Riu Negril is an all-inclusive resort destination designed for couples and families, and set on the sparkling sands of Negril beach in Jamaica. Dance to island grooves at the Pacha nightclub; dive into one of two freshwater swimming pools; and take part in non-stop activities that include table tennis, volleyball, windsurfing, sailing and kayaking. Guests who simply want to relax can tan on the soft beaches before stepping into the Renova Spa for manicures, facials, massages and wraps. Riu Negril even has a Jerk station serving up local Jamaican cuisine six days a week.

Neighborhood
The location of the Riu Negril is fascinating, being situated between Bloody Bay and Orange Bay in one of Negril's most secluded areas. Vistas feature the Caribbean Sea and Booby Cay, an isle known for its influx of birds and wildlife. Close by, the Rhodes Hall Plantation offers horseback rides along the beachfront - and it's also home to Jamaica's largest crocodile population. Visit nearby Green Island for a glimpse into Jamaican history; this village, now something of a ghost town, was once one of the most prosperous places on the island, particularly in terms of sugar cane production.
Hints and tips
If you're hungry for a snack at 2am, or looking for a nightcap before hitting the hay, the all-inclusive services at the Riu Negril are open 24 hours, so night owls can make the most of the midnight oil.

THE RESORT IS OUTDATED, NO 24/7 BARS ON MONDAYS AND NO NIGHT CLUB

The resort was very outdated. I stayed at the RIU Negril on March 12-17th. I went to the Island to return my dad’s ashes to his home town of Port Antonio. I checked in around 6:30 pm, I was not greeted when I walked in. I had to ask someone to retrieve my luggage from the vehicle. The manager that was on duty was Kedisha she was very rude and did not make eye contact. We asked if the resort had local rates because I wanted to rent an extra room for a good friend of mine which was a Jamaican national. Most resorts in Jamaica have local rates. The manager Kedisha immediately said there were no local rates. I then ask how much it would cost for the room for one night “she said for the one night and checkout is at 11am”. Just rude! I said never mind. We proceed to check in, which took about 30 minutes. We also requested an extra key. Our room was located in building 4 which is the last building. The building was outdated, no elevator, very far from everything and the one ice machine per building was broken in building 4. The guy that brought our bags to the room was very nice and polite. The pillow on the bed was too hard and the AC was very loud it sounded like a generator. Needless to say we didn’t get much sleep. The next morning we went to the lobby to report the AC issues. We spoke to Edward who informed us that the AC issues were known, and that all the AC was having the same issues. Edward also said the resort would be upgraded in August. He didn’t even over to send someone to check the AC out. Fast forward to March 16th this would have been my dad’s 92nd birthday so I took his ashes to his home town. The morning of the 16th I checked with the front desk about local rates and to our surprise we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady that said sure we do have local rates and it would be per night. The young lady informed us that we didn’t have to pay now but when we return to the resort that night. We went to Port Antonio to burry my dad’s ashes. Port Antonio is approximately a 6 hrs. each way from the resort. Returned to the resort that evening around 11:30 pm, checked in paid the and asked for an extra bed. We went to get something to eat and wanted to hit the night club before departing Jamaica on the 17th, well the night club didn’t open on Mondays and none of the bars were open pass midnight. I mean really I have never heard of an all-inclusive resort that didn’t have a bar open 24/7. I was very disappointed in no bars not being open 24/7, especially because I had no ice in my building. Hopefully this helps someone. The RIU in Guanacaste Costa Rica is excellent!

Beautiful Place

We just returned from 6 days here at the Riu Negril. We had a fabulous time and the location is beautiful. The staff was exceptional always smiling and friendly. Jermaine at the front desk helped us with any issues. Bubbles makes the fun happen around the pool and on the beach. Great beach volleyball but I would bring water shoes next time as we saw many sting rays right near where we swimming. You will be approached on the beach to purchase anything and everything from the locals, we did tire from saying No, thank you. The restaurants were all great for an all inclusive. Bar service was spot on, with a great selection. We never had to wait and enjoyed their specialty drinks. Bring your own large thermal cup so you don't have to make constant trips to bar. We brought lots of singles to tip the wonderful staff there, please consider doing the same. It is appreciated, not expected just the way it should be. My only complaint is that I wish they had an adult only pool as I did not enjoy small children jumping in around you.

A wonderful trip

My daughter and I spent three wonderful days at Riu Negril in December of 2014. We had a wonderful time. The staff, food, beach,entertainment, room, alcohol and atmosphere was awesome. The only minor complaints are the overpriced spa packages, no flat screen TV and being a Jamaican, I also noticed that the food spice was toned down maybe to appeal to those with a more delicate pallet. Overall we had an awesome time and will definitely go back and next time we will stay longer.

Best first time trip

It was our first time visiting Jamaica and it set the bar high for our future vacation plans. We are considering taking the trip again, with everything the same. The resort was absolutely beautiful, with breath taking views. Can't wait to do it again.

Dining tip: In Hotel

If you don't like to listen to bands, you may wish to ask for a room further from the lobby as there are several buildings... yet we were in the 2nd building, loved the band, and couldn't here them from the room.
