Riu Montego Bay - we went in June 2013. I travel 4 times a year so I travel experience. I'm not here to whine but to give you my opinion about this hotel and the location. What was written in the description of the hotel before leaving was not the reality on the ground. It is really dangerous to Montego Bay, several small incidents we arrived and we decided not to come out of the hotel until the end of the trip. It is continually harassing or by vendors or by taxi drivers and the homeless. We will not return to Jamaica, it's over.

Positive :

Nice hotel with great potential. The site is very clean, well trimmed trees, the pool is clean and the site is well lit at night. Small but beautiful beach, the water is shaded and lots of shells in the bottom of the water.

Negative :

Many bat at night in the Steakhouse and the place shows that are both open to the outside. The a la carte restaurants was indicated unlimited unrestricted, but it was impossible to get a reservation, we are makes us say that the restaurants were fully booked for the week, we had reservations. After you talk to the manager of the buffet, it got us two reservations. The a la carte restaurants are not pleased by the steakhouse is the worst of all. There was a battle between four people at the pool and no security has occurred, ca door believe that there is no security on the site. The internet is far from unlimited and only 90 minutes after completion. Calling cards are $ 20.00 and costs us $ 2.00 is charged to the room for each call made. The rooms feel much moisture and bibites we had in the room. No alarm clock in the room, though it was stated in the description of the hotel. We asked for a wake-up call for the day of departure and no one has called to wake us up. The beds are really hard, it was like sleeping on wooden boards. Activities, memories are very expensive. No catamaran to go to Negril or Ocho Rios. Buses that make the trip to Dunns River stop at several hotels before arriving to pick up other passengers, so it must be a way around 1:30 becomes 3:30. Many people who went to Dunns River Falls, returned to Canada on crutches or sprains. The place is dangerous because of the mud settles on the rocks.

Positive :

Beautiful complex, large pool, a pool activities are well. I like the Riu, but this time the return was painful.

Negative :

Difficulties of having someone who speaks French. Sidewalks leading to the rooms and the pool is not clean. Ill are many small white worms everywhere, even in the rooms. On my return trip, I was forced to throw my bags and lots of clothes because lice sand, not to mention visits to the doctor for worms in the intestines. I do definitely not!

Positive :

It's always a pleasure to go to a hotel owned by the hotel chain RIU (we also went to the RIU Tequila in Riviera Maya). The staff is friendly and courtoie. The rooms and hotel are very clean. The food is excellent. The overall service is impeccable. The animation team made sure to entertain clients. In short, we had a very nice stay in this hotel and would recommend it. The price for staying at a hotel RIU is a bit higher than other places but well worth the effort if you want to eat well and have good service.

Negative :

There are a lot of algae in the sea which is a little uncomfortable when we like to go swimming there. The a la carte restaurants are not really in the map. We need to book to go there (as in all restaurants map) and we must help ourselves. The hotel is located about 3 km from the airport so this may be an advantage if do not like the road but may also be a disadvantage if you do not hear the noise of planes taking off.

Positive :

Superb hotel, for travelers who love the All Inclusive package''''. The small bar in the rooms are well filled and every 2 days.

Negative :

Taxis are controlled by the hotel, which are very expensive $ 20.00 to go downtown Montego Bay. No'' Nightlife'' has this hotel,'' the'' nightclub opens its doors 11h00PM and it is almost empty every night and sports bar open 24 hours which is almost empty too. What I deplore is that the personel of the hotel Directive have not informed you that there is a large and beautiful 'Nightclub' at the plaza across the street from the hotel because the owner of the Hotel RIU wants you to stay at the hotel and / or take their taxi to go downtown. There is even a'' Fleemarket'' inside the hotel? Everything is controlled by the hotel.

Positive :

I enjoyed his stay in Jamaica. Hotel Riu. Very Clean above. The Food is super good. By cons, the concept of moist buffet service restaurant half I did not like but it was still very popular.

Negative :

The only negative is that we really can not swim in the sea we feet sink into the sand and it is not pleasant dutout. Besides, it's the only thing that really in general that people also tell us. Finally I would return for the price and cleanliness

Positive :

Very nice hotel, very clean, nice big pool, the animation team is great, great show at night, 2 minutes from the airport, very good rum appleton, trippy little bar in the room (4 bottles of alcohol ), small site for those who do not like to walk, everything is nearby. Very good food at the buffet, many choices, restaurant a la carte steakhouse delicious, great steak. The jerk chicken is very good, to try it. Very good beer, RED STRIKE. Tours: Negril beautiful beach (1:15 from the hotel) it reminds Playa Del Carmen. Ricks Cafe Bar to see impressive views. Ocho Rios at 1:30 of the hotel, bamboo rafting to be missed, scenery breathtaking. Dunn River Falls, great!

Negative :

The noise of departing aircraft may bother some people. The white and red wine bad. Little seafood restaurant on the map is an Asian buffet, no table service. The beach in front of the hotel is small with lots of algae in the sea, they pick them up very regularly in the sand, but for swimming, it is a flat to have algae that after we glue the body. Do not expect to Cayo Largo beach or Punta Cana :) Room a bit small, but very well.
