Big thank you to Winston and his magical "French Kiss" The entire staff at Riu Montego Bay went above and beyond. Love the buffet and the pool but was a little disappointed with the beach. I prefer long walks on sandy beaches but the beach here is a 3 minute walk tops when you run into fences on either side...

We were at the RIU January 2014. Overall our experience was positive. I will break down review in sections. Room: Building 5 was excellent location close to everything and quiet. We had a Gardenview Room. The liquor dispenser was handy to have in our room. Room was clean and maintained daily by housekeeping and always cleaned by 1 pm. No...

Having the air conditioning on helped some.My only...

Ten of my closest co-workers and I spent 5 days and 4 nights at the Hotel Riu Mobay last month just before Christmas for our holiday party. Of course we were all very excited, and it isn't easy to have a bad time on a beautiful island at an all inclusive resort when the weather is gorgeous and the free...

My husband and I spent six nights at this resort in January 2014. I’ll preface my review of RIU Montego Bay by saying I’ve recently stayed at the Sandals Royal Caribbean, which is right next door to RIU Montego Bay. This was my husband’s first visit to Jamaica and first stay at an all-inclusive resort. Overall, we had a great...

So... please take this review with a grain of salt. I'm not trying to be negative, as I think this resort could be fine for your needs... depending what your needs are. As context for our vacation.. We're kind of "resort" people 1/2 the time... We have 2 kids, 5 year old, and 2 year old. We do like the...
