We stayed at Club Negril from Jan 21 to Jan. 27, 2011. After reading all the reviews before we left I was a little apprehensive. Let's start from the top. The ride to the resort is 1 1/2 hrs. Roads are OK - lots to look at. Check in was painless and speedy. We were in building 2 along with... More

We went to the RIU Club Hotel with low expectations due to the number of bad reviews. However, our expectations were exceeded. The entire place was very clean. Yeah, there may be some issues with drink glasses & bottles all over the place and cigarette butts in the sand but to no fault of the RIU staff. They work so... More

Scroll down if you want a quick summary of positives & negatives, otherwise read on! We enjoyed our stay at the Riu Negril ClubHotel. My husband and I (early 30's), along with our 10-year-old daughter, and a friend of ours with her 4-year-old son, traveled there from Jan 13th-20th, 2011. I was a little concerned after reading so many negative... More

This resort is terrible! No shampoo or other shower items like this or soap/ conditioner/ facecothes/small towels.... Sometimes no towels. Has 3 restaurants that you can only book the day of at 8am, so must stand in a long line up. Not enough lounge chairs, if you dont reserve your chair at 6:30am, enjoy the sandfleas! Sand is not clean,... More
