We stayed 18 nights in the Riu Palace Montego Bay and consequently we have a good idea of the strong and less strong points of the hotel. Generally, in all aspects, the standards of total quality, food, drinks, service, kindness of the staff, swimmingpools, bars, restaurants, cleanliness, watersportsteam, animationteam, gardens, chairs and lounges etc... are very, very high. The expections...

So we arrived to a great reception area. Check-in was fairly quick, and we had no line. however should you find yourself in a line there is a bar 100 yards behind you. the staff was friendly and welcoming. we stayed on the east side of the property. which had great view (in my opinion) we opened up the patio...

I have read some write-ups on here that surprise me! Was I in the same hotel as the same time as these reviewers? We were really impressed. Checkin was fast and easy. Our room was very well appointed, our only issue was that our mini bar was not stocked until we called reception. However, when we called it was swiftly...

Rooms are mediocre-could use updating. Signed up for a king size bed and received two full size beds pushed together-may have been welded b/c we didn't fall thru them! Only amenity in room was the shampoo in a dispenser and shower cap. No lotion, conditioner, pen, or paper. Liquor dispensers, beer, water and soft drinks in mini fridge. Curtains old...

Had a great time, good food, nice pool, good shows, buffet was great, didn't even go to the restaurants, jerk hut on the beach was great for a mid day snack, the key for me was, the swim up bar area was mostly adults and the children were on the other side of the pool, great size for a pool,...

Literally a huge resort, so better be ready to do alot of walking. Restaurant selection is good & food very good. Awesome service at the bars & great entertainment. The pools are large & no problem finding a spot to relax. The beach was big but a little rocky compared to other beach fronts in the area. They have a...

My fiancé and I came here for four nights in January 2017. We left after the first night. Some of my issues: 1) we stayed in Tower 4 on the second floor. Our "garden view" overlooked a barb wire fence with a couple Jamaican teens begging for money. This is not ok. Security came to our room at around 9pm...

Our WestJet flight got cancelled and they quickly arranged a room for us at Riu Montego Bay. We were given a room on the second floor with an ocean view. The room was OK. Everything worked well and the washroom had two sinks. The fridge was well stocked and we had an in room liquor dispenser. The ice machine was...
