Me and my cousin went to the Riu on Boxing day 2012 and stayed til Jan 2nd 2013. We had a great time! I had booked the holiday with my now ex boyfriend and was worried that it may be mainly coupes and families which it was but everyone was really friendly and we met lots of people and made many friends. The hotel was very clean and the staff couldn't be more helpful (they really appreciate a $ tip though). The drinks were lovely - they do some amazing alcoholic slush puppies which are just what you need in the heat. The food was fine - what you expect in an all inclusive. The Jerk chicken on the beach was fab! The rooms are a good size and clean - don't listen to what other people have said!
All in all I had a really good time and would recommend Jamaica and the Riu Montego Bay to anyone. I'm going back for my mums 50th in Jan '14 and cannot wait :)
