Adults only side is awesome!

I stayed here a couple years back with my now wife and 2 other couples. We stayed on the adults only side and it was great, top shelf liquor, swim up bar, great beach, highly recommend this place.We had access to the family side and went over there one night and yikes! Unless you have kids, spend the extra money for adults only. The family side is MASSIVE! Kids everywhere! And the liquor is basic. They have the club on that side which was fun, but apart from the club stay away from the family side if you're a couple or a single.

Graduation Getaway

We decided on Jamaica to celebrate my sons graduation.....We traveled with 5 people total. Rooms: Somewhat outdated and damp/musty (I don't think this can be helped with the climate) but had everything we needed. Mini-bar and stocked fridge was awesome. Would have preferred two queen beds but there were two full beds pushed together with one headboard (I ended up sleeping in the crack of the two beds....lol) The balconies were a good size and we ended up playing cards on the deck at night which was a lot of fun!! We were in a prime location next to food and pool.Pool: loved the pool. plenty of seating in and out of the sun. I liked the way there was two separate pools, one with bar and one without, so you had a choice. We had to wait for towels poolside a couple times but it wasn't too long of a wait. They had entertainment throughout the day which was fun to watch. Food: Our favorite was the Jerk Chicken in the afternoon.....delicious. Also loved the Italian restaurant (which wasn't really Italian but we loved it).....Lots of choices for everyone. Fresh fruits were plentiful and typically at the dinner buffet they would cut up fresh fruit(mango, coconut, star fruit) for you at your request. Beach: beach was ok......we really didn't spend much time on the beach. There were a few peddlers that were there selling trinkets on a paddle board. Security presence on the beach as well. Not a big beach to take a walk on. We noticed that if you walked towards the Sandals resort next door there was a smell of gas/oil and we noticed there was frequently a small oil slick on the water. There was not someone that took drink orders around the pool (our only other all-inclusive experience did this in Punta Cana and we loved it)....if you want drinks they are plentiful but you have to go to bar to get(and the bar is busy)! Lastly, if you wanted to walk towards the other Riu resorts, guests at this hotel are not allowed on other properties but guests on other properties allowed on this property. Would have enjoyed just walking down the beach onto other properties.

Second time there ❤️

Very friendly staff. Stayed in April and November and loved it both times!The food was good and plentiful. Not a huge resort but not as far to walk from rooms to anywhere on the resort (a big plus for me) pool and beach are just steps apart.Pay the extra and get a beachfront room. It is worth it! Just steps to the beach and amazing views ❤️ Planning to return this November!!!!

Ya Mon!

I was just there last week from 6/13 to 6/18. Let me start by saying that the room we stayed in was a bit dated. We had to bring our own luggage to our room, however the property was beautiful. The staff on the property were ok, saying hello to your guest would be nice. We know that you're working hard long hours and you're tired, but a smile never hurt no one. However; I want to give a special Thank you to Charlett from Scuba caribe water sports, Chop Chop from the jerk chicken hut, Sunshine the entertainer, VinRoy from maintenance, LansRoy from Little Italy, Juan Carlos the bartender and Moma D the tour operator, they were the highlight of my time in Jamaica. I will never forget about you guys and we will meet again, please keep up the wonderful work that you do, one love always. I miss you guys already lol. The food was pretty good, the shows were priceless and the DJ's at Pacha differently had me and my family dancing all night. Let me also mention that I never met a nation of people that loves there country so much, which makes me love it too! Also Thank you to the main security gentleman lol

I remember why i didnt want to return

Plain and simple, the beach is man-made and very shallow slimy and lots of plants growing in it. It only comes up to your waist at most. The food was mediocre at best maybe I've become spoiled. The catamaran that takes off from the hotel was enjoyable. It was hot as always. I wasn't enthralled with the alcohol that was available since it was well alcohol. I will speak some positive it is a large pool but I can only assume everybody's urinating in it since there are only two bathrooms and when I went in there nobody else was in there. Evening shows that did not go to because there was nothing to look forward to that I thought was worthy to stay up. Rooms were fine. Staff was fine. Room was well kept clean.
