busy-moms escape

Staff was overall friendly but frequently seemed as if they didn't want to be bothered (getting an extra towel or an iron). I know all busineeses cut corners to save money but at times felt uncomfortably obvious (difficulty getting condiments with meals, all inclusive buffet was great but once servers involved, things were doled out, took forever to receive & not with a Smile... I would say 50% of staff was very attentative, friendly & the resort itself was one of the funnest I've stayed at (shows, games, entertainment, sports) the staff were multi-talented and knew how to work a crowd!! Despite the little unfriendly, unwelcoming and slack amenitiy service; the beautiful grounds and 'fun' that's in the aura is Right On.. yah mon

No top shelf booze and you only get 90 minutes a day of free wifi. Everything else about this place is good. Close to airport. Buffet is good and workers are chill.

Yearly Jamaican Vacation

I stayed with my son and 2 friends at RIU in Montego Bay from 6/1 to 6/8/14. The rooms were comfortable. The food was delicious. The staff were all great, very helpful and friendly. I have stayed at other hotels in Jamaica before but the RIU was the best. This is my hotel to stay at each year when I go back.

Great Jamaican experience

Worth every penny. Staff wonderful and welcoming. We tipped, and staff was appreciative. Entertainment crew is amazing put on great shows. Breakfast buffet is good lots of choices. There is a chef that cooks omelets Lunch buffet is ok- there is a cook for sandwiches - and there is a spot next to the beach that cooks jerk chicken amazing. Dinner at restaurants was great. buffet dinner was good they have a pasta chef he is great. Drinks great. But stick to rum. The tequila and vodka drinks are just ok. We did not know this before we went but on average the staff worked 50 hours a week makes like 2 dollars a hour. I wish I knew because I would have tipped more. try snorkeling -- you will not regret it - 30 dollars for 1.5 hrs and 2 coral reefs Had the best time, a week went by super fast.

Accurately priced

Amenities: - Room was just fine. Only issues were with balcony door, which had confusing lock, and also the 2-day beverage restock... Generally speaking, all inclusives refill the fridge every day -Pool was great, though swim up bar appeared dirty -Beach was fantastic Location: -Mahoe bay not Montego... must see montego bay to get real feel of "dah bay mon!" Staff: -Great people. Slower pace than I am use to. Please note I am an anxious person from chicago who expects his deep dish pizza to be ready in 10 minutes...

Great vacation!

It was a great trip. Close to the airport, so not a long bus trip. Great interactive staff. Good food. Only complaint would be the sewer smell that came and went down on the beach. It wasn't horrible but noticeable.
