Please don't go to this hotel expecting a Luxurious getaway ! You'll definitely be in for a rude awakening . The food becomes very repetitive. After the second day I was over it all. The only source of entertainment is the pool, the man made beach( which was the biggest let down), and the nightly entertainment ( you'll only enjoy...

I'll give you the con's first The beach at the Riu is not the most beautiful beach I have seen in Jamaica. Seaweed paradise and rocky. Not impressed at all. Room smelled moldy when we 1st walked in. We encountered 2 roaches by day 3. Pillows were awful and lumpy. Our beds were done but the sheets never changed?! Our...

Stayed at RIU in June for a week. It took them over 2 hours to find me in their system before they could check me in. After a long day and getting in the oldest bus they had for a transfer, I had to wait to get in my room. As you check in, the front desk staff tells one...

Great Resort! The food choices are pretty good as well.. The only thing that I would change is to have more beer on hand. I have never drank so much Red Stripe in my life! I mean it wasn't that bad but how about giving a guy some choices(Geesh)!

Close to the airport, rooms were clean, staff was friendly... The hotel is still fairly new which is always a bonus... the entertainment was good... but gets repetitive if you visit a lot of Riu hotels... its all the same at all of the hotels. Beds were hard and the only other issue was the hotel is right in the...

My girls and I visited the Riu a couple of weeks ago and was pleasantly surprised. I will start with the GOOD. The concierge from Jamaica Tours became like family. She booked our booze cruise and snorkeling in Ocho Rios and also my Kingston tour. The entertainers, bar tenders, and staff in general were friendly. The property is absolutely gorgeous,...
