The excursions made my birthday trip

First I reserved a Family room, I had others book this same resort at the same time. I DID NOT Receive a family room(in which I purchased). Just a standard room with an extra bed. That really sucks. The room was sweaty. Everytime we got under the covers the beds appeared to be wet. The air conditioner DID NOT work. The key kept getting stuck in the door. The view was very ridiculous. My main thing is I DID NOT receive the room I paid for

Wouldnt go again

stayed at Riu Montego Bay. 1st I have to say the staff were incredibly warm. the bar staff at the pool especially Wendall were awesome and the shows at night were always entertaining fun and engaging. the room key is a problem they only give you one key and its an actual key. my son shared a room with his cousin and they constantly had an issue because if one wanted to return to room he would spend 10 to 15 mins looking for her to get the keys and vice versa. what I thought was disgusting was the pool. it doesn't get cleaned at all. someone comes by and skims around the pool but no real cleaning. 3rd day we were there and someone threw up in pool and the next day the stench was still there and we saw residue needless to say I did not use the pool. unfortunately it was right by the swim up bar the beach was clean but there is a lot of seaweed not floating or anything encrusted in the sand so i recommend swim shoes and a floatie. they do offer which i took advantage of paddle boarding pedal boats and even sailboats. that was fun the beach grill served amazing jerk bbq chicken the lines were off the hook people lined up to get some but it was worth the wait. i did not care for the restaurants we were a group of 15 and it was always a wait of 40 minutes to get seated and we were always disappointed with the food. tried the Asian we didn't like it tried Italian and that was a no go. but the buffets had a variety of different food and they were great. rooms have an awesome liquor dispenser but apparently room service and the mini bar are 2 different crews and i never got bottled water in my fridge daily. i would just refill my one water bottle with this lemon infused water they had by the swim up bar. i would return to Jamaica I just wouldn't return to RIU the pool was just gross and ruined my last 2 days because i would not get in the pool and the beach again too much seaweed. the rooms do need updating but they were clean. i have been to various trips with cheap Caribbean and this is my first bad review.

Relax

Hotel was great but pools closed too early and at random times. Food was not fully cooked. Staff was excellent and friendly. Rooms were spacious and comfortable!

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.

It's why people continue to flock here.

You in? Thought so.

It's time to get your Riu on.



DINING
