Great all-inclusive vacation

The staff at the Montego Bay Riu Palace was excellent. From our initial check-in to check-out the staff couldn't have been friendlier. The restaurants were quite good for an all-inclusive our favorite was Krystals. The beach and main pool were well kept with plenty of seating. The rooms are spacious if you get the chance stay in an ocean view room. There are plenty of activities hosted by the entertainment staff and you'll have a great time. More>

WASTE OF MONEY

Stayed at RUI Palace Montego, Bay 12/12/16 to 12/18/16 along with 11 others. First of all, they don't allow you to use more than one washcloth and towel per day so if you shower multiple times per day especially when you are coming back off excursions/tours, getting out the pool and changing for dinner you have to keep using the same washcloth and towel which I never do even at home. I called the front desk and asked for new ones and they were always sending someone that never showed up, luckily I pack my own for backup. Secondly, the RUI Palace is the adults only section which you pay a few hundred dollars more to stay than the side that is for families traveling with kids but I felt like it was a pure waste of extra money because of all the limitations. I have never known any hotel establishment in all my years of traveling to shut down the pools everyday at 6pm almost like corporate work hour scheduling. If you go out on excursions, touring or shopping you get back most times around the time they closing the pool here you will not get to use them. Regular pools close usually 9, 10, 11 ish. Adults only pools should have extended hours or at least regular pools hours. They claim because the staff gets off around that time but as much revenue that generate, they didn't want to pay staff to keep that pool open to accommodate those that would like to swim past 6pm. I got kicked out the pool along with others who were swimming past 6pm. was told to use the ocean. The manager tool me they would keep open till 8 after I and others complained but that was a lie. Third, most of the women staff has very nasty and rude attitudes, not people friendly. Fourth, the only 24hour bar was the one outside by the closed pools which is not good because if you sit outside the mosquitoes will eat you up. The indoor bar closes at 12. This is so backwards but another way the resort saves money. Fifth, not everyone wants to sit outside to eat. You have no choice but to eat outdoors there is not inside seating to dine so the flies constantly attack. The only indoor dining was the specialty restaurants that you have to have reservations for but they only set up for approximately 30 people if that for each of the two timeframes. Impossible to get reservations for that. They are so stingy with the food. I didn't like my entree so I asked for something else at the Steakhouse, they told me no because of the one entree per person policy(ok but this is all inclusive) had to wait till breakfast to get hot food because room service such and the 24 hour snackbar is outdoor, flies and drunks playing with the food. The one good thing I can say is the men are nice and very eager to assist. I feel that I will not use RUI properties again, they are to unaccommodating. For the money that you pay to stay adults only, it is a waste because of the limitations they have set. I felt as if I was at a childproof facility. I would like the 400 extra hundred dollars back that you pay to stay adults only. Also for all the other eleven that traveled with me. But I know it won't happen. More>

Excellent and totally chilled

Checking was a breeze and the champagne was most welcome after an 8 hour flight. Cases were taken straight to room. We stayed in Room 2023, room was bright, spacious, and most importantly spotless. Had a lovely view of the pool and sea, although it will be even nicer when the top of the palm tree isn't in the way lol. First time going adult only and it was great. 3 pools, 2 with swim up bars. Plenty of sundbeds around pool and beach, absolutely no need to reserve one. Public areas are are spotless, and the staff cannot do enough for you. Reservations for the Steak House, & Krystal resturants were hard to come by. We did not try the Italian as we had heard that the food was not up to standard. We did book the private dinner on the beach was at an extra charge but well worth it, the food was excellent and so was the service. Buffet restaurant was nice, and was never over busy and there were never any queues. Todd was our waiter from most of the holiday and his service was excellent. Aqua Bar serves snacks day and most of the night. There was a rule that the food must be eaten there but a number of people did take food from there, when I tried to take a sandwich from there I was stopped by a member of staff when I explained that I had seen lots of people do it she became annoyed that I had questioned her decision, when I said ok and left the sandwich she said to a member of staff "see what I have to put up". I did think of going to reception to complain but she was the only member of staff I can say I encounted that was rude. In the evening the Aqua bar hosts a number of the party nights. The bar a reception has live music most nights, and is good fun. Zodian, Nathshe & Vassham are excellent cocktail waitresses and again nothing is too much trouble for them, Free Wi-Fi and no smoking Can wait to go back More>

A superb all-inclusive holiday destination. Excellent hotel, service, food, drinks, facilities and weather. A great team of waiters who make every meal a treat. As a rule I don't like buffets, on this occassion I must say it was great with fresh food being cooked so not the usual luke warm, picked over, bland looking offerings. 4 speciality restaurants provide the alternative dinning options and 3 of these make for a lovely evening meal, the 4th, a steak bar is great, just a little more relaxed. The resort is spotlessly clean and rooms prepared to a very high standard. The animation team really do a great job and make the evenings fun as well. There are so many good things to say I'll report the two things I was less keen on. The hotel has a smoking policy keeping an area for smokers which most guests adhered to. There were some however who didn't and smoked on the non-smoking area of the beach. It was disappointing that the hotel staff didn't enforce this rule so on occassion we had the pleasure of someone's smoke which I hated. The hotel is very near the airport so has planes flying over, quite low, throughout the day. It was not ideal but should not put you off going to this hotel. More>

Nearly perfect !!!

Bar staff at the aqua bar are really good including oral and Paul and the daytime staff at the buffet are great but it's the small things that make a 5 star special . . I'm here at the minute 18th June 2016 it's been 2days now and our mini bar hasn't been properly stocked despite bringing this up with reception a couple of times ... The daytime entertainment crew deserve a mention for the hard work they put in ... The buffet puts the steakhouse and Italian in the shade so we're gonna stick with that ...it's a shame al the staff arent on the same page as most things are great !!! More>
