What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

The epic-sized pool goes on for days and has room for everyone. No trouble finding a lounger here.

Delicious Jerk Chicken at the shack on the beach. It'll be your daily pit stop.

You'll love the "drink of the day" - fun, sometimes fruity, and definitely worth a cheers.

Every room has a balcony and nothing beats sitting outside your room with warm ocean breezes.

The luscious Renova Spa does wonders for your body and soul. You'll thank us later.

Carve out time to snorkel off the gentle shores of Jamaica. The plankton shine brightly and can't wait to see you.

Put on your dancing shoes because the band at the Coconut Bar has got some serious steely tunes.


What We'd Change

Reserving dinner seating at the a la carte restaurants is a must. Book early - even before you arrive, if you can.


Why You Should Go

Just a hop, skip and a jig away from Sanger International Airport in Montego Bay. Beachy drinks await.

Dunns Falls is a great day trip - hiking, zip lining, snorkeling, picnicking - it's a blast for everyone.

The staff is amazing. Seriously, they take care of it all. You just sit back and let the pampering begin.

Bring your own colorful beach towel if you want to easily see your lounger by the pool.

Start off your day at the sweat-busting gym. Always good to get those toxins out of your bod.

If you're there in July, check out the Reggae Sumfest. Jammin', mon.

Hotel Description

Riu Montego Bay in Jamaica: Jammin' Good Times Along Mahoe Bay Beach

Ditch your 9 to 5 and get yourself to Riu Montego Bay. (Really - we wouldn't disappoint you.) With Riu, you know what level of crazy good service you're going to get. So not only will you have everything you've ever wanted at this resort (and then some), but you're also going to meet some of the most charming, endearing people - you're in Jamaica, mon.

You in? Thought so.

Riu hits all your favorites - a buffet with a little bit of everything (plus cooking stations). For dinner, plan ahead and reserve a spot at Kalu, Little Italy or Mahoe Bay. Oh, and for lunch or an afternoon snack, the jerk chicken on the beach has a loyal following.
