Here we sit in the middle of our vacation week...and the Riu Palace is still a dream. Here's our view...this from 3058, the Jacuzzi Suite. We had booked Oceanfront and loved our first room, 3020. But through some bit of magic, the kind that permeates this lovely place, we find ourselves in this Room. The Front Desk Staff is warm,... More

Food was pretty good. Terrible wine. Cheap vodka. The shows were very entertaining. Talented group of men and women that run the... More

I was a little unsure on what to expect as I had read other reviews that were not overly positive. I really do not know what people actually want from a holiday as this hotel and whole package was everything that you could ask for on an all inclusive holiday. Room Clean airy and bright, two very large beds. The... More

Ignore the bad reviews first of all!! Myself and my partner stayed here June'16 and loved every minute. Our room was always clean and alcohol restored regularly. The safe did need fixed on arrival but was done instantly. The buffet was something new everyday so you cant get bored of it. Breakfast had everything you could wish for. We tried... More

After 3 years married, me and my wife decided to have our honeymoon. Wasn't sure where to go, we picked Jamaica and we found the best deal at Riu Montego Bay. Everything was great, the food, the room, the people, the entertainment.. Every hotel there will be something to complain, even a small thing.. But for the price, for the... More
