After reading some of the reviews I was a bit skeptical. Once you get there you realize that only a GRINCH could write something negative about this place. Upon your arrival- you are greeted with refreshing fruit drinks and warm hospitality. THE KEY TO A GOOD VACATION IS A GOOD ATTITUDE. LEAVE YOUR CRANKY PANTIES AT HOME and be prepared to embrace beautiful surroundings, good food and Jamaican hospitality. The entertainment crew gives 200%. Big up to Michael Jackson, Ebony and Hotdog. For some good fun-do yourself a favor and participate in the activities. Whether you choose to lie on beach listening to Bob Marley, kayak or play beach olympics you will have a memorable time at the RIU.
As far as the food goes- try the Jamaican dishes- Ackee, calaloo, rice & peas, escoveich fish, dumpling etc. You will not be disappointed.
The premises are immaculate. It feels like you are walking around a lilac paradise. The RIU is beautiful at every angle.
I read comments about the sheets but I always carry my own flat sheet on vacations. Just a habit.
RIU is great for families & couples and even solo guests. After going there with my family I know that I could go back by myself and have a great time.
