Second time at the Riu. First time with a group which was awesome. Second time went with my husband. Jamel at the front desk was excellent! Staff was very friendly and willing to help. Pricing was good. Food was good, always love myself some jerk chicken and peas & rice with plantains, which they are more than happy to fulfill... More

On arrival we were met in reception with a rum cocktail or fruit cocktail - given a welcome envelope then told what number our rooms were. We had to find the room ourself and were just told it was down past the restaurant in a block to the rear. We got into the room which was a very good size... More

The room was beautiful. The staff was exceptional. This is all inclusive and the food was great. They helped us plan our excursions as well. Very reasonably priced. Even the drinks were included. You cannot find a nicer place or a less priced place with the luxury that we found. We had no problem getting lounges on the beach or... More

This was 11 times for me to Jamaica. I started going as a birthday present to myself years ago. This was my second time at Riu Montego Bay, and it was a joy to see some of the employees that were still there from 3 years ago when I visited this hotel. This is a very nice hotel, GREAT bartenders... More

The resort was very nice and we'll worth the money. The jerk chicken hut on the beach was awesome. The had a great staff. Everyone was extremely friendly and eager to help. The ac wasn't very good our first night. But they promptly fixed it whenwe told them the next morning. The wet bar in the room was awesome. Rum,... More

This place is so close to the airport! You can be at the hotel and on the beach in less than ten minutes. Stayed here for a bachelor's party in June 2013 (Way too hot, got blistered my first day) and again in December 2013 (weather was perfect). I thought this place was ok the first trip. There were different... More

I had a great stay at this resort. The rooms were clean and comfortable. They are set up so you share a small foyer with your neighbor and can close the main hall door for extra sound-proofing. Decent mini-bar- its mostly coca cola, orange soda and red stripe, also, the hard liquor. Only 2 big bottles of water every 2... More

I stayed at the Riu Montego Bay for 5 nights with my mother from the 12th-17th. I'm 25 and she's 52. We are by no means prudes, we enjoy a good party, but there's a difference between classy and trashy. There are far, far, less pros than cons. Pros: the pool was always well kept, staff was for the most... More

We wanted to go with another couple for an easy all inclusive get away where we didn't have to break the bank, and we got more than we expected. Although the rooms were a little dated, the bed was comfy & the space was very clean. We had a nice balcony to hang out on, and there was a fully... More
