Believe the 3 star reviews

We aren't fussy so I didn't want to rely on the middle road reviews wth complaints. We can make the best always....that said I went ahead and booked anyway. The people are nice and staff is friendly. The food at the buffet is nice. The a al la carte restaurants are also buffet which is weird but we aren't pretentious so no big deal.Our first room faced the back and had two beds so tiny we couldn't fit 2 adults 2 small children) The phone didn't work , would short out....nor did the tv remote. We called for extra pillows as you get 1 each only. No one ever arrived.. The next day they moved us to a family room. Bigger and with a "pool view" lol except you face the buildings that surround the pool. NO VIEW.There are no coffee makers in the rooms and no wine. I called to ask for a glass of champagne and was told it was $20!This is a spring break resort and wouldn't recommend for families. No kids pool and the beach(it pains me to say as who complains about any beach really!!!) is gross!!! Rocky, full of sludge and you can't see anything! We generally spend our full vacation on the beach but spent 1/2 a day and were forced to the pool. Lots of drunks! I would have loved this resort 20 years ago on spring break but that's it.The gym is sufficient and could obtain a good workoutThe evening shows start at 9:30 so we didn't go as our 5 and 7 year couldn't make it. Thank goodness they were tired as the music blasts till 11:00 and can be heard even through my ear plugs. Also the beds were extremely hard.The pool is nice although it's the only resort claiming to be 5* that doesn't have pool wait service. Neither does the beach. We are still at the resort and I thought I would review as there are a large number of deficiencies. While we are enjoying the basics and the wonderful time together as a family, I wish we would have booked elsewhere. The Jerk chicken hut on the beach is wonderful and a must try!We are at the pool and have been waiting for towels since 9:30 this morning! I have never been to a resort that has no towels at the pool?If you are travelling with kids go to the Jewel Runaway Bay. We went last year and I'm kicking myself for not rebooking there!Oh and cereal cats everywhere! Wifi so bad I can't add photos it takes too long.

We would go back! Pros and Cons

STAYED JAN 9TH TO 16TH 2018 AND THESE ARE MY THOUGHTSPROS:- Check in was quick and painless. We requested to be in building 5 and Leon made it happen. - Grounds were very well kept, with a constant effort to upgrade, paint and repair. - Beautiful pool with one for the swim-up bar and a separate one if you prefer a quieter swimming space. - The drinks were amazing! I promise you that they do not water anything down! I actually found that they were a little too strong sometimes. - Activities for the kids, with a cute area and pool for them. I didn't see anyone using the pool, but the play area was always full of kids. - Staff was amazing! They seem to be very happy people in Jamaica, and we never felt the need to tip - we just did because we wanted to. Everyone really wanted to make sure that the guests had what they needed (until it cam to food - read cons). The waiter and waitresses were on top of our needs at every meal. This is where I really suggest taking some money with you to tip. - Entertainment staff was top notch. There were around all the time, full of energy, and having fun. Sometimes you just don't want to join in the activities, and i have found that at other resorts they will get in your face until you give in. Here they were considerate and never got in your face. Fun activities and great prizes to give away as well. - The food was FANTASTIC at the buffet for supper, as was the Chinese restaurant. We didn't go to the Italian because we loved the buffet so much. We even has lobster one night!! Breakfast was ok - you will find something you like for sure. There area fresh juices made in front of you and the most amazing fresh fruit. PLEASE go to the beach and have the chicken for lunch. Chop Chop is there every afternoon and he serves up what just might be the best chicken you will ever have. - We never had an issue with finding a spot on the beach or at the pool. I have to say that it was probably because we put our towels down on the way to breakfast, but when we returned to them there were always lots of seats all around us. We didn't have the best wether every day, but on the sunny ones it was like this. By about 12 they were mostly all taken. CONS: - Mahoe Bay Steakhouse was a major disappointment with terribly slow service and poor food. One of the appetizers was deep-fried mashed potato and an onion ring. gross. The baked potato had been clearly cooked either the previous day or in the morning and didn't have any butter on it. Just bad. - Beds are pretty bad and the pillows worse. I brought my own pillow because I read this from other reviews and this is just something I can't do without. The sheets are not comfy at all, and there is only one, and a polyester cover that you cringe if it touches your skin. There is a nice heavy blanket in the closet and that helps the comfort level. - Room was very smelly if we left it without the air conditioner on. In fact, if we did leave it off when we left, and the maid came, she turned it on (probably for this reason) - Bathtub was teeny tiny. It did the job it needed to do, and the shower pressure was sufficient. The water is hot, but I like it hotter - Don't even get me started on the "24 hour Food" bull that they tell you there is. Not anything edible. There is a small fridge that contains salad with the dressing already on it and sinking to the bottom, cold burgers, mystery sandwiches and nothing else you would every choose to eat. There was warm corn chips and queso, but seriously this in not food. There is a couple of breaks in the day where there is no food, and if you are hungry you just need to wait. - The show in the evenings were put on well, but honestly they were all dancing. Its ok with me but my husband wasn't so keen on them - There is supposed to by no smoking outside of designated areas, but there are always the people that figure the rules do not apply to them. The security and staff at the hotel don't do anything to stop them, so i can understand why. Overall this was a great holiday - but I have to argue with the 5 star rating that Sunning gives it. I really want to say that this is correct but it just isn't. The painting in the rooms and throughout the place is terrible and sloppy. There are just certain details that were missing to make it a 5 - I give it a 4

RIU Montego Bay

Loved loved loved this place! Have previously stayed at RIU Ocho Rios and that’s why we chose RIU again. Stayed in Montego Bay this time since super close to the airport. Entertainment group was amazing and really interacted with the guests. They put on games/activities during the day and a show at night. The food was the best I’ve ever had at an all inclusive. Only cons was the beds were rock hard and the planes were kinda loud overhead.

  • Liz_vacationer : Minnetonka, Minnesota

Beds were like sleeping on a cement slab. Rooms are very dated and in desperate need up updating. The food was decent. The bartenders remember your names and were always friendly. The nightly shows were fabulous.

Great food! Wonderful service!

We just got back from a week at the Riu Montego Bay, it was our first time to Jamaica (2 couples). The rooms were clean, the food was always great (do NOT miss the Jerk Chicken on the beach from 12-2pm!), and the staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Because we were travelling with another couple, we loved that we were given side-by-side rooms. There was a short hallway behind a door that sort of "connected" our rooms, which made visiting/getting organized for the day much easier.The hotel is only a 5 minute drive from the airport, and many of the popular sight seeing packages are only 60-90 minutes away in Ocho Rios. We booked one tour to the Blue Hole and the Dunn's River Falls through our on-site SunWing agent, and lucked out having a private tour (the whole bus to ourselves!) with our incredible tour guide, MoMo. Not only was lunch included (at Usain Bolt's restaurant: Tracks and Records), but we also made a side trip to grab some authentic meat pies at Juici Patties. Yum!
