    Another amazing experience

    This was my 6th time back at the Riu Palace and this trip brought two other couples with us. I must say that the riu palace gets increasingly better each time. Service, cleanliness, atmosphere are all top notch. I have always enjoyed the food at the resort but this year was hands down the greatest. I spoke with management and the chefs and complimented on how wonderful everything was. We dined at all of the restaurants and everyone was overly impressed with their meals and service. The only meal that was a bit salty for my liking was the lobster risotto at Krystal. Jerk chicken at the resort is amazing and better than the huts on the beach, personal opinion:). The staff is amazing at the riu palace in Montego Bay Jamaica. Each individual greets you with a smile, hand shake, hug. They are all overly friendly and take great pride in assuring that guests are well taken care of. On multiple occasions I witnessed “huddles” taking place prior to the restaurant or buffet opening. Keep it up, it’s working! I was saddened to see some of the friends we have made over the years have moved on but very impressed with a lot of the new faces. Reconnecting with some of our favorites and creating new memories is always an ideal addition to the vacation. To all do the staff at Riu palace especially Dr. Phil, Jemar, Kemar, Kemori, the captain, Demar, Ricardo, Osborne, Raquel and many others keep up the awesome work and look forward to next year!

    Paradise In The Sun

    Returned last week from Riu Palace Montego Bay – only stayed a week but wished I had booked a few days longer. Lovely beach front hotel with three pools ten minutes from the airport. ALL staff very attentive to our needs. Upon arrival was given a welcome drink in the lobby. Our room was spacious on the third floor. A few problems with the air-conditioning and fridge upon arrival but this was attended to within 30 minutes of our arrival. Bed was huge and very comfortable. Room was quiet. Lovely to have drinks brought to you regularly on beach front and around pool areas. Special thanks to Yvette who looked after us during our stay on the beach. Used buffet restaurant which had a variety of foods for all tastes. Special thanks to Nigel and Andrei (two of the many chefs in the restaurant). Also, to ALL staff in restaurant areas too many to mention but all so attentive. Hotel has additional restaurants - Steak House; Japanese; India and Italian which you can only book in person on day. Italian we really enjoyed and used twice during our week. Food was very good and our Waitress Ocaydo was lovely and very attentive. Entertainment is provided day and night for all tastes. Entertainment staff around the pool/ beach area during the day and evening in the Aqua Bar. Encouraged to join in but no pressure if you do not wish to participate. Entertainment staff work hard though-out the day to entertain. Thank you, Dr. Fun, Fun, Spark, Candy & Dimples. Also had entertainment provided from outside groups in the evening. We enjoyed Synchronised Swimming Act one night and another a Steel Band in the Aqua Bar. Vogue Lounge provide mixed entertainment most nights which can be live classical music or live Jazz. Again, staff very efficient. Special thanks to Jessica our waitress who looked after us during our stay. Branded drinks throughout the hotel are provided. Great Cocktails throughout our stay. Only went on one day trip as we were on a short break and wanted to chill. We chose the Catamaran trip to Dunn’s River-falls. If you are in Jamaica highly recommend you make this one of your trips out. This trip was arranged through Karen our Tui Rep. Thank you, Karen. Overall a good break which I did not wish to return from and wished I had book for a few days longer. Big thank you to ALL staff for making our stay memorable. Look forward to staying with you all again.

The entertainment was epic; one of the nights that had synchronize swimmers performing in the pool. The beach were beautiful and clean and the staff always came around and asked if we need anything. My husband also loved the food.

    This is why we keep coming back

    3 Years now in a row and WHY. The Staff every single one of them are fantastic and go above and beyond. Arrived at the Palace and as soon as the sliding doors opened we were met with open arms and welcomed back home by Mr Grant (Richard) one man that goes above and beyond and also a very good friend the feeling of being welcomed meant so much to myself and my wife. Reception as always friendly and polite this time we were met by a young lady in training and when we asked if any upgrades were available she told us it would be $28.00 a night but a young man stepped in and upgraded us for free for being returning guests in fact we got the room next door to last years. First Morning walking to the pool was again welcomed home by Darmaine the pool barman just the fact that they remember you make you feel so appreciated over the next couple of days again staff recognised us . Food as always lots to choose from and of a good standard . Entertainment staff work so so hard and make this place a great place to spend your holidays Spark a man that never stops how he gets so much energy is beyond me and probably the whole of the hotel guests and staff a great addition to the entertainment team.(Dr Fun Fun,Lady T,Kandy K,Dimples) Obviously we spent a lot of time at the bars so again thank you for keeping us rehydrated Dessrick,Solien, Fredrico,Darmaine,Richard ,Kemar and all the girls around the pool and bars. Whilst away it was my birthday my room was decorated a birthday cake was put in the room and also a present from the hotel. I wont go on too long because you need to book this hotel and enjoy the Jamaican warmth and service. PS Just booked again for July 2020 Cant wait.
