I will begin by saying that this is my second trip to Montego Bay. I visited the Riu with my Honey for a 4day getaway. At check-in I was greeted by Nekeisha (all smiles and charm) I absolutely loved her, she and Jahmeel welcomed me with open arms and even though we waited for a few minutes to get to...

Don't be hesitant about staying here, beautiful landscaping and friendly staff. Meat at he stake house wasn't the greatest. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and atmosphere. We're ready to come back next year with our (adult) kids.

Stayed twice, one night each, at this resort. Definitely lacking in some features. No in-room coffee maker is a pain! When the buffet was open, you could secure a cuppa coffee there, otherwise out of luck. No shampoo, conditioner and/or body lotion furnished. In the tub/shower is a generic dispenser. Little touches, like a laundry bag would also be nice....

Hotel was great, needs a bit of updating but was comfortable. Food was good "Jerk Hut" was the best. Staff were friendly. Enjoyed the sunset cruise and snorkeling. The pool had lots of space. Dunn's River Falls a must. Went to shops across from hotel found to be expensive. Hotel prices were fair for merchandise.

Pros. Nice room, good layout of resort. Beach is okay. Staff are friendly. Props to Clarence for arranging an awesome dinner set up at the Steak house. Food in the buffets were good and the jerk hut on beach was nice. Ok.. the cons.... A five star should have poolside service, coffee machine in room and room service. The resort...

Really good place, good amenities, great entertainment, good food, nothing great, the only disappointment for me was the water on the beach, didn't feel that clear, could feel the pollution. The room was nice, take the sea view if your budget allow you. A la carte offer disappointing, but main offer i.e. buffet nice. Will return, great value for money

My husband and I were at the Riu Montego Bay from 21st September to the 3rd October 201. We really enjoyed our stay until we found that we have been burgled.
