Beautiful beach !

Being assigned a room on the third floor at first seemed impossible but our room and location were well worth the climb ! The room and view were beautiful The mini bar and fridge were well stocked but we barely dented our supplies since there is so much food and drinks to be had at the buffet, jerk chicken hut ,and outdoor bar . The beach has plenty of lounge chairs for everyone ,the water so clear - activities to appeal to many -we tried two of the specialty restaurants and they were very good The staff was very attentive and always found space for our group of eight More>

Let's just say as an avid traveler, Do not stay here. The rooms are old and stale. Front desk including managers are rude. Basically told us... A group of 10 our opinion on the hotel and services doesn't matters.. It does not meet the 4star rating... Please look into other resorts.... Oh and a king bed are 2 doubles put together. More>

Hoping this summer vacation to Jamaica would be enjoyable turned into one of the worst summer vacation. From the time we arrived till we left most of the people were unfriendly and looking for any angle to overcharge from taxi, souvenirs and anything else you needed. Don't forget their sales tax is 16.5%! The RIU Palace was falling apart, from the rooms smelling like mildew, room decor were outdated to the TV being the size of a computer monitor, cracks in walls etc. Most of the employees at the restaurant were to busy talking to each other rather than serving the customers. You had to request the staff for every little thing like refills on drinks, hot sauce and even napkins. If you go be careful of the mosquitos they are everywhere. Our family members were bitten numerous times each. You might even want to take your own mosquito nets so you won't get bitten while your asleep. If you have young ones be careful on the beach. They try to sell you whatever their selling and they are pushy. Even kids were being approached to see if they want drugs. The security guards really don't do anything about the vendors harassing the guest. More>
