First off I'll start by saying Jamaica is a beautiful country. The ocean is warm with beautiful turquoise and blue hues. Most beaches are clean with soft, powdery sand. ALOT of hustlers! Not a bad thing though, you have to keep in mind life is alot harder out there...so you'll have many trying to sell you Jamaican merchandise, drugs, ect.... More

In a nutshell....Check in staff was not inviting, activities staff not friendly. You only have specific times that you are able to get equipment to play ping pong and such. Painting was constantly being done during our stay. Beached were clean and beach staff was friendly. Excursion staff will step over each other to get to you on the beach... More

I've been to 15+ "all inclusives" in the Caribbean over the past 25 years, and am currently sitting on the beach here at the Riu MoBay on day 5 of 7. Here are my thoughts: Montego Bay in Jan/Feb- beautiful, mild tropical weather- lower 80's, light to gusty but prevalent wind. No bug issues here on the beach. First time... More

I stayed here with 15 other girls for a short weekend getaway (Friday-Monday). My room was a 'family room' that consisted of three full/double sized beds. Like most of the reviews indicated, the beds are not comfortable and could use some upgrades (on both the comfort and bedding). When I arrived at 12pm on Friday, my attempt to make reservations...

Just returned after 1 week stay. Really nice place and very relaxing. Large comfortable rooms, spacious bathroom, big beds, optics, beer and soft drinks in rooms. Rooms were very clean with daily maid service. Pool area was very big with plenty of lounges and shade areas. Swim up pool bar gets crowded most afternoons but no problem. Daily keep fit... More

This was my first all inclusive resort so keep in mind I have nothing to compare it too...in saying that, I found the same as a lot of the previous reviews: - the rooms were spacious and we had a great big balcony outside out room which was awesome! We did pay for an oceanview but could barely see it... More

We just got back yesterday from a family vacation in Riu Montego Bay and overall we had a great time; however it was more likely due to the people we were with for my brothers wedding vs being blown away by the accommodations. I'll start with the good stuff - food was great; especially the Italian and the Steakhouse! Facility... More

This was my third Riu all inclusive. Unfortunately for Riu we stayed at the Royalton in the Mayan Riviera in 2015, so we were comparing everything. The Riu hotel and amenities are getting dated. It wasn't terrible but just not as good as the Royalton. The staff at the Riu were amazing! Very friendly and entertaining. My biggest complaint was... More

This is my 2nd trip to Jamaica and at this resort as well. I feel if you enjoy yourself at a place and you plan to revisit, just go to the same place before. At least you'll know what and what not to expect. I visited before in Sept 2011 and left a great review then. I was a bit... More
