Vacation with the wife and 5 friends and family. Room - hot water was great, it’s a big room but the queen bed was two full beds. Takes a lot to get beer or Sprite in your fridge. Restaurants - buffet is not amazing for breakfast or lunch, but not terrible. I’d assume it’s better non-Covid. Lunch at Pepes is really good. Bars - quick service. Have to wear a mask, but you should expect that. Late night food - 0 out of 10. Only option is sports bar. Bad hotdogs, bad hamburgers or nachos with cheese. My opinion - still a great resort, everyone working their butts off, entertain is great, entertainment crew is amazing, a great place to stay

We have stayed at the rius in Negril and in Ocho Rios but this one was definitely one off the best in regards to feeling welcomed. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly and we had a great time. The room was fine and mini bar restocked every other day, beach was OK but not the best especially if you've been to Negril. There are 5 swimming pools with one swim up bar which is the liveliest, especially around 3pm in the afternoon when the entertainment staff start the afternoon activities. We stayed for 8 days but wish we stayed for longer but due to flights we were unable too (stupid covid). The staff at the hotel were very good with the coronavirus rules such as wearing their mask and reminding you to wear yours when in the buffet, recpetion, at the bar and swim up bar. The buffet was open everyday for breakfast,lunch and dinner and the Jerk Hut was open everyday for lunch. Each reaturant was open on 2 days off the week, especially on weekends when it was the busiest. Hand sanitizer was used when entering the restaurants. We used the free transfers and had a private transfer going home which was a nice touch. Late checkout is a little expensive which cost around £40 for 3 hours as they charge per person so more than likely easier to pay for an extra night! We used the paddle boards and pedalos and also went to the water park a few times all were fabulous. I've seen the shows numerous times but they were as amazing as I remember and we enjoyed them every night, especially the pre shows with the guests taking part. The entertainment went on until 12pm after the shows finished with a DJ playing music. The nightclub is closed due to covid so was unable to go in there. Now onto the staff who by far make this hotel what it is. The bar staff and all off the resturant staff we had serve us were amazing, remembered our orders and were always up for a chat when we spoke to them. The entertainment team though were by far the most welcoming and are an absolute credit to this hotel. Smiley, Chocolate, Smallz, Rolly Polly, KeKe, Kenzie, Shampoo, Extreme, Christina and Melvin all took their time to speak with us every single day and their dancing and work ethic is amazing. Chocolate was amazing on the microphone when doing the shows and always got the crowd involved. Smiley was always dancing and teaching people to dance if they asked and spoke to us everyday. We truly have made some friends for life and will be coming back in the future! Lastly the reception staff helped me when I had a query involving one off the cats who had a broken leg. As I have 2 cats at home I was really sad everytime I walked past it on my way to the buffet. I contacted Animal Haven who put me in touch with the JSPCA who in turn advised me off the process. I contacted reception and within 3 days the cat was collected and treated by the Animal Haven rescue, for which I am truly greatful. We will definitely be back next year to enjoy the hotel In full swing hopefully when all restrictions have been lifted!

I stayed there on Sept 30th to October 3rd and I must say this is an amazing resort as I previously stayed at Riu Reggae September 1st to the 3rd (twice in the same month, yah I know😁😁😊) Checkin: I had a very smooth check-in and my room was also ready so I didn't have to wait. Amenities: There are a lot of amenities that are offered at this resort. Multiple pools to use so you don't have to be worried about covid and the crowd as there were 5 pools there to choose from. The Waterpark was amazing and I enjoyed going there to have fun. Food: I enjoyed going to dinner mainly as the food was delicious and there were multiple à la carte restaurants to choose from. I enjoyed dining at the Steakhouse as the food was very good. The waiter, Oraine, in the Kulinarium Restaurant service was impeccable which I really appreciated. The are multiple bars that are open so could always get something strong to drink. I enjoyed the swim up bar and shout out to Latoya! She was very hardworking and eager to serve us whatever we wanted at the swim up bar. Entertainment: The entertainment team at this resort was good even though I prefer the entertainment team at Riu Reggae. They could do with more activities during the day instead of kickstarting activities in the late afternoon. Nonetheless, they had a great vibe which I enjoyed and they kept us entertained. Shout out to Chocolate,  Kenzie (my favourite😁👍), Shampoo, Rolly Polly, Smalls and the others. Y'all really kept the resort in a great vibe. I will definitely be back again as I am a Riu Class member.

The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The dinner staff was very attentive, to the point the waitress remembered my morning drink and table I liked in the morning for breakfast. My room was super nice and very clean. The pools were awesome and bartenders at the swim up bar were the best. The food was so damn good. I can’t say enough positive things about this resort. Will most definitely visit again.
