Riu Palace Jamaica
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
With its great location, less than 10 minutes from the airport, you can start your vacation right away. Along with its modern decor, Riu Palace Jamaica has a friendly and attentive staff and delicious dining options as is expected with the Riu chain. There is a selection of activities and entertainment offered at the resort but for the most part, this adults only resort is considered a more of a quiet retreat. And with a private, white-sand beach there are no beach vendors or timeshare sales people. If you are looking for more action, take advantage of the full exchange privileges at the Riu Montego Bay right next door.
I was pleasantly surprised with this resort. Good for a fun trip or quick getaway. The beach was small, but nice. A quiet pool, and an entertainment pool are offered. Decent restaurant options and buffet. No major complaints with the food...not gourmet, but was good. They also have a sports bar which was a nice touch. I love the rooms, as they were modern and clean. Recommended if you are looking to have a great time with friends, or your boyfriend/girlfriend. If you are looking for a luxury resort, or romance- this is not it. Would definitely visit again.
Whilst this is a very positive review, those who have experienced other Riu "Palace" hotels particularly in the Spanish resorts please be advised that this hotel is far more informal than what you may expect. It is extremely lively with a heightened holiday atmosphere and at times the noise levels and guest behaviour more resemble a cheaper package holiday resort. That said there is the usual Riu standard of service and good food. There's a buffet restaurant for dinner and breakfast as well as an Italian, an oriental, a fusion and an American a la carte offering as well as a 24 hour very relaxed beach cafe. The staff are wonderful and as a gay traveler with my partner we were most welcomed and made to feel special. Thank you. We got a room upgrade to a full suite on arrival so we had a great sea views plus two Jacuzzi tubs. The beach is right on the hotel doorstep and the sea is warm and very clear. There are lifeguards on duty throughout the day. Excursion top tip: Don't buy in to the organised trips. For example, we did the Dunn's River Falls climb but did so independently by booking a private taxi and paid on the door to enjoy the falls. We saved over 70% on the price of the package tour trip.
This was our first all inclusive experience. We had a wonderful time. We stayed at the Palace, but the sister properties, Reggae and Montego Bay, were on either side of Palace and if you stay at the Palace you have access to all resorts. We are pretty active vacationers, so the Wednesday to Sunday stay was a perfect amount of time for us. Any longer and we may have had to venture out and explore Jamaica. We sailed, played Volleyball, games in pool, relaxed on beach, and went on a Snuba excursion. The staff was great and very friendly. Met a lot of great people. Not really a complaint to be had. The decor wasn't my cup of tea, but rooms were nice, clean and bed was comfortable. Food was great.
Stayed in Riu Palace for Two Weeks first 2_weeks in July absolutely Brilliant cannot say how much we enjoyed the Hotel pure magic from start to finish clean nice people good facilities beautiful beach and fantastic Carribean sea what more could you ask for??
Riu Palace Montego Bay was everything I expected and more. Very luxurious , beautiful and clean hotel including rooms. Staff makes the experience a plus . Double D was my favorite bartender at the Vogue bar in the lobby ! Super talented , amazing energy and really makes one have an unforgettable time at the Riu. Also, can't forget about Special K , he's a bartender at the Aqua Bar at night and is just as amazing ! Great stuff, great food and overall amazing vibes. Staff makes it memorable, no complaints will b back next year !!! :) -Lucy
