My family and I stayed at Riu Tropical bay resort mid September with Covid restrictions. Everything was seamless. Ryan Brown from the breakfast/ lunch buffet went above & beyond everyday. He was great!

Great trip to riu tropical bay negril. Took dudley Warren of big ship tours private Airport transfer and was great.. he is reliable and safe.. No covid related concerns at all. Everything very clean and felt safe. Masks worn at restaurants and bars until seated. Some worn but for the most part did not need to by the pool and beach. Beach was great as usual. No seaweed and clean, calm water. Vendors out selling the usual but they are nice people just trying to get by. Shout out to Richard, Roy and Garth who were the best beach waiters. Restaurants were good. Krystal was the best, then the Italian place and steakhouse.

I enjoyed my week-long stay at Riu. The service and hospitality was second to none. I wanna give a special shout out to the lovely waitress Samantha. She was so pleasant and attentive. Also, the great bartenders Andrew, Gray, Marlene, and Nicholas. Finally, I just want to say the food was abundant and absolutely delicious. Can't wait to return. Oh yeah! They're Covid precautions and cleanliness was top notch. Great Job Riu!! Danielle
