    Smoking..designated smoking areas....fine. Cannot even vape on the beach, yes smoking weed everywhere is accepted....

    Hypocritical smoking rules. Being watched constantly on the beach in case I am vapeing. Uncomfortable experience....must try smoking weed, then things will be fine. Hotel amazing, food brilliant, with plenty of choice. Not overly busy, but service at pools and bar very hit and miss

    Nice Hotel for couples or grown adults

    Check in seemed a little disorganized as many rooms were not ready at check in time. The beach area like most of the Caribbean is disappearing and weedy. The buffet is excellent. The restaurants need to up their food choices. The entertainment is very good. The premium beverage choices were excellent as were the bar staff. The pools are super warm almost hot or unbearable, the beach is a better choice for warm but not hot water.

    Very beautiful resort with dirty mattresses

    This is an honest review. For the price you pay you would think that the rooms would be clean but they are not. If you pull the sheets back, you will see that the mattresses are filthy and have nasty stains all over them. It looks like they got them out of someone's dumpster. This hotel is too expensive and for the money that you spend this is unacceptable. The mattresses need to be replaced immediately. My son said that his bathroom had cracked glass. Other then the subpar rooms, the staff keep the resort grounds pretty clean. We loved the fact that we had access to the other two resorts. The white party was really fun at RIU Montego Bay but the food at the buffet was not good. The food at the RIU Palace Buffet was good but very repetitive. Most servers were very nice and attentive, others ignored you or barely spoke to you even when you gave them a tip. I heard they don't really like to be tipped. The woman bartender at the Aqua bar that worked the night shift had a very nasty attitude. She was not nice at all. Tried not to spend much time at the resort or in that dirty room.
