We have just returned having had a wonderful time. Beautiful Location, large rooms, huge beds! Fabulous food choice! Clean beach with plenty of sun beds. Staff friendly and very efficient. Nothing negative to say!!
I actually stayed next door in the RIU Palace, however access to amenities @RIU Montego Bay comes with the stay. Unfortunately it is not a perk! The buffet was terrible! The food was always stale and lacked flavor . This resort does not believe in giving you the real Jamaican flavors! The coffee was lukewarm...yuck! I didn't get a chance to try any of the restaurants. Attempted to go to the Asian restaurant and was blatantly snubbed and turned away, even though we arrived 15 minutes before last seating! We were instructed to go to the buffet if we wanted to eat. We noticed another group that came in behind us were actually seated! The majority of this group was of European decent, and my friends and I are African American. Blatant discrimination! When we confronted the hostess who turned us away, she became belligerent and rude! I will never recommend this resort!
Jamaica as usual was lovely and relaxing and a vast majority of the people friendly and a pleasure to meet. If you want to just relax, eat and drink this hotel is fine and was great that there was Jamaican food always available and Jamaican music always playing. However it is a bit like a holiday camp and the entertainment not really my thing. There are many nicer beaches at other hotels and we were also not informed that you have a view of a hotel building site from the beach. Our balcony was also being maintained and painted when we arrived and they were building a new gym next door so we asked to be moved. The rooms are clean and comfortable, there is a great variety of food and the staff are helpful, friendly and very welcoming. It was great that there was a good mix of guests but would urge people to leave the resort and see the rest of the island too.
We booked our all inclusive holiday through Thomson to stay at RIU Montego Bay. If you don't want to read any further, then let me summarise. It was absolutely the perfect choice, I had the best week OF MY LIFE, and I will be recommending and visiting RIU again for sure!The hotel room was rather big for 2 people, had a big bathroom and a closet. The best part was probably the free mini-bar in the hotel room aaaargh! Love that. Every room has a balcony also, ours overlooked the beautiful gardens. Rooms are cleaned every day, and very well if I may say so. The housekeeping staff were so polite and friendly towards us.The pool area is the best. Swim up bar (what could be better?) and tons of sunbeds so there's never a shortage. The hotel is also located right on the beach, where there are also tons of sun beds free of use to the hotel visitors. The beach is super clean, has the nicest jerk-shack in the middle that's open for lunch (the grilled food was unreal!) and the hotel entertainers walk round on the beach, doing loads of activities all day. The paddle boats are free of use also from the hotel, so you can go out on the sea. Super relaxed atmosphere by the beach and pool!Now for my favourite part. The entertainers!!!! This holiday wouldn't of been so amazing had those guys not been there. Special thank you to Kyash, Shampoo and Supreme - 3 of the funniest, loveliest and friendliest guys in the world. Their personalities I will never forget. It was so clear how hard they worked to provide the visitors with excellent entertainment, the shows in the evening just blew me away!! Super amazing bunch of staff. I can't wait to see them again.All 4 restaurants had a huuuuge selection of food. Buffet style which suited me down to the tee. The food was another amazing thing about the hotel. SO YUMMY! Everything from traditional Jamaican food to American breakfasts. I adored it.Overall, I will FOR SURE stay at RIU Montego Bay next time I'm in Jamaica, I refuse to give my money to any other place purely because we received the best service and entertainment by far compared to any other holiday I've ever been on. Yah mon, I'll be back soon ;)
Very dated and old resort. Great entertainment and good food. No top shelf liquor, beach is not very nice, lots of rocks and seaweed. Stay in building 2 if you can.. there are much better resorts that you can goto for the same costs
