I've come to realize many of your vacations are what you make of them. My husband and I stayed here for 5 days with friends, and we had a great time. The rooms are clean, but we only slept and got ready for the day (served its purpose). We drank...a lot. Loved the swim up pool bar (spent a great...

My husband and I were very pleased. This was our first international trip. The staff was great. Plenty of food although some of it I didn't know what it was but tried it anyway. The only thing that really got me is that there were no elevators so I did get a work out!!!

I was thrilled with this property from the moment I stepped foot in the open air lobby. This hotel is a beautiful property, nestled on a nice beach. The rooms were also very spacious and well kept. The staff was very friendly. I go to Jamaica often and this is by far the nicest hotel I have stayed at. The...

We stayed at riu mo-bay from July 12th to 18th 2013. It was me, my husband, our 3 kids (5-7-12), my mother in law and father in law, and my sister in law and her husband. Check-in: easy, fast, pleasant. We got a second key made for our room and it took 1 minute. All rooms but 1 were ready....

Me and several of my girlfriends stayed here to celebrate my 40 birthday. The hotel had a lot to offer as far as activities were concerned. The shows were good, the beach party and cook out was fun and enjoyable. The pool was beautiful and clean. This hotel was average for the area. The hotel lobby was beautifully decorated. The...

The resort itself was lovely, the beach wasn't the greatest. There were cockroaches in the bedroom and I have never had that happen before even in a 3 star in Jamaica. The food was wonderful, staff was attentive and very helpful for the most part. They used their grey water to water the lawns and the smell was rancid. The...
