Arrived at RIU Montego Bay on December 10.
My previous RIU experience was staying at RIU Palace. I chose RIU Montego Bay this year, because it was brand new, and by my thoughts, the hotel's administration will do everything possible for their guests during the first opening year.
The Hotel itself was very clean. Nice personnel.
Food: Very decent. You will be able to find varieties of sea food, including shrimps, crab legs, cured salmon, smocked marlin, and etc.
Themes Restaurants: Just OK.
Buffet restaurant: This is the best one.
Bars: Local liqueurs were in huge varieties, however, international brands were presented very poorly.
Pool: Very nice and clean.
Beach: Bad, murky beach. Lack of shades. If you are a beach goer, as I am, don't buy a package to RIU Montego Bay.
Entertainment: Local crew trying their best. I would recommend to see The Drums Band Show.
Overall: This is a solid 3.5 Star Resort.
Next time, if I will go to RIU again, I will spend a little bit more for staying at RIU Palace.
