We held our wedding at the Montego Bay Resort. All in all we were highly disappointed with our experience at this resort in regards to our wedding. We chose our wedding package which was not cheap, and were not at all impressed with the service we were provided with. At first email communication, our wedding planner was not going to...

My stay at the RIU was great! The food was good, the drinks were flowing and the staff was very friendly! There was a good selection of restaurants that were all equally good. The pools were amazing and the bartenders were so willing to go out of their way to make you happy. I would definitely

We went with a group of 20 various ages for my sisters wedding. We had read some negative reviews about this hotel and I wasn't expecting much, this was our first time in Jamaica and we all LOVED it.... Yes the rooms are outdated but you don't go on holiday to sit your room and they were cleaned everyday and...

Our Booking with trip Central agent Jack Gentile was spot on, he delivered every thing as promised. Sunwing check in was swift and uncomplicated. We did have one issue however, with the ability to book excursions onboard flight. I would not recommend it if attending this destination Riu Montego Bay. Although it was designed to save us money from $122....

I will start off this review by saying that I was very skeptical to come here from reading negative reviews but after visiting, I can't seem to understand how people had such a horrible time here. I will also mention that I come from a hospitality background, so I understand what it means to be on each side of the...

I have been to several resorts in Jamaica and this was probably my least fav. The beds were all hard as bricks. All food shuts down at 10pm unless you want old ,cold hotdogs and nachos without cheese. The breakfast buffet is limited if you don't eat pork or beef. There should be more kids activities around the resort. The...

My husband and I decided to go back to Jamaica for a long weekend after many years. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by the bell hop and an associate with welcoming champagne. We stayed 3 nights and 4 days just relaxing at the resort. Very clean and comfortable. Restaurants were some of the better we have had...

This was a quick 4 nights/5 days couple getaway. Efficient and friendly check in, nice room overlooking courtyard in building 1, which is closest to pool and breakfast buffet. Beach is nice, and when lounging there, you can actually see over the water bungalows of couples only property next door- Sandals, which gives it a little exotic feel. There is...

Overall the hotel services were very good. Our room had no water pressure in the bathroom and one sink was clogged. Kids room was ok. Towels are worn out. Best part of this hotel is the service. Very friendly and accomodating. The pool is very nice and clean. Exercise activities for kids and adults throughout the day and entertainment at...
