My friends and I recently spent 5 nights at the Riu. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we had a great time. The resort is clean and the rooms are comfortable. The weather was to die for! My advice for travelers, bring an insulated beverage container. I wish I had thought to bring one with me. It is hot...

A few things to consider: - Don't expect a lot from the food. The buffets are mediocre at best. The steak house was terrible and the Asian place was far from authentic. We did not get to the Italian place. The exception is the jerk hut on the beach. It is awesome. Definitely eat lunch there. We also went off...

My family and I have been to this resort 5 times and have been pleased with all it has to offer! So much so, that we had a group of 30 attend my brothers wedding on April 3, 2013. All 30 were impressed. The food is typical of an all-inclusive. Good enough. The restaurants were all booked, but when the...

The Riu Montego Bay is in no way a 5 star, 4 star or 3 star Hotel. The check in process was lengthy and disorganized, there were no reservations for the resturants for the entire week (so they said), the rooms were old, mattresses uncomfortable, filled with bugs and no shampoo, lotions,no coffee maker etc.There were no lights in the...
