This hands down was the best place and resort we have been too. At the time we were newly weds on our honeymoon, this resort is great for singles, couples, and families. The hotel was beautiful and had friendly staff. The food was fantastic, if your able to make friends with the head chef, he might make you a lobster...

I attended this rewort with my wife for a friends wedding. The resort is not exclusively adults, but the majority of visitors are indeed adults. There is the standard game of inability to book the restuarants, however once in the restuarant they are emply and the food is the same as the buffet 90% of the time. The pool scene...

Overall, this is a very nice place to stay. The hotel staff was very helpful and took our bags to our rooms for us right away. We had booked some excursions through JTL online prior to our arrival and were introduced to a lady who would assist us with these and any other excursions throughout our stay, which made everything...

Pros: - Great staff, and nightly entertainment. Yes tip the workers, they don't make huge amount of money and depend on tips to make extra cash. And you will get treated well. - Jerk chicken hut on the beach - Nice pool bar - Go see "Big Bird" private taxi just outside the main gates, you will get to see...

Our experience at the RIU was fantastic! The drive from the airport was very short. I was welcomed by a friendly bellhop who took my bags and directed me to an easy check-in process. My room was nice and clean. I read that the beds were hard so I did bring my own bed cushioning and slept like a baby!...

We just came back for our 7 day vacation at Riu Hotel. Well Riu service can't ruin God Given benefits of Jamaica - beautiful weather, beautiful blue ocean and island music but they made sure everything else is uncomfortable and complicated.
