From the moment you get out of the airport, our experience was great. Attitude is important. Relax, smile and the world will smile back at you. In Jamaica this is more true than ever. We arrive in the hotel and were efficiently given our room (1k block), but after reading the reviews here, we moved to the 5k block. This...

We enjoyed staying 8 nights here. There with 2 other couples with us and we all had a wonderful time. However, there were some issues during our stay. There was maintenance work outside our 1st room. Painting, etc. which began at 6:30 AM!! We awoke to very noisy workers in our hall. So disappointing...could not sleep because of this noise....

It started at the airport with an hour wait for the shuttle to the hotel which is only a ten dollar cab ride. When this was mentioned to sunwing rep they dismissed it and said we were lying. Check in was good but we ended up in a room with two single beds. If you like buffets that is what...

We stayed here for a week and had a blast. Pros: - Huge pool with swim up bar - Plenty of seating around the pool (get there early because they do run out eventually) - Lots of entertainment daily. Water polo, pool yoga, pool volleyball, beach volleyball, etc etc. - Food was good but since they try to cater to...

My husband and I chose this as our first all inclusive and we weren't sorry! The food and drinks were really good. But the staff was so friendly and helpful which made it very enjoyable! Always extremely clean. We would definitely go back. My only constructive criticism was the beds were too firm for me but it wasn't terrible. Overall...

You traveled with a 9 month old? Yes in fact did! My husband couldn't get time off from work and I really needed to get away. So why not? My...

Having stayed at other Riu hotels we were expecting much more than this. After a 17 hour journey, we checked in and was given our room. Wanting to rest after, we were disappointed to find no pillow cases, it was a good few hours before they were brought. Went to the buffet for our evening meal, very disappointed, a lot...
