Had an awesome stay at Riu Montego Bay! Great food and friendly staff! Will go back. Our whole family loved the resort. Close to the airport. The only complaint would be that the bed could be a little more comfortable.

Without a doubt in my mind... This place is just wonderful. ALL of the service people, from maintenance, cleaning, Entertainment Team, waiters, waitresses, cooks and ALL were genuinely caring people and want guests to have an enjoyable time. Food is great! Entertainment is great! Truly, cannot fault this place and I SHALL return!

We have just spent 10 days at this very nice hotel. From the very quick check-in to all of the meals and the entertainment the staff were helpful and always chatty and polite- with one exception which I will come back to later. Big shout for Winston in the sports bar, as well as Cleveland for his card trick, and... More
