Went there for friends wedding. After reading other reviews I was very worried that this place was terrible. This was not the case we found it a nice place, but as always there are some things that could be improved.

Don't take any notice of the bad reviews !!! This place was spotless and the staff were brilliant. I was worried that my children would not be happy staying in the resort all the time but even though there were only a few children there when we visited the staff made sure they were kept entertained through the day, although...

Like many others, I came here to look up reviews on the riu negril resort, after I had already booked. After seeing all the bad reviews I felt terrible for 2 weeks thinking I had wasted my money. The one thing that does hold true above all else, is the lack of beach/pool loungers. However, if you are out and...

I only have Mexico to compare this vacation to. The beach was nice water was beautiful and sunsets gorgeous. We had to walk a distance to get to the main activities. If you are an older person or have a toddler this is not the place. No elevators and a long walk. No coffee makers in the rooms or buildings...

Our daughter was married on March 2, 2011. What a time. Fifteen of us made the trip and stayed at the Club Hotel. We don't normally stay at the "all inclusive" resorts as we like to see the country and stay in the smaller hotels and hang with the locals. The Club Hotel was outstanding. We loved every minute. The...

After reading the reviews I was a little skeptical about booking at this hotel. My husband and I have been to Jamaica before in Ocho Rios and have travelled every year for the last 6 years. This hotel was very good. I don't understand what some people expect, but this hotel was great. The food was very good, the staff...

I too read reviews with mini horror stories but having been to Negril before kept the reservation. This resort is barely in Negril but reflects a lot of what Negril used to be... The front desk was great, the room service staff deserve honors and we experienced only positives with all the staff. The tourists we older and mostly European/Baltic...

I have to say, don't travel on a Saturday. The crowds in the Montego Bay airport are chaotic at weekends.It took about 2 hours to get outside to the transfer bus.Hotel Riu Negril is a one and a half hour trip, but our first look at the hotel made up for it. The staff were all friendly and helpful. If...

I was very worried after reading the reviews, but now that I've stayed there I certainly wouldn't tell you to cancel your reservation. For our honeymoon in 2008 my wife and I stayed in a posh 5-star mexican resort near Playa Del Carmen called Mayan Palace. The owner was getting married and other guests at the resort included Slim Helu...

“buildings 3 and up are a bit far away from the action and requires a lot of walking. Request buildings 1 or 2.”

“Block 1 is closest to amenities. Block 2 has it's own pool. Rooms are on one side of lobby & restaurants, etc. are on the other.”

“Building 1 or 2 so you are closer to everything - still a good walk!”

“Try for ground floor or 2nd floor. Too many stairs, no elevators.”
