Well done to Riu Montego Bay who managed to avoid the usual pitfall of the all-inclusive hotels in providing an experience divorced from the country and leaving tourists of no sense of the country they are in. I was surprised by the number of Americans at the hotel and because of its name I worried that it might leave out...

Great overall holiday - very relaxing, if you are not laid back this is not the holiday destination for you. The hotel was clean and the staff very friendly, all you would expect from a RIU really. The restaurant was fantastic so much choice. Loved the jerk chicken and pork - watch out for the bones they beat the chickens...

I loved it! It was my first time to Jamaica. The beach was gorgeous. The pool was very large with a great swim up bar, in pool loungers and in pool bar tables. The people were really friendly and staff always remembered us. One day a maintenance man asked if we wanted coconuts, climbed a tree, cut them down and...

I just returned from Riu today and felt compelled to write a review. I'm not sure why there are so many complaints about this hotel on here, because we had a fabulous time. The food is great, (ask for CC at the evening buffet, he's awesome) the property is beautiful and the service is excellent. However, it is a huge...

I have traveled to 5 different countries and this was by far one of my favorite trips! This place is so beautiful and everyone at the resort was so nice.

Wife, granddaughter and myself had a very good stay. Food was good (got to try the jerk at the Mobay Restaurant on site). We reserved at the Steak House one evening. Service was good. Watch where they put you as there are no elevators to the upper rooms. If you insist they will move you. Didn't like it that they...
