We stayed at the Rui from August 15th-August 18th. This was my daughters and boyfriend's first time in Jamaica and we had a fabulous time. I was a little worried after reading a lot of negative comments on this site but just hoped and prayed for the best and it was GREAT!!!! The grounds are absolutely breathtaking, immaculate and just... More

I realise this review is long overdue, not one for airing my views (but enjoy reading others), but i'm so pleased to see that 95% of clients visiting this hotel do really appreciate it's beautiful location, varied food choice, dedicated staff, comfortable rooms, and overall the amazing relaxed Jamaican vibe. Not kidding I looked 10 years younger when we returned!... More

Lovely property, great food, beautiful beach/pool, pleasant & helpful staff, close to town, feeling of safety. I can't imagine what someone would have to complain about here! Any negativity is coming from the guests! If you see an insect (it is a tropical place) it's due to guests bringing plates of food to their rooms and leaving them on the... More

I've been to many all-inclusives in Jamaica. This one was nice but I'm used to much more generosity at the bar. The main restaurant was fantastic, but the other restaurants were sub-par. The nightly shows were very cruise-ship like, but the staff did a great job, especially with their Michael Jackson show.

DON'T BELIEVE ALL THOSE NEGATIVE REVIEWS!! You have to be really crazy not to love this hotel. Firstly, our agent, Sue, in Apple Vacation was very good. She was extremely helpful, patient and open. When we arrived, all i could have said was "Wow!" The place is HUGE!! but beautiful, especially the beach! The next thing i noticed was the... More

We visited RIU June 21 -25 celebrating our 11yr anniversary. Check in was very easy. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had the most incredible beach front suite. It was like we had our own private beach. We watched as couples got married on the beach our entire stay. It was so beautiful and fitting for our anniversary.... More
