril as a TA. The check in process was fast and i got to my room which was clean and comfortable . Request a room with a balcony and a view , some balcony`s are made of concrete so when your sitting you cant see anything. There are no elevators and the gardenview rooms are quite a long walk through the building. The rooms are non smoking , u cant smoke cigarettes on the balcony but other types of smoking is allowed. The Oceanview are oceanview and the oceanfront rooms are located facing the ocean (where people walk by) .The hotel has done alot of renovations so it looks fresher and they added a new pool, updated the children`s playground area. WIFI free wifi in public areas Ala carte dinners Riu`s have a program that you have to line up and arrange your ala carte dinners at a separate desk. They have two sittings 630pm and 830pm. This person then advises you whats available for the next 48 hours. Therefore every 2 days of your vacation is spent lining up trying to book a table. If you are only there for 3 days then you might not be able to make a reservation they dont allow advance reservations and sometimes they all full. This is what has happened to me the last 2 times i visited. I was offered the Steakhouse at 9pm , it was ok. The buffet is plentiful but its a huge buffet very noisy. The beach is amazing the RIU entertainment staff during the day & at night are very good probably the best out of any hotel chain in the Caribbean & Mexico. If you have young kids or Teens go to RIU your kids will have fun. More>
