Fantastic !

Having just returned from a week in the Riu Montego Bay, I have to say thoroughly enjoyed it.Our first time in Jamaica and we are definitely going back.Hotel staff were very courteous at all times rooms were cleaned daily with fresh towels and the mini bar was restocked every other day. Check in was simple and quick no waiting at reception, off the coach quick and simple form to complete at a table in reception area then envelope with keys and information given and you were away to your room.Weather was fantastic even a couple of thundery showers couldn't spoil it. Food was excellent with a good choice for everybody and the fact that you did not have to book the A La Carte restaurants was a nice touch 1st come 1st served basis was the set up.Just a couple of mild niggly bits, rooms were a bit out dated and really could do with new furniture and a flat screen TV nothing major just a smarten up.One of the pools was out of action due to maintenance but nobody thought to tell us this from Thomson or the hotel until we arrived and found it empty, however this did not spoil our experience but a quick e-mail or text just to advise us would of been nice!!Overall glad we went and would stay again at this hotel.

Needs some TLC

Nice hotel in a prime location with some work it could be really good Food is really nice especially from the jerk hut on the beach The smell of sewerage needs to be addressed as this is rather off putting The reception staff and managers need to gain some customer care experiance rather than a I don't care attitude The beach does need something doing with it unfortunately it looks like nobody cares for it from the hotel Please keeo striving to mirror some of the other carribbean Riu's and this hotel would be really good

Nice Place

Nice resort, good food, great service. Rooms need shampoo and conditioner, a regular staple. Resort staff are very attentive and friendly. Beach was well groomed everyday. Specially restaurants were excellent.

  • Chris J :
Amazing staff, hotel let it down.

The hotel in itself is good, the restaurants always have fresh food out and no complaints there. even in the sports bar at 3am you've got burgers and hot dogs in the fridge if you are peckish. however there is no need to go anywhere else at lunch time other than chop chops jerk hut on the beach. amazing!! As i said in the title its the staff that make this place. from wendell, shauna and ray ray at the pool bar to clive, gawan and demoy in the sports bar. between them they couldn't have made us feel more welcome and entertained.we booked a trip to go on a catamaran cruise to margharitaville and snorkeling on the way. definitely recommend doing this but do NOT book through your tour operator. look for the scubacaribe guys on the beach. cost us a third of the price thomson were charging. The bad points of the hotel are the communication between the hotel and customers. the pool bar was drained for work a few days before we were leaving without any heads up from the hotel or thomson. also a few days in the lock on our room was changed without warning other than a note stuck to the door to tell us to go to reception for the new key.

October trip

We just got back from our 1 week trip to the Riu Montego Bay.First the Pros: The staff was outstanding, very nice and tentative to your needs, A big shot out to Jason and Superman in the dining hall, they were fantastic in the morning and for dinner.The resort it self was clean and nice.The room was clean and stocked every morning, A little dated but your not in your room much. Plenty of hot water. Beds were a little hard but all in ok.Make sure if you go that you stop in and see Chris at the Coconut Bar after 5pm, He was great and He will get your that right away.. (His famous saying)The Pool area was nice, There was 1 section closed down so everyone was in 1 pool, not to crowded though as this time of year its not bad as far as people go. There its plenty of water sports activity to do.Beach area was ok, Not much of a view as your are looking at the Sandals resort huts in the water. The Cons: Alcohol choices are limited especially if you are a beer drinker, only 1 type of beer(Red Strip), This was a big issue for us as we like other beers and it states local and domestic when we booked. We ended up going out and buying our own beer and bringing it back in, which you can do. During the day the premixed drinks don't have a lot of alcohol in them so make sure you ask for a floater. Food was ok, Jerk Chicken on the beach, best by far, Breakfast and Dinner buffets had a lot of choices as well, The specialty Restaurants, Not so good... There is no coffee makers in the rooms or room service, Snacks at night not good either, pre made sandwiches and nachos, so if you need want something late at night take it from the buffet and leave in your room. Riu, you need to do something about this, open up a hall with deserts and stuff from 11pm to 2am or something This needs improvement.The pool closes at 6pm ,which we thought was early especially if you wanted to do a night swim. We were told about the coupons you would be given at the resort, not much of anything there either, a bunch of spa coupons that were off the most expensive spa treatments. Check in and check were fast and easy, Just don't loose your bracelet or it will cost you 100.00, little steep for a plastic bracelet if you ask me..If you are lounging by the pool or in the entertainment area you need to get your own drinks from the bars, very few staff waiting on you, they will take your empties but not many will get you a drink. The entertainment was ok.. A lot of loud music and not much variety, The DJ also interrupting the music and was talking. If you want some vintage Reggae, not much , a lot of techno music. They should do a variety throughout the week. At night the only entertainment is in the main hall for the night show so everyone is in 1 place, need more variety of music throughout the resort.Do your homework on excursion before you go, if you can get it cheaper let the resort staff who try to sell you excursion this as their prices are higher. Taxi service is available at the resort , work with the driver because you can get a little cheaper. These guys are certified through the resort so they are safe and great people. Outside the gate you can get a cheaper ride just do your homework.
