Stayed in May 2017, so review a little late. Chose this hotel as close to airport, planes flying overhead do not bother us. Room: very comfortable but open plan bathroom with bath open to bedroon unusual but ok. Food: buffet was good, always found something tasty to eat, didn't use speciality. Make sure you go to the Riu Montego Bay jerk chicken hut on the beach next door, chop chop serves the tastiest jerk. Beach:this is what lets the hotel down, not the best at all. Best thing is NO smoking on beach, designated smoking area to left of beach. Staff: always busy, big yah mon to Paul on the beach who took care of our drinks. Entertainment: low key at the palace, upbeat next door at the Reggae Reggae and the Montego Bay. Overall: first class hotel but let down by poor beach, will return again to Jamaica but will go back to Negril. Plus when it rains, boy does it rain.

Arrived on August 27th for 14th amazing days .my husband kevin and I arrived in hotel with pat and bill cunningham. Pat is my husband s sister.This was to be a special holiday as we were celebrating our Ruby wedding. On our special day we had breakfast delivered to our room after wich we made our way to our special place on the beach .The sunbeds ,trees,and all where we were seated was decorated with balloons and banners and flowers. JoJo and Dr fun and cash and so many more of the entertainment crew made our day .the staff in the buffet in the evening went all out for us also .we could've have spent a more memorable, happy holiday with fantastic family and been looked after so much .If anyone has a celebration to be as great as ours and one never to forget ,spend it in a Riu hotel they are first class .especially the palace in Jamaica !!!

Beautiful resort with the best employees around! Will go back!

The resort was absolutely beautiful! Grounds were impeccably maintained. We never had to search for or reserve chairs at the pool or beach. The entire staff was great. Entertainment staff worked so hard and they were all so friendly! Enjoyed watching Cash dance and the Ladies Moya and Barbie were so sweet and friendly! All of the barstaff were fun and entertaining. Waitstaff remembered your orders from day to day. The buffet was really really good. Best I've ever had at a resort. Lots of options for everyone. We also really enjoyed the Italian restaurant...it was our favorite of the restaurants. I've seen some complaints about rooms being too hot or having too much moisture. Our room was not hot at all. We had a suite with two ceiling fans and they did wonders for keeping the room cool (and my mother and I are both VERY hot natured). As far as moisture....Jamaica is humid. But so is my hometown so that wasn't unusual to me. I guess some people just aren't familiar with real humidity. We were upgraded to a suite when we checked in (I'm an adult that took this trip with my parents). We had tons of room. If you are in an ocean front room, they will have to bring in an extra bed if you book for two beds. It is a real bed though...not a rollaway. I slept very comfortably on my side of the room which was very large. I can see how privacy could be an issue. After reading some reviews, we requested a room with a privacy curtain. This curtain is on the bedroom side of the bathtub (which is totally open). The shower has an opaque door on it and the toilet is in a room (water closet). We were worried about the layout before we got there, but it turned out being okay. Without the curtain, it would have been very difficult to get ready in the evenings. However, the shower is HUGE. My dad often got dressed in the shower after drying off, because it was more private and lots of room. The views from this resort are absolutely stunning. I highly recommend ocean front rooms if you are debating. We also used the free paddle boats and kayaks. The resort isn't huge so it's easy to walk all over it and it's also super easy to access the other two resorts if you want. We went to most of the evening parties. Only problem we had was that most of them are outdoors at the beach or the outdoor bar. It was super hot since we were there in August, so it was hard to really do too much dancing. But we sure did our best! I was traveling with a group that has stayed at many all-inclusive resorts from every luxury brand and they all agreed this could be the new favorite.

beautiful wonderful stay
