Beach close to resort. Had to walk too far to get up to main lobby, food and entertainment. Big and I mean big disappointment was no coffee makers in room. Had to walk 1/2 mile just to walk up to the sports bar for coffee in the morning. Even though there were signs everywhere for no smoking at the pools.....several smoking cigs and pot right in front of the lifeguards. The lifeguards would allow some people to use rafts in the pool and others couldn't. The front reception desk was staffed with the rudest people I have ever met. Entertainment was lacking. Always started late. After supper until the show started about 930pm, was boring, nothing to do but go to the sports bar and try to cool off. Staff at the bars were nice. Staff in the buffet were the highlight of the trip, very friendly and helpful. Room was kept nice and clean. We usually use the RIU resorts....thinking we may change that from now on. More>

Worst RIU we've been to. Liked our room and housekeeping was good. Only restock fridge every 2 days with 4 cans of Warm Redstripe beer. Diluted drinks which we expected. Food was not very good in any of the restaurants. Best was the chicken shack on the beach. Service was very inconsistent. Some of staff HAPPY and helpful. However many were rude and seemed as though they did not want to be there. Especially in lobby lounge. Water in pools ( Gross ) ! Beach was mediocre. Lots of seaweed and look out for the fleas. I counted almost a hundred bites when I got back home. Itched for weeks. Could go on.... But not really worth my time. The other RIU was much nicer. More>

We stayed at the Riu, Negril, March 31 to April 7, 2016. When we walked into the hotel lobby we immediately noticed the beautiful view of the ocean. Check in went smoothly and we made our way to our room. We were in building two which was a perfect location as it was the only building with a pool in the courtyard. The main pool was further down and and hosted a variety of daily activities. We had an ocean view room that was small but clean and comfortable thanks to Paulette our housekeeper. There were cold drinks in the fridge and they were replenished every second day. We went to the buffet for the majority of our meals because the food was so good. We tried one a la cart (Asian) which was also very good. We were concerned about mosquitoes but only saw three within the week. However there were minuscule black bugs (sand fleas?) which did bite so I would recommend bug spray. Because we were in a bay, there wasn't very much wind and the water was calm. The beach was great but I didn't like the water for swimming. There were patches of plant life and my husband was stung by something, probably a sea urchin. I would recommend wearing water shoes. There were vendors on the beach but a simple no thank you was accepted. There were security staff patrolling the beach. All hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and everyone spoke English. We were confused by the no tipping policy so we inquired about it. We were told that tipping wasn't mandatory but very much appreciated so we tipped the same way we tipped at other resorts. If you want to hear an amazing singer go to the lobby bar in the evening. The bartender has an amazing voice. There was a good band in the courtyard but the stage shows were fair. Overall we had a fun and relaxing vacation. More>

My fiancé and I traveled here in late April and it was our first trip to Jamaica. We have stayed at multiple all-inclusives before in Mexico and Punta Cana but this is by far the best service we have had. From the maid service to the bartenders the staff was incredible. Everywhere we went we were greeted with a smile. The beach was in pristine condition. Many places advertise crystal clear water but this water truly was crystal clear with the most beautiful blue colors and rock free sand. We spent most days at the beach( Ricky was at the best beach bartender!) and one day at the pool. We never had trouble getting a chair like other all inclusive resorts which made the stay more relaxing. As far as the food, similar to other resorts there is a daily reservation line in the lobby. Some restaurants required formal attire but we did not attend those. Our favorite were the Italian and the buffet. Everywhere had exceptional service. Entertainment was truly enjoyable. Spotlight kept us laughing all day! The entertainers worked hard to make sure everyone was involved and they had activities for all ages through the day and night. We participated in the flip cup tournament which was fun! One day it rained so everyone was in the lobby and the crew kept everyone happily entertained for hours, it was much appreciated. The room was in great condition and the air conditioner worked well. They were cleaned daily and we never had a problem contacting the front desk if we needed something. All the building are close walking distance to the beach and restaurants which made it easy to run back to the room when needed. We only did one excursion which was the Booze Cruise ($50 all inclusive drinks to Rick's Cafe, Margaritaville, snorkeling, and other popular destination) and it was a GREAT time. The crew was so fun and we learned about the history of Jamaica while enjoying ourselves and it ended with a dance party that everyone got involved in. Overall, we highly recommend this resort for the service and the beach. The food and drinks could be improved but it was the most relaxing vacation we have been on and we will definitely be back to Riu Clubhotel Negril! More>

Nice hotel, friendly staff

Stayed here recently with some friends. Not been before and was a bit concerned No need! Refurb has been well done and rooms are well appointed Best bit was all the staff were friendly and concerned with your welfare. And I mean all staff not just 'front of house'. A real asset for RUI. Food variable but generally good, beer and mixers/cocktails fine but the wine is undrinkable and RUI have been told often enough Loved the smaller pools and the beach. Main pool is the party pool and ok if that's your thing. Did get a bit scuzzy late in the day Used the hobie cats and kayaks and these were good. Did some fishing via a beach vendor and well organised and we all caught fish Evening entertainment was not the best but Paul in the bar who serves and sings at the same time is a real asset. Top man. Nice chilled holiday More>
