Loved it - Staff are brilliant

I'm not one to usually write reviews but I felt obliged to for the Riu Palace Tropical Bay. The staff were brilliant throughout our time there and really go out of there way to make an effort to speak to you and make you feel welcome. The beaches are stunning the only downside is the tropical weather which is usually a little unpredictable but that can't be helped! It is tropical weather after all! The food was great - Breakfast, lunch and dinner with a great variety of choices for everyone and again the waiters/waitresses were lovely and really friendly and good fun. Entertainment wise the hotel offer a wide range of activities/events for the guests - the dancers in particular were amazing they definitely deserve some credit! All in all I'd definitely recommend the Riu Palace whether it is for a family or a couples holiday!

Beautiful Beach

We arrived at MBJ on Sunday August 6th along with several other planes. The customs lines were long and hot. It took over an hour to get thru. Which is no fun with cranky kiddos!!! Our personal driver was waiting to whisk us away. He stopped along the way for Red Stripe for the adults and juice boxes for the kids. Next stop was to a roadside jerk stand. If you have the time on your trip ask your driver to stop at Mr. Biggs. Best jerk I've ever tasted. Once arriving at the resort check in was a breeze. The employees behind the desk was very helpful and seemed happy to help. We was given a free upgrade to ocean front. The room may be a little dated but it was clean and the air conditioner works well. House keeping did a really good job keeping the room cleaned and towels and amenities stocked. The mini fridge was stocked daily. The pools are small and get a lil dirty by the end of the day. We didn't spend much time in the pool. Why would you want to when you have such a gorgeous beach. That's really why we go to Negril. We love the beach. The color of the water is just breath taking. Don't be offended by the locals walking down the beach, a simple no thanks is all they need. Just give respect!!! The bartenders at the pool were amazing. They truly seemed to enjoy their job. Always serving with a smile. And the drinks are delicious and strong. Mr. Owayne at the bar is so kind. He always has a smile and seems to enjoy his job. We only ate at the buffet so I can't comment on the other restaurants. The buffet food was good and lots to choose from. No one in our group of 5 left hungry. I would recommend this resort and definitely would return.

Best Beach Ever

We just returned from RIU Palace Tropical Bay in Negril, Jamaica. It was our eleventh trip to Jamaica, our second to this resort, Upon arrival we had been assigned an upper floor, but due to my husbands disability, Sheena worked to find us a ground floor close to everything. We were so grateful! Our room was comfortable, but a little cold for my husbands liking. Cassandra brought us a blanket, and all was well. As with all RIU properties, the food was excellent. We love the buffet and only visited a restaurant on one occasion. In the buffet dining room, Andre took care of us each night, and was jovial and prompt. Entertainment was okay. The Silver Birds were not as good as I remember. It seemed there was more dancing and a lot less steel drum music. The beach in Negril is the best, and there is always plenty of shade if needed. We would recommend this resort, and hope to return soon!

Nice holiday

This hotel is one of the smaller riu hotels but still very good. Entertainment team are really good and work their socks off. Food is very good and drinks are the real macoy. Staff in the restaurants are excellent, nothing is too much trouble. The beach is lovely with lots of fish to be seen. Beware of the stingrays as there are quite a few coming into the designated swimming area. Saying that they normally just swim straight you they are amazing to watch. The only thing we don't like is not having the freedom to just wonder out the hotel for a wonder. The taxi drivers from the hotel are very good and will arrange trips for you , they are a must as there are fantastic places to visit. One big gripe are the men constantly wandering up and down the beach trying to sell marajauna ,all day ever day. It really gets on your nerves after a couple of days . You pay all this money to have a nice relaxing holiday to constantly be disturbed be these ignorant men. Just ignore them if you can and they soon leave you alone. Don't know if I would go back as I feel there are a lot of lovely places to visit in Europe with the freedom to do as you please. Also everywhere you go they want tipping,this is not in the hotel but on trips, even though you have paid to go into places they still want to bleed you dry for more money. YS falls was the only place we found not to keep hasteling you for a tip.

Perfect relaxing holiday

This hotel is the perfect place to unwind and relax. The people at the reception welcoming you with open arms. We booked 2 rooms with partial ocean view but there was no problem providing us with 2 rooms with a beautiful ocean view so we could have the 2 rooms next to each other. The rooms are spotless and kept like that every day. The people at the resort are very nice and helpful. They are really doing their upper best to make you feel welcome and give you the best holiday ever. The bartenders at the pool bar are fantastic and a special thanks to Gray who was walking up and down from the bar to the beach in the heat to provide the guests with the lovely drinks. In spite of the many guests at the resort they do their best to remember you, even by your name! And then the entertainment people. Incredible effort they make to keep you entertained. We were lucky we were there during Independence Day .....one big party. We most definitely will return. Thank you so much people at the RUI palace tropical bay!
