Let me first start by saying we are an unpretentious couple who had booked this holiday hoping for some of the luxury we experienced at the Riu Cancun. We were left bitterly disappointed by our experience at the Riu Montego Bay. We aren't snobs, we stay in budget hotels a lot but this holiday left a lot to be desired....

We stayed here for two weeks and were greatly disappointed, this hotel can not be a 5 star. We contacted the duty manager at reception explaining that we were unhappy about the lack of food, the variety , the service and how long certain dishes took to cook. Breakfast , lunch and dinner were all the same, u we're waiting...

This review is long over due. My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights back in January 2012 for our friends wedding. We stayed in an oceanfront suite definitely worth the upgrade after seeing the regular rooms. I will start with the room it was spacious and I liked the fact that there was the main door coming into...

The hotel was clean, great beach and pool. Food was ok, not outstanding. Reservations for dinner were difficult - told they didn't have room at the time we requested, arrived early and were allowed to be sitted early to find only 3-4 tables occupied!! The Main Dining Hall (buffet only) was so crowded that you couldn't get to the food...

1st time to go to Jamaica... "Is this love, is this love, is this love that I'm feeling?" Stayed at The Riu Hotel in MoBay, and the place did not disappoint.

1st time in Jamaica, however not the first time at a Riu hotel, have to say I adapted to the chilled out Jamaican atmosphere from the very first minute we arrived, we were allocated to a room on the edge of the hotel which being a person with difficulties with my back was too far away from all the amenities...

I have recently returned from 10 days at RIU Montego Bay. This was my 10th trip to Jamaica and and first time at an AI. Everything was ok with no real highlights to speak of. The food was adequate but sadly lacked many Jamaican staples. Some curious offerings such as salad bar for breakfast. Interesting as well was coffee or...
