My boyfriend and I stayed at the Riu and had an amazing time! The proximity to the hotel was perfect and the taxi ride was very reasonable ($20). From check-in to check-out the staff was amazing. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We left our ipads, phones, etc laying around and fortunately had NO issues. The food was delicious...

The RIU was amazing, beautiful, food was good, drinks were great, activities and night life were amazing, my only disappointment was that me and the girl I travel with had our phones stolen out of our rooms after 6 pm. Security blamed it on an unlocked balcony ( which was not the case) and we are sure it had to...

Overall we were happy with our 1 week vacation at the Riu Montego Bay. The food was great, the beach was very clean and lots of chairs available. Housekeeping was good, but on one day they didn't provide us with towels and facecloths so we had to call the front desk. And on another day we practically had to beg...

Staff very accommodating and friendly. Checking in seamless as well as checking out, Property grounds well maintained and the gardeners will pick you coconuts if you ask. Please tip them. $1 per coconut won't break your pocket. Rooms were very clean. I agree make sure you have all your toiletries as what's provided was quite limited. Very central location and...

The staff at the Riu Resort in Montego Bay made our stay pleasant and fun. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. The gentlemen taking care of the landscape went out of their way each day to ensure we had all the coconuts we wanted. The grounds and layout of the resort is absolutely beautiful. The pool was beautiful and well...
