First and foremost, PLEASE DO NOT FORGET YOUR BUG SPRAY! You will most definitely need it. The mosquitoes are relentless on this property. The property could use a fair share of upgrades. The décor and the "fatback" television in my suite made me feel like I was at a Sandals resort in the 90s. If you are not a rum... More

Place was beautiful and clean. Staff was very nice and attentive. The jerk chicken at lunch time on the beach was delicious but the rest of the food was not good. The restaurant buffets were loaded with flies. Very disgusting and unsanitary!!!

Not what I expected. All of the food was buffet style even the restaurants that you had to make reservations. The Kalu was below par. We left and ate at the Rose Hall. The drinks are definitely watered down. Couldn't get a drink that was made with real alcohol anywhere. The rooms are just like any other hotel. Nothing great.... More

This was the first visit to Jamaica so I don't quite know what the standard is but my sister and I had a blast. The resort wasn't the most beautiful but is was definitely beautiful in its own right. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean, and the food was comparable to other all-inclusive resort restaurants I've ever... More

Before heading to Jamaica I read a few negative reviews about the hotel however I couldn't be happier that we ignored them. I absolutely loved Jamaica and don't have a negative thing to say about the Riu Montego Bay. The hotel was lovely, including the pool and the beach. I especially liked that the beach was private and only for... More

I stayed at the Riu Ocho Rios and was dissapointed. I went to this Riu for a celebration. I must say, it's better than Ocho. We got to the hotel and were greeted by staff whom advised us where our rooms were and about the amenities. The lobby was bustling and the resort was alive! We took our keys and... More

This hotel and resort was fine. Rooms clean and we had a suite on the ocean and it was lovely. Great shower and bathroom, comfortable. Beach to the far right of the resort was quiet and comfortable. The ocean was fine for swimming in, but watch for fish and crabs it is the ocean, scan the water before you enter... More

Just arrived back from Jamaica. Stayed at the Riu Montego Bay. My first disapointment was the whole resort is non smoking which is not specified anywhere. There are a few little smoking area's scattered about the hotel but you are bitten that bad by the mosquito's it unreal. Believe me they bite worse here than anywhere I have ever been.... More

The Hotel is beautiful and the staff is friendly. It's the food that's a problem and the flip side attitude of the staff is annoying. Every time you look at a staff member they are trying to sell you something or get a tip. Some of the male staff a Gigglos as was pointed out to me by female guest... More

I am currently stay at the at Riu Montego Bay and am totally, disappointed the rooms are mold and have a very old feeling. I am in room 1223 and 1224 and my wife and kid just had to take zertex because of the moldy feeling. The front desk did show us other rooms but they are the same. Hoping... More
