Good resort if you want a child friendly beach, good food, near the airport (10 minutes), great for families, friendly service. This Riu is a cozy resort, the only negative being a relatively smaller beach.

I always look at the reviews on tripadvisor before booking anywhere. I was very nervous considering the reviews but i booked it anyway. I stayed at the RIU Montego Bay in June 2013 for two nights in an oceanfront room and we had a good experience. The food was good, they had a decent selection of jamaican food for dinner...

My wife and I were in Jamaica for my grandmother's funeral and decided to spend a few days at the RIU Montego bay, after the ceremonies. We were totally impressed with everything and everyone we encountered...especially Tanya Sue from guest relations, she offered us a personal tour of the new RIU Palace right next door. Thanks Tanya Sue and Jahmoy...

I traveled to RIU Montego bay for the second time in December, alone, as I knew the resort and felt comfortable going there solo. It's a beautiful place. The grounds are well-kept, the pools are beautiful and the food is incredible. The beaches are not as nice as some of the beaches in Cuba or Mexico, but they are ok,...

Plain and simple, this resort is not a 5 star but it was not bad either.... Only 1 bad experience to mention we had roaches leaking out of the bathroom light but they accommodated us and provided an upgrade suite at no extra charge.

My wife and I traveled from December 31st to January 7th and flew with Sunwing out of Toronto. It took quite a while for the Sunwing reps to get everything organised at the airport and we sat on the bus for probably 45 minutes before heading to the hotel. One of the bus staff tried to sell us drugs but...

I have recently returned from our holiday stay in this hotel, and my experience was terrific! The staff were extremely friendly and there was nothing they wouldn't do for you!

This was my first all inclusive vacation in 10 years and was for both personal vacation as well as the Reggae Marathon. First things first, the food was the worst part of the trip. I mean it was OK, but I found myself going for a lot of salads and fruits. I'm not very picky with eating and this was...

Reading the reviews I got kinda nervous. However, after my trip I feel that everybody writing a bad review and just complained about everything was determined to have a bad time and was finding stuff to complain about.
