Just returned from Riu Montego Bay. I am thankful for the positive reviews I read on Tripadvisor.
We had an awesome time. A really great value. Good food. Generally, I don't like buffet style eating, however there were tremendous choices even for those who watch their weight while vacationing. You have to make reservations for the specialty restaurants in the main.
The Steak House was very good.
Riu has a group of talented dancers and performers who provided nightly entertainment. They also organized games and gave dance lesson during the day.
The staff was very friendly and polite. When we wanted to venture beyond the resort , they were very helpful.
The grounds were beautiful with all manner of palm and coconut trees. They also have several fruit trees on the property next to the tennis courts.
The only negative is that you cannot snorkel. The water's visibility is very poor but felt wonderful after beach aerobics. Other than this, we totally enjoyed our stay.
