We actually went to this resort in March of 2013 and I realized I had never written a review. This was our first riu vacation ( we have chosen riu again based on this vacation)

We stayed 5 nights and loved every single minute. We brought our teenage daughter and all three of us couldn't be happier with our first trip to Jamaica. The beach is gorgeous. Beautiful palm trees provide lots of shade, and long enough for our walks....More

I wish I remembered the room numbers. Have been there 5 times and we are going again in August. The 1st trip, I requested 2 ocean front jr.suites on the deluxe side. Both were nice, we were located in the center of the "U" shaped building, I think on the 4th floor but not positive. The view from the rooms are great, sorta. One room had the metal railing on the terrace, but mine had the cement wall so if sitting in the chair, you could not see over the wall. That's the way the building is designed. From then on, I just get the garden view and as long as your not directly in front of trees, you have a great view of the gardens, pool and ocean. My preference is not to be on the 1st floor, although you are right there by the gardens, I just feel safer off of the ground floor (personal preference) In any case, if the resort is not at capacity and you don't mind waiting, you can always try to change rooms if you can. So when you check in, state you want the ocean front room that does not have the cement wall balcony. Hope that helps and have a great trip!
