Not the worst purchase ever

I will say the resort is clean. The staff, except for 1 manager who thought it was a good idea to call me at 6:50am were great. They were friendly and wanted to make sure you were having a fun time. The restaurant options were buffet style. There was an Asian restaurant, the Mahoe, the Mahoe steak, the Rose Hall, and an Italian restaurant, we decided not to try the Italian restaurant. The food was either very spicy or bland in 3 of the restaurants. For lunch we found the beach bbq was delicious. The line there was always long, probably bc everyone else there felt the same way. For dinner the best tasting was at the Mahoe Steak Restaurant. The food there was the best out of all the dining options. The wait list was long but totally worth it. The rooms could use some updating. The beds and pillows weren't very comfortable, but they served their purpose. The drinks were tasty but I never got a buzz, even though I tried. It was a mediocre resort, we had a nice time but will never stay there again.

Not worth what they charge.

They are very rude at times. The food isn’t really good, same menu over and over. Music is very not friendly to those visiting play very old tunes. Alcohol isn’t that good either THEY SERVE WITH FLIES BEES ALL AROUND the swim pool area. Hotel management is a mess threatened to kick us out in the middle of the night due to misunderstanding about hair dye on a pillow and wanting to charge us $150 damaging fees. Overall looking for a good time Riu isn’t the place for what they want to charge!! Stay else where.

Amazing experience

Stayed at this resort with a group of friends it was an amazing experience! We had a blast every night they had different activities which were all fun... bartenders are amazing they give you whatever you want as soon as you ask. The food was ehh ok some days I expected more of a Caribbean taste. Also the room keys in my opinion were easy lose because they were actual keys most resorts have a band that you can just enter your room with or a card not a small key but other than that the resort was amazing and I’ll definitely be back again soon

Girls Trip

The overall resort was good as long as you want to stay at the resort and not explore the neighborhood. It is VERY close to the airport so the neighborhood is sketchy and there are many planes coming and going, some much closer than others! The pool and staff are amazing! There was daily entertainment at the pool and the swim bar staff was always happy to see us. The buffet is good with lots of selection. The Italian restaurant was very good. The Asian and Steakhouse were AWFUL. The steak tasted like it was marinated in salt over night. The Asian food all tasted the same, luke warm and mushy. The room was clean but had an odd somewhat musty smell.

What's to Love

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. It's why people continue to flock here. Fill your day with fun, fruity cocktails, locally made jerk chicken (find it at the hut on the beach), and activities galore like kayaking, a little beach volleyball or some re-laxation at the spa. You in? Thought so.

It's time to get your Riu on.



DINING
