For starters...my friends and I selected this resort based off the comments we read here. Unfortunately, our experience was far spectacular. There were eight of us. The Rui Palace is a mediocre resort. I would not recommend it to any of my friends. For several reasons.... 1. When I arrived, my room wasn't ready. But that wasn't a problem. I waited about 2 hours before my room was available. The sheets on the bed were damp, so I request a linen change. Housekeeping took care of it immediately. My room had a mildew smell to it. Maintenance cleaned the air conditioning filter and we opened the balcony door to let fresh air in. After a couple of hours, the room smelled better. I also had to exchange a broken iron. 2.The food was decent, but nothing to brag about. The special dining areas at night requires a reservation. Because of limited seating and some restaurants not being open daily, I didn't get the opportunity to indulge in any of them. The buffet and snack bar were the places I dined. Saturday is Jamaican Day at the resort and we were told that they go all out. We would have the opportunity to try several Jamaican cuisines at dinner. That wasn't the case. Food was limited at night. Only the snack bar and room service. I didn't order anything from room service. They only had about 6 things to choose from. The same 6 items for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The snack bar at night (about about 11pm) had food dried out food. Nothing was fresh. 3. For the resort to be an adults only resort, there were way...too many rules. For example, where you can eat. There are bars and tables everywhere. But eating is restricted at the bar, you can only eat at the snack bar or the buffet area. 4. The resort lacked activities during the day. I'm not sure if that was the intent of the resort because it was for adults only. If that's the case, I would only recommend it for the older population that wants to lay out in the beach and relax. The pool closes at six and there isn't much to do after that. There is a nightly party from about 8-11pm. 5. Lastly, I would suggested guests not to stay on the first floor. The noise level from the nightly party is high. 6. When I paid for an all inclusive resort, I didn't expect it to come with watered down liquor. I'm not a heavy drinker at all and not once get a catch a buzz from their drinks. The drinks I had during my excursions was the real deal! I've traveled all around the world and this is by far the my worst experience. More>

My stay at the Riu Palace. The property is nice. The rooms need a little polishing in my room the walls were not polished. The food was okay and so was the buffet the need more options when it comes to the dinner buffet since you have to make reservations for the other restaurants. I really also do not like the resorts making customers wear wristbrands because when you leave the property you have a wristband showing where your staying. One night fellow agents and I walked to the Riu next door to visit the nightclub which was really awesome and their paid entertainment kept the party going. I did notice at the bar outside there was a massive roach walking on the bar so of course I decide not to drink there. Beware if you are walking on the beach back to the Riu palace next door do not walk by yourself I made that mistake since it was 3 am and my coworkers did not wanna leave. So on my way back to the hotel its a short walk less than a mile I heard a man yelling at me I couldn't see him but I heard him he was trying to sell me something. I literally ran until I saw the guard standing at the beach entrance to Riu Palace. Now the reason why I decided to run is because I'm a woman by myself and in another country and I couldn't see the man. That situation just did not sit well with me. Next day I woke up to find bugs in my bag. I've never seen this type before they were all white bugs and very small all over my clothes so I decide to call the front desk there solution was for me to blow dry my clothes OK seriously that's your only option not to dry clean my clothes for free but for me to blow dry them. So I literally grab everything shook out all of the items and through them in a plastic bag and tied the bag very tight. So this is why this resort is receiving a two stars. The food, the rooms, the bugs in my bag and also on bars. More>

Visited at the beginning of June 2016. Arrived at the hotel which is 10 minutes from the airport, whilst checking in we were given a cold glass of champagne and also told that we had a free upgrade, what a start to our holiday. We were then taken to our room and the chap explained everything to us. The room was amazing everything you could think of and exceptionally clean. We overlooked the pool and the sea. The food, drinks, service is all out of this world. The people made this holiday for us with a special mention to Omaine, Ryan and Dominic. Whilst laying on the beach you are offer water, cocktails, etc. and at the swim up bars you don't even have to wait to finish your drink and they are pouring you another one. Evening entertainment great and really enjoyed the dancing. Jamaica and it's people - I love you X More>

Best vacation in my life

The adult only Rui was amazing. The rooms are very pretty and immaculate. The service is outstanding. From the time you step onto the property you are treated like Royalty. The staff was very accommodating. There is always something to do and someone to do it with. I love that the staff get the party started for you. They start the games they get it pumped for you. You always have someone to dance with or just have a conversation with. OMG they can dance. Food is pretty good. Drinks were awesome. (Bob Marley and Mojito’s) excellent. I don’t think I ever want to stay anywhere else other than the Rui. I can’t wait to get back this was my first time and I keep telling friends and family lets go I can’t WAIT TO GET BACK. It can’t get any better and if it does I don’t want it this was everything. My best vacation and birthday EVER!! More>

Really nice trip

Me and my girlfriend visited the Riu Palace in Montego Bay June 2016. As soon as we came out of the airport it was raining, which we didn't expect. However after a bit of researched we realised that this time of year is the rainy season in the Caribbean. Although it was the raining season it never rained for no longer than 30 minutes and temperatures were always really good but very humid at times. The hotel is located roughly 10 minutes from the the airport, and yes you can hear the planes go over the hotel really loud for about 10 seconds, if that but it didn't bother me at all. It happened about 5 times a day. Personally if didn't take anything away from this excellent hotel experience. Upon arrival our suitcases were taken by the porter and wear were given two key cards for our room. We were told we had access to the neighbouring hotel but they didnt have access to our. We could use all their facilities except the rooms. So this included all bars, breakfast, lunch, dinner, pools, attended any entertainment and also the night club which opens at 11pm. The entertainment at Riu Montego Bay is for a much larger crowd in comparison to Riu Palace and includes dancing, singing, a "Grease" play, Michael Jackson tribute and reggae rock show and others. At the Riu Place entertainment included dancing tutorials, a live band, a couples competitions and karaoke. There was never a problem finding space because this hotel is not overcrowded. Once we got to our room we saw it has a minibar with soft drinks and water changed every 2 days and an alcohol dispenser which had rum, tequila, gin and vodka and could be changed if you manage to get through it. Our room also had a whirlpool bath tub and a great view (room 3048). The cleaners do a wonderful job and will clean your room perfectly everyday if you put the green sign on your door. After unpacking we attended dinner which is from 6-10pm. The selection is very very good. I feel that there is always something for everyone. Breakfast is from 7-10am whilst lunch is from 12-3pm. I have never eaten so much on holiday. There is Jamaican cusine such as jerk chicken, jerk pork, dumpling, rice and peas, ackee and salt fish, plantain, curry shell fish, curry goat, festival, brown stew chicken, calaloo, jerk lamb as well as other foods like fried rice, pizza, garlic breads, steak, prawns, breaded prawns, squid and so much more. There are also restaurants you can book such as krystal, steakhouse, italian and japanese but I felt the buffet was so much better. The staff always top and your drinks and often remember which drinks are your favourite. The is a Burger King just outside the hotel and a grocery and pharmacy store also. With a 10 minute drive to you can to KFC, wendies and dominoes too. Our favourite drinks at the hotel were strawberry daiquiri, liquid marijuana and bob marley. During the day the hotel staff entertain you at the pool with volleyball and they also come round with drinks of your choice from the bar. Turf and Chicken were excellent with their hospitality skills and made everyone feel welcome. Excursions we done were visiting Bob Marleys house at 9 mile town which we up in the country and took roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes. We did a boat trip which had a buffet to Ricks Cafe in Negril where you can do cliff jumping into the ocean. We also did horse riding and the horses also swim in the water which was cool. We visited Dunns River Falls and climbed the waterfall. Finally we did some zip wiring and bob sledding in Ocho Rios which included a meal at the restaurant.. Per person all the excursions came to roughly 300 dollars and were booked through our Thomson rep. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody going to Montego Bay and would definitely return in the future. The service and exceptional and that no exaggeration. Special staff mentions go to Turf, Chicken, JoJo, Lisa, Dj Kool, Mr.Jerky, Ryan and Andre. More>
