Hotel was ok. Nothing special. I had a good time because of the ppl I was with. The rooms need major updating from the bathroom to the bedspreads that look like curtains that match the furniture and the old school box tv's. They're in the middle of construction in the middle of the resort so there are workers carrying heavy... More

I had the pleasure of vacationing at this hotel Aug 4-11. I went with my 13 year son. We had a great time. By the second day he made friends and he only came out of the pool to eat or go back to room. The hotel was lively, the staff was friendly. Our room was spacious and always cleaned.... More

I travelled to This hotel with my wife and had heard some negative reviews, s i was a bit weary. All unfounded. I found this to be a very clean, fun, safe hotel with a great family atmosphere and great entertainment. To make your choice of weather it is for you or not, it is very big and very busy.... More

All inclusive hotel, food and drinks were really good but I wanted more authentic dishes. The pool had a bar right in the water which was really great and on the beach they had a jerk chicken grill, which was delicious.

My family and I arrived at Riu Montego Bay on July 29th. We stayed the week and enjoyed each day there. First off, this property is less than 10 minutes from the airport. We love this feature as we were the first guests to be dropped off at our resort, and within minutes we had a welcome drink in hand... More

Upon check in to this amazing hotel or so the pictures show you, it was quite obvious that a room for 3 people was not going to be available, this holiday cost myself and my other family members 1,800 pound each, it took them a while to give us a room a lot of talk between staff on the desk...

Positives- The location was pretty decent, not far from the Sangster Airport and many tourist attractions. The pool area and lobby are nice. The rooms are cleaned daily. They have a swim up bar. Negatives- the rooms are outdated and are in need of a renovation. They have a bar in the room, but the ice is on a different... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights at this Riu. We stayed in a Riu in Punta Cana a little over a year ago and did find most things here better. The food was very good. We didn't have a chance to do any of the specialty dinners, but did enjoy the different themes dinners each night. Jamaican night was very... More
