Our Opinion

The Riu Palace Tropical Bay offers great food in both the a la carte and buffet restaurants. The beach here is wonderful with lots of shade from the palm trees and clear calm waters. Staff are helpful and happy to serve, however there is no pool or beach service which you usually get with Riu Palace resorts. The pool areas are a little small and the gym could use some updating, but other than that this is still a great resort. An excellent choice in Negril, Jamaica for couples, singles and families.

Riu Palace Tropical Bay

Come and delight in luxury, comfort, impeccable service, all standards of the RIU Palace Hotels & Resorts chain in the renovated Riu Palace Tropical Bay Resort. Located on one of Jamaica's most beautiful beaches, almost all units have been expanded and 24-hour room service introduced as well as the addition of RIU's exquisite haute cuisine restaurant `Krystal'.

Location: Directly on the beach in Negril, 5 min from shopping and downtown, 1 hr drive from the airport.
