    The room was not ready by the time we got there. The assistant supervisor did not handle the conversations professionally. We have specifically asked for rooms with two bed. but 2 out of 3 rooms that we got had 1 bed. No internet access only in the lobby

    The hotel was nice and the staff was very friendly. The food was not as good as other all inclusive that I have stayed. Reservations were required at three of the restaurants, but the food was not as good as the buffet restaurant. The beds were hard and uncomfortable but bearable. The beach was nice for small kids because there were no waves. Overall a good experience.

  • Excellent resort

    After reading reviews of Riu Montego Bay, I was nervous about my husband and I's vacation there. However, all of my worries were quickly put to rest. One of the things that worried me from other visitor's reviews were the bug problems Riu supposedly has. I took some advice from a review and called ahead to request a room on the top floor to avoid any bug issues. I am very pleased to say, that upon arrival, we were put in a room on the top floor, and my husband and I did not see one bug in our room our entire stay at the Riu. However, we also requested a King bed and instead we had two double beds pushed together... not quite what we were hoping for. Another thing I was worried about because of reviews was the food selection. Many people have complained about the quality of the food. My husband and I loved every restaurant we tried. The steakhouse was by far our favorite, but we also enjoyed the Italian and Asian restaurants very much. The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets were amazing in the main dining hall. So many food choices! Also, the jerk chicken on the beach for lunch was unbeatable! The pool area was absolutely beautiful. The drinks were delicious (I would highly recommend trying the Miami Vice, French Kiss, and Bob Marley). The entertainment staff did an excellent job, we played sand volleyball and water polo with them every day. The major downside to this resort was the beach. We were told it was a man made beach which would explain the rocky sand and murky water. The sand is covered with seaweed once you get in the ocean. We enjoyed kayaking in the ocean, but I would definitely not recommend snorkeling. That was a major disappointment. However, we found that we enjoyed lounging by the pool bar most of the day anyway. Overall, I would definitely recommend this resort to a friend. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go again! Great resort for the money.

  • Great place for the price

    Our stay was short, but sweet. Our room was big enough for 4 even though it was just 2 of us. The food was a bit average, but the drinks and staff service made up for it. We plan to go back.
