Beware of flights back home

Riu Montego Bay was wonderful! The property is not new, so do not expect spectacular rooms, but they are nice enough. They also do not have elevators, so if you are on the third floor you'll be marching up and down the stairs. The food was good, I found the dinner buffet to be the best. The people are incredibly friendly!!! The pool and beach were very nice and there are plenty of chairs in the shade if you don't want direct sun. Everything was great until we were on our way home. We had a layover in Atlanta, GA and missed our connecting flight because customs took way too long. We had 2.5 hours to get through customs, but it just wasn't enough. If you book through Cheap Caribbean, be sure they give at least 3 hours to get through customs before you have to make your connecting flight. I am very disappointed I had to spend an extra $100 for a hotel and missed work the next day.

Best Vacation Ever!!!

Riu Montego Bay was by far the best affordable resort in Montego Bay. Beautiful, huge pool area. Amazing swim up bar. The staff was always friendly and accommodating. The resort itself was gorgeous. The food options were wonderful. You can eat from 7am to 10pm all day if you wanted to.Almost every night there was show in the the theater area The whole resort was clean including the beach. They rake the entire beach every morning. I can't say enough good things about this resort. I can't wait to go back.

Had a wonderful time

Riu Montego Bay is an enjoyable all inclusive resort. The staff is very nice and always willing to help in any way. The grounds and pool are immaculate. The beach was awesome located in a protected bay with plenty of loungers.we especially enjoyed the nice trees that were intermittently placed, allowing those of us that love the beach but are not sun worshipers a place in the shade. Although the bed in our room was not comfortable and was quite old the room itself was very clean and nice. I would like to suggest some comfortable sitting chairs or recliners in the rooms for times when you just want to relax and read. They have a nice assortment of onsite restaurants although I would rate the food only as average. As far as nightly entertainment we really enjoyed the shows. the dancers were a joy to watch perform.

Fantastic

Went for a divorce trip with 3 other gf. The place was very clean, food is available 24 hrs and the room bar is included and refilled with alcohol and non alcohol beverages. This is my 4 riu and I’ve loved them all. Booked this trip for the riu. Massage on the beach was great. Jerk chicken hut from 12-3 daily on the beach. Paddle boarding and other non motorized sports available. The nightclub was a great time and was crowded. It’s a late 20s do early 50s crowd. And the sports bar upstairs is open after for snacks and sandwiches. The staff were all extremely pleasant, friendly and accommodating. The pool was clean with lots of space and chairs. My only complaint is that my room was a little damp and musty. And there’s no elevators to get up to your room. Overall, great experience!

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

You in? Thought so.
