RIU Palace
Btischr,
Thu Feb 16 11:38:41 EST 2017
We were relocated here after our originally booked resort didn't open on time. The resort was beautiful and all the staff were friendly and helpful. When you stay at the RIU Palace you also get access to the two other RIU resorts on either side of the property. The RIU Reggae makes amazing chicken jerk on the beach for lunch and was generally a little more lively during the day than the Palace. Overall our stay was great with the exception of one issue. I only bring this up for the sake of my fellow younger women travelers to keep in mind. One afternoon when we were at the Reggae my sister had maybe a little too much champagne and one of the lifeguards attempted to pull her into the bathroom with him. When her friend mentioned it to another staff member the response we got was that she shouldn't drink so much in a foreign country so she can protect herself. This incident was enough to ruin at least that day for me but thankfully she was ok just upset. I feel something like this should never happen at a resort where you should feel safe at least from staff members. This was the last time we went to the Reggae. Even though the resort is supposed to be a safe zone just keep an eye out for each other.

I want to go back !

A Do Nothing Resort

The Riu Palace Jamaica is a resort geared towards people who do nothing, except eat and lounge around all day and night. The Pros 1) Great Buffet...There is a decent selection of food and the quality is quite high as well. Always ample amount of seating, with very good service. The food at the specialty restaurants is very good too. Pretty delicious Jerk Chicken during the day. 2) Service... The staff at the resort for the most part are attentive and they genuinely seem to care how you are enjoying your stay at the Riu Palace. They do appreciate your tips and will provide a higher level of service to those who do tip. 3) Cleanliness... A very clean resort. 4) Bars... A good selection of alcohol. They have 12 yr Appleton Estate Reserve Rum, Barcardi Rum, Jack Daniels, Smirnoff Vodka, Baileys, etc. Some good international selections, with some drinks with real fruit. Cons 1) Beach... Rocky and small. It is man made. Snorkeling is non-existent. Activity is non-existent and be careful of the tourists who will tell you to stop bumping a volleyball around on the beach. 2) Rooms... Loud and noisy. Constant hallway noise. You can hear people entering and leaving there rooms because of the door slamming shut or people talking in the room next door. If you want a good night sleep, good luck, it will be more peaceful on the beach during the day. 3) Specialty Restaurants... People lining up 30 minutes prior to the restaurant opening. No beepers for quests. If you want to eat at a restaurant you have to wait at the restaurant for a table opening. 4) Activities... Virtually non-existent. No water volleyball (only had the net up once during the 14 days), no beach volleyball at the Riu Palace, and if you go next door the staff play and make a paying guest watch till the next game. Do not go here if you like doing anything other than lying on your butt all day and eating. 5) Gym... Tiny and very little choice of equipment. 6) Night Entertainment... They constantly play 1970's music. We were there for New Years Eve and the party was non-existent past 12:30 am. The worst party ever, Do not go here for New Years if you like to party and have fun. 7) Room Service... Terrible. I phoned room service two times. The first time I used the service was on New Years Eve at 1:00 am. I was told to phone back in 5 minutes. I did and then from then on I got a busy signal. The second time I phoned I ordered a club sandwich and chips. It took over an hour for the food to get to my room. The sandwich was cold and there were no chips. 8) Washrooms... No towels or paper towel to dry hands or face. Disgusting. 9) Atmosphere... Different music being played all over resort. You could be sitting outside at the lobby bar and you could hear the music competing at the lobby bar with the music from the beach bar. In conclusion, the Riu Palace Jamaica has a great buffet with many food options and a decent alcohol choice. The staff provide very good service and the resort is quite clean. It is also only a $10.00 to $15.00 US cab ride to the Hip Strip if you want to get away from the resort. However, the beach is absolutely terrible. rooms are quite noisy with lousy room service. Activity at the hotel is virtually non-existent during the day. Poor management of the specialty restaurants, no one wants to wait at a restaurant for a table to open up. There are far better choices for a vacation destination. But if you like to do nothing except eat and sleep, then go here.

Amazing vacation!! Chill with a thrill!!

What a trip! From the moment we arrived we were greated by friendly staff, champaign and smiles. Our room was very clean and modern. The hotel was very clean and well taken care of. The service was off the charts amazing. We felt very welcome. When we arrived it was raining so we went to the snack bar and had some beef patties and white wine with a beach view. It was very romantic. Entertainment in the evenings was really fun. They had karaoke, reggae night, retro night and more. The atmosphere was very relaxing but fun at the same time. The food was amazing at the buffet and at the Italian restaurant. My lobster at the steak house was a bit small, but still good. It's better to arrive a bit early to the a la Carts because one night we had to wait 40 mins to get into the steak house, but we just drank wine and enjoyed each other's company. For those who smoke, they were limited to certain areas on the beach and the outside lobby. ( no smoking on balconys). For those that like long Beach walks, the beach is short but beautiful, but you can walk on the beaches of the other resorts too. Overall, I would highly recommend this resort. I've never felt so relaxed anywhere else and will definatly go back. For those that like a more wild beach party, you can walk 2 mins down the beach to the riu regae. You will have access to both the other riu's but they can't come to the palace. The resorts are close enough together to offer lots of variety. For those of you thinking of coming to this resort, I say.. Ya Mon!!

Great Resort but will not be returning

This is a fantastic place. The staff is what makes this place great. The food and cocktails are great. I went for my third visit in late October. The resort is under new management again. They no longer take dinner reservations. You line up when the restaurant opens and wait until they have space for you. This is not what I expect from a 5 star adults only RIU resort. Once you get in the restaurants the food and service is great. Unfortunately this change has made me look at visiting other resorts.
