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 Negatives- the rooms are outdated and are in need of a renovation.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

Me and my girlfriend went to celebrate my 40th b-day. Location is very convenient to the airport. The beach is gorgeous, but there is a little eye sore with Sandals building new structures out in the water. The food was not great, but very good; the jerk hut was unbelievable though. The staff was overall very nice and helpful

I planned a last minute long weekend trip for my husbands Birthday. The staff were super friendly and quick with check in. Upon settling in our room we noticed that there were Ants crawling around one of the night stands and I have an anaphylactic allergy😳 My husband Allen down to the front desk to alarm them of this issue....

This place was good. It was my first time in Jamaica and I was looking forward to my trip with 5 friends. The hotel didn't blow my mind (Riu Palace next door is AMAZING) however, it had everything we needed and the drinks kept coming. They had jerk BBQ every day on the beach which was amazing. The beach was... More

Hmm! What can I say. Hotel Riu Montego Bay. I go for the fun and sun, not to be a hotel critic. The wife and I traveled to Jamaica with three other couples. Once past the log jam at the airport, we eventually made our way to the log jam at the front desk of Hotel Riu. Is this the... More
