Don't believe all the negative comments! I have recently just returned from this hotel! I loved it! Part from a few little glitches which could be resolved! Like for instances this hotel is an all inclusive one so I don't understand why you have to tip! Most bar staff EXPECT it! Asian restaurant was by far the best food all...

I just returned from a week in this resort with my daughter, Check In was fine went smooth and got to our rooms. Rooms were OK but the bedspreads were filthy and stained. Pillows were not even considered pillows. The beach is so small and after you walk in about 3 feet you hit seaweed and it is nasty. I...

We stayed here on our honeymoon. The resort is located minutes from the Montego Bay airport, and you are able to hear the planes overhead at regular intervals throughout the day. (Which isn't that big of a deal for the convenience factor) The staff here was extremely friendly and helpful. There were a few exceptions to that, but you will...

Jamaica-montego bay Dunns river falls-great experience and great opportunity for creative photography. You can climb up and down the path if you don't want to do the rocks/hike. Make sure you take your waterproof camera if you opt to go in....take the full day trip for 65.00 vs the 1/2 day 55.00 trip. You get to see Ocho Rios and...

Do NOT consider believing any of the negative reviews. 6 of us just returned from a weeks stay at RIU. There are no words to explain what a wonderful experience was had by all 6 of us.

The only real complaint i have about Riu Montego Bay is that the rooms were musty and smelled. I knew this going in because after all it is the carribean so please please please bring Febreeze or Candles to help with the smell. It still wont help since we have to wash every piece of clothing.
