I'd rate this resort as fair, at best. It's not bad, but nothing to really right home about either. If this had been my first stay at an all inclusive resort, I think I would have been impressed. But since it's not, I wasn't. Here's a short list of pros and cons: Pros: -The lobby, walkways and common spaces are...

My wife and I vacation three to four times a year and this was by far the best stay I have ever had. Spirit Airlines could use some organization.

Just returned from a short stay at the Riu Montego Bay which is a short drive from the airport thus airplanes fly directly over the resort beach. The rooms were very clean but the bedding was rough, mattress very hard and pillows full of lumps. Had to ask for new pillows twice. Beautiful pool and swim up bar. The resort...

The title explains it all. Absolutely superb location for an amazing holiday in the beautiful Jamaica. You are free to leave your hotel as and when you like unlike rumours you hear and the people are very friendly. Staff cannot do enough. Decor is stunning to match the castle like image the hotel has with many restaurants and its own...

We were impressed with all staff, EXCELLENT entertainment staff, bar staff-deserve awards! Everyone was helpful, smiling and gracious. The food was delish! If you can't find something you like to eat, then you should be somewhere that caters to you specifically, because the vast assortment of foods is pretty amazing! A vegetarian's dream come true. Nightly entertainment was a plus....

I'm sure some people must have been to a different hotel! No bugs, bad smells or security problems. Clean rooms, firm beds and polite staff. Lovely food, plenty of strong drinks and amazing Entertainment Team. Some guests need to watch their manners - there's no need to be so rude to waiters/bar tenders, etc. Pool area and beach cleaned regularly....
