Great for relaxing on the beach or poolside. The Buffett is good...the restaurants are worth the trouble. Staff is very non-chalant about service. They'll get around to waiting on you eventually. Bartenders do a good job but plan to go get your own...the wait staff is very slow both poolside and in the lobby. There is no fun beach bar...

We stayed 5 nights in mid March. The weather got better every day and the water was beautiful. We would start each day on the beach with 2 chairs and an umbrella placed wherever we chose. There were a few "vendors" but if you don't start anything they don't bother you. The people who said bring your own insulated cup...

We enjoyed time with friends than as a couple for half our trip. Staff were wonderful and eager to assist in any way. Special thanks to Samantha. She definitely goes above and beyond. We enjoyed the food and libations. Lots of premium quality alcohol to choose from. The a la carte restaurants were excellent. Duck was fabulous. Served lobster and...

This hotel kinda of grows on you as days go by. My reaction on the first night was that Riu should be ashamed to have its name on this hotel. Nothing seemed to be upto the standard of a Riu palace. On that first night, we were served a lobster tail the size of a shrimp tail!!(No exaggeration here) and...

We stayed here and one of my best friends got married here. The drinks were flowing and the food was good. The staff were friendly and professional. The resort took good care of us and also handled the wedding with such class. I would recommend any one to stay here. The pool was small but i came for the beach...

I've been to 3 other RIU resorts this one was a little smaller and older then the others. We had some great waiters throughout or trip and we showed our appreciation for their great service. We did have an incident where I was in my parents room and I walked out of the bathroom and stepped on a nail that...

Just returned from the RIU 3 days ago. This was our 3rd stay in a RIU Resort. In fact, we are rewards members. We really liked the other 2 in Jamaica that we stayed at so we thought we would try the RIU Palace Paradise. It was nowhere near as nice as the others. Very old building with a smell...

My adult family and I stayed at the Hotel Riu a few weeks ago. We really liked our rooms, the views, facilities, and the service each day was excellent. The staff were friendly and welcoming considering their really long hours. We ate at the buffet most meals. There was a great deal of variety and the food was generally really...
