    we attended this hotel in September 2019 for 2 weeks . the staff were amazing and friendly especially O'Brian in the sports bar who made us really welcome night after night . we are now planning a return visit sooner rather than later . Only down point for us was the 24 hour snacks which were very few and only a few select cold sandwiches . hot dogs and burgers that had to be heated in the microwave but after a few drinks they still wentdown ok

    Fantastic holiday

    After reading some of the reviews, we were really worried about what to expect. We needn't have, we had a fantastic time and the staff were amazing. Check in was fast & efficient, a welcoming cold drink on arrival and 10 minutes after getting to our room we received a call from reception to check that we had everything that we needed. The entertainment team are one of the best that we have seen. Despite working long hours, they always had a smile and made sure everyone had a great time. Shout out to Purple, Small, Chocolate, Roly Poly & Lady Abigail to name but a few. We didn't try the steakhouse but the rest of the restaurants are great with lots of variety. The jerk chicken at the beach hut is to die for. We would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel and will definitely be back next year

    Another Amazing Vacation

    This is my 4th vacation this year, and my 2nd time attending the Riu Montego Bay. My boyfriend and I wanted a quick getaway and we literally booked this trip with 3 days before departure. As soon as we entered the airport, the Sunwing reps were pleasant, very informative and advised of the 10 minute drive to the hotel, which was a bonus. The hotel lobby is gorgeous and clean. Check-in was a breeze and apparently they knew who we were before we even got to the counter. The pools are great. There are various sections, a swim up pool bar, a wide area for regular swimming and another side where they play the water sports. The food is great. There is a variety of options. The a la cartes are first come first serve. So no lining up early to get a reservation. Breakfast is great. A lot of bacon, for those who always complain LOL. There is a BBQ grill on the beach daily that serves Jerk Chicken, RIce n Peas, and vegetables everyday. Its soooooooooo delicious. Everyone was lined up around the corner to get some. The entertainment was lively throughout the entire day. There is always something to do and the entertainers are very friendly. On Wednesday nights, there is an all white beach party. Be sure to bring something white to wear. Overall, Riu Montego Bay was fun. I would definitely go back. Thank you for having us and for making my boyfriends birthday a surprising welcome with all the room decor/balloons and welcome birthday letter. Much appreciated.
