I traveled with a group of 30 for a wedding from the baby's to the adults everyone enjoyed theirselves and didn't want to leave...from the activities to the food everything was great!!! The staff was very helpful with helping us choose of resort activities and night life. I would definitely stay there again.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in the Riu Montego Bay. Reading the reviews I cannot believe what some people have written. I have to say our holiday was fantastic. On arriving on the 13th September the check in was warm and welcoming. The welcome meeting the following day with Jackee, the rep, was thorough and very...

All good very relaxing. As soon as you check in go to the desk next to check-in and reserve your dinners for your stay they fill up quick. Otherwise you will only eat at the buffet. Dinners are good. Buffet could be better. Entertainment could be better. Rooms are a little dated but still nice. Service was good but they...

Have just returned after 2 weeks at the Riu Montego Bay and have to say it is truly fantastic. The resort itself is beautiful and very clean & well maintained. The pool is fantastic and the beach lovely. No sign of the seaweed that others had reported. Every member of staff from the cleaners & gardeners to the bar staff...

We have stayed in other RIU properties and this is comparable. Other recent reviews are right; don't miss the jerk chicken for lunch (they cook 250 to 300 chickens each day); evening entertainment and daily activities are varied, high energy and better than expected (you could get an eyeful at the end of the Jamaican dance show on Friday night...

This resort was clean, the staff was very friendly, helpful and entertaining. They have activities all day and evening for the adults and children. Plenty of choices for food and drink. The jerk hut on the beach was great for an afternoon snack. Plenty of free non motorized activities and options otherwise. The resort is also close (within walking distance)...

Had an amazing stay in this hotel, food was lovely and staff were so friendly and such hard workers. All the entertainment staff are always happy and full of energy.

We are the kind of travellers that get along with the ups AND downs that resorts have and nothing is different about this resort. (We had to ask for a different room as many have due to the smell but we didn't get mad about it. It's the tropics so it's going to happen. We got a cocktail and they...

I just returned from the Riu Montego Bay and have to say I was thoroughly disappointed. For the amount you spend to stay there, you are being ripped off. First and foremost, we arrived at the hotel after check in time and our rooms were not ready. There are no elevators so you have to walk about 1/2 mile to...
