We were a little worried about staying a the Riu MBJ after some of the negative reviews. We had stayed in Riu Ocho Rios and knew how good that was and had faith that this would be good too. It was GREAT! So nice to get off the plane and be at your resort right away. Check in was quick and flawless, a cold drink in hand we made our reservations for each of the restaurants and headed up to the room. Spend the extra and get the suite. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPPOINTED. We used the hot tub in the room every night and it is plenty big for two with room to spare. Our balcony was the size of two and the ocean was right there. Sunsets are beautiful in M. Bay. A/C was plenty cold and the drinks were plentiful. We enjoyed the beach and the pool and went on the snorkeling trip. A very full 2 hours! No snorkeling right off the beach like in Ocho Rios but the trip made up for it. Planes are no big deal either, I saw some bad reviews about that and it had me worried. It's like 5 seconds and they are gone. Staff is so nice from the ladies cleaning your rooms to the bartenders and waiters and the ladies in the spa. We had a great trip, drank too much, ate too much and in general just had so much fun. Met a lot of nice people but had plenty of just us time too. I hope to go to another Riu next year.
