14 Years Late Honeymoon

My husband and I never had a honeymoon, so this trip was our honeymoon 14 years late. It was everything we had dreamed of! From the moment we arrived, every staff member was welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. We were upgraded to an ocean front room which was amazing! The food was so good, evey bit of it, and the drinks delicious! Our favorite place was the pool with the swim up bar. It was hot and humid, so we would get in the pool, get a drink, and stand at one of the in-pool tables. It was cool and comfortable. The beach bar was our second favorite place. We would grab drinks and sit in lounge chairs and soak up the sun, and when it got too hot, just run into the 82 degree ocean. It was heaven! All in all we had a fabulous time. The only thing I wished for was an elevator as climbing the stairs to our third floor room was exhausting, but also contributed to me only gaining 2 pounds despite all the food I ate, so it was worth it.

Riu

We definitely enjoyed our stay here. Staff was welcoming & accommodating! Environment was fabulous, beach is great. Entertainment did a great job at rounding people up to participate. We stayed for 12 days & were impressed with the fact they did not repeat themselves second week around! Food was good, it did get a little repetitive after a while though, but the choices were plenty. Yes, we would recommend to others.

Horrible resort

I did not have a pleasant time at this resort. First issue when we get to the room my bed was moist and my pillows smelled like mildew for the entire stay. I tossed the pillows on the floor so maid service will no to discard them or change them atleast and every day they constantly placed them back on my bed, also the mattresses are not comfortable and the room stays damp and moist, not sure why. Second me and my friends where celebrating a birthday and we were refused at the specialty restaurant by Samantha. The next day we complained to the front desk and still no resolution. We had to go off the resort and buy food. The buffet food was not really good and it was not what I expected. We wanted island good mote flavorful. The staff on the resort showed favoritism to other guest. This was not the best experience at all. The drinks were good at all the bars and the water activities were fun.

Fair trip for fair price

It took about an hour and a half - 2 hours by shuttle to get to the resort from Montego Bay airport. We were the first ones dropped off and the last ones picked up. My first impression was it looks okay, but not as nice as I thought it would look. At check in everything went pretty smoothly, other than having 2 double beds for my husband and myself. After requesting and hearing that a king bed was only given on availability, we finally did get a king bed. (i did request a king bed in the initial reservation) The food was fair, nothing great. I think the best food was the buffet and the jerk chicken on the beach. There is no staff available to bring you drinks at the pool or the beach, you have to go get them yourself - but we didn't mind that. I heard that's to keep cost down. Most of the staff was great, except the lady at the beach bar she always had an attitude. You can not drink the water from the faucet in the hotel room. You have bottled water, beer and soda and tonic in the mini bar, along with rum, gin, vodka and brandy in the wall dispensers. But three of the days they did not bring any bottled water to the room, I had to call the front desk and they said they only refill the frig every other day. Entertainment was fair, nothing outstanding. The beach was small, but it had pretty good snorkeling. The beach by Riu Palace was much nicer. We saw a lot of Sting Rays, conch shells and colorful fish when we were snorkeling. Some people said they saw star fish also, but I didn't see any. If you have room to pack a small raft its great to lay in the bays calm water and float around.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

The singing bartender. See if you can find him. He'll mix you up a high-octane cocktail.

Great bang for your buck for all the activities, entertainment and food and drink you'll get.

The service at Riu is the best. They keep everything clean and orderly. You will be spoiled.

Nightly entertainment keeps the party going at night. And into the wee hours, if you must.

The sunsets off the shores of Negril are some of the best. Get your cameras charged and ready for snaps.

The infamous Rick's Cafe is not too far - the cliff divers are awe-mazing.

 

What We'd Change

The omelet bar is favorite in the morning. Get in line early to avoid a long wait.
 

Why You Should Go

Getting to Negril will take you about an hour & a half, but it's so worth it. Beachy drinks are waiting.

Grab some locally made souvenirs in town. Your friends/fam will kiss your ring upon receipt.

The restaurants at night will fill up, so make sure to make your reservations a couple of days in advance.

Beach shoes are always a good idea, especially when you want to beachcomb your way up the shores.

Pay a little extra to get upgraded Wi-Fi - it will work even on the beach. You'll def want it there.

The One Love Bus Tour will pick you up at the resort and show off all the local night spots in Negril.
