    My husband and i have just come back from 2 weeks at the Riu Negril .When we got to the room it was lovely and clean but that was the only time apart from 1 day when we were on the balcony when the cleaner came and did a good job ,but that was the only time our room got cleaned and towels got changed in 2 weeks .She came in every day and made the bed took the tip and left.Most of the staff were very unhappy and just ignored us.The tui rep was only interested in selling trips that where very expensive if you wanted to know about anything else she was not helpful .I would stay away from this hotel.

    Horrible Entertainment

    The entertainment at this resort is HORRIBLE. They had a packed house. They showed a video of some Reggae Band and pathetic Karaoke. They could not get enough volunteers from audience and had staff doing Karaoke. Room and staff were exceptional. Food was mediocre. I would recommend this resort to individuals planning on leaving hotel for nightly entertainment. Room was immaculate.

    Family Vacation in Jamaica

    The resort grounds are well-maintained, and the rooms are clean. Room cabinet was stocked with liquor and frig stocked with assorted soft drinks, water and mixers. Restocked every 2 days. Only complaint here it that the ice machine, 2 located in our #3 block, never had ice. Although I ran into a nice employee who took my bucket and got me some ice. Block #3 is a long way from the front desk, restaurants and most activities and there are no elevators. Unless you like walking, book Block #1/#2. We also had a problem with our key losing the charge so that meant another long walk to the front desk to get it recharged. Don't take a lot of clothes or towels, it's just not needed. You are provided a towel card, take it to the pool area, obtain your towel, when finished return the towel and retain your card to get a clean towel for next time. Bring insect repellent and sunscreen and use it!! Also, make sure to bring your supply of toiletries or necessities as the on-resort stores are expensive. There is no ATM, the on- resort stores accept Cards, but if you want to buy gifts, ciggies, activities or anything else from the locals, you need cash. Cash is needed to pay for activities like the glass bottom book, couch, and kayak. We booked the glass bottom boat, we got off the boat and played in the sea (life jackets are provided), and then navigated to an island were we freshly prepared lobster and shrimp. The trip was about 2 hours $40 per person and the lobster of choice and shrimp was $40/$35 respectively. You can take a taxi off resort to an ATM, the taxi ran us $20 for 2 people round trip. Talk to your driver though, the person who obtained the taxi for us quoted $20 per person; you can pay driver directly or the person who obtained the taxi. Cocktails and drinks are free and served at the pool and on the beach as well as bars around the main pavilion. The employees are friendly. The food choices are extensive, with a variety of everything, meats, salads, breads, and desserts!! And the entertainment crew was awesome, kudos to them for putting on great nightly shows. They mingle through the resort goers on a daily basis, encouraging attendance and just having good conversations. Overall, the trip was lovely, and I highly recommend this resort especially for families.

    Amazing place

    Just returned after a fab holiday, staff are so happy and friendly bar staff amazing at the pool especially Tyrese & Nicoy led by the fab Gareth. Entertainment team are fabulous and had us in stitches most days and work so hard. Rooms clean and very spacious and the bed omg amazing so much space. Food was plentiful and always a variety along with the option of the al a carte restaurants. Honestly don't understand some of the reviews I've read about the distance from reception to rooms it's not far at all and we was in block 3 but u can't please everyone
