We've just got back from our third visit to Riu Montego Bay. Had a slight delay at Manchester, but it wasn't a problem. As usual the flight and meals were great. Check in at the hotel was smooth, got to our rooms straight away. As our daughter was with us we had 3 large double beds. On the ground floor....

What seemed like 10 minutes from the airport, upon arrival at the resort those at front desk worked quickly to get us checked –in with courtesy. For 3 women with an abundance of clothes, our room with 3 beds, was spacious enough to accommodate us without bumping into each other, enough storage to house all the contents of our luggage...

This resort disappointed me in many ways. I’m easy going and not hard to please but the resort lacked much of the things I expected when researching it. Overall, I was disappointed in the quality of the food, the lack of information on making a reservation for the specialty restaurants, the small rooms and the double beds being pushed together...

Cost approx. $280 I believe but we were able to get a rate of $180. From Airport: if you come on a package deal, your drive there is included. If not you...

Our family just got back from beautiful Jamaica and what an experience we had! The Riu was amazing! It was clean, picturesque, the staff were so friendly and accommodating! The food was phenomenal as well as the wait staff. Our wedding was coordinated by Riu wedding planner Nekeisha White. I will admit, at first, her laid back attitude was a...

I was a solo female on my first trip to Jamaica, staying seven nights over Thanksgiving week. I was in building six, farthest away to the lobby. The room was clean. Some may have found the beds too hard but they were just right for me. All of the pillows were too soft for me but I travel with my...

This resort was all anyone could ask for and more. The food was delicious with something for every taste. The are lots of bars open at various times and service was great. The room was nice except that the bed was rather hard. Good size room and patio. The only drawback was the seaweed in the water but that is...

Four of us went for a milestone birthday celebration in November and had a wonderful time. The staff were kind, funny and offered great customer service.
