My 5th time in JA 2nd time at The Riu Club
Check-In...Was smooth cocktails while we checked in we had rooms in bldg. 3 which is a nice long walk to the rest of the resort so we requested Bldg. 1 and it was granted the next day no problem.
Room...Was clean spacious for 3 ladies in a room we didnt seem to bump into each other durin our stay, the bathroom was clean with double sinks which was perfecr for 3 ladies in a room...big closet, huge floor to ceiling mirror, big closet and stocked bar always a plus! the only thing the room was missing was a coffee maker (no big deal) as I had a hang ova every morning lol...but my lovely roommate would bring a pot of fresh brewed coffee from the breakfast area to our room...thank goodness for her!!
Food...My favorite meal was the breakfast buffet the dinner was good tooand the variety is endless even the pickiest eater wont starve. We ate at Luigi restaurant our last night it was nice but probably would have been fine dining at the buffet.
Beach...I cant say much about the beach I did lounge on the beach but I'm not a beach person although the water was calm and clear it's just not my thing. The pools was lovely especially the pool bar with music and drinks flowing good times!
--There was a beach party on the resort on Sunday lots of fun
--The club on the resort is nice they played a variety of jams it closes at 1 or 2am nice spot if you dont want to leave the resort to party.
--You have Luigi's that stays open all day all night servin pizza sometimes oxtails, rice, spaghetti, lasagne & pasta...they even let us take a whole pizza to our room..no problem
We took the catamaran to Rick's it rained very hard on our way there but it was a beautiful sunshine and sunset on our way back absolutely Breathtaking view! I highly recommend the catamaran vs. the taxi ride to Rick's.
--Jungle nightclub Thursday night (ladies feee) nice party spot
--Bourbon beach & Alfred's great spots for (live reggae bands)
--ScrubADub (strip club) was classy nice took some of those moves home with me..lol
Massage...On the beach massage for 50mins of heaven!!! It was an out of this world experience, and they gave us a bottle of champagne...highly recommend!
Shout outs to the ENTIRE STAFF at Riu Clubhotel I cant say how much I appreciate the smiles the "hey mons", the "no worries" the "irie mons", "yea mon" during my stay as some folks I'm sure make it really hard for you to stay in a relax happy mood with there "nick pickin"complaints!! Some folks really need to step back and count there blessings and NOT how many towels they have or no shampoo or mosquitoe bites and repeating foods and my bar wasnt stocked (cry babies) as most people dont have any of the above.!
