GREAT HOTEL

The hotel was extremely clean, the staff members were extremely accomodating and friendly, and there was alot of variety in the food selection. The nightly entertainment was incredible and alot of work was put into having a great show so i highly recommend taking advantage of it! I dont have any major reservations about this place and would 100% go back.

Dining tip: In Hotel

alot of people stress over making reservations for the different restaurants but the buffet really does offer the best option of them all. I tried all the restaurants and still ended up at the buffet because it offered better dining options esp the steakhouse which was pretty basic.

always a great time!!

We have stayed at this hotel 4 times and always have a great time. The food is great, staff is always helpful and happy. We have never had a problem at this hotel. We go just to relax at the beach, no schedule just do whatever we want.

Not so great weekend getaway

I have been to many all inclusives inclusing other Rius. I was highly disappointed at the Riu Montego Bay. I stayed at the sister resort next door two months prior and in comparison it was night and day in terms of quality and service. The Riu Montego Bay was poorly maintained. The rooms are outdated and lots of broken fixtures. The pool was missing tiles throughout and very moldy and dirty. Our room had "unexpected visitors." The food was just okay and the staff did not keep the buffets replenished as it should be. The staff were not rude but they were not attentive or as friendly as the Riu Palace next door. The alcohol drinks are horrible. Very watered down and limited options. There isn't 24 hour access to food unless you consider empty nacho tray and stale popcorn food. The entertainment was good probably one of the best amenities there. If you can spend the little extra for the palace or go somewhere else. At least until they refurbish and hotel and features.

There are shops for souvenirs right across the main road but you have to bargain to 50% or less than the price shown.

Only OK experience

Ok so my stay wasn't bad but it was not great either. To start with the food was the same thing all 5 days we were there, absolutely NO variety. The only time we had something different were the days we made a reservation to the restaurant they have on site,which still wasn't amazing. Our room did not get cleaned for 2 days, even though I placed the clean my room sign on the door they just threw it back under my door but never cleaned it. The hotel is dated but still is kept up. The beach was very small and not as clean as expected. As far as the staff goes not so friendly for the most part with a few exceptions at the pool bar. You definitely need to see David, "James Bond 007", Ricardo, and Winston. These guys really were awesome the energy, the enthusiasm was amazing made our time at the pool very enjoyable. Make sure you have David make you a "bone crusher". Everyone else was just not friendly they don't really even smile,makes it uncomfortable. If they were to train the staff to be more hospitable i may return, otherwise I would chose a different resort.

If you want to buy souvenirs buy some while on tours, the shops across the street are way over priced. If buying alcohol fontina local market, not the hit shops

Great getaway location for the price

I've stayed at the Riu Montego Bay - All Inclusive twice in the past two years and have been fairly satisfied both times. The resort is less than 10 minutes from the airport which is a huge plus, and has great amenities. Great getaway location for the price.

Nice hotel, reasonable pricing

When we arrived our check in was probably the fastest and easiest I have ever experienced. The 90 minutes of free lobby WiFi per device is nice also. (Although it should be standard in guestrooms) The beach is nice but the ocean is a bit slimy after walking out 4-5 feet. The view is gorgeous and the fresh grilled chicken on the beach is excellent. I would recommend staying here for families or friends, and couples young and old. One last note, the entertainment team put on an impressive grease musical on our last night, and the beach party they put on was a lot of fun. (Dancing, drinking, music, of course)
