Great stay.

Lovely welcome on arrival. Staff from reception to cleaners were polite and respectful. Food was good with plenty of variety and the service was also good. The room was superb and was cleaned regularly by the staff who made every effort to ensure you were made to feel comfortable for your whole holiday. The management were also seen to be in view and answer any queries you may have and ensure the food and service was up to standard. Would and will return without hesitation even though we have stayed here twice before in Negril. More>

Awesome hotel Arrived in the dark so wasnt till the next day i fell in love with this place! very clean and safe with its own private beach. Everything was literally free! Tips go a long way which i dont mind as we had our mini bar stocked to the max for £6! normally its stocked every 2 days but i fell in love with the red stripes! A trong smell of weed is present most of the day and night but who cares its jamaica and i must admit i bought some and smoked it most evenings on my balcony! little tip is to ask for an non smoking room as they are the 1st couple of blocks! saves you walking for a quarter of a mile to breakfast! Food was 10/10 for me! different most evenings and had a choice of 3 restaraunts that you need to book 3 days in advance! Weather is Hot and rain everyday for 15 minutes which was refreshing! Alot of kids but we didnt mind as it created a great atmosphere! The sea is clean and clear but be careful of stringrays (little ones) and sea urchens More>

This Hotel Riu is ok , clean, food is good, beach is nice, not a lot to do around this area but overall had a good time, suppose to be renovated this year , and then it would be a 4*. Hotel grounds are nice and short drive to shopping in Negril. More>

Lots of activities, very safe, AWESOME food.....downsides would be no bathroom by the pool, and internet was very poor. From not having a bathroom by the pool all our swimsuits and towels smelled SO bad like pee, we switched to Ocean swimming instead. Once by the ocean, there is no drink service...so that was all kind of a downer. They cleaned pool daily but no chemicals? Layout is also kinda messed up for getting to the main area. You had to walk way around everything to get to the main area. More>

Family Vacation

Spent two nights at Club Riu, Negril with family and friends in October 2014... check in was okay, but there was no parking lot, so we had to park on the round about driveway that leads to the lobby, which at the time seemed like a better idea than parking on the road side, but we ended up getting robbed (someone stole the grill out of the front of our car!!). Food was okay, not the best and the rooms were very outdated (large back television and 2 beds put together for a king size bed)... we were told that renovations were scheduled to take place so hopefully the rooms have improved. Other than that, we had a good time, the pools were clean and the jerk chicken on the beach was fantastic, entertainment staff were very good, there was a Michael Jackson Show the first night of our stay and it was really great! Didn't get a chance to check out the club though, because it opened at 11 and we were too tired from a long day of swimming. Average Hotel with average food but the stay was okay because i had my family and friends with me... More>
