I had a great time here. Pepe's jerk chicken hut is a must-try while you're here, but expect to wait in line (I understand why the line is always long though 😋).Big up to Jermain (sp) from the entertainment crew; he does an excellent job of keeping you entertained.

Hotel's Favorite
Normally stay at the Reggae but Montego Bay did NOT disappoint!!! First at check in they upgraded us to building 5 ocean front which was great but for my friend was to far to walk back and forth. Day 2 day I asked the nice Keneil at the front desk to move us closer to the lobby, restaurants and pools. He was happy to do it with out any issues. He put us in 0046 which is right above the sports bar. Which was just perfect! Special thanks to Keneil for all of his help during out 2 weeks vacation. Only 1 thing all the beds are too Hard!!! Rooms are clean, house keeping 100%. Entertainment staff Amazing! Big up to all of the they made us feel like family, Shampoo, Damion, Karesha, Chocolate, Txxx (Jerome), Jiovanni and DJ Frassbox (Paul) Bartenders Wendell, Steve and Dave always kept us good with drinks!!! Waiter Mario was are favorite he was always looking out for us. Big up to Denise and Jason at night making sure the Lobby and bathroom facilities were very clean!!! We will be back!!!

The hotel and rooms were spotlessly clean. The food was amazing and entertainment on point. The staff were also nice and friendly. I would definitely stay here again the next time I’m in Jamaica! I wish there were however a free shuttle to the hip strip. The taxi prices were more expensive than local taxis.

We have stayed at RIU for the last 8 years and collected what we thought was quite a few points via RIU class,we have stayed with them sometimes at least three times a year and even got married their and honeymooned in Ochi,what a con,checked out 3 hours late and they took all the points and we still paid 10 US dollars,forget loyalty as it is now a 18-30 holidays with bad behaviour by large groups from the states…..we spoke to RIU class who were less than useless ……they have now lost our booking for October of two weeks,we are of to another hotel….. and cancelled January booking….learn to look after your loyal customers who keep returning……….

Stop here over Xmas and until news eve. Great food and lovely staff. Staff did everything to make you feel covid safe. My wife enjoyed the yoga. Loads of sun beds around the pool. I would say the buffet restaurant is good as any of the other restaurants. Great cocktails. Downsides - very close to airport, so you hear planes frequently and music can be loud sometimes around bar pool.
