Arrived here Saturday 22/4/17 as the hotel we were booked into had a major incident. First impressions from the hotel was not a good one. It was really busy loads of kids making a noise. Reception area was dated and people everywhere. Not a good first impression. Not what we booked but under the circumstances didn't intend to remain here....

We got back from our amazing Spring break vacation at the Hotel Riu Montego Bay. This was my third time staying at this hotel! We would like to express our thanks to all the staff (management team, lobby, entertainment, waiters & waitresses, and housekeepers for cleaning morning and night). Special thanks to front desk – Delroy and Natoya! The staff...

If you like to walk on the beach as we do, don't choose this resort. You can walk the whole beach in 5 minutes. They rope part of the beach off for weddings, which seemed to happen every day. Very disappointing. That being said, there were some good points. there were always plenty of lounge chairs on the beach. There...

It's a specious resort with ample facilities on the beach. Impressive restaurant and variety of food. Nice pool area but some maintenance required to areas most prominent the fixed water loungers where many mini tile were missing. We were 3 siblings in a room for 4 nights and it was not cheap. Majority of the staff very friendly and accommodating....

This large family hotel has many pluses with two huge pools and a lovely peaceful beach. The rooms are spacious with a free bar but no tea or coffee making facilities unfortunately. There are 4 restaurants, one a buffet serving a delicious variety of foods, a steakhouse, Italian and a Japanese. The sea is calm although there is a lot...

I've traveled to Jamaica numerous times and stayed at many resorts, but this is the first time I felt compelled to write a review. I just arrived back home yesterday after a 5 day stay. I read about and was told about this resort but I was still skeptical upon my arrival. Our room was ready upon check in, very...

I mostly had a great time at this hotel. The property was a little old but still nice. 99% of the staff was amazing save one person in a black hoodie, who we are assuming was a staff member, aggressively approached a friend of mine, demanded to see his wristband and then moved on without asking anyone else. I would...

Can't fault the food, service and entertainment. Plenty of sun beds around the pool. The Italian restaurant is particularly great with the best steak and choice of food. The oriental restaurant is also good., closely followed by the steak restaurant, which has a beautiful view over the sea. There is also a buffet restaurant which has a very extensive choice....
