We visited Jamica Jan 25th for 2 weeks . Jamiacan's were very friendly and it is hard to fault your stay here. But there were some small dissapointments. The hotel is situated in a bay , which stays shallow for quite a way , so the sea is quite calm ,allowing sport activities to be used , even with strong winds. However the downside is that occasionally , because of the swell the sea is not so clear.
The beach is beautiful and i do not see much differences between this hotel and Rui Tropical , although Negril is the newer of the 2.
The beach runs along the whole stretch of the hotel and no matter what block your room is in, you can walk straight out onto the beach and there is a beach bar at the far end, & the pool bar at the other ! Plus no need to fight for deck chairs here.
Having stayed in other Rui hotels we were a little dissapointed though . We were not allowed to be served drinks/food at the Tropical Bay hotel so never used there facilities- . so the nights & days can be a bit samey.
The entertainment was really poor compared with the other Rius we'd stayed in and nor was the food . Although it was still good .
We are both quite active and enjoy a good drink , and enjoyed our holiday but would probably not go back to this hotel as weve had better . Been spoilt!
