Just returned from a 1 week stay. We are used to staying at 5 stars, so we really should have listened to previous ratings. This really is a 3.5 Star and nothing more. Pro: The entertainment and pool bar staff were very friendly. The pool was nice. Con: The service staff was incredibly slow and we ended up getting up...

Just got back from a 14 night break, this hotel and staff exceeded my expectations. Good food, great staff, great service, good gym only no hand weights, truly all inclusive package which included mini bar and water sports too. Nice and clean staff were always busy cleaning and the work was being checked too no complaints what so ever.

Who complains about this resort must be insane. I will give you a good run down from 3 different prospectives. I went there with my wife, sister, her husband and child, my 70 yr old mother and her husband. We where greeted at the entrance with a nice welcoming drink. Told check in would be a couple of hours. It...

Home last week after two great weeks at this hotel. The only downside was the weather - it rained for most of the first week. Food is fab, entertainment really well organised and presented but what really made it for us was the wonderful staff. Whatever their role they were helpful, friendly and efficient. Will definitely go back.

Best trip ever awesome all around if you go there ask for cab driver Shane Wheatle. The best ever. Can't complained about anything. Took a bit to get use to planes flying over pool but soon did not even notice.

Just arrived home from riu Montego Bay to Nova Scotia, Canada. There is not one negative thing I can say about our experience. I'm 30 and went with my 54 year old mother and 52 year old aunt and we all had the most fabulous time! The grounds are immaculate, the food is amazing, beach and pool proximity is within...

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...
