Adults Only Resorts

The Property Let's get right to it. Should you stay at the Riu Palace Jamaica (Adults Only)? Well that depends. We stayed at the adults only version of Riu because we didn't want to be bothered by a bunch of pre-teen kids flooding the pools and the eating areas. We also wanted entertainment more geared towards adults. If this is your reason for staying here, then DON'T. The resort is very quiet. Not a lot of entertainment and not very many people. Instead of adults only it should say (Senior Citizens Only) because the resort seems to be geared towards a much older crowd. That's not to say there wasn't ANY entertainment but compared to it's sister property the Riu Montego Bay (which you also have access to) you are better off staying there BY FAR! Like Casinos? It's at the Riu Montego. Like pools? Riu Montego has a much bigger pool (with hotter chicks, ALL the young chicks are at the Riu Montego). Like food? The Riu Montego has more food options. Like clubs? The Riu Montego has a indoor dance club. The Riu Montego is just a better resort ALL around. I thought staying at the Riu Palace I would have all the amenities minus the children. This was not the case. The Riu Palace is just a much smaller, much quieter version of the Riu Montego with less stuff and less people. Now if that's your thing then this is the perfect place for you. It actually is a very nice resort. But I wouldn't stay here or ANY adults only resort unless I was 60 and older. The Drinks As far as the drinks are concerned let me say this....WATERED DOWN. We were there for 5 days drinking cocktails and beer like water and did NOT get a single buzz. They even have bottles of liquor on tap in your room but SOMEHOW they have managed to water those down too. This is the same for BOTH properties. You could give a shot of rum to a 5 year old and I guarantee you they would not even get a buzz. The Food While they do have specialty restaurants on site most of the time you will be dining at the buffet. The food at the buffet is average at best. Same for both properties. At breakfast the scrambled eggs are watery, the syrup literally has no sugar in it and the bacon and sausage left much to be desired. I could go on and on about the food. There are some hits and misses. They do have themed nights for the buffet but I found the food to be average at the very best. We were very happy when we went offsite to a Margaritaville for some REAL food. I've been to much better buffets. Room service is 24/7 but has a very limited menu and I mean LIMITED! Overall This is a very nice resort if you just plan on relaxing and just having a very quite time. However, I would highly recommend staying at the Riu Montego Bay instead so you don't have to walk next door just to enjoy all the great stuff.

Best Vacation Ever

Wow! This vacation set a new standard for us that will be hard to top. This was our first all-inclusive experience and boy was it worth every penny. The resort was absolutely beautiful! Every single staff member went above and beyond to make us as comfortable as possible. I'd go back there in a heartbeat!

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

It's surrounded by fringy palms and overlooks the luscious, soul-stirring aquamarine Mahoe Bay.

The Renova spa next door (@Riu Montego Bay) where you can kick your stress to the sandy curb.

The beach is protected by a reef so the water is calm & delicious for snorkeling and swimming.

The ocean breezes and crazy beautiful sunsets - it's more than Bucket List worthy.

World-class golf is near - soaking in the sun while you play a round is the best. Ever.

 

What We'd Change

For lunch, you can dine at either Montego Bay or Seaside, but if you're wanting more choices, you'll get to enjoy the restaurants and activities at the sister resort, Riu Montego Bay, which is next door.
 

Why You Should Go

The airport is just 1.7 miles away. Your rockin', adults-only vacay will begin lickety-split.

You can head over to the sister resort, Riu Montego Bay, for more places to get your grub on.

Saddle up and get ready - horseback riding is near. You have to do this.

Attention water babies: check out the catamarans, kayaking & windsurfing.

You can play a set (or two) of tennis or get in some beach volleyball. Game on.
