Not long back from a 28 nights stay here, there were some niggles which were dealt with promptly by the staff. There is nothing that we can say that was negative about our stay when to comes to the resort itself. The food was great, rooms very clean and all the staff we spoke to were very polite ( we made sure we spoke to every staff member we met) and friendly. The only bad thing was the private testing service on site they didn't like the fact that we paid in GBP and added an extra charge

First I must made mention of the Telephone Operator Dwight, he was very informative. Kemar at check in was not welcoming, I went to 2025 ( door was open) instead of 2045, Lenox at the front desk was very nice he went and got the keys reprogrammed and had a lady open the door while he did so. Lenox at the Buffet was very nice, he along with the other sang me happy birthday and brought a cake on his head :) The room was nice, the grounds were beautiful well kept but the food was subpar.

Overall my stay was pleasant. I have stayed at other RIU resorts and this one was just ok. It's not a large resort, however I just needed a short beach getaway. The food was ok. If you want hot food, best time to go to the restaurants is when they first open. Ate at the Jerk Hut on the beach, jerk chicken not really authentic and was cold. All the restaurants were not open, which makes sense because the resort did not have a lot of guests. Entertainment staff worked very hard despite not many people in attendance at activities or show, you would have thought they were performing in front of 100's of people. Beach was not great. Water was not clear and blue, wear water shoes. Sand was not soft but hard. Be prepared for locals to bother you while trying to relax on the beach trying to sell you weed and everything else. Beware of bug bites. I have itchy bumps all over my body. I feel like I did when I got chicken pox as a child! I got upgraded from an oceanview room to an oceanfront! Room was ok. Bed was not comfortable, safe did not work and I had no hot water my entire stay! Housekeeping didn't service room until after 4PM! I had to send the housekeeper away because I needed to take a nap after being out my room since 6am. Best thing about the resort were the people who worked there, everyone was friendly and greeted me when ever they passed me. Restaurant and front desk staff were awesome. I love Jamaica, however I will not stay at the Riu Negril again.

It was a great trip, enjoyed every moment... The food was excellent. Even though it rained we had a great time. Rooms were excellent. The only thing I wish we had a way to get to the room when it rained.
