Best holiday we’ve ever had
Although it was a wonderful resort and the best holiday we have ever had...also, the staff and food was amazing! My only regret is we paid for an Oceanview room which looked over the pool with very little view of the ocean. Next time I wouldn’t pay the extra as it was a waste of money.
Amazing Riu Palace
Best service we got in a Riu Palace. A lot of nice attentions as fruit and ice cream served at the pool. Really clean. Nice room with actual decoration. Beautiful Negril beach. Thanks we all enjoyed our stay.
Riu Palace Tropical Bay
Food was great, people were great, the weather was great. Nicest beach in Jamaica. Resort staff was friendly with exceptional service. Everything was extremely clean and well kept. Good vibes only!!!! Could use a nicer mattress.
This is our second visit to this resort and we would stay here a third time!
We took a family vacation to Negril, Jamaica and loved this resort. For my husband and I, it was our second visit and this stay was just as enjoyable as our last. There is so much to do and experience. The entertainment schedule is full and there is something for all ages. Don’t forget to visit the Daquiri Bar, you won’t be disappointed and ask the bartender, Indera, to give you a riddle.
4th time here
This is by far our favorite RIU resort. The beach and employees make it our reason for return trips. We have made several friends here. The food and drinks are above average and the rooms are kept immaculate. I’d like to give a shoutout to Tavere, Twain and Omar in the outside seating area for breakfast and lunch. These guys go above and beyond to make you laugh. Tell them Jacque Chan sent you and enjoy some laughs. Only downside is the day you have to leave.
