Our Opinion

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.

Located just 20 minutes from Montego Bay, this new adults only property offers guests top-quality service, comfort and a wide range of lavish amenities all under one roof. Nestled in the tranquil Mahoe Bay, this all inclusive resort is a tropical sanctuary ideal for spending intimate moments under the sun. Hit the green for some rounds of golf at the many world-class courses nearby, traverse the beach on horseback, sail, surf or simply relax by the shimmering pool. Couples, singles and groups won't be able to resist a Jamaica vacation at Riu Palace Jamaica, which offers a selection of rooms and suites featuring balconies or terraces, and caters to guests' unique travel needs. Riu Palace Jamaica serves up international cuisines bursting with flavour at the buffet and many a la carte restaurants featuring everything from Japanese favourites to Italian delights, beachside snacks to delicious grilled varieties. If you are looking for an ultra relaxing retreat for you and your sweetheart, or a sensational spa getaway with the girls, the wellness centre features a luxurious spa with soothing treatments and therapies. Unforgettable RIU vacations in Jamaica start at the Riu Palace Jamaica.

Just stayed at Riu Place January 7-14 2017. Where to start as you walk into the resort no one greets you you are on your on. Go to the front desk they check you in and yes you get arm bands to wear and towel cards for your beach towel. Front desk staff to say the least not friendly they go over the the four restaurant you have to choose from in the evening otherwise buffet menu never changes. Buffet only for breakfast and lunch and pretty much same food everyday. Room service menu is horrible. If you ask a staff member where something is instead of showing you they point to where it is that is if you can find someone beside going to the front desk then you feel like you are inconvenience them . Resort is over the flight path of the airport so you are hearing airplanes almost all day. Rooms reminded me of a hospital room with a little purple thew in here and there. When I got to our room and pulled the sheets back there was hair in our bed!!! Of course they could not move us do to being "sold out " they did change the sheets but still gave me a dirty feeling the whole time. You do not make reservations for the restaurant but it is a joke they have four restaurant that open at 6:30 each restaurant holds about 22 people so if you don't get in line to eat at 6 you are eating at 9 or later which might not bother some or you eat in buffet which you eat in for breakfast and lunch EVERYDAY no other choices. No spa or water sports at this resort you have to go next door to sister property which the sister property is rated lower than this property. They say they have pool and beach bar service very poor if you wanted a drink you could never find someone very rare if you did. This property is very quiet nothing going on there again you have to go to sister property. There is no way this resort should be rated a 6 more like a 4. All over very poor resort and staff.

Great vacation !!!

Riu Palace. Great experience great staff. Excellent food, clean and well kept. Went over to Atlantis and my experience was terrible. Looks are deceiving. Atlantis looks more modern but was disappointed with the staff all the way up to their management. Riu Palace is by far a class above Atlantis.

Best Vacation Yet!

What can I say about Riu Palace Jamacia! This is an amazing adult only hotel with excellent staff, food, drinks and even guests! We were very lucky and had an upgrade to an ocean front jacuzzi room. Thank you!Non smoking, except in designated areas! Close to airport so there is some aircraft noise on occasions. Can't wait to go back to this hotel.Stayed January 2016 - Great New Year's Eve party on the beach!

We've stayed here for a friend's wedding, and all I can say is WOW! Cleanliness, food, drinks, entertainment........all were over the top! I don't think I would consider staying anywhere else if we were to ever return to Montego Bay. There are 3 RIU resorts all situated side by side. The Palace is an "adults only" resort as is the Reggae next door. The other RIU is a family resort, but as a guest you do have access to all three so there is no shortage of food or entertainment options.We had a standard garden view type room which was very elegant. One evening there was champagne and chocolate covered strawberries brought to our room complimentary. There is a fully stocked liquor cabinet and fridge containing water, juice, soda and beer. Whirlpool tub, a ginormous walk in shower and double sinks in the bath area.The only complaint, and it is a very minor one, is that our room was facing the back side of the RIU Reggae and we must have been where they kept the garbage dumpsters because every morning at around 7:00 am (just like clock work), we were awaken by the sounds of the dumpster containing glass recyclables being dumped. That resort must really go through a ton of bottles! Like I said, not a big deal but slightly annoying when you are on vacation and trying to sleep.I would highly recommend anyone going to the Montego Bay area to consider the Riu Palace as their resort of choice, you will not be disappointed!
