Rigid, unbending resort rules

Quick review... Map of resort shows only one public bathroom. This bathroom was very far away from the beach, pool, and some bars etc. That became very uncomfortable and annoying. Mini bar in the room only gets filled every other day. Don't ask for anything extra or different, you'll get strung along and lied to until you give up. Very condescending front desk staff. Restaurants do not take reservations, they are first come first serve BUT...once the restaurant gets filled they are done. They do not re-seat those still waiting so you are forced to eat at the buffet for every meal unless you were lucky enough to get in during the first round of seating. Can clearly see that it is an old resort, updates, painting etc desperately needed. Will end on a positive note...love Jamaica and it's people!

Questionable RIU Standard

My wife and I have stayed at numerous RIU properties and have always been satisfied. However this stay was doesn't even come close to previous stays. The cleanliness of the pools and the lounging chairs was deplorable. The courtesy of the staff and the willingness to help was absolutely a disgrace.

The Club Riu Hotel in Negril was an amazing time for us. The swim up bar was so fun with great bartenders!! The beach is close to the pools, plently of space, limited lines at bars and even the restaurants at night. All the staff was pleasant, often singing and very definitely helpful and accommodating. My only minor issues would be the hand sanitizing stations were always empty, the gym didn't have cleaning wipes for equipment, and we had minor struggles with the shower head. Overall, nothing worth worrying about!! We had the perfect combination of fun and relaxing at the Riu!

Pool closed at 6pm. Everyone on the beach was selling drugs including employees. The food was the worse than anywhere I ever stayed. The excursions we did 4 were not anything like what we were told. Getting in and out of the country was a nightmare.

Visit the hotel rui last week of March. The hotel was very well maintained and clean. Our room was very large.with good quality fixtures and fittings including free mini bar stocked daily. Food was great with four restaurants to choose from and buffet restaurant. Asian restaurant was very good. Beach was clean and beach bar was very handy for refreshments. Receptionist Nayo was great very friendly and helpful. Overall great holiday with every thing 5 star.

My husband and I just returned from Riu Negril and I wanted to give a straight to the point review. Pros: +Food was good with lots of choices. +Hotel itself was very clean and updated. +Employees of Riu were helpful and welcoming +Beach is beautiful of course and clean Cons: +If you happen to book with Apple vacations the bus best transfer people would tell you, you need to tip more money or that it wasn't enough. (Apparently a $5 tip is low?!) I definitely tip for good service but when you haven't done anything to earn extra I have a problem with tipping extra. +On the beach there would be a drug dealer every 6 feet, (On the resort premises) constantly whistling and heckling you to buy drugs. I fully understand that's why some people vacation there but it was a bit ridiculous. +The hotel offers free use of stand-up paddle boards and other water activities but if you ask on the beach they will try to charge you cash, even though it's free when you go to the counter. Would we return you might ask, I would say no. I don't regret going there because we did have a nice time but I could see people getting it taken advantage of if you don't understand what you're walking into.

Fantastic hotel

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Riu Negril in Jamaica. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and a great choice. The location is perfect, right on the beach and beautiful views. The rooms are really comfortable and spacious. The entertainment team are great fun.

Great vacation, awesome weather, RIU Negril All Inclusive the best!

Spent 8 days at Riu Negril, a total of 3 couples! For my husband and myself this was our 5th time staying at this Riu, the resort is always updated from the previous year! The food was great, evening entertainment was better than the previous year, the Steel Band was top notch!

6th time at this Resort-The best of Negril

We have visited Negril 6 times in the past 10 years and will ONLY stay at Club Riu. The staff is amazing. The beach is amazing (we do bring bug spray and plenty of sunscreen). The peddlers on the beach are very respectful once you let them know you aren't interested, they will remember you and won't bother you. The food is SUPERB. The bartenders are fun! The activities staff is top-notch. There is so much to do within a few minutes of the resort. Check out town (we have only gone during the day). The shops along the beach are nice to have close and the vendors are much nicer than the market in town. Our only disappointment, since we have been here 6 times we were hoping for an upgrade to our room. But alas, our room was spotless and well stocked every day. Thank you again for another WONDERFUL vacation. You never disappoint.
