Our 6 day vacation at Riu Palace Tropical Bay was wonderful from beginning to end. At check in we were greeted with drinks, checked in with ease, and they were able to move our friends so they were next to us, instead of another a building.
The food was great, plenty of variety at both the lunch buffet and supper buffet. We ate at 3 different restaurants, the Japanese, Italian and Steak House. All had great food and it was nice to try different things. We also ordered room service twice and within 20 minutes they were at your door with the food both times.
The beach was the best on the bay, you can walk out 20 feet and see fish swimming all around you. They keep it very clean and the sand is raked daily. We walked both directions down the beach and didn't see a better area. Of course, you had the people walking up and down the beach selling stuff, but none of them were a nuisance to us, most were very friendly. If you ignored them they didn't bother you, or a simple "no thanks" kept them on their way.
Overall, the place was beautiful and kept very clean. The staff were very willing to assist and were much easier to understand then our trips to Mexico. We can't think of a single complaint and if we were coming back to Jamaica, we would not hesitate to return to Riu Tropical Bay.
