I went to Riu Montego Bay last Summer with my girlfriend. We really enjoyed it until we were robbed. Our things were taken from the locked safe! When we returned to the room, I saw the door had been pried open. I went to check the safe, but my code did not work. I called the manger to see if...

Left for Montego Bay June 28th for a one week all inclusive at the Riu. Was excited to be spending a week in a 5 star hotel. Jamaica was not one of my first choices, spent a day in Ocho Rios years ago and really found the natives extremely agressive. Glad I gave it another chance. The Riu is the...

Unfortunately this hotel has missed the mark on providing the essence of Jamaica. They have too many rules and not enough accommodating. The resort is beautiful on the inside, the rooms are very nice and spacious, but the owners are not investing in keeping it up-to-date. Some rooms had small flat screen TVs, some had the old bulky TVs, the...

I was at the RIU Resort from 6/27/2013 to 7/3/2013. From the minute we arrived, we were treated very friendly and respectfully. The resort itself is very spacious, and accomodating. Visually, it's wonderful, the staff keep the resort very clean, the bartenders are very friendly, and the dining staff are wonderful. The food is awesome, trust me, you won't go...

This hotel is fab! When we arrived we were greeted with a cocktail and given a room straight away. We didn't like our first room because of the view from our balcony (block 5) and asked to be changed. They agreed to move us the following day which was fine with us and we were much happier in block 3....

In the many years of travelling, this has been my worst experience ever. To say that the staff were nasty is to put it nicely. I was there for a family wedding and even the wedding planner was not nice. It took two days for me to get soap, my dietrary needs were not met and they didn't do anything...

I've come to realize many of your vacations are what you make of them. My husband and I stayed here for 7 days with family, and we had a great time. The rooms are clean, but we only slept and got ready for the day (served its purpose). We drank...a lot. Loved the swim up pool bar (spent a great...
