We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this resort. Have been to Mobay 11 times but first time here and found the staff second to none. Beach complaints I found to be unfounded natural beach stuff and hotel was cleaning. Found our garden room clean and well maintained the in-room bar guy was very happy to tailor our wants and needs.

Went for a bachlorette, for four days, I read a lot of reviews, some seemed bad, some seemed good. I had been to the Riu in Punta Cana, i thought this place would be similar. I was totally shocked at how much better it was though! Definitely enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and entertaining, the food was very... More

I loved this hotel and had a blast during my stay (November 2014). The staff was awesome, Tweety was our favorite! The reason I didn't give this hotel 5 stars was becuase of the beach. Supposeduly it is a man-made beach, so there is muck and grass on the sea floor. That didn't bother me as much as I thought... More

Overall this resort was great. The pools were very nice. The food was awesome. The staff were very friendly. And the daily entertainment by the pool was fun. The beach was nice but not great. And the only downside was people coming up on rafts to harass you to buy stuff or try to sell you drugs. As long as... More

Pool closed too early. Beach was mud if you went in it, but we stayed at the pool. Place was small enough... More

We came here for a long weekend bachelorette party. The beach was great and staff friendly. The food and drinks on the other hand... I don't understand why they are so sweet. It made some of us sick and a few cranky. I guess it is what it is for what we paid.

I returned from Montego Bay exactly a week ago. I was there with my spouse and three other couples. Our stay at the Riu resort was an excellent one. The staff, the environment, food and entertainment were all awesome. It was really "all inclusive "!!!! We took the opportunity to visit Negril. We were blessed to have had a very... More

The check in process was fast. The room was clean but very dated, the linen and bedding was uncomfortable. The housekeeping staff was very attentive. The food was AWFUL!!! It was second rate buffet food. The "specialty" restaurants were always booked. The only one we got in to was the asian restaurant which was really bad second rate Chinese buffet... More
