What's to Love

Riu Palace Tropical Bay is in the perfect location. Far less crowded than more popular beaches nearby, Bloody Bay Beach is beautiful with picture-perfect water and soft sand.


What We'd Change

Making reservations for the a la carte restaurants is tedious, but with a little patience and perseverance, the fantastic food at dinner is a highlight of the day.


Why You Should Go

This resort is an all-inclusive Jamaica gem. The top-quality liquor and food and the gorgeous sunsets off the Negril coast is a winning combo.

Hotel Description

Riu Palace Tropical Bay: Rest and Relax in Jamaica with 24-Hour All Inclusive Service

When you're ready for a little rest and relaxation, head to the Victorian-style Riu Palace Tropical Bay in Negril, Jamaica. This beachfront, all-inclusive resort sits on the soft, ivory sands of famed Bloody Bay Beach. Despite its grisly name, the tranquil waters of the bay are so clear you'd swear they came straight out of the tap. The calm setting is ideal for daily water aerobics hosted by resort staff or for simply enjoying the serenity as you work on your tan. Though just as beautiful as the more popular Seven Mile Beach, Bloody Bay Beach is less crowded and offers resort guests the feeling that they have paradise to themselves.

Two quiet pools are prime locations for catching rays over frosty margaritas from the swim-up Sun Bar, and the in-water loungers are a great way to stay cool while sunbathing. It won't be long before you're called by the delicious smells from the five dining options. For inventive Italian tastes, choose the romantic Rimini. Or, if fresh and exciting fusion cuisine sounds more appealing, head to Krystal for outstanding international fare. When night falls and steel drums fill the air, hang out at one of the resort's four bars for top-shelf cosmos and lively conversation.

Rest assured that a peaceful vacation doesn't mean you won't have fun. Riu Palace Tropical Bay makes Negril, Jamaica your personal playground with all-inclusive perks like windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking and body boarding. New to scuba? Take the plunge and take an introductory scuba lesson. With two lighted tennis courts and a fitness center, you won't have to give up your exercise routine, though you might well be tempted. Whether you've worked out or chilled out, the hotel's Renova Spa is a great way to cap the day. You'll feel the stress of everyday life melt away during a relaxing Swedish massage.
