- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We purchased all day passes for 100$ per person which seemed a very high price and not necessarily worth the experience. Beach is OK but of all Caribbean islands I cannot claim that Jamaica has the best beaches anyway. What disappointed us is absence of wifi - not only was it not included into or passes, we could not purchase it because there was no availability for non-guests. You need to be staying at the hotel to purchase access to wifi. At this day and age when even public business in Jamaica have free wifi this seemed a joke! And again, the hotel staff was extremely unfriendly - they didn't even attempt at ensuring a decent experience for us, they just didn't care at all.
Prior to arriving i was a little worried due to the negative reviews, however once i got here i was pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself is laid out well, food good, sometimes excellent, there is always something for everyone. Pools cleaned every morning and plently of space between both pools. All bars serve good drinks lovley frozen cocktails. Staff were always pleasant some more cheerful than others which is always great to have a little banter with. Rooms cleaned every day and drinks refilled every 2nd day. You also have the use of spirts for.free in the room which was nice. The o ly negatives i would say was uf you smoke (which we did) you were only allowed to.smoke in certain areas, this was a pain as i like to lay on my sunlougher with a cocktail in one hand and a cig in the other, we could not do this. We had to get up and walk to the smoking area. The other thing that disappointed me was the beach, it was rather small so you couldnt really go a walk along the beach as it was literally what you could see and the water wasnt as clear as i expexted.All in all the hotel is good and i would still stick to the riu chain as standard is good.If you're a non smoker and more a pool person than beach this hotel is perfect for you.
After our Southwest Flight was cancelled we ended up being shuttled to the Riu Montego Bay for the night. Although this is certainly not a 4 or 5 star resort, we were impressed with the facilities and our rooms. Linens and rooms were clean and tidy (although dated) and the property itself was very pretty. The staff were extremely friendly, and understood our frustrations after a flight cancellation. They checked all passengers in quickly and provided wristbands and keys to our whole plane in less than 45 min. I couldn't believe how efficient the staff was. The entertainment we saw that night was excellent - a steel drum band and dancing were very entertaining. Although this was a surprise stay for us, I was very impressed with the staff and facilities at this hotel!
I traveled to Rui with my sister and Niece. I'm in love with this resort they had an amazing food selection and you can also book a reservation for one of their restaurants if you didn't want to eat from the buffet. Their entertainment staff is the best I've seen in Jamaica and alwayd tried to get people involved. The rooms had your own bar and drinks were replenished upon demand or every two days.Location was great short drive to town and the airport. The beach which was on the resort was clean and the jerk chicken hut was my fave. Will definitely be back.
When I read some of the negative reviews on this forum, I feel these people must have been at a different resort, myself and my wife have travelled extensively and this is in the top three.The staff are absolutely super and the resort is well laid out, its quite big but there are plenty of restaurants and bars around to keep everyone happy.The atmosphere around the resort is so friendly and relaxed, the entertainment staff are the most energetic people you could meet, they entertain at the pool during the day and turn out some top class shows in the evening.The buzz around the pool bar during the day is great and a special mention to Obrian and Wardell who kept the drinks and fun flowing.The beach is fine . I have been on better. the water sports are on the doorstep, the catamaran goes out a couple of times a day.If you cant find fun here , I'm not sure where your going to find it.
