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.

  • teresab35 : Portsmouth, United Kingdom

This hotel is very modern and the rooms are fantastic. lovely size with a minibar and optics all included. 24 he room service is also included, but we didn't use it. Wi Fi is available throughout the hotel at no extra charge.went to the steakhouse 3 times, and Joven was always an excellent server. didn't use any of the other restaurants, as the buffet was always good plenty of choice.The staff were all helpful and always had a smile on their faces. I can name a few who always gave us excellent service. Audley at breakfast and lunch and Paul at the pool and beach, really stood out. Would quite often deliver a drink on his head.would definitely stay here again

Overall a great resort.

The service on this resort deserves a 6 out of 5. I simply can't say enough good things about what I consider to be the absolute best service I've ever received anywhere in the world, in any country, in any restaurant or hospitality situation. From the wait staff, to the cleaning crew, to the room service staff - each of them are incredibly pleasant, extremely hard working, and contagiously happy. It is inspiring to see. And, they're all insanely funny. Order nachos at midnight and I guarantee the delivery person will make you laugh.The Entertainment crew is the hardest working I've ever seen. I asked Dr Fun Fun how long his hours were (likely 12 a day, 6 days a week) and he said, "I don't count. It's just a lot of hours of fun." This crew will make your stay enjoyable with their humility, humor, and zest. At night, you have the option for any of the three resorts. My wife and I preferred the more intimate Rui Palace entertainment but having access to all three resorts means you have tons of options and will never be bored. The food is very good in the buffet (5 out of 5) at all times of the day and the jerk is the best you'll ever have. The Al'a Carte restaurants were simply okay. The service and presentation are impeccable but I preferred the buffet food. The resort is very clean and the rooms are just like the photos.The CONS are the planes and the size of the beach. I didn't mind the beach and this is what you get in Montego Bay. If you want a more vast beach you'll need to make the bus drive to Negril. Also, we quickly got over the planes but I can see how it may bother some people. They are loud and distracting but you'll get over it.

Best Hotel in Montego Bay

This hotel is just a few short miles from the airport. The front desk staff were very easy and pleasant to work with. They have plenty of food and drink options. Love the room service! The waiters and waitresses were always on point. Kenroy was so much fun because he always had a game to play. The food was never disappointing. The jerk chicken was my husbands favorite at lunch! Kaneesha and Paul were our drink servers. Love them... Always there when we needed something. The entertainment was great. The steel drums are a must see!

This was the 5th time in Jamaica with Riu but this was the best by far and we are going to book again for next year.The modern building and lovely sized rooms .close to the airport.Some people may find the noise of the aircraft to much but the planes noise passed within 15 seconds about 10 to 15 times a day. The Palace has an open plan of the bathroom with only a door on the toilet and shower, some may find this not to their taste.However, what makes this this hotel great is the amazing staff they all take time to greet you and make sure you are having the perfect holiday. and when you are leaving they say see you next week.The manager Manual is seen wandering the hotel everyday to make sure all is well and will take time to talk.I'm reluctant to name names of excellent staff as there were all brilliant but must say the entertainment team were superb and was the lunch time servers Dudley and Oral.A special mention of Maureen, the cleaning lady in the Aqua bar who contently having to sweep the sand away from the bar, she was always smiling and cheerful.
