We opted for this hotel as it boasted 4 stars but in our opinion it is more like a 3 star as it didn't quite live up to our expectations ( I will try to be as fair as possible) Hubby and I have been fortunate enough to be able to travel to the Caribbean a few times and for...

I am not sure why some people are giving bad reviews to this hotel. My husband and i had our wedding in Punta Cana (different place, not Riu Naiboa) 3 weeks ago, and we choose to stay in Riu Naiboa. We were a group of 50 people. The place is gorgeous itself! The walk to the beach is less than...

We were very apprehensive about visiting this hotel after seeing all the mixed reviews, but we are here now and this is the first day. I've stopped at many all inclusive sin the Caribbean over the years (3 in the Dom Rep) and this is by far the best value for money. Don't expect champagne for lemonade prices..... this hotel...

We were very sceptical and wary at what we would be faced with reading previous reviews - have been here 24 hours and have nothing but praise for all the staff and the complex. Our room is on 4th floor overlooking pool and do not have any issue with noise. On checking in Cesar was brill, gave us all the...

Our local travel agents helped us to choose this hotel after a last minute decision to book a honeymoon. With wedding planning taking priority we didn't have much time to research the trip properly. The holiday was sold to us as the hotel being on the riu complex which means you were able to use the other hotels facilities. We...

The room we got was freshly painted, like hours before and the fumes were unbearable! The shower door was rusted. They changed our fridge 3 times. The humidity in the rooms was terrible and the marble floor in the hallways were all slippery due to the humidity as well. The night club is not free! You have to pay for...

We arrived mid afternoon, and we were warned on the transfer bus not to drink the tap water, although apparently ok for brushing teeth and showering. It tasted pretty foul so ended up using bottled water after 1st brushing. Room clean, well presented. Air con was a git to figure out, but once we nailed it, it made perfect sense....

Firstly hotel is average, room was clean and the hotel itself is fairly small however adaquate. The food in the buffet is excellent however repetative. The steak house and Italian were not so good, food was bland and not much choice. Enjoyed our stay except for our suitcase locks being tampered with when we left to go on an excursion....

Dear guest, Thank you for choosing the Riu Palace Jamaica once again for your vacation and for sharing your experience with us. For RIU, gastronomy is a very important part of the guest experience.
