This was an average AI, decent everything, but didn't feel safe there for me and my friends (mid-twenties, asian). Being in a group of three young asian girls made us stand out and really brought on unwarranted attention from the staff. Over time, we got used to it but still. I don't want to feel like I'm on display in...

I was just married at the Riu Montego Bay 25/1/2014. I was actually engaged at the same hotel one year previous. It is a beautiful place with a great staff. Two reasons I write a review, first is the salon. We bought the best wedding package which included a bridal hair style, mani/pedi and a couples massage. Additionally, for my...

Arrived and was served a welcome drink right away! Jerk chicken on the beach was great, had it for lunch every day. Lots of selection at the buffet, the people in our group always found something to eat that they enjoyed. The shows were the best I've seen at a resort. The pool was great and had a nice swim...

I am writing to warn all considering this hotel as we found out by our own experience and that of others that theft by staff is coining place here. We had 500 US dollars stolen from our safe, lots of others things and cash was left in the safe, just the dollars taken. Reported to the police and was really...

We just got home from Riu, Mo Bay, and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly! First, the hotel is only 15 minutes or so from the airport, so no long bus rides. The hotel is an all inclusive, family friendly resort with six separate buildings of rooms. Rooms beginning with "0" are closest to the lobby and are considered "ocean view". They...

Look I understand the attraction of all inclusives - the money is paid up before you arrive. But if you are coming to a country - please explore and also experiment wth food. I stayed one night courtesy of a delayed Delta flight. The setting is nice. Selection of booze in room - great...but the food was awful...sorry but may...

This hotel had a beautiful location for our friend's wedding. There were a couple interruptions due to planes taking off but it didn't wreck the mood. The food was good with a lot of variety at the buffet and restaurants. Try the pizza! Very clean rooms and grounds. The only negative thought we had was about slow service at the...

My boyfriend and stayed at the Riu Mo-Bay from Jan 22-29 2014. Overall we had a great time. The staff, food and service was excellent. The only reason we may not go back it the beach. If you're beach people you will not enjoy your time on the beach. It's very small and murky and muddy. But I must say...

We really enjoyed our vacation at this hotel last week. The entertainment was great, the food was great, and the staff was very accommodating. We stayed in building 2 and the walk to everything was just fine! My only complaint is the hardness of the beds. They were not the most comfortable. I felt like we were sleeping on the...
