This was our 5th trip to Riu Montego Bay, and as I've reviewed before, what a fantastic place this is. We got through passport control and collected our cases really quickly. With no problems. The hotel is only 10 mins away from the airport, which is brilliant after a 9 hour flight. Check in at the hotel was really fast....

booked this hotel somewhat last minute, for a low price. The hotel is very conveniently located to the airport - take a taxi there for ~$20 rather than the transfer buses that stop at multiple hotels and wait to leave the airport once they are full. Taxi cab will get you there faster and cheaper. Check-in was fast and easy....

Great staff, great food, great drinks, amazing beach! Loved my whole trip! Rooms were typical Riu rooms, no complaints I didn't spend much time in my room anyways, but they need to refill the liquor dispensar more often we were out of vodka after 4 days and didn't get refilled.

Our flight out of Montego Bay was cancelled on 11/29/16. As a result of the cancellation, our airline put us in the Riu for the night. Upon arrival at the Riu, we were impressed at how organized and prepared they were for a plane full of people coming. They had tables set up and a system in place that was...

They don't have any respect for us locals, u can feel the difference!The rooms don't have much electric outlets, cobwebs to kill in the room! The beds are very...

We visited this hotel from the 12th to the 26th November, and from the off, I can say this hotel/resort is good but really does need a little TLC to get anywhere near the 5 star it is advertised at. Good Points - Check in was quick and efficient, we were directed to our room and a gentleman brought our...

We travelled to Montego Bay for the first time in Nov/16. This was a nice escape for my husband and I and we are quite happy to relax on the beach. Our first overall impression was that the Riu Montego Bay is a very well kept resort. The grounds are beautifully groomed and they were updating the buildings when we...

This was our first time to Jamaica. We were looking for something decently priced with equally as decent a resort. We got what we were looking for. The resort was constantly in service and clean, the people were always friendly and happy to provide service. The entertainment staff were extra fun and friendly. Food was approachable yet had that essence...
