Service is fantastic. Rooms are clean and the beach is great. The entertainment is decent. Plenty of staff to serve you well and plenty of food and drink locations. The sit-down reservation dinners are superb,and all other buffets are more than adequate in food quality. Never had a bad meal on site while I stayed at Riu. Downtown negril is a waste of time, unless you want to be perceived as thurston Howell iii walking through Harlem. The panhandlers in town are the worse,the guys on the beach are rather bothersome at times but relax after a couple "no thanks mon"s. deltoy at the front desk was extra accomidating, and roydel at the "palace" bar was extremely helpful with tourism info and logistics. I strongly suggest a boat ride with howard & Ben on the beach just outside of the resort property. They have the nicest boat and it has a roof which is a luxury at times. They are very safe and honest as well as act like a go between for locals,panhandlers etc if you decide to hit shore elsewhere. They will show you the best time for the money, by far. They bave a white boat with a blue roof on the south end of the beach. Tell them kevin and Nat sent you......
